If you love americas dominance over the world you will vote for Hillary Clinton. she will rule with a steel hand. Dont gently caress around with trump. His nation is a poo poo nation.

Yes, because clearly planting multiple explosive devices in dumpsters is not connected to terrorism! Genius!

It's only a prank unless it's Islamic terrorism, I guess?

Here's the plan, martyr: you will infiltrate America. Unfortunately we used up our gun budget black marketing rifles into France, so we can't spare you a hundo to go to wal-mart and buy a gun. Just get a knife, but like, a small one. Keep it cheap here. Then inflict as many shallow cuts as you can before getting shot by police.

I like DeBlasio's full on 1984 double speak, the explosion was an "intentional act" but not "terrorism"? Who places IEDs in dumpsters and isn't trying to commit acts of terrorism? I don't think these are science projects gone awry.

From this and my earlier quote I don't know if he's unwilling to call anything domestic terrorism, or if he's taking the bold stance of being a politician who doesn't scream TERROR TERROR TERROR TERRORISM! as his speech.

Probably the former. Nobody has class to avoid the latter.

It's possible bombs have been going off in Detroit and no one is reporting them. Detroit already looks like a bomb has gone off and no one can tell the difference.

We got in early calling the place Germany and them Germans, given they call the place Deutschland and themselves Deutsche. We couldn't have come up with a word that sounds less like their actual name if we tried in our language!

Bonus points for Japan and Nippon as well.

ED: Yeah I know this has nothing to do with it, it's just funny since most non-axis countries (with the exception of Italy) are at least called something close to how they say their own name in their language. Those two we just decided to play "Let's call them something entirely loving different." It'd be like if Germany knew America as Scheiße Land.

Pros and cons of the names:

ISIS: The best choice, the mainstream choice, the most workable choice. The first name popularized in the US, based off of a sloppy-but-not-horrible translation of their name at the time. Inflicted collateral damage on Archer, a prog metal band, and some e-payment service. It's also good to poo poo on ISIS's name change.

ISIL: The worst choice, the choice for people who smugly call glass a liquid. Pedants will say that this translation is more accurate than "ISIS", because the L is for "Levant", but the second I should really be for something like Mesopotamia, and either way, it's not their name anymore, so if accuracy is your concern, then why are you sticking with it?

Daesh: The pretentious choice, unless you are a native speaker of Arabic. Like a gringo rolling the r when ordering a burrito at Taco Bell. ISIS doesn't give a gently caress that you're referring to them by a derogatory name.

Islamic State: Technically accurate, not a bad choice. The "proper" name, per them. Understandably, people don't want to appear to be appeasing ISIS by respecting their name change. Somewhat oddly, some people reject the name instead because they don't want to give Islam a bad name, which is pretty much unprecedented. Were there people who refused to say "USSR", because it wasn't really socialist? What about the Christian Coalition?
