Just More Things... - June 20th 2016, 03:21 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

(I didn't really want to title the post.)

So, ISIS has a list of Canadian names and most are women on their "kill list". I do know they have other names on this "list" around the world, but Canada?

Why are they targeting Canadians?

I know they have others on the list who are famous that aren't Canadian.

I don't know, it's like why would they be targeting 151 Canadians?

I think that ISIS is trying to create shock value. IMO they can't do anything major to the US/Canada. By making stuff like this, they create shock value and appear scarier than they are.
I also feel that they have reached a stage where they are always trying to look bigger than they are.

Because they're peaceful, smart, and happy, I would assume. Everything they despise. It's also a way to leverage America's allies into pushing America to deploy ground troops. Isis thinks there is supposed to be some "Divine battle against the armies of Rome" in Syria that they are guaranteed to win, which is why they want America to send in ground troops to Iraq and Syria. I'm fairly certain that's a spark for the apocalypse or something like that.
I'm surprised they haven't gone after Switzerland, that would be the ultimate shock value, attacking the most neutral of neutral countries.

Or declare on the Atlantians, and put Aquaman on their kill list.

"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.
