In some ways this civil war (or uncivil war if you prefer) is harder to win than North vs South. Lincoln might not be a bad comparison. If he (we) continues to win.
"I don't know how many I speak for ..." Works for me. FTR if anyone says you're any kind of cheerleader they're probably smoking ditchweed.
The accusation of impure motive has become the new accusation of witchcraft.

This comment from Althouse that Jimmyk quoted a few pages ago is along the lines of something i was trying to write earlier ...For the first time, seemingly ever, the Court has decided that an otherwise constitutional act, taken by someone constitutionally permitted to take it, for a constitutionally-valid reason, can nevertheless be held for additional scrutiny and/or stopped because the Court decides the actor's stated (valid) reasons for taking the action may not be the actor's true reasons.I was going to add that this effectively destroys "government of laws and not of men".

"Can you list a couple ..." Seems pretty clear given the incomplete and unreliable nature of known facts that there are certainly more than 1 single valid inference.

Yes it is.

So snark is a "personal attack"? Maybe we need pass a JOM Law against snark now.

My personal position is sorta consistent with: "better 10 guilty go free than 1 innocent go to prison". I certainly hope "10 guilty go free" isn't going to destroy Western civilization all by itself.

"standing assumption is that every single one of the plotters gets off ..." It would be one thing if the position was consistent with "expect the worst but welcome being wrong". However that seems inconsistent with continuing expressions along the lines ... "Fugetabout, never gonna happen" "Dream on Pollyanna" "You need to bring yourself around to the sad sad truth, the dirty lowdown"I mean some might take repetition to be something like ... oh maybe ... condescension?

"Maybe Boris has some advice ..." I'll pass TK. Maybe if you're ever the obnoxious kid I can try.
"... aggravating about Tom R is the arrogance and condescension ..." Understandable, but I notice, like high school, the cool kids get away with it. The obnoxious kid, not so much.

If Rooskies want their credit from us, from me ... they can get it but not yet.

JiB, no I am not suggesting that. It was in our interest in supplying them with material and supplies that they contribute. Since they turned on us as soon as it was over, which was my point, in retrospect, stiffing them out of a piece of the pie would have been justified. We could-a and we should-a ... Never ever trust a commie ...

"They have a point" After the Berlin wall and the Berlin airlift ... not so much. Still doing whatever they can to mess around ... not so much. Maybe someday, but for now ... not so much.

Forcing false confessions is not "being thorough".

My dad, who flew the original Warthog (P47 Thunderbolt), in Europe then might have had a tilted POV but always claimed before the fall of Germany the allies held back to let the Rooskies catch up.
