That's I&I for ya. He's already pre-determined what he thinks your position is and then twists your words to fit a bill so that he accuses you of supporting a position that you don't. He's the master of strawmen, false dichotomies, and being a dick that grimly mocks a large group of people by painting them all under the same brush stroke, regardless of what evidence stands in his way that points to the contrary.

I see there is nothing new occurring and that I&I has still failed to gain a sense of perspective. Good, it would almost be painful to watch him be anything other than a troll poking his head out of some dictator's sopping wet vagina, he would lose his already weak grasp with reality if he was doing anything other than that.

Well, first of all, I'd say I am an atheist. Though, whether I am or not does not seem to me to have any bearing on our discourse here.

Second of all - reading comprehension ain't exactly your strong suit, is it? I'm not choosing sides. I never said I was choosing sides. In fact I said I wasn't choosing sides:

It's like every sentence in your post is a new straw man.

He is at the head of an authoritarian minority-run single-party undemocratic state. I'd call that a dictator. Whether that's unique or not is - here's that word again - irrelevant.

Nope, try again. Didn't do that. Though perhaps in your world, omitting mention of is equivalent of implicitly supporting. I won't pretend to know what goes on in your abject mind. Also - what was it a wise man once said? Oh, yes:

Hmm... Maybe, neither of the two bloodthirsty, rapacious factions currently fighting over the country? Fuck, what a stumper. I had to really put my mind on that one.


Allow me to paraphrase our discussion:
cjlr: I believe A.
I and I: how can you support B?
cjlr: I didn't say B. I said A.
I and I: cocks cocks America cocks propaganda cocks

So you believe Assad should be overthrown by religious nut jobs but don't believe they should be in power. Riiiiiiiiiight


And I don't believe Assad should be in power but I support him beating anything that smells of this foreign "spring" from the beginning to now.

You see kids, one side loses and one side wins, the rooting for one side to lose is by default the rooting of one side to win. You can't shit on one side all day then cop out " I didn't say I support Alqaeda trying to overthrow him".

Hooray! One more time, kids!

I support humanitarian aid to suffering people. I never advocated regime change. In an ideal world there are better alternatives to Assad. Al Nusra is not one of them. Since this is not an ideal world (you're in it, after all), said alternatives are a little thin on the ground.
