You love it.  You know you love it.


"Oh dear," indeed.

"Like" a hero?


As far as I understand it, the worst they could do would be to badmouth you to your new job.  But that seems fruitless.

It occurs to me that you might have mentioned a page or so back that your new job was lined up.  I know you want to leave your compatriots in a decent state, but if what you're saying is true, you should probably tell them to jump ship now, along with yourself.

Sounds like you're in the right frame of mind to work up a Batman Gambit.

Yeah.  While of course, those same borders hamper US efforts to fight ISIS.

I'm also amused at the failure of the nonstop news cycle to realise that ISIS are fighting an insurgent war, and thus will not play to their timetable.  Go back a few months, and you'll see more than a few writers prophesying the decline and death of Islamic State, how they were on the defensive and failing to hold territory.

They don't fucking get it.  ISIS is Al-Qaeda in Iraq.  It took a beating from the US and Awakening Councils, it retreated into the Iraqi desert and licked its wounds before striking again.  It took Fallujah, then feigned weakness while building up sufficient forces for the Mosul offensive last summer.  And here, yet again, they fell back, adapted their tactics and struck where their enemies were weak.  Because they're insurgents.

Is there some financial interest involved why no reporter/"expert" mentions this?

New motives brought to light.  Interesting.

Sounds like they have different ideas what the "borders" should be.

Nigel, I'm really sorry to hear about your dog.  I hope there's not much pain.

No installment on Dirtbags today.  I am too pissed off with HR at the moment to write.

I'm guessing they wussed out, sided with Lillie.

Well, the entire premise of the OP seems to be "look at this lady; she's doin' it wrong" rather than making its own standalone argument. It's a reaction to someone else's complaint, essentially. And then you get the "well history's in the past" argument. So I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to be getting as the takeway. 

That women are like Jerry Seinfeld's parents.

Gracious, no.  You gave him a chance.
