re: 'American War Generals' a sobering reflection on U.S. failures in Iraq - Poodlebrain
[quote]Correct. It is a contest of wills. And you have to have a cause that people are willing to sacrifice for. Did we? I honestly doubt it.[/quote]I believe we had the will to win, but we limited our campaign to avoid the kind of criticism Israel routinely gets for civilian casualties. And of cou...

re: De La Salle (CA) vs Byrnes (SC) on ESPNU - Poodlebrain
When I was in high school De La Salle was the whipping boy of the public school right next door, Ygnacio Valley High School. Things began to change when YV lost about half its student body to a brand new school, Northgate High School, in the mid-1970s. DLS began to excel in the 1980s. I'm convi...

re: 'American War Generals' a sobering reflection on U.S. failures in Iraq - Poodlebrain
The American public and Congress act like war is simply a contest between two militaries. It is not. It is a life and death struggle between groups of people. We forget that, and we lose sight of the need to kill not only soldiers but everyone necessary to convince those opposed to us that war wi...

re: Sarah Palin: OH NO YOU DID'UNT - Poodlebrain
I think it's awesome. The family goes to a party before the Alaskan equivalent of a biker rally. One of the family members gets into an altercation, and the whole family bands together to support that family member. Honest to goodness down to Earth Americans. They ain't the Kennedys, that's for ...

re: Oklahoma prof offers insight into why Obama said ISIL is not Islamic - Poodlebrain
It makes so much sense that we should apply it retroactively to history. Think the Muslims will buy that the Crusaders weren't really Christians? It's not like killing innocents was a tenet of Christianity, right? How about we apply it to Mohammed? He wasn't killing all those people in the nam...

re: New Michael Brown shooting witnesses describe scene - Poodlebrain
[quote]Two men, shocked at what they saw, describe an unarmed teenager with his hands up in the air as he's gunned down by a police officer.[/quote]Did they really describe an unarmed teenager or an unarmed male? From their supposed vantage point how did they determine Michael Brown's age? I suspe...

re: 9/11 After 13 years - Poodlebrain
Just how many people are in on this international conspiracy? In order to perpetuate the cover up it requires new conspirators every day. Yet not one conspirator has come forward with tangible evidence and expressed remorse for participating in this enormous international conspiracy that has cost ...

re: D. C. 6th grade homework assignment. Let's hear the responses. - Poodlebrain
[quote]but on one hand I'm kind of impressed at the critical thinking that an exercise like this would cause 6th graders to employ. We never had these kinds of free form and conversation-inducing exercises until I was in college or grad school. Just wish the example was not retarded.[/quote]You ca...

re: ISIL isn't Islamic? - Poodlebrain
[quote]I didn't hear the speech. Did Obummer actually say that ISIL isn't Islamic? He actually used those words?[/quote]Yes, he did. But to put it into context you have to look at the paragraph the statement was part of rather than just the sentence.[quote]Now let's make two things clear: ISIL is...

re: New Michael Brown shooting witnesses describe scene - Poodlebrain
[quote]They didn't say he was shot in the back, just that Wilson shot AT him while he had his back turned and was running away. It's possible the shot he fired at him missed the target. [/quote]So Brown stopped running away while shots missed him, turned around and lowered his head to allow the fata...

re: Tax rules cause record number of Americans to renounce citizenship - Poodlebrain
Since when did being an American citizen become compulsory?
