  • As far as the question goes, our economy is falling apart and here we are providing WMD to Israel so they can kill Palestinian babies while their economy is strong.

    I'd say I feel pretty outraged about it.

  • I don't think that there's any country that is completely innocent. There's always wars going on all around the world. Horrible things happen. I'm not proud of it, but it doesn't make me any less patriotic either. In most cases we don't know the whole story behind these things so we can't fully understand the reasoning behind it.

  • I'm sorry you feel that way gemgem, I guess I always thought babies were 100% innocent. I didn't know of anyone else who felt differently until you posted. So I guess you support the air raid on the school in Gaza today?

  • The men at pearl harbor, the people of Hiroshima, the 6 million Jews that dies in the Holocaust....none of them are completely innocent, none of them deserved it. War is a horrible thing and people die unjustly every day. That doesn't mean you should hold it against the ENTIRE COUNTRY. I didn't kill any one. Neither did gemgem.

  • Hey OP--

    I'm sure Obama will "take care of things" then we can just worry about all of the AMERICAN casualties of innocent AMERICAN babies and children that will undoubtedly occur, by those "peace loving" islamic militants! Does that make you feel better?!

  • I'm more concerned about my tax dollars going to support illegal immigrants, and multi-generational welfare recipients!

  • Sorry Anonymous this isn't an Obama post, you can pout about who won in another post. BTW didn't you hear that Obama is FOR Israel? I guess you didn't know that 9/11 happened during Bush either. The rock you are hiding under must be pretty comfy. ; )
