    you’re not providing one

    That’s because I don’t want to provide one! I was asking TBogg a question. Jesus, there’s some really high grade neutronium around here, along with the creative writing lessons and motive divination.

    hide behind the word “might”

    Well of course that’s what I was doing. Your ability to sniff out hidden agendas is only matched by the quality of your writing tips.

    Christ, I would never claim to be a good writer, but it’s great that you’re providing lessons for free.

    everybody gets to play in the sandbox

    Of course! And I get to tell you I didn’t ask you the question! Give and take, sunshine. Makes the world, and silly subthreads, go round.

    The only information in this thread was from meepmeep09′s post about the Yemeni drones, and the link I provided to a (pro-drone) Pakistani study of the Waziristan situation. F-18s would be worse than drones, but what on earth does that have to do with the question I asked? It’s almost as though some of you are looking for an argument. Gasp. Must be a dearth of progressives since last Tuesday.

    Do you understand what “might” means?

    What agenda do I have? I don’t want a rebuttal, because I don’t honestly know whether drones are achieving anything positive. I was asking TBogg why he supports drone attacks. Your reply had nothing to do with my question, which wasn’t even directed at you.

    I suppose when you’re a bag of hammers, everything looks like a sparkle pony nail.

    Chris, I have no desire to make you a liar. You’re a good guy, and we’ve always got on well in past exchanges (under my other nym), but you’re a bit hasty here.

    Why don’t YOU spell out your arguments for why they (among all possible other weapons) do more harm than good?

    I don’t have a particular insight, and I don’t know that they do more harm than good. The most convincing argument for the drones is articles like this. It is more than three years old, and I don’t know (but will keep looking) whether those perceptions have changed.

    But it would be nice to hear from Americans who support their use, why they do, apart from the usual “life is messy” weak tea. I’m not pointing fingers, just asking a question.

    Not sure what you mean by archives, unless you mean the search facility at the top right, which allows me to wade through pages upon pages of the usual crap. It did come up with this from TBogg;

    a system of drones devoted to taking out terrorists and terrorist training camps is infinitely preferable to boots on the ground and more American military deaths

    which is a statement of preference assuming only the two options, so there is that. Having picked that out of the “archives”, I guess I can take it as definitive.

    Do you have to see convincing arguments for the use of every weapons system ever deployed?

    No, just the ones which might actually be doing more harm than good to the West’s long term goals. Not sure what this has to do with travy or Jill Stein. Or you for that matter. Just wondering whether anyone has a solid argument for them, other than the usual bollocks you just served up.

    I don’t come here often enough to have seen a convincing argument for the use of drones, so if you don’t mind explaining again, I’d love to hear one.

    Note to the Sparkle Pony Watch; this is not a set-up for an anti-Obama rant, but a genuine policy question.

    The reflexive hate and distrust of the president among right wingers borders upon pathology.

    Borders upon? Man, they cleared customs years ago.

    Luckily for the Dems, Obama never received a daily brief titled “Al Qaeda Determined To Strike in Benghazi”. That would be catastrophic.

    I don’t think there’s much to worry about. It’s early days, Obama will do better in the other two formats, and worst case, some of (the few) undecided voters have been charmed (for some inexplicable reason) by Romney’s glib dissembling. Among the decided, the Rs are orgasmic and a lot of the Ds are unnecessarily despondent. All for nought, but at least the wingers have had a few days of joy to come crashing down from. That’ll be fun.

  • Who’s Betty? I usually save my feeble jokes for Roy’s place (under another nym). I drop by TBogg’s (and LGM) when I have time, and that’s about it. When my crappy job finally ends and I get my golden parachute (more of a tattered brolly), I’ll have much more time to spend here. Lucky you!

  • Well, I thought it was interesting rather than funny, but as for the rest, I think you’re labouring under a misapprehension of some sort. I’ve always been a staunch supporter of impurity in all its forms. That includes occasionally poking people who rattle on about “sparkle ponies” for some reason.

  • I remember the 2008 Romney being a lot looser and sharper

    Funny, I read the same thing about pre-2000 Dubya.

    Obama’s economic policies are destroying our First World status.

    That’s OK, because most of the rest of the First World has even worse policies, although not as bad as Mitt’s. So we’ll all go down together, singing “Nearer My Dog To Thee”.
