"Just happens to be an accurate description of exactly what they are."
No - it is an attempt to divert the argument away from what they do.
"It is just a gratuitous and nasty personal attack."
No it isn't - it is an accurate reproduction of what you wrote and apparently what you believe - tell us you didn't and you don't. Aren't you drifting threads again?
Sorry Don - none of what you wrote explains or excuses the torture, the concentration camps, the horrific weapons used mainly on third-world peasants........
The departure of bin Laden doesn't worry me one bit; the manner of his going and the effect it is having and will continue to have on the Middle East and the effect of American policy on the safety and the well-being of the world does. If that makes me "a piece of work" I'll live with that, and so, I'm sure, will those of us who are appalled at the US's continued gung-ho diplomacy in an extremely dangerous situation largely of its own creation.
Even our military experts have said that the Middle East situation cannot be solved militarily, and I believe that cutting yet another head off the Hydra has already produced at least one more - hearts and minds have to be more effective than body bags; surely that's obvious?
"you can only bluster."
Rings a little hollow from someone whose most significant contribution to this thread to date has been that he once played an ugly sister in a pantomime Mike.
