Mates, we've now had 3 deadly Muslim terrorist attacks in a span of only 4 days.

He and Loretta Lynch's strategies of "love" and "laughter" are not working thus far.  Perhaps it's time to send in Chris Rock and Sarah Silverman ASAP?

Making light of terrorist attacks? Keep it classy.

This post is inappropriate, regardless of what has happened.

BonosTitaniumElbow's strategy of blaming Bono for everything is off to a poor start.

Thank goodness that this guy is back, I'm growing tired of GigaRazor. How tasteless can you be?

Hate and judge all you want. The reality is Bono is literally saying what the bible says. Some including myself may not agree with it, but his idea isn't his original

I think the message is topical and since Bono made public comments it is legit. As for the comedian reference he does have a point but of course it came out wrong and the media ran with it.

Any Western politician that doesn't acknowledge ISIS is betraying their own people.

I would rather keep it unclassy and be safe.

I'd rather this not turn political unless we're in the real world section of the forum.  I just want to enjoy the music discussion regardless of what political beliefs you may or may not have.

Not even sure what that means. Does a crappy, sarcastic cartoon making fun of terrorist killings keep you safe?

Ian, at least people have the stones to call out what the real problem is. Also save me your isim reactions.

Oh yes, a person named after an injury has the "stones" to call out the "real" problem, which is of course Bono. Somehow. Or did you mean terrorism? I can't tell. Are there no moderators on this forum? At minimum, this thread should be moved elsewhere.

Sorry, but Bono blurred that line BIG time. Especially during the last tour and the whole #RefugeesWelcome thing. (Very prominent in the Paris DVD).

Right now in July 2016, U2's music and politics go together. Not a good time for Bono to do his preaching. Especially here in America, millions don't want to hear it.

This post is ridiculous .... Bono was not articulating a strategy to defeat terrorism, simply ad libbing that we shouldn't lose our sense of humor.
