That may have to do with Obama not having good relations with that country. Bush certainly helped them out. Though keep in mind, just because we may not send troops to help them out, doesn't mean we aren't helping them. We send billions of dollars in aid every year over there, plus we've sent weaponry in the past including bunker buster bombs and jet fuel during the Israel-Lebanon conflict.
Israel/U.S. war relations
Here an article that sums up many of my sentiments:
Israel Has Reached Childhood's End -- It's Time to End U.S. Aid to Israel
Helping them and Cleaning Up Their Mess are two different things.
And really, the notoriously anti-Semitic HuffPoo as a reliable source for anything about Israel? Come on.
Your posts smell of shilling for the Zionist Agenda. The only reason I am replying to your post is to warn others not to reply to you as they are just feeding a paid troll.
Nice try and thank you for playing
Well, I clicked on this thread for a couple of reasons...
1. I like the Floyd
2. I like Roger, although he is both the ugliest and most self centred musician I can maybe think of right now, the way he treated Rick Wright was appalling.
Anyhow, I am always interested to know why "rock stars" and the like, you know, Bono, Geldof etc think they can diversify into politics and such.
After reading three pages of this thread I must say I am disappointed. Not slapping down the discussion, just misinterpreted the thread title.
For what it's worth, Rogers' lyrics have been political almost from day one, certainly from DSOM onwards. In any interview I have seen though it comes from a personal experience perspective as opposed to a world wide concern.
