I don't understand why Assyrians or even the Europeans would be against North Korea?

How many North Koreans do you know?


I never met a person who was from North Korea, so why should I be against them.


The problem is that the retard clown Trump is trying to intimidate N. Korea. That retard acts like a racketeer, like a criminal who demand money from somebody in return for so called safety. States do this all the time to their own citizens. Trump is trying to use this on the whole world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racket_(crime)


Now he demands also (oil) money from Venezuela.


Trump is a corrupt retard and is not smart enough to be a politician. He is using soft/hard power or good cop/bad cop strategy on wrong cases.


All what matter for him is business of his disgusting Jew convert daughter Ivanka.


Because of Trump America is loosing little by little its credibility, face and at the end America will loose respect from the free world. With Trump the USA will become a global paria. Moron Trump is destroying America.

If America doesn't tackle down REAL global problems like Sunni extremism terror/Turkey state terror, America will go down badly.

Real evil must be destroyed and if real evil like Turkey/Daesh will not be exterminated, evil will spread to the free societies, like a virus...

North Korea did nothing bad to me, why should I be against N. Korea?

But I'm against the unipolar world and the global dominance of 1 superpower which is against my people.

It is to late. Nothing will happen, N. Korea is a nuclear power now. And N. Koreans are crazy enough to use all their weapons. So nothing will ever happen.

I'm pro N. Korea btw and against the USA. F*ck USA if they think that they will dominate the world longer than the Romans did. Empires come and go and I don't believe that the American Empire will last as long as the (Eastern) Roman Empire, which lasted for more than 1000 years.


What they can do and before it is also to late is to stop Persians. When Persians also got a nuke, then it will be also to late.


I heard that Turkey also want a nuclear weapon. The Turks want to get knowledge from Russia and Pakistan. But I'm sure that the USA will never let the Turks to get a nuke. Because the Western world know the Turks very well. The Western world is using the Turks, because Turks are very stupid and very weak. No matter how stupid and weak you are, if you have got some nukes you matter in the global arena. But if Turkey got nukes, the Western world will loose control over Turkey and that will never happen.


Before it is to late, they should break Iran in pieces. Americans should create Great Kurdistan, otherwise the whole thing will get out of control.

plus side would be that South Korea would have a huge new labor force that can help propel the economy and alot of new natural resources!

Also, It's most likely we can call the area just Korea now instead of N or S Korea.

I just quoted the biblical verses. I didn't even say what was on my mind or what my opinion was. Everything you saw listed up there was the bible speaking. So are you going to be angry and emotional with your own bible? :p

P.S. He's a cultural Christian. Probably still believes in a few biblical contents. You can say he's "half Christian". Lol.
I don't think you got me right. In case you didn't, what I meant was actually that I'm a very religious Christian. I would never get angry/emotional with "my own bible". If anything, I would get angry/emotional with everyone and anything else beside that! ;)

And taking verses from the bible and placing them here doesn't prove anything btw. We all know what the bible SAYS, but fewer people know what it MEANS. Instead of searching only after verses, how about you look for their meanings; I'm sure you'll find them just by looking the same way you did earlier.

I would be more open to discussion and explanation, but like I said, I get too involved in religious topics, so I'm gonna let this one go. :)

News & Current Events / Anyone else hoping for the U.S to kick North Korea's @ss?

I am growing very tired of North Korea and its foolish midget with his constant threats.

I hope Trump eventually delivers on his promise to attack NK if they don't stop with their rhetoric.  Something like a quick military sting that will knock out a few of their launching bases.

Enough is enough

Most of the quotes above are from the old testament which as far as I am concerned, if you believe in Jesus and are a Christian, are completely irrelevant to you.  Never understood the term Judeo-Christian because they are completely different faiths.
The New Testament contradicts itself on whether Christians should believe in the Old Testament or not.

Jesus has said, ‘The Scripture cannot be broken’ (John 10:35). He referred to Scripture as ‘the commandment of God’ (Matthew 15:3) and as the ‘Word of God’ (Mark 7:13). He also indicated that it was indestructible: ‘Until Heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass away from the law, until all is accomplished’ (Matthew 5:18).

On the other hand, Paul declares the old testament as being outdated, ‘By calling this covenant "new," he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear’ (Hebrews 8:13). So, whose words do you prefer, Jesus's or Paul's?

I use Judaeo-Christian when I'm talking about the bible as a whole. The Old Testament is not purely Christian, even though Christians may abide to it.

Although I must say.. considering "beti ileh soora" and "betileh soora" --> I must say that they might have a small difference in meaning (but maybe it's just me seeing it this way). I feel as if they mean something like:
beti ileh soora  -->  my house is small
betileh soora    -->  it is my house that is small


Hope that makes any/some sense..
Yeah, that's true. I noticed that too. ;)

I noticed that Assyrian has contractions like English does - Do not: Don't. Going to: Gonna, etc...

Other examples:

Kh'zee - Zee
B'azen - Azen
Beti ileh Sura - Betileh Sura
Moodit wada - Mod wada
Tama Ila - Tamela

Etc...
yeah yeah, sure. And the list goes on! We got plenty of those.

Most of the quotes above are from the old testament which as far as I am concerned, if you believe in Jesus and are a Christian, are completely irrelevant to you.  Never understood the term Judeo-Christian because they are completely different faiths.

Having said this, there are a small number of the above quotes which are from the New Testament.  I think Ashoor hit the nail on the head, in that we need to read the line in context and not be a Jehovah's Witness and isolate the sentence and make it mean whatever we want it to mean. 

The issue regarding the number of legs an insect has.  Whilst context is the key to understanding, if a book is "divine", it shouldn't contain such errors.  The Old testament contains several historical errors (For example, the son of Hammurabi who had the Judeans captive has a completely different name in the Old testament than in any other historical source).

Whilst I am more Christian than Agnostic/atheist, there are contradictions in my beliefs because of my lack of belief in the Old Testament which contains so many historical errors that a divine book should not contain.  The contradiction in my beliefs comes in the New testament constantly referring to the Old testament.  The book that I believe in, which makes sense as a stand alone book, refers to a book which I don't believe in due to the inaccuracies. 

Another thing you need to take into account with the Old Testament is who wrote it, why it was written and where it was written.  The Judeans and Levites who were captive by the Babylonians wrote it.  They did it to preserve Judean history, as they were held captive and restricted from passing on their culture to their offspring.  Torah simple means "The Law".  Therefore many of the rules in Levictus which sound absurd are merely the laws that the law makers had at the time.  Back then, religious leaders and politicians were pretty much the same thing.  There was no difference.  In fact, religion was not even a concept.  Law makers were law makers.  The Torah was NOT written to start a new religion.  Religion was not even a concept back then.  It was only when it was translated to Greek for the benefit of Judeans who could not speak Hebrew that people outside the Judeans and Babylonians were introduced to the concept of God.
