It's old public schoolboy slang.  In the all-male, confined, frustrated world of British public schools, sexual tension runs high.  Certain boys will make themselves available for "relief" purposes.  An unofficial grading system of the charms of these boys has been established over the last 200 years.  At the top of the list, are the gold-bottomed lads, followed by the silver-bottoms, and so on.

No, no, I'm pretty sure we're okay with it. No too many of of us are all that excited about the situation, either.

Did they release solid evidence yet that confirms that Assad's regime ordered the chemical attack?

DoomPaul: Did they release solid evidence yet that confirms that Assad's regime ordered the chemical attack?


It depends on what you pretend to mean by "solid evidence". You sound like a Creationist pretending two hundred years of science is wrong because we don't have photos of dinosaurs from 50 million years ago.
 
2013-08-31 11:56:05 AM  
I understand that people are fearful of stoking additional flames in the Middle East if the US sends cruise missiles into Syria. What I don't understand is how people can keep comparing this to 2003 with a straight face. In 2003, you had Colin Powell presenting bogus intelligence before the Security Council. In 2013, you have unequivocal evidence of thousands of dead, gassed Syrians-- hundreds of them babies and children. That just screams apples and oranges to me.

And maybe this betrays my ignorance of the Libyan situation a few years ago, but where was all this hand-wringing when we sent missile strikes there just before Qadaffi was toppled in 2011?
 
2013-08-31 11:58:46 AM  

DoomPaul: Did they release solid evidence yet that confirms that Assad's regime ordered the chemical attack?


As I understand it, the US government has released numerous bits of evidence that would indicate that the CW attack was launched from a Syrian government site, with government knowing before hand, complete with calls reminding them to have their CW gear ready.

Whether you believe that information or not is entirely up to you.  The UN report won't be ready for a few weeks yet.

Who cares? Saddam had no anthrax or nuclear weapons, even though Colin Powell lied to the UN about it. The British still invaded Iraq.

The MPs are finally figuring out that invading a country based on lies might not be the best thing to do.

If only the US Congress had the stones to do that.

Syria has been a target for US and foreign intelligence for a long time.  They probably know who gave the order, who carried it out, what he eats for breakfast, who he cheats on his wife with, and the serial numbers of the rounds fired.

I don't think anyone is planing that.  it's more like the way Clinton dealt with this sort of thing, using cruise missiles.

The content of Apikoros's post could lead someone gullible to believe that he had inside information that he wasn't sharing with us.  I was just making sure.

If it was a Republican administration wanting to invade an oil rich nation on the pretense of imminent WMD production, you might have a point.

As it is, it's a Democratic administration wanting to shoot some missiles at a Russian proxy nation with confirmed WMD possession and usage.

I realize that people really really really want this to be like the lead-up to Iraq but I swear to god, life is way way way more complicated than that.

And I really want people to try and grasp this last point here:

We already know that CWs have been used, we're just trying to determine who to blow up for using those CWs.
