Not if you don't stop calling me "bare", lol.
I try not to project that "if you haven't been there then" attitude, but when people dismiss those that have with prejudice, it is frustrating.
I like facts, I am prone to editorialise and I know it. But my editorials are based on facts. I have read quite a bit about the ME and have been there. I have seen the mess. It is more then just scary, it is a hooror show of epic preportions.
My aggression stems from my having seen enough death and mutilation that I am almost will to anniolate entire regions to end it.
That is like where some of you get a sence of fascism in my posts or rhetoric.
I'm no one special, I'm just some one tired of it all. I can not begin to explain the suffering and deprivation I have seen. You would likely not believe me if I told you anyways. It is that horrorific.
But I call men brother that serve in the IDF, US Army/Navy/Marines, the British Army and Navy. Most of whom I have kept in touch with over the years. So I tend to defend with my own bias. Golan Hieghts was an eye opener.
So you may have to bear with me if I seem a tad aggressive in my defences of places I have been and the people I call brothers.
