Just to point out, all those countries you've named were conquered via legitimate military/colonial action, which was the accepted norm of the time.
The difference with Israel is that it was ratified into existence and other countries were the force of arms that usurped the resident Arab population.
Israel also simply cannot stand on her own two feet. They rely on outside support to defend her from her enemies.
Even then, I wouldn't have a personal issue with Israel if it wasn't for the continued war crimes the country commits. The UN even acknowledges charges against Israel, but has never laid any against Iran!
She further tells me that Iran has never made a direct threat of force, but rather refuses to acknowledge it as a legitimate nation and has been calling for it to either make peace with Palestinians or be dissolved.
Thats easy to say so please elaborate.
What attitude are you talking about? Being Patriotic?

I agree. I think there probably is something to the suspicious trading. Also with things so tense between the US and Iran... something has got to give.
"Patriotism ... is a superstition artificially created and maintained through a network of lies and falsehoods; a superstition that robs man of his self-respect and dignity, and increases his arrogance and conceit."

Somethings got to give. Hopefully it will be Bush choking on another pretzel and Cheney will suffer a fatal heart attack. Problem solved. The world breathes a sigh of relief. Wakes up, damn it was only a dream.
