I agree that the tragedies which were purported in 9-11's name were much worse than the tragedy of 9-11.
It was a terrible day...we were actually watching as the 2nd plane hit, thinking until then that the first was an accident...but I think the Pearl Harbor example used earlier was apt. Like PH, it was more significant because it happened to Amercans on America than for itself, (and the fact that it was essentially televised).
I'll never forget seeing it, or how scared and horrified I felt, but if all the deaths that came about in 9-11's name since were televised, I'm sure I'd feel even worse. And I agree with the linked blog; I fully expect to see Freedom Fries and 'let's turn the Middle East into a parking lot' again the next time it happens.
Saying refugees are trying to 'get to' somewhere doesn't imply that Isis is/is not going to 'get them'. Get to just means intended destination, like I'm going to try and get to split or Belgrade in a few days.
Right, again showing that leaving Isis >>>> going anywhere for reasons other than non-Isis. Parsing their motives beyond that is, if you accept the fact that they ARE running for their lives, kinda absurd.
Wrong, I said that getting away from Isis was the primary motivation for the vast majority of refugees, and that for some of them a bordering country doesn't feel safe enough. I don't think I ever used the words "get them", either.
But it's a waypoint country people are literally dying to get into, and which is over flooded, and which is where many are staying/having to stay. Why aren't the refugeeyupies just waiting out the storm when better options will be available, or booking flights to Berlin? Could it be because 'GTFO of IS-land' is far and away their top priority?
Yeah, I'm sure the brochures go over big in the refugee camps, unless being used as temporary housing material.
