    Because everything starts and ends with politics.

    Do you remember terrorist RMS who started GNU and why? Industry said everthing must be blob and he just say OK the opposite Nothing else but the opposite, as every extreme needs to have its also extreme opposition.

    Politics is very easy to understand, The World is just divided among currently strongest known fuckers

    That could be easely proved by the fact that we have there about 6000 ethnicities but just about 200 countries It is obviosly impossible to have justice even with that amount of countres, let alone thing called globalism promoted by NWO

    Nah, sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not really trying to convince anyone just sharing my opinion (I didn't start it anyway). I mean, I *do* understand I'm not being scientific at all, and never expected people to really understand (just look them up themselves if they care enough or not).

    Reason being that I'm really not that interested in politics...

    If you count terrorists you should really count all those in East Europe, which don't make the news because quite frankly none in the western world is giving 2 shits about terrorism in ex-soviet states. http://blog.skepticallibertarian.com...astern-europe/
    Well that's just a wrong way to view this situation. Clearly, the USA doesn't really give a shit about East Europe terrorists? They only care about terrorists in their own nation, and that's perfectly fine?

    I mean people hate them for policing the world, but when they don't "help" other countries they're also bad? Sounds like people are jelly.

    Oh, it goes on.
    The issue is this will reach pages 4, 5, 6. Any hope of talking about what the thread is about is lost.

    Because it appears to be unmoderated, so anything goes.

    how many bombings happen without the person being Muslim or affiliated with something Islamic? Come on. You rarely see suicide bombers (if ever!) without them being linked somehow to an Islamic terrorist organization.

    Random shootings are usually not terrorists, they're just murders.
    It's unclear if many "terrorist attacks" were in fact terrorism or unstable people that acted mostly on their own and happened to be muslim, and then some terrorist organization claimed it was one of theirs (yeah right, totally trustworthy).

    Like the one where that guy drove a truck over pedestrians in France.

    And I wasn't talking about any "war".
    "Terrorism" hotspots are in low-ish-intensity warzones currently (the usual places). In the sense that what the media calls "terrorist" attacks are technically guerrilla warfare.

    I'm not counting anything because they're not my statistics. I wouldn't really put the school shooters as terrorists, because their goal is not to incite terror in most cases, it's because they have a mental problem. They don't have a greater goal and they don't care about terrorizing the nation. You can't seriously compare that with Islamic terrorist organizations that even took down WTC, come on. Random school shooters are small fish in comparison.

    The right to bear arms is in their constitution, so no. There are AI developments to detect guns much better than simple metal detectors (and also non-invasive), currently on test in several schools (undisclosed for obvious reasons), so... won't be a problem for much longer.

    First of all no country should have the right to just bomb around in other countries just because they are idiots. This would already avoid 50% of the problem. The other half of the problem is, that the USA / CIA messed up those counties they are bombing now to start with. Maybe the USA could stop meddling with such other countries to start with, ..!?
    Man, I wasn't talking about that. I was talking about the bombs in Germany and France from the muslim terrorists that happened awhile back (the idiots being Merkel and co). Believe it or not but a lot of Europeans are disgruntled at the EU's decisions, why do you think Brexit happened? Anyway it's not the topic but I wanted to clarify what I meant.

    You can apply logic all you want, but if you keep pulling data out of your ass like above you will still reach flawed conclusions. Logic alone is not reliable, scientific method is. And scientific method requires valid data first, THEN logic.

    No this is called smokescreen to profit the situation and claim they are doing something without actually doing a damn.
    Killing mooks is the least efficient way to win a war.

    If they were really doing this efficiently we would see Saudi Arabia burning, that's the main source of the money required to support ISIS now and Al Qaeda back then.

    Once the supply lines stop, then mooks can be mopped up.
    I agree about the scientific method, but I'm not that interested in politics to care enough to dig this up, sorry. (so I know I'm not stating any facts, just my opinion). However, I'm pretty sure it's true, how many bombings happen without the person being Muslim or affiliated with something Islamic? Come on. You rarely see suicide bombers (if ever!) without them being linked somehow to an Islamic terrorist organization.

    Random shootings are usually not terrorists, they're just murders. Terrorism is when they do want to inspire terror into the population. Those people usually don't give a shit, they just want to kill people because of whatever reason (mental problem), they even kill themselves after the fact without working for someone else.

    And I wasn't talking about any "war".

    why is there politics in a tech forum? this is why I hate SJW people they have to force politics (especially their agenda) everywhere, even when it's not needed and does more harm than good. Personally I would just remove/close this all together ....and if there is some warning system (or timeout or alike) then I would maybe give it everyone involved (& not make it one sided)... Do I have opinions about this shit oc but I'm smart enough to know where to talk about it.
