Re: "Shock and Awe". Do you remember that?

Before the Iraq war there was the brutal 8 year long Iran-Iraq war in which the US/Europe backed Iraq to prevent the Iranians from taking that strategic country. Now imagine if Iran would have won that war, and then swept into Syria and took that country too. That, in effect, is exactly what idiot N...

Re: Criticism of Islam

All you need to know about Mike Pompeo is that most of his life he has been in business with the Koch brothers. Charles and David Koch, the notorious billionaires, are all about petroleum. The Iran Deal of 2015 has the effect of reducing oil prices, since it allows Iran to export more oil and incre...

Re: Sri Lanka declares state of emergency in wake of communal violence

It is understandable for the Sri Lankan authorities to try and restore order and calm, and for the local Buddhist population to be upset. However, the 'Buddhists' who did this, can't even seem to observe the most basic of Buddhist moral precepts: "On Tuesday morning, the body of a 28-year-old Musli...

Re: Feminism for men

Someone would have to conduct a study to see exactly how much violence against women comes from immigrants in order to verify.

But it certainly seems like the videos are right-wing propaganda.

Unfortunately, I think this is the type of propaganda people like.

Sleeping pills actually cause insomnia, and over time they will damage your liver.

Re: Sri Lanka declares state of emergency in wake of communal violence

Its significant because for the last few decades Sri Lanka was victim of one of the worst civil wars in which Tamil Tigers fought brutally for an independent state for the Tamil people.

Re: Trump's tough stance on Nth Korea appears to have worked

It is different what politicians say in public and what they said privately. Trump talks tough to the camera but he and his military advisers are sending secret messages to N.Korea, Iran, etc begging them and asking for deals. Because its not tough talk but tough action that these leaders care about...

Re: Criticism of Islam

All those terrorists are affiliated with each other, including the so-called 'Free Syrian Army". Each has the same goal; which is the same goal as the USA. Does the US want to have a Caliphate?

Re: Criticism of Islam

However, on the level of right speech, I think posts which slander and criticise other religions (and practitioners of those religions) without any substantive argument or evidence - are deeply contrary to a very central moral principle in Buddhism. I simply don't know how people can indulge in thi...

Re: Criticism of Islam

Greetings Kamran, The Jihadi terrorist are losing thanks to Russia and Iran who have destroyed their sanctuaries. They're losing first and foremost because their purse strings were cut. That's what helped give Russia and Iran the upper hand. Is Saudi Arabia, the US, and Israel doing anything to con...
