    Look, hoss, I am going to discuss anything I goddamned well please and you are going to do one of two things: learn to deal with it or run off crying like a little bitch.

    Either way, one thing that is NOT going to happen here is that I am not going to avoid addressing your obfuscations and reframing of the debate in dishonest terms.

    Get over it, pal. This is the way it is.

    No one is making that argument you keep trying to make. And you keep trying to make this argument and attribute it to your opponents because you can't justify your pretend tuff guy persona without looking foolish over this issue.

    Well guess what, cupcake...it's too late for you to not look foolish.

    Close. The problem is the nature of the target, a small number people that hide among the civilian populace. In that, it is impossible to engage the target and not kill civilians.

    Notice the sewers we have here in America? Well in other countries those are 'underground smuggling routes'.


    If they have no standing army then how can we really excuse things that take out massive amounts of people (almost ever single precision drop) with a remote push of a button?
    Its the nature of the beast, given the specifics of the targets.

    Nope, discussions require a minimum of two people.

    Since you're babbling about irrelevanies and no one is following along, you're not having a "discussion", but a monologue.

    Do note how much of your posts aren't being responded to.

    What I am noting is how you tuck tail and run from any legitimate conversation.

    Wanna give us another diatribe about how you like blowing up civilians? How blowing up innocent civilians is ok in your book?

    We do like to laugh around here. May as well be at you today.

    I see you haven't read the OP and hence aren't aware of the thread topic.

    I have been addressing the topic. Why haven't you?

    Welcome to the real world. They started a war, we should make sure they never ever have a chance to start another.

    By killing them.



    Functionally, both situations wind up with dead civillians, aka terrorists.

    Since Afghanistan started the war, what's the problem?

    Ain't none.

    Now, back to the real matter.

    Assume a strike succeeds in killing a dozen on the ground.

    What difference does it make if we use an F-18, a Predator, or a B-52 to make the strike?

    Correct Answer: No difference whatsoever.

    Do you have the integrity to admit this, or not?
    afghanistan didn't start the war.

    I can't see my family members being killed in such a manner, because I'm not going to harbor a terrorist, thereby making my home and my family a target.
