Hello, OscarO,

We're glad you are here to learn and possibly edit. We ask that you read our Editor's Guide before you do.

Your chosen user name and/or initial edits don't inspire a great deal of confidence, however.
If you are here to argue, show us why we are wrong, introduce a liberal POV into articles, engage in time wasting talk, talk, talk, you have indeed come to the wrong place. We value conciseness, civility and productivity here.
Please consider opening your mind...the truth will set you free!

At the right are some useful links for you. You can include these links on your user page by putting "{{Useful links}}" on the page.

Thanks for reading, OscarO!


Please use talk pages before making major changes to articles, especially controversial ones. Don't remove info. --James Wilson 17:01, 29 September 2012 (EDT)

Libyan war, chronology.

Hey, I see you just added a citation to the Libyan War article from the 'new york times' about an ansar al-sharia leader talking to the paper from benghazi. I just looked through teh article and it looked to me as though they were talking about a day after the attack, which would not invalidate the other reports that say that they are no longer in the city, as the events those reports are referring to took place 10 days later. I might have missed something there though, but check it out anyway. thanks, Cmurphynz 23:50, 21 October 2012 (EDT)

The New York Times reported, as recently as only 10 days ago (Oct. 15, 2012), "...Ahmed Abu Khattala and Mohammed Ali Zahawi, fought alongside other commanders against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. Their group [Ansar al-Sharia] provides [present tense] social services and guards [again, present tense] a hospital. And they openly proselytize for their brand of puritanical Islam and political vision. " [1] OscarO 14:02, 28 October 2012 (EDT)
Ok, I see it now.Cmurphynz 20:22, 7 November 2012 (EST)

Edit overwrite mistake

Sorry about mistakenly overwriting your edit on Talk:Main Page. I was in the process of restoring it when I saw that you already restored it.--Andy Schlafly 19:02, 4 January 2013 (EST)

Thanks. I should have vetted that source better. It was tabloid, so I got sookered. OscarO 19:07, 4 January 2013 (EST)

Obama

I think it might be worth considering if we need two articles on Sequestration, or if we should use a merge and redirect scheme. I don't have a made up mind either way, but I thought it might be worth talking about. Your thoughts? Thanks, WilliamWB 15:25, 2 March 2013 (EST)

I'm beginning to loose count how many there are (see post at Talk/MP). Yes, it is a problem. The main sequestration article is in category legal terms, so fixing sequester & sequestration should begin there, w/redirs to a disambig, don't you think? OscarO 15:30, 2 March 2013 (EST)
I think the legal term usage is relatively unimportant and should be folded in to the article itself--my thought would be that the usage of the term is going to be limited to this event. I will participate in the other discussions. WilliamWB 18:23, 2 March 2013 (EST)
This current law has been around since 1986. Previously it was called impoundment. Both Reagan & Clinton wanted some form of line-item veto, and sequester is what they got. I'm not sure if both Reagan & Clinton used it, though. OscarO 03:39, 3 March 2013 (EST)

Recession of 2008

Please, why deleting so much in that article? --Joaquín Martínez 20:07, 23 March 2013 (EDT)

Which parts? There's very little actually removed; I've brought most upto date to sound more current, and added parts were it was only speculative as about what was likely to happen in the near future (the article has not been edited much since Nov, 2009). OscarO 20:12, 23 March 2013 (EDT)
Fine! Thanks. --Joaquín Martínez 20:21, 23 March 2013 (EDT)

Libyan Islamic Fighting Group

Hi I see you are writing on articles like War in Libya or Civil War in Syria. So can you expand the article Libyan Islamic Fighting Group please? --Alex00 12:03, 30 March 2013 (EDT)

I could try; The group is largely a creation of the US to mask it's real identities (Ansar al-Shariah, etc.) OscarO 12:06, 30 March 2013 (EDT)
