It's not NASA Science.
Da fuck? Is rocket science too triggering nowadays? Too penile?

human resources manager is suing her 12-year-old nephew for leaping into her arms
She is seeking $127,000 in damages from the boy, whose mother died last year. Westport News also reported that the 12-year-old appeared confused as he sat in the courtroom with his father.
Of the damage done, Connell testified that she did not complain at the time, but she said her life had been “very difficult” since the injury because of “how crowded it is in Manhattan”. “I was at a party recently, and it was difficult to hold my hors d’oeuvre plate,” she reportedly said.
What a horrible human being.

It seems everyone is taking his comment personally. He isn't blaming the victims but talking about root causes of extremism.
Hussam Ayloush, of the group's Los Angeles chapter, said American foreign policy has helped fuel the rage that drives Muslim radicals to kill in the name of their faith.
Look objectively at the entire situation. Is there something factually incorrect with that statement? Even the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Retired Lt. General Michael Flynn, said the Iraq/Afghan wars led to the rise of ISIS.
Flynn: We were too dumb. We didn't understand who we had there at that moment. When 9/11 occurred, all the emotions took over, and our response was, "Where did those bastards come from? Let's go kill them. Let's go get them." Instead of asking why they attacked us, we asked where they came from. Then we strategically marched in the wrong direction.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: The US invaded Iraq even though Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11.
Flynn: First we went to Afghanistan, where al-Qaida was based. Then we went into Iraq. Instead of asking ourselves why the phenomenon of terror occurred, we were looking for locations. This is a major lesson we must learn in order not to make the same mistakes again.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: The Islamic State wouldn't be where it is now without the fall of Baghdad. Do you regret ...
Flynn: ... yes, absolutely ...
SPIEGEL ONLINE: ... the Iraq war?
Flynn: It was huge error. As brutal as Saddam Hussein was, it was a mistake to just eliminate him. The same is true for Moammar Gadhafi and for Libya, which is now a failed state. The historic lesson is that it was a strategic failure to go into Iraq. History will not be and should not be kind with that decision.
Make no mistake in what I'm trying to say. Islam is a deplorable religion and I think the planet should be quarantined so it never leaves this rock. It has also been radicalized in the past century to an obscene level. Those two people are solely responsible for their actions. The victims did not deserve what happened to them. But US foreign policy has not helped the situation at fucking all.

It was the quote from the article in the OP of this thread.

There's a great book called "The World Without Us" by Alan Weisman that kinda examines ecological recovery in Chernobyl and other places.
From places already devoid of humans (a last fragment of primeval European forest; the Korean DMZ; Chernobyl), Weisman reveals Earth's tremendous capacity for self-healing. As he shows which human devastations are indelible, and which examples of our highest art and culture would endure longest, Weisman's narrative ultimately drives toward a radical but persuasive solution that doesn't depend on our demise. It is narrative nonfiction at its finest, and in posing an irresistible concept with both gravity and a highly-readable touch, it looks deeply at our effects on the planet in a way that no other book has.
