It's quite a lurvly morn up here. At this stage it looks like Townsville and surrounds need to get ready, but it's still not classed as more than a Low ...

Walt's been busy out side here in the past few weeks, consequently we are more than ready. The place looks really ' together ' just now, it'd be a

damn shame to wreck all his effort.

" ... If you distill your argument down to its essentials, it's basically a suggestion that people should never flee their home country due to conflict... "

 

Never is so final, and if you read what I was asking, you'd know that I was not in my post above suggesting that. Some months back I did put the notion

forward ( as I said ) , but today, given the previous responses I am asking ...

 

What say back in 1941/2 England decided to not only send the kids off but all civillians too, do you think England would have survived ?

 

A standard way to test ideas is to extend them to extreme cases.  You weren't necessarily suggesting exactly that, but at same time, the context you provided didn't promote alternative interpretations.  The additional context you've provided seems to confirm the extreme interpretation?

 

I'm not sure accurate parallels can be drawn between 1941 England, and modern day Syria.  England is an island, they never had to deal with a land invasion or foreign occupation.  I'm personally not aware of any close historical parallels to what is happening in Syria at the moment.  Maybe chrisg can chime in with his knowledge.  It's a clusterfuck between Russian backed Assad, Allied backed rebels, and ISIS entering part way through the turmoil, seizing the opportunity to grab power, land, and resources.

 

IMHO, England would have been invaded had not it's adult civillian population staid. They manned the factories that helped keep England going and supplied

with weaponry.

So this guy slaughters his second wife in front of their young children. This event happened in Melbourne Aus.

He married his second wife whilst still married to his first ( Islamic law ). How does Islamic law come before The law of the land Australia ?

It doesn't. And yet he has two wives and a 'righteous' excuse for killing one of them ... ffs

" They also agree that the only long term solution is for Muslim nations to get involved with boots on the ground. "

 

 

I'm purposefully not quoting you tasty with this comment, even though I've copied from your post on the first page . It's a comment that gets made quite often.

I made a comment somewhere not too long ago, that perhaps all the millions of refugees would have impact if they staid their ground and fought back, instead

of running with potentially fatal consequences anyway. The responses I got were that those millions running would not do well armed. Fair enough I

suppose, but why not train them as we do other countries forces, and send them back to deal with the shit ?

 

If any foreign country is just an excuse for a never ending saga, then it seems weapons need to be put into the hands of those being persecuted in their

own land ...
