If the Israelis, woith all the firepower at thewir disposal, were actually
intending a Palestinian genocide instead of self-protection, the
Palestinian population would be shrinking, not growing, and the death
toll would be in the millions, not just three times the Israeli death toll.
I guess in Iraq, it's the Kurds' and the Shiites' fault, ayy? And what did
we do to the perpatrator of the Jewish genocide and his regime, and do
you consider that course of action wrong when applied to Saddam

Hermit seems constitutuonally unable to comprehend the meaning of
the word "disseminate", so I'll just have to repeat it to him until his straw
man scarecrow is burned to the ground and its ashes spread to the four
Main Entry: dis·sem·i·nate
Function: transitive verb
Inflected Form(s): -nat·ed; -nat·ing
Etymology: Latin disseminatus, past participle of disseminare,
from dis- + seminare to sow, from semin-, semen seed -- more at
1 : to spread abroad as though sowing seed <disseminate ideas>
2 : to disperse throughout
The US never spread viruses, spores or pathogens through the
Iraqi ecosystem. If Hermit has proof that the US did, I'd LOVE
for him to post it, and have repeatedly requested that he do so,
but, unable to fulfill such requests (since proof of something that
did not happen cannot exist), he chooses to ignore them, and
instead continues to shovel the same manure that we have come to
consider so typical of him. And now we are hearing the same
bullshit from him again.
