Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

Sure on can and one should. Read a dictionary. We have had this discussion before and I recommended you go ask a black person or a Native American about the distinction between simple and systemic racism. Did you try that? No, because you are beneficiary of systemic racism, so you don't actually ha...

Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

What country doesn't have a bit of blood on its hands, you know Greg, if you read a bit of your own history even the Greeks have been involved in a few atrocities and I wouldn't mind a side bet that they stretch back a bit further than 1788. This is called Whataboutism, a variant of the tu quoque l...

Karma does not work that way. There is no such thing as collective karma. If what you are asserting is correct, then even the poorest humans are complicit in the suffering of all animals.
Huh?

No. Use the dictionary, shaunc is quite correct. What you are talking about is systemic racism, and that is different than simple racism.
No. You cannot separate the two.

Anyway, you should also ask yourself who wrote the definition and for whom.

Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

1. You are white, well good for you. I am not white enough for your type of white. 2. Rascism is prejudice, discrimination or antagonistic towards a person or people based upon their skin colour and/or nationality. No. Racism is the application of power on this basis. An Aborigine cannot be racist ...

@Grigoris, a country like the US being rich and developed does not mean the rest of the world suffers. Who taught you economics?
So you believe in infinite resources? Who taught you ecology? ;)

Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

Greg, you often sound very rascist and bigoted towards white people in your posts. I would have thought that rascism and bigotry would be against the forum rules regardless of what colour or country it is aimed towards 1. I am white, well... according to Anglo-Saxon-Irish types I am not exactly whi...

If America did not provide security for NATO for the past 80 years, ya'll would have been Crimea on steroids back in Stalin's era. Maybe, maybe not. If you travel to former eastern bloc countries like Croatia or the Czech Republic (for example) you may be surprised with what you will see. Not all t...

Bunch of socialist bullshit. Well that is an intelligent comeback if I have ever seen one. Very similar to the type of response one would expect to receive on the Stormfront site (or any other alt-Right social network). Talking about socialists: Roosevelt, now there was a socialist.

Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

We will agree to disagree on the value of the US Hegemony in world history. Yes, I imagine we will. Just that here in Greece we are living the dream to the fullest: as the U$ aircraft carriers that launched the missile attacks refuel and re-supply in American bases in Greek ports, refugees fleeing ...

Yes.

Do you know what the Syrian people have been going through for the past 7 years? Can you understand why they may view foreign organisations with some suspicion?

Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

Freedom House was established in 1941 in New York City. Its creation was a result of a merger of two groups that had been formed, with the quiet encouragement of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, to encourage popular support for American involvement in World War II at a time when isolationist sentim...

Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

The US is a Republic. Which is just the Latin word for the Greek term Democracy. As for "empire," one of the reasons we are so bad at it is our free press, a fact that drives Herr Trump crazy. He would shut down the press tomorrow if he thought he could. Frankly, we like the press more than we like...

Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

The US government does not kill journalists. We actually have a free press. It is built into our constitution. So, that is a clue about whose "lies" one should find more reliable. You don't need to kill journalists in the US, they are silenced via media monopolies. This is also total nonsense. Wher...
