How is a slip for this dress not even on her radar just as a pregnant woman?”

“Ever since she's been with this guy her clothes are getting tackier and tackier - not that they were all that before him. She actually looked best when she was a veritable unknown as only Paris Hilton's childhood friend.”

“He hardly implied it is the fault of the victim. He was very clear that the military CULTURE from time immemorial is predominantly male and aggressive and it's meant to be that way. I went to OCS at Quantico and when we sat down to a meal the first thing we said with vigor was "KILL! KILL! KILL!" Sorry, I'm a woman and I understand that needing to ingrain this mindset coupled with a hypermale enviroment is just a bad combination. I had to shed every feminine aspect of myself just to survive. You couldn't afford to be seen as a woman.

This doesn't reflect on the wonderful, brave women in the military BUT it's the truth about a military environment. Women definitely have a role to play I just don't think it's a combat one in forward areas where you are outnumbered 50 to 1 or more.”

“From everything I have read those children were shot multiple times each. I am sure blood was being spattered everywhere and they may have been huddled in the same general area. It's not at all a reach for a crime scene of that magnitude in a confined area.

You have been really jaded when you don't believe a little kid who went through unimaginable trauma watching every friend she had slaughtered within feet of her.”

“I just saying I don't believe these media vultures. I'm sure she has survived covered in blood but why did they need to bring that up? and added some juice to it like " from tip to toe" and repeating several times "covered in blood"? there is no news value in that? only thrust for blood.”

“Okay...all this tells me is he had some fundamental mental health issues so SURELY his mother must have taken him to see a therapist, psychologist SOMEONE that actually has files, records and a diagnosis/assessment/profile that the authorities can access.”

“the police are working on getting subpoenas for those records, but from a therapist standpoint, I will tell you we are trained to be extremely careful and vague when we write notes in files just for that reason, because parents, relatives, etc. will sometimes have them subpoenaed for reasons that are not of pure intention”

“Seriously Sol...you need to go back and read Theodore Hertzl Zionist manifesto (as he is the father of Zionism) and the Balfour Declaration.Jewish children, Palestinian children, Somali children, Chinese children, Rwandan children,American children ALL DESERVE THE RIGHT TO A SAFE PLACE TO GROW UP. As far as massacres - read about Sabra and Shatila. We could go tit for tat to no avail. But at least get the fundamental facts correct. ”

Sol Robinson on Dec 17, 2012 at 19:03:32

“We can go tit for tat back until the 1930s. And then we get to 1929, the hebron massacres, and before that the 1920 and 1921 riots.
Look, originally both sides had no real beef with the other, there were various opinions among the Zionists about what would happen to the Palestinians, there was no strong push to get rid of them initially, that developed as the violence escalated.  
Likewise, there was some encouraging sentiment around the time of said Balfour proclamation  from the Arabs including this from a Mecca newspaper in 1918, right after the Balfour proclamation was issued. 
"The resources of the country [Palestine] are still virgin soil and will be developed by the Jewish immigrants (...) we have seen the Jews from foreign countries streaming to Palestine from Russia, Germany, Austria, Spain, and America. The cause of causes could not escape those who had a gift of deeper insight. They knew that the country was for its original sons [abna'ihi-l-asliyin], for all their differences, a sacred and beloved homeland. The return of these exiles [jaliya] to their homeland will prove materially and spiritually an experimental school for their brethren who are with them in the fields, factories, trades and all things connected to the land."

Don't get me started on the genetic linkage between Palestinians and Jews that has been proven recently. We are BOTH from there.”

“I believe they disagreed when they wanted to take all their land.”

Sol Robinson on Dec 17, 2012 at 14:02:55

“There was NO EFFORT TO TAKE ALL OF THEIR LAND.
The Zionists had only one plan originally, which was to buy land and set up a Jewish state on that land. If the Palestinians hadn't responded to that with violence, then none of this would have happened. 
Period.
Oh and by the way, during the Hebron massacre a Jewish child was decapitated. But I guess that was the Jew's fault too right?”
