Oh thank goodness, this will make it must easier for the USAF to airlift in the $50 billion in foreign aid the Israelis are demanding in exchange for not killing another 600 people in Gaza.  That's great news because I can't think of ANYPLACE we should be more involved than the Middle East.  It's geographically close to the US, and all previous involvement there has lead to such wonderful results.....

I think it's pretty unlikely we'll get the truth out of anyone. We're better off cutting that region out of the globe. Just wall it off for another 2000 years and hope they sort it out themselves.

Why haven't we done that yet? Oh right - energy.

I can't imagine what it would be like to be renting a house, then someone comes barging, with the consent of the landlord and some kind of tacit approval from the most powerful lawmaker in the area. All because that someone's grandparents used to own that house many, many years earlier. After barging in, they force me and my family at gunpoint to take all our belongings, into just one bedroom and the half bath downstairs, telling us that part of the house is ours and the rest of it will be theirs for as long as they see fit. And then every now and then, they pop out another kid, and that kid moves into a corner of the bedroom, telling us it's always been theirs and paternalistically reminding us we're lucky they provide us with so much a better life than our ancestors had when they had the responsibility of taking care of the whole damn house.

Yeah, I might be just a bit touchy about things if that happened to me too.

Actually, the guy is concerned about sufficient energy supplies in Asia and Europe. The Americas would probably be fine.

And what better solution to their problems have we come up with in the past 70 years? Arm both sides just enough that the conflict goes on *forever* isn't working out so good.

Why there will always be conflict between Israel and Palastine

Palastinians throw rocks at tanks
Tanks shoot back, blow up a building.
Thus creating more rocks.

Let's put this in equal perspective. US invaded Mexico and lost. Then US started a war of terrorism against Mexico, saying that all Mexicans needed to be exterminated because they are an affront to Jesus.
Then after repeated attempts at peace including concessions from Mexico, rednecks still continue to murder Mexicans as much as they can. Rather than build schools, the US builds tunnel networks to attack Mexico. Obama repeatedly says that Mexico should be destroyed and has no right to exist, because Jesus told him so.

Finally Mexico sends troops over and seals the borders to put a stop to the constant attack on its people.  Temper this with your feelings for rednecks that kill immigrants in the US for fun in the desert.

Tell me the US wouldn't deserve this graphic. Hell, not sure that we don't deserve this RIGHT NOW.

Also, forgot to mention that the US took the land from Native Americans. So when you draw a parallel between Palestinian patriotism and American Patriotism, it kinda tells me that the land never really belonged to them in the first place.

Tell me, just how long would America allow Mexico to go uninvaded if Federales started launching rockets into Texas, hmm? 

A nation has one responsibility above all others. To safeguard the well-being of their people against outside aggressors. In this case, Israel's safeguarding their people from the excessive rocket attacks with a full clean sweep, just as they should. 

And they're giving warning too, to GTFO before they run air raids. Which is a damn sight more than the US has done in the past two Middle Eastern conflicts. Did the palestinians give warning to the civilians of Israel when they started firing rockets? Nope.

Of course, someone will come around screaming "OMG ISRAELI PROPAGANDA", but they can suck a fat one and die of leprosy for all I care.

That scenario is in no way comparable to the history of the Israel/Palestinian conflict.

You mean that the Muslims were upset that within about 30 years of being on the losing side of the largest war to have ever been fought on the face of the earth that not everything would have gone to their liking? It seems as though the creation of Israel was one of the lightest things that could have happened to them after losing WWI.

Hypotheticals can work, but they have to actually be related to reality. Sadly, people like Uncle Tractor usually resort to hypothetical allegories because reality says the opposite of what they want to believe, then blame "magical Holocaust-guilt superpowers" when it doesn't work.

Nice fonts, clean images, if I made a PowerPoint presentation that looked that sweet I'd be CEO by the end of the month.

/the information presented is still bullshiat though
//the triumph of style over substance doesn't actually affect reality, only our perception of it
///and when reality gets shiatty enough that we actually need to see it clearly in order to survive in it, substance suddenly starts mattering more than style
