HOW ABOUT POSTING UNDER ONE NAME?

What's the problem? This would be considered a violation of the terms of service of most forums I know of. I can't even find a TOS on this forum.

At any rate, it is just wrong. Pick a name. Stop using the other one. Delete the old one.

I don't mind talking to myself. I don't even mind arguing with myself. But when I start to lose the arguments, that's when I get concerned.

Geez newbooboobearguy, you rant and rant and rant about how all these complex problems in the world are not getting fixed to your satisfaction, certain political leaders are imbeciles, and on and on and on and on....

but you can't seem to manage a simple account and password profile? Sorry, does not do much for your credibility to comment on complex issues.

(yes, I guess I'm feeling surly today, but I've suffered through enough of this bear/guys proclamations....).

Maybe because I have never done a darn thing to get banned. I am starting to see why the internet forum is such a waste of time. In addition I look at these idiotic posts about the two names the name calling that is thrown about uh are you people still in middle school.?

If you don't like things I post ignore me.

I agree with you if they do not like the things you post then they can ignore them or choose not to READ THEM.

This is how I answered them on the thread "Realpolitik - About Bush" (awhile back)

First of all I will not get into a word game with you or anyone else in these forums. We are all FREE to express or project any views or opinions that we choose to and as such I will exercise my right to do so. If you do not like my posts or what I have to say then DO NOT READ THEM.

I do not remember anyone appointing you a subject matter expect on what is BS and what is not BS. Just like beauty, BS is in the eye of the beholder and as such one should not be casting stones when one may be in the outhouse.

What I am seeing on all internet forums is a lack of freedom of speech. The same gung ho america here wants you to do things there way or you get these idiotic reponses. Look in the mirror garbage again like I said Middle school behavior. Then you hear the forums are private you must adhere to the rules. look I will say it again I never have caused any of the posters any harm. Maybe it is best to stop wasting m time here.

England, France, Israel, Russia, China, Pakistan, India, and North Korea. I only see one on the list now that concerns me.
and that's Israel.....right,

FYI England does not have nukes its the UK, the UK's Trident sub base is in Scotland, so maybe when Scotland votes for independence from the UK we'll have a fully tartan nuke.

On a more serious note I'm yet to be convinced that Iran will pursue nukes and a policy of engagement with all the powers in the middle east would be sensible. The US also needs to separate its foreign policy from the blind defense of Israel. The US should put its own interests first ,not Israel's as it does now.

I went to Iran in February for 4 days. It was seriously amazing, the people were amazingly friendly and I had no issues what so ever.

I was in Tehran for a day and then up into the mountains for some skiing. I haven't met friendlier people in the middle east. I constantly got asked where I was from and without hesitation I said American. People were extremely happy to see people (Americans) visit their country. The food, the service, the hospitality in general was excellent. I would definitely go back.

I've also found it's not Americans that others hate, but America. Frankly, I don't give much of a galdarn. I've never met people anywhere in the world who weren't just people, one on one.
