202  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [P] Majority of Bush supporters think Iraq had WMD on: October 23, 2004, 08:47:51 AM
Quote from: "Clanwolfer"
Quote from: "slackerjoe"
Iraq did have WMD. This is an incontrovertible fact.


That's not the issue.  We know they did have WMD in the past.  The dispute is whether they had WMD, or the faciilities to produce WMD, in terror-effective quantities at the time of our build-up to invasion.  That looks ever more doubtful.
If they had WMD in the past, and inspections show they do not have them now, then where did they go? This should be the number one question being asked right now. Rumors are that they have been shipped to Syria or other neighboring countries. If we didn't remove Hussein, the only question is when Iraq would have had their weapons programs up and running again, not if.

It was Saddam's responsibility to prove he didn't have any WMD. He didn't do that and he underestimated the will of the Utnited States. Along with liberating Iraq, this has been a very useful example for the rest of the world's theocracies and dictatorships to take note of.

The thing about sanctions in Iraq is that they were not working. What was working was tens of thousands of US troops sitting across his border and enforcing a no-fly zone. But having that many troops in one location long-term is not a viable strategy. We were going to have either leave or take action And we know which way our fellow UN Security Council members France and Russia wanted us to go.  The UN Oil-for-Food was an unmitigated disaster the largest fraud in the history of the world.  That has been the real mistake that was made regarding Iraq - letting the UN run a scam which was helping to refinance Hussein's power while his people continued starving.

205  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [Fantasy Football] Week 7 Advice Thread on: October 21, 2004, 03:26:52 PM
Thanks for the affirmation!

By the way, I'm trying to strengthen my WR position. What do you think of the following trade offer:

I send -- Brian Westbrook, Chad Johnson (stiff) and Amani Toomer
I get -- Marshall Faulk, Stephen Jackson, Hines Ward (stud)

My #1 WR right now is Eric Moulds (should have been CJohnson). Other WRs are Ashley Lelie and Andre Davis.

207  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [Fantasy Football] Week 7 Advice Thread on: October 21, 2004, 12:44:18 AM
Post your questions here!

Question 1: I've got a tough call to make with my RB situation.

My 3 RBs are:
Tiki Barber vs DET
Ahman Green vs DAL
Mewelde Moore vs TEN

I must start two. Barber is no-brainer, especially vs DET! One thing that is leaning towards me going with Moore over Green is that the guy I'm playing has Culpepper as his QB.

Question 2: On another team I have, there's another tough call to make.
Wwhich one of these 3 do I bench: Tiki Barber (vs DET), Shawn Alexander (@ ARI), or Brian Westbrook (@ CLE)? I guess I have to bench Westbrook... but the Eagles offense is really lighting it up these days

lol! The old I've-been-sleep-walking-and-having-sex-with-strangers excuse! Works every time!

I liked this quote:

Her partner was already aware that she was a sleep walker and also had been confounded by condoms he found strewn around the house
... I have the same problem! Those darn confounded condoms always being strewn about the house!
213  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Fellowship 9/11 on: October 16, 2004, 02:56:32 PM
Here's the synopsis:

Quote
Michael Moore's searing examination of the Aragorn administration's actions in the wake of the tragic events at Helms Deep.

With his characteristic humor and dogged commitment to uncovering - or if necessary fabricating - the facts, Moore considers the reign of the son of Arathorn and where it has led us.

He looks at how - and why - Aragorn and his inner circle avoided pursuing the Saruman connection to Helms Deep, despite the fact that 9 out of every 10 Orcs that attacked the castle were actually Uruk-hai who were spawned in and financed by Isengard.

Hilarious spoof of Michael Moore's F9/11 using the LotR.

I will concede that it could easily be the most polished day one MMO ever, but that doesnt mean it will actually be ready and that there wont be tons of nerfs to come, because there will be.

There has yet to be a MMO "ready" for release.  

Final Fantasy XI was 100% stable and very ready for release. Never say never.  smile

217  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is this starting to feel like GG? on: October 15, 2004, 04:46:15 PM
I've been without an online home for about a week since gg went down. But after hanging out at several gaming related message boards, I've determined that this is the one that seems to suit me best. I just like the atmosphere, especially the courtesy shown by everyone here.

I also want to express my thanks to the moderators and administrators who have made me feel so welcome here. smile
