re: What are some reasonable policies that can stop homegrown islamic terrorism? - crazy4lsu
Do something about the Salafis/Wahabis. Nearly every terrorist group other than the notable Shia ones are Salafi/Wahabis. The other schools are mostly irrelevant at this point, even though they are far more popular. I know what we will do instead though, and it will make the situation far worse. ...

[quote]Why? [/quote] Because the country is pretty evenly divided along those lines. I'd rather people be represented than one side winning. [quote]How about America needs to recognize and value objective reality and make decisions based on that? [/quote] I understand the implication he...

[quote]I believe the guidline for NATO contribution is 2% of your GDP. Germany is no where near that level. [/quote] That was only decided in 2014 at the Wales Summit I believe. NATO countries have til 2024 to meet those obligations. [link=(http://www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/official_texts_11...

re: Dutch elections: Turkish minister claims 'holy wars will soon begin in Europe' - crazy4lsu
[quote]His recent attempt to so overtly interfere with the Dutch elections should be a cautionary tale to the rest of the EU as the more actions like this that are allowed, the more brazen future actions will become. [/quote] Rutte and Erdogan used that crisis well. Erdogan is a massive dang...

[quote]Islamism is authoratarianism. [/quote] I'm referring to Islamism of the Wahabi/Salafi variety, which didn't have much of a foothold in Turkey. The openly Islamist parties in Turkey have usually been banned. What Erdogan is doing is closer to Putin than it is to Islamism. ...

re: Dutch elections: Turkish minister claims 'holy wars will soon begin in Europe' - crazy4lsu
[quote]The issue here is clearly Islamic extremism[/quote] What's going on in Turkey is regular authoritarianism (with a religious bent), not so much Islamism. The current brand of Salafism/Wahabism is pan-Arab, which by default doesn't include Turkey, for a variety of historical reasons. ...

re: Dutch elections: Turkish minister claims 'holy wars will soon begin in Europe' - crazy4lsu
If there is another one it won't work out well for them either. Personally I think that Erdogan is attempting to antagonize Europe as a whole, firstly to win the April referendum which would essentially make Erdogan the dictator in Turkey, and secondly to force the EU's hand with regards to Turki...

[quote]ISIS is their "reformation".[/quote] No it isn't. ISIS isn't coming up with anything new. It's the same offshoot of the Hanbali which is experiencing a reformation due to Salafi-Wahabism. The other schools and sects rely heavily on jurisprudence rather than theology. [quote]People don'...

re: What is trump going to do about slumping oil prices? - crazy4lsu
Not only that in the last week prices had a 9 percent fall due to glut concerns. I don't see how opening up more areas for drilling isn't going to do anything but drive the price down, which geopolitically, suits the US and it's allies just fine. ...
