The Decolonization Committee wanted those 16 countries set free....they never were. And their next step is the UN Security Council....soon.
There are currently 16 Non-Self-Governing Territories left on the United Nations decolonization list: Western Sahara, American Samoa, Guam, New Caledonia, Pitcairn, Tokelau, Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Falkland Islands (Malvinas), Gibraltar, Montserrat, Saint Helena, Turks and Caicos Islands and the United States Virgin Islands.
Why did the United States spray paint blue lines around their military bases on one of the countries on that UN Decolonization List? Odd thing to do.....
It's all tied in with Palestine and unfinished business from WWII.
The Jews declared war on Germany because Hitler kicked out the Jew run banking system and set up a non debt money system where there was no charging of interest. This is why the US went to war against Germany and why the US still fights wars.
What could that be?

I don't even understand why there should be a Palestine.
Worth probably in the billions if they cleared the inhabitants and developed and subdivided that little bit of land.

I don't even understand why there should be a Palestine. The Gaza Strip is a little piece of land. One side of it is about 6 miles in length. The longest line between any two sides is about 27 miles. Even the West Bank is not very big. Imagine something 20 miles by 30 miles and that's not far away from its size. Israel is small, for that matter. While Lebanon is half the size of Israel, Jordan is 4.18x bigger. And Syria is bigger than Jordan. Israel and Lebanon and Jordan would only consume 48.98% of the state of Oregon. It's crazy how small countries can be.edit on 20-9-2011 by jonnywhite because: (no reason given)
What gets me is Palestinians want statehood, but continue to support Hamas which is violently opposed to Israel. Hamas has even attacked its own people to get attention. So long as the Palestinians support Hamas I see NO two-state solution and a recognition of Palestine as a country.
Hamas Covenant - Wikipedia
Relevance of the Charter in the 21st century
British diplomat and former British ambassador to the UN Sir Jeremy Greenstock stated in early 2009 that the Hamas charter was "drawn up by a Hamas-linked imam some [twenty] years ago and has never been adopted since Hamas was elected as the Palestinian government in 2006 as part of their political program". Mohammed Nimer of American University comments on the Charter, “It’s a tract meant to mobilize support and it should be amended... It projects anger, not vision.” Pastor states that those who quote the charter rather than more recent Hamas statements may be using the Charter as an excuse to ignore Hamas.
Dr. Ahmed Yousef, an adviser to Ismail Haniyeh (the senior political leader of Hamas) has questioned the use of the charter by Israel and its supporters to brand Hamas as a fundamentalist, terrorist, racist, anti-Semitic organization and claims that they have taken parts of the charter out of context for propaganda purposes. He claims that they dwell on the charter and ignore that Hamas has changed its views with time.He further states that "the Israelis have, for example, translated the charter to several languages, English and French included, intentionally perverting the substance of its tenets to suit their purposes. Those aims were to market its fraudulent translation to as many Western politicians, academics and media channels as possible; and therefore make it easier to claim security concerns as the basis for their legal infractions. The fear-mongering is designed to horrify the West so much that it turns a blind eye to Israels crimes against humanity which contravene international law".

But former US president Bill Clinton told CNN: "There is a widespread feeling in the world that the current Israeli government may have abandoned the intention of working with the Palestinians to create a state on the West Bank in Gaza and just doesn't want to say it."
You need to consider how wealthy a place it was in old times where this was it, because of its location at the crossroads to three continents and the central hub of trade. This is amazingly valuable but has been made to look like it is not so that people who don't know any better will believe it to be insignificant.
The size of Israel to the US is microscopic.
If the palestinians stop their support of Hamas and cut off the rocket attacks and smoke out those who oppose Israel violently, then yes, I think it would be fine to see them achieve statehood. But I do not believe statehood is their goal. I think that conquering all of Israel is their goal. They believe Israel does not rightfully exist.

Until this hatred for Israel is exhausted and the people of former 'palestine' put down their weapons in favor of peace, I see no end of this war until all of the palestinians are either killed or put in jails.
A good recent episode is from September 13 with the guest, Veronica Clark, talking about strategy of war, and what are we doing now, what Israel will do, and what the US learned from the Germans.
Sorry that I seemed to be implying that it was in that one. I was trying to direct you towards how to find that because Veronica is the guest who gets into that sort of thing most consistently. She seems to be on Diana's show about once a month. I don't have my mp3's organized to where I know right where to find specific bits of information.
