A textbook case...

...of "Dishes It Out But Can't Take It" syndrome. Names have been changed to avoid further embarrassment of the guilty.

This all started late last month. An acquaintance of mine in Canada mailed a bunch of his "regulars", as he does every so often on matters political and social (movies & anime), asking what we thought of a URL that was showing a video claiming that the crash of Flight 77 into the Pentagon was a hoax, and pointing out several pieces of "evidence" supporting this view. Astute readers will have already noticed the similarity to the book by Thierry Meyssan. One of the other Canadians on the list posted the link to the "Hunt the Boeing!" essay on snopes.com, and that's where the fun started.

Thanks, Shayne. I'm just getting to this now after several days without internet access. I thought it sounded like a video version of the conspiracy theory Thierry Meyssan was selling, and apparently I was right, according to Snopes.

One wonders where most of those people would have heard an air-to-surface missile or SSM before. They're not exactly common around the Washington area.

This is over. Kevin, please do me a favor and don't write/respond to anything I say, and I will do likewise. I don't like you. I find your nature condescending, insulting and mean, and your personality abrasive. Just ignore anything I say and we need never come in contact with each other ever again.

[shrugs] Okay.

Gee, one less person to like me in the world. Somehow I think I'll live.

tell that to my friend...

... who has a big scratch in her car, which she refuses to get repaired, from getting hit by a chunk of the plane as she drove by on VA 27 (for the non-locals, that's the road that goes around the south/west sides of the Pentagon, where the impact happened) that fateful morning.

Well, that was probably Rumsfeld's doing, right? [rolls eyes].

I tell you, it's like these people don't want to pay attention to the real situation, which is that we have a few thousand crazed religious nutballs who want to kill everyone who doesn't believe in their freakazoid version of Islam. Starting with us. They'd rather make up paranoid fantasies.

Ah yes. When confronted with logic and reason, the best way to respond is to promise never to argue with the person who can outthink you. There are more productive people to spend your time talking to, and I'm betting more enjoyable ones too.

Plus, I find your personality much fun to be around and talk with.

Thanks! The same is true of you, of course. Nice to have people around who you can disagree with more or less politely and not get into pissing contests with.

We are both to nice to give them the proper response,

Romans 12:16-20 says it all, I think.

I think goatse best expresses how some of the leftists want to see American's position in relation to the rest of the world.
