    Did you even read the article? You're not supposed to be mad. You're supposed to laugh.

    U2 is on Apple Music. What more do you need?

    So does he represent anyone or does he just talk? Is he representing the "regressive left", the "pathetic right", the "I'm a liberal but I'm really an idiot"-pseudos? U2 is on Apple Music, google play, pirate bay and my personal favourite - soulseek. U2 - people like them, people hate them. What did we learn from this? nothing. Great.

    Sure get the CIA, PSYOP, and SNL on more producing more ISIS satire. Im not a war expert but I don't think you can much control, let alone defeat an army with humor.

    At best you may prevent some people from joining. Those who believe in the cause or are already involved would probably discount it as propaganda. People are not oblivious. ISIS can put out there own satire of the western world too. :roll-eyes

    Had a job interview with ISIS today. First question: "Where do you see yourself exploding in five years?"

    "Dad, I feel suicidal."
    "Praise Allah, my boy is all grown up!"

    Take that, ISIS.

    You seem to be confusing a great many things.
