They're all the same if the first thing they do is blame some other SIG for some tragedy.
You know, that Brevik guy killed all those kids in Norway on 7/22 last year. I wonder if there is a connection?
I'd be willing to bet that tapping people's emotions is worth more money than oil. Tribal instinct is the source of the biggest revenue stream in history. More blood has been spent and money made off the affection we feel for each other than any other natural resource. I wouldn't be a bit surprised that we find out that poor idiot that shot up that theatre had some ideology manufacturer bleeding him until he sacrificed his own identity to some screwy cause. And now he's a monster and little more than red meat for a whole new pack of dogs.
And we all join in on the side of one acronym or another, tromping and shouting because we bought a concept designed to be loved but not embraced.
