Re: Find Your Posse (Christopher Hayes & Reihan Salam)

Re: objection, your honor

Re: Just a reminder

Dude, read the reports from the IAEA - THERE WAS NO WMD OR NUCLEAR CAPABILITY! AND THAT WAS CONFIRMED BY USA INTELLIGENCE REPORTS BEFORE WAR STARTED!!

Re: Israel needs to be larger to survive Iran nuke attack

Wasn't that what basically happened when Israel was created 61 years ago????

Re: Worldwise: Failed States (Pauline Baker & Chris Preble)

Interesting to hear Chris state that one of the main reasons behind Iraq invasion was the humanitarian issues with Sadam Hussien.

At the time of the war, I was studying Ethics and Industrial...

Re: Bob's comments monovlog - 4/24/09

Ello All,

Just having a quick watch between piles of paperwork @ home (so much for leaving it at work!).

Just thought I would cast my vote - Frasier is definitely cuter with long hair (sorry...

Re: Worldwise: Iran and the Bomb (Jacqueline Shire & Richard Parker)

Given the reluctance of the previous administration, and the current economic crisis which has apparently put investigating the torture memos on the back burner, is there anyone in the US willing to...

Re: UN Plaza: Horse Trading (Mark Leon Goldberg & Matthew Lee)

Thanks for the Economist link - I gave up trying to follow Matt's side of the conversation.

Your right though - Goldberg desrves at least 1 award for his content (and trying to make some sense of...

Re: Bobtopia vs. Pinkestan (Robert Wright & James Pinkerton)

You seem like a knowledgeable person, but obviously are unwilling to listen to another side of an argument (I am basing this on your reply to Wonderments comments below).

In a final response to...

Re: UN Plaza: Horse Trading (Mark Leon Goldberg & Matthew Lee)

The audio was so horrible on this, it made normal technical problems (diavlog constantly freezing) seem good! Why was this one so sucky?

Re: Bobtopia vs. Pinkestan (Robert Wright & James Pinkerton)

1) If the only people you are worried about deterring are the russians, then I suggest you move on from the cold war and catch up with the world post 1980. Your biggest threat is groups/nations inthe...

Re: Bobtopia vs. Pinkestan (Robert Wright & James Pinkerton)

As a die-hard New Zealander, and strong anti-nuclear/WMD supporter, and would love to argue this point with you. However, since I can see your side of the argument (and it does have merit), I shall...

Re: Bobtopia vs. Pinkestan (Robert Wright & James Pinkerton)

Another point:

James - your whole zero-sum game argument about missile defence (how you desperately needed the missile defense scheme because everyone has or is going to get nukes) makes me proud...

Re: Bobtopia vs. Pinkestan (Robert Wright & James Pinkerton)

I hate to say it, but in this diavlog, James comes off as a child who has been told no, and can't accept the fact.

If James stopped and listened to himself for just 3 minutes (the 3 minutes at the...
