I like anyone who says fuck you to the NCAA.  It's a horrible, corrupt organization that does far more harm than good.  Anything anyone does to show them up is good by me.

The problem isn't the NCAA, it's the NFL and NBA who want free developmental leagues.  Get the pro wanna-be's who aren't interested in college (and their leeches/entourages) the fuck out of college sports.  You don't see this shit in college baseball...

The Civil Rights movement was well on its way before Nixon.  That it gained support after they realized that the mood of the country was begining to swing does not mean that the Civil Rights movement itself owes its success to the Cold War.  As I said, most of what you attribute to the Cold War happened in spite of US policy, not because of it.   Citing riots that occured during the Cold War doesn't exactly make it sound like the U.S. was trying to be model world citizens.   icon_wink

It also seems a little insulting to say that the struggles of the African American citizens during this time, a struggle that resulted in so many acts of injustice by American politicans that you believe were trying to set an example, only bore fruit because the U.S. wanted to look good on the world stage.

But the original argument was whether or not America was trying to do the right thing during the Cold War and was setting an example.  And as I've said (and shown), that just didn't happen. 



Not only, but probably would have failed.  Heck, it (the Civil Rights Act) might not have passed if it weren't for Kennedy's assassination either.  It was not an easy thing, and there was a confluence of a variety of factors that all needed to be happening for it to occur.  That's one of the things that makes it so amazing.

I was confused by his post as well at first.  what he means is Bush got involved in those three countries, not that the Brotherhood is involved.

don't worry Pyper, I get you!!!

My bad, or maybe his for his confusing post! smile

The point wasn't so much the involvement, but the hypocrisy of being mad at Obama for supporting rebels against dictatorships while ignoring the evolution of Governments in the Cheney-Bush wars.  Taliban will still be around, and Iraq is more likely to be another Islamist Government (Hezbollah is currently part of the ruling coalition of Shia), etc. The situation in the Middle East has become much more unstable since 9/11, and our actions in the region are a huge part of that.

Usually true but as Egypt shows sometimes a democracy isn't and even when they are they can sometimes be more of a threat than many dictatorships.

Although I do appreciate the fact that it makes me less uneasy about the hardship on the people that a war with us brings.

On the last sentence I fully agree. But what is the objective? What do WE gain from this.

Respect, friendship with the new govt? World repspect? Arab world? I don't see gaining any respect with any of them even if it were a flawless attack/operation whatever.

I can surely sit here and type for a while listing things stand to LOSE even if it goes flawless. If it goes wrong we could do the damage Bush/Carter/Obama did all roled up into one, and do it in astoundingly short order.

But my biggest opposition is, you still need to follow the process. This attempted to bypass it all the time is disrespectful of the people and what America stands for. It also just gives more validation to the numerous people worldwide who think and preach that it is nothing but a rotating dictatorship. I still hope though that the quick trigger was all media hype and whatever he does will be with full congressional support. When an action like this happens the world should know the nation has decided this not some president or party.

It is a fundamental part of who we are, if we forget that the rest doesn't matter.

The only thing we get out of this is that we respond(ed) to a use of Nerve Gas.  Though it sounds like the response (it isn't just ours, though we are driving the bus), won't be the kind of response that will have any sort of preventative value.

During the Cold War however, we actually tried to live up to it - the GWoC (global war on communism) kind of demanded it.  We acknowledged that we weren't perfect, and tried to be an example.  Now we're more like Capitalism, YAY!  There is nothing we won't do for a dollar...

Vietnam, Korean War, Bay of Pigs, McCarthyism, HUAC, the arm's race, the spying (numerous and well documented)....

I fail to see how we were trying in any way to live up to a golden standard during the Cold War.  Heck, the feds, as ordered by Robert Kennedy, taped almost every single phone conversation of people like Dr. Martin Luther King because our government was afraid of what "the nation's most dangerous negro" could do to capitalism.  If anything, it was far worse back then.

Civil Rights movement, Gay rights movement, Women's rights movement, Indian reparations, Japanese internment reparations, Peace Corps.  I don't think there's any way in hell the Civil Rights movement happens without the Cold War and the need to show that our brand of freedom was better than communism, and that laid the groundwork for all the rest.

I think you need to read up a bit on your history.  Take for instance the NAACP attempting to get rid of segregation during WWII.  Though the Civil Rights movement existed well before that even.  But during the Cold War, African Americans weren't invited to march and protest.  Far from it.  They had to break the law to do it.  How is that a sign of American good will and an attempt to lead by example?  As I mentioned earlier, their own government was spying on prominent members of the Civil Rights movement to boot.

