what a suprise
 
2002-04-04 11:49:03 PM  
In other news, Israel ignores them and keeps on doing what it was doing before.

This is what happens when two distinct groups don't get enough sex. Both just need handjobs.

Including your friendly neighborhood terrorist sponsor, Syria.

And I am sure Isreal is shaking in their boots over this one.
 
2002-04-04 11:52:26 PM  
What's the difference between Israel and your father?
Israel pulled out.

I'm wondering if the U.S. is being spread to thin in the east.
 
2002-04-04 11:54:18 PM  
It's bullshiat, utter bullshiat.
Isreal is going to tell the UN to go fucl< themselves and rightly so.
 
2002-04-04 11:54:18 PM  
Who would've thought that I'd actually support something that the Bush administration has come out (albeit tentatively) in favor of? Wow.

I'll meet you all at the Angelina Jolie thread when u've finished arguing... Oh wait, that might take a while...like, a thousand years?

In other news the four horsemen were seen saddling up their horse for a leisurly ride through the Middle East.

Wait..I need popcorn..brb

Sounds like the beginning of the end - that Time article is right on the money so far...
 
2002-04-04 11:57:36 PM  
Is it too early to send in a few "peace keeping" nukes to calm things down?
 
2002-04-04 11:57:37 PM  
The only way we can solve this is thing is to have Israel, get the fark out of the middle east.
 
2002-04-04 11:57:58 PM  
in 1947/48, the UN passed a resolution legalizing the existence of Israel as a sovereign nation, INCLUDING the region known today as the West Bank.

In 1948 the Arabs invaded Israel and occupied the West Bank, and called themselves Palestinians.

Not happy enough with that, and wanting to exterminate the Jews as a people, they invaded Israel time and again. Come 1967: the Arabs attacked Israel without provocation. Israel said enough is enough, and whooped some Arab ass. Ditto again in 1973. Fvck the Arabs; as long as they don't recognize the Jews' basic right to live, I hope Israel bombs their neighbors back to the stone age.

Check this shiat out! We should fully support Israel. If we got pissed off enough about two measly buildings and essentially wiped Afghanistan off the face of the map, why should we not also encourage Israel to protect themselves in the face of DAILY military and terrorist attacks from their neighbors?

Sheesh. Reality check, people! Think! Don't swallow the liberal tripe that CNN has been feeding you. Why is it when someone attacks America, the person is a terrorist, but if they attack Israel they're called "militants?!" What the fvck?!

$.02 and then some. . .
 
2002-04-04 11:58:15 PM  
Or wipe out the Palestinians...
 
2002-04-04 11:58:30 PM  
My theory on how to bring peace to the Middle East: Bacon, the forbidden food. Think about it, we Americans eat lots of bacon, and look at us, we'd rather sue over Toy Yodas and hot coffee than fight.
 
2002-04-04 11:58:59 PM  
I don't think Israel versus the world is going to result in the Apocalypse, Code_Archaeologist, particularly since Israel doesn't have nuclear weapons. What's going to happen is either the US is going to return to their traditional stance once a few token expressions of peace are made, or--and this is a longshot--Israel might actually buckle to international pressure. Who knows how they're going to behave if we're not on their side?
 
2002-04-04 11:59:03 PM  
"hey Ariel, it's ol' George here. I was wondering if you could maybe stop using tanks to shoot ambulances?"
 
2002-04-04 11:59:44 PM  
This thread is going to be a nuclear flamewar. *grabs popcorn*
 
2002-04-05 12:00:52 AM  
Too bad that Israel is a sovereign nation and does not have to do what the UN tells it to do. Did the UN pass a resolution that says that Palestinians should stop killing innocent Israeli civilians?
 
2002-04-05 12:01:07 AM  
Kim Vette, you got it right. If it were the US being attacked on a daily basis by terrorists, that pitiful stretch of desert inhabited by "Palestinians" would be a glass lake by now and any survivors would be glowing in the dark.
 
2002-04-05 12:02:51 AM  
He also condemned recent suicide bombings and said those who have carried them out "are not martyrs, they are murderers."

I hate to open up a can of worms here, but Bush apparently uses a different English language than the rest of us, a language where words like "martyr" and "coward" mean different things...

martyr: a person who sacrifices something of great value and especially life itself for the sake of principle
(from www.m-w.com)

Murderers, yes, but also martyrs. I know Bush doesn't want to admit that, but it's true. Call it nitpicking if you will, but it shows how the government is subtle in its use of propaganda.

