It's the Perception Stupid.

Yeah, it is. You can paint a victory as a defeat in a larger context. By that I mean, the ememy made out far worse than you, but the mess of it makes it a moot point. As long as they can kill each other, and some of you, the damage is done. In wars of "choice," and not necessity, like the last two, this is a "gumption trap."1. Not a problem in WWII. Deaths by the tens of thousands had to be tolerated because the alternative was just that dire. Nothing since is even comparable no matter how hard some try to make the connection.

I've had fun looking at your comments under my name on Marc Cooper's blog.

You're quite a coward Mark, you cannot even use your own name.

How is vector control going. I know you Mark.

Not Utah do I live. But a closer place in warmth.

I've not posted at Cooper's so you must be babbling again. You punk you're trying my patience with this stalking. Cyberstalking is a crime. Just try me and see kid. We'll see whose mouse is taken away. Coward.

You've been reported to your local IP and the LA District Attorney. Good night and good luck.

Go ahead Mark I've plenty of evidence to back up your very own cyberstalking. You havent even seen the beginning of my built up case against you.

Oh please Mark--trying your patience? I'm not stalking you, not from the different piece of information streaming from you very own IP address.

By the way, what's my IP address Mark? Funny how you reported it to my ISP... this IP address is masked. Good night and good luck indeed.

I'm not visting you again Markie, you obviously don't like people visitng your website that disagree with your opinions. I hope that you take heed of this in regards to other people's websites and blogs: you have something to gain here... old man :)

What I don't like is threatening trolls, who impersonate others because they don't happen to agree with them. You're stupid punk kid, who probably has a vanity press book under his belt, otherwise what would be the outrage at Pod-dy's comments demise "at my own hand?"

I have a device installed here called Sitemeter. It tracks those who view my blog, for how long. who mtheir IP is and where. I reported you to the most likely candidate. You'll find out dimwit when they pull your frickin plug. I'm young enough to outwit your sorry ass any day of the week. Then again so could anyone no matter how infirmed. Now buzz off before my flyswatter lands on your puny head.

Zack Shutt's doing yeomen's work over at Amazon. I really liked his review of Mark's book. Sounds like Yorkseter just couldn't take the heat.

He's a POD troll who couldn't a book with a ghostwriter let alone by himself. He's never read my book. Did you see any detail in the review that indicated he had? It's strictly an ad hominem attack and like before will be removed. of course reader reviews mean nothing in general anyway, but they do have some standards.

As for the cold war, I fail to see how anyone is letting the US off the hook for any mistakes we made throughout history. Societies fail and yet ours hasn't. We learn and move on. It's what makes this political experiment better than the rest. It's a work in progress.

You miss the boat as usual even if you find the events and players. We did what we could to fix things. You avoided my previous question as to who was whom in that conflict. My father fought against Hitler. We didn't make him what he was. He did that on his own. Kamikazis know they've lost. You only blame one side. The wrong one in the larger context. There's always plenty of it to go around should one look.

Your qualifications are meaningless, and unevidenced since it is you that are the anonymouse in the woodwork. The onbly thing you deserve is the finger. Up yours punk. You've been reported. It's real, so believe what you wish. Now get out and stay out.

See definition of "assume" asshole. Your comments will be deleted on sight. Since you're a "bigtime author" you'll be able to take the rejection. Pfftt...Who the liar is is evident to those with two brain cells. Alas, you have but .23 of the requirement.
