Mr Duterte is quick to denounce the US for treating the Philippines like a junior partner, but still comes calling with cap in hand for help.
Unlike past leaders of the Philippines, though, I think he understands that if the Philippines wants to be treated like a grown up, it has to get its house in order. Implement family planning, prioritize education, and establish rule of law. Not easy tasks, but necessary.
It appears the world will roll over for China in the South China Sea, the way they did in Tibet. So it will be up to the Philippines to look after its own interests, perhaps by forming alliances with other countries in the region. comment by usgoosht on Philippines' Duterte derides U.S. for past inaction in South China Sea Mar 24, 2017 04:07 AM [GMT]
As long as those scriptures remain as they are, incidents like this will continue to occur, as they have throughout the history of the cult of Islam.
They are stuck in a catch-22. They know how barbaric and backward the cult of Islam doctrines are. But they can't change them, because to change them is to be subject to charges of blasphemy and apostasy.
The West, with its individual rights, and the cult of Islam are fundamentally incompatible. If we can't civilize Muslims before they overwhelm our societies with their intolerant cant, we are doomed. comment by usgoosht on UK Muslim leaders condemn 'cowardly' London attack Mar 24, 2017 03:58 AM [GMT]
The cult is just naturally intolerant; it's evident to anyone who reads its scriptures. And their 'perfect' man, Mohammed, was violently intolerant; he had people murdered just for criticizing him. comment by usgoosht on Ethnic Chinese still grapple with discrimination despite generations in Indonesia Mar 18, 2017 4:49 PM [GMT]
Oh, but these are just people who are taking the cult scriptures out of context, aren't they? Ha ha ha
It is really sad, weeping sad, that around one and a half billion people are subject to this destructive, dysfunctional cult. comment by usgoosht on Blasphemy charges create climate of fear for Pakistani media Mar 18, 2017 4:44 PM [GMT]
