      Only the " Americans and coalition forces who will die needlessly as a result of that delay"  doncha know...

      •  Why don't you tell us to leave the site? (0+ / 0-)

        Pull out the FAQs on us.  Oh that's right.  This is Kos's site.

        And yesterday, MB straightened you out as well.

        Getting the hint?

          Yesterday, MB 'straightened me out.'

          What planet are you from?

          •  This planet. (0+ / 0-)

            The site's biggest Rahm-sycophant is taken to school.

            MB dispels Publius's usual everything-is-beautiful spin.

            It may be true that he didn't "straighten you out."  That may be impossible.  He sure did expose your bullshit quite thoroughly.

            •  The sites biggest (0+ / 0-)

              You do me the honor, sir, of overestimating my import.  And besides, being on the whole pro-Rahm hardly makes me or anyone a sycophant.  This characterization of yours is is simply hogwash.  As is your characterization of "everything is beautiful."

              But all that is rather immaterial.  You sir, engage in ad hominem.  

              •  I just love to see Kos getting more active. (0+ / 0-)

                The Dem loyalists like you keep quoting the FAQs as if you're site admins, telling critics of the Dems and this Administration to take a hike so you can have your little fan club with pictures here.

                Then along comes Kos and delivers criticism in his usual tough, succinct style that are far more devastating than the things you're claiming violate the FAQs.

                Then MB comes along when you're doing your usual spam routine on a thread and takes you down.

                •  Adn then you Double down (0+ / 0-)

                  It's ironic, to say the least, that you attempt to critic my posts which appeal to the faq by appealing to what you think MB and Kos think.  LOL

                  Well, there really is an easy way to resolve this:  Kos et al can decide what they want and put it in the faq.  Oh wait, they did that.

                  So until they change the faq, I will keep on sourcing it as the definative expression of what he and they want from this site.

                  And like I say, if Kos wants to make it part of the faq that Dems like me who support Rahm and Obama, or the war in Afghanistan are not really part of the purpose of the better Dem part of putting better Dems into power, then I will reconsider my partiicipation here.

                  Until then, I will keep reminding everyone that this is a partisan Democratic reform blog.

        •  ooops (0+ / 0-)

          And if the publisher puts in his faq that this site is opposed to the war in Afghanistan, I will reconsider my participation on his blog.

    •  A total clusterfuck (0+ / 0-)

      But the thing is, it doesn't matter when we leave.  That is, not leaving doesn't fix the problem, it merely delays it.  Nothing we are doing today makes it so things are a-ok when we leave.  Unless the plan is to never leave.

      1. Taleban overruns all of Afghanistan. Kills and hangs Karzai (yes, in that order - read their history).
      1. Bin Laden and his gang move in, start planning executing more attacks. They try to get hold of A Q Khan or other rogue elements from Pakistan's nuclear establishment (they have had contacts already).

      I can continue but you get the picture.
