Slave Prices

This is sick. Apparently IS has published the prices it charges for slaves. All religion is bad but these fuckers are more than bad, they really are the pits.

A prime problem is that such extremists thrive on instability (as well as religious ideology) and there seems no way to stabalise many Middle-Eastern countries. I read that there is no exact word for 'compromise' in the main language of Iraq (Arabic?). All the words used carry connotations of submission, defeat or have some equally negative nuance. As regards the Arab Spring, perhaps only Tunisia seems to offer some hope.

The three main causes of human conflict: religion, nationalism and ideology. I don't think they have to be obviously extreme versions. The fervency with which they are held roughly corresponds with the harm they do.

Presumably these slaves aren't just valued for their cooking skills either!
