On “Too late for healing

@ CK MacLeod:
Geoffrey Britain. The guy who thinks, and repeats often, that Neville Chamberlain was a leftist.

"

@ CK MacLeod:Of course it's justified!
They put up a post from Gareth Porter and I said that he was a genocide denier, liar and flak for the Khmer Rouge.
What else could they do with an unreasonable animal such as myself.
I linked to his book about Cambodia
and mentioned his notorious denial of the Hue Massacre as well!

Since there is no way to deny that he said the stuff (which he repeated in front of the US Congress more than year after publication of the book),
and no way to defend his lies,
what else could they do but administer a severe rebuke to me?

@ CK MacLeod:
you won't today see any comments from me there that are not in my own threads. they're now being deleted by Monsieur Rick the administrator.

@ CK MacLeod:am presently up to my neck in the other set of insane bigots thinking that they're some sort of morally upright beings worthy of being called progressives. 24 or 48 hours ought to be sufficient for them to give up the pretense of allowing discussion.

one of the main socksuppers.

@ narciso:

I'll have you know that I may reluctantly attempt a civil conversation, but I miss having more people around spewing disgusting and not really sane nonsense.
It was good to see a brief reappearance from Howard.

those who turn children into living bombs, and those who empower them to do so. Imam Rauf is more on that side of the line

dammit, that's just horsehockey flambe and it don't just half-stink.

how the hell do you empower somebody to turn out suicide bombers, narc?
don't you have to act to help in some way, or to say it's a good idea ?
any evidence about Rauf?

what has Rauf done to help suicide bombers that you haven't?

@ narciso:
don't be imputing much honor or morality to Guiliani. it's a waste of energy.

"

@ CK MacLeod:
Rudy Guiliani's was just fine in not accepting that money and accepting the money would not have been.

There's no reason to link that with building Corboda House and Zoltan shouldn't be attempting to equate the two things.

On ““Accessory to 9/11” – the Other(‘s) 9/11 Truth

@ narciso:
narc, far from imposing democracy, we're paying the tab that keeps the present Egyptian government going.
Should we continue or should we use our purse and pull the strings toward another movement?

"

@ narciso:
not sure that I understand your reply, narc. would you suggest that the US is best served by continuation of support for the repressive regime in Egypt or would you consider that we might devote our considerable investment there in some other that might lead to something better for us 20-30 years down the road?

"

@ narciso:

why does it have to be an improvement? why can't Egypt have whatever type of sweathog government that it elects?
what the hell does the US gain by supporting Mubarak or by helping him install his chosen successor?

In the history of this world, narc, what does your reading inform you to be the benefit of repression?

If you were guiding the US, what would you suggest we do to in Egypt to maximize our interests and shape Egyptian society ?

On “The Horror, The Horror

@ narciso:

"regardless" is the explanation?

not to notice the Anbar awakening

?

From the Columbia Journalism Review.....

It was the proto-blogger Spencer Ackerman who, yesterday evening, first identified McCain’s error. The Colonel MacFarland to whom McCain referred in the Couric interview “is now a one-star general, and his name is Sean MacFarland,” Ackerman writes. “He was commander of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, based in Ramadi in 2006 and early 2007 and is a key figure in embracing the Anbar Awakening before it even had that name.”

Ackerman goes on to quote MacFarland’s explanation of the surge, which he gave in a press conference to Pam Hess, then of UPI, on September 29, 2006—which was, Ackerman notes, “at least two months before Bush decided upon the surge, and about three before he announced it to the public”:

Ackerman in particular, was one of those who spread the ‘civil war’ meme about
Iraq, that had it been taken seriously, would have handed AQ a huge
prize

you know, narc, that seems to be about entirely untrue, IIRC.

my first comments on the internet were sent to Spencer Ackerman and were in rebuttal to his claim that the greatest threat to Iraqi re-integration was posed by Mookie al-Sadr.

could you explain a bit?

Rather than a continued screwing with the rule and saying some laudatory thing, tempting as that is, about this post.....

I'll go with

The very fact that he would refer to the eventual expulsion of the Muslims from Spain as “overthrow[-ing] the Islamic yoke” tells you that you are dealing with an ideologue: By the time the Reconquista was finished, Muslim control of the Iberian Peninsula had already been reduced to a small southern pocket.

is a really, really tiny bit of business and might have well been foregone.

( It serves to help set up, but you've style enough )

I'll never stop saying..... you butt sore.

@ Howard Portnoy:

Fuster, not a clue what you meant in #24.

Yes, Howard, yes.

@ CK MacLeod:
his stuff is trivial, judging from the stuff in the Cincy slideshow, but the narc argument that he should know better than to attempt to inflict artworks contrary to the colorful Cincyzenry's sensibilities is zilly

narciso wrote:

the thread’s line is misplaced, the matter concerns what are the obligation of an artist vs. the audience.

I agree sincerely and without reservation with that.

It it the duty of an artist to exhibit work that will not challenge the opinions of the probable audience and will offer offense to none?

Or does artistic duty lead in the opposite direction?

It should never incite or excuse violence. The Cincinnati murals do both.

It's all of a piece.
