Can you imagine how the US would respond if, say, Mexico did this to Texas? Hell, just 1 rocket ... that maybe broke some cattle rancher's arm and pre-cooked a few of his bovine friends. Yet alone 169 impacting USA soil. And yet people still balk at Israel's relatively subdued retaliation as being over the top? Amazing. If that happened here, the end result would probably be a few thousand square miles of new USA soil before it was all over. "Even Newer Mexico", the 51st state.

That's because they weren't considered Jews until after Moses marched them around the desert for a generation.



I'm still baffled that after 40 years of hanging out in a desert, (arguably one of the shiattiest types of places on the planet) they gave up and decided to just stay in a desert from then on.

If I was given 40 years to walk anywhere I wanted I could probably choose just about any place in Africa, Europe or Asia. There are some seriously lush, fertile, wonderfully beautiful places in all of those continents. But Moses said "Eff it, a desert is good enough for me." What a dumbass.

Why Would I Read the Article: But what's the latest with Patraeus?

He evidently changed the spelling of his name, for one....


I did a Google search and found 3.3 million hits for Patraeus, so I vote we let Subby off the hook on misspelling it.

Not Subby.

Although I am a bit peeved that three point three million hits with the wrong spelling makes it really hard for me to make a joke about Patraeus being dead since 200 B.C or whatever.

At the moment many of the conspiry theorists are trying to work up conspiracies based on the Latin-sounding name of Petraeus, some connecting it to Saint Malachy's prophecies of the Last Pope (No. 112 in his list of "future" popes), who would be Petrus Romanus (Pope Peter the Roman).

Since Benedict XVI is Pope 111 in this list, we've got one more to go, and probably sooner rather than later, seeing as Benedictus is 86 years old and looking kinda ghoulish.

Not that I believe in the prophecies of Saint Malachy, who I often call Saint Malarky before I can think of his name. He's Irish, too, so Saint Malarky is appropriate I think. There needs to be at least one Saint Malarky in the Church Calendar somewhere, even if he is only unofficial.

I nominate Saint Malarky as the Patron Saint of Liars, Fools, Morans, people who talk twaddle, Farkers, Talking Point propagandists, and Lawyers. The truthiness shall set you free to believe any old crap you want.

I nominate Saint Emygdius of Sienna as the Patron Saint of homosexuals. Look him up and you'll figure out why for yourself.

dj_bigbird: Does Hamas have a deathwish?


I'm counting on everyone having a deathwish/belief in an afterlife, actually. Makes it easier to turn the whole benighted strip of stony fields into a Turkish marina.

JPSimonetti: Tatsuma: Since Wednesday morning, 274 rockets were fired and 105 intercepted by the Iron Dome system.

Can you imagine how the US would respond if, say, Mexico did this to Texas? Hell, just 1 rocket ... that maybe broke some cattle rancher's arm and pre-cooked a few of his bovine friends. Yet alone 169 impacting USA soil. And yet people still balk at Israel's relatively subdued retaliation as being over the top? Amazing. If that happened here, the end result would probably be a few thousand square miles of new USA soil before it was all over. "Even Newer Mexico", the 51st state.


That is a horrible analogy. What if the US were building settlements on Mexican land with US checkpoints dotted over the country. Now Mexico fires rockets into the US. That is a little closer.

Yep.
I wish we could just ignore everything from the Mediterranean to India. "You guys do whatever you want. Just leave everyone else on Earth out of it."

So much this. One reason I'm a huge fan of alternative energy is that I can't wait for the day when we can sever ties to the region on both the Arab and Israeli sides of the conflict and just let them kill each other in peace until they eventually grow up and join the rest of the civilized world. There's nothing good that can ever come of getting ourselves involved in this mess, but we have too many links to the Israelis and the Saudis to be able to ignore the conflict the way we really need to.

Shouldn't the Jews be able to have their own state?


They already have Florida, they don't need a second one.

coco ebert: CygnusDarius: Huh, hearing some interesting comments on the radio. Looks like the Mexican government might be condemning the attacks. There's talk that a good majority of the Mexicans support Palestine, and a former senator says we would gain more if Mexico and the rest of Latin America were to side with Palestine.

/Not sure it's gonna happen

The world basically supports Palestine, excluding the U.S. of course, which has blinders on when it comes to this issue.


Yeah, the rest of the world has always been so kind to Jewish people.

evoke: GAT_00: topcon: Israel should just totally ignore this and not fight back. 

Totally.

Israel brought the rockets on themselves by telling Palestinians over and over again that they will not negotiate in good faith or make any meaningful concession. They forced a war, because they wanted a war. Much easier to justify wholesale acquisition of land by war than by moving settlers illegally on it.

Israel left Gaza in 2005. They don't want it back. What they want is the terrorists to stop shooting missles at their people in the south. Sounds reasonable to me.


I actually expect Israel will annex both the West Bank and Gaza once this round is done.

With claims that Palestinian militants fired nearly 150 rockets on Thursday, killing three people, defence officials said Israel was prepared to launch a ground invasion into Gaza if necessary.


So far, at least 15 people, including Mr Jaabari, have been killed in more than 50 Israeli airstrikes - codenamed Operation Pillar Of Defence. Two young children were also among the dead.

Izzy has not reached their ordinary quota of 1 Israeli worth 10 'rabs one being a child yet, they will continue airstrikes until at least 1 more child and 14 adults are killed

shower_in_my_socks: This is the second time Israel has launched a Gaza war after an Obama election. I hope the women and children in the region who are about to die appreciate that it's all so the warhawks in Israel can send Barack Obama a message.

And they named the operation after a Bible verse, have no exit strategy, and won't say how this will actually solve anything. It's all so very, very George W. Bush/neo-cons circa 2003. But when has thinking with your d!cks ever gotten anyone in trouble?


Yea you are right is is so Israel's fault that Hamas is launching hundreds of rockets at civilian populated areas.
