  • Recognizing Israel as a Jewish State is like saying the US is a White State
    • Well then we have to point to the astounding hypocriscy of US wanting to have a democracy here and a religious and ethnic ruled Jewish state.
      Couldnt be clearer that they think they are 'exceptions' to the rest of the world. They arent, they better get over it sooner rather than later..

  • White Terrorist Plot to Assassinate the 'Commander in Chief'
  • In Switch, Egypt's Civilian President Makes Coup against Generals
    • Morsi's actions not premature at all.
      To put the military 'under the government' instead of visa versa it's best for new leadership to act early and decisively to set the controls.

  • Is an Iranian Drug Cartel Behind the Assassination Plot against the Saudi Ambassador?
    • The obvious reason for this set up is to sell Iran as a threat to the US.
      A war on Iran for Israel and the Jews wouldn't play well with the public.
      Hence this bulls*** sting.

  • Cole, ACLU, Sue CIA, FBI seeking Bloggergate Documents
    • Good! Go after them.
      These tactics of the government and other groups have to stop.

  • An Open Letter to the Left on Libya
    • You are so right, accurate and logical Prof Cole.

      But as we see by some of the responses you can't force people to see their 'one size fits all' ideology for what it is.

      The "absolute" fringes of left and right are both alike.
      They hunker down on one absolute belief in one absolute course for every problem, maybe because it's mentally easier and doesn't require any real examination or judgement or they are just incapable of analyzing or distinguishing between one situation and another.

      The Obama adm made the right moral and foreign policy choice in this case, the critics of the left and right are just the usual noise.

  • All Hell Breaks Loose in the Middle East
    • "From where I stand, the apropriate places for no fly zones are Gaza and Lebanon."

      Well, you have to start somewhere and our "words" of support for Egypt and our "material" support Libya and our 'cautions" to Saudi and at least a beginning.

      Every successful popular revolt in the ME means increased pressure on the US to apply pressure to Israel.

      It will get harder and harder for the US to keep up the least under this adm.
      ME rulers now having been forced into some kind of action in response to their own street and into at least showing up on Libya will find it harder and harder to just offer up lip service and talk out of both sides of their mouths.

      As for Syria and Iran, not every situation is the same.
      Even if Israel was behind a revolt, with the Arab street attitude toward Israel and the US, the instigators regime would soon be turned out themselves.

  • Ras Lanuf Falls to Rebels
    • For those wanting a military and intelligence look at the ME and Libya Col. Lang's site provides some insight.
      link to
      Sic Semper Tyrannis

      Colonel Lang is a retired Army Military Intelligence, Special Forces, and Foreign Area Officer. In his last active duty assignment, he was Defense Intelligence Officer for the Middle East, South Asia, and Terrorism. Following retirement, he became the first Director of the Defense HUMINT Service for which he was awarded Presidential Rank of Distinguished Executive. He was the first Arabic Language professor at West Point. After leaving government, he served ten years as a business executive for a company operating in the Middle East and South Asia. He wrote Intelligence: the Human Factor, a definitive text on human intelligence collection operations, as well as several novels based on Confederate secret services in the Civil War. He is a VMI graduate and has a Masters Degree in Middle East Studies.

      Being a Vietnam veteran and Green Beret his views naturally aren't your typical civilians but still very informative.

  • Wael Ghonim vs. Barack Obama: Change we Can Believe in, Yes we Can
    • I didn't vote for Obama, it femine intitution.
      I changed my mind at the last minute and wrote in a name. I'll continue writing in a name.
      I also changed my registration to unaffiliated...done with this musical chairs dual monarchy system.
      Both the republican and dem followers are the fringes in this country.
      I will save my time,money and energy for when Americans get the cojones to do an Egyptian on DC.

  • Saad's Revolution: Cole at Truthdig
    • What I enjoy most about the Egyptian revolt is here at last we have an event in which Realist and Moralist could both agree on the same position to be taken by the US.

