How ironic that the root of the problem in the Middle East is religion. I know the Arabs think the Jews stole Israel, backed by Western powers. But come on, it's a small piece of land! It's so sad that so many people die over these religious differences.
Usually backed by other motives that the general population aren't aware of. The world won't grow up. Someone stole land hundreds of years ago and its passed down through generations to hate the other side and ends up in war and conflict over and over and over. How does the cycle end?
I see points from both sides, but it doesn't excuse actions by either. I just don't get it!
Me neither! Must be those agendas no one else knows. All I know is that history repeats itself, we don't learn, we don't teach tolerance and educate our children. If you can't agree in the playground of the world, have a fight.
These folks are going to drag the WHOLE WORLD down with them.
Yup! But many more in the world are the same.
Of course, if there was no oil there, no one would really care.
Probably true but theres always another reason. If not, make one up.
That's sad as well.
I'm not usually this "touchy-feely," but I am so tired of seeing the death and destruction.
I second that. Unfortunately, many people think death and destruction is a good idea!!! Go figure!
Why don't the world leaders come up with something?
They do. It's called War.
I couldn't agree more. It's stupid. Stupid, stupid, stupid. All of it. All wars, and all because the people of one or more countries are led blindly over the precipice and the use of propaganda to further the secret agendas of those in power blinds and blinkers the masses. I vote for peace. Everywhere. Period.
