    Unless you confess you did something out of the book you wont find that kind of setup around here.

    That's certainly good to know. It's quite refreshing to see a forum that tries to adhere to a logical and transparent setting. The more I see here the more I like. I apologize to the defensiveness and if you've any questions feel free to ask. I will try to be as candid as possible.

    I would be lying if I said I didn't have an incredible urge at the moment to find myself back in Iraq trying to stop the extremists that seem to be taking over willy nilly at the moment...

    it's really sad when soldiers of another nation have a greater willingness to protect the citizens of another nation than the government of the nation itself.
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov
