Response to David Zephyr (Original post)

34. What a wonderful read!!!

It is one thing to criticize, and to firmly believe that those one disagrees with (Obama, Hagel, Kerry, in this instance) are wrong in their decision-making, and to express that view on a political message board.

It is quite another thing, however, to always feel compelled to attach some evil, nefarious motives to those you think to be wrong-headed in their statements and/or actions. For some, it is not enough to say that these three men are thinking in what they perceive to be the wrong direction; it is also necessary to paint them as blood-thirsty warmongers who are owned by the 1%, pawns of the MIC, part of the PNAC Cabal - and so it goes.

What too many people here miss is the fact that the minute they indulge in the latter, they have already lost the argument.

- Came back to add: This is one of the finest pieces of writing I have seen here in a very long time. A very heartfelt K&R.
