What a shame Drew, now we have to hear the stories of little jewish children blown up at the bus stop over and over again. Why can’t these people just get along? Is there no end to this strife against Jews in the middle east? Why do we have to be involved? 9-11.....then what?
lfw2, there will be no end to the strife until ALL of the radical fundamentalist ragheads are dead. They simply can’t. There is only ONE way, and that will be for those who are NOT radical fundamentalists to purge those that are. Either we kill them all, or they police their own. I mean “heads on pikes in front of the court-house” police their own. Those fuckers clean it up, or we will. Sorry ‘bout that, but that’s it.
Turn the place into a parking lot, the only way there will be peace.
Lease the IAF some B-52s that haven’t been converted to drop all GPS-guided bombs. Run an Arc Light for the entire length and width of the Gaza Strip. Then, do it again.
Gee what a hard group you all are. Not one word about “human rights.” GAK!
Has Israel checked with amnasty intl or human rights watch or the aclu?
Israel sure has changed the rules here and it will be interesting to see how it all plays out. I agree with the parking lot thing. Put the land to good use and build something besides lice farms.
Some interesting comments being made over here as you’d expect.
So far however, no word on Bush’s guilt over this latest violence. And you know it’s his fault.
Left must be wetting themselves.
Nothing is easy in that part of the world and I’ve long given up hope that the muslims will ever come to terms with things.
Israel also has a problem though within the country between those on the far left of which there are too many, and an equal problem with the very far right who won’t agree to any sort of plan the govt. puts forward that isn’t based on strict religious law.
I don’t see that problem ever going away. Do you?
I find it reminiscent of the Catholics and the Protestants in Ireland. I never did get a clear explanation of how that one got solved.
GOF it wasn’t really, the British sold out to the extremists from both sides. Now you have terrorists like Martin McGuiness as Deputy First Minister and for a while Ian Paisley as First Minister. The middle ground has collapsed. The IRA had their balls in a vice in 1996 and support for Irish terrorists pretty much collapsed after 9/11
Rather than run them into the ground Tony Blair sold out and released murderers and assorted scum from prison. They are still around, but now they are more involved in criminality like drugs and extortion rather than blowing up innocent people.
As for Gaza and the “Palestinians” there will be no peace to paraphrase Theoden (thanks Macker) “When you hang from a gibbet at your window for the sport of your own crows, I will have peace with you...” The Palestinians are too deranged with their bullshit islamic ideology to ever be serious about peace. People that vote for terrorists should expect to get a shitcart every now and then.
Grumpy, I think what solved the crisis was a lot of dead people!
The Palestinians are too deranged with their bullshit islamic ideology to ever be serious about peace.
And there it is.
Why are all the rag heads complaining? Supposedly they martyers get 72 virgins, so death is a good thing for them. (Plus they no longer have to live in liceville) We get rid of murderous scum. Every one wins! So Why do Arabs complain? Either they know that Islam is a lie and all that awaits them is eternal damnation, or they are jealous that some palistidiot got pick of the virgins before them.
Only no one’s come back and told the living that they get 72 virgin DEMONS with anvil-shaped genitalia, waiting to disembowel the Islamic martyrs!
(Oh PLEASE let the inline img codes work...)
Here’s a couple of .GIF images I found via Google Image Search on the phrase “I’m a fan of disproportionate response”. I remembered the phrase and the image from the last time the Israelis opened up a can of whup-ass. I’ve saved them on my own webspace so as to not negatively affect anyone else’s bandwidth.
If those don’t come through, here’s the URL’s directly:
AGT, I love those! I’ve now got to figure out how to put those on my header!
Blake: I’m delighted you enjoy the images as much as I do! Here’s hoping you can integrate them into your blog’s header with ease.
This morning, I managed to track the images back to the creator: Baron Bodissey at the Gates of Vienna. Here’s the post: A Matter of Proportion.
At the end of the post is the image-usage permission I was hoping for: “Steal the graphics for your sidebar!” (Consider it done, Baron, and thanks!)
That post contained one more version of the image which I’ve also saved/hosted (basically a smaller version of the second one):
Tiger ... way ta go man. Love it.
Drew .. we should have this here at BMEWS.
I’m working on it Peiper! Thanks AG!
You’re most welcome!
Excellent! I’ll fidget with that in the morning! Thank you!
I like it, too!
