If that's true, then there should be no desire by anyone to argue the case
here. But I'm not going to presume that I'm 100% correct in my
understanding of the issues. The problem is that everyone's been arguing in
circles instead of tackling the salient points for why I don't think there's
any other choice to be made here.

I don't get this. If I'm correct, then you have no reason to be irritated.
If I'm not, then you should be able to prove me wrong, so there should be no
reason for irritation there either.
