...DonR locked that thread before I had finished answering your thread. I didn't lock, unlock, or relock anything, Boyo! If you will note, my last post ended with: "- continued -" BTW, I sent you the rest of my thread by e-mail. Post from Confederate -
Yea kinda unfair I thought.

Wasn't my idea to lock the thread, I was going to complete my answer to SteyrAUG's last post when the thread got locked. If SteyrAUG thinks I can unlock a thread that someone else has locked, well, then he needs to show me how, 'cause I don't know. Now, was I being unfair, [b]Confederate[/b]?

I guess that's my problem, I could have gone all night with SteyrAUG on that thread - I din't think it was getting out of hand. I thought we were doing quite nicely. There were a few F*** you's (him) and Screw you's (me) thrown into the mix, but WTF it was the kind of discussion that should be had. If you don't like Israel, fine. Just go pick up your Palestinian flag, your Yasser poster, and go march with the others with whom you seem to have so much in common. They march against Israel, they march against the US, they march for the UN, they march in favor of so many things, that if the RKBA ever did come to the Middle East, they would march against that as well. I have absolutely nothing in common with such riff-raff. In any area. Any subject. Any time. Eric The(PickingMyFriendsCarefully)Hun[>]:)]

Well you can 'check' any thread you like, but when I replied with the first part of my last answer, the reply was posted. When I attempted to post the second part, the post wouldn't go through and that's when I noticed that the thread was locked! And if you don't believe that, that's just fine by me, 'cause whether you believe me or not is so unimportant in the grand scheme of things as to be wholly and totally irrelevant. Besides, you haven't believed a thing I've said all day and evening. Why stop now? Shouldn't you be demonstrating at an American embassy somewhere? Maybe the Israeli Consulate in Miami?

Apparently not, or at least I couldn't. It is a strange thing, but it sometimes happens that even on DSL, I will lose my connection to AR15.com and have to log back on the site. It will sometimes happen at the end of my composing a post and I suddenly notice that I'm no longer 'connected.' The server will still allow me to post the reply I was working on, before it disconnects me. I will have to log back on to post a follow up to my post.

Eric, you need to understand that it is entirely possible for someone to disagree w/ Israel's policies & actions, yet not wave the "Yasser flag," or be pro-Palestinian. I will concede that while most of your posts are well reasoned, you have gotten quite zealous lately & are unable to respectfully accept opinions in opposition to yours w/out branding people "Yasser flag wavers" or terrorist supporters. What's happening over there is sheer madness on both sides & it needs to stop. Our President needs to tell both sides to simmer down, not just the Palestinians - as this entire thing is detrimental to our interests in the area, not to mention horrible to behold as a human being. Yes, Israel is sometimes right. Sometimes they are wrong. Not all Palestinians are suicide bombers. Americans who question this govt's BLIND (yes, blind) support of a questionable ally (Israel) are not terrorist supporters. Both you & Steyr need to simmer down yourselves. If you want to couch the debate in Zionist BS, religious vitriol, anti-semitic crap, or revolutionary propaganda I'm done w/ this bullsh*t conversation on this board. I'll stick to gun talk & other BS. This conflict is hell, for all involved, OK? I am increasingly disturbed by the poorly thought out responses to such threads on this board, by people I thought were better educated than what their responses reveal. While I have never been in a war, I have read my history well & know enough about it not to ever wish for it, or destruction of any kind, on any people. Sometimes it happens, but that doesn't mean we should all blindingly accept it. In closing I will state that Yasser is a gigantic turd, but Sharon equals him in fecal girth. For every wrong Arafat has committed, Sharon has committed one equal. They are political pigs, taking advantage of the poor, powerless, & uneducated. For us to support EITHER one of them is sick, wrong, & inherently un-American. Good night now.

