    I've addressed you're copy and paste accusation above. I don't bulldoze anyone, I merely offer an opposing view. If you feel threatened then maybe you need to grow thicker skin. Your agitation shows when you lose an argument to me(which is quite often) and is very unflattering Flash.

    I am a big fan of history and quotes and such myself, so bravo! I just have a few short observations regarding your premise.

    Political correctness is not necessarily just a modern thing....the folks you quote all very well could have had political motives driving these quotes.....they didn't get to their positions by not playing political games....

    The Macaurthur one is particularly interesting considering Truman fired him in 1951 for his insisting nukes be used in China......he also could have been very partial to the possible glory that his leading a land invasion might have added to his stature.....

    Those with the luxury of hindsight have a way of framing their voice of opposition to suit their own purposes.....

    Not sure why these guys would have thought the war would end that quickly......history and the situation itself should show that would be a stretch......the last Japanese soldiers on Iwo Jima surrendered in 1949......a land invasion that did not produce optimal results very well could have extended the war indefinitely and it would be a legitimate assumption that all civilians would be involved in the defense, as shown in previous examples during the war.....

    All the quotes you posted stated in them that they were opinions, not facts.

    I never said otherwise. Why do you feel the need to rush to someone's defense each time I directly address them? Are they incapable of answering themselves? Are you Shop Steward?

    you did imply otherwise. Need I repost your post? You jumped flash for posting opinions that he said were opinions, same as your posted quotes. Then you said yours are valid, while his aren't ' implying yours weren't opinions, even tho they themselves stated they were.


    Whew!

    Damn it Jimmy. Didn't you hear what Dick said. They are facts......not opinions. Don't argue with him, since he's way more intelligent than anyone else on here. :biglaugh:What someone else writes in an article isn't that author's opinion, it's a fact. lol

    Dick is getting a little testy..........defending everything Obama must be getting him frustrated.:hilarious:

    That's great.....just don't tell us that it's fact and not just another opinion.

    Threatened? That's laughable. And if I'm supposed to be "threatened" by what you copy and paste, that's even more laughable.

    This proves my theory. You think that somehow you can "win".......and on a board like this, everyone thinks that they are winning, it's just that the rest of us are intelligent enough to know that NOBODY is swaying anyone else's opinion. You still need a little work on that.:duh:

    Try and keep up. When someone, say Dwight Eisenhower, said something in history, and I repeat his quote, it's a fact it's a direct quote from him. It doesn't change the fact the original quote is an opinion, just that it's a fact he stated it.

    Man....... this guy's dumber than he looks. Oh, that's his avatar.
    What's that? The mic is live? Oh well it needed to be said.

    You may want to read them again before posting. Your foot in your mouth is very unbecoming Jimmy.

    It appears your opinion differs from everyone else's opinion on here. At least that's my opinion.

    I read your posts of opinions closely. And I read where you blasted Flash for brushing them off as just opinions. I cannot see that you have a point.

    The first rule to accept, when you've dug yourself into a hole, is to stop digging. :emoticon digging:

    Go deep enough, it caves in on you, Mr Nowhere Man.

    Can we get beyond personal 'feelings' and accept that some opinions differ from others' opinions and get back to the subject? For whatever reason, most things DD gets into end this way...

    Not "whatever" reason. It's because you're an instigator Jimmy.

    "He's a real nowhere man
    Sitting in his nowhere land
    Making all his nowhere plans for nobody"

    The Beatles "Nowhere man". It's a great tune.
