You know, her sentence you unsubbed her for may not have had much value. 
It may have even been flamebait. But you're assuming too much if you 
think pointing out more worthy targets means implying people are making 
"common cause with imperialists."

You try to end a conversation so as not to drive her away like she 
apparently has been from somewhere else by someone, she says you're the 
one acting like him, you unsub her. I notice you never even responded to 

Alright, I know that was a really, really cheap shot. But seriously, 
sometimes I don't get you, Lou. You should note that there was no actual 
animosity in this thread until this. Don't you usually issue warnings? 
Don't you usually just suspend posting rights for a week or whatever?

I, like most others it seems, don't agree with her take on Iran. But I 
loved hearing it expressed and debated. Our discussions on Iran will be 
half as interesting or worthwhile if she's driven away for good.

At the least, I think you should offer her an official invitation to rejoin.

With as little personal animosity as possible towards Louis and all of 
God's creatures,
