    aggressive attack on another country based on lies.   More war crimes committed by our government in our names.  The Americans are at it again.  It looks like it's all over but the bombing.  The public is dazed and confused.  Too bad for Syria and the Syrian people.  The neocons got what they wanted.

    •  OH FFS! (10+ / 0-)

      I just have to say that when our entire government is described with the kind of adjectives one would use for agents of Mordor I can't help but completely turn off and discount everything you say.

      "criminal aggressive attack on another country based on lies" Really? Lies?

      "More war crimes committed by our government in our names" Again, srsly?

      I'm sorry, seems like "reality based" is a stranger in these kind of comments.

        They are lying.  This whole thing is a lie.
        War is a lie and a crime.

        Some people here don't appear to read newspapers, or magazines, or well-informed blogs, or just about anything actually.  And when I say "some people," I don't mean you, high uintas. :).

      •  And in defense of the "principle" that chem war... (5+ / 0-)

        shouldn't have consequences.

        The great irony is that the commenter thinks he's arguing from an elevated moral stance.

          •  It is the way you do it. (0+ / 0-)

            Yes, Big Al, defending the principle that force should not be used against war criminals is immoral.

            I realize you don't understand this. I put it down to your upbringing.

                I think people jumped on you in this thread, but this is taking it too far. I agree with much of your sentiments here (except for this last comment) and Joe shouldn't have brought your upbringing into it, but you need to take a break. This is ugly. Walk away for a little bit.

              want people to see the viciousness of your attack on Big Al. What part of community guidelines don't you understand, after being here almost three and a half years? You've committed an HR-able twofer in one comment. You morphed

              Ya, against war is really immoral.

              Yes, Big Al, defending the principle that force should not be used against war criminals is immoral.
              That one stinks like rotting straw in humanoid shape but what makes your comment smell worse than fresh turds on a hot summer day is this 'gem':
              I realize you don't understand this. I put it down to your upbringing.
              I couldn't rec Big Al's response to you, because he wrote "Fuck you." in the headline and all. Had he ignored your comment, or merely responded, "May your frozen weinie remain forever ungrilled," or something similar. I would have contented the site proprieties by reporting your foul comment to the helpdesk.

              After his response, reporting you would have also gotten him in trouble which he doesn't deserve, because your provocation was quite deliberate. What part of decency in commenting is so hard for you to understand? Were you taught your debating 'skills' in a barn? Even the mafia used to have a rule to keep innocent family members out of their hits. Perhaps doing something the mob would call an infama gives you a thrill of the type I would call sick.

              Enough fossil fuel remains on Earth to warm it 6 degrees C by 2100 AD if it is all used. A +6 C planet will only sustain half a billion humans. Human population will rise to 9 billion by 2050. Any questions?
