Comparing DD214's? Really? That's your measure of a man? What about the intangibles? Sorry, I know...more questions you're not going to answer.

Bullshit.

Thanks Captain Obvious. You're being evasive. Why don't you answer my question? What is so hard about that?

Uncle Jimbo, Without any corroboration - nothing at all - why should we take your word for it? Michael Yon's expertise as an embedded combat journalist speaks for itself. I choose to believe Michael Yon. Lipo

Michael's word is good enough for me. The answer is yes.

Why should we believe anything you say? Where is the proof that what you say is true? If you don't want to reveal your sources, how about simply telling us what was said about Michael Yon and the reasons for the termination of his embed, instead of telling us who said it? Or should we simply take your word for it?

What is this common sense to which Jeffery refers but does not enumerate? That it is unwise to pointedly criticize Islam? Because it might cause offense or because it might spark a riot? I certainly see no reciprocity with respect to criticism of Christianity or Christians. Christians will not riot in the streets if a certain criticism, whether deserved or not, is offensive to their religious sensibilities. Why? Because violence in the name of religion is unreasonable. Perhaps Muslims might be offended by the Pope's remarks. Perhaps the Pope's remarks were meant to - or it was known in advance that they would be, offensive to Muslims. So what? That Islam is divorced from reason is plain. The Pope pointed this out. Jeffery's suggestion that perhaps the Pope should have said just that "...religion should never be used to justify violence" would likely have elicited precisely the same response. Lipo
