    I like that! We could say we were merely testing what kind of ordinance would be necessary given how bombproof it really is.

    Repetition of that makes it seem as though it might be more than just your CPU that needs repairs.

    Liberal democracies tend to avoid "discrimination on the grounds of gender, religion, nationality, race, ethnic group, country of origin or any other irrelevant factor," do they not? Why then was it that the Knesset's Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee removed that very clause from the final draft of the Basic Law on Human Dignity and Freedom, attempting to emphasize the specifically Jewish identity of a state that prides itself on the supremacy of a specific ethnic/religious group in an arrangement not observed in legitimate liberal democracies? More importantly, as I mentioned, a state's internal domestic conditions are immaterial to the question of whether its ruling administration is responsible for the exportation of authoritarian or otherwise unethical international policies.

    This is almost as comical as your laughable claim that CIA agents have a "vested interest" in the preservation of democracy. U.S. political regimes have routinely committed unjust and anti-democratic international actions, and U.S. ruling administrations have traditionally been and continue to be among the foremost of political regimes directly or indirectly responsible for anti-democratic coups and support of dictatorial political conditions throughout the world. This pattern has been particularly stark in Latin America, with the CIA-backed removals of democratically elected leftists Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala and Salvador Allende in Chile (who was to be replaced by the brutal military dictator Augusto Pinochet), and support of the Contras and the Somoza family of Nicaragua, Manuel Noriega of Panama, Rafael Trujillo of the Dominican Republic, the Duvalier father and son pair of Haiti, Fulgencio Batista of Cuba, etc. It's also touched the Middle East through the support of the removal of the democratically elected prime minister Mohammed Mossadeq in 1953.

    I am just doing my part here pointing out to the mad man work and how many innocents did he and his legion of evil have killed.
    Who Makhno? I don't think he murdered many at all but I don't see the relevance for this thread?
