  •  Its just frustration. And I feel that way too. (3+ / 0-)

    Frustrated that a teeny section of the world really just holds everybody else hostage. The crazy shit that happens there doesn't seem to be happening anywhere else. It's all religion and fighting and religion and crazy.

    I'm sick of it and I'd be lying if I said I never wondered what it would like without all the craziness over there. It just seems like the drama and tribal animosities and centuries old religious wars and grudges and honor and blah blah keeps the region mired in 900 BC. And really I wouldn't give a shit except its not 900 BC and they have access to weaponry and some have nukes. Others have oil. And they all have us by the balls.

    The image is hardly the worst shit I've seen on Facebook. But to each his own. I think it's mostly an expression of frustration. I don't condone genocide. I do understand the frustration behind the image though.

    For the record, I am not a member of Courtesy Kos. Just so you know. Don't be stupid. It's election season. My patience is short.

      theism.  Europe has a long and bloody history.  America not-so-much because we are a younger nation, but we seem to be in overdrive lately trying to catch up with sabre-rattling against Iran.

      I personally find it hilarious that the 4th crusade, you know one of the great efforts to liberate the holy land from the muslims, instead ended up sacking Constantinople and setting up a stooge to rule the Byzantine Empire.

      I guess what I am saying is that facebook post would have gone over perfectly well in 1200 AD.  So, who is stuck in the middle ages...???

      and their contempt for the Latin schools was applauded by Theodoric himself, who gratified their prejudices, or his own, by declaring that the child who had trembled at a rod would never dare to look upon a sword.
