    I fell of a pedalo too buddy

    You are correct, i am not bothered in the slightest about how triggered you are as a consequence of my post. Here's why:

    1) You knowingly entered a clearly titled thread and knew clearly what sort of things the discussion would entail

    2) Not only have you entered it, but you have fallaciously and maliciously attacked others for their views. Not somebody who's fee fee's i believe need protecting from the big bad words

    3) You fantasied about someone shooting me in the face being worth the jail time. But yes, i am the big bad nasty man

    4) My post wasn't offensive or wrong. It was spot on. You might not like the reality of that but me pointing it out doesn't mean i deserve shooting in the face
    1) I entered knowing someone would so callous as to judge refugees fleeing over water as a calculated risk and their own fault for dying? Maybe you did, I didn't.

    2) I was not the one to escalate things.

    3) After you made that comment, see 2)

    4) Yes, it was.

    We had almost nothing to do with each other before this, so none of your points have any merit in you saying that is why you aren't bothered. Moreover, fair enough if you say that to me. But anyone can read your post. Not just me. What if they get triggered, still not bothered?

    I mean you are not even anything noteworthy. The internet is full of bullies and trolls.

    If your moral compass doesn't recognize that on its own, nothing I will say will change that.

    And names? I called you a bully (or a troll depending if you are genuine or not). As you said above, that is "neither offensive nor wrong, it was spot on".

    I'm sure the "refugees" who will float in the sea or die of starvation when people turn them away would love to see your face and remember the coldness behind it even in death
    How's that work given they would never see her face

    last thing they would see would be their countrymen fighting to use their body as a flotation device given the ones they sell in Turkey are made of cardboard

    I suggest you read up on history before making such an absurd, oversimplified comment about isolationism.

    And it is our responsibility, as a leading democratic nation, to properly enforce what NATO stands for and actually help the situation instead of giving it a bash and praying things work out - which is what we are doing right now with airstrikes.
    I suggest you try to understand how a desire for peace after a catastrophic war coupled with appeasement is not the same as isolationism.

    NATO stands for the defence of its' members territory, not interference in the internal affairs of other states. The current effort is going well beyond the call of duty.

    Why don't you figure it out yourself? You pretend to be so smart, I am sure you will have no trouble...

    I wonder how many people you come across must be "poor at reading" in your eyes. Maybe it's just you, you know. Your effect on people.
    He's not pretending to be smart. He is. Aside from giving him ad hominem over ad hominem and vacuous responses, you brought nothing to prove him wrong.
    But I guess for your kin what you have to do is take out the name card and you've won the argument.

    Isolationism, peace and appeasement aren't mutually exclusive things. Sometimes the desire for peace derives from isolationism, some nations might want to stay peaceful with other powers because they don't want to get involved in foreign conflict and affairs. But whatever silly argument you try to make, British and American isolationism was a significant factor in allowing Hitler to gain confidence and momentum in taking back lost territory and claiming further territory in the inter-war years.

    But I'm probably wasting my time here anyway, you've butted into my arguments about three times over the last few weeks, and when met with reason you always conveniently don't reply.

    That is true, and probably applied to the USA before 1942. It did not, however, apply to the UK, which has never been isolationist and had interests across the globe to protect and bound itself to protect other countries by treaty.

    In any event, isolationism is not simply non-interventionism.

    Oh please stop. A fanboy?

    And what is this forums obsession with ad hominem? You can't use it whenever something doesn't suit you. Not to mention your bff was the one who started being derogatory.

    Im sure the "refugees" who will float in the sea or die at the hands of ruthless smugglers who after seeing their third world countrymen living it up in Germany, decided it was worth the risk would love to see your face and remember the stupidity behind it even in death
    I'm sure that regardless of the language barrier, the "refugees" are just as confused with this sentence as I am because it doesn't make any sense

    What i think you're trying to say is, let's keep them out because their fellow nationals are violent beasts and you worry for the safety of these refugees...which I doubt, stop the rubbish.

    Let the peoples decide, ok?

    These people were safe in refugee camps, for which the EU is going to pay €6 billion.

    Not surprised someone like you would have such selfish views.
