Rationalize away:

1: They are allies

2: We have a financial interest in the area.

yada yada
Spot on. American troops should not be deployed for any less. And there should be even more justification if actual combat is expected. "

Well, that does it! I am so triggered by that I'm contemplating ending it all by throwing myself in front of a glacier! "

jmf552 replied to the thread United Nations Is Running out of Money!.
" I think there should be an organization that does the basics of what the UN purports to do. But I don't think the UN does it well and so far beyond reform that we should pull out of it and get out of the US. It is becoming more and more of a government unto itself all the time. It is a conduit for creeping globalism and statism, things I am very much against. If the US ever ratifies the UN Arms Trade Treaty, which some future administration could do, the UN could partially control the RTKABA in this country. That should give everyone here pause. "

jmf552 replied to the thread Syria.
" I am sympathetic to the Kurds also, but the Turks have been going at it with the Kurds since at least 1978. Saddam Hussein used nerve gas on Iraqi Kurds. No president of any country, or the UN, has declared war on any country to protect the Kurds. To blame Trump for the whole thing is just following anti-Trump narrative that he is to blame for everything. And the Kurds are not the only worthy oppressed group in that area of the world. There are Syrian and Iraqi Christians being oppressed, there are the Druze, etc.

We can't police the world. This is happening in Syria, so technically it is their problem, not that they will do anything about it. To me, there has to be solid American interests in another country to warrant our military involvement, not just out sympathies and "feelings." I try to keep in mind that where we send American soldiers, we lose American soldiers. That has to be justified.

So I have to ask, if we jump in to help drag out a 40 year old conflict that will probably never be solved, what do we get out of it? "

jmf552 created the thread Will we ever see an uninfringed RTKABA.
" Since we have gotten into doing 2A questionnaires lately, here's mine.

1. Do you think we will see a completely uninfringed RTKABA in our lifetimes?

2. If you answered yes to #1, exactly how and roughly when do you think that will happen?

3. If you answered yes to #1, do you see any downsides to people owning WMD, surface to air missiles, etc. Specifically, do you see citizen ownership of those systems having any catastrophic consequences?

4. Regardless of your answer to #1, do you think we can move closer to the intent of 2A through the current government system, the legislature, the courts, etc. "

jmf552 created the thread Muslim kids sing songs with disturbing lyrics.
" The linked article shows pre-teens at the Muslim American Society (MAS) Islamic Center in Philadelphia, doing a musical play with lyrics, such as:

"The land of the Prophet Muhammad's Night Journey is calling us. Our Palestine must return to us. We will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies, and we will sacrifice our souls without hesitation. We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque. We will lead the army of Allah fulfilling His promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture."

The article also quotes a watchdog group as saying this sort of thing is not uncommon as MAS' 42 centers around the country. So if you were wondering what is coming from that bunch as these kids grown up, there it is. Meanwhile, we have kids getting arrested for carving a pop-tart in the shape of a pistol.

jmf552 created the thread Posting Serial Numbers of Firearms Online.
" [Edit: These posts were pulled from another unrelated thread, and collected up with minor edits for flow.

There is Internet lore that this may be an issue, not just for the reasons under discussion, but also for bad actors reporting a firearm stolen, a firearm where the serial number came from an online posting.]

Maybe it's just me being paranoid, but I never put pictures of my guns online with the serial #'s showing. "
