I'm not sure that they would have him.
Thank you Mr Takao and Mr lwd for a free mental evaluation, i.e. calling me a moron.
Btw ldw, are you that lwd on axisforum who, having no access to new or original research, mainly explained things to newbies there? I'm sure it was you. And you are playing an expert here now - I suppose it's easier here.
But you understand that "your credentials" is nothing more than the known logical fallacy called appeal to authority. If we allowed such fallacies in our discussions no discussions will be possible or even needed, the man with the biggest "authority" on his side will always win.
In a cross to ABC radio’s AM program on Monday morning, the reporter again railed against Mr Trump’s leadership style while discussing his lack of commitment to addressing the situation in North Korea at the weekend’s summit.
“What the expectation was on North Korea was the United States would say well, OK, here’s an issue that we want to make something of. They are the biggest gorilla, still, in the room,” Uhlmann said.
i.e. he is railing against Mr Trump because Trump didn't provide leadership needed to issue an condemnation of North Korea.
I'm saying, that Kim is a genocidal criminal who doesn't give a damn about declarations, so it's is a naive demand, more likely expressing partisanship of the reporter than reality. He probably isn't naive anyway, he just have an ax to grind.
Please notice that Takao actually agrees with me, by writing that:
The problem with this statement, is that most of the G20 do not have a dog in the North Korean fight.
It means it would be pointless, but you shouldn't bother with it, he generally disagrees with me on every point by posting some weak arguments, and lacking even those he just calls me a liar, idiot, or moron.
At least we were being generous. One can't help it if one is one has problems due to birth or injury. The alternative explanations imply a deliberate effort on your part. By the way if you actually look at what I wrote you'll see that I didn't call you a moron.
Reading comprehension problems or is it deliberate. I've never claimed to be an expert here or there. I don have a pretty logical mind though an am rather good at spotting inconsistencies. Both areas you seem to have issues with.
Your welcome. Based on empirical evidence, it is a very simple conclusion to come to. Very very few posters will post articles that do not support their argument, yet you did...It is hard to argue with such empirical evidence.
Actually, I was disagreeing with your statement...
But those leaders aren't children, I think - any of them could have proposed such a statement.
I disagreed with your conclusion that any of the other G20 Leaders could have proposed such a statement. The reality is that most could not, because they were disinterested third parties. Of the remaining 4; Japan and South Korea lack the political clout necessary to achieve such a goal, China has motives that remain suspect, which leaves only the US to carry the torch. However, Trump's alienating most of the G20 leadership, likely makes any such coalition a pipe dream.
Let's go America...Your first! And alone...
Ah yes...Delusions of grandeur.
Well both answers are actually beyond my wildest expectations, basically proving your boorish upbringing, and lack of manners. Which results in intolerance to opposing views, and lack of debating skills resulting in invectives flying early on in any discussion.
Ahhh, the pot calls the kettle black...
Intolerance to opposing views? You mean like calling any and all opposing views "fake news"...That indicates a decided lack of debating skill.
See ya later Pot. This is the Kettle signing off.
Well, at least Trump is draining the "swamp."
Spicer just went down the drain.
This is seriously out of line.
If you want respect, post logical arguments with relevant facts and back them up with proper references. If you post ill-considered trash, don't whinge and pout about getting called out.
Mayhap you need to (re)consider the reason so many of your posts engender such a response, other than playing a blame game?
Takao has proven his worth,more times than I can count. Guy knows his stuff, more than most. When someone like him posts about something, you better be 200% certain what you talking about, or at least make a solid argument, or you will look like the idiot. Like you do now.
You have not refuted his counterpoints, yet embark on this tiresome tirade of hurt pride.
With Spicer gone, I wonder how long it will be before we hear 'Scaramouche, Scaramouche will we do the fandango?'
What ill-considered trash posted by me do you have in mind?
I refuted a few of them, and I'm quite capable of refuting all of them, but I'm not going to discuss with walls of text, and a mass of tangential topics interlaced with idiot, moron and my birth defects.
Take a deep breath, go back over the past 5 pages, and read your posts and the responses they engender.
Perhaps it is the walls of text you need to read more carefully, to properly understand the information being imparted.
If it is only empty, monochromatic one liners, concurring with your denigration of civil society, devoid of thought and reasoning you seek, perhaps you should look elsewhere?
None of us can do anything about any of our birth defects, never mind yours. Personally, I think my enduring patience is my God-given Achilles heel. I try to combat it daily.
Closed, why not?
