Good point, it was. For whatever reason, you on the left seem to assume that if those oppressed nations suddenly had the rights of those here, they would do no harm...business as usual....optimistic...very....on any day.

yes, you do have to compare it to understand the difference. This is not the most violent time in the world's history. To ignore it means you have no understanding of the depth of horrors man has perpetrated on man in the last 1,000 years or so.

The massacre in Rwanda was almost beyond genocidal if you look at the sheer numbers killed in the short timeframe....the fact that most were done with machetes makes it even more inconceivable due in no small part that it is very up close and very personal.

And you think those flea-bitten nations wouldn't wipe each other out wholesale if given a chance??? Have you looked at the civil unrest in Liberia????

Please, we don't hold a candle to the indifferent depravity by comparison to other parts of the world. We haven't even started.

No morals of right and wrong. Home invasions, holding up convenience stores, killing for a jacket or a pair of sneakers. No value of life . No respect for the law.

Democrats protect the criminal more than the victim today. That has been obvious for quite a while now. Good is bad , and bad is good.

Actually, statistically speaking, the EU has more mass shootings than we do.
