Bartles Re: CDC guilty of correlation == causation (291 comments)

Wheat gluten is not the problem, unless you fall for fads. Its the carbohydrates not the protein in wheat that makes us fat.

The "plane guy" quoted from the communist manifesto in his suicide note. The tea party didn't start until 2009. Try again.

Republicans aren't in power. Barack Obama wanted the responsibility, you people foolishly gave it to him. He asked for it, he got it, he made the decisions, it's his mess. Deal with it.

There's a whole lot more than two points in that resolution, buddy.

You could have looked that up yourself. I'm going to assume you haven't read this before.

Iraq War resolution

Of course you can continue to believe it was because of WMD's and Halliburton if you want.

Could Tech Have Stopped ISIS From Using Our Own Heavy Weapons Against Us?

Bartles Re:QUESTION? (448 comments)

Destroying the "great evil" that was Saddam landed us with ISIS, going off half cocked with ISIS will create what. There will be no "and the great Satan was destroyed. The end." because people will still be living after you declare victory and a power vaccum will exist. A long term solution is not to meet them with force, but to weaken their powerbase. However this is hard and requires forethought and planning where as dropping bombs makes it look like you're Doing Something(TM) now. Screw what might happen in the future.

No, leaving Iraq prematurely is what fueled ISIS. A long term solution would have been to do exactly what we did in Germany, Korea, and Japan. There's a lot of things I'd like to say in response to your other points, but frankly I don't have the time or will to do it on Slashdot. I just don't care that much.

If Republicans had acted like today's Democrats in WW2, the Allies would have been defeated. As to your other bullshit, I can't believe you spent that much time on a slashdot post. Extract all the opinion and insert actual facts, and you may have something that approaches reality.

Did you even read those "articles"? They said he met with a moderate faction of the FSA whose leader was later forced out and the group then disbanded.

Could Tech Have Stopped ISIS From Using Our Own Heavy Weapons Against Us?

Bartles Re:Like DRM? (448 comments)

I haven't. We have volunteer armed forces in this country. Every member volunteers knowing that they might be ordered to serve in a conflict. I respect that every day. What I can never respect is a politician that votes to send them to war and then revokes that support when it becomes politically advantageous. Fuck every one of them, and every person that has ever voted for one.

I'm not surprised you opposed it, as it is clearly apparent that you are unable to formulate a position based on reality and logic.

No, I'm talking about the current pot smoking President who failed to secure a SOFA, with a draft-dodging Vice President, two Secretaries of State, and a Secretary of Defense, who all voted for the Iraq war. Shut up you fucking idiot.

I educated myself and tried to educate others before I voted. I soon became tired of being called a racist. Therefor I did not cast a vote for the incompetent, vacant, and small man that now occupies the White House. I do not consider myself part of we. I will never consider myself part of the movement that continuously gives more power and influence to the federal government and refuses to hold it accountable when it does wrong.
