They also claim you have a right to free speech. Do we? Hillary says we don't. (See her response on limiting free speech when it comes to insulting Islam) And many college students and faculty are doing their best to limit speech that they don't agree with.

Maybe the Republicans are correct about owning guns. (the right to self-defense was not delegated away)

Muslims are a race? There aren't white people in Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan?

The problem is two-fold. Fascist fanatics who will kill others who don't agree with them and simping fools who think that if they're nice and quiet and respectful and kind - then they will be met with the same kindness.

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed;
if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly;
you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival.
There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

Civilians - or not the primary target(s). Are bodyguards and affiliated soldiers part of the 96? I don't know. I'm not saying they are or not. I just would like more information.

For you to say 96 out of 100 then you obviously know the breakdown.

Please share it with us. I would like to know.

True but the OP was talking about European immigrants displacing the Native American population and that was what I was referring to. Britain's actions in India was one of conquest; in North America conquest and colonization of an "unused" space.

That is not what's occurring now. Unless you are insinuating that immigrants are a hostile force attempting to conquer or colonize the countries they are entering. (By the way - that is NOT my viewpoint. My parents were immigrants. My wife is an immigrant. Most of my friends are immigrants or children of immigrants.)

You're conflating issues here and you know that. Empires expanded and contracted; wars of conquest were normal (good or bad). Agricultural people always saw uncultivated lands as unclaimed lands. This was true in China, Mesopotamia. Rome and the Americas.

We now have a DIFFERENT situation and your conflating them and coming up with a snarky is sign of your not willing to deal with the problems at hand. We have existing countries, with borders, with laws and in which the state compels it's citizens to act in a certain way. Now - what you're saying is that government can pass zoning laws to regulate density but they cannot control who comes into the country? The illogic of your position should be clear.

Now please, by pass the snarky comments, and confront the issue.

If that was your point then I agree with you. Not that I'm a neo-Nazi fucktard but that restricting access for these reasons is pathetic.

However people don't have a right to go to another country - against the wishes of those who live there - and impose their way on life on the people there. I'm an atheist. How do you think the Saudi's or Iranians would think if I went there and demanded that they respect my wishes and my way of life? People that immigrate to another country should respect the culture of that place.
