    Yes, Chicureo's commander understood it better. Torture them for information first, then shoot them.

    A Christian told me once that in the afterlife you get to experience directly all the joy and all the pain you've caused other people during your life. For some, that's hell.

    Oh DemonTree, for a moment ...I thought your post was by Terry...

    I'm greatly satisfied with my personal metaphysical beliefs and I have no reservations about criminals being severely punished. Torture really doesn't really deliver much satisfaction, unless you're running a MI6, CIA, Mossad, etc... intelligence interrogation. ...Otherwise it's just a waste of time...

    Common violent criminals are best resolved directly with a kill shot. The Brazilian issued Beretta submachine gun works well against the commonly used AK47.

    There has been a long out of control war going on, well before before Bolsonaro was elected and one of the major reasons why he won the popular vote, which was to aggressively fight crime.

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BW12NGNlHGE

    There are countless videos of criminals using machine guns against police patrols. Some of them remind me of the Middle East.

    “I'm greatly satisfied with my personal metaphysical beliefs”

    So are the Muslims who want to inflict Sharia law on Europe. They have no reservations about severely punishing criminals either.

    And the Middle East is an apt comparison. Fighting heavily armed criminals is much like a guerrilla war. How has the US army done at that? Do you think the Brazilian army is better?

    I understand that petty theft is rare in Saudi Arabia, must be because they live under a religion of peace and merciful justice.

    Women are encouraged to act modestly, with religious enforcers carrying wooden sticks. Women are even able to drive, which was probably a poor decision if you notice how females operate an automobile.

    In the UK your police still set the standard of polite justice, in the movies you always see them arresting criminals by saying “ would you please come with us?”
    They should try that in Rio or Recife...

    Then again, Brazilian criminals commonly use AK47s brazenly in the streets. I'm kinda convinced kill shots seem to be a reasonable enforcement.

    Instead of wasting the Taxpayers' Money to keep them locked, feeding them and looking after their families; Brazil can earn a decent sum from such exports. And as such the constitution is likely to change. So why not include such a change in it?

    My Catholic Church is currently under Argentine management and frankly have never really set the moral standard for ethics since the Borja Pope in 1492. I'd not recommend anyone seeking their virtuous guidance on commercially harvesting human organs.

    Now that the North American public have wisely elected an exceptional progressive diverse and socially responsible controlled congress, health care is clearly in their primary agenda to solve. I read “Medicare” for all is a citizen's right.

    They're a very wealthy country and they already have trillions of Dollars proposed to solve the enormous ecological gigantic carbon footprint upon our fragile Earth as proposed most recently by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

    Organ trading should join the global carbon credit trading scheme. Organs and fossil fuel usage should be all a part of global income redistribution of wealth.

    Congressista Ocasio-Cortez lifts this milico's conservative spirit, as she brings a refreshing reintroduction of the grandiose promises of Socialism to youthful progressive social justice warriors... which reminds me of the quote: “Socialism is like a nude beach, sounds great until you get there...” Yea, I know the Capitalist beach has some ugly broads lying down on its beach as well...

    I'd never demean the incredible creations of comrade Andrei Nikolayevich Tupolev. (Just imagine however if he'd been working in partnership with Boeing or Dassault...)

    Also...

    I actually wasn't referring to the site you linked, as my “lightly tanned” mestiza partner might bludgeon me unmercifully with a stick for visiting such ideological pornography: “Welcome to Stormfront...We are White Nationalists who support true diversity and a homeland for all peoples, including ours. We are the voice of the new, embattled White minority!” (What would I do about my mestizo children?)

    I was referring instead to one of the philosophical discourses such as:
    https://sureshemre.wordpress.com/2014/02/05/miletus-constantinople-istanbul-new-york/ To quote the thoughtful writer: My “fasciste she who must be obeyed” Lycée Français educated critic, constantly reminds me of that.

It's difficult when you define a person of color because most of us right-wing mestizos are hard to categorize by color. And then, how would you best describe some of the USA conservative's skin tone and genders of those that I really admire, such as Ben Carson, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, Candace Owens and Herman Cain.

    Which brings me to mention that I have learned something new on the Mercopress site. If you use the Guillemets style of quotation, MP omits the text. ...Interesting...

    Therefore, my third attempt:

    I unfortunately left out the quote of thoughtful writer: [There were few adjectives usually expressed in French that usually mean “pretending to know more than you know.” Those hurt. My goal in life is spiritual development not knowledge per se. I guess I don’t make that clear enough in my writings.] My “fasciste she who must be obeyed” Lycée Français educated critic, constantly reminds me of that.

    Hardly. Neither is racism, xenophobia, etc. But I'm not talking about ordinary conservatives; scratch the surface of the far-right and you'll see it's riddled with every kind of 'ism'. Bad enough to support them if you're not one of the groups they hate, downright pathetic if you are.

    For much of our history, we were always the poor cousins of the Argentines.
    They were for decades a symbol of the Latin ideal prosperous country with a large middle class. Good public schools and health. The average physical attributes are different with the fact that they are taller and certainly have no qualms about their national superiority. Even today, they have a higher percentage of university educated populace. Despite themselves, they still excell in agriculture and moderately preform sufficiently with manufacturing.

    Argentina had an impressive naval fleet, they even had their own aircraft carrier, while ours was decrepit. (Our navel intel was certain they'd decimate our defense flotilla in the late 70's.)

    Unfortunately, they have a bad habit of electing politicians that just don't rarely get it quite right.

    Argentines have an elegant national dance which reaches art form, Chile has monotonous pheasant dance which is pathetic.

    Saying that, right now in 2019 we are considerably better off and progressing well, but if our neighbors every got their act right, they'd easily rapidly eclipse us.

    There is plenty of evidence of Kretina's Korruption. I am not a victim of anything. Having visited both RGland and Chile I liked Chile best. Scenery is awesome, Wine terrific, people gentle friendly and nice, Cities and Ports steeped in history. The Navy and museums reflect Chile's friendship with the British, no evidence of that in RGland which has pockets of hostility as continually evidenced by the trolls here.

    Huh, I've never heard them called that.

    Is this inferiority/superiority complex thing the reason you call him 'little brother'?

    REF: “Unfortunately, they have a bad habit of electing politicians that just don't rarely get it quite right”

    They haven't so far. Brazil hasn't had a war for ages, the gangs are better armed and more experienced in fighting than the army.
