This won't be my best post, as it's quite late, but with regards to your post about Islam being inherently violent, I was horrified to get into an argument tonight and discover, factually, that the US-led coalition is responsible for at least 260 civilian deaths, including 70 children, last month alone, and well over a thousand civilian deaths over the course of the Syrian civil war. Perhaps 'Islamic' nations don't exactly have the monopoly on violence that it may seem. Statistically, the US military is far more dangerous to civilians of Syria than than Islamic terrorists are to civilians of the US.

What about the rebuilding and rehabilitation of Japan post WW2? You can definitely say that we needed to after we dropped two atomic bombs on them (and it's arguable that if we didn't, a ground war in japan would have cost far more lives for both sides, and would have killed a lot of civillians) , but we could have chosen not to like we did for europe post ww1 (correct me if I am wrong.) and while we did impose some strange rules on them, because of the rehabilitation right now Japan has been a functioning society since ww2 ended.

Yeah, that's the best I could come up with. American imperialism has not been for the best.

Aaaand Trump bombed Syria. Which was exactly what I had been hoping to avoid.

Good job, Trump. I had some optimism about you, and in a few short months, you've destroyed all of it.

I vehemently detest Trump and concur with Squeely that his bombing of Syria was impetuous as he neglected to factor the political implications of such an action especially with Russia being allied with Assad. This and Trump's hardline approach to China and North Korea means that he is basically treading on thin ice.

Trump's islamophobic rhetoric not only perpetuates the "us vs them" narrative but also alienates muslims which is one factor that contributes to them joining the Islamic State.

The best thing about Trump is that he's so unlikely to get elected for a second term.
