  1. The ” Mid-East dynamic ” will never change to the point where we don’t back the Talmudic Pharasaical Zionists against the Christian and Muslim arabs to the delight of Evangelical armageddonites and American “neo-cons” like Kristol, Krauthaamer and Perle who really only love Israel and tolerate America inasmuch as it resembles Israel and is subservient to it’s interests…but during last nights debate an image in my mind made me smile: it was Sarah Palin strapped down to the deck of a replica of the USS Liberty and US fighter jets re-enact the Israeli attack complete with torpedos, 50 cal. rounds and last, but certainly not least, the napalming of the deck. Sarah ” the only flag in my office is an Israeli flag” Palin might just enjoy it..

  2. http://www.blacklistednews.com….according to an aide to the President that is exactly what she told Peres when she met him…

  3. Iran could drop nuclear devices (if it had any) on the US’s largest bases in Iraq and it still would not compare to the deaths caused by the US PLAYING BOTH SIDES IN THE IRAN?IRAQ War. So suffer in your occupation America.

  4. Not even Saddam’s shamelessly violent administration could even come close to the kinds of civilian murder that America has achieveed in just six years.

  5. The real issue is, the Middle East would have no problems supporting America if they would just address the issue of Isreal. Quite simply, continue to ignore it and the situation will continue on its present path until one day the inevitable will happen as it has before. For it is your weakness and inability to even recognize the folly of US/Israeli policy that has led us to this point. Address the grievances and regain your preeminence in the world or go down attempting to protect people that couldn’t care less about you except of course for your money. Here is a simple test refuse funding and see how popular your country is with Israel.

  6. The “problem” with Iran is all about Israel maintaining it’s nuclear monopoly in the ME….that’s all..
