BLOG: Terror threat?

You can't beat terrorism. Whilst some people disagree, I believe this to be a fact. Sure you can kill terrorists but this invariably creates more terrorists. Say you are in your country with your family, just an ordinary family with a wife and 2 sons. You go out to protect your family and your country from the threat of attack by other countries or worse, you try and protect what you believe in, your religion.

It is just you. You get shot. Straight away that creates a feeling in the two sons that they want to fight for your cause. And instead of 1 terrorist, you know have 2. After killing 1. And this doesn't include brothers, fathers, uncles, friends, sisters, mothers, daughters etc that may also take up the cause. It is a pyramid scheme in reverse and it is only ever going to end up with more and more bloodshed.

What makes a terrorist anyway? One of the things that they have to hold onto, is they have an absolute belief they are right. It isn't an option that they could be wrong and they are willing to die for what they believe is right. They believe if they do die in this fight, then more glory awaits them. They don't fear death, they embrace it.

It is a fight we non-terrorists have to win. We have to take the fight to them and we have to win. But we can't. It is a never ending circle and has caused wars and fights between man since man has been on this earth. An absolute belief in their thinking that they are right. They can't progress as a society until they realise they may well be wrong and there is a different way to do things. By wanting to wipe out terrorists, are we right? Or could there be a chance we are wrong too? Plenty of activists out there believe we are wrong.

I don't want to cheapen the loss of life by comparing it to a card game. But next time you berate a fish for being wrong, have a think about if it is you that is wrong. When you can challenge your own beliefs in ANYTHING in this world, then you can grow as a person and get better at what you are challenging. You may well decide you are indeed right or you may decide that you need to alter your belief but this can only come from you.

If not you, who? If not now, when?

If we apply the "That is poker" mentality and turn around the bad beat from the fish and end up taking all his chips the "right" way, everybody wins. I get his chips, as should be the case, he gets a lesson to help him improve his poker. The important and critical difference is that we continue to play or engage if you will, on a fair even footing, neither of us are isolated and one of us appears to have no cards, while the other appears to have all the cards. We must engage Muslims around the world, at church, government and all levels, we must understand that they are just people too, with the same dreams for their families and children, ISIS are an element that even 90% of moderate Muslims abhor, lets not tar them all with the same brush and create more issue.
Nice post Ice.
Good luck all

What makes terrorist ? Short answer: Koran. Make islam forbidden religion and western civilzation will be ok. The problem with muslims is they don't assimilate with residents of country they are coming to. Read some Koran or history of prophet mohammed, watch their ritual slaughter halal and you realize it is improper religion for 21st century.

For me there is no such notion as terrorism. It is just a way of a smaller entity (country, religious group, individual) to wage war against a bigger stronger entity. It is simple as that...
Some would say, that terrorism is aimed at peaceful people but we are aware that any military operation causes even more casualties among civilians. And for me, a family killed in an authorized drone attack is an equal tragedy as a family killed by a bomb in a mall.
It is just war. And any war is terrorism or non-terrorism. Just pick your term.

I am pretty sure terrorism isn't just the Koran or Islamic

We in the uk have terrorists that are white british Christians. I think they would be offended to be called Muslim.

Ludicrous comment - The are many millions of Muslims in the world and a very small amount are "terrorists"... in the same way there are many millions of Christians, some of which are murderers, rapists and child abusers. Wrong doing isn't confined to particular races or religions - it's a human trait - an evil human trait, but a human trait none-the-less.

Read your history - see the atrocities committed in the name of religion - all religions - over the years, then rethink your position.
 demodawggy10/28/2014 2:45:38 PM GMT

Holding all Muslims responsible for the actions of a relatively minute segment of their community,...would be like holding all of Christianity responsible for the likes of the Ku Klux Klan, White Supremacy groups,...and for that matter,...even Hitler's Germany... Confused

...on a lighter note,...personally,...I find there's absolutely NOTHING more terrorizing than playing in BankrollMob freerolls on PokerStars...!!! Tongue

Hey mate ,hope you doing fine, nice analogy between cards and the terrorists parts, i had most fun reading it, especially the terror part, yeah you right terror sucks and it makes people lose life for nothing whether you on the other side or not, because both will always get casualties and the families is them who pay for the war and so on. On another note have fun at the tables and good luck with poker in general and all the things that come with it!

There is a saying that most people have heard of which is “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter,”in that respect we have people like Nelson Mandela,Che Guevara,Gerry Adams but if we compare modern 21st century terrorism we seem to only have brutality,criminality and indiscriminate murder disguised as "a religious cause".

If we want to apply this to poker how about this quote;......."The purpose of 3 betting lies not just in the violent act itself. It is in producing terror. It sets out to inflame, to divide, to produce consequences which is then used to justify further terror."
Quote borrowed from the multi-millionaire Socialist Mr. Tony Blair Smile

Wasn't Nelson Mandela a terrorist before he became famous for being a freedom fighter?

That is the point I guess. It all depends on whose 'side' you are on
 klash2310/28/2014 7:33:48 PM GMT
Depends who you believe or who you supported at that time I suppose.I think he was accused of being the head of MK the "terrorist wing" of the ANC which apparently committed some horrible crimes.The same applies to Gerry Adams as well but ultimately it was down to his leadership that led to most of violence in Northern Ireland stopping.
The one thing that puzzles me is why do they always attack civilians and soldiers or police when we all know if the terrorists only killed politicians and did it well they would probably get results a damn sight quicker.Or be destroyed quicker. Smile

I really agree with a lot of what you are saying and kudos to you for saying so. I never thought of comparing terrorism with poker but i can see the point you are making
 IceQueenAce10/30/2014 7:57:11 AM GMT

 IceQueenAce10/30/2014 8:56:08 AM GMT
you sir, are a racist dick
 3pokeronly10/30/2014 9:16:08 AM GMT
I think super has a point, although it is inaccurate, bigoted and divisive. This is the way to continue along the same path of alienation and tit-for-tat, never ending spiral to mutual destruction. No tolerance, no engagement and no idea. or to put that another way..