      Realist have an opportunity to learn that 'doing the right thing' 'is' 'the real politic' in the long run of US interest...cultivating the good will of an entire population trumps the value of remote control by US puppets.

  • DOJ Subpoenas Twitter Account of Wikileaks Volunteer and now Iceland MP
    • You couldn't pay me to join Facebook, my space or twitter and tweet or post videos...I have enough to keep up without all that and net comments is as public as I want to go.
      Just drop out of it all....90% of it is just noise.
      The net sites like this are enough, or have been, who knows in the future.

  • Iran's Oily Revenge on US Drivers, US Troops
    • A lot of things combine to make a perfect storm for increases in oil prices, not the least more demand from more countries,more demand from more people and so forth.
      Would we be able to get the necessary oil from the ME if we attacked Iran -- probably not.
      But crazy people don't care, the congressperps will be given vouchers for gas just like in WWII.
      Some poeple in power live to feel special, war makes them feel special.

  • Women enlist as Fighters in Gaza
    • "What frustration causes a man to decide such?"

      Desperation and Hopelessness.
      If you don't have a trillion dollars worth of US weapons to defend yourself with you use what you do have.

      I am sure Missy Hillary Blah-Blah will say this 'isn't helpful.' But after decades of watching your land taken, your children killed,your livelihood destroyed, your dignity crushed daily...I can see why they would turn to this.
      Sometimes it's better to die on your feet then live on your knees.

  • 5000 Birds fall out of Sky in Arkansas
    • I can understand a disease affecting a certain species of fish, but I find the bird explaination hard to believe.
      Birds can and do kill themselves flying into a barrier or hard surface like windows, I've revived many who hit my larger windows by warming them in towels them until they come out of shock.
      But?....if the birds were paniced by fireworks or etc they would have flown "up" immediately , not sideways or down toward the ground where they were likely to hit trees or buildings.
      Someone could have been sick of them nesting in the area and poisoned them is my first thought.

  • Hating Muslims in America
    • When one looks at all the bits and pieces, all the warning signs and results of the monied elite, the pro Israel zionist and special interest power brokers control of our government we could think we were only one step away from electing a Hitler type in the US that would bring about world chaos.
      All that would be necessary for that to happen is for all these various special interest cabals to agree on the right candidate. And then the press would promote him to an ignorant and dissatisfied public.

      King as the incoming head of the house Homeland Security committee is another little step closer.

  • Movement for Palestinian State gains International Momentum, to Dismay of US Congress
    • "The rest of the world is just not going to put up with century of Apartheid policies in the West Bank and Gaza, and will likely begin applying economic and diplomatic sanctions to Israel."

      I so hope you are right...and soon.

      And to JJ jump on your congresperps..the fax and phone are your friend...let them have it.

  • Egypt: Israel's Nukes Destabilizing to Region (Wikileaks)
    • It is a silly excerise.

      Replying to the Israeli PR machine or hard core zionist is like trying to have a adult conversation with a child in his terrible twos. Lots of screaming, tantrum throwing and childish demands.

      Everyone knows you have nukes is the only reply needed...end of conversation.

  • Fareed Zakaria Destroys Beck on Lunatic Islamophobia
    • It seems the neos, the Israeli activist,and self serving pundits and ideologues like Beck have all racheted up their assault on Musims and by extension on America and Americans.

      With the public becoming increasingly more informed ( I think, I hope) on the ME, Israel and Muslim and Iran issues, the attacks on sanity and facts increase even more and get louder and more vicious.
      I noticed that Jenifer Rubin publically called in her column for assassinating Iran scienist.
      What next?

      We are in a very bad, bad place. The problem is if we don't fight these people just as loudly and actively and some times with their own tactics, they win.

      IMO the day our press ceased to be a free press and became agenda driven and propaganda organs by their owners and special interest America's highway to ruin was set.

  • Obama Should Let the UN apply Economic Sanctions to Israel
    • Obama will never do that.
      He would actually have to be working for America to implement that option.
      Know anyone in the Israeli Occupied Territory of Washington who is working for America?