That being said, I don't condone suicide bombing or any other acts of terror, and I pray that the situation will be defused quickly.

If I have angered anyone in any way with these comments, please feel free to flame my butt to a crisp. I won't mind, and if it helps you deal with the situation I'll be glad to help.

"Sheesh. Reality check, people! Think! Don't swallow the liberal tripe that CNN has been feeding you."

It seems to me that CNN has pretty much toed the administration's line since 9/11. The government IS behind this plan, after all; the US representative to the UN DID vote for it. Do you think Bush and company have been duped by the evil liberal news media?
 
2002-04-05 12:03:28 AM  
I side with the "they can't seem to kill each other fast enough, so let's finish the job" party.
 
2002-04-05 12:04:08 AM  
Prinzeugen I do not actually think that this will end the world... but you have to remember... people did not think much at first of the assination of Archduke Ferdinand... and that led to WWI. All the ingredients are there to spark WWIII, all it will take is the right spark to set it all off.
 
2002-04-05 12:04:49 AM  
when will we put some trade embargo's on israel. i can't wait.
 
2002-04-05 12:04:56 AM  
Send this guy. He looks like a nice negotiator.

2002-04-05 12:05:43 AM  
WWIII wont mean shiat unless china or n. korea launch... Only real nuclear threat..

China has firm no use-policy.. They wouldn't risk it..

N. Korea doesn't have the missle capabilites of launching an effective nuclear offensive agaisnt us..

Were pretty much safe..
 
2002-04-05 12:06:42 AM  
particularly since Israel doesn't have nuclear weapons

Wrong.
 
2002-04-05 12:07:42 AM  
Why is it that when Saddam ignores a UN resolution we bomb and sanction his country but when Israel ignores numerous resolutions over many years we continue to financially assist them toward breaking the resolutions?
 
2002-04-05 12:07:49 AM  
Lemme see...


Palestinians attack Isreal
Isreal attacks Palestinians
Arabs attack Isreal
India attacks Pakastan
India attacks China
China attacks India
China attacks Taiwan
US attacks Arabs
Africans attack Africans (nothing new)
Russia attacks China?

Sounds like WW3 to me. Maybe ww4 as well.

KimVette, Doofus:

If we got pissed off enough about two measly buildings and essentially wiped Afghanistan off the face of the map, why should we not also encourage Israel to protect themselves in the face of DAILY military and terrorist attacks from their neighbors?

By the same token, why should we do to israel what we did to afghanistan for state sponsored terrorism such as:
1. political assasinations
2. constant distruction of OCCUPIED palestinian homes
3. the murder of over 1300 palestinians over the last year

Things will degrade as both uncivilized "states" continue blowing eachother up until a peace-keeping force is introduced by the UN. Serves both of 'em right.
 
2002-04-05 12:08:27 AM  
Isreal does have nuclear capabilites....
 
2002-04-05 12:08:59 AM  
No kidding, Gelatinous.

Israel IS a nuclear power: many sources cite it as such, Israel has confirmed it, and they have publicly stated that any chemical attacks coming from any of the Arab states will be met with a bomb.

Times are going to be interesting. Pop some popcorn, turn on the telly, sit back, and watch the fireworks. Oh, and stock up on gasoline and diesel while you're at it. :-/
 
2002-04-05 12:09:17 AM  
Smirnoffice - because UN resolutions are meaningless...
 
2002-04-05 12:09:23 AM  
I know nothing, but I can't understand why it seems almost easy for terrorists to sneak in Israel. Almost everyday something (someone) is exploding in Israel. Aren't the borders locked ?
 
2002-04-05 12:09:39 AM  
And where do you get the India/China/Taiwan connection.. That chain of events is incredibly unlikely...
 
2002-04-05 12:09:52 AM  
Woops, forgot to say:

US intervenes in Chino-Taiwanese war
US intervenes in Indo-Pakastani War
US intervense in Arab-Isreali War
*****************************************
After the smoke clears, South American and Australia take over the world.

Tetrasutra -- worst case senario we bomb the hell outta everyone and are left the only ones standing.. no way america will ever be defeated..

Prinzeugen: The Israelis DO have nukes and intend to use them if the Arabs screw them up too much. So if they begin losing in a big way, several cities get reduced to radioactive charcoal. Check http://www.fas.org for more info
