Religion is arguably the most powerful emotional impetus; a fact well known by the sadistic nihilists that lead ISIS, al Qaeda, etc.

Exactly. People arguing against this seem to think I'm implying Islam has nothing to do with the violence. What I am saying is the fact that Islam is being used as the fuel is secondary to the fact that it is their government and circumstances that are driving the whole thing.

We can have a theological debate all day, but targeting the religion will not fix anything. Emphasizing the religion will only reinforce the negative stereotypes the ignorant and uneducated among us feel towards ALL Muslims. We want people to rally around the right cause, which is to fight the oppressive government currently enforcing this theocracy on their people.

You're just on a whole other level of ignorant it's actually impressive how much you don't understand

Back to Trump

His first military operation kills 8 women and children and a US soilder and gets called a success

No one has any idea what was specifically accomplished

Among those killed was the sister of the American son of a jihadist that was droned by Obama "accidentally" without reasonable cause nonetheless a trial

Will Trump be the best terrorist recruiter yet? I feel like it's a competition
