Can we have a moratorium on context free posts on how weird and crazy one of the "axis-of-evil" members is
while there's a significant probability that US arms will be used against them?

Aside from it being a shitty post, (I mean, ninjas in 2012?) this sort of thing is PR or propaganda for war, in the current context. Evaluating context is difficult, but without context metafilter becomes just another wall in the echo-chamber reverberating this stuff. And, war is pretty serious, yes? And once you start adding context it just becomes a shitty post.
You could take the position that it's not the job of metafilter to filter out war propaganda... but I don't think you should take that position.
