I dunno if this has been posted yet but lol DnD is already getting back to "this extremist group isn't actually bad and are basically the republicans of Egypt/Iraq/Syria"

The Brown Menace posted:

Not incorrect. I mean sure we'd all love to pretend that ISIS is the worst poo poo ever, and they actually are a strong contender, but ISIS is also very good at keeping up (sharia) law and order. They don't just randomly gently caress with people, and many of the freedoms they restrict are ones which the people they govern never used or intended to use anyway.

I'm for non-intervention and I am completely cool with this.

In fact at least regarding Iraq/Syria at the moment my preferred foreign policy was best described in that article SS posted: “We’ll kill you if you mess with us, but otherwise go die”

Well duh, I just want to see someone say that they're ok with people killing each other like animals while the rest of the world does literally nothing without also talking about specific mistakes the administration made as if it could have been handled properly by a 17 year old goon with a few counter culture history novels under his belt.

There's ample history of helicopters accepting surrenders, by the way. The Viet Cong were just as capable of disappearing back into the jungle, aircraft would just radio their location and soldiers would come and take them into custody.

poo poo, didn't Libya or one of those other Middle East shitholes sponsor terrorists who jumped a loving cruise ship in like 85?

gently caress, there's always been piracy. Fishing boats off the coast of Washington/Oregon had to watch out for getting jumped by Chinese and Japanese ships, the Coasties used to sit in the tavern and bitch about it.

What I've wondered since this modern day Somalia pirate bullshit has started is why people keep painting the goddamn pirates as plucky underdogs just trying to make some money for their impoverished villages and poo poo.

Why the gently caress don't we have the Navy go out, take some loving Jarheads with them, and remind the motherfuckers why pirates quit hitting the US and the other nations.

Let's see how popular you are in your loving shithole, ragtag, built out of ocean flotsam garbage village when the Navy sits offshore and loving bombs the poo poo out you. After all, infrastructure and support areas are legal logistical targets. Afterwards, we just send in the goddamn Marines to mop up any piece of poo poo that remembered that sometimes people fight back and managed to run away like the little bitches they are.

Pull the goddamn Mighty-Moe out of loving storage, load it up with loving HE thermobaric, and bomb their barbaric shithole villages till there's nothing left but a base relief map of a goddamn anime watching teenage spergs face. Every time these lovely pirates in their loving stolen bullshit rear end outboard motor rowboats and stolen loving grape smuggler cigarette boats hit a loving ship, don't negotiate, don't do poo poo but just sit offshore and bomb them until they wave poo poo stained drawers over their head in surrender and beg to give back the goddamn prisoners.

The first world has been too goddamn nice to these loving savages for too loving long. We follow RoE, we try to rebuild the poo poo they destroy, we build them a loving hospital and they wreck the place then complain when their retard rear end gets ebola or whatever hellhole disease brewed up in the goddamn sewer they call a city. We try to give them aid, hold loving benefits, give them money, technology, all of that poo poo so they can be modern loving nations, and they just blow up or sell it for more loving weapons to the loving Russians. Then they talk smack about how they can't be defeated while they wave around loving weapons that better nations created and manufactured because they're still building poo poo in their garages and throwing loving rocks at tanks.

They wanna play war? They wanna claim their part of the big boys? Find, we do a WW-II fighting in the Pacific and Europe. Piss on it, let's invite the Russians and Chinese along too, we can all showcase our brand new weapons, and chase the loving pirates, and the loving bullshit acronym murdering shitbags with them, so far back in the trees we won't see them for decades. We can show these assholes why nobody wanted World War III by just banding together and turning the goddamn Middle East into a loving nature preserve. Show them that we couldn't give a poo poo less about their loving oil, their loving bullshit cobbled together child raping culture and light the loving oil wells on fire like it's 1991 then throw their dead into the oil fires so we don't have to worry about them somehow spreading disease, stench, and stupidity even after their dead.

Blow a loving hole so far in their psyche that every time they see a picture of a loving white person or an America, EU, or Russian flag they roll on their backs and piss all over their stomachs in submission.

People wanna bitch about bloodthirsty? People wanna act like we're being overboard now? gently caress it, off shore shelling like it's 1991 or the loving Bible again. Give them 40 days and 40 nights of sustained bombardment, air strikes, and assholes with nothing better to do then blow poo poo up. If it has 2 or more walls, hit it with a goddamn JDAM or MOAB. If it's a group of 1 or more, who gives a poo poo about confirming poo poo, Hellfires all around and follow it up with a goddamn offshore bombardment 21 gun salute to the ammunition that valiantly gave its life to rid the planet of some goddamn child beheading animals.

I'm tired of hearing about the "noble insurgent" which handwaves away doing Billy Badass driveby's on motherfuckers and hacking off teenage girl's heads. That brag on YouTube about how tough they are but the second someone shoots back they start crying about how they are being picked on and how it isn't fair that just because they cut off a teenage girl's head and hosed her corpse that it's "their culture" because like they've always been, they're loving cowards that avoid a straight up fight because they know they'll get their asses kicked the minute they stop hiding behind other people.

Go Highway to Hell on their asses. Leave nothing behind but blackened bodies that are still frozen, screaming, trying to climb out of what they thought was a badass war machine that we just turned into a loving coffin with two 19 year old privates and a loving AT-4. If they run, we call it a fighting retreat, and stay with it, not even slow down as we just keep loving killing them and driving by their corpses, which now smell better then they ever did. Chase them back to their homes, board that poo poo up, and call in loving 8" HEWP on their asses, then napalm the loving wreckage. I'd say roast hot-dogs, but they're so goddamn nasty even fire can't cure the funk they'd get all over the meat.

