      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Report: U.S. Finds Missiles with Chemical Weapons

Recommended Posts

Let's see if I can sum up this thread:

 

Mtnchoad started by saying: "Blah blah blah, blah blah blah."

Iian responded with his own "Blah blah"

Off White then said, "Blah blah blah blah"

Trask then piped in as himself, no pretense.

Then, JGowans chimed in with "Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah"

Sphinx, EternalX, and many others rapped at the door with a "blah" or two of their own.

before RobBob took over the reins with a "blah blah blah" of his own.

This spurred Dru to offer the Canadian perspective: "Blah blah blah"

To which j_b retorted "blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah."

Captain Caveman had some fun too. I don't want to repeat it here because....ah, what the hey!, he said, of all things, "Blah blah blah blah blah"

Jim then crept up to and then leapt onto the soapbox and swiped the virtual mike to say, "blah blah blah and a blah blah blah"

After this it was:

Gowans: "blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blahblah blah blah blah blah blah blah"

Fence Sitter: "blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah"

Gowans: "blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah"

Fence Sitter: "blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blahh blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah"

Ad infinatum...until Allison said, "I hate Bush!"

Then AlpineK said "beer beer beer"

Then Klenke said, "blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah"

 

The End? Probably not.

I really hope those complaining about this war being "about oil" plan on riding their bike or walking to their next climbing adventure...

No way. Their using oil for travel to the mountains, or on jets, or polypro, or other goodies, is A OK. It's those darned other people who want what the complainers don't like that are the problem. cantfocus.gif

Oh, and to drag things back to the original topic here, the apparently non-existent smoking gun nerve gas missles, I think its time you own up and do what you wanted others to do MtnGoat. Here's your snack...

Still a little premature on the crow-eating-thing, OW. Hell, the dust hasn't even settled yet. That cheif (German educated) Iraqi scientist they just took into custody is gonna sing like a ....crow. (Once we pay him $$$, oops, I meant euros! and give him immunity from war-crimes prosecution)

 

Hey, did you kill that poor bird? You don't want those ALF kooks knocking your door in!

Yah, I know Fairweather, jury is still out, but MtnGoat was so quick off the line with the missle news, and the eating crow idea was so appealling (well, in a sick kind of way) that I just couldn't resist. Its entirely possible I'll get my very own spoonful of the dead avian, its just one of those things that goes with having an opinion.

I find it very interesting that MtnGoat portrays himself as such a reasoning sceptic when it comes to global warming yet he jumps on the, "we found chemical weapons," bandwagon at the very first report of a possible find. yellaf.gifwazzup.gif

"Oh pish MtnGoat, your position is like saying if you oppose exploitive child labor don't wear sneakers. "

 

If the sneakers are made by child labor, then yes, I expect you to live up to your opposition without waiting for someone else to do it for you.

 

If your sneakers are made by child labor, and you oppose child labor, it's OK to buy them anyway? Someone who thinks child labor should be banned so they can't buy the sneakers made by child labor, doesn't need to bother not buying them on their own? Why is it it's OK not to take action on your own without waiting for someone else to do something about it?

 

Your feelings about your morality are more important than your actual actions in service of it?

 

If you're upset about other people using oil in ways you don't like, don't expect what your personal uses to go uncritiqued.

MtnGoat, the issue isn't about how people use oil, but about how multinational corporations aquire it. This is not affectable on the absurd retail level policy development you advocate. You don't really believe in it anyway, otherwise your tack on Iraq would be different. Hey, you don't have to buy anything Iraqi, but I don't think its fair for whiners like you to deprive me of my choice to support the Baath party. Given that NO CREDIBLE THREAT has yet to be found with regards to Iraq, how can you deprive the Iraqi people to determine what government they will live under? If they didn't like Saddam Hussein, all they had to do was not buy it.

 

The child labor thing was just an analogy. It follows if you oppose child exploitation, it doesn't make you a hypocrite if you wear clothes and shoes. If you oppose invasion of other countries for control of oil, it doesn't make you a hypocrite to drive to the mountains.

 

Of course, this doesn't mean I endorse the "its all about oil" position. Taking control of the huge oil resource in Iraq is merely a side benefit, much like liberation. I'm of the "its all about empire" position and I think the developing posture towards Syria supports that concept.

It's not like you have to take the extreme on everything to make a point. If you used a car to get to the mountains once in awhile but did not use the car for day-to-day stuff like commuting, I think you stand on some moral ground to make the claim. I bet if everyone who could ride a bike to work everyday did, we would go a long way towards reducing our mideast dependence.

Barzan Hasan, like his brother Watban, was seen as a major catch because of the likelihood he could provide information on Saddam’s suspected weapons of mass destruction program, one of the major reasons the United States and Great Britain launched the war.

So far coalition forces have not found any certain evidence that those weapons still exist in Iraq.

ack you're reviving this thing? I maintain that chem weapons will be found but not in the quantity that would justify the past few weeks' events. finding any amount would violate sanctions, but if going against un mandates leads to this result, the united states would be a smoking crater

Bush did the right thing for the wrong reason. He's crooked. But I'm glad the iraqi people and the whole mideast has been liberated from Saddm.

i was having this discussion w/someone last night. i think that bush et al. are hoping that we'll forget that the stated reason for being there was wmd and just be happy that we liberated the iraqis, false pretenses or not. but then again, i think that's what a lot of people figured was happening all along.