Yes Sir, you are correct in the abstract, but in the very real world that we live in, you are as wrong as sh|t. There is one group in the Middle East that has pretty much done everything that the United States has required of them in order to make the US [u]comfortable[/u]. When the Sinai was required to be given back, it was given back, when Scud missiles fell down upon their country, they gritted their teeth and took the 34 missiles that were lobbed against them and, at our request, did not retaliate, when Lebanon was required to be evacuated, it was evacuated, when the dubious wisdom of the Oslo Peace process required that the Palestinians be given a great degree of freedom and autonomy, including the arming of a Palestinian Security force, it was done, when it came time for them to be called upon to make a final peace effort by offering to give their age-old enemies 97% of what was asked of them, they made the offer, but were rebuked. Now that the United States has suffered from the same type of terrorist attack that has plagued them since their earliest days of being a nation, the rules have changed. There is no need for the US to try and bargain in good faith with those that attacked it. There is suddenly no need need to meet with enemies and try and hammer out a resolution. There is no call for the US to withdraw from some strategic post or position that might assuage the wrath of its enemies and keep the region stable. Why? Because it's the US that is calling the tune for others to dance to, while we refuse to do any sort of dance whatsoever. If we don't like the tune, we kill the band. Now Israel is the country about which I have been speaking. As you might have guessed. When it has decided to take its own War on Terror to the same heights as we have taken against Al Quaeda and the Taliban, suddenly it had crossed a line. A line that has never existed for any other country on the face of the planet. No other country would be required to take the attacks by a neighbor and not be permitted to attack back. The only precedent for such stupidity would have had to be the US's political decisions it made during the Vietnam War to permit attacks from Cambodia and Laos upon its troops without being permitted to go into the enemies sanctuaries. The one time that the US did decide to go into the enemies sanctuaries in Cambodia, well, let's just say that the US paid a very high price for its efforts, such as world wide demonstrations (like we see now against Israel), campus demonstrations in the US (such as we see at Berkeley, now), one of which occurred at Kent State with the sad and lamentable result of 4 students being shot by National Guardsmen, liberal press editorials lambasting our decision (such as we now see against Israel), and our so-called European allies being the most vicious in their loud criticism and condemnations of US actions (such as we see against Israel now). - continued -

Hopefully, Israel will turn off its collective television sets, stop up its ears against the protests and do what must be done. Just as we should have done, lo, those many years ago in Southeast Asia. The good news is that the Bush Administration has decided that it will 'permit' Israel to do what it thinks must be done. Finally, the US has an administration that has learned the lessons of history. Hopefully. And to those who bitch against Israel at this time in its history, you can go to HELL![:D] Do you remember the Palestinians dancing in the streets? Not in September, 2001, but in 1991 when Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait? Do you remember that? Well, the Kuwaitis did and sent more than 300,000 Palestinians packing when the United States recovered their country for them. Do you remember the Palestinians dancing in the streets when Scud missiles fell in civilian areas of Israel during Saddam's last ditch efforts to blow apart the Coalition against him? Do you remember that? Finally, do you remember the Palestinians that were dancing in the streets on Sept 11? Those Palestinians are a group of 'wild and crazy guys' all right, who seem to be greatly disposed to 'dance in the streets' when they are moved to do so. Well, I don't see a whole lot of dancing in the streets today on the West Bank or in Gaza! I guess the Palestinians have lost their will to dance for the moment. Even the last 7 suicide bombings in the last 7 days haven't managed to get the people in the mood to dance anymore. Now [u]that's[/u] a real shame! Eric The(Historical)Hun[>]:)]

The oft-repeated Arab claim that the Israeli 'occupation' is somehow to blame for the Palestinian terrorism is nothing more than an empty retort, repudiated by the facts, and disproved by a century of historical reality. 1952, when 'fedayeen' terrorist border incursions reached their height, there were about 3,000 incidents of cross-border violence, extending from the malicious destruction of property to the brutal murder of civilians. In the years 1951-1955, 503 Israelis were killed by Arab terrorists infiltrating from Jordan, 358 were killed in attacks from Egypt, and 61 were killed in attacks originating from Syria and Lebanon. This anti-Israeli violence encompassed both frontier settlements and population centers, and was perpetrated, for the most part, against innocent civilians.

Holy shit, my mind is reeling over such a flawed sense of reasoning. Its almost like you saying that in post WWII Europe that if I didn't like France, that that makes me a Russia lover!?! Anyone buy that load of crap? Now I don't like either side, but when it comes to chosing who I'm behind, its obvious that Israel is the lessor of the evils and more in line with our agenda, but when (if) the guns are put down and both sides have finished duking it out, I wouldn't give a shit about the Israelis and I'd hope that our aid and other military donations to them stop.

