    You usually do.

    This is all your arguments ever come down to. You can never address what is written. You laugh, and then get all pissy when it's returned to you, and then all you can do is make another insult. That's it.

    You didn't counter anything I said, you didn't point out where I was "dumb and wrong". You just wrote "hahahahahahahahahaha you're wrong" and then got your panties in a knot when it was returned to you.

    Weaksauce arguments are weaksauce.

    Address what? You said something shockingly wrong. What do you want me to do about it?

    You didn't counter anything I said, you didn't point out where I was "dumb and wrong". You just wrote "hahahahahahahahahaha you're wrong" and then got your panties in a knot when it was returned to you.
    What was there to counter? It's obviously wrong, but a guy who thinks he lives in a police state isn't going to grasp that, so I just laughed. Does that bother you? If you don't like people laughing at you, learn more about things!

    Weaksauce arguments are weaksauce.
    Okay, I hope they make us both wonderful weaksauce penne in our future FEMA camp prisons.

    Nothing I said was wrong, you're free to try to point it out. But that's part of the point here. You never do. You can't. All you can do is make these drive by insults and that's it.

    So point out what is wrong, I'm sure it won't take much evidence to prove your case.

    You apparently missed out on the hundreds of millions of dollars used for infrastructure improvement in Afghanistan. You missed out on the vast majority of missions conducted for stabilization purposes. Dude...if you're that far off...I mean...what's the point? It's better to chuckle. I could spend time on the internet looking for sources, maybe find some studies, but...why? You wouldn't admit you were wrong but even if you did...what would it matter? Who cares?

    If you were a congressional aide or worked in a TOPI office or something, it would be worthwhile. But here? Why? Tell me why I should bother to educate you.

    Ooooooooooo hundreds of millions. Compared to the TRILLIONS we've spent blowing the ME up. Yeah...that's really a propaganda scheme to win the hearts and minds...oh wait, it's not. It's us covering our asses and rebuilding some of the crap we blew up.

    You did take math, yes? Hundreds of millions > trillions? No? Same ball park? No? Same sport? No.

    Go find your sources, bring them back, they won't contradict me. I never said we did zero rebuilding, and that's were you fail.

    Trillions? Wait, are we supposed to be counting things like the salaries of the troops? The cost to feed, clothe, and care for them? The logistical costs?

    Okay, then we're into TRILLIONS. Same ballpark. Same sport.

    Did you think before you wrote that? This is why I laugh, dude: what did you think all that trillions was being spent on? How much do you think a bullet costs? Whether you're on a find-fix-finish mission or you're building a bridge, 99% of the costs are exactly the same, being used for exactly the same thing. How much do you think it costs to send 100,000 people to the Middle East, build forward operating base for them, and provide for their room and board there? Whether the people there are killing people or training police or constructing schools, that's TRILLIONS of dollars over the course of a decade, regardless.

    Go find your sources, bring them back, they won't contradict me. I never said we did zero rebuilding, and that's were you fail.
    Jesus, you failed hard. Seriously, where do you think those TRILLIONS goes? How much do you think it costs to buy tens of thousands of port-a-johns and get a servicing contract for them? Would NATO soldiers not need them if they were rebuilding things? How much do you think it costs for tens of thousands of industrial air conditioning units? lol and you counted all of that for blowing people up but not for rebuilding. Hmmm...now you see why I just laugh most of the time.

    If we're including all those things for both, it's TRILLIONS. Same ballpark. Same sport. Educate yourself, this is disgusting.

    You're free to prove it. Again, all you have is insult. Your conclusion is just an insult. You have no proof, you have no evidence, you just have insult. Time and time again, your arguments boil down to nothing more than ad homs. The cost of the war is in the trillions upon trillions of dollars. Do you know how many more zeros that is than millions? Educate yourself, this is disgusting.

    Moderator's Warning:
    US to keep nearly 10k troops in Afghanistan after 2014.Ikari and OneWorld - knock it off.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    You're not capable. You're wanting.

    lol that cost includes what we're talking about. But you didn't know that. And you wonder why you're laughed at.
