John on the Sunset Coast BS: The crisis of capitalism in the USA (214* d) RE: BS: The crisis of capitalism in the USA 05 Jul 14

Your citation of my post, while accurate, provides no context. It was written when the thread was new (June 25), and about the crisis of turning off water to Detroit's poor, despite the over broad title posted by Mr. Bridge. Someone who has not read the thread from the start, and owing to the phenomenon of massive thread creep might not know that.

Your response, today, to my comment, conflates this thread with with the many anti-Israel threads you've posted to previously, because all of your supposed countries dictating to the U.S. are Arab nations, except Israel...which is neither a third world nation, nor a dictatorship except in your mind. I had been thinking in terms of countries primarily in north and central Africa, as well as some of Israel's (a 2nd World country by the way) neighbors, which actually are dictatorships. I was not thinking of in terms of international politics, but in having them interfere in Detroit's local problems.

Now everybody, especially you, has context for my comment and your response, even if they have not read the early posts at this thread.
