  •  Have you ever thought of therapy? (0+ / 0-)

    I've had good friends and lovers who were therapists, and they worked well with people who had issues with honesty, whether the manifestation of the problem was in lying to others or lying to themselves.  You clearly have issues with telling the truth.

    Your "only" in the sentence that begins the second paragraph, followed by "where we thought we could make a buck or extend our empire" is a travesty.  You are a liar, as I pointed out in the first reply to you that I made.  Let me repeat.  You are a liar.  By my second response to you, I was already acknowledging that anti-communism played a role, though I produced evidence and argument--which you have yet to do in a coherent form, just offering your opinions about a period of four decades without any support--to contend that imperial and 'make-a-buck' matters were paramount.

    To support your lie, after pontificating on the great insight of Blanchy, oh-he-who-knows-all-but-must-still lie-repeatedly, you lie again; we went back and forth about the homicide issue already.  To state so baldly and so falsely that I have "call(ed) our soldiers murderers" is a pitiful act.  Thus, you are not only a liar, but you are also pathetic.  

    Nonetheless, Vaya con Dios, kiddo.  Boy, I'd love to be in a panel discussion or debate with you in front of an audience of neutral truth-seekers.  I love to watch folks turn all red.  It's my favorite color.

    I bow to those who seek the truth; I flee from those who have 'found' it.

    •  I'm a liar. Sure. Run with that. (0+ / 0-)

      You STILL can't refute my point that we fought communism everywhere and Vietnam was just one more place.  

      You throw out that "anti-communism played a role" and then proceed to call our soldiers murderers as though the defense aspects were not at least as significant as any others.  You are the one that can't call a spade a spade or at least attempt to quantify how much emphasis you put on each one.  So this is what makes me a liar?  LOL.

      And I wasn't sure what you meant by scatological comments at first.  Then I figured out that you don't know the etymology of the word ass, my little wordsmith.  If you call someone an ass, you are referring to the animal and not the part of the human body.  

      •  You're not even an artful liar. (0+ / 0-)

        You ... proceed to call our soldiers murderers as though the defense aspects were not at least as significant as any others.

        You either need a reading course, or a bolt from the blue to introduce you to reality or the motivation to stop seeking to deceive others.  Too bad that you are so comfortable in your little bubble of self-deception.  The world can use intelligent people who are not deluded and insistent on advancing their delusions as reality.  

        As to the 'braying donkey' origins of ass, sure, I'm aware of them; in part Biblical, if I recollect rightly.  I misconstrued.  I'm always happy to acknowledge error.

        Good luck to you in your insular little world of lies, compadre.  Vaya con Dios.

        I bow to those who seek the truth; I flee from those who have 'found' it.

    •  You seem to think you ticked me off. (0+ / 0-)

      Enjoy your fantasy.  I really enjoyed watching you clothe your lack of an argument in fancy prose, but when all the dust cleared you STILL can't refute my very basic hypothesis.

      •  I not only refuted your measly excuse... (0+ / 0-)

        ...for an argument, I developed an essay that expanded and launched that argument further.  You, on the other hand, have yet to produce any evidence other than your truly pathetic ideological imprecations against Reds.  

        "Lions and Tigers and Commies, Oh My!' does not an argument make, though I suppose it barely passes muster as premise and presumption, so it is hypothetical, and refutable, which is what I have done over the course of this thread.

        Of course, this is all opinion.  But I'd bet that if we did a poll among university history professors, both of us would receive stern critique--that's what scholars do--but that I at least would be given credit for advancing an argument, something that you have yet to do in any other than the form of an assertion that you know the truth about the evils of Communism.

        Good luck making peace with your maker with that line.

        I bow to those who seek the truth; I flee from those who have 'found' it.
