Response to "'As" repsonse to Ben

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Respose to JA":

You can enter your response as a follow-on comment under the original post -- this creates a coherent discussion thread that can be easily followed, and is a blogging standard for good reason -- it is sensible and facilitates a back and forth discussion. Why not do that?

Ben's response:

I try, and will continue to try, but there are times (For example: Right Now! ) when word-by word intersperal seems most appropriate.

There is no reason why you cannot do the same 'interspersing' in the comment section.

What you can also do to improve your blog: when asked to prove your assertions by either providing a few simple facts (with references), or by presenting a logical, convincing counterargument, either 1) do that, or 2) withdraw the assertion.

In relation to this, recently I asked you to do two things: 1) give an argument as to why unconditional US support for Israel (e.g. repeatedly blocking UN resolutions condemning Israel for the careless killing of Palestinian civilians -- but this is only one aspect) is in the best interest of the US, and 2) prove your assertion that the children of 'neocons' who promoted the Iraq war serve in the military.

So far you have done neither.

You can make a step toward recovering/boosting your intellectual integrity by publishing this comment and doing those two things.
