The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.

10 maps to explain why Russia can't make nice.

Comment by Shane on January 16, 2016 at 11:04pm
I have no knowledge of that region specifically, but al Qaeda franchised out and gave exclusive rights to groups in specific regions. It could be a local al Qaeda affiliated group acting up without global directive.

Soft target.  It's like the attack on the Mali hotel.  In Burkina Faso, they went for a hotel frequented by Westerners (so said the article I read), and unlikely to be effectively defended.  That's my guess.

Comment by Liam Strain on January 16, 2016 at 12:33am

They seem to be targeting muslim majority areas which have been otherwise relatively peaceful (from a religious unrest standpoint). Doesn't make sense to me, but that's how I'm reading the Jakarta Al Qaeda attacks too. 

Comment by Steve Dallas on January 16, 2016 at 12:24am

Can anyone tell me why Al Queada would target landlocked poor as hell former French Burkina Faso? Or is it just that they are friendly to us?(I have personal reasons to follow this country)

Comment by Shane on January 13, 2016 at 8:26pm

They always look like that.  Military bearing and all.

Enjoy some libertarian comedy from Doug Stanhope.

Yeah, he says things.

Comment by Pale Horse on January 8, 2016 at 11:12pm

I ask because he said he regrets not running. Not sure if it was just a remark or if it's a weird hint.
