At the very least it expedited it's exit.  War tends to be the fastest way to get results, even when it's not the original intent of the war.  

 

Maybe if diplomacy were faster, the world would be a better place.

Well said.

Makes sense he cut a deal and got life in return.

Still seems incredibly inane to give the murderer life for turning on the non violent accomplice and that person in turn getting death. 


In Topic: A Win for Net Neutrality

I understand that, I'm just saying the power to regulate is what gives the opportunity for other branches of government to one day over-see. Because the airwaves are already regulated by the FCC the government was able to create a situation where it was legal to control the airwaves to the degree we have now.

 

I'm not saying that IS what's going to happen, I'm saying that's what I fear MIGHT happen, and them holding over 300 pages of regulations in secret concerns me.

Your fear is very much understandable and is not at all unfounded. Everyone should be furious about the spying in a totally bipartisan way. That is, however is a completely separate issue from Net Neutrality. They can, will and have been spying on the internet and all other types of data for a long time now. They don't need the FFC classification to aid in that what so ever. It's a red herring just like this causing taxes and what not.

 

Again ask yourself who is screaming about this and why they are screaming and what they have to gain.

Again you interpret what I've said into what you mean. The War ended slavery. I've never said the War was intended to end slavery.

It ended slavery here. That much is true.

Less power (as stated by the fact sheet if you bothered to read it) than they have over mobile phones, and other utilities.

Which is unfortunate if you ask me.
