Porn bombing

Let them shoot their loads at home

The other day I browsed through the newest edition of Dabiq, the IS's glossy monthly magazine. This is one of the most obscene publications you might imagine. Dozens of pictures of young men with deadly weapons, children praying with guns in their laps, victims of terrorist attacs and war prisoners having their throat cut. It is all about power and We against Them. The NRA might love it. And the imagery might fit Heckler&Koch and Krauss-Maffey as well.

There is one additionally disturbing picture of a scene after the Paris bombings. Dying and dead men on the ground, chaos and havoc - and one figure which is pixillated so that you cannot recognize it - or her. This seems to be the only picture of a female in the whole magazine. Small wonder that those young men tend to get a little bit nervous. And then they are promised a couple of willing chicks as soon as they enter paradise. Must be a temptation.

To relieve their anguish I propose that bombing the IS's strongholds should not be done with explosives only, but with lots of copies of Hustler, Playboy, porn DVDs, classified ads sections from major cities around the world etc. Show them that fucking can already be achieved in this world. And how it's done, in case they don't know.

This might not win the war against terrorism (nothing will). But if it prevents only one young man from bringing death and destruction to hundreds of others it might well be worth a try.

It won't work. Their brains are structured differently than yours. http://www.vox.com/...t=share:article:top
"Research consistently finds that conservatism is positively associated with heightened epistemic concerns for order, structure, closure, certainty, consistency, simplicity, and familiarity, as well as existential concerns such as perceptions of danger, sensitivity to threat, and death anxiety."

       [+} Excellent. A leavening of defaced copies of the Qu'ran should wind them up nicely, and some cartoons depicting allah and mohammed too.   

       Anything else that might make their blood boil ? Blow up dolls ? Sex toys ?   

       // The NRA might love it. //   

       Intriguing that you use the conditional form, "might". The NRA, and every shade of white supremacist, armed survivalist nutter, neo-Nazi and militant Christian from very-very-nearly slightly liberal to full on Stalhelm and jackboots will fall upon it with little cries of glee.   

       "Hello, we are in a hot country far away, we have very limited conventional military capability, and we have killed a lot of your civilians in an unpleasant way. This is because we are feeling particulalrly lucky, and know our deity will protect us".

       Can you recognise deliberate irony when you read it ? Hopefully, the answer is yes. The whole point of grouping all those disparate points of view is to produce an ironically humorous effect.   

       It's never funny when it has to be explained ...   

       // as you're not the type to change opinions //   

       Only those of others, who of course are always wrong (if they deviate in any way from ours).
8th of 7, Dec 04 2015
  

       Addendum: There is a catch, of course, as Roald Dahl describes in "A Piece of Cake" when the RAF decides to paint funny cartoons on their planes so that the Germans will laugh so much that they cannot shoot straight any more.   

       "Peter, you're marvellous," I shouted. "But can all those German pilots read English?"   

       "Oh hell," he said, "oh hell."

       //This might not win the war against terrorism (nothing will)// How about we just nuke 'em back to the middle ages where they came from?
MaxwellBuchanan, Dec 04 2015
  

       I understand the sentiment.   

       It can be very hard on boys in islamic cultures to have so much testosterone and developping sexdrive. There are many problems with this for men and women and also some hidden and illegal solutions.   

       Dropping porn on them?   

       Porn is not a celebrated sign of our cultural enlightenment.   

       We could send them flowers and smiles and diplomacy and share our wisdom and ask to share in theirs.   

       We could stop the global arms trade and bring food to the hungry and stop global destructive politics.   

       Sorry,   

       Our sordid video's are not the answer.

On a side note, I was recently reading about Honor culture, Dignity culture, and Victimhood culture, and couldn't help but think that women's sexual liberation played a part. In Honor culture it the biggest and strongest who gets the girls, in Dignity culture the social pressure and rules of female chastity and matrimony eliminate that competition, so everyone has a chance to hook up with someone. But with Victimhood culture and the sexual liberation of women, it reverts back to women sleeping with who they want to, which means sleeping with who they are attracted to, which per their biological programming means the biggest and the strongest again.

