      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!

Do you think we will have to go back? Do you think that Iran will force its hand into Iraqi politics? Will they try to force Iraqs hand militarily?

 

Ever read Tom Clancy? He wrote about an airliner terrorist attack, then Iran invading Iraq to form a larger Islamic Nation, then we go in there and tear shit up. (we went in early in reality and bungled it hardcore, in reality)

 

He also wrote about China invading Russia, but that is a whole nother thread...

I'm pulling for a cabinet post appointment for Tom Clancy under a McCain administration.

As compared to a Harvard graduate 'conditioned to not react above their monetary ranking' , who surrender their intellect to a torpid community of intellectuals who have never left the hallways of power they shine with their asses?

Nice. Now again, why would I ask someone who's "not paid to think above their pay-grade", trained to follow orders without question, willingly accepts their role as a tool of the State, and surrenders their intellect and identity to the chain of command anything about matters of policy?

 

Uhm... you aren't; He's asking you. Try to keep up.

They may be less likely to support an aggressive military response, Serenity, but I bet that torpid community of intellectuals will be a lot more likely to grasp your arguments about our relationship with the Saudi's than most Americans.

Oddly Harvard intellectuals pull the strings on the Right as well as the Left.

The only odd thing about that is the degree to which people such as Serenity hold them in such low esteem. That was part of chief chimpy's attraction as a presidential candidate - the guy you'd rather have at your barbeque than smartypants Al Bore - and look what we got? A moron.

Just because he went to those places doesn't make him an intellectual. He was in the National Guard, too, and that didn't make him a soldier.

I don't think this debate is ready for that level of subtlety.

Do you ever tire of taking nearly every discussion and turning it into a parade of personal insult and profanity?
