No, I did to show that I'm speaking from experience and not just stating uninformed opinion or parroting conspiracy theories. If you consider that engaging in a pissing contest then so be it.
You cant really believe that I am trying to bring down the military?
You are saying that you believe the U.S. military is incompetent enough to shoot down a civilian airliner and devious enough to deny it and cover it up. That they are, in fact, cold-blooded murderers. What would you call that?
No one is accusing the military of stupidity. No one is accusing the military of targeting TWA 800. Sanders is saying that the military was targeting a terrorist-operated airplane that was threatening TWA 800. Mistakes and collateral damage are a fact of life, even when you think you have a clean shot.
Shooting two missiles at a small airplane in the middle of the busiest air corridor in the world is stupidity. The whole scenario is insane. And one would have to believe the military brass was insane if you honestly believe they would do that.
What about the Iranian airbus that the US Navy shot down during the Gulf War.
The Navy didn't deny that or try and cover it up. You're claiming that they did with a U.S. airliner and U.S. civilians.
Also, under the right circumstances, the US military would target a US civilian airliner as they certainly would have done on 9/11.
With an Air Force jet at close range. Not with a navy ship hundreds of miles away.
No one is saying the military is evil. Sanders, and those who believe his theory, accuse the Clinton administration of the cover up, not the military.
Oh give me a break! Clinton covered it up but not the military???? How could Clinton pull something like that off without the help of the military? You are making less and less sense as you go along.
You are over the top. How does anything I have said in this thread lead you to infer that I believe the military is committing murder and atrocities in Iraq? Now, that is a non-sequitur.
You say that you believe that they U.S. military is capable of killing U.S. civilians and covering it up, but then suggest that they would never, ever do the same in Iraq? Please!
OK, what do you think happened to TWA 800?
