    So it's bad now?
    I thought it was "outsourcing?"

    Watching her husband play basketball in England should be punishment enuff.

    She's VERY cute!

    Her name was in reply to 1911sforever's comment, "Journalists, or terrorist propaganda officers captured in Iraq?" I would assume anyone doing real reporting in Iraq instead of parroting the Admin's daily talking points would be considered a terrorist propaganda officer. Particularly for CBS news.

    Oh! I thought you were responding with an example of one of the "journalists" we're holding in Iraq. My mistake.

    Because he doesn't like the U.S. So we should attack someones intelligence instead of debate the issue? (I actually think he has stated that this isn't quite true.)

    Than you agree that it is 'kind of' an attack? And if so, what does it do for the debate?

    I'm so glad you sent us her bio!

    From the link you sent:

    Her other 60 Minutes II reports include an interview with the King of Swaziland, who was being sued by the mother of a girl who was forced to become his 10th wife, and a report on legalized assisted suicide in Switzerland.
    So Clulup, let's discuss how your country has legalized murder. Or is that subject not anti-US enough for you to have an opinion? I guess it would only be murder if it was taking place in US hospices, since it's in the Land of Cheese, it serves a benevolent purpose, I'm sure.

    Hmm, given that the U.S. is number 6 on the list, maybe we shouldn't buy any U.S. made products for Christmas, either?

    I dont mean to correct you, but I believe that it's offically called The Land of Cheese and Watches.

    No, I don't agree that it is a "kind of" attack either.

    There is no debate. daThomas introduced a seemingly benign thread asking us to boycott Chinese goods because of an article he found. An interesting thread was developing until Clulup, characteristically, of course, started an anti-US diatribe about how we are no better than the Chinese because we've locked up terrorists and maybe (hopefully) beaten them silly for some answers. There is no debate that Clulup continually poisons threads with his anti-US remarks (but remember, he has NOTHING against the US, it's just that his version of Google only seems to point to extreme left wing sites) only to stir up as much animosity as possible.

    So now what could've been an interesting debate about China and the US has turned into another Bush/Iraq/Republicans/CIA/renditions/Gitmo/Afghanistan flamewar, started by the Swiss flamethrower for his own personal amusement.

    I shortened that, for brevity's sake.

    Guess you missed that in the thread already.

    I should point out that the original post article notes that the US moved into 6th position on that list, so US bashing is somewhat within scope.

    When you're Clulup, it always seems to be within scope, even when the thread is debating the merits of Callfilter 1.13.

    The title of the thread and the original post seemed to indicate that your mindset was not in that direction, so I'm not willing to give Clulup any lattitude there. You didn't bring up the fact that the US was #6 on the list, as a matter of fact, you implored us to buy US good in place of Chinese goods this 'heavy shopping season'.

    He could've discussed #s 2-5 if he felt it wasn't appropriate to call out #1. Nor did he feel the need to discuss 7-10 either. It was a direct, blatant attack. There is no veil to hide behind.

    I, for one, am tired of every single OT thread moving in that direction.

    May I suggest Webster's collegiate edition. It is quite respected in regards to providing definitions. If you notice the words rendition and torture are quite different and when used they make statements mean entirely different things.

    I asked for examples (factual) or incidents where the US Gov't tortured individuals and there have been none, just accusations and insinuations.
