Of the weapons that were confiscated it did.

Which. Is. What. She. Said.

Geez.

When the thing that happens is the thing she said happened that's the opposite of a lie. You appear to be confused.

No. She said the threat was removed. It wasn't. Hence she lied.

We can of course go on forever on this. Won't change anything. I believe she stated inaccuracies with the intent to deceive. Simply stated she lied. You don't believe that.

Agree to disagree? Either way, TTFN.

For. Fuck's. Sake.

She said the threat of the KNOWN WEAPONS was removed. To repeat, you do not get to just declare that she only said the words you decided to underline in her speech, then state that because those specific words contain no qualifications it was an unqualified statement just because you deliberately chose not to underline the part where she qualified and gave scope to the statement!



Let's try that approach on your posts Peter? Shall we try that?

If public sector employment and higher taxation leads to prosperity, the USSR would have spent the US into oblivion? That didn't happen. The USSR is part of the ash-heap of history.

Kennedy and Reagan both saw revenue increases by cutting the marginal income tax rates.

FDR invested in true economic activity generating projects. No Solyndras in the New Deal. Roads, energy generating dams and other investments that facilitates more activity beyond the building of the project.

Pardon me, but you can believe what you want. Your data does not show what you think it does. So we return to POVs telling the tale


Peter Z is now on the record, "public sector employment and higher taxation leads to prosperity"


That's what you said, right? Word for word? I underlined it and everything... and as we all know from reading your posts here, when you underline something any other words or sentences that accompanied those underlined words cease to matter. Just like Rice stating ONE SENTENCE before your underlined statement that she was referring to the removal of the KNOWN chemical weapons doesn't matter because you didn't choose to underline that bit. And we must *only* read the literal meaning of the underlined words in isolation with no reference to surrounding context or modifiers.


RIGHT?

http://www.vox.com/2017/4/12/15279654/t ... 10-minutes

Four quick observations about this:

*Trump thought China could fix North Korea until the Chinese president politely informed him that North Korea is in fact complicated.

*Trump seems to have required the leader of China to explain basic facts to him that he could have Googled, or at least asked one of the many US government North Korea experts about.

*Trump came to a profound realization about one of the most dangerous conflicts on earth after a 10-minute conversation.

*Trump is getting his information about East Asian affairs from the leader of America’s largest rival in the region.




Ugh....President of the United State ladies and gentlemen. Amateur hour continues...t this is just embarrassing.

Well of course. "Precursor" is a rather stupid term really, as pretty much anything CAN be used for "nefarious purposes".

Iraq was unable to rebuild its sewage systems and water supply system after 1991, because "oh dear those metal pipes could be used to make nuclear weapons"...
Yes, because thats obviously the first choice for how to use metal pipes. :roll:
And that was just one of the more stupid "restricted precursor items".

The powerful armada that President Trump was sending to the Korean Peninsula to send a message? Actually went to the north coast of Australia.

Well it's a message of sorts.
