When Abu Qaswara seeks out advice about his coming martyrdom, the al-Nusra leader he speaks with tells him to reflect on his intentions to ensure that he is not simply attempting to “escape from life.”

The options being: they can “escape from life” or ” they will be freedom-lovingly exited from the hell in which they have been conditioned to live by a drone”

Toward the end of the film …

Per Hollywood specifications the closure to any form of entertainment must have a happy ending

Really, the article made little sense to me. The documentary looks like propaganda. It is interesting that the men profiled are not Syrians but foreigners including from the West and converts to Islam.

But, how will we Westerners be able to consume it if it is not propaganda?

I would think that defeated, hopeless people would be recruited. Destroying cities, and peoples past, present and future, putting them under siege, leads to desperation.

If the middle east were allowed to thrive politically and economically, people would not fall prey to such perversions like seeking martyrdom by killing others. A people under siege on the other hand become more regressive and inward looking.

Islam needs to modernize and it can only do so in conditions of peace, economic prosperity and political stability.

Thank you!

There is little difference between a soldier who has been thoroughly inculcated with the defining doctrines of ones culture and the religious zealot who has been indoctrinated with the precepts of a given faith.

If at all. Thank you!

The Japanese evidently had more honor than the US, also, who obliterated two cities – 80,000 civilians – with atomic bombs.

1st) notice how no one disputes your main point

2nd) I would even say that even those 9/11 terrorists had more honor than the U.S. military invading people who can’t defend themselves on an equal basis based on lies and just killing people for the “freedom-loving” fun of it (and then put and abuse Manning in prison for letting the world at large know).

They targeted the main USGs military and political institutions responsible for genocidally messing with their countries and people instead of bombing Harlem and Hialeah “with USG approval” … as USG claims

3rd) Have you heard anything lately about the South China Sea? Why is it that Western media stopped talking about it at once? Why is it so hard to make up some b#llsh!t about WMDs when it comes to China or Russia? Don’t they actually have enough nukes?

I thought and hoped gringos would finally have a good chance to test if “God” truly gave a sh!t about them:

But then, after USG made friends with and started “aiding” (you won’t believe this), Vietnam!, regional countries don’t even dare to tickle China

imo, ww2 was ALL ABOUT RUBBER.

soon, it will be water and sunlight.

Hopefully, it there is any left!

What I said at 3.37:

This is by no means an excusing of Japanese atrocities in China, nor an appraisal of how virtuous or consistent a culture’s claim to a code of honor actually is.

And yes, the kamikaze avoided civilian casualties.

But they need to checkpoint reality in convenient ways and always someone else’s sh!t will smell worst than one’s own!

It does not, however, explain state terrorism, as practiced in the Middle East by the US and its allies Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, or by the Syrian regime of Assad.

What we and our allies do it not terrorism but freedom loving, also we have a free media, “democratic” goverments while their social order is based on Al Qur’an.

truth and peace and love,
