Hi Brian,
If you are out of touch with reality.. as groomy says, then what does that make him? Totally unable to read and research... a government Shill, sitting there spouting US propaganda and lies. from a script. imo

'***'You're not sure that the US did carpet bomb Afghanistan or not?'
Had they done so, then there would be nothing left, but there is, so no it wasn't carpet bombed. Yours is emotive language, out of touch with reality.***

(Try reading the whole article groom..It is absolutely harrowing......... but will it move you? I doubt it.)

CARPET BOMBING 'KILLS 150 CIVILLIANS 150' IN FRONTLINE TOWN.
The Independent, London, November 19, 2001
By Justin Huggler in Cheshma-ye Bangi

An Afghan man lifts the head of a child who along with 11 other civilians died during US air raids in Kabul on October 28, 2001, witnesses said a man and his seven children were killed when a bomb crashed through their home.

A catastrophic error by ''carpet-bombing US Air Force warplanes'' was blamed yesterday for the deaths of about 150 unarmed Afghan civilians in a densely populated frontline town caught up in the battle for the Taliban redoubt of Kunduz.
'Terrified refugees fleeing the town of Khanabad' yesterday told The Independent that American planes had bombed the area a few miles from Kunduz 'daily' since Thursday, seemingly oblivious to the fact that the buildings they were bombing were civilian homes.
(Yeh like we believe that????)
All day yesterday, huge plumes of smoke rose from the hills on the front lines near the Taliban's last northern stronghold as B-52 bombers continued to drop their loads of bombs.

"I saw 20 dead children on the streets," said Zumeray, one of the refugees.
"Forty people were killed yesterday alone. I saw it with my own eyes. Some of them were burned by the bombs, others were crushed by the walls and roofs of their houses when they collapsed from the blast."

The relentless US pounding appears to have persuaded the Taliban forces to surrender..... provided the Northern Alliance fighters pledge not to kill the mostly Arab and Pakistani fighters among them.
The Taliban offer was conditional on UN representatives monitoring the surrender.

The still-unverified reports of the killing of civilians by US may further complicate attempts to flush out Taliban and al-Qa'ida fighters. The Taliban have also remained in control in their southern stronghold, Kandahar, while US jets continued to pound them from the skies. The bombing raids over the past two days were described as among the heaviest in 43 days of war.
.............
And it has continued every day since!!! Yesterday 15 innocents killed... 11 of them children.
Shame on all who support this evil !!!!
Shades of Spartacus here. Kill as many innocents as possible to make 'Spartacus' surrender..

Simon DHB,

'David Grime, the fount is pleased to offer help to help others raise their being...however it is not his job to provide the energy...you must do the work Grimey...otherwise these boards become simply jibber jabber...'

So you don't actually know then?

'However the fount is not without compassion...so...'

For compassion substitute sense.

'The Ronin waited....waited....waited.....--now think back..-.supposing after the twin tower attacks the USA....did nothing (apparently).....yet..,behind the scenes...planning, intelligence gathering...watching, learning....then ....years later a strike on the whole Al Queda network....take them out in one swift strike! '

So you would have attacked every nation with an AQ cell in it? Interesting foreign policy and one not designed to win you friends. I wouldn't have wanted to be your foreign secretary after that policy was enacted. In any case, that would have included Afghanistan, so you would have carried out even more extensive attacks. Nice!

Brian Blessed,

'I'm disabled due to a workplace accident that left me in a wheelchair so being able to deduce what people are from what they write hasn't worked for you has it?'

Not in the details but clearly I was right about your hang-up and bitterness about anybody who differs from you and your opinion, so not very far off in practice.

'I would like to be able to kick a wheelchair over and walk away from it - My own, but I can't due to severe spinal injuries.'

I could oblige for you, so long as you are in it!!

'I've deduced a lot from your writings on here though from my observations of you over the past couple of months.'

I think you'll find I beat you to this idea.

'A vain priggish man out of touch with reality who doesn't have any empathy and can't work out that most people other than his little clan on here laugh at his rantings'

Funny how some people can't comprehend that others may have different views from them. Not only that they can't comprehend that they might not be right either.

'A sad failure who haunts the politics forum 24/7 to mouth his Neo Liberal fantasies to anyone who drops in.'

Got any sensible examples to give or is your post all bluster and no substance?

I presume that ???? is a euphemism for a fantastic brain.

By living it. Seal breathing it. Smelling it. Touching it. Feeling it. Push ups. Cooking me dinner and eating it...

The moment is where I live, not in my parkhome. My eternity is in each moment I live.

When the electrical current stops in my brain that's it, no eternity.

As Freddie sang, these are the days of our lives...not then, not will be sometime but NOW.

You hit the nail on the head there, during the height of the invasion of Afghanistan in Nov 2001 the USAF had 10 B-52's in Diego Garcia with 5 B-52's & 1 B-1 over Afghanistan at any one time to cover the whole country. So no chance of "carpet bombing" anything, although these aircraft were known to drop sticks of bombs over Taliban trenchlines. The Soviet Union used Tu-22Backfires, Tu-26Blinders & Tu-16Badgers to area bomb parts of the Panjshir Valley the closest anyone has come to carpet bombing Afghanistan.
