Willie Peter has been around since christ lost his bicycle, and most folks don't really consider it on par with the really bad stuff.

It isn't friendly, but hardly the stuff of war crimes furor.

Just sayin'.
Since I pretty much think both sides in this conflict are insane and finding a "good guy" is impossible.


I don't blame the Israelis for anything they do because if people kept sneaking onto buses and blowing them up where I lived I'd lose my cool, too. It would be one thing if the suicide bombers targeted soldiers, but they target every day citizens. If you don't want to call that kind of warfare terrorism, that's your thing. When you have families with pictures in their homes of toddlers wearing suicide bomber jackets, you lose my sympathy.

Yeah, but they don't usually show WHY those people are doing this stuff.

Living in a police state where your basic life necessities are cordoned off by a hostile force, watching your people die and suffer could drive one to become a "terrorist".

One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.
I think that was from Commando.

I somewhat agree with this.

At this point in time, I honestly would rather us get out completely and drill anwar.

No more soldiers, no more money, no more help, no more anything.

My only issue with that, is no more policing the place to make it really tough for those idiots to actually acquire WMD.

Our president has just sent 17,000 more troops to war.
