    It's never even the borderline **** that they defend (like landmines, waterboarding), but full on heinous ****:

    Of course this is no defense of the terrorist groups over in the middle east, but by American standards, who's really more barbaric here? ****ing hell. These same people like to shout about how backwards everyone in the middle east supposedly is...


    Any right wingers here who also believe the Geneva convention should only apply to the "other" and not the west who care to justify that belief?

    It all comes down to the "I'm alright jack, sod the rest" mentality. The right-wing doesn't care if others are hurt by their actions or the actions of their elected representatives however as soon as the right-wing suffers a unfortunate tragedy then they go all out crybaby mode and scream at people if they don't hear what they want to hear.

    A great example is when Lee Rigby got murdered by the Islamic terrorists. The right-wing went nuts and when people tried to explain to them that terrorism will only get worse due to our armed forces invading muslim nations the right-wing go on some holy than thou offensive.

    Best to just treat them like screaming whining children who are trapped in their own narcissist hell. You can try and explain things to them but be prepared for a huge pseudo battle & numerous insults about yourself being anti-British.

    I believe in making objective rather than emotional decisions and so i generally support the armed forces doing whatever is required to achieve their objectives.

    The rules of a just war only generally act to constrain us. We are superior to those with whom we wage war in the Middle East, if we have the ability to crush them then we should regardless of whether a body which allows North Korea to have a voice says that it's a war crime.

    We have the ability to abandon the poor in this country so why don't all those who are wealthy do so?

    No. A few hundred Daily Mail readers have the opinion that the USA was doing nothing different to what the enemy was doing. Hardly "all right wingers defending war-crimes".
    As I'm sure you read, it makes it clear that UK personnel were not involved thank goodness. The idea that phyiscal torture is used is abhorrent. I believe the UK/NATO should follow the Geneva Convention but why don't you write a strongly worded letter to Da'esh requesting they do too?

    Thing is we have no idea what our Western Militarys really do, only what we're told and what we choose to believe.

    Also, can we stop giving the Daily Mail's website extra viewing figures? Thanks. :yy:

    I can't help but think that asking someone politely what they know is not the most effective way of finding out.

    You're wrong.

    I would consider myself relatively right-wing however to say I, or the right, defends war crimes is simply wrong.

    The Lee Rigby incident says more about the failure of proper social integration than it does Islam or Middle Eastern people. The failure of community cohesion perhaps is a by-product of multiculturalism, however I for one understand that interventionism and racial discrimination has been the leading cause for radical Islam.

    The problem generally isn't with the right (or left), but instead those who lie at the radical end of the spectrum. The extreme right want us to be isolated from the rest of the world and are first to berate those who say wrong about Britain. However the extreme left are just as bad. Mass immigration, economic illiteracy and senseless social policies will not work for the better, but instead fuels the radical right.

    The problem with the left is you seem to pardon so much under the blanket of political correctness you've developed a state of innate naivety. Believe it or not the main reason we don't have proper dialogue with the Middle East, and other Asian/ African countries for that matter, is because we're victim to our own exceptionalism.

    Really? I think your find that a lot of Socialists don't agree with open borders with the EU. We consider it to benefit the class of capital more than ordinary workers.

    We recognize that multiculturalism has its flaws but its not as if multiculturalism has failed. The truth is that certain cultures are not compatible with multiculturalism. Fascism sure isn't compatible and this can be rooted in the extreme right or in religions such as Islam or even Christianity for that case. Northern Ireland troubles anyone?

    If you read your words your realize that you have actually proven yourself to be a bigot by stating:

    And I think its worth pointing out to people you are in the right-wing.

    It looks like you have proven by your own admission that the right wing posses a "I'm alright jack, sod the rest mentality".

    You need to make sure that when you generalize a group that those within the group have no rabbits to pull out their hats. Looks like your the naive one for not reading the vile which you type. I guess it all just comes out of your sub-conscious mind right?

    You've really told us lefties here. Well no you've just shown us that you have the same kind of mentality as a Daily Mail reader.

    Yeah, in much the same way as you used to be a day trader. Try not to lie too much, I2BP -- you're abnormally bad at it.

    No its genuine. I was a BNP member because I had a romanticism about being a Nazi and doing all that white power stuff. As a Psychopath I found it really empowering.

    That hasn't really changed, given your views about people from other countries.
