A comment left on the blog.....
Your comments interspersed amidst the editorial suggest that the title of this post should be “Why I am a Joke and Command No Respect”
The whole paragraph has no basis in fact? On what planet are you living?
Image with whom? Try the citizens of almost every country in the world. Travelled beyond your own borders lately and heard what people are saying? Not just the demonstrators, mind you, but intellectuals - engaged and thoughtful people. Imagine what America’s founding fathers would say to GWB’s shenanigans.
Extraordinary rendition and the use of torture violates basic justice and human rights, is illegal under both international and U.S. law, and doesn’t accomplish anything of value. In fact, if you trace the history of some of the lies told by the White House in the run-up to war, you will find that some of the biggest stretches of the truth came from torture victims (eg. Saddam has aluminum tubes to build centrifuges for enriching plutonium).
So, remain jingoistic and xenophobic if you like. You, and those who think like you, are destroying a once-great and respected nation.
My invitation for him to battle it out like a man...
Hey, Liberal jackass!
You are welcome to compete in the arena of ideas if you so choose. A venue is located at http://z8.invisionfree.com/Cut_to_the_Chas...dex.php?act=idx
. Your head-in-the-sand simplistic evaluation of current geopolitical events can be put to the test there. Otherwise, I will assume you are one of the many small minded liberal flamers who dropped by daily to spew their vitriol. Only time will tell if you are a man and can back up your position. Don’t worry, little man, we’ll be around when you grow a pair. Thanks for stopping by. Maybe we will see you in the forum. I doubt it though, it’s the typical MO of your ilk to spew and run. Say Hi to Nancy, Chuck and Ted for us, we will see them in hell.
