War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

I realized soon after I posted there were two points in the first part. Yet it may be that I subconciously consider them the same point on some level because I see reactors as a general threat to survival. To put it in a simple but an error prone statement "Why waste money on a security risk?" Its kind of like reinvesting in Sherman Tanks for 21st Century Warfare knowing in advance they are tinderboxes (that would be a strategic and tactical blunder.) When it comes to nuclear reactors though there are too many security issues from the onset not to consider those threats as part of the cost. But you are right there are two different points there.

Are you so sure then?

Or perhaps my goal is to show people the things they ought to consider? I rarely offer my opinion, merely what, in my eyes, should be considered by people. Therefore, I never give you something to consider that you've already considered, instead I bring another possible side to things.

My percieved preference for argument over wisdom is actually a preference to stir thought in others. My own wisdom is something I don't share nearly as often as you figure I do. Hahaha..

It's funny really. You've got no idea what I think of the situation in the ME, beyond a very vague set of facts, like I don't think the Iraq war was necessary. You where lied into it, just like 'Nam. But you're too into it to see or understand that. I can't think of anything else regarding that situation that you would know my thoughts on. This was proved very recently by your assuming my opinion about the Marine firing at and killing the Iraqi insurgent who was pretending to be dead.

Contrary to what you're so sure you know about me, I think that situation was handled quite well.


You don't know me nearly as well as you think. However, I will say you seem to be rather observant. You just simply don't have enough information on me to go off of. Keep it up though, you might get incremental bits more. :)

Your a screwball.

Its my opinion (unaligned socialist that I am :) )

1) That spreading nuclear reactors around is not only a waste of money but a global security risk.

2) Bombing said reactors causes a radiological health risk to local populations.

can we agree those two points?

...and your a screwball too.

Screamzero is very capable of debating eloquently and rationally. Whether he chooses to do so or not is up to him. I believe if he avoids his most typical style here you'll find quite a bit of logic in there even if you disagree with him.

Other poster have proven to be able to do so (debate agreeably) in the past, I expect no less less from Screamzero.
