Hi there!

Unless you mean racist skin, then no. We all know that most skinheads aren't racist. right? Or are we back to that whole Geraldo, Quincy, Springer idea of what a skinhead is?

Aren't there Arab members of the Knesset?

Yes, but they've long complained of second-class citizenship and treatment, just like the Arab Israelis that comprise 20% of the population. And that hasn't stopped the Knesset from passing laws that basically justify their complaints.


Psst: I think you can be Arab and Jewish...

Question,
Whats to stop someone from covertly nuking an Iranian nuke storage depot/uranium refinery and then just turning around and saying to the rest of the world "Well that's what you get for farking around with nukes"
Sure, the Iranians will claim that some outside force was responsible,(it was the evil Zionists etc), but no one takes anything they say seriously anyway.
If it was done in such a way to look like an accident then it might have the extra effect of deterring other non-nuclear countries from trying to achieve the bomb.

JP says its from a tweet from a BBC Persian reporter. But a Q&D translated look at the BBC Persian site has nothing that I can see. I don't read Farsi.

Are Iranian officials calling it an "act of terror," or are they calling it a "terrorist attack?"

This is Ahmadinejad's Benghazi.

Muta: I am sure Obama do too much and not enough in response.


This is entirely possible, so long as he does too much in one sense and not enough in another. Say, too much posturing, strong and macho talk about red lines and stuff on one hand (that'd be the too much) and doesn't do anything on the other (that'd be the not enough).

It's not that hard to see how, even on the same topic, Obama can fail to be a good politician, both by excess (talking big without a clear intent or plan about how to follow it up) and deficiency (by backtracking from previously stated 'commitments) on the other.  Both are failures to properly govern emotion when making political decisions, both are a kind of failure of courage (at least).

Obama seems is capable of making clear, well-thought out, and means-ends rational decisions (i.e., reasoning clearly with respect to bringing about an end and figuring out to bring about that end) when it concerns things he really likes and cares about: health care reform, etc. But even then he gets in over his head sometimes, due to lack of political wisdom: the recent gun reform failures.

Anyway, I fully expect some passionate speeches (a kid of "too much") and little or no substantive response regarding this event (the "too little", or excuse me, the 'virtuous sort of leading from behind', which isn't really that, but rather going 'yay, good job!' or 'you didn't do that very well' pronoucements of armchair quarterbacks).

Yet they obviously think Palestine is too crappy for them. No one is keeping them locked up in Israel, they're not wanted, and yet they stay. I think the right to complain has been waived.

It seems they basing this off of a single tweet by a BBC Persian reporter who is not identified or linked to. That last part could be for his/her protection though. I don't think a single tweet by a journalist is news. It might be Fark, though.

nothing
nothing at all

plus, once the dust has settled, everyone will be secretly happy that "you" might have bombed them.

This is why Iran stores/builds their missiles in a big city. HUMAN SHIELDS are AWESOME SHIELDS.

The tattoos are religious, and in places covered by clothing. The shaved head is because I have extremely thick hair, and in the warmth of summer it's like wearing a wool cap, so I either have to shave it, or buzz it regularly.

I have zero problem with attacking a country which is planning on attacking another country.
Are we required to WAIT until a nuke is dropped on chicago before stopping "them"?
Is it ok to preventively stop war mongerers?
/yes, I am aware that this skirts the whole "who watches the watchers" issue and "one man's terrorists is another man's found fathers/freedom fighters"
