Max Boot is not a republican, no matter what he might say. He’s a center neocon.


Duly noted.

Any response to the thoughts he expresses. His words?

I'm going to apply the Vinny standard. Max Boot is discredited in my mind so I'm not going to evaluate what he might say. :)

Good one. I was wondering if you'd reply that way.

Except the "Vinny standard" is directed towards certain wacky conspiracy theories that are not infrequently brought here. Plus, brought from sources that are either fringe or obviously biased or both.

Dunno

I was going to create a thread, Where Tech Meets Politics, to make up for that post of Cortopassi’s that was deleted, but it looks like this thread serves that purpose just fine.
