When is a first strike not a first strike?
When it's Anticipatory Retaliation.

Alert - Scribbletry at Winds O' Change

Bravo Romeo Delta

Anticipatory Retaliation is starting to take command of other launch centers. Well, at least one launch from a different silo, but hey, who's counting?

That's right kids, I've done my first guest bloggery at Winds Of Change.

It seems that there's something about lack of sleep and heavy work loads that cultivates one's fisking ability.

Go check it out. And just leave the negative comments here, and the positive ones over there. :)

UPDATE: Skip the trip over to Winds of Change. Now that I've gotten away from the post itself, it is pretty clearly below par - even by my lousy standards - far too much snark, not enough substance. I'll let you all know when we hit something of a bit higher grade.

I read the original article, your fisking and all the responses. Why lighten the tone when replying to a propaganda piece? The pseudo intellectual posturing of several of the commentators at WoC is numbingly boring. To get through it requires the patience of a sparrow pecking at a road apple. It's just not worth pecking through all the crap to get to the seed.

There were several points that you made in your replies in the comments section that were excellent. I am still unsure as to the ambiguity of the status of the insurgents the GC. I believe that it is purposefully vague in order to allow wide discretion to the occupying force. I wish there were more discussion and debate occuring concerning status. Clarity would be helpful when the anti-US propagandists start their "violation of the GC" spew.
