Is this not the guy who was denied a visa by the State Dept last year and for which they received a lot of flack? If so, there is probably more to the visit than just a college invitation.subsquid said:These are people who will attend a lecture by the President of Iran at Columbia and believe that they are taking part in the excercise of free speech.
Then you shouldn't be publishing articles that make so many sweeping accusations about things she knows nothing about.If one is not brought up in a military environment it is entirely possible to have no knowlegde of the culture or way of life.
I'd say she got a good and well-deserved dose of both.Don't condemn - educate.
Then she was extremely ignorant to publish an article with the title: The Truth About The Academies. Perhaps a better title would have been "The ignorance of my mother and myself and why we are against military academies".If one is not brought up in a military environment it is entirely possible to have no knowlegde of the culture or way of life.
Actually, she would be about 4 years OLDER than her brother.If she is 23 then she must be about 4 years younger than her brother - was she involved in his college decision - NO! Should she have been? NO! Did she even think about it? Probably NOT!
Then she was extremely ignorant to publish an article with the title: The Truth About The Academies.
Why? She discovered it. She said at the end the Naval Academy is first and foremost the military. She just discovered it a little later than her brother did.
Whooooppppppppssss!!!!!!!!! Yep that is what I meant - 4 years is a long time in sibling life. She had moved out and on when he was deciding.Actually, she would be about 4 years OLDER than her brother. ;
No one is calling for a fatwah (no one with a brain, anyway). All I'm saying is that she's a moron and deserves to be called one.But we live in a country where there is no 'fatwa' on her head - no one is out to assassinate her - and she can walk the streets knowing she is free from arrest for her views. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
