Well, I saw Ed's post as a little more than an innocuous comment regarding a thread about China going Bush in three posts. I saw Ed's first post as a subtle suggestion that those of us who don't buy Bush's constantly changing description of the mission and purpose of the invasion of Iraq he directed - the planning, execution and subsequent inciting of a civil war while converting Iraq into a mass terrorist training facility for Al-Qaeda and any other nutjob terror outfit - are afflicted by some kind of terminal Bush conspiracy theorizing disability. FTL's response called him out on that and he then offered a statement of "I feel sorry you FTL" in response. Which I felt was superfluous. We all, already know his feelings towards FTL, and to be honest, I really don't care and expect not too many people really do.

It would have been more to your point if Ed just made his original comment innocuous and confined the scope to his observation that it took only three posts for the subject to get changed to Bush bashing. But to throw the extra turd in the pool and then say he doesn't like the guy who noticed and pointed out he threw a turd in the pool was, well, without much of a point.

Ed, I didn't mean to viciously attack you, which is apparently how my comment was perceived by you and others. My point was merely that you had changed the thread from the "Bush is the Devil" tangent I sent it on, to a "FTL is a sick puppy" tangent, which is in probably of less overall value to the discussion than "Bush is the Devil."

Back on topic, really...

I personally hope that the Chinese built this submarine unlike their SUV, lest we may be looking at severely contaminated sea bed (aside from radiation, look for obscene amounts of diethylene glycol) in the near future.

Well FTL delivered a 'fuck, fuck, fuckity murdering fuck' in between, if you'll recall. I actually found Ed's retort quite measured.

No sweat. However, I think the extra turd was rather constrained considering the quoted message it was thrown at.

Hey man, I am just sick of the god damn lies. This "intelligence services said this" has been a staple of these lying, murdering cocksuckers, something they think excuses them from the absolute horror they unleashed on these unfortunate people, and is nothing more than a sick, bankrupt lie. I am sick of the lies, the perjury, the misinformation, the craven immorality, the useless sacrifice of our troops, the utterly unnecessary brutal murder of the people of Iraq, sick to fucking death of all of it. Criticize all you like, but god damn it I got my fucking point across.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

All you cocksuckers know how to do is defend lies. You defend lies and liars. You defend perjurers. You defend a war that is an obvious clusterfuck and is an obvious crime. The whole perspective of you people has become so sick and twisted from your constant defense of the indefensible that it is time for decent people to stand up and say one thing loud and clear: fuck you. Fuck all of you for the murdering shithole you have dragged this whole country into. Fuck all of you for covering us in your murdering stink. FUCK YOU.

^ Which has absolutely nothing to do with the post you responded to. This thread is about a Chinese submarine, fer krissake! Keep it real, and show a little respect for someone whom I've never heard disrespect anyone here...

Seriously, you sound like you've completely lost your mind.

Oh for christ sakes! I didn't start the digression of the thread, did I?

You sure took it to a bizarre level. Ed has his opinions, he shares them thoughtfully and respectfully, and shouldn't be savaged for doing so just because you don't agree with him. All he said was that it took three posts to go from a Chinese submarine to bashing Bush, and he was right. Then you went off on some Iraq tirade, as if he made some mention of it. What was that!?!
