Downding for not linking directly to article but having to go through a blog to the actual article. The blog does not even comment on the article to get a unique perspective/critique to make it worth going to rather than going to the article directly.

Downdingend because even your critique is not original.

Once more you are pretending.

I suggest you downding everything I post.

I'd love to continue to highlight your obsessive behavior.

It is well that war is so terrible, otherwise we should grow too fond of it. - Robert E. Lee

War is a series of catastrophes followed by victory. - Georges Clemenceau

There is nothing as terrible as a battle lost, except a battle won. - Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington

More than an end to war, we want an end to the beginnings of all wars -- yes, an end to this brutal, inhuman, and thoroughly impractical method of settling the differences between governments. - FDR

I notice the author of the book was a student of John Keegan's, may he rest in peace. I read Professor Keegan's book A History of Warfare. He remarked at the end of it that we humans must find a way to limit warfare, as it was done through much of history. Otherwise we will end up as the people of Easter Island did; nearly extinct because of the tangata rima toto, the men with bloodied hands.

re: #2 researchok

What does linking it to the blog excerpt add to the article rather than linking it to the original?

re: #4 Destro

I have been posting here for years.

The readers of my blog have made it clear they do not want my editorializing.

I spend a fair amount time reading, finding and considering these articles and my readers know, understand appreciate that.

I do recall that was no problem the other day when you referred to my blog when you called me a proponent of war with Iran.

Do you recall the outcome of that charge?

I can remind you if you forgot.

re: #6 researchok

Yea, you are going to now claim you are not pro Iraq war? Defended getting Saddam out by war? And that you advocate attacking Iran in the same way?

In any case, I can see why no one wants to read your opinion on your blogs but in the future just link to the original article.

I actually would not mind seeing you editorialize on a news article - because that adds to discussion - I have to click twice from here to your blog then to the actual article itself to read it. And if you use a smart phone that is not a smooth transition.

re: #7 Destro

Sorry, but the pivot and attack won't work.

You claimed I was pro war on Iran.

I asked you to provide evidence of that.

You posted something from my blog, claimed it was my opinion and were proved to be a liar.

Take this further, please.

I will then post the links.

And I'm sure you must be exhausted from all that clicking.

As for no one reading my blog, response to my own writing suggests differently.

You are pro threatening Iran with war, how's that for a clarification?

re: #9 Destro

You are pro threatening Iran with war, how's that for a clarification?

Based on what evidence?

Where did I make my intentions known?

So far, all we have documented are your lies.

If the threat of war keeps the bigoted, racist and genocidal regime of Iran off balance, I'm all for it.

re: #11 Destro

Yes I stand by that.

I said If the threat of war....

Once more a lie. By you.

13 Destro  Fri, Sep 7, 2012 12:58:27pm

re: #12 researchok

So why did you deny that you are pro threatening Iran with war @ #10.

In any case link direct to news articles rather than to your blog.

More pivot and attack.

If the threat of war keeps the bigoted, racist and genocidal regime of Iran off balance, I'm all for it.

Because Iran has already made the threat of war and genocide their reality.

Consider Neda Soltan If Iran would do that o their own, I can only magine how they feel about killing Israelis and Jews. And consider Hashemi Rafsanjani endorsing the use of nuclear weapons against Israel

Obviously, you approve of that inasmuch as you have never distanced yourself from those ugly things to the best of my knowledge.

I wonder why that is?

And what exactly did the link at my site point to? Two opinion articles, embracing both sides of the debate.

Please, provide the link.

re: #14 researchok

You explained why you support those who want to threaten Iran with war but why did you deny it initially?

re: #15 Destro

Don't change the subject, liar.

Post the links you did earlier.

Here's the deal. From now on, I'm only going respond to you.

Say nothing directly to me, I will say nothing to you.

Reply and so will I- and yes, I will go back t your past remarks on different threads.

You are in control of your own destiny.