       What [MB] said.   

       // We could send them flowers and smiles and diplomacy //   

       ... or maybe a few dozen JDAM's ....   

       // and share our wisdom //   

       Can they pay in hard currency for that ?   

       // and ask to share in theirs. //   

       ... which presupposes they have some, or indeed any.   

       // We could stop the global arms trade and bring food to the hungry and stop global destructive politics. //   

       Why ? The current way is much more entertaining ...

       // Why ? The current way is much more entertaining ... //   

       'cause we're all gonna die otherwise.
'tsa pretty compelling reason.
  

       y'gotta admit   

       Wait that one was a rhetorical question wasn't it?   

       //This might not win the war against terrorism (nothing will).//   

       Good thing there weren't a lot of people with that attitude back in the 1940s. We'd all be goose-stepping the Deutschlandlied down Adolph Avenue today.   

       No, civilization will prevail. We've been fighting barbarians since the dawn of time. We might have to smarten up and get a little stronger but that's how barbarians have been effecting civilized people for a long time. This isn't our first test, it won't be our last.   

       As a generation that's been handed its freedom we tend to forget it wasn't free for the hundreds of thousands of people before us who gave their lives so that later generations might enjoy it.   

       In other words, we'll be fine if we don't act like a bunch of fucking pussies.

       The "War against Terrorism" creates what it is supposed to combat. In the 1940's the war was against a nation with an organized army, resources and structures which could and would be defeated. The "War against Terrorism" is an ideological crusade which causes each day dozens of young men to join the ranks of the perceived underdog.   

       // So, we're agreed on the nuclear option? // No. I'd rather commit suicide than kill myself.
Toto Anders, Dec 07 2015
  

       //No.//   

       Maybe just a small one, see how it goes?
MaxwellBuchanan, Dec 07 2015
  

       Well, okay, if you offer your house as a test site. Let's see if there emerge any terrorists from it after we're done.

       // which causes each day dozens of young men to join the ranks of the perceived underdog.//

       Age and treachery will ALWAYS overcome youth and enthusiasm.

       O.k. Put please hold your bombs until a conflict arises which is solvable by them.   

       // Or we could do it for you. //   

       Yes please do. Which obituaries would I have to study to stay up to date with your results?
Toto Anders, Dec 07 2015
  

       //O.k. Put please hold your bombs until a conflict arises which is solvable by them.//   

       Bombs work better than bending over, grabbing our collective ankles and sobbing quietly into the pillow about how the enemy is absolutely super human and unstoppable as you've suggested.   

       Now that you've had your beating, I'll surprise you with this: I agree that there is a big sexual element to the enemy's recruiting and there might actually be something to your idea. And from out of left field, when you least expect it... [+].   

       Didn't see that coming eh? Gotta keep the other side off guard.   

       "Hey Omar! You coming out of your tent for target practice? You've been in there for 2 weeks straight! What's going on in there?"
doctorremulac3, Dec 07 2015
  

       // until a conflict arises which is solvable by them //   

       All conflicts are solvable with bombs. If enough are dropped, eventually all of your opponents will be dead; if not killed directly, they will die of thirst, starvation or suffocation in their bomb shelters.
8th of 7, Dec 07 2015
  

       ...and there's no problem that can't be solved by bombs that can't be solved by more bombs.
doctorremulac3, Dec 07 2015
  

       // how the enemy is absolutely super human and unstoppable as you've suggested //   

       The enemy might be stoppable. The "War on Terrorism" cannot be won.   

       "It does not matter whether the war is actually happening, and, since no decisive victory is possible, it does not matter whether the war is going badly. All that is needed is that a state of war should exist." -- Emmanuel Goldstein, in George Orwell: 1984
