    I guess so.

    You just did.

    Obama's "red line" statement was one of the dumbest he's ever made. Now, he's furiously trying to backpeddle and avoid having to back up that statement with action.

    I know it was used as a defoliant and that sounds a lot nicer than dioxin. Sounds kinda harmless, don't you think. Our military and their chemical corporations couldn't resist a little more corporate welfare with a nice chemical cocktail for Vietnam. Dioxin, think Bhopal, India. Our media minimized the evil intent of this "defoliant." They always fail us because they are infiltrated with Intelligence Assets influencing our news.

    You'd have to be incredibly nave to think that the Corporate Chemical manufacturers were not aware of the extremely toxic nature of their product. I'm just as sure the military knew and US soldiers fall into the category of collateral damage. I don't see any high moral ground demonstrated by our Nation in any of these campaigns/misadventures. I do see lies, obfuscation, deceit, treachery, chaos, death, destruction, etc. and all producing huge profits for The Corporate Welfare Network known as the Military Industrial Complex to the current tune of $700 billion per year.

    The military has an interesting way of crunching numbers on these sort of things. I'm sure some blue eye shade twit who never even saw a jungle estimated US lives saved by defoliation VS lives lost and opted to spray us "for our own good".

    Frankly, I am never offended by a Brit calling us Yanks. I think it's kind of cute.

    No, it's not. It's like a Brit calling us American - for 99% of people. Of course, for some people it might mean something else.

    I agree and don't know why anyone would be offended on either side of that exchange. 'Brit' isn't much different than 'Jap'.


    I'm not sure they like the 'limey' label, though. Personally, I think it's fine (for the British navy) considering it's origin.
