As to your first point, Shodan all the sophisticated machinations at your command will not erase the simple fact that a majority by half a million Americans prefered Gore to Bush. You have your reasons, I am sure, for ignoring this unpleasant fact.
As to your second…I wouldn’t have thought it possible you could make a weaker point, yet, you surprise me. As has been laboriously pointed out to you, the nature of a cease-fire violation lies entirely with the authority of the UN. The US is a member of the UN, not the reverse. The US can no more make decisions for the UN than Tennesee can declare war on Canada on behalf of the US. But that is a legal nicety, rather like your charming devotion to the Electoral College. There is no reason why it should trouble you any more than it troubles Our Churchill.
As to the clarity of the facts in the matter, one has to wonder: if the truth is apparent, so easily accessible, why must lies be called out to support an entirely irrefutable case? You have followed along with us, you know what I mean. Time and again, Our Leader has looked us right in the eye and told us whoppers. Reports that never existed, testimony from defectors edited to fit the preferred slant.
If the truth is so available, why does he need lies and half-truths?
(I apologize for a case of hijackitis. But I couldn’t let that stand.)
