  •  I am so glad you could interpret what Markos (1+ / 0-)

    meant to say, even though that's not what he actually said.  

    The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. -Nelson Mandela

    •  He did say it (0+ / 0-)

      He wrote more than that one muddied paragraph.

      Are you really that intent in thinking ill of Markos?

      Honestly, you really think your unfair and rather ridiculous interpretation of his intent is what he meant?

      Why would you want to believe that is what he meant instead of the interpretation I posit?

      •  Well, I can agree with this statement of yours: (0+ / 0-)
        He wrote more than that one muddied paragraph.
        Honestly, I am not intent about thinking ill of Markos.  I do however, think ill of what he wrote.  It was neither well written nor is it well reasoned.  Chemicals weapons ARE different.  Which is precisely why they have a different status in International Humanitarian Law.  Kos may not have meant to say what he came across as saying, but the fault then lies with the writer NOT with the reader.  And, if another writer points out the logical fallacies in the first writer's work (as has been done here), that is quite legitimate.

        With the Decision Points Theater, the George W. Bush Presidential Library becomes the very first Presidential Library to feature a Fiction Section.
