The CIA has for a long time made deals with Hezbollah to reduce the terrorist attacks they otherwise would have done to USA. This is called diplomacy, you need to learn how negotiation works and stop thinking in absolutes.Disclaimer: I copy myself as I first wrote this on CD http://www.createdebate.com/debate/show/Obama_protected_Hezbollah_drug_ring_from_law_enforcement
@CYDdharta The amount of peace that resulted from it is something you will never know as you can never measure how much didn't happen.
of culture is the flow of good ideas, and/or philosophical persuasion, to
provide greater access to the currents of social harmony via our “unalienable Rights,” a version of the constructal law. Because the evolution of
technology, the globe is becoming an effective local neighborhood; and
therefore, the “melting pot” of culture is inevitable in units of generational
time; hence, cultural globalism.
who feel “violence” will solve their crusade against cultural globalism will
fail, because it goes against a physical law in nature. Relative to their
crusade, violence will not solve their plight, only speed up their extinction.
@CYDdharta Do you know 9/11? That was babyish compared to Hezbollah's capabilities.Al Qaeda was hated even by their own nation and same is with ISIS but Hezbollah has links to Pakistani Intelligence, Iranian government to the highest General in the Army and Syrian backing financially (although that's dwindling due to the war) even Taliban fears and respects them as do ISIL.The only extremist group not to bow down to Hezbollah when they put their foot down is Hamas and since Hamas stands against Israel and Hezbollah put Hamas in their place, USA enjoys working with them. They are the biggest and baddest extremist Islamic group because they are lowkey legal in countries that are not even relevant to where they are based (Lebanon). So, just by allying Hezbollah and letting them get away with a few dirty deeds, USA keeps them passive and tames the other groups who would otherwise be much more capable of hurting USA's fight in Syria as well as their homeland.Do note that even though Hezbollah is based in Lebanon they actually represent the interests of other nations (Iran, Syria and Pakistan) much more.
humans) are part of nature, therefore, life is a way for nature to see and experience
itself. A civil society is also part of nature where “rape, bullying” and other
uncivil events going against the “Golden Rule” are not part
of any “norm” in the evolution of a civil society.
I do agree, in
an uncivil society rape, bullying and other uncivil events are the norm; and
therefore, also part of nature.
history demonstrates societies strive to be civil, where uncivil societies follow
a path towards extinction.
@Mike if you're going to use the scapegoat argument that being civil and fighting what's natural is itself natural then you also have to see all political systems as natural by your own definition.
