Teribus--

Thanks for yet another meaningless list. But I have to say, you are getting just the tiniest bit boring. And it's interesting that more and more prominent people agree with me--and, sad to say, not with you.

Latest one: Negroponte. WSJ 3 Dec 2007:

"Negroponte called on Iraqi leaders to take advantage of security gains by passing laws aimed at promoting political reconciliation."

Why, there's that pesky word again: "reconciliation". Sure is amazing you seem to have not heard of it. Most sentient beings--such a shame it does not seem to include you-- are well aware that political reconciliation--and nothing else--was the goal of the "surge".

Wonder what hole you've been living in, to have missed this.

Perhaps it's since you're still living in 1945--when everything was simple enough so you could understand it. It's really too bad, I suppose, that all Sunnis are not "the equivalent of hardcore Nazis in 1945"--then you'd be able to make sense.



Homey--

Thanks for your information on sarcasm--don't know how we've lived so long without knowing it. I want you to know we all appreciate your gallant attempts to keep the Mudcat readership abreast of such burning issues. Did you have a reason for posting? I'm sure nobody here would ever indulge in the low form of humor known as sarcasm . But please let us know if you ever believe that anybody on Mudcat is implicated in such a thing.

And when you've finished dealing with that earth-shattering topic, perhaps you can find time to actually answer the question your lord and master, Teribus, is too busy compiling useless lists to answer:   Was "national reconciliation" the goal of the "surge" in Iraq? Yes or no?

I also want you to know how sorry I am that I said: "You must be taking lessons from Teribus on not reading what you yourself write".

Obviously I should have said: "You must be taking lessons from Teribus on not reading what you yourself post."

Please accept my humble apologies.
