Why not? Isn’t questioning policy “propaganda”?

For those who doubt that high officials in the USA are not completely above the law, just think about what was just done (a Government killing) and the “due process” followed (we don’t like him) and just how many of the people who did this premeditated, illegal killing will ever face a jury with a competent prosecutor. We have crossed a line.

Why not save money spent on courts and trials? Are they as much a sham as our “Constitution”?

Give us back our Liberty. Give us back our honest, open, and fair elections. And gut the military / intelligence offensive capability. Our threats are almost entirely “domestic” rather than foreign, and many of them are paid with FICA tax money.

Letting them hid behind boarders is a mistake that was made years ago in Cambodia.
Politicians are not generals, unfortunately.

We had a time when the world was ruled by religion…it was called “the dark ages”….

All….I said “ALL” religions were born in a “time” and a “place”…they had historical significance for their time.

Most of you don’t want to hear it, but those who could read and write were few (kinda like today), and a few “radicals” who wanted to protest oppression of the time and communicate that to the few that could read, had to write in “code”, so to speak.

Most of the stories of all the holy books have one thing in common. They draw a black and white distinction between “right” and “wrong”…from their oppressed perspective of the historical time.

The only way to get people to listen (just like these days) is with sensationalism…and what better sensation to “motivate” than a deity?????

“He is watching…all seeing…watching you”.

If we were all “adult” enough to simply follow our conscience and not want to control others or negatively “affect” others, then we simply would not need a “shepard”…would we.

Instead, it should highlight, defend and promote the ideals that Americans and Egyptians share: freedom of speech, freedom of religion and justice for women. Culturally conservative Muslims should not be confused with terrorists.”

This is satire, right?

Sharia is inherently biased against women, non-Muslims, homosexuals, etc. to whom it denies equal rights and in many lands, openly persecutes. Freedom of speech? Try criticizing Mohammed in Iran. Freedom of religion? Try practicing Christianity in Saudi Arabia.

93,000 Copts have fled Egypt since March fearing further discrimination and violence at the hands of those “post-Islamists”.

There is your “Arab Autumn”, Mr. Rohde.

It is only considered so when viewed through the filter of religious zealotry.

Even Jesus is said to have flipped over the tables of the money changers. Christians long ago turned their backs on the path of their very own prophet in favour of ‘economic wealth’.

If the muslims trade their beliefs for silver coins as the ‘west’ has then yes they can crawl forward with, er, ‘democracy’. However, if the Laws of God are to be followed there can be no ‘western’ type democracy. Muslims now have a choice…follow the beliefs of their prophet OR join the decadence of the ‘western democratic’ world. The choice is theirs.

I agree that social networks are American born. But is the message of freedom only generated from there, if even primarily? I wonder.
Another thing is that unfortunately, America (The US), does not bring only freedom in their package, they also bring addictions and abuse: Alcoholism, homosexuality, abortion, freedom of sex (i.e. prostitution) and free market and free enterprise.
I mean from the novice’s point of view, yes, the US looks like it has a great deal of achievement, but from the inside, divisions exist to know whether or not the way America has moved the last century is really and morally the right thing for humanity.
And I am not sure about that.
Unless I come from another planet, lost of people have already noticed that “White men” (it means Western, Occidental, nothing to do with the colour of the skin) have already damaged the world by physically, morally, spiritually, economically and politically abusing those countries and their people who trusted them. Those came, saw and conquered… and left the poor country even poorer, with less faith, with no religion but with hatred and fear.
