No. Of course not. Religious madness will not stop as long as religion exists.
The fortunate part of suicide missions is that there is a very small percentage of repeat offenders.
Well, when all you have to convince people that they should work for you is promises of eternal bliss after death without any kind of proof, you can't really expect nobel prize material to flock to you...
They're a bit like religion. Yes, there are some good aspects, but in total, it's more of a hassle than the benefits warrant.
If you want to wage war, do it. Go grab a gun and go to war. But do it yourself. If the assholes who want a war would have to fight it, they'd not only be far shorter, there would also be far fewer of them.
And why about the rich ones?
Well, I don't know about you, but to me not wanting to go to war to die senselessly to protect the interest of a few and participate in the dick-measuring contest between US and USSR sounds like a really sane reason to get out of it.
Dude, think again. Kissinger has one. Obama has one. The EU has one. Giving one to Assange, Manning and Snowden sends the wrong signal, they're not crooks.

How does one kid go from getting a bad grade to breaking and entering... Probably by following the train of thought that anything is ok as long as you bring home good grades.
That's what good parenting is about, right? Making sure your kids knows that his grades mean everything.
Someone fucking up on a test, then having the bright idea of "hacking" a computer (when obviously having no skill whatsoever to do so), then lighting the computer on fire without either considering that this will not accomplish anything nor having the sense to know that this fire might not be limited to the computer but may spread...
If that are the actions of a rational adult,
Funny enough, if he actually HAD screwed like an adult, he'd probably be in trouble with the law now, too...
He issued an HCF instruction.
Shame I didn't have mod points- not just for the joke itself, but because- in a discussion thread that could otherwise have been mistaken for one on Fark or whatever- it says something that this is by far the most reminiscent of the traditional Slashdot audience and style.
In other words, your government is busy protecting the interests of your own country and considers the concerns that only benefit a foreign nation secondary?
Any chance that we could borrow them for a while? I wonder what it's like to have a government like that.
