Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
America: A Christian country, or the Christianist?
The only force I see giving the raspberry would conceivably be the French Foreign Legion.
Don't get me started on that group of psychopaths.
Also one of the finest military forces in the world. Is it because they're psychopaths that they're so elite, or does being elite make them psychopaths?
It's because their recuiting policy encourages psychopaths to sign up. They take in pretty much anyone who got drummed out of other military organizations for whatever reason, no questions asked.
If firing on anything that moves in the desert (friend or foe) makes you elite, then I guess you can't get any better than these guys.
How about you research what you're talking about other than glancing at a cover of Soldier of Fortune and calling it good. That might have been true 60 years ago, but nowadays if you got drummed out of another nation's service, you have about no chance of getting in. The Legion is as professional as it is elite, but its also made up of tough motherfuckers who are about as hard as woodpecker lips.
Go grind your axe somewhere else.
Sure, there are some Christians I see on TV that have some pretty nutty ideas, but none that I have seen even comes CLOSE to rising to the level of these Muslim fanatics. So be very careful when bandying about this comparisons, it doesn't help your argument.
Obviously you don't remember when these fuckers were blowing up abortion clinics and killing doctors in the 90s, or the comments made immediately after 9/11. Go Youtube "Jesusland" and then come back here and tell me this. We have our own homegrown Taliban, except they're clean shaven and wear suits and are slightly more subtle than the mullahs across the sea.
