Yes, Correll told us what he believed to be true about his position at the time, admitting that war was not necessary if certain conditions were met - and peacefully disarming Iraq was one of those conditions. 21SEP12-POST#554

NOT doing it would have been fine with me too. 21MAY22-POST#1013

NFBW wrote: Of course I understand that the (peaceful disarming Iraq) scenario that Correll created in his very own hypothetical question, did not happen. but Correll cannot ethically change his answer to the very hypothetical question he provided because he is no longer comfortable with the fact that his answer exposes a huge weakness in the BIG LIE regarding Iraq that Correll has been spreading going on for nearly to two decades. 21SEP12-POST#554
NFBW wrote: So with that explanation, I must ask, if Correll wishes to change his answer from “ I would have been fine with that” to “ I would have NOT have been fine with that” Correll should man up and say it instead of pissing and moaning about what others do not understand. 21SEP12-POST#564
You need to clarify what you think is the conflict in my words, down to two sentences. Your current style gives you too much wiggle room to sleaze away when I crush your stupid point.
I will not respond to a point you have not clearly made. I've made that mistake with lefties before. You people are too dishonest and without shame.
