#2 Possibly Dron66046 is busy with security issues in Kashmir, Lex — Sunday apparently was a busy day, being as it was the annual fuss over two Pakistani sock puppet jihadis having been hanged.

#5 This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to strengthen the profits of the military-industrial complex.

Come on, it doesn't advance the interests of the American people. But boy, Raytheon executives are gonna get bonuses all around!

Killing Pakis backed by China doesn't advance the interests of the American people?

And if you believe that, I have an Admiral Gorshkov to sell you.

I don't see how it does. How would it help us? Pakistan has a surplus of worthless young men, we can kill all we want and they have more waiting. Didn't we learn anything from Afghanistan? Hell, body count was bullshit in Vietnam.

Guess a 12 yo echo chamber wouldn't know that.

#13 I’m all for killing every Pakistani that rears up on its hind legs shouting for jihad. Even better if India steps up to join in to help wipe out those carrying the idea that they get to rule the world merely because they are members of what they fondly believe to be the Master Religion.

Though if this coronavirus is as virulent as some are saying, in a few years the idiots of the Ummah won’t have the population to be a threat to anyone.

#14 Bottom line? The only way to stop the latest effort at totalitarian conquest — previous efforts being Nazi, etc. national socialism and Soviet, etc international socialism — is to kill believers in large enough numbers that the idea itself becomes a laughingstock. Large enough numbers has been demonstrated to be in the tens of millions of dead plus the destruction of the host economy.

It isn’t about immediately benefitting the American civilian, but putting an end to the dhimmi tax on civilized societies. Or do you think it is acceptable that we have to spend hundreds of millions of dollars keeping track of radical Muslims and their friends who may or may not one day decide to run amok killing all within reach?

#15 Awans in America, Pakis terrorizing in Britain, yet Herb sees no plus in arming and enjoining India. His agenda of isolation, demilitarization, and disarming to please Smedley Butler is a path to caopitulation. Agitprop with milk and sugar

#16 Totalitarian conquest. Wut.

So the Pakistanis are going to boil out of Pakistan until they're coming out of landing craft to storm the beaches of Florida? I'm not sure what's being prevented here.

to kill believers in large enough numbers that the idea itself becomes a laughingstock.

We've killed huge numbers of people in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, the list goes on. It's not working.

Large enough numbers has been demonstrated to be in the tens of millions of dead plus the destruction of the host economy.

Jesus fucking Christ. Hitler only killed 6 million.

#17 NASAMS will be the innermost ring of the air defence around the Delhi capital region. The middle ring will be the Russian s400 system and the Israeli Spyde systemr. The outermost ring will be he Indian BMD system.

#19  Hitler only killed 6 million.

Learn history, Mr. McCoy. The Nazis killed over 11 million in the concentration camps alone, six million of whom were labelled as Jewish. Then there were all the others starved to death in various conquered territories like Poland and the Netherlands, killed on various battlefields around the world, eradicated in localities like the Warsaw Ghetto, lined up in front of ditches and shot, etc. and so forth ad nauseum. Look at what we had to do to persuade the Germans that national socialism is so dangerously stupid that it results in the entire wealth of the nation being turned into rubble in the middle of winter, along with a significant number of the population dead — soldiers and civilians, innocent and guilty alike.
