  • Pace Sheldon Adelson: Top 5 Signs West Bank is Occupied Territory
    • There is what's called a profile in courage. What we witnessed however from mr tough guy Christie and other Republicans supplecants were profiles in cowardice. If you can't stand in a room and tell zionists, who if the world turned its back would expel Palestinians, the truth; they have no business laying claim to the title of most powerful man in the world. They were pure cowards to prostrate themselves before an international gambling mogul. It was a discussing display of gutless behavior, politicians putting the interests of zionists, who in no way speak for the majority of Jews here or in Israel ahead of the National Interest of the US. I don't want to hear anymore talk about tough Christie. What I'll take away is Christie kneeling and kissing the feet of a billionaire ardent Zionist who makes his money off of hapless gamblers.

  • Obama Plays Hardball and Egypt's Morsi Folds
    • Come on people,a country that has not been a democracy for 7,000 years, suddenly becomes one. Then they elect their first President with almost no other democratic institutions in place and you expect this guy to be a Nelson Mandela? No way. Before he's been on the job 6 months he has his first international crisis on his hands.

      Surely, you don't expect him to right away act like an experienced hand? We'll get him through this, and he will be better in the long run.

      Morsi understands that Egypt cannot prosper without the West. I'm sure he will figure it out, as long as we don't panic and make his situation worse.

      When the President made his statement on Telemundo I turned to a friend that his low key calm statement was brilliant. Well said in the language of diplomacy. That and the followup phone call sure as hell got Morsi's attention.

      This is the exact reason that we don't need another arrogant ass in the White House. Was Romney serious or just plain stupid to think that anyone on earth would be cowed because he is President? The more I hear that guy talk the more dis likable and disgusting he becomes. It's amazing that a guy who has been running for President for almost a decade knows so little about the world and foreign policy.

  • Turkey Crisis Provokes Israeli Army Anger at Lieberman
    • The U.S. has not had a policy in its interest since President Eisenhower. Because Congress has acted as an extension of the Israeli Knesset no President has been able to articulate a foreign policy that would benefit both the U.S. and Israel. The Israelis just don't seem to know that time is not on their side.

  • Qaddafi was a CIA Asset
    • @jar So the mass graves, the burned bodies, the raped women and the eye witness accounts of the atrocities committed by Qaddafi's secret police and armed forces are myths, or made up stories? What did the rebels do? Exhume the dead then burn the bodies inside a warehouse so they could claim they just discovered the atrocity? Did they hire thousands of actors, then stage a fake release from several prisons where Qaddafi held political prisoners?

      Listen, the man is a murderous, ruthless thug who because he had established a tenuous relationship with the West in general and with Washington in particular became more delusional than he already was. He never once dreamed that President Obama would force his hand when he openly talked about slaughtering thousands of his own citizens!

      Every event is not a conspiracy, nor is there some puppet master pulling the strings behind the scenes. What you see is what you get.
