Obama is Anti-Israel?

The idea that Barack Obama is anti-Israel simply because he hasn't bombed Iran yet is so absurd that it doesn't even merit mentioning, but, since it's been shoved down the nation's throat by the likes of Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, our country really needs to understand what a colossally horrible idea it would be. Yes, by all means, let's go get into another war and let's be sure that we charge it onto the national credit card, which is already trillions and trillions and trillions of dollars in debt thanks to our other needless wars. That way, we can feel all patriotic about sending our kids off to die and sticking their little brothers and sisters with the bill while we blow up brown people and take their oil. Yes, that's the American dream, folks. So sayeth the GOP. The violent, incendiary rhetoric being spewed out right now is nothing short of terrifying, and I'm truly thankful that none of the Republican candidates have any shot at stepping foot into the White House. The LAST thing our country needs is yet another war, this time with nuclear weapons involved. What is it going to take before America finally learns from its mistakes? Total collapse, it would seem.

Your rant is predicated on the idea that Obama won't lead us to the same very stupid end result.

Seems there is this little idea that freedom of speech is allowed in this country.

Unless it infringes on the "sensibilities" of some race, religious, or politically-based group with economic and/or government-based POWER.

Do you not recognize sarcasm when you read it ?

The last line was structured to fit my definition of sarcasm.

 

More to the point of the thread---I hope Obama, and all presidents to come, will treat Israel no differently than any other country.

I am tired of the U.S. taking the role of the protectors of Israel.Israel is itself supposedly a free and independent state.

If they start an actual shooting war, let them finish it without our help.

The U.S. should NOT be the military arm of Israel, drafted to fight their percieved enemies, no questions asked.

If Israel should ACTUALLY be attacked, let's go kick some Iranian azz.

If Israel STARTS armed conflict, we should stay out of it.

You notice I said we should help Israel if they are attacked.....Not that we should aid any country attacked by Israel.

I suppose I will be labeled anti-Semitic for the above statements, but I never side with the aggressors and we've lost too many soldiers fighting in Iraq on Israel's behalf.

Any criticism of America is anti-American. Unless you don't like the guy in the White House, in which case, it's your civic duty. And even then, everything's his fault, not America's.

The reason that World War I got out of hand so fast and beyond any one country's control is because just about every nation-state in the European continent was pledged to "come to the aid" of other countries with military response, with all available speed and power. So, when a Serbian National killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife, Austria when after Serbia, part of the Balkans. Instead of trying to force both sides to stand down, both sides called in their military partners, and the whole thing devolved into a bloody stalemate for 3 1/2 years. That's why so many countries will spend weeks or months on negotiations doing nothing; because the alternative is a shooting war that could pull in their neighboring states and strike up a new World War.

So much butthurt.

 

If find it amusing that the world is going to #### rather quickly while everyone sits around and plays the blame game.

 

Left, right, center, up, down...It doesn't matter.

 

Put all that aside, and start thinking up ways to solve the problems.

 

And then start acting on that.

Yes Israel is a free and independent state, but they need our help, and they need it badly.

 

They are literally surrounded by mindless zombies who want their brains, I mean land.

 

The only place that used to be free from the zombies was the north east (The Mediterranean), but now they have mindless zombies coming in from Turkey.

For those of you taking notes, THAT'S referring to Muslims pejoratively.
;-p

OT: We as a country have helped defend Israel because it is good political policy, both domestically and foreign. For a long time, Israel was the only real democracy in both name AND practice in that part of the world.

Also, a stable Middle East is also good for oil production, as sad as that is to admit. Neither us, Russia, or China really wants a shooting war to start there, because our collective economies are dependent on steady oil production.

We should both defend & help Israel but when Israel's former Mossad Chief calls bunk claims by Netanyahu that "WE HAFTA HIT IRAN NOW!!!!" Then obviously u hafta question the official story.

 

You can be pro-Israel & still be anti-war. There are still a large number of Israelis who want peace with their neighbors.

I'm not talking about Muslims.

 

It's not about Muslims.  I know, I live with, and I work with many Muslims.

 

It's about the type of brain-dead retard who would strap a bomb to his chest and blow up himself just to kill other people.

 

My mother used to work with special needs pre-shcoolers.  The kind of kids with severe disabalities.  Those kids had more intillegence than the suicide bombers.
