    Freedom is just a buzz word used so people think we have a different motive for getting involved.

Your critical thinking errors go far, far beyond your opinions and corrupt the actual way to get to them.

    You claim to be "for peace", whatever that means, but go out of your way to excuse Russia's actions solely because "they're not hypocritical about law." Which isn't even true anyway, but even if it were it would make no sense.
    Oh I know you know what peace means, you probably thought that was funny. And it's no bother excusing Russia's actions in Ukraine, AT THIS POINT! And the unclassified portion of the Church Committees report to congress is the relevant portion. Again, if you have knowledge of the classified portion that would diminish senator Church's declassified concerns/warning of potential for NSA abuses, please do share them.

    Stopped reading there. The idea that I've "done little more than regurgitate MSNBC talking points" is laughable, and the fact that you won't even back up your inane assertion is simply pathetic. Good day to you sir. I SAID GOOD DAY

    Very funny, because it's so generic and infantile. Saying you're "for peace" is like saying you're "for good things". It's so basic that it may as well be meaningless. Different actors have different roads to peace. Peace for some can mean discomfort for others, etc etc. Here's a piece of knowledge for you that you can use later on in life: everyone is for peace on their own terms, so saying you're "for peace" is for either simpletons or politicians hoping to appeal to simpletons.

    And it's no bother excusing Russia's actions in Ukraine, AT THIS POINT!
    Oh, I'm sure you'll continue to excuse it at later points. I'm confident.

    And the unclassified portion of the Church Committees report to congress is the relevant portion. Again, if you have knowledge of the classified portion that would diminish senator Church's declassified concerns/warning of potential for NSA abuses, please do share them.
    You just keep displaying your atrocious cognitive abilities:
    1- I didn't say anything about what the relevant portion was. That wasn't the debate then, it's not the debate now: the issue is that when you're told a "classified portion" of something exists, you take that to mean the person is unaware of the unclassified portion. But you can't even follow the train of thought about an example of a time you couldn't follow the train of thought. looooool! This is like Inception! A cognitive failing within a cognitive failing!

    2- How would you know what the relevant portions were anyway, you've never read the classified parts? lol!

    3- Why would someone share classified information? But again, why are you even talking about that, that has nothing to do with the discussion here.

    The discussion is about your horrible critical thinking skills, which lead you to these absurdly hypocritical stances, wherein you defend Russia when they're violating international treaties (or close to it, if you want to argue that) but have no problem being critical of the US for violating international treaties (or close to it). When you're asked if you care about international law or not, your response is that you care about if nations say they follow it or not, not it in particular.

    You're beyond ridiculous, and I'm going to keep calling you on it until you actually refine your thinking to the point that you could write a C paper in your junior year of high school, because frankly you're not there yet.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    There are no good guys, Jack. I'd think that with your background, you'd wholeheartedly agree.

    On the contrary. It's because of my background that I know there are good guys, and bad guys.

    The bad guys are the other side, right?
