I figured you like FREE SPEECH and encourage debate by not engaging in debate, you're simply a chicken and afraid to be called out. I don't care that Bruce thinks I am wrong because that's something I have to accept to EXERCISE MY RIGHT to my opinion and views. You on the other hand would love to stifle anything that is contrary to your beliefs. You really have an option if you don't like what I say: put me on ignore! I have a feeling that you won't though, because you're the kind of asshole that slows traffic down to glee at the site of an accident or blood on the road.

Oh and by the by, the so called "misdirection" is only an OPINION that you two and a few others here might have, it is not a fact by any means.
As to stupid comments, I would have to say that you have made far more than your share of those here, so I don't think you have much to say about anything anyone else comments on.
Let's stay focused here and see if you actually have a clue: Why did we invade Iraq? if you can answer this question without resorting to party line bullshit I will pull my hat off for you but until then I will keep thinking of you as full of shit. Really, it's up to you!

Drewprof is a case in point, did you ever notice that when he doesn't like what you say, his foul mouth and the name calling is the first thing that he reverts too?
Again see above response: Once you have substance and you can back up what you say then I will revert to talking to you like a human being. For now you're just a turd that thinks it knows what's going on the ME but again, over and over I have shown you where you were wrong but it's not registering, I wonder why?

Better idea; let's see if you can do what you ask of me. Let's see if you can come up with something that isn't "We went in there for the oil."
Talk about party line bullshit, you seem to be even more full of it than just about anyone else here.

Focus is something you seem to have real problems with, no matter what the subject is you always seem to revert to the same old crap about how you know so much more, and have so much better insight, into everything that happens in the world. Dude, you are absolutely full of information, or maybe it's something else that you’re really full of...

Come on, let's see you try and pass off some more of your OPINION as fact...

Well, that's nice of you to attempt to make this a personal issue. You don't know me and you most certainly have no understanding of what knowledge I have on the subject so perhaps you should ask questions instead of simply berate.

Why people "volunteer"? Hmm - if you look at the stats - people don't "volunteer" - they are herded on 'recruiting drives' and lured with BS delusions of education and stable income.

If you had ever lived in a country with a large American ex-pat community you would know exactly what I'm talking about. Let's see you over here in Japan sitting around a table of ex-US military who can give you FIRST HAND - their take on why people "volunteer".

I see that you failed Evasive Replies 101, you're so transparent!
Just admit that YOU have no clue why we invaded Iraq and that's a good start towards positioning your mind to learn something. I think I have made it VERY clear why we invaded Iraq on many occasions and I have used the oil as sarcasm but you never caught that because you're too absorbed looking for shit that ain't there. Please dude, really get an education.

A beyond obvious conflict of opinion over this one - so how about this?

Let's REMOVE the "oil" and "war on terror" fall-backs and see if anyone can come up another take on this war?

I'm guessing it's too much to ask.
