It is?

Imagine the damage that Hamas could do if they could actually *aim* their rockets?

All flights are being diverted to Bangor, Maine.

Why would an agency responsible for airline safety telling the airlines not to fly into an airport that's been subject to rocket attacks piss anyone off? Especially since that whole "airplane being shot out of the sky with missiles" thing happened, you may have heard about it.

If you wanted to piss people off, you'd say something about stopping military aid to Israel as a result of their decision to murder civilians as a form of collective punishment for the Gaza Strip.

Yep.
Trying to keep people safe can be a biatch. Glad everyone was on top of things and decisive, immediate action taken.

No, it just slowed the tourist trade down a little.

A) The "main supply route" doesn't involve commercial flights.
B) I'm fairly certain that even if that was the case, Israel can take a 24-hour hit.
C) As I understand it, one of the towns Hamas is targeting has Ben Gurion Airport at its southern border. Rather than the FAA risk a Hamas rocket hitting a commercial airliner (wildly improbable), or an Iron Dome missile hitting one (also improbable, but less so), they're playing it safe. As they should.
 
2014-07-22 04:15:42 PM  
Very odd. The written story starts out with this all being cause by an order from the FAA. However, the video makes no mention of the FAA at all, just that airlines are canceling flights. Maybe the people that write the story and the people that broadcast the story should talk to one another and get their stories straight?

Hmmmm. I think tallguy was asking if it were obvious that the flights were suspended.

Does anyone else think both Israel and the Palestinians suck? I find it hard to pick a side. It's like one day I'm thinking, "damn terrorist Palestinians," and the next day, it's like, " dick move, Israel."

They each have their own special way. The difference I note is that Israel often does good things, too, whereas Hamas is all but 100% douchelords.

Perhaps. That is not an angle I considered.

Another angle to consider is we found Tallguy's alt :P

I am somewhat neutral on this because I haven't cared to study it. I know they have been fighting over this same piece of land for decades. Both have done bad things to each other and says "I'm just getting them back for when they did the last thing..." I don't know who started it or why. Again, I really don't care.

However, I do need to form some opinion so I can comment at the next cocktail party (do they still have those?). I wish Kim Kardashian would comment publicly so I know how I should feel.