The Women's Rights movement began in the mid 1800's in the U.S..  They didn't get a boost from the Cold War.  Some strides may have been made during that time, but to say it was because of the Cold War is just not true.

The Gay Rights movement was not having a heyday during the Cold War in America.  I have no clue where you got that idea.  Homosexual baiting was a trusted tool of intimidation during the Cold War.  Wanna discredit a suspected dissident?  Accuse him of being gay.

No, my friend.  During the Cold War, the United States was accusing people of being commies left and right (or, if they REALLY wanted to smear them, they accused them of being cross dressing transvestites), making deals with shady governments in order to "stop the red menace", and generally doing what sovereign nations do when they feel threatened.  It was not a golden age of morality.  Almost everything you mention happened in spite of the Cold War, not because of it. 

...but I will give you the Peace Corps.  That was a fantastic bit of PR on Kennedy's part.   icon_wink

Actually, you are mistaken.  While there were a ton of Civil Rights abuses during the Cold War, I don't see any way that the Civil Rights Act passes without the need to look good to the Third World:

Quote
Yet one aspect of the Civil Rights movement has always been neglected in the conventional history of the movement. This was its connection to the Cold War. For America to win the Cold War, Civil Rights was a necessity. Continuing domestic discrimination against non-white minorities would make it impossible to win over the newly-free Third World.

Politicians at the time understood this very well, and it wasnít as if they kept this fact secret. Presidents, such as Harry Truman, explicitly linked the Cold War to Americaís race relationships. They put it in their speeches. They put it in their political advertisements.

You could also try this one = The Effect of the Cold War on African-American Civil Rights: America and the World Audience, 1945-1968

As to Women's and Gay Rights, etc, there was a concerted push after the Civil Rights movement in both of those areas- the Equal Rights Amendment movement for women, as well as the Stonewall riots courage to fight back against oppression movements don't happen without the Civil Rights movement laying the groundwork.

Ok, one more last thought on what I have been able to gather given current reports and my apparent uncommon knowledge.

Quote
Some worldwide have expressed concern that intervening in Syria may provoke broader conflict in the Middle East or ensnare Western powers in another bloody conflict after years of warfare in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Cameron said that he understands those concerns, vowing that any action would have to be "proportionate, ... legal (and) would have to be specifically about deterring the use of chemical weapons."
Still, he said it's critically important that action be taken to show the international taboo against chemical weapons will not be tolerated.
"This is not about wars in the Middle East; this is not even about the Syrian conflict," he said. "It's about use of chemical weapons and making sure, as a world, we deter their use and we deter the appalling scenes we've all seen on our television screens.

Couldn't agree more, however I would pose a question to Mr Cameron or anyone else who wants me to support military action due to this attack.

If the proof of WHO was responsible for this release of chemical weapons is not disclosed to a level to convince any impartial party of such. Does it really deter or as I fear actually encourage the use of them. Just in a way that appears to point to the opponent of the offending party? Because I have little doubt that much of the world is littered with groups that are more than willing to use such things against their own if it furthers their agenda.

Would this constitute WHO?

Quote
Last Wednesday, in the hours after a horrific chemical attack east of Damascus, an official at the Syrian Ministry of Defense exchanged panicked phone calls with a leader of a chemical weapons unit, demanding answers for a nerve agent strike that killed more than 1,000 people. Those conversations were overheard by U.S. intelligence services, The Cable has learned. And that is the major reason why American officials now say they're certain that the attacks were the work of the Bashar al-Assad regime -- and why the U.S. military is likely to attack that regime in a matter of days...

...However, U.S. spy services still have not acquired the evidence traditionally considered to be the gold standard in chemical weapons cases: soil, blood, and other environmental samples that test positive for reactions with nerve agent. That's the kind of proof that America and its allies processed from earlier, small-scale attacks that the White House described in equivocal tones, and declined to muster a military response to in retaliation. 

However, we're not just talking chemical weapons, we're talking Nerve agents, and AFAIK, that was always a much bigger no-no than mustard gas, etc... at least that's how I recall it growing up.

After reading about Operation Gladio, we resort to dirty tricks on a regular basis, even against allies.  There's an old chestnut that I heard that stated the only countries we don't spy on are Britain, Canada, and Australia, and I'm not even sure if that's true. 

