Fight the Good Fight ISRAEL!
No kidding we have THE ENEMY WITHIN.....GO ISRAEL!!
the numers don't aid up Ireseal is the ageesor and we are heling them kill innocent people and bomb UN bulidings. 13 dead for irseal is not worth the 1,100 dead on the part of Palestine. Those rockets were emant to tick Irseal off no doubt but i nterms of damge they don't do much unlike thsoe 2,000 pounds bombs Irseal drops everywere they feel like it.
Why is the choice not Israel and Hamas? Typical stupid Vindicator survey! Designed to try to bias the results.
The Islamic world looks upon 9-11-01 as no big deal. Our responce to 9-11-01 is looked upon as a big deal because of the casualties. Israel is looked upon in the same light. Killing Israelis is no big deal but Israels responce is a big deal. Are they demanding sacrifices of Israeli and American lives to appease their blood lust?
I agree with both red and Stan. Plenty of people harp on Israel for what they do. And they certainly do a lot of underhanded things with our help. But they are in a unique position, surrounded on all sides by populations that largely revile them. Both sides have nationalist/religious elements to blame for years and years of continued, pointless cycles of aggression, reciprocation and brokered peace. I don't believe either side would know what to do with real peace anymore. It's just unfortunate we've involved ourselves in this mire.
Israel is our closest ally for better or for worse.
I am sorry that this had to happen. Hammas are on a hiding to nothing. Whatever Hamas do Israel will retaliate and more innocent civilians will be killed, Hamas will retaliate, Israel will retaliate and the war goes on. It is up to America to take a lead and try to at least to slow this bloodshed down. I just hope our new President has the guts to do it, regardless of the "Jewish Lobby". We need friends in the Arab world, thats where most of the worlds oil come from.
We have oil here but the libs are too scared to drill for it. They are idiots!! Talk about making an economic comeback, drilling would not only product jobs but would rid us of stinking ARAB oil.
Quail, is it possible that we are using more oil today than we were using back in the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90,s? What would the price of oil be if we had not drilled in Alaska and the Gulf in the past. How low will oil prices go if we do not drill in the Gulf and instead leave that to the foreign companies that are already drilling there? Need to think a little bit before you make unsubstantiated statements.
I agree to disagree on one point and agree wholeheartedly on what you propose that we need to do.
I say that demand is what drives supply, not the opposite as you stated. Case in point, the resent drop in demand due to the economy has led to OPEC cutting supply in order to shore up the prices.
I agree that we must pursue other sources of energy. There is a place for wind energy, solar,biodiesel etc. No one fix but certainly all of them have their positive sides. The ethanol thing with corn has proven to be rob Peter to pay Paul. A better source appears to be with sugar beets.
If there is one positive side to the higher energy prices it is that developing these other energy sources starts to become cost effective.
The Dem's have blocked drilling offshore for years and they continue to do so. They love that Arab filthy oil. The prices have always been "contrived" so don't try to tell me anything different.
Lets do it the way that the liberals desire. Cutting the use of hydrocarbons may be the answer. First lets cut the heat to the buildings in Washington DC. Imported sleeping bags from China will keep everyone from freezing. For transportation Chinese bicycles will keep the city moving and warm in the process. Yes we can lower our carbon imprint!
