Believing in Deities is a Form of Psychosis

Korea with the WLB in the White House. So that's a two-fold asinine assumption on the part of theists, that they have an afterlife to look forward to (or three-fold if they assume it's going to be pleasant) and that anyone but North Koreans should be worried about some shit going down.
They can't bomb us into oblivion but maybe they can bomb us. I have some concern for N. Korean civilians. They don't deserve to die because their leader is a fuckface.

But yeah N.Korea is a gnat compared to us. We could take them out without using Nukes if we wanted to. But using Nukes on them could screw up the environment and mess up sources of food and water for our allies.

I think theists are a little more likely to fall for the propogand "It's ok, they're the enemy, they aren't like us."

I'm aware of that, I was merely pointing out how stupid it is to think that anyone on our side should be afraid. We've got things in place to stop incoming projectiles before they get here, and tragic as it may be, retaliation would likely result in that place being annihilated. It's just too bad the people there are largely indoctrinated not to see the Dear Leader for what he truly is. Even if we killed only him, they're all primed to just continue worshiping the next asshole to come into power. If their lives are truly as miserable and devoid of hope as the picture paints it, it's almost like a mercy killing. Even if they were to be liberated, would that work? Or is that battered spouse mentality too deeply ingrained to ever be excised?
Religions were invented to impress and dupe illiterate, superstitious stone-age peasants. So in this modern, enlightened age of information, what's your excuse? Or are you saying with all your advantages, you were still tricked as easily as those early humans?

My guess would be the younger they are the better the likelihood they can get out of it.
But I don't think we should invade either.
In general, I think military action should be defensive.

Sorry if I'm barely coherent compared to usual. I haven't had much sleep.

I don't think I've conversed much with you so I wouldn't know any difference one way or the other.

One would hope the younger ones would see through it like they did in Iran, but aren't the younger ones in the throes of indoctrination?

You have a point. I don't know, but I wish we didn't have unstable Trump with no experience or training in diplomacy or anything like it at the head of things to screw things up.

Um life has value. Just because I don't believe in an afterlife doesn't mean I'm in any hurry to become nothing. Besides that war  probably wouldn't cause  immediate death for some people. There could be prolonged suffering that would last generations.

Tyrants have to be faced down, and Don's the man to do it..Smile
Kim has threatened to nuke the US homeland, so if Hillary was in charge it'd probably go something like this-
BOOM!

This is the horrible cunt.

I'm oh-so-impressed.  (If it's not absolutely crystal clear, that was sarcasm.  I wish I knew a way to make that epic sarcasm, but that's all I had right at the moment. Eeeew   )
A British Trump supporter.  I bet he was so disappointed that he couldn't join the Charlottesville crowd.  
This pig is really full of himself, isn't he?  The YouTube description might actually warrant a chuckle if it wasn't so desperately pathetic.  Poor guy.