We seek advantage wherever we can, because the Soviets were certainly doing it, and you know that the militant factions of whatever group pull no punches. 

The myth of American exceptionalism in terms of a moral high ground is just that, a myth.  I've said it before.  There's a line there somewhere as to what we should and shouldn't do, but I have no idea where it is.  And not knowing the full truth of what we're up against, I imagine that I never will.

During the Cold War however, we actually tried to live up to it - the GWoC (global war on communism) kind of demanded it.  We acknowledged that we weren't perfect, and tried to be an example.  Now we're more like Capitalism, YAY!  There is nothing we won't do for a dollar...

I really want to get excited about the Xbone.   I was ultra excited about the 360 when it launched.   I stood outside in 33 degree rain overnight at a Best Buy and came up 3 places short in line to get one.   I then spent the next month on a holy crusade to get one.   

I STUMBLED across a PS3 while looking for it, so I ended up with both consoles.   

I REALLY REALLY want to develop a reason to keep my preorder for the Xbone for this fall.   Hark has given me one reason because when I'm playing multiplayer on the 360 it's usually with him and his merry band of snipers.    However, I'm still waivering because Microsoft has given me plenty of reasons to get angry at what they are trying to feed me, and not enough reasons to think this system is anywhere close to what the 360 was when it launched.

I have to say that I am still sitting on both launch day preorders but I'm extraordinarily torn.

Maybe this perspective from an xBone engineer will help:

The thing is we suck at telling the story. The whole point of the DRM switch from disc based to cloud based is to kill disc swapping, scratched discs, bringing discs to friends house, trade-ins for shit value with nothign going back to developers, and high game costs....

...Google TV + PS4 + Minority report level gestures, that combined with a sick second screen experience (which is really hot for TV, I know I know.. tv tv tv tv tvÖ but itís fucking sick when you have it). Games will be the same, there are more exclusives to MS then PS atm, and Kinect 2 makes Kinect 1 look like a childs toy...

...Current plan is basically youíre fucked after 24 hours. YeahÖ I know. Kind of sucks. I believe they will probably revist the time period and / or find a diff way to ďcall inĒ to ensure you havenít sold your license to gamestop or somethingÖ but there is no plan YET. Iím hoping the change it, but I donít work on that so I donít have much influence there /sigh...

...THe original intention was to get all the Multiplayer servers not requiring 3rd party costs (Like EA shutting down game servers to cut costs), as well as taking all the games that servers hosted by the clients (Halo, etc), and have all that compute done in the cloud allowing more CPU cycles for gameplay. That will really expand what developers can do. Anything that doesnít need per frame calculation and can handle 100ms delays can be shifted to the cloud. Thatís huge....

...SmartGlass + IE is going to be pretty freaking sweet. 1 finger cursor, 2 finger direct manip. Basically if you think of a laptop trackpad where your phone/ slate is the trackpad and the monitor is your TVÖ itís that. The tech is there, just needs to be applied. There is some really cool shit going on with Petra + controllers that pairs people with controllers. So if person with controller two trades controlers with controller 1, their profiles magically switch. Itís sick. What does this matter? Now if you lean left/right it knows which person is leaning, even if 4 people are all int he same room. Itís awesome...

...New service using Azure for cloud compute. Allows developers to not use clients for hosting multiplayer servers, or other tasks that do not require per frame calcuations. Itís pretty sweet.

It at least sounds better that way than the PR flak idiots.

I picked up the 360 to go with the HDTV, as well as since the PC had been somewhat forlorn before Steam completely re-energized it (IMHO).  I never picked up a PS3 or a Wii.  I've barely touched my 360 in the past 8 months, and I think I'm more likely to hook up a computer to my TV and go from there.

Ask me again in October, it's possible they could wow me, but for now, I haven't seen anything that would lead to me becoming an early adopter.  Maybe if I go with a new 4k tv or something, but for now I'm thinking that true value is on the PC side.  There's going to have to be something there that isn't being done well on the PC (and cheaper).  So far, I haven't seen it.

I just want to say that I wish it was possible for both Alabama and Notre Dame to lose.

It would have been interesting to see if the voters jumped Oregon/Kansas St/ND over Florida if ND had lost to USC.  I wonder if that scenario would have ended up with Northern Illinois still in the Orange... if they didn't, well I'm glad we don't have another SEC rematch, but the rest of the Bowls are pretty lame this year.