Well, since I've demonstrated that you have every right to your own view, please allow me to have mine. There is a reason for the Palestinians and the Arabs to hate Israel. There is a reason for the terrorists who struck the United States on Sept 11th to hate Israel. There is a reason for the various Communist/Marxist parties of this world to support the Palestinians and to hate Israel. There is a reason for Muslim fundamantalists to hate Israel, so I am told (but I don't believe it). I suppose you must have your own reason to feel the way you do about Israel, too.

Oh, yes, 'for the children' we should stop! How very Clintonian, or is it Hillarian, of you! But, it's really none of your business. We won't complain about your laughable immigration laws, you don't tell us where we can spend money! OK? And you really should look at the latest polls on American support of Israel before you post such nonsense again. Eric The(American)Hun[>]:)]

Eric, Is every Palestinian a Israel hater? Is it possible that [b]innocent[/b] people on [b]both sides[/b] are suffering because of this. Is it possible to feel for those people on the Palestinian side who are innocent or does that make me a "Yasser waver"? And earlier in this thread someone asked what if mexico did what the palestinians did, what would the US reaction be... Well riddle me this ETH, If Muslims were in Israel's shoes and had a democratic society and all of the great attributes that you list in Israel's favor, and had JEWS attacking them who would you support? And would it be ok to be giving them 133B or 80B what ever the number is? -CK

Nope. There have been twelve 'collaborators' who have been murdered and whose bodies have been dragged through the streets in several Palestinian villages and left hanging on display. So I assume that the number is getting smaller.
Is it possible that innocent people on both sides are suffering because of this.

Not only possible, but quite likely!

Not at all, if you 'feel' for the folks who are truly innocent, such as the women and children, go right ahead. You're not doing anything wrong, as far as I can tell.

Well, though the situation is unimaginable, I would say that democratic nations should be supported at any costs from terror from an outside non-democratic nation or group. It would make no difference to me what the religion of the democratic nation might be, or the religion of the attacking nation or group.
And would it be ok to be giving them 133B or 80B what ever the number is?

If that's what the trusted experts told our leaders the number need to be, I would support it! Sorta like the costs of the Vietnam War. Were we fighting to save a Buddhist nation or a Catholic nation? We, or I should say, JFK, gave the 'green light' to the murderers of the Diem Brothers simply because the Generals thought they were too Catholic to run the country. Talk about irony, the First Catholic President washing his soon-to-be-assassinated-himself's hands in the blood of a fellow co-religionist! Eric The(ThatIsUnbelievable!)Hun[>]:)]

If you don't love America's allies, you should at least be able to give a cogent reason why! We spend more money on researching the mating habits of wombats and other such critters than we do on supporting Israel. And yet Israel is our boy on the front line, and your whipping boy! It is the one doing the heavy lifting in the Middle East. Israel's posture in the Gulf War reflected a deliberate political decision in response to [u]American[/u[] requests. Yet you taunt them for not doing more! Nevertheless, Israel did in fact aid the United States' successful campaign to turn back Iraqi aggression in Kuwait. Such as: - The IDF was the sole military force in the region that could successfully challenge the Iraqi army. That fact, which Saddam Hussein understood, was a deterrent to further Iraqi aggression. - By warning that it would take military measures if any Iraqi troops enter Jordan, Israel, in effect, guaranteed Jordan's territorial integrity against Iraqi aggression. Jordan's continued existence as a buffer state between Iraq and Israel was and continues to be indispensable for the maintenance of regional stability. - The United States benefited from the use of Israeli-made Have Nap air-launched missiles on its B-52 bombers. The Navy, meanwhile, used Israeli Pioneer pilotless drones for reconnaissance in the Gulf. - Israel provided mine plows that were used to clear paths for allied forces through Iraqi mine fields. - Mobile bridges provided by Israel were employed by the U.S. Marine Corps. - Israel Aircraft Industries developed conformal fuel tanks that enhance the range of F-15 aircraft. These were used quite a bit in the Gulf War. - Israeli recommendations, based upon system performance observations led to several software changes that make the Patriot a more capable missile defense system. - General Dynamics implemented a variety of Israeli modifications to improve the worldwide F-16 aircraft fleet including structural enhancements, software changes, increased capability landing gear, radio improvements and avionics modifications. - An Israeli-produced helicopter night-targeting system was used to increase the Cobra helicopter's night-fighting capabilities. - Israel also produced the canister for the highly successful Tomahawk missile. - Night-vision goggles used by U.S. forces were supplied by Israel. - A low altitude warning system produced and developed in Israel was utilized on Blackhawk helicopters. - Other Israeli equipment provided to U.S. forces included flack vests, gas masks and sand bags. - Israel offered the United States the use of military and hospital facilities. [b]U.S. ships utilized Haifa port shipyard maintenance and support on their way to the Gulf.[/b] - continued -

