    No, all the cops were like, "I'll believe it when I see it!" and let me stay. ;)

    Sorry, Tom. I forgot to notify you that I was camping out on your front lawn in anticipation of the announcement. :D

    Interesting side benefit of a ruined credit score. I'm thinking about buying a house, took a look at my credit report. They conflated a bunch of my father's stuff with mine, including date of...

    I finally had a chance to use my JRC strop this morning. The rough leather works much better than the woven nylon I used to use, and the smooth side is smoother than what I'm used to. This makes...

    Wow, I didn't know there was a season 3, thanks for the heads up!

    Dude, if you can convince me it's just the leadership, I'll buy you a nice bottle of whiskey and a box of cigars.

    Awesome. I bet she's happy to be back in the office!

    Ooh! Is there a choice C, all of the above? To me, one of the more interesting intricacies of all this is how the domestic politics make the game just exponentially more complicated. Putin has a...
  12. Yep, I understand. I just disagree, is all. I...

    Yep, I understand. I just disagree, is all. I think we and the Russians are more alike - that the Russians are less "must grab pie while getting is good," and Americans are more so - than what you...

    WB, that's a lucid explanation of what I think is the main confusing element here - the idea that Russia and the US are natural-born adversaries. Personally, I don't buy it. But it's a point on...

    TGS, thanks again for those articles. The boys decided to play instead of building their new model rockets right now, so I had time to peruse them. Admittedly, I didn't read every word of all of...
  15. Still haven't read the articles you posted, but...

    Still haven't read the articles you posted, but this seems like you're harkening back to moral superiority as the cause and justification for these interventions.

    I'm not trying to nail you down,...

    First, let me remind everyone to keep it civil. Let's refrain from discussing each other, stay focused on the ideas. In that spirit, I won't respond to the absurd implication that I'm against any...

    That's a pretty broad statement. Good faith question here, just trying to follow your thinking. Who are "the Russians?" What goals do they have that preclude those of "all of the West?"

    ETA:...

    If Russia manages to reestablish influence/control in its periphery, and then tries to keep going, they'll have to roll over some serious obstacles, even if the US was only a small part of that.

    OK, fair enough. So if our motivation to intervene in the Baltics isn't to combat Russian oppression, it must be to limit Russia's ability to expand or cement its influence there... right? In which...
  21. Fair enough. Maybe you could clarify, then? ...

    Fair enough. Maybe you could clarify, then? Because I just reread our posts, and it sounds like you favor early intervention in the hopes that we can deter major world powers from increasing their...

    "We are men of action. Lies do not become us." Does anyone seriously believe that we fight wars to liberate oppressed peoples?



    Yeah, I do. Because oppression doesn't scale, especially with...
  23. Worse for who? We delayed the inevitable in...

    Worse for who? We delayed the inevitable in every overseas intervention through WW2. If we'd have intervened sooner, would that have minimized suffering? I'm not so sure, and it certainly wouldn't...
  24. Interesting. I propose that our core...

    Interesting. I propose that our core disagreement is about whether world war is inevitable. If I believed it was avoidable in the long run, I'd side with you on this. But I believe world war is...
  25. I don't see Russia ignoring its interests,...

    I don't see Russia ignoring its interests, specifically energy exports and restoring its sphere of influence, at a minimum. They're not afraid of fighting for it, and fighting dirty. They took our...
