I think it should stop the war on terror, yes. I think we are just making things worse.

But what does that have to do with the idea that War is profitable??

OP is struggling with English . It's a amazing language in that it has the ability to be quite precise yet at the same time so vague as to render it a curse . That is the rhetoric game that lawyers as well as politicians become masters of . OP thinks that most in this thread disagree with him at the same time as we do agree with him ...quite the conundrum I would say .

Is that what the problem is??? Thanks for the tip because I was starting to get a "Eff You Buddy" thing boiling up in me the more we talked. I actually agree with him in the op but at first we weren't even talking about that which made it even worse. I was just trying to show him why people say "War is profitable", which it is for some people. Profit for some doesn't mean it's good for everyone. But anyway.....thanks for the heads up..

I agree we should stop the war on terror. What did your first reply have to do with my opinion that we should drop the war on terror?

Not that it couldn't be dropped, not that they were mitigating reasons for not being dropped it was solely my opinion that it should be dropped.

If you say so.

Yet only one person has agreed that the war should be dropped. Everyone else localized their selves to one portion of my opinion.


Just a question for you. Are you also aware that thoughts are supposed to be broken up with paragraphs in the English language?

My first reply didn't have to do with that question at all. I was just trying to show why people say War is profitable while at the same time it's responsible for increasing debt. You seemed to think that it didn't make sense that it could do both at the same time but it can. It can break down the nation as a whole and be a burden on the people while at the same time make private business and certain people very rich.

No I said it was a canned reply that has been repeated over and over and over on this site. I've heard it already I don't agree with it.

That should be the end of our discussion right there. Apparently you took umbrage that I did not agree with your opinion and felt the need to distract from the main point of the OP because of your supposed indignation.

Well, no actually what I wanted is that if you disagree, fine, but show me why. Give me a counter example or something telling my why it is that you don't agree.

Just telling me, "Meh, your wrong" isn't anything. You neither disprove what I've said nor prove anything yourself. You're just telling me I'm wrong and walking away. If that's all you can do then just don't say anything. Or show me your side. Don't just say I'm wrong and expect me to accept it. Have your own side to present if you don't like mine.

And you did that all the while ignoring a change of opinion on my part, because I admitted that people on these forms have changed my opinion. (in case you still don't get it read the whole OP don't just react to the title )

So basically another post I sent to you was accurate. You could not have cared one bit about what was in the OP you were just looking for a argument on the merits of the military industrial complex.


But by all means don't find comfort that the points so many of you express has finally swayed my opinion. Just look for another reason to argue .

No, I'm not trying to argue. Yes I agree with your op. I'm thrilled that people here have changed your opinion. It fills me with a warm and fuzzy feeling from head to toe. Is that better???

Just forget it. You seem to want to argue with me for some reason. I don't care to argue with you. Go ahead and believe that War isn't profitable if you want. Or whatever the hell your position is. I don't care anymore.

For some reason I do not find that quote sincere. It seems more like immaturity when finally recognizing the point of the OP and shame.

it's too late to just quit now because once you draw the sword you become an enemy forever, quitting means death in the end.
why do you think ancient nations used genocide so often? because they knew that once you use violence the survivors will eventually come after you and destroy you even after centuries of time have passed.

I agree with you my friend, I would also like to see the war on drugs abandoned. I do think we need a to see a "War on ignorance in the US".

You sure are being a dick for someone that's in agreement with your topic. But you're right, I'm not sincere about how I feel. I don't care. The fact that you simply must be an jerk even when I'm in agreement with you makes me want to argue with you out of spite however, but I'm not going to waste my time.

You still haven't offered up anything to counter anything I've said in regard to War Profiteering either and until you do there is nothing more for us to talk about.

It's funny how you always take someone else's thread and make it all about you. You need to relax and let others have their say it's getting kind of old to have your comments end every thread.

Well, you seem to be the one who can't stop talking about me so maybe it's your problem and not mine.

BTW, I don't give a f*ck what you like and don't like. Don't like my comments don't read them.

So that's what he's all about? I'd have to lie to you if I did not tell you that your opinion had crossed my mind.