- Even in its low-profile mode, Israeli cooperation was extremely valuable: Israel's military intelligence has focused on Iraq much more carefully over the years than has the U.S. intelligence community. [b]Thus, the Israelis were able to provide Washington with detailed tactical intelligence on Iraqi military activities. [b]Defense Secretary Cheney[/b] said, for example, that the U.S. utilized Israeli information about western Iraq in its search for Scud missile launchers. During a visit to Israel May 30, 1991, Defense Secretary Cheney said: [b]"We think that the cooperation that we were able to engage in during the war in the Gulf...emphasizes how important the [U.S.-Israel] relationship is and how well it works when put to the test."[/b] Now, I simply choose to believe now-Vice-Pres. Cheney when it comes to Israel's contributions to the Gulf War. You must remember these '17 items, SteyrAUG, caused I have posted them so often that I've kept the post on Word. Yet not once, that I recall, have you ever directly commented on them. You have stated on occasion that we could get whatever Israel gave us for a whole lot lesser cost, but you've never said [u]how[/u]! Let's hear your response, not to me, but to then-Sec. of Defense Dick Cheney!

Didn't I say that I'm behind Israel in this conflict? Did I not say that I've chosen my side (regardless of what everyone else thinks, including the president, this country or you) and that my side is Israel? I think the problem here is that you think people have to love Israel to side with them. I have no love for them, nor will I.
Well, unreel your mind, son, and tell my why you are not marching in lockstep with the forces of evil in the world today.

Ok, I'll start with the fact that my brother is in West Point and we are a very patriotic family. I'll conclude with the fact that I was at WTC on 9/11 and saw first hand (means not on TV) 1) plane hit a skyscraper 2) Bodies falling out of skyscraper 3) Skyscrapers fall to the ground 4) Body parts and torched beheaded disemboweled corpses. I know first hand what the extremist arabs can do. I do not have any love for arabs and muslims. If people think I'm evil for that, so be it, but we've seen evil and it has an arab face. Eric, you seem to have your mind wrapped around the concept that someone who dislikes, or even HATES Israel is anti-American. Well, to be honest with you, the last time I checked, Israel was not attached to the US, nor is it a state. I know you love Israel, but who cares? As long as we all realize that Israel is the best country to win this conflict, then why be so interested in how much a person loves the friggin country and go to such lengths as telling patriotic Americans that they are aligned with the enemy for not liking Israel??!? Eric, on a very sincere final note, I think you should read very carefully what people are saying about the middle east conflict. You have jumped on too many people who are sided with the Israeli's but have voiced discontent at their relationship with the US. I'd also like to know what you think about Steyr's comments about the Iraq v. Iran war and the very interesting correllation between that and the current conflict. Are you unpatriotic for not chosing Iraq? [rolleyes]

Without a doubt, Jonathan Pollard. While I am not certain how far up the chain his spying efforts were know by Israeli officials, I am compelled to blame the whole government for not keeping a better watch on their operatives. They spy on us as much and as thoroughly as we spy on them. But the Jonathan Pollard case was such a very bad penetration of our security, that no one familiar with the case has ever urged clemency! That says a lot! And I don't mean to be willfully blind, but I can't think of any other instance of Israeli treachery that approaches Pollard. Eric The(EverTruthful)Hun[>]:)]

Eric, I will try and explain this as sincerely as I can. I have NO anti-Israel agenda. I know you won't believe that. My sole objection to Israel is they exist at OUR expense for THEIR benefit. I could really care about the Palestinians who danced in the streets on 9-11. Despite your efforts to portray me as a lover of Arafat. I DON'T believe Israel does ANYTHING for US, let alone anything that justifies 3 BILLION a year. And your "rest assured they do something, even if WE don't know about it" is the same kind of bullshit I get from MY government. I object to that as well. England gets less in aid, we have established that as fact, even though I still haven't found the exact figure on how much they get (and neither have you.), but does far more in terms of actions that directly benefit the US. And I mean military actions, not their voting record in the UN. Nobody dies casting a vote in the General Assembly.
