I used to keep up on ISIL activities, but after fox news broadcast that video like some sort of gruesome entertainment I stopped giving them any attention. I follow the Peshmerga and the PKK on their exploits, but that's more so because I find the PKK interesting to read about than reading about who ISIL is fighting against and why. They aren't barbaric hooligans who want the world's attention, they pretty much fight to preserve their language and culture in places like Turkey where they have been long persecuted.

Just keep this in mind, that part of the world is really ****ed up. You can be home with your family in a small village where supposed terrorists may be located, and in one moment your family could be dead because of an air strike to eliminate a threat. Civilians have become casualties of war for as long as war has existed, but the fact that unrest has plagued that area for so long, that's all some people in that area know. Hatred, revenge, and ignorance are very powerful, and they can turn you into something with no empathy or forgiveness. If any of you grew up in that area, you might be the one chopping off Assad regime heads, or laying waste to US backed governments.

I'm trying to keep my post as neutral as possible, I'm not one for politics, but from the information I've come across I've tried to see it from a different perspective.

You should make a timeline of events and articles.

The humanitarian situation in Syria remains extremely challenging. In the fourth year of the conflict, there are more than 3 million Syrian refugees in the region. In addition, over 50,000 Syrians have sought asylum in more than 90 countries outside the region. Inside Syria, an estimated 10.8 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, including some 6.5 million internally displaced people (IDPs).

No it just that most of the discussion about this kind of stuff happens when people disagree about a topic. Look at the threads where everyone agrees, most of them are short lived.

Who said I don't care and am not paying attention? You know better.

If there's an event that happens (like Paris) I'll discuss it.

But I'm not gonna waste any time bantering about an insane ideology in an of itself.

why do you find it necessary to come in and tell me how you don't want to talk about the thread topic

why not just ignore it if that's what you want to do? i don't go in the disc golf thread and bombard everybody with my lack of interest in disc golf. so kindly **** off outta my isis thread if you twats don't wanna talk about isis.
