Ahmed Jabari, Hamas Military Chief, Topped Israel's Wanted List

Ahmed Jabari, Hamas Military Chief, Topped Israel's Wanted List

Commented Nov 16, 2012 at 08:33:06 in World

“Haaretz:

Israel killed its subcontractor in Gaza

The political outcome of the operation will become clear on January 22, but the strategic ramifications are more complex: Israel will have to find a new subcontractor to replace Ahmed Jabari as its border guard in the south.”

“I guess we're only allowed to talk about the things rich people want us to talk about. Time to change the tax code.”

A Nuclear-Armed Pakistan Teeters on the Edge

Commented Dec 28, 2007 at 08:14:33 in Politics

“Hey, Joe. Maybe someone should have thought about all that when the CIA was busy creating Al Queda back in the 1980's... ya think?”

A Moment of Clarity on Pakistan Policy

Commented Dec 28, 2007 at 08:09:56 in Politics

“Musharraf involved in the plot to kill Bhutto is a SECONDARY question?

Not acceptable, my friend. Musharraf and the military is responsible for Bhutto's assassination. And we, the United States, are responsible for Musharraf and the military being in power.

Make no mistake about this... ultimately it is OUR foreign policy that killed Bhutto.”

“Indeed, sir, that is true. Dignity and Truth will prevail, and the depths of the Bush depravity that has infected so many will be Hourly revealed. Bush and Cheney have gone too far too often not to be accused of Treason.”

SunSinger on Dec 28, 2007 at 11:32:26

“How quick we are to deflect the focus from the actual killer: the man who pulled the trigger. Yes, I know, saying he did it is out of fashion for the prevailing liberal thought these days is that all that is bad in the world has arisen out of policies made in America.

Sorry, but that line of reasoning excuses just about everyone who actually is an extremist.”

A Moment of Clarity on Pakistan Policy

Commented Dec 28, 2007 at 08:06:13 in Politics

“Maybe if the CIA hadn't mucked around in Pakistan, the Taliban wouldn't exist and neither would Al Queda. It is the CIA that created the extremists. It is the United States that has continued to support military dictatorships in Pakistan. This is not a Bush-Cheney issue, this is an issue of what has been standard U.S. policy in countries around the world.

If we continue to mistreat other countries, this type of thing will continue to happen.”

Rocketmind on Dec 28, 2007 at 13:37:17

“The CIA and FBI are involved in all terrorism- Shakespeare would have been very impressed with the theater they act out- "mistreat? the word is far too weak: US sanctioned 'genocide' is a more appropriate word.”

pkafin on Dec 28, 2007 at 09:07:17

“Well, yes and no.

Some of these things have momentum of their own. If the U.S. didn't exist, there would still be extremists in the world.

Organizations like the Taliban may very well have come into being even if the U.S. was an extremely isolated country.

So, while I agree that "If we continue to mistreat other countries, this type of thing will continue to happen", I do not agree taht if we cease to mistreat other countries, this type of thing will cease to exists. Likewise, without our help in the first place, these things would happen anyway.

Repressive governments, abused religions, and political assasinations predate the U.S. by thousands of years.”

In Memory of Benazir Bhutto, Cut U.S. Ties to Musharraf

Commented Dec 28, 2007 at 07:51:15 in Politics

“I think the extremism in Pakistan is only that that has been encouraged by the CIA over the years.

How about cutting all military and intelligence ties and money to the Pakistani government?

Maybe then there would be peace in Pakistan.”

U.S. Options for a Post-Bhutto Pakistan

“Puh-leeze. Musharraf killed Bhutto. Supporting the dictatorship in Pakistan is THE problem not the solution.”

How Not to End a Career: The Racism of James D. Watson

Commented Oct 18, 2007 at 15:32:50 in Politics

“In case I didn't explain enough, Dr. Watson's employer is Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Their largest source of revenue is the Federal Government... our money.

I think it's a good idea to defend our funding and ask for the removal of Dr. Watson from the staff of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.”

“Following WWII--as many know--former Nazis, e.g., Werner von Braun were secretted away to the U.S. and hired as the core of the U.S. rocket dev. program. Should he be tried 'ex post facto'?

Ideological 'purity' is a dangerous course.... As the old A-S sage related: "Sometimes it takes a swine to show you where the truffles are..."!”

Idiocracy

Commented Oct 12, 2007 at 20:23:24 in Politics

“The ultra rich run this country. Maybe it's their fault that the media we have is a complete piece of junk. Give the people bad info and you get bad results... sounds like what's going on to me.

Everyone I know watches The Daily Show for their news... that should tell you right there.

The ultra rich apparently want a quasi police state and they've got it. I think it's a management problem... not an employee issue.”

Frustration Over Iraq Could Lead to Dem Primary Challenges

Commented Sep 8, 2007 at 11:35:23 in Politics

“Getting rid of conservative Democrats sounds good to me. Kick out the jerks and get decent people into office that will do their job. We don't need the crappy leadership the Pelosi/Reid team has given us. Either that or a new party. Something. Anything.”

Cheney YouTube Clip Reveals Massive Dem Failure

Commented Aug 17, 2007 at 10:45:37 in Politics

“The Dem's have been emasculated. With the exception of a very few, the party appears ready to start a war with Iran.

I think the problem lies with Corporate America. There's some big money fueling the right wing shift in the U.S. and it's been going on for quite some time.

Where are the unions now as compared to 30 years ago? Why is political talk radio 91% conservative? Those are just two indicators of many.

I believe the problem is deep and wide and perhaps un-fixable.”

yellowdogSC on Aug 18, 2007 at 12:44:24

“wm,

Why is talk radio 91% conservative?

Because liberals are, by definition, free thinkers. They have many interests, so no one topic can possibly hold their interest.

Conservatives have one interest: SELF interest. Anything involving selfishness or greed is ON TARGET.

Could be?”

Chavez At UN: Bush "The Devil...Came Here Talking As If He Were The Owner Of The World"...

Commented Sep 22, 2006 at 08:17:21 in Home

“What was not shown on the news...

You can view the speech here in its entirety... take notice at the end of very long applause...
While the Chavez speech played here in the U.S. as something offensive or ridiculous,
the diplomats listening to the speech live at the UN gave Chavez a long applause.
