I pretty sure we all know who is an idiot and who isn't......

If being pro "my country of origin" makes my IQ level suspect, then call me stupid.

All countries have good and bad elements in their populations and in their governments foreign policy, America's are just more amplified due to our media saturation and our over reliance on military force. If you would like to lay the blame of all that is evil in this world at our doorstep then feel free to do so. It is that exact freedom to say and do what you believe to be true that makes America what it is good and bad.

Dont mixup government(s) with people, most obviously in dictatorships but also, especially, in some modern democracies, driven by media and capital. Similar applies to religion. These are institutions directed by the privileged few; their directives are not necessary aligned with or representative of their base.

These are complex times and is not reasonable to expect that everyone on either side has full access to unbiased information. Belief/Faith is a powerful feeling that centralizes the power of decision from the masses in the respective leaders. Many are taking advantage of this.

In any case, there is no excuse for making such insensible, hatred-filled remarks about thousands of people dying.

Fact is that civilians die 90% of the time
Stronghold is an example, if you are superior and raze me from my County I try to spawn in your land and kill all while you are off and can't react, buy obviously raze carded is not easy and they can take new villages easy, so you start to cap farmer

That example makes no sense and finds little resemblance with RL.

Fear/uncertainty is the main driver of belief/faith. If you target the base you will antagonize it and strengthen the belief towards their leadership. In essence you will make more powerful the exact group of people responsible for whatever you are reacting to.

F.ex., modern day terrorism, is serving the interests of the military industry complex through this mechanism and by providing apparent justification for government-approved military action.

Some kids these days think is cool and alternative to understand or even empathize with terrorism and its "mission". Because now they have access to alternative sources of information through the internet etc. Free or alternative doesn't mean unbiased or trustworthy.

There is absolutely no empathy to be found in the mass killing of innocent people through suicide bombing. This is actually one of the most anti-humanity actions I can think of. Whatever institution is giving these directives cannot be right.

I am sorry, but sometimes it feels like the obvious needs to be stated (and remembered).

This scares me that I'm quoting Xunzi - I think he/she said that firefly has effectively created a game to promote nationalism. (If I'm wrong correct me but I believe someone recently pointed that out and its true).

More they found a use for the latent nationalism as a way to open wallets and promote capitalism.

They're fixing the heathens one dirty peso/ruble/rupee at a time

Viva La Firefly! Changing the world without firing a shot :>
