Yeah, because up until now it has all been fun and games, but now that they are targeting business leaders the gloves are coming off. /s

You mean the whole War on Terror and the boondoggles it has created was "turning the other cheek?"

Yep.

But you know what the real reason we haven't won yet... Apparently.

We just haven't killed enough people... Apparently.

I mean if we just "Wipe Them Out" then it'll be done... Apparently.

It's really that simple.

Apparently.

It is past the humor phase. But when your cool danger is your business and joking about Islamists is great fun.

Na, they'll just blow up a dirty bomb in Manhattan and Trump will just get richer, and we'll send Obama over to the caliphate as a diplomat.

I've been hearing this "dirty bomb" stuff for 15 years.

It's not that we haven't killed enough people. The problem is that we haven't killed the right people yet.

If the USA had killed Hitler and the Emperor of Japan right after it entered WWII we would have saved a lot of people's life's and money.

Think about that a little bit.

Who are the "right" people in an organization in which everyone is expendable?

Yep. Inspire. And really, they're not the only one as it relates to Islamic Fundamentalism spurred Terrorists. The Islamic State also has one, Dabiq.

Think of Maxim, or Cosmo...but instead of how to pick up chicks of 5 ways to please your man, it's how to make a bomb and 5 ways to go undetected through an airport.

Inspire for a bit was even trying to promote this idea of "open source jihad"; an idea of proliferating information on HOW one can go about terrorist attacks in broad fashions, like the magazine, to allow for individuals on their own volition to take up the jihad without being directly connected with a source like AQ

Then let that organization and its expendable members be expended, so that they can't threaten the world anymore.

That day will never come. You can't win an ideological war with military force. You can only contain it.

Those who are telling others what to do and when and where to do it.

Pretty frickin' simple.

:lol:

Not really. There's always someone else willing to step in and replace them. Defeating Nazi Germany and ending their surviving leadership via Nuremberg didn't eradicate The Nazi movement. It's still around today and it is neither efficient or effective to spend millions of dollars to kill someone today who will be replaced tomorrow. Particularly when targeting a movement in which the participants embrace imminent death as a desirable outcome.

In today's world millions of dollars is a small sum. If it just costs a few millions to kill the leader of a group which is causing problems you just keep killing every one that pops up like playing whack-a-mole.
