I am not offended by Hoplite. I have absolutely no insecurities about my intelligence.
Hopeless just greased himself down, slid out of answering the question and hoped no one would notice.
Answer the question Hopeless. What is your angle and what is your stake in all of this?
No angle other than ensuring the facts get their fair shot, and my stake is simply continuing the thread of what initially brought me onto Freerepublic in the first place - taking issue with Serbs who bitch about how America is wronging them, instead of honestly looking at the reasons behind America's treatment of Serbia.
Not as interesting as your postulated hypotheticals, I know, but then it all comes back to what I said about you living in a fantasy world.
