I think it's safe to say that most people not directly involved in this conflict have picked a side. That's the real root of the problem in the
middle east, too many people around the world are willing to let them duke it out and do little to stop it. Is there really anyone out there that's
neutral? I haven't read too many posts here that give me that impression. I certainly am not. I have my idealogy, and, for better or worse, I'm not
sure I could look outside that prism completely.
A couple of questions.
Would this conflict happen if the other nations of the world refused to take a side?
None of the parties involved could beat the other without outside help, or could they? ( Israel depends on U.S. military aid, Hezbollah/Hamas need
arms and money from Iran/Syria and political support from Russia)
It sounds sick but I think this conflict is more like a cock fight and we're all standing here with fists full of dollars waiting to see if our bird
is gonna prove to be a winner. Some people will disagree with me, but I see the evidence of it everywhere.