Then they'll be whining and begging, claiming that they're being picked on. Same motherfuckers laughing about cutting off kid's heads or machinegunning them on their way to school, will be there wringing their hats and whining their loving asses off that it isn't fair. That people are being mean to them, and don't they have the right to self-determination. Completely ignoring the fact that every time we try to let them have the right of self-determination they use it to rape children and behead old men. That they've proven time and time again they're nothing but the more useless parts of humanity that is more useless then the sand that makes up their precious deserts because at least you can make glass out of sand, and the only thing you can make out of them is a greasy stain that stinks less then they did and probably contributes more to humanity then they ever would have in their life. But they'd still whine and cry, even after claiming they're the baddest motherfuckers on the planet with the AK-47's they traded the only virgin in the village for to some drunken Russian who just wanted to get out of their lovely country. They'd whine, cry, say they're just being picked on for practicing their religion. Waaaah, it's not fair!

Guess what, Abdul, life isn't loving fair.

We let them go to the UN, cry like little bitches, then when they walk out, grab their asses on the steps, then shoot them in the back of the head on the steps, and walk the gently caress off.

These assholes think they know warfare? That just because they stole some loving vehicles that might as well been built by loving magic as far as their dumb backwards asses are concerned, they think they're hot poo poo? They got sold 1950's old Soviet trash and think that because it can kill other backwards rear end savages it makes them hot poo poo?

Let's break out the toys. Remind them of why we're the goddamn superpowers and First World, and they're a bunch of desert dwelling retards that the world wouldn't give a flying gently caress about if it wasn't for the fact they kill each other and gently caress their child sex slaves on top of oil that for right now is useful. Show them that when it comes to killing motherfuckers in job lots, fast and furious, that we're number one.

Wanna know why Japan was a success and the Middle East isn't? Why Germany was a success and they couldn't succeed with a trillion dollars of welfare from their betters?

Because all a loving Arab understands is a boot on his neck and the muzzle of a gun screwed into the back of his flea bitten head.

We showed Japan that if they didn't straighten up and act like grownups, we'd nuke them into loving nothing but ash and memories of failure. We bombed Germany so loving bad that they are STILL digging up artillery shells and loving bombs when they work on their loving roads.

If we'll do that to each other, the dipshit fleabitten retards of the Middle East need to stop and think of what we'll do to them.

The Middle East needs to be reminded that for all their bullshit, all their goddamn posturing, they aren't about poo poo, and if it wasn't for the goddamn military welfare scraps they get tossed by better nations, who left the loving Arab civilizations in the dust and garbage where it belongs during the goddamn Middle Ages, they'd still be using swords and loving spears on each other. That except for oil, the only thing they have is sand, rocks, and stupidity.

Hit the loving place so goddamn hard the loving continental plate cracks open and we can have the survivors out there with buckets scooping up the oil that the rest of the loving world needs and their backwards asses wouldn't even know how to use if it wasn't for the other nations who have tolerated their goddamn nonsense for too loving long.

Peace in the Middle East? The last half of the 20th Century has shown us that the only time there was peace in the Middle East was when you killed enough of them that the rest ran away and hid in their loving caves and wouldn't come out. And then you have to bomb their loving caves now and then to remind them that no matter what they loving think, they don't matter in the long term, they're a second rate civilization that was propped up by their loving betters and now their betters are loving tired of their bullshit because we want to move on in the world and they want to pretend it's 1014 instead of 2014.

Iran wants nukes? Give them to them. The same way we gave them to Japan. Let them see that nukes aren't toys. I know that they might as well be magic for as well as they understand them, so maybe it's time for another Magic Show, where we can headline "The Incredible Disappearing Arab" and at least then the rest of the world might get some loving amusement out of it all.

Because gently caress them. We gave them their chance to straighten their poo poo out and all they can do is kill old men and children and brag about how hot poo poo they are.

They honestly think that the West is afraid of going to war because we might get hurt? gently caress no. We remember what we're capable of. We looked at what we could do and went "you know, maybe there's a better way..." and they think it's cowardice. We oughta give them a loving taste of it, a whole goddamn plate. Tie them to a chair like the fat gently caress in SE7EN and force feed them war till they get the loving point that they're a third rate bunch of nations, full of borderline subhumans who follow the rambling meandering words of a goddamn child raping goat thief.

Remind them that the US, the EU, Russia, and China are all better than warfare then their quasi-medieval asses have been in centuries. That is isn't Saladin against the loving Crusades, this is a bunch of yowling apes against people so far ahead of them they might as well be invaded by aliens. And since they're fine with chemical weapons, then we show them that their lovely VX knockoffs and sarin loving gas has got nothing on what we've come up. Remind them that the First World has been using gas since we exterminated an entire generation in the trenches of World War I and thought that was such a great time we did that poo poo again and called it World War II just so we could see what else we could invent to kill motherfuckers.

Show them that if they can't act right, if they can't act like this is the 21st Century and we're supposed to be beyond beheading children, then they're excused from the class.

Forever.

That's cool and all but have you considered that maybe we just aren't paying enough attention to their ethnic differences and that's why they're constantly murdering each other and also why Bushfail
