I wrote a post yesterday that somehow didn't get through. I would doubt that it would have been deleted. From memory, it was something like this:
To talk about getting rid of Trump via the Kennedy solution makes it a political issue, and to talk about GWB would be too, but I'll mention the name to make my point. If Moronium or Gahd were standing outside a school and they observed an ISIS member with explosives strapped to his body, preparing to go into that school, would either stop him using lethal force? Let's assume they were both carrying a gun and were close enough to make a sure kill....
What would your god do? We know very well what Christians did to Muslims because the difference in those cases was different religious opinions. .
For the sake of argument, I will assume that I somehow know they are explosives (not something harmless) with empirical certainty, and that I also somehow know with the same kind of certainty what they are going to do based on previous actions. in that case, I aim for the legs and let the courts sort it out.
Those two provisos are important:
-KNOW there is a weapon/destructive device
-KNOW it is going to be used in action vs innocents based on previous actions.
Since this is very transparently a way to justify your thought process: Do you KNOW the THINGS, or are you being an Ignorant Ideologue off a "gut feeling" ? Cause again, regarding trump; there IS a prominent history to look at. A history that goes well beyond 500 character tweet-of-the-moment mis-quotes and hearsay that the bloody goldfish-memory people are trotting about.
Beyond that you've, much like a couple other people at this point, stepped away from the core of the thread.
On Christians and Muslims -> more of that generalizing and deflecting from the core topic, probably so you can avoid having to confront a reality that does not follow a flawed mental picture. I shouldn't entertain that kind of blatant misdirection, but I will point out that if you're talking about "the crusades" like so many do; the crusades were a retaliation towards generations of invasion, kidnapping/slavery, pillaging, etc from the south an east (AKA middle east.) We do know what they did; decided enough was enough and decided to remove an existential threat the only way that threat was responsive to. Look it up.
EDIT: post merge
What is your last point that would give me more insight as to the meaning?
Fwiw, I direct my anger at the Zionist apartheid regime and not at Jews. There is a difference and the Zionists loudly deny it's so.
But I doubt that the insight you suggest is going to negate the fact that you said it.
To the topic in a way I wish to expand it: Trump has ordered the withdrawal of the US from the INF treaty, on the pretense that Russia was already violating the treaty and was trying to cause America to withdraw from the treaty iin order to place the blame on Russia.
And in order to make a case for Russia against Trump's contention, I'll provide a link for your consideration:
I find it terribly ironic that the treaty violation stuff is touted about at the same time that people claim he's only in power from russian influence and has some kind of russian agenda funding his overly rich posterior. Goldfish level attention span and memory with society at large, i swear.
I'm not sure that's on trump's shoulders. Treaty stuff need two-thirds majority of the United States Senate. Enough people agree after deliberation, it's not something that can be ham-fisted around with some abuse of executive orders.
