    and how they are inconsistent with your claims. Sorry if you don't like that.

      with your conclusions in the slightest and that absolute certainty that you know best and need to 'educate' me is exactly why I don't care much about your opinion. Your self righteousness and even arrogance (from my perspective) is a distinct turn off in any discussion with me. Lecturing me won't get you anywhere because I don't know you really and thus have as far as I am concerned you have neither the right nor basis to do so.

      People are allowed to think in ways other then the single way you do and even more shocking sometimes their view is better then yours.

      And yes I said good day but I wanted to try and make the above clear to you. I leave you last word.

        make me feel exactly the same. Which is how we end up in these back and forths.

          please point out where exactly I have lectured you in this exchange because I don't think  have.

            You really should brush up on your telepathy.

            Even Der Spigel is saying that the evidence points to Assad as most likely. Even in Lewis' latest front page article his 'source' really doesn't make the claims it makes.

            And frankly I could make the argument that Assad not only finally admitting to his chemical stockpile but turning it over is an admission of guilt in it's own right.

            But you know what? I really don't care enough so long as those stockpiles are removed from play. So if you wish to (from perspective) dig your head in the sand and ignore the sheer volume of evidence that's up to you.

            I'm sure I can find another in the other thread.

            Not that this is useful mind you.

            And certainly if I looked through some of our past interactions I could find the exact same condescending tone repeated over and over. And I've made numerous efforts to reach out, but you've always gone back to the sniping. Which I'm just as guilty of at this point, for the record.

              You mean the telepathy part?

              You were the one making statements about what was/is going on in my mind.

              The part about Der Spigel?

              It's a fact and don't really see how mentioning it could be construed as a lecture but if you thought it was my apologies. Though I would like to know how you want me to comment basic facts to you.

              The third paragraph? Again I suppose that could be construed to be a lecture but it never was. If anything it was the opposite and supposed to point out there are multiple points there but I wasn't pursuing them.

              -------

              Further actually this is useful because we are actually trying to communicate here. If it wasn't useful I would have really walked away.

              That said if you want to go though my comments let's go though yours too. Because frankly I can't think of a comment where in you are not:

              Telling people what they think
              Telling people what they should think
              Behaving in some self righteous arrogant way.

              In point of fact you've done so in this discussion at least twice and every comment of yours has dripped with arrogance at how dare I not think like you.

              You ever heard the saying about stones and glass houses? Because it really applies to you.

                here, or we ask questions. That's what communicating is about. People may want to think otherwise, but that's how it is. When you tell someone something you're telling them something you think it true. That's how language works. You might not like my style of writing, and I'm sorry for that, but you constantly change the subject and move the goal posts and claim you aren't saying things you clearly said. And then you act like I'm "lecturing" for pointing that out. And maybe lecture was the wrong word.

                I had a much longer comment but I don't think this is the place for this sort of thing. We can continue in messages if you'd like.
