    I based my claim on that period of time between 2005 and the present where I have had, initially daily contact with my in-theater customer and later less frequent contact.

    My opinion is not based upon a one comment but upon the change I have seen over the years. I served for twenty years. I know the game.

    You have described your position from near perfect knowledge of the rules of engagement. You have never given anyone reason to believe you have anything other than passing familiarity with them. And yet you claim perfect (okay, near) knowledge.

    I have given my opinion. Just between you and me, as I am certain no one else is reading this, you have not convinced me.

    On to the next thing.

    You don't the game, and that's unfortunate. But I guess you like to make things up.

    Don't get so upset. It's fun to make things up.
    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.

    Except that you miss the point. If occupation of Afghanistan costs us more then the damage they could potentially do from using it to stage attacks, then they are still winning.

    I suppose that could be a way to look at it. If the destruction of the World Trace Center and the murder of 3000 US citizens costs less than denying Afghanistan to Al Qaeda I suppose we should withdraw.

    Naw. We should stay and kill Al Qaeda and other terrorists until they tire of the game and stop playing it.

    Sounds real easy as long as it is someone else's nickel! Did you ever think about the quote, "you get older, not smarter."

    Hi Dave, I love your short, almost nonsensical drive-bys. I do see how the quote you offered would be uppermost in your mind.

    And it's sad to consider that some are not too smart to begin with. By the time old age rolls around there's not much left.
