Nay, nay, old bean. Show me where I've agreed with or supported one of your points in the manner you allege. "Getting" your point doesn't equal "agreeing" with it. I asked you to clarify a point and answer a question. Well, someone else provided the clarification, and you never answered my question.
Hint: the way to have the last word is to present an irrefutable argument. Try again.
lol, doanget much more "Baitable" than being called a "PANSIE" yet it opened up a very good discussion...
I think a lot of km's topics are like that... ...granted, his style is that of a Lawyer challenging the prevailing system... here, there & EVERYWHERE... but it's almost always seized upon as a fresh opportunity to begin another mindless assault.. many times having little to do with the topic, but twisted around to suit the old BUZZ
sometimes one member or another joins in, sometimes trying to debate the point.. but as things heat up.. everything tends to just get trampled in the mud... AGAIN
That's usually when 6 of 1 & new kojak sign off and everyone else there after. Yoyo took an extended leave. god knows who else packed up and left because all the good's been thrashed out of it...
... here we are again ... nothing ever actually gets debated, said, ...or resolved.

I already have "Yeah, I get the point — through no fault of yours"
Getting" your point doesn't equal "agreeing" with it.
Well, the point was that when we have to support wife-starving in Afghanistan it's time to call it a day. If you didn't agree with the point why did you say "it's time to call it a day"? Make your mind up, do you agree with the point or not?
I asked you to clarify a point
The point was already clear.
you never answered my question.
Wrong. The question was:
"are you implying this kind of maltreatment of women is not that big a deal?"
The answer was:
"it's a small deal in Afghanistan but a big deal in the West... which is why we shouldn't be fighting for it."
Everyone knows I answered the question so you're making yourself look rather foolish.
So you're going to keep beating the wrong drum no matter what, eh?
Your point may have been clear to you and a few others, but when I asked you — not anyone else — to clarify it, all I got was the same kind of convoluted BS you're attempting to sell now. And the question was "Is wife starving a big deal or not to YOU?" Not how big a deal it is to the West or the Afghanis. You still have not answered that question. Even when I made an assumption and gave you an opportunity to upend it, you did not offer a direct answer.
"Everyone" (there's that word again) knows what I asked. And in that context, "everyone" knows that you have not answered the question. So tell me again — and I'm sure you will — just who is making themselves look foolish?
I'd point out that you've dodged the issue of whether you agree or disagree with my point?
Your point may have been clear to you and a few others,
More like you're the only the one who claims not to have understood it.
And the question was "Is wife starving a big deal or not to YOU?"
I've already quoted the original question which I answered. What you're talking about now is how you modified it to try to keep the disruption going. As I've already said the answer to your question is built into my original post:
"Oh yeah, that's really worth dying for - wife-starving in Afghanistan".
