These guys "seem" to be answering..."seem" to be arguing..."seem" to be making sense. They seem to be in control...seem to be confident...But it's Jeff and Lilly and Stella who are willing to go to them and carry the debate over on their turf. For all of their convictions and "passion", these guys seem singularly incapable of sustaining their point anywhere else but in the places they feel safe and comfortable in...they don't go looking to make their points stick anywhere, anytime. If you press them on it they'll say..."why should I bother, you obviously don't agree with me". Well if we're being badly treated by Kurds and the world doesn't know about us...wouldn't you EXPECT opposition" Wouldn't you EXPECT disagreement...wouldn't you want to go out and fight the good fight...and not "skim" once in a while...not require adequate protection before you feel comfortable fighting for the truth and your rights?
They seem to only get hot bothered against US...their own people, supposedly.
But they don't zero in on the point...they dance around it. Everyhting the guy DID say...he splits hairs over to make it seem he didn't say it. It gets tiring to keep focused...and the idea that this guy doesn't know what's going on, but only skims...is ludicrous.
Whatever the Kurds are doing, or are capable of doing...the north of Iraq is described by white people who've been there as a beautiful, peaceful well run place. When did the Brits do any better by us? Or the United States? Of course they're living on the edge of a knife...but they're doing it pretty well. What's our excuse here in America for 100 years and what's to show for it?
Who can't make excuses?
