    Yeah, I have seen it Dennis. I always follow news constantly, but just decided that too many people feel hostile about discussing things other then Tim's Beard or other deep, deep issues.

    That's OK too, there are lot' of places to discuss political issues. And yes I think Hillary has a BIG set. LMAO, and good for her, as PEACE is not some kind of gift for the Palestinians and will benefit Israeli's as well.

    She definitely has the nuts in the Clinton family, but that's not a compliment. She made a public statement dressing-down Netanyahu, but it doesn't matter. He's going to continue to build, and not back down, and the dems in Washington will have no choice but to eat Obama's words and hers, and we'll continue to back Israel. Always have, always will. They're the least of all the evils in that part of the world.

    I do not think Netanyahu gives a rats behind what Hillary or Barry think.

    Heh, pretty much this.

    Speaking of Hillary, if you haven't seen this gem from The Onion, it is downright hysterical:

    I'm not a Hilary fan but I think it takes a lot of balls to step up to any President and straight scold them like a kid. Politics have become to "politically correct" and I think more leaders need to be slapped by their mommas.

    I'm no expert on the middle east by any means, but in my opinion, I think telling Israel to back off in any way is like telling Jerry to just let Tom catch him. This has been going on since the 40s. Israel has been the target of like 6 or 7 countries since then. As far as a "War on Terror" is concerned, they've been involved since the beginning. Our foreign policy concerning Israel should be simple: We back whatever they do, because if anyone knows what's going on in the ME, it's them. Who do you think gives us the bulk of our intelligence on terrorism???

    I would agree with that too.

    The middle east is a hornets nest. I feel that the US should get their own house in Order before moving onto other countries. Back after WWII we had some weight, but anymore this country really needs to find itself. Then maybe we can work with others.

    Been that way for some time now. I wish the US would take the path that Canada did, stay out of the world agenda. I don't know how many countries are PO'd with Canada... Well I know a few are after the Hockey Upset!!!!

    If the U.S. isn't capable of managing domestic and foreign relations at the same time, we're in deep ***. That's what super powers do. I, for one, think we are capable with the right leadership (yes, Laker, I'm going back several presidencies, and not just talking about the current one).

    I have seen first hand how the Israelis treat treat the Palestinians. I am no fan of their government. The west bank is occupied territory, any building of settlements is against all international law. The whole intention of the Israeli government is to occupy all the desireable territory in the west bank before the world community rises up and stops it. A 'fait accompli' so to speak. The Israelis have all the power and most of the guns and the Palestinians are 'acting out' in desperatiion because they have nothing to lose. Read your history of 1948 - 49.

    Well not in your or even my lifetime... but I have read about them.

    Then again I have also read about Hobbits and such... don't believe in them, but.

    Well now there you go TatuajeVI, you've ruined it for me ! Now I will have to go back and question everything. Santa, The Easter Bunny, Cheech & Chong even. I'm so depressed. LOL
