Ah. There's the difference. I wasn't seeing my opinions disrespected, I was seeing disrespect directed at me. Good day.

And I shouldn't have to put up with insults and insinuations for what I have deduced from the facts available. Thank you very much - I spent twenty years in the Navy being a truth seeker. And I found out quite a bit, including how to analyze the noise in the system.

:D Oh, okay. I will say, then, that you are simply mistaken.

The information is available - I am not implying, someone else was implying that I was referring to classified information. All the information is available, I read the same things you do. I come to a completely different interpretation of the facts. I do NOT see lies. At least not from President Bush. No "purposeful deceit".

Period. You will disagree with me. Fine.

Interesting choice you give me there: gullible or privy to - and willing to give away - secrets. Of course there is no chance that two honest people can look at the same information and come to different conclusions.

Right. When were you in Iraq again? I won't be an internet ranger, making claims that can't be backed up - which is why I would offer to meet the editor - or someone - to show that I really exist, and explain my experiences in Iraq.

There was intelligence that seemed to be from multiple sources that we now know was a single source - Chalabi - but please enlighten me as to the last war we went into with perfect intelligence on the enemy's strengths, weaknesses, plans, and intentions before the war. There were lies, such as the French promises, and the Turks'. But the accusations above... ah, why bother. Hate all you want.

Against this crowd? Yes. I am a veteran. I served proudly. I have been attacked and accused of "turning tail". I would gladly sit down to lunch with the editor and explain my feelings on the subject; my facts are available anywhere, just as yours are. I happen to feel that my facts have more weight than yours; you are going to believe, no matter what I say, that yours have more than mine. But there is nothing I can say that will "prove" what I say is true, just as there is nothing you can say that will prove what you say is truth. Now you can continue attacking my opinions, it is a free country. You are welcome.

No, that's all right, thanks. I am tired of trying to convince people of the mistakes in their religious-level beliefs. And I DON'T care for people who accuse me of "turning tail".

The editor claimed to speak for our military veterans; he may speak for some, but he does not speak for me.

"Aichmophobia" is the term for an irrational fear of knives and sharp objects.
