Re: Standard Deviations (Robert Wright & Jonah Goldberg)

I don't think there is a danger of sharia law being implemented as it is in Britain, but we have gone so hog wild for multiculturalism I can foresee a problem where Sharia Courts are recognized as...

Re: Communitas: The Great Divergence (Timothy Noah & Mickey Kaus)

So much to address but I'll limit myself to the preposterous comments on immigration. To paraphrase Groucho, who are you going to believe, high fallutin economists or your lying eyes. Maybe...

Re: When Bobs Collide (Robert Wright & Robert Kagan)

Even Kagan has forgotten the original justification for the war. The most succinct explanation was given by Paul Wolfowitz: in a post 911 world we could not continue to tolerate state support of...

Re: Chatterboxing

I'm surprised you mentioned the 1993 WTC attack - most on the left have shoved that incident down the memory hole due to the inconvenient part about Iraq giving refuge to the bail jumpers.

Re: Miss Alaska

Part of my employment responsibilities is auditing nursing homes. Bed sores that do not break the skin are commonly known as boils.

Re: Miss Alaska

As for Bob's slam at McCain for wanting to send ground troops to Serbia -- I think you should agree with McCain's calculus instead of deriding it. Slick Willie focus grouped the issue and decided...

Re: Immigration Nation

What a shame - my first BHtv in quite a while and this woman has to bulldoze the conversation. Please have Mr. K back with a more civil partner, it's an important topic. Why not Mickey, he loves...

Re: The Uninvited Guest

"Oh, come on. You can't be serious, trying to blame Saddam for the deaths caused by the sanctions? I'm sure he exacerbated the problem, but it's ridiculous to say he caused it." - TwinSwords

Let me address your comments in reverse order:

Re: The Uninvited Guest

TwinSwords,

"To start with, he never mentioned Saddam, never claimed he was misunderstood, never said he had done nothing wrong, and never said he was a victim. In this segment, he didn't even...

Re: The Uninvited Guest

Again our recollections differ - in my recollection support for the war in the US was strong and was not dependent on the WMD argument. WMDs were emphasised to appease Tony Blair as the most salable...

Re: The Uninvited Guest

Yes thank you, that is the quote I was referring to, and I respectfully dispute your contention that I'm misrepresenting what Bob said. He asked what was intolerable about what Saddam was doing at...

Re: The Uninvited Guest

Au contraire. I like Bob Wright a lot, but his opinion on the war was stupid and beneath contempt. Around the 28:50 mark [can't get the hang of this dinglelink thing] he asks, so what was so bad...
