No that's not what I meant to imply at all. And thanks for the clarification.

Usually when I am going to post something that I find difficult to believe I try to second-source it. If that is not your way then that's fine with me. To each his own.

The reaction from some folks that you experienced is typical of what one should expect when posting things that are at the very least, uncorroborated.

PS Shabah, wtf are you up to now, ... or is this yet another manifestation of the ubiquitous Kirk Vining entity? I thought the previous exorcism worked.

Again, so what does it have with credibility? Id did not make the video nor did I state that I believed it. I think you were shooting from hip to put it lightly but it could also be another move to generate momentum to get this perfessar once and for all. Good hunting Bot!

Did you post it without checking for other sources?

You may have missed this part, "Usually when I am going to post something that I find difficult to believe I try to second-source it. If that is not your way then that's fine with me. To each his own."

The same rules apply for other folks as I use for myself.

Again if I was going to state that the video was factual and that I believed in its content I would have checked more than one source because then credibility will be an issue. This post is not about what I believed nor did it state that I was convinced that the dude was telling the truth. As amtter of fact if you read my post again you may get it but I guess when you are out for blood you can get blinded. Are you out for blood bot?

What in the hell do you know what goes on in my mind? I actuall was hoping that it was not true, I think I am tired of all the bad press we get and it's not helping our boys out in Iraq and Afghanistan one bit. If that is not a concern then what is?

Doesn't pass the smell test.

Those who oppose the war just love bad news and hope we lose the war in Iraq. It's hard for them to restrain their glee over America's misfortunes. It gives them an opportunity to say "I told you so."

They would prefer to be "right" than to see America successful in Iraq.

I am sure it does pass the flymaster smell test. More shit for you to hover on top.
Glee over America's misfortune? it's your cause that's America misfortune, that's one of the reasons we are there in the first place. Don't tell it is not so.

America's success is not dictated by spent cartridges, blood and hatred. America's success is to secure a future for our kids and not to have to fight someone else's war. If this answer does not please you keep hovering maybe you will find a way to plant a maggot somewhere.
