I've got plenty of evidence that you're harboring anti-Arab prejudices.
It's a well-known fact by everyone here at Segue.
It's not up to me to provide any "smoking gun" evidence though.
It's up to you to prove that you're not anti-Arab.
Your pattern of denial is really proof enough though that you're trying to hide your prejudices.
Very smart. Very witty. But the comparison is fatally flawed.
The UN knows Saddam has used weapons of mass destruction in the past. The UN has the first proof of the existence of such weapons and of the willingness to use them. If you want to make an analogy to legal process and the burden of proof, I suggest the following is imperfect but more accurate:
"We know Saddam is dangerous. He has done this before. We have convicted him and locked him up (sanctions). Now, the onus is on him to show that he is no longer a danger to the community, otherwise we will make sure he is not let out. EVER."
'fan and Tigerman,
Who said anything about Saddam Hussein? I was just talking about Tigerman and his anti-Arab prejudices. Now that you mention it though I see the connection.
BTW, I'm getting sick and tired of all the lies and deception. If Tigerman doesn't start cooperating soon about coming clean about his prejudices and the way they're polluting the Segue community I'm going to be forced to take action.
I'll have to go to the moderators and have him banned. If the moderators prove too impotent to do the right thing, I'll have to take unilateral action in conjunction with my allies Vincent, Sandman and Poagao.
Vincent, of course, will do the right think purely out of conviction. Sandman will cooperate because I'll have bribed him with a good bottle of homeboy Scotch. Poagao, who knows where all the wires are plugged in, will cooperate because I'll make sure he gets his US passport back.
Time is running out, Tigerman. It's up to you.
(BTW, Tigerman, I agree whole-heartedly with every point you made in rebuttal to the rules of evidence/due process accusation I made against you.}
