Hint: When you try to sum up a civil war being supported by parties ranging from the US to Iran, Israel to Russia, from France to Turkey, in a couple of paragraphs, you will undoubtedly be wrong. And you are wrong. You've missed out so many details (and confused a few terms) that it rendered your post next to useless.

You should probably fix your own ignorance before complaining about others'. Just sayin'.

If you think that sums up the complexities of the area and the actors involved you have absolutely nothing of value to give to this discussion. You not only clearly don't understand why there is conflict in the region, you don't understand why external help might not always be welcome. It's incredible you are so secure in your lacking knowledge that you thought it delightfully pertinent to share just how little you know with the rest of us. Thanks for that, I guess.

I wouldn't put it past you to conjure up fantasies like this. You seem predisposed to casting a superficial glance over a subject and then turning any analysis over to your prejudices to do the hard work. You've made that patently clear with your smearing of over 1.6 billion people because of the actions of a tiny portion thereof.

Rational people use evidence, not guesswork, in order to learn about and understand the world.

It's simple misdirection - people are asking, "is Yahoo being a dick?" and Yahoo is answering, "it's perfectly legal." Which has nothing to do with the question but many people will fall for it because they [somehow, still, inexplicably, despite all evidence to the contrary] still equate legality with ethics.

n.b. It may be the users who are being the dicks, wanting something for nothing (#include malvertising.h), but that's not the question here.

And again you use your arbitrary definitions and time frames to demonstrate your arguments like a scared child trying to explain why it's not their fault they stole a cake. You are a pathetic excuse for a sentient being - you have handed over your critical thinking to others, and you chose those others poorly. Now their inane ideas are reflecting on you, and you look like a simpering fool dribbling out obvious nonsense because to do otherwise would break what's left of your frail, dusty, lazy heart.

And 620,000 died in the US civil war, so I guess Christians are a bunch of vicious twats. See how your ridiculous "logic" works? You've obviously made up your mind and are searching for evidence to bolster it. You can't find any, so you stoop to simple numbers without context, as that's the best weapon you've got. You're like an intellectual ISIS - all bluster, no sense, and destined for the same future - despised obscurity.
