Throughout history there have been situations where the presumed "overwhelming" evidence has been wrong. Copernicus and Gallileo for example.

I'm not saying Jimbo is right (and I think 99% of the time he is wrong), but unless you have absolutely conclusive evidence (which in some cases people do not) then there are always going to be differing perspectives I'm afraid.

The worst thing Jimbo does is in the aftermath of some tragedy when he starts positing what REALLY happened before the bodies are cold.

That pisses me off. The rest is mostly a sideshow

It's not that he offers alternative perspectives that's the problem, I'd welcome that. But that he will quickly establish a default position on something and then obsessively look for anything that backs up that position, regardless of the source or quality of the article...and then keep posting links over and over again. His latest one is ' Putin is a bogeyman created by the west' and we're going to be bombarded by this for the next year. Nothing will deflect him from this position.
I'm amused by Toby's argument though - 'he's good for BCB, even though I would never read him myself'. :lol:

Well, there's more than a grain of truth to the Putin stance I'm afraid. You only have to go and listen to Peter Hitchens on Russia (lots of videos on youtube), who I think is one of the most capable and rigorous journalists around, to see that the issues around Putin are not as morally clearcut as we would like to them to be.

I'm quite happy to consider different takes on this. I don't have a very high regard for Peter Hitchens myself though,he says a lot of stuff to get attention - a home counties Julie Burchill with an Oxbridge education.
Still, I would think the evidence that Putin is a dictator who has silenced any opposition ruthlessly ( just look at those who have been assassinated) and who will ride roughshod over any law, international or otherwise, pretty overwhelming.

No-one doubts that Putin operates a sinister tyranny. But remember that not everyone believes in human rights - Russia and China are two countries that clearly don't.

Yet we pander to Xi Jinping, who runs a country with arguably a far worse human rights record than Russia, but believe Putin to be a monster.

If Putin's Russia made lots of stuff that was sold in the West then I suspect we would treat him far more agreeably.

I will not be intimidated by the cuntish likes of you - INXS did have some good songs, 70s funk was not largely landfill, and Billy Joel's back catalogue definitely doesn't deserve critical reappraisal.


Not me mate, I’ll fight the cunt(s!) that did though.

What makes someone a cunt on BCB, then, in your eyes? Arrogance? A lack of humour? Pompousness? Long-windedness? Pretending to teach maths?

Or is it mostly just perception?

Absolutely, I wouldn't disagree with any of that - but that the west is often hypocritical and even duplicitous in its foreign policy doesn't change the essential nature of Putin's regime.

So for NATO (and all the important military defence spending and jobs that come with it) there needs to be a "bogeyman" for it to justify its existence.

NATO was created to meet the threat of the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact doesn't exist anymore so why does NATO?

In what way is the presumed fact (I'm not disputing it, the man is clearly a criminal) that someone is a tyrant in his country in any way the legitimate concern of any other state? You'd be hard pressed to find any nation in the world that is not ultimately ruled by criminal concerns dedicated to their own enrichment. And there is absolutely nothing any of us can do about this, so why spend a minute of our precious lives getting upset and ansty about it.
I don't believe Jimbo is always 'wrong', I just think he's driven up a bind alley and is determined that the best way out is by demolishing the buildings ahead of him by running at them head first
