It is doomed inevitably, but it doesn't mean that I agree with you on the solution. I'm not even opposed to a Europe in union, just the economic model. My fear is if you abolish the EU what do you replace it with in the short term? The European nations have been at each others throats since time im...

I think he's on about inter-EU immigration. Actually I do not mind the people who come from other E.U. countries because they tend to bring valuable skills (we have a shortage of people in the medical field and also in certain technical fields) and it is easier to find common ground with them. Neit...

I can spend years describing everything that is wrong with it (and this is also true for the "elites" in charge of the U.S. regardless of what political party they belong to), yet no one has this kind of time. I do not see anything wrong with diverting money and resources to "unhealthy economies", y...

Islam wants to destroy Europe, and France is helping them. I have been painfully aware of this for years, yet I am simply not a sympathizer of any terrorism regardless of what kind it is. Do you really think I did not figure this out already or do you seriously think that anyone who is not going to...

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jul/16/french-arrest-norwegian-terror-plot-suspect?INTCMP=SRCH It appears that the suspect was convicted of murder when he lived in Norway, yet was released after less than 20 years. I really do not sympathize with the idea of "forgiveness" for people who were pr...

Despite agreeing with most posts on here about unsettling similarities between certain far right individuals and islamists, I do not think all euroskeptics and nationalists should be demonized or labelled as far right. There are reasons why some people have voted for them, even if they were only cho...

This confirms everything I have been suspecting about the dishonesty of so called "nationalists" and so called "anti jihadists". If only I had completely followed "intuition" (for lack of a better word). The article is quite accurate about "the left" (so to speak) being falsely perceived as alligned...

I was never optimistic about these uprisings and I think the way western governments have meddled in them is a catastrophe for human rights and security. However, Libya has always been misruled and Christians in Libya were never granted much freedom under Gadaffi. He was virulently antiwestern, supp...

It is possible that those in charge are finally realizing that salafism and related ideologies are a menace to peace within French society. Yes - and it's liberal Muslims and ex-Muslims who (from what I've read) seem to be relieved that governments are finally adopting a tiny little bit of common s...

It is possible that those in charge are finally realizing that salafism and related ideologies are a menace to peace and solidarity within French society. I think the interior minister has made the correct decision, although I have misgivings about the foreign policy decision to invade Mali, none of...

I really hope the U.S. or Canada grants him and his family refugee status if this is considered since the Spanish government has revoked his rights to reside in Spain as a refugee. Unless the Spanish High Court decides that he should keep his right to live in Spain, he risks being deported to his co...

That's a much more complicated state of affairs and I think there is wrong on both sides there. Remember the events that lead up to the invasion of Cyprus - i.e. the Greek fascist military junta trying to launch a coup in Cyprus in order to annex the entire island into union with Greece This is als...

This is the point I was trying to make in the second sentence of my last post.

But it's worth noting that the famous secularist reformers of Turkey had quite a few fascist tendencies themselves, and it is still illegal to talk about the Armenian genocide in Turkey. This is true. The Turkish forces who fought the victors of WW1 after the former Ottoman empire was occupied, led...

I was afraid someone would suggest something like this. What is meant anyways by this deliberate vagueness when using the term "mental ilness" :?: :?: Is an otherwise sane person with post traumatic stress disorder the same as someone with antisocial personality disorder or with paranoid schizophren...

I have to read more about this when I get the chance. It seems that everyone gets diagnosed with some neurological/psychological disorder or another these days, so it is hard to tell whether or not he actually had a.s.d. His facial expression in his photos betray complete disconnection, yet this cou...
