Your profile reflects your reputation, it will build itself as you create new debates, write arguments and form new relationships.
I have no idea what you are getting at here, or what it has to do with "the good book", Con. Do you care to enlighten me?
What does the "good book" say about your hideous addiction to child pornography, Herr Bronto?
Oh, that's right. It encourages keeping children as sex slaves.
But that's OK. It's in the first half of the Bible. Every Christian knows only the last half is true.
I hope they hang you, you dirty little sicko.
Today we found out once again that our failure to control illegal immigration and our inability to manage the current caseload of people applying for immigration benefits poses a lethal risk to the nation.
Homelessness, inequality and food insecurity pose a lethal risk to the nation so why don't you build a wall around those things you worthless little shill? America has managed to last a good few hundred years without having a wall on its southern border so your reporting of a fictional crisis only exposes you as a political shill who should be permanently ignored. Indeed, in very familiar fashion, you are using multiple accounts to write a long succession of biased comments because you want to create the false impression that your insane opinions are popular. It's pathetic, dishonest, and proves that you are a thorough piece of shit. This is the exact same way you murderous little bastards pushed the war in Iraq onto us. You created a fictional crisis.
Which isn't provable and wouldn't be a crime if it were
Ahahaha! So let me get this straight you idiotic fascistic retard. If I ask a hitman to kill somebody on my behalf, and he goes ahead and does it, it "wouldn't be a crime"?
Conspiracy to commit crime is a crime. Get out you deranged, corrupt, intellectually retarded imbecile.
Jamal Khashoggi was a journalist, not a jihadist
This has been a common talking point among some of President Donald Trump's supporters, which is to suggest that Khashoggi's killing matters less if he was aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood or once knew Osama bin Laden. Trump and some of his backers have been at pains to blunt the condemnation that has been hurled worldwide at the Saudi regime, and in particular, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, in whom the US administration has invested much political capital.
More than a decade ago, long before any of this was a matter of controversy, I interviewed Khashoggi at length in London for a book I was writing, "The Osama bin Laden I Know." On June 13, 2005, I asked Khashoggi a number of questions about the nature of his relationship with bin Laden, his connection to the Muslim Brotherhood, and the proper role of religion in politics.
Khashoggi discussed his pioneering reporting for Arab News about bin Laden, his understanding of the formation of al Qaeda, and the last time he met with bin Laden. Khashoggi also discussed his feelings about the 9/11 attacks and his hopes and fears for the future of Saudi Arabia.
What follows are excerpts from that interview. This interview shows that Khashoggi wasn't some kind of secret jihadist, but a journalist simply doing his job who evolved from an Islamist in his twenties to a more liberal position by the time he was in his forties.
Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi criticised the regime – and paid with his life
The humble man I knew, who disappeared from the consulate in Istanbul, saw it as his duty to stand up for ordinary Saudis
Jamal Khashoggi is not the first Saudi exile to be killed. No one today remembers Nassir al-Sa’id, who disappeared in Beirut in 1979 and has not been seen since.
Prince Sultan bin Turki was kidnapped in Geneva in 2003. Prince Turki bin Bandar al-Saud, who applied for asylum in France, disappeared in 2015. Maj Gen Ali al-Qahtani, an officer in the Saudi National Guard who died while in custody, showed signs of abuse: his neck appeared twisted and his body was badly swollen. There are many, many others.
Thousands languish in jail. Human rights activists branded as terrorists are on death row on charges that Human Rights Watch says “do not resemble recognisable crimes”. I know of one business leader who was strung upside down and tortured. Nothing has been heard of him since. In Saudi Arabia, you are one social media post away from death.
A Saudi plane dropped a US-made bomb on a school bus in Yemen killing 40 boys and 11 adults on a school trip. Death is delivered by remote control, but no western ally or arms supplier demands an explanation. No contracts are lost. No stock market will decline the mouth-watering prospect of the largest initial public offering in history. What difference does one more dead Saudi make?
Banned for selection bias, accusing victims of terrorism of being terrorists, murder apologism, attacking a dead man with claims he can't defend and for systematically using puppet accounts to circumvent a ban so you can continue to post offensive fascist bullshit in my debate.
Americans only ever killed those who needed killing.
Documented civilian deaths from violence: 182,522 – 204,885
Your feeble attempt at trying to pluck the the heart strings by referring to hundreds of thousands of children is embarrassingly transparent.
Your refusal to acknowledge the hundreds of thousands of innocent victims of guns betrays you as a narcissistic psychopath.
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
