      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. The war in Iraq is over

    Until then, reserve judgment. There were plenty of people who questioned the Gulf of Tonkin incident and then there were plenty of Patriotic people who supported the POTUS no matter what. The facts didn't support it then and they don't now. There are many people who have stated they were pressured to provide the 'correct' answers and the shift of power in the intelligence community is well known too, if you are willing to look. Until then, keep the faith. Can anyone say Turner, and Maddox
  2. The war in Iraq is over

    Well, since you brought it up, I don't know why you wasted the "if". There is no "if" Bush was lying. Bush was lying. Either he presided over one of the worst intelligence fuckups in history, or the intel was good and he spun it to the point of incredulity. There were no WMDs. We know that now, and I believe Bush had sufficient intel to know it from the beginning. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and yes Powell fucking lied. Powell doesn't get a free pass from me. Fuck him. He's got no business in the Obama administration as far as I'm concerned. The consequences of his UN dog and pony show far outweigh any experience or honor he may have once had. or, maybe The countries that had a lot invested in Iraq, ie France, Germany, and Russia Saddam owed them large sums of money. for all the nice toys we blew up in the first gulf war. they were making a killing on the UN scam oil for food/drugs so it is not a stretch, that they (Russians) came in and removed said WMD. we all know Saddam had them before, using gas on the Kurds. because if you are the above mentioned countries, making the US look stupid to the rest of world is win win just a thought and before any says "if knew the Russians did it, why didn't we call them out" simple all those missiles from the cold war are still pointed in the same place
