Something tells me you would get very nervous and paranoid if your woman was exposed to the influence of "The Dave Nelson". Your insecurities and shortcomings would overwhelm you. You would resist likely enhancements to your living experience out of that fear. Relax, I am sure "The Dave Nelson" would return her to you, and in better shape.

See, you failed again.
And Darwin is a madman. Only a fool can say that his ancestor was a plankton, from plankton he evolved to fish, from fish to frog, from frog to dinosaur, from dinosaur to monkey, the monkey grabbed a stick, stood straight and started to think, speak and have feelings. Seems to me you agree with him, I'll stick to that we all were made according to God's image :)

It was sarcasm to begin with, meaning the reason we went to Iraq was because of what the Iraqi did to Kuwait. Not that an evil president decided to kill Iraqi's. Or that we invaded Kuwait like Ali Baba and the 40 thieves, that was WTH Iraqis did.
...Silly Billy , No one gives a crap about Kuwait ...

For "the last fifty years we've been supporting right wing governments, and that is a puzzlement to me... I don't understand what there is in the American character ... that almost automatically, even when we have a liberal President, we support fascist dictatorships or are tolerant towards them.
....ENOUGH OF THIS CHARADE...!!

America ' is ' the bees knees ...you constantly try to besmirch Her by taking ' direct ' quotes , from her generals , top states men and most ardent supporters ...Only , proving Americans are honest and capable of self criticism ...SOMETHING " YOU " ONLY FIND IN THE WEST ...!

There is real trouble in the World , an Islamic insurgency that has no qualms about murdering school children , drug cartels that do the same ..Warlords who operate with impunity ..China deciding it owns the ' entire ' South China Sea , Russia deciding it owns it neighbors , Mexicans , Central Americans and North Africans ...all expounding that it's too dangerous to travel at night ..

Of , course I don't blame the CIA ..trouble like this has always existed , the Thuggees of the subcontinent , Poncho Villa , the Saxons and Hannibal ..

You may be right, mayhaps the Pentagon ' is ' dictating foreign policy ...but , to be sure the most expensive military in the world , is the one that ' was ' second best ...

now you're sounding more reasonable!:-)

although, if it were my thought i might tweak this a bit to say; God is the healer of all our/'BELIEVER'S' pain and anguish , but sometimes He works through modern medical practices 'when we don't ask and believe Him more perfectly'

dude said - "Yet much of his findings will survive forever"

do you mind defining your use of the word "forever" in context here?

i personally believe and have much scriptual precedent to back it, that the wicked and their Godless theories will soon be forgotten once the Redeemed begin their eternal journey:-)

No one gives a crap about Kuwait you say.
This sounds just like you said it.

The Gulf War (2 August 1990 – 28 February 1991), codenamed Operation Desert Storm (17 January 1991 – 28 February 1991) was a war waged by coalition forces from 34 nations led by the United States against Iraq in response to Iraq's invasion and annexation of Kuwait.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulf_War

Sure Saddam's threats to other things and places apply, including scud launches into Israel.
But the gist of the matter is much simpler.

"The initial conflict to expel Iraqi troops from Kuwait began with an aerial bombardment on 17 January 1991. This was followed by a ground assault on 24 February. This was a decisive victory for the Coalition forces, who liberated Kuwait and advanced into Iraqi territory."

Everyone tends to care about people being bullied by assholes, especially nations being bullied by them.
