    Since our soldiers can't tell the good guys from the bad (they're all Afghanistan), it's best to shoot first and ask questions later. That's the way we handled the Indians back in the old west... Women and children too, because they were also a potential threat.

    Ah... I don't think you can equate those two things Rick.

    So you think our soldiers are just mass murderers? Just want to be clear on this.

    I agree. You can't.

    Well, perhaps if you addressed something actually said you wouldn't be so bored. But I can see where your silliness would get old. Later.

    hmm... "i know you are but what am I"? That's some good retorts there.


    Seriously, what have you said the last 3 pages other than sneak in that whole "affecting them" nonsense?

    Well, to you nothing as you missed every single part of the discussion I was having with Kelzie. You and VanceMack interjected yourselves without actually addressing what was said. The discussion was about the line between support and criticism. The two of you jump over in silly misunderstanding land, getting everything completely wrong.

    This is a lie on your part. But whatever keeps you going, I don't care. we interacted before Kelzie, and she agrees with my sentiments for the most part.


    What thread are you reading?
