  1. Um, this isn't an analogy. This is what happened.
  2. And all of a sudden we are within spitting distance of "women must be accompanied by a blood relative if they leave the home".
  3. Well, you chose the quote. I don't really see any other way of interpreting it. "... while there is a large body of citizens, little, if at all, inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms..." The intent is clearly for a comparable force.
  4. The author appears to be endorsing tanks and hand-grenades for the general public. Edit: Not Razr. Quoting is hard.
  5. Life is too short to dance with fools like you.
  6. Sensational. We are no longer restricted to killing any male over the age of 15 with impunity. Women and children are now fair game too.
  7. The right direction might not be the fun route, and (as with all countries) there are a lot of idiots you need to convince.
  8. This is one of the few actual attempts at a discussion from you guys, so I'll have a go at it. So you think that people who feel they are getting fucked by society should just take one for the team to preserve your standard of living? The answer is it is too late - the dream you cling to is already gone. A simple look at the average salary over the last 50 years when compared to pretty much anything highlights one of the core difficulties: The economy has been hollowed out and civic resources savaged in the name of short-term political goals. There are no quic
  9. This would be because you are dumb and stupid and do not understand that the prosecutor has an opinion on this case too.
  10. Everyone was careful about the paper trail for a reason. That's why they have it. You notice the Fusion people specifically kept Mr Steele off their payroll until after a final buyer had been found?
  11. Yes Mr Joker. We see and understand the paper trail. The Rs were organising a dirt file on Trump, then didn't need it when he won the nomination. So Fusion sold the final product to the Dems instead. Spin whatever you like.
  12. How long do you think it took them to put the dossier together? It was released only a few weeks later.... They were just haggling over who was going to finally pay for it.
  13. Certainly, if the ICC was holding american leadership to the same standard which is applied to select other countries, they would be having serious problems. But in terms of actual legal evidence (as distinct from the "america says you did it, so you will be shot at dawn" standard usually used at the ICC) I think you will find that pretty much everyone is covering everyone else. Responsibility has been expertly dispersed.
  14. Who? For what? If there is one thing governments achieve exellence in, it is spreading responsibility far and wide so noone can be personally liable. The only obvious person you could go after would be Yoo. But for what? Providing bad legal advice?
  15. Do as we say, not as we do. American exceptionalism writ large. This attitude is the reason so many people in so many countries hate us.
  16. This is a big call, and is not supported by the fact that the Taliban promptly secured him and were happy to discuss legal processes. Their downfall was their aspirations to being a recognised government, which lead them to try and behave like one.
  17. You are projecting. Not all of us are habitual liars like yourself. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2001/oct/14/afghanistan.terrorism5
  18. Even better, he was there, imprisoned by the Taliban, awaiting any sort of evidence to support an extradition proceding. But that didn't quite fit in with the kangaroo court that america had in mind.
  19. My impression is they are much more politically savvy and capable this time around.
  20. It would have been much improved if they had bitten the bullet and evacuated their sham government, and just done an orderly handover to the Taliban. Would have even worked on the exact same timetable.
  21. When even social scientists are calling you out for shit citations, that really should make you stop and reconsider your position.
  22. Sandy Vag syndrome detected. Your entire career will be judged harshly by history. Don't like it? Maybe try and do something constructive in the world instead.
  23. Driver's licence? Passport? Tax return? You're a funny guy.
