These events really show the talentless and incapable nature of middle easterners. There is no food, but they don't have the talent to farm, so they riot. There aren't enough material goods, but they don't have the talent to produce them, so they riot. Ironically all of this happens while they simultaneously complain about a lack of jobs.

@Mr Uskowi
Why do you allow racist comments like "March 25, 2011 1:11 PM". That is really disgusting to read, do you support that?

Anon 8:45 PM,

The comments we do not release are the ones involving personal attacks and foul language. Publishing comments does not mean we are in favor or against them, they are the commentator's views not ours.

You have also asked if we support racist comments made on the Arab freedom movements. What do you mean by such suggestion?
