Re: Favorite Cookies

Absolutely correct. Raisins and nuts are nature's versions of Cheetos and Doritos. They're intended to be eaten by themselves as a snack. Raisins and nuts should never be included in any recipe you...

Re: BBC report: Jessica Lynch rescue story staged by US military

I'm guessing that the Pararescuemen who saw her initially as well as the doctors and nurses at each of the hospitals were instructed to lie about the gunshot wounds. Probably had a plastic surgeon...

Re: Dubya as the immortal Phantom

1. Iraq WAS an occupied dictatorship. Now it's an occupied assembly of arguing factions all hoping for a piece of the new Iraqi pie.

2. Until you can figure out a way to remove the Electoral...

Re: Teacher\'s pet

Our WMD. Locked in boxes, only taken out for formal holiday dinners and then never even completely unpacked.

Re: Soliders sent home for protesting civilian deaths

What I see from the article is that he ordered warning shots fired, then he ordered a machinegunner to try to stop the vehicle by hitting the radiator and then had the Bradley open up to stop it.

Re: Rumsfeld

I don't think the generals should make all the decisions by any means. But I do think the SecDef should be a strictly advisory position to the President, not a command position. We've got a...

Re: Rumsfeld

Herein we see the problem with having a civilian have the ability to overrule the military force developers on matters of explicit military doctrine. You don't go to war unless you plan on winning...

Re: US troops accused of excess force

"While British soldiers "get out on their feet", Americans, he said, were reluctant to leave their armoured vehicles. When they did do so - and this was the experience even in Uum Qasr - US marines...

Re: Soliders sent home for protesting civilian deaths

"Cease fire!" Capt Johnson yelled over the radio. Then, as he peered into his binoculars from the intersection on Highway 9, he roared at the platoon leader, "You just [expletive] killed a family...

Re: War Strategy

While the entry of Syria and/or Iran would complicate things to an incredible degree in terms of the current deployment of forces. In some ways, it would simplify things as it would open up two new...

Re: The proper use of WMD

Breaking down the available choices of WMD.

Re: Peace Activist Etiquette

I'm still getting a bit of a giggle out of the "protestor" who was outside the Federal Courthouse in Tacoma yesterday. (Sunday, 30 March). He was chanting some silly thing about, "The judges will...

Re: War Strategy

There's a very real possibility that the deployment of the additional divisions was held back out of concern for the situation in North Korea and the risk of escalation in Afghanistan. While the...

Re: So what if the U.S. uses WMD?

What does, "fair", have to do with it? It's a war. Warfare and Fairness are ludicrous to try to toss together. It's just a blind quirk of the psyche of the US population that restricts our actions to...

Re: So what if the U.S. uses WMD?

This is one of the traditional hypocrisies of warfare. It's not okay for the other guy to do it. Just as it's always best for the other guy to drop his grenade rather than throw it at you. If he does...

Re: What if Saddam uses WMD?

Re: What if Saddam uses WMD?

Why would the US have any interest in any sort of warehousing or merchanting of confiscated Iraqi arms? They're several generations out of date and a single M-16A2 will bring in approximately the...

Re: What if Saddam uses WMD?

Let's put it in more simplistic terms for you. They shoot at us, they get blown up, this is much better than any of our people getting shot or blown up. It's always better for the other guy to get...

Re: How would Jesus react?

Just did a quick check of public sources. Jesus isn't listed anywhere in either the Department of Defense or on staff to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. I'm guessing this makes it fairly irrelevant what...

Approved by the Joint Chiefs. Okay, what exactly was approved? An Implementation Study? A Feasability Study? Mission Tasking? Order of Battle? War Order? Operations Order?

Re: New Chomsky Interview: \"U.S. Is A Leading Terrorist Stat

Okay, I stand corrected. I worded things poorly. The CIA was the promulgating agency for Phoenix and it's offspring. The majority of the actual work was conducted by US Army Special Forces seconded...
