It seems Phil took my advice and my warning seriously, despite all his initial bluster. Of course, this is not the only such thread of interest.

Not really.
'MaltaMon' and 'seriously' are two words I can't bring myself to use in the same sentence but you obviously can't stay away.

You came onto this thread recently for the sole purpose of charging at me, Phil. Is THAT your life or isn't it? I didn't start this. And now you resurrect that old withered, fundamentally meaningless chestnut of a platitude--and platitude of a chestnut--YOU..... HAVE.... A... LIFE. Oh, my. Really? Please, Phil, do everyone a favor, including yourself most of all, get back to that life full-time..

Kerry was a war hero. He volunteered for two deployments, bravely, and single-handedly (and in defiance of Navy protocol which requires that a captain never leave his ship) saved his boat and his crew from certain annihilation by leaping of its bow, while it was moving, to take out a young VC guerilla about to fire off a grenade launcher at them. The Bush Administration neo-con "chicken hawks"--the warmongering contemporaries of KerryKerry who had wilfully dodged the draft during the Vietnam era (Dick Cheney alone obtained FIVE deferments, and of course, Dubya's dad, "Poppy" Bush, then RNC chairman and UN Ambassador utonder Nixon, arranged for Junior toto serve out the war as a hard--partying, drug-abusing absentee pilot in the National Guard), cynically and amorally fictionalized Kerry's war record to characterize him as a coward. The tactic was known as "swift-boating", a reference to the type of river-patrol vessel that Kerry had commanded. In that wartime atmosphere of post-9/11 politically engineered fear-mongering, the lavishly-financed swiftboat campaign worked.
In connection with the Swift Boaters, we should also mention the ongoing smear campaign against another Vietnam War hero, Chuck Hagel. I find it unacceptable that a draft dodging, war mongering piece of filth like William Kristol should be running his word processor against Hagel and even worse, that anyone listens to him. And that a supposedly "liberal" Washington Post runs blog posts by a fascist whore like Jennifer Rubin, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Rethuglican Party.

Absolutely. These Chicken Hawks have no experience with warfare beyond their discussions and pronouncements, and sending off to battle the mostly poor and working class kids who volunteer for service with the hope of having their educational expenses covered if they survive. They have no sense of what my grandfather, a veteran of the brave 314th Infantry in France in 1918, described to me as, "crawling on your belly in the mud while getting shot at again and again, and not being able to stop and help your buddy next to you when he gets hit (by gunfire or explosivrs) And Kristol was chief of staff to Vice President Dan Quayle, another notoriously privileged draft dodger during the Vietnam war.

And if you criticize the needless, endless wars that they initiated, their response is to challenge your patriotism for not supporting the troops who had no voice in the decisions to fight these useless, destructive wars or in their five or six deployments to the battlefield in as many years. And they oppose the funding necessary tovtake care of those who return damaged as well as the families of those who are killed.

I am all too familiar, from history and, notably, from my former career, of what these evil, cowardly bastards are capable of. As does Hagel, a genuine war hero from the enlisted ranks who served in the Senatevduringvthe reign of Bush, Cheney, and the other privileged, war-profiteering Chicken Hawks.

MaltaMon, changing the subject (or not, as the case may be) I have a question re: Mr Cheney.
My understanding (and it could be wrong) is that after the US blew the sh*t out of Iraq the contracts (or some of them) to rebuild Iraq were handed out to Haliburton, which a certain Mr Cheney has/had a financial interest, without bothering with the niceties of allowing others to bid for those contracts, which in effect allowed Mr Cheney to literally profit from the loss of US troops.
Is my understanding correct or am I misinterpreting the situation?
If true Mr Bush and Mr Cheney should be shot.

Ah, I see. I I should accept the insulting hostility with which you began our dialogue, and then treat you with civility. I would be happy to answer your question. But only if and when you lose the hostile attitude. hoping for the best, mm

Phil, I assume that you know it is definitely NOT okay to attack from you first post, to maintain that attack with unrelenting perseverence,to write over and over again, "Everyone can see that you are a liar and a complete fraud " and then change the subject to ask my opinion on a topic that, for once coming from you, actually interests me. Why would anyone whom you so patently despise and have had in your crosshairs since the very second th tyou emerged from your silence--presumably a holiday respite--accord you that courtesy? You clearly want to skip the first step toward civility. But to do that is not okay. Regards, MM

I'm writing a book and must, therefore spend all my time on threads about boys.
That's some excuse.
That is about as credible as accusing someone of abusing a child with no real hard evidence.

Nah. I forgot how to do all that childish stuff. It has been much to long, even since my own kids did it. But I will wager that you still know how, Phil, and that along with your other secret passions, you still enjoy it, perhaps even with friends.
