I Was Attacked Over At OPFOR

Yesterday Charlie over at OpFor writes a post about the current danger spots in the world "Take a deep breath –things can get much, much worse in the MidEast" It was well written and informative, as usual. I like their stuff....that's why I go. I, of course, have very little to offer except for the occasional observation or off color remark (my specialty).

So I post a comment:
"I hate to break this to you, but I went to a panel discussion (James Carroll - House of War; Robert J. Lifton and Irene Gendzier - Crimes of War—Iraq) in Harvard Square last night and they explained it's America's fault. We are the problem. We need to just admit it."

And someone.............who quite obviously doesn't know me.....answers.
"I guess maggie and the folks up at that place she went to must think that we wrote the q'uran."

Fortunately, Scooby comes along.
"guess maggie and the folks up at that place she went to must think that we wrote the q'uran.

The angel Gabriel was really Karl Rove in a time machine.

(Maggie was being sarcastic, btw. So am I.)"

I see all this and defend myself
"B52 - Hold your fire!

I am a completely bloodthirsty, pro-OIF, Republican!

Scooby is right - that was sarcasm. I went to the lecture, but I didn't agree with anything they said

I just adore it (NOT), when people leap to conclusions. I've been labeled a liberal on a blog because I agreed with a person's post about a man being exhonorated by DNA evidence. Huh??? I guess you just can't win. Agree: get labeled. Disagree: get labeled. Oh well, the sun will still come up tomorrow.

Hey Maggie! Maybe I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure you can defend yourself;) In fact, I'd buy a ticket to sit ringside and urge you on!

John - I love seeing you type *adore*, it sooooooooo doesn't fit.

SK - Well, I am not saying I can't defend myself...........but as a loyal reader/commenter/fan, Charlie should have popped out and said something.

Besides, you know how I love men displaying their allegience to Princess Crabby. Did you see Sgt. B's comment on the whole Maggie's Drawers thing over at the Castle? It's the 4th from the last comment.

But House of War is a Big Book! So he must be right.

(I'm actually reading it - part of Know the Enemy)

Better you than I, sir. Jen & I have decided he was high at the lecture.
