63. regurgitate--that's a figure of speech
Like when you repeat the phrases and arguments somebody else has presented, and there's no sign you gave any thought to them or even to repeating them. Like it was involuntary, you know.

I take as a sign that you were regurgitating Mr. Pilger's article the fact that you repeated his list of so-called questions--really, it's quite a ridiculuous assortment of charges to level at Senator Kerry, so ridiculuous I can't imagine any other explanation for your posting it than that you read Mr. Pilger's ignorant bullshit and repeated it without thinking or looking into it on your own, i.e., you regurgitated it.

Now, I do happen to have opinions on, for instance, landmines. Happy to share those, and to discuss the topic with people who seriously care about it. But if you were sincere about it, you wouldn't be here saying all this crap about what is it PPI and all that irrelevant crap, because there are real present day issues having to do with landmines, sides that have been taken, actions that need to be taken, and so forth.

I mention google for the sake of others who are reading this and aren't keeping up with the icbl or the vvaf campaign or the friends or others, well, then, they can google and learn for themselves. And it ought to be too obvious to mention, I'll admit, but it's the kind of confusion one might expect when one repeats bullshit propaganda and doesn't bother doing even the most rudimentary googling.
