    Tend to agree. We need to stop cutting checks to everyone, step back and let them sort it out.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    It's the Middle East. They've been fighting and killing each other for 5000 years.

    The worst thing the USA ever did is pick a side.

    So we needed to, because it was the Cold War and Russia had already picked a side and it was called Egypt. Carter tried to bring everyone to the peace table but the Egyptians decided to whack their own guy instead.

    But really it was a mess starting in 1945 when NOBODY wanted to make a place for what remained of the European jews and even though there already was a zionist movement, it really picked up steam when the European war concluded.

    I hope Israel starts stacking bodies and leveling city blocks of their enemy’s.

    Launch a rocket from there, great we will destroy the whole area.

    No, we picked the right side. Israel has been and continues to be a strong ally. They have often supported us when no other country would and have provided us with intelligence when no other country could. In the Arab Israeli conflict, one side has the moral high ground and one side does not.

    We picked the right side.

    I agree 100%.

    Trump cut the money off for the Palestinian Authority and we had quite.

    Biden gives them a ton of money and the violence starts.

    The USA is broke, I wish Israel would tell the USA keep the money you need it worse than we do.

    But what started out as a strategy during the cold war, is still in place. The dumbest thing Israel ever did was the Camp David accords with Egypt. But who knew the USSR was going to disappear. Egypt with out the USSR could not fight a war with Israel. The aid to Egypt today just keeps the military in power, they are not popular with the people of Egypt

    Israel is pretty corrupt. Them snitching out a common enemy is not “being an ally”. IDGAF what they do as long as it doesn’t cost a single US dollar or US life.

    They got 18 year olds. They have quite a defense complex. Get yo Jihad on, son.

    Echoing Uni-Vibe, picking a side was stupid as hell. They have been fighting there since literally Bible days and they haven’t gotten sick of it yet. Nothing new.

    I value yoni’s perspective more than everybody’s chest thumping over a country you don’t even live in. He is absolutely correct. We’re broke. Stay out of it.

    And miss me with “God’s chosen people”. That’s BS. Either we’re praying to the same god and He loves us all as His children or we have different gods. I don’t think He really gets off on us killing each other. Maybe it’s because I was reading the Book of Esther last night on my phone because I was kinda bored and sorta morose. It always kinda cheers me up. Stopping a war with love.

    I firmly believe life would be enhanced if everybody got a life and didn’t start shit.
    Just saying.

    So no, I won’t get oorah about children on either side losing arms, parents, vision, hearing, or life in a rocket attack all because someone got up in their feelings.

    The thing is though that Pali rags are genuinely nasty MFers. Not every single human, but as a general rule. About a decade ago, during a relatively peaceful stretch some outfit did a survey. "What do you want most for your children?". Number 1 with a bullet, "To kill jews and be a martyr." Really F'ing great parental values there. F those people. They have the leadership they want and deserve. Worthless, murderous scum leading simply worthless nasty people.
