    The ironic thing about this is that it is like Machiavelli saying, (paraphrased) "Prince, if you can win the battle by only killing 5,000 of your troops, why fight it in such a manner that 40,000 of your troops die, just for the sake of martial display?" Machiavelli has gotten lambasted by history for trying to suggest such restraint to 'The Prince'. There is a bitter taste in my mouth when I type that at least this fellow is arguing for not breaking the wife's bones or causing her to bleed or disfiguring her.

    This particular manifestation of Islam is revolting. It makes me want to go over to the ME and volunteer to fight with one of the Kurdish women's troops.

    What else should you expect from a religion that never progressed beyond the Dark Ages? Where our anger should be directed, however, is at those that hold Islam should be respected. While I disagree with the primitive nonsense promulgated by religion, Islam is the only one that is out and out evil and revels in it - no matter what the so-called "moderates" claim.

      I think that the moderate muslims are stuck in a rut
      like soooooooo many other religionists -- they know
      one way to approach life, and it includes their version
      of a religion. . they can't see over the walls of the
      cell in which they're living. -- j

    Pre-conscious, Old Testament bicameral man was better behaved than that. I suspect even cave man was better behaved...at least they showed some sort of mutuality with others otherwise we would have not survived.
    Yes, they are not human, not conscious, have no conscience, no mind...this is what a barbarian is.

    "Islam, the religion of peace."
    What King Barry said to a room full of students in India at the start of such drivel..
    Old dino laughed at his TV.
    I wasn't thinking about any Muslim "War On Women" at the time.

      if these people weren't so easy to hate, I could
      save some energy. -- j

        Wow, if I could learn not to hate so much what is happening to our country, I could save buckets of energy! Good observation. Hate has a price.

          22 years ago, I burst a blood vessel in my lower stomach
          and bled out about half of my blood. . there was some
          coffee, booze, acidic fruit juice and nicotine which contributed,
          but stress definitely didn't help. . now, things are different
          and yet leaving hate behind is a daily challenge.
          it contributes to stress in a big way! -- j

          p.s. there was no physical shock which led to the bleeding.

            I used to do crossmatches to 'fill the patient back up' after this sort of thing happened'. If I was lucky, all it took was 4 units of blood; often I ended up crossmatching 8...and then the next shift took over.

            Congrads on changing your lifestyle, johnpe! If you give other people the ability to 'kill you by stress' it is the same as handing them a loaded gun and painting a target on your chest.

            Are you listening, Gulch??? Do not do this - you are pretty good guys, all told, and you should plan to stick around.

            Jan, does not do crossmatches any more

              they just gave me a lot of iron and good food, plus
              a week of hospital rest, and I built myself back up
              to the point where I could navigate life. . never had
              a transfusion. . gave up coffee then, and other things
              gradually thereafter. . the stress -- it's an "It's All
              Small Stuff" thing, for me. . I must be vigilant, though,
              to maintain the "cool" which it requires. -- j
