    So he can move the goalposts further? Hell the fuck no.



    You are policing language now? Hell the fuck no.

    Perhaps because your actual suggestion was and is patently ridiculous. You can dress it up however which way you want, but it's still fucking ridiculous. Stop worrying about what the gulf states do...

    My favorite part is when we worked to overthrow a repressive dictatorship (that we and GB propped up in the first place) only to discover that the power vacuum such a move opened up when we disbanded...

    Question:

    Considering that Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt and Kuwait each have taken more than the largest non-Middle Eastern state - Germany - and indeed some have ten to twenty times as...

    Places where there is great physical space that are also sites of genocidal forced mass population movements:

    The badlands of Oklahoma
    The steppes of Siberia
    The Arabian desert
  6. No. No there fucking isn't. The nations...

    No.

    No there fucking isn't.

    The nations that border Syria are Israel, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey.

    - Iraq is a shithole and in no state to accommodate anything, and yet still has a...

    I'm reminded of a conversation I had with a French backpacker over their riots in 2005. "Hooligans!" he spat; with a word dismissing any notion that the origins may have been racially motivated.

    True, you're both racist in entirely unique ways!



    You also have far fewer Black people because your slave trade primarily sent them to your colonies. And yet.

    Left/Right/Center is a conflation of two axes - economic and social liberty. What America views as "left" has fewer economic liberties and more social liberties, whereas what America views as "right"...

    The New York rags, in aggregate, comprise what Pulitzer and Hearst's papers were once decried as - "yellow journalism" - a criticism specifically given to New York papers owing to the cheapness of...

    I didn't add those for the same reason I didn't add USA Today, the Associated Press, or Reuters. Because I don't give a fuck. I said 'Papers of Note,' and when I see the LA Times make an impact in...

    You can't honestly believe that this arbitrary formalized codification of symbols is our sole means of relating to one another? I am really fucking good at linguistics but fuck if I'm going to eschew...

    The fact that you don't know the answer to that is exactly why you need more varied interests.



    So very much yes.

    Well, if but for the entire Indian subcontinent, Ireland, Palestine (and, well, the rest of the Middle East along with France, hello Transjordan!), most of southern Africa (including whatever the...

    No, it sounds like she sees the point of escapism, and is worried that you're replacing life with it. After all, it sounds like she's rebuffing you for talking about videogames all the time.

    I'm...

    Yes. By far.

    Qatar, UAE, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain - These are desert nations with tiny populations and rely heavily on 'guest workers' to get anything done to the point where they have slave...

    When we fucked around and destabilized the whole region for three generations. Osama bin Laden may have been a prodigal son of Saudi high mucketymucks, but he found ample ground in which to spur...

    I don't know what's worse - that somebody thinks Hideo Kojima's writings are anywhere in the same ballpark as mature (seriously, read a fucking book, people), or that somebody thinks Hideo Kojima is...

    In that stead, rather than defining the difference between race and species, a better argument is defining the difference between refugee and migrant, and what the long-term plan is if and when the...

    Only because they don't have an army to do so. Japan's been really docile for 70 years too, for some odd reason. But again: NATO.

    Germany still has its anti-immigration parties and a love-hate...

    Rehashing long debunked bullshit is not a productive means of discussing the topic. Indeed, it's quite the opposite: It functions as a political tool to stall actual productive discussion by...

    Well, this thread went nowhere productive.

    Hey guys, let's conflate the social construct of race with the scientific categorization of species! This can't possibly be a topic that people have ran...

    If you have to argue that "I'm not racist, but..." then guess what.

    Funny thing is, when they're not spouting hilariously offensive slogans, the right-wingers in various European (and American)...