  • Is AIPAC a Wikileaks Operation?
    • "who have committed unpatriotic ( instead of saying TREASON)"

      PC is so yesterday, plain speech is the new fad.......just go ahead and call it treason.

  • Why Obama gave in on Israeli Settlements in Jerusalem: Eric Cantor, Ros-Lehtinen Channel Israeli Right on Usurpation of Holy City, Displacement of Palestinians
    • According to the WPost several years ago, Dems get 60% of their campaign funds from Jewish of Israel is the string attached.
      Since I am way past politically correctness let me point out these people, Jews and non Jews, dems and repubs, alike are actually traitors. Period.

      But since a lot of Americans can't see the forest for the trees..they will continue to meekly vote both parties in and out , in and out, wondering why nothing ever changes for the better.

  • Republican Iott a Reenactor of SS Panzer Div. Wiking
    • Don above is correct.

      And although wearing a Waffen uniform is really bizzare, Iott's points about Germany's military are correct. It is doubtful that the world will ever see a military machine like the German army ever again.
      It's also correct that regular German soldiers like soldiers of any other army in a war "think" they are fighting for their country.
      Between 65 and 70 million, including civilians were killed in WWII according to allies records.
      25 million were Russian. Russia also lost the highest number of civilians due to starvation and other hazards of war.
      If Hitler hadn't made the mistake of reniging on his peace agreement, attacking Russia and bringing them into the war it is doubtful the allies would have won.
      Furthermore IMO the biggest mistake the US ever made was not giving Russia credit due in WWII and making them a ally instead of an enemy.
      For those who believe in the interventionalist theory of a Concert of Great powers for world stability...they missed the boat on Russia.

  • Sanchez v. Stewart: El Error del Dia
    • I have rarely watched Sanchez, and Stewart only occasionally, but some reports say this was a personal thing between Sanchez and Stewart. Reportedly Sanchez took some of Stewart's 'teasing" of him in their personal interactions the wrong way and perceived a insult where none was intended.
      The rant by Sanchez was very stupid, no other word for it.....every corporate employment contract I know of has dismissal clauses for "certain types of behavior"...and dissing your employer or one of your employer 's highy rated 'stars" in that business would be one of those no-no's.
      The "Jewish factor" is another thing, had he said the 'evangelicals" control the networks and the evangelicals did indeed make up a large part of the ownership or control of content he would no doubt have been fired by the evangelicals also.
      However calling this a anti semitic tirade is nonsense. If there is a lot of Jewish ownership involved and there is evidence that there is, they are going to slant content in favor of their minority group and their group's interest the same way evangelical owners or Cuban owners devoted to overthrowing Cuba would slant content in their agenda's favor. We have all seen even highly respected figures like Carter, Freeman, Tutu, W&M savaged by Jewish writers,/elements/ activist in the press so to deny this attempt by some in a position to do so, to control public opinion regarding Jews, primilarily in the Israel issue, is nonsensical.
      While group or interest influenced media and press is detrimental to the country it is unfortunately what it has come to in the US in many cases.
      And Americans should, and should be free to, complain, criticize and point this out wherever they see it regardless of who or what group it involves.
      Just don't do it if you are also working for the group you are criticizing unless you want to lose your job.

    • I would have to disagree with your statement. Discussion of Jewish influence in media, or whether or not it exist, is not any different than discussion or speculation about any other group", corporations or whom ever, with certain interest or possible influence ...much less anti semitic.

      There are no "criticism exemptions" or 'taboos" any longer for anyone. ..discussions in this country have been out of the censorship lane for a long time now.

      The loose use of the definition of anti semite/ anti semitism doesn't work in your favor or the Jews favor and certainly doesn't change anyone's opinion on the subject. If anything, unjustified use of slurs toward people expressing their opinions, regardless of whether right or wrong, just encourages them to be more least it does you can see...and I recommend it to others.
