Awesome Article! "Clearly we're not ready to take on the Arabs in our present condition. We can't fight the whole world and the whole world wants to fight Israel. By defending Israel we are in effect challenging the whole world. But unlike Israel we are deeply immersed in trade with her enemies while trying to hunt down our attackers. Which means we will continue to buy oil from the Saudis while we quietly build up our stocks elsewhere. Which means we will continue to play nice with a sagging coalition that hates us. Which means we will be forced to distance ourselves from the Israel/Palestine issue while trying to be the broker of peace. And we will seal our fate."

I'm noticing a pattern here (said in a sing-songy voice) divdoc: Start a thread. G-ma: Rebutts divdoc: Cut and run and start a new thread. _______________ And I'm STILL waiting for your apology trying to equate me with the Communists and Hezbollah. Keyboard commandos .... [puke] Beyond this, I guess there is NO POINT in replying any further.

"The idea of the State, as the benevolent source of authority, claiming a moral prerogative to wield power over the lives, behavior, attitudes, and property of citizens, is the essence of Communism and Nazism and underlies American left/liberalism today. This idea is alien to American conceptions of liberty. Yet the left markets the Socialist idea as a benevolent exercise in ending inequality of all types." TheRedGoat

Let's run with that definition for a minute.... Is is the [b]Israel supporters[/b] who are in favor of the US gov't , [b] "the source of authority"[/b] based on a [b] moral prerogative [/b]forcibly under penalty of law, taking [b]"the property of citizens" [/b]namely my tax dollars from me [b]"to wield power over the lives" [/b]of others, for the [b]"benevolent"[/b] purpose of [b]"ending inequality" [/b]in Israel. I, of course, am against all this. So, if people are gonna throw around labels, WHO are the commies???? [?] [rolleyes] And I ain't hezbollah, either. Still waiting, divdoc. Apology and retraction. You KNOW which thread.

"Four legs good, Two legs bad!" "No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which." -George Orwell, the conclusion of Animal Farm TheRedGoat
