After the utterly asinine suggestion by an administration spokesdoofus that if there were more jobs, there’d be fewer jihadi, I suppose I should have expected this:

Why don't ISIS have a HR department or email address where you can upload your CV?

Still, give the questioner credit for keeping his wits about him:

… seems a longshot just to travel thousands of miles on the off chance they will employ you as a murderous rogue when they could conduct a perfectly good Skype interview.

Then again, truth be told, we don’t really know how selective they are.

    Wow. I’m guessing that troll (guessing it IS a troll) probably now has DHS or whoever ALL up in his business.

    I get that there are perhaps other motivations but I remain absolutely boggled that young women, especially, are leaving to join ISIS. That’s like, I don’t know, a lobster signing up to work for a seafood restaurant.

    Many are the young women who have said of their situations, “Anything is better than this.” Unfortunately, they had no idea what they were getting into.

    Saying, “it can’t be worse” only betrays a lack of imagination.

    Exactly. I can come up with at least fifteen ways of how every situation could be worse….of course, that is often what keeps me up at night, but still.

    Kids who grow up coddled, and that’s not just a Western Civilization thing, don’t really have any idea how rotten people are. Reading about it and even seeing it in the movies is nothing like running into it for real. Took me a long time to learn to be careful. Sometimes I think I’m only still here because I am lucky.

    Read about ‘Combat Flip-Flops’ the other day. Big proponents of the ‘put a Jihadi to work’ idea. That only works for people who are impoverished. Doesn’t work so well on people who have food and clothing and have been fed a steady diet of ‘Death to the Infidels’ since before they were born.
