In order to stop violence everywhere we'd have to have global nuclear annihilation to wipe out all mankind so nature could start over... BUT the problem with that is any life form coming to dominate the world as we now do would still face the same problems we have now ie: Greed and Power and Control until we can eliminate those we will always try to kill each other for one or more of those reasons

Perhaps we could just start with the obvious ones and see how mankind goes for a while ?

The Arms manufacturers should be the first on the list. Environmentalists should not be on the list as they can save us.

These are all jokes but I suspect someone in a FBI office somewhere is reading this list and thinking "These people are really planning an attack!"

Because... reasons.

I was listening to a seemingly knowledgeable news correspondent on ISIS this morning. 

Reportedly ISIS fighters believe if they are killed by a female they will be denied entrance to paradise.  As a result female soldiers are one of the few things they fear.  Seems to provide an obvious tactical opportunity if true.

Wonder how far this femophobia extends? Transsexual? Transvestite? Transylvanian?

Regretfully wrong... if the WOMD to destroy the undesireables are unreliable, we may run out before we get to the end of the list. In which case, we would need Arms Manufacturers to make some more for us. Logically, they should be last on the list. People who can't think logically, OTOH, should be the first to go.

which just goes to prove that extermination is a self defeating exercise.

This is badly sourced and most likely utter rubbish. It was a 2nd party quote to begin with and I cannot believe it is still being repeated by news outlets. It's a good sound bite and has some bad comedy factor so that is enough to explain the long life of it.

Nah - be fine as long as we don't add Americans to the list!

Did we add lawyers?

Why use WOMD of that type? If we are attempting annihilation, surely biological would be easier - they have already tried twice with AIDS and Ebola...
