I just find it hypocritical when people finally decide to take a stand when Israel is involved. I mean common there are so many worse conflicts going
on in the world BEFORE Israel invaded Gaza. I hope to see the same people protesting Israel in an anti-china rally.
Interesting. That implies that we ought to have our noses in everyone's business and be settling disputes all over the world with nuclear weapons as
our empowerment. Just because we have, doesn't mean we have to, or should continue doing it. I see the philosophy, unfortunately I just don't
subscribe to it. History just keeps repeating itself. Absolute power corrupts absolutely, no matter where you are.
I swear I would give my left leg if people even knew who the Dalits are and the atrocities committed against them.
Funny, I'd probably give mine too if people even knew who Americans really are and the atrocities committed against them everyday by abusive
authority and corruption of the highest order and influence. Selling a senate seat? That's America? Rodney King? That's America? Operation
Not the America that could have been without that kind of abuse of power going on in our faces with a finger attached. Supposedly we put these people
in power to make the right decisions for us, not just for them.
You obviously dismissed my point of guerrilla warfare, especially the type used by Hamas. It changes the rules and the landscape completely.
Military intelligence (an oxymoron) can only pinpoint so much. And when you have a civilian based militia there is really no telling who or what is
It might change the rules, but it doesn't change the GPS coordinates (landscape) much unless a new structure is built. Yep, lotsa building they are
doing in Gaza right about now.
These people are going to starve to death.
And despite this still Israel has killed all these Hamas soldiers. Lucky shots I suppose with no intelligence? I just don't see how that does not
register with you. I am arguing that they are too good a fighting force to be making many mistakes in these types of plane missile attacks. Waltz in,
unopposed, bomb, yawn, get some more and do it again. Plenty of time, yawn again.
Truth is, someone said "I want one x-type missile in that building 14th floor or w/e, more horizontal approach, from this side, and right there.
"Yes, sir. Will transmit coordinates to target, with special instructions."
And unopposed in the air, or from the ground, that's too easily done as seen so many times everywhere on youtube, etc. Mistakes? You are going to
need a new supply of snake oil, last batch didn't work.
