Hey it’s great that you feel your own involvement on some level inside of Iraq gives you some superior insight but the reality is that there is a
lot more to war and life than one person’s perspective.
Double standards are double standards no matter what side of that line a person dwells upon.
Hypocrisy is hypocrisy no matter who signs your paycheck or what flag or banner a person wraps themselves in.
I haven’t seen anyone attack you on this thread. Here on ATS we debate critical issues that deviate from the party lines, political propagandas and
dogmas. We debate and sometimes assail one another’s contentions we don’t assail one another.
The issue isn’t about what you feeling people might be imagining about you when they have a differing opinion.
The issue isn’t about what you imagine other people to be who have a differing opinion or your estimation of them.
The issue is the subject matter, and in this case the subject matter is Iranians allegedly supplying the technology to hack U.S. unmanned drones.
People’s debates become effective when they effectively examine all angles of the issue while putting forth their own. People who imagine that there
is some hatred or biased against them just because their debates and contentions aren’t more widely accepted are really just attempting to use
emotional domination to deflect away from debate and stifle it.
Getting people to listen to one’s self becomes a bit more problematic and difficult when you don’t have a loaded gun in your hands leveled at
Clearly the ills of war are taking a tremendous toll on our soldiers and that in and of itself is something that diminishes us all.
You might want to try focusing more on the issues and less on the poster friend.
