"But perhaps the most important ingredient is the dehumanization of the victims, said David Livingstone Smith, professor of philosophy at the University of New England and author of “Less Than Human: Why We Demean, Enslave, and Exterminate Others.”

“Thinking about your enemies in subhuman categories is a way of creating a mental distance, of excluding them from the human family,” he said.“It makes murder not just permissive but obligatory. We should kill vermin or predators.”"

Good Morning, Duke
Violence concerning religion has gone on since the beginning of time, unfortunately.
If only we can just respect others beliefs and move on.
Sadly, some religions, by some groups, are misinterpreted to suit one's own agenda, imposing havoc on those who don't comply with their beliefs.

I don't always dehumanize enemies. Sometimes it is them or me ( or mine ) and I always choose me and mine. Now when it comes to skinnys or beaners they are defective, no need to polish a turd just flush it.

Comment #1, from a shrink:

"I might add that most therapists are much more comfortable doing therapy with victims. But if we take seriously the goal of preventing violence, we should devote as much energy to perpetrators as to victims."

Yep. So is Dukie telling us these extremist Muzzies need heavy duty meds or that we need to extra vigilant with extremists and do as Churchill states: learn to say the word NO?

I said the comments were interesting reading.

That's what I said. I believe there are over 267 comments attached to that article as of this moment, yet you latch on to one in particular and attempt to ascribe it as being something I would agree with.

Very Interesting tactic you have there.

Yes...... we can: Obama waives anti-terrorism provisions to arm Syrian rebels

The Obama administration waived provisions of a federal law which ban the supply of weapons and money to terrorists. The move is opening doors to supplying Syrian opposition with protection from chemical weapons.

The Arms Export Control Act (AECA) allows the US president to waive provisions in Sections 40 and 40A, which forbid providing munitions, credit and licenses to countries supporting acts of terrorism. But those prohibitions can be waived "if the President determines that the transaction is essential to the national security interests of the United States."

The Syrian opposition groups are increasingly dominated by radical Islamists, many of them foreign fighters who, the UN says, are involved in numerous crimes committed in Syria. According to estimates of defense consultancy IHS Jane's, more than a half of the forces fighting to topple President Bashar Assad government are jihadists. The US explicitly listed Al-Nusra Front, a powerful Al-Qaeda-linked part of the Syrian opposition, as a terrorist organization.

Not to mention the fact that you have completely misconstrued that comment that you are referring to in the NYT.

Yep, those comments sure are interesting:

"The fact that there is not more of this kind of grievance-based violence may be related to the fact that the West has, generally, been wealthy enough to buy off and avert a lot of the most savage kinds of conflict."

Yep. So, there ya go. The extremist Muzzies are pretty savage and yep, we have been thus far fortunate enough to figure a way to afford (not just money-wise) to keep that sheet off our shores.

"I will thank you to not decide what is inside every human heart and I especially thank you to not go seeking out a murderer to define renewal or spirit simply because he wrote a book."

I loved this quote.

"I have been in civil war and also at the bedside of many a hospice patient and I declare that not every person is capable of murder--and there is nothing exceptional about the cowardly act of closing your eyes and pulling a trigger. "

"In fact, a psychologist once wrote about the great phenomena of soldiers in their first battle, who found out that the greatest fear is not being killed, but having to kill someone else."

Yep. When one is in a situation of "fight or flee," there is nothing exceptional about either fighting (killing) or fleeing. One must, in an instant, weight the odds of survival. We're hoping to not put ourselves into that position of have to decide between flight or flee on our own shores.

"Yes, we "exceptional" white, Christian Americans are fully capable of such heinous crimes. During our far less violent days of conflict, the anti-war protests of the 1960s and early 1970s, I was arrested and jailed during a peaceful, sit-down protest next to the university in Santa Barbara (we were then expressing our dissent over a 7:00 PM curfew imposed by authorities as a result of demonstrations over the killings at Kent State)."

Yep. There ya go, here's the crux of the matter for you, Dukie. Don't think that poster doesn't exemplify where you're going? You want to kick the basic values of this country in the nads. And yet, you and I still live in a society where we don't have to worry too much (yet) about some whacked out extremists telling us we need to be a specific religion or race or else we're dead.

Bite me, Dukie. I'll be happy to bill ya for the medical expenses and get the dog warden out after the mutt.

Arming Syrian rebels was approved by the House Intelligence Committee. Did you have a point?

hmmmm
I would have thought my post and point would have been self evident.

I apologize for giving you credit for intellect you where not due.

That being said, the "house committee on intelligence" should have said no as well. NO of course is the operative word in your post that I responded to.

Obama however, waived the enforcement of the law.

Of course maybe you think arming Al-Qaeda and friends is a great idea. Obviously our POTUS seems to like the idea.
