  1. You know, The U.S. involvement is left out of the recent violence.
    By signed agreement, the U.S. is to withdraw all non-combatant troops by Augest
    (whatever noncombatant means, it is 50,000 permanent troops)
    About six months before the elections, Obama was saying , if there is any violence, we would
    have to dely the withdrawal.
    Need I say more ??? You can bet there is probably a CIA station chief behind the bombings.
    It is not a civil war !!!!!!!!!!!!! Thay all want us gone except the U.S. proxy, which is both men
    that ran for president. Just a bunch mor doublespeak fish food from the media.

  2. The elephant in the room consists of the several Mossad terrorist squads that have roamed Iraq since the burning of the Koran library. WE have made Iraq into another Palestine. Another Zionist conspiracy that works to the extreme disadvantage of America and it's soldiers.

  3. Cut the crap with the "Zionist conspiracy" already ; normally this is beneath replying to, but I've seen so much of this pseudo-intellectual spamming of canned ideologies on internet that I want to puke. Comments like these help undermine the efforts of those who actually care about the Palestinians. Among the worst destruction immediately following the takeover and partial destruction of Baghdad was the burning and looting of some of the most beautiful treasures of Mesopotamian history while American soldiers watched, yes. Does the Mossad engage in criminal activities like the CIA (and others, the list is long)? Absolutely, but surely dwarfed by many other organizations in the region. Do your comments help the situation? No.
    And it's "ITS soldiers", not "it's", damnit…

  4. Well, technically, anything illegal two or more Israelis do on behalf of Israel *is* a "Zionist conspiracy."

    Just saying…

  5. [...] the force of the U.S. government, the “political concerns” are less a factor than internal instability and extreme violence may make it seem. These [...]

  6. Hey Rob… it's destructions, not destruction, damnit…

  7. hey Rob… it's destructions…not destruction…damnit

  8. "destruction" is a concept. "destructions" is debatable.
    Hijacking this good interview for a discussion on "zionism" or a grammatical squabble is more than debatable.
    mea culpa, I shouldn't have opened my mouth.

  9. you really don't know much about the mosaad, do you?
