Observations can be selective. I can say the saem about you. I have never seen
you admit to being wrong either, despite the fact that I have observed you to
be wrong on many occasions.

Correction: without being given the opportunity to *verify* the facts myself.
I do not always have to see it myself. But I insist on there being a way for
independant verification of the facts and not having to resort to just take
someone's word for it.

And that, IMNSHO is not a flaw. If everyone would have the same attitude we
would not get involved in disasters like Iraq.

DS> His next biggest flaw is that he does not admit when he is wrong,

Even Careol confirms that you are wrong in that. Now will you admit it?

In those cases you just think I am wrong, but in reality you simply fail to
understand the issue.

Cheers, Michiel
