    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    History? No, my degree was in physics and math. Then it was on to the Marine Corps and pilot training.
    What happened at Tonkin gulf? Can you describe it to me?

    No, it isn't. If the law says the speed limit is 65 and you're driving 150, you're speeding whether anyone charges you or not. It's not conjecture. It's not rumor. 150 mph in a 65 mph zone is speeding.

    I have never understood this silly strategy on the aprt of war supporters. What we signed is not conjecture. It is not rumor. It is written down and accessable for everyone to read.

    You misread. You said:

    I read every book I could get my hands on about Vietnam . . .

    I said so have I. I came in to the service just after VN, worked with a lot of vets. I am well educated on VN both from vets and from study. My college honors work was VN, as was some a good bit of my elective work. Not to mention several really good books. You are factually wrong on enough that I doubt you on a few fronts.

    Just like stopping genocide...

    or I mean... getting nuked

    or stopping them from supporting Al-Quackeda

    or giving them democracy

    it was one of those I made up after all the reasons we went there were found to be lies.

    Yeah your perspective is pretty clear there:

    No, they did not. Again, you are factually incorrect. I know you want to believe, I understand. But you are simply factually wrong.
    and yes, they did. I realize that it's inconvenient for you, but a series of "just-so" statements does not wash away multiple Security Council Resolutions, however long you repeat them, or however much you insist that their existence is "factually incorrect."

    Nope. Just recognizing thehistory of these conversations
    well that certainly is true - though you have skipped ahead to the part where you abandon even the pretense of responsibility to provide evidence.
