Why are people saying that the recent military operations didn't do anything? (Scroll down to Wendsday post. Unfortunatly, Kaus doesn't have Permalinks.) I know that there have been two suicide bombers in a row just two days ago. However, did anybody other than me notice that these had taken place during a time where the military operations were not in full force? Let's use logic. The argument here is that if one performs action A in order to prevent action B from stopping, but Action B takes place a little while later than Action A, than Action A did not do anything. However, one ignores the fact that while performing action A, action B did not happen. When a different option than Action A is used, such as C, Action B took place during it, than it is obvious that Action A is effective. Replace A with military operations, B with suicide bombings, and C with talks with the Palestinians, and there you have it. I chose to use the tags so that the logic would be unclouded by any supposed bias. Any rebuttals? I'd love to hear one.
I'm back! As a special gift to all of my readers, (all .235 of you), I'm providing special evidence to prove that Lileks is; A. Proof of a loving and kind God, B. Proof of Lileks descent from divine interaction, C. Is God, or D. is a superman. Choose the one that you can agree with. Have fun!
