  • How can the US forgive and forget the US ship that isreali fighters straffed and bombed, killing the entire crew to cover up intercepted radio transmissions about the massacre of palestinian civillians by the isreali armed forces.

    Ignoring the blatent trolling for a moment, what's your source for the last paragraph ?

    • panorama and the independant and the guardian [guardian.co.uk].

      google for USS Liberty.

      This isn't a troll. I am serious when I say that Isreal is a far bigger danger in the middle east than Iraq.

      Iraq is only a danger to Isreal and possibly Kuwait - neither has a better Human Rights or Denmocracy record than Iraq - They just happen to be US Allies.

      Desteroying Isreals military infrastructure and weapons of mass destruction would bring peace far quicker than bombing iraq - so bombing isreal makes more sense than bombing

        I seem to recall Iraq starting a war with Iran and using chemical weapons in that war. So, Iraq is a danger to more than Kuwait and Israel.

        Saudi Arabia was quite concerned when Iraq swept into Kuwait that they would keep going and occupy their country as well. It was only quick military build up by the Americans and European allies that prevented this, probably. The Saudi's certainly couldn't have stood up to Iraq without help.

        Sadam Hussein is a pan Arabist who dreams to unite all of the Arab countries under his rule. This is clear. Why is he stockpiling tons of VX, Anthrax and missiles with more-than-defensive reach otherwise?

        Human Rights? I don't recall Israel doing anything like gassing tens of thousands of Kurds in a genocidal war. I don't recall Kuwait committing genocide, either.

        The only massacre of Palestinians I can recall were the camps in Lebanon and Israelis didn't do that, Lebanese Christians did. Not defending the killing of innoncents, but the Lebanese Christians had quite a great deal of hatred built up for the Palestinians after the Palestinian refugees and Syrians destroyed what was once one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

        Note the political, and perhaps anti-Semetic, element in the move to indict Sharon over these massacres. The Lebanese Christian militia members, who actually committed the atrocities, goes unmentioned and undicted. Only the Jew is blamed.

        Perhaps the Lebanese are being excused because they could have been looking over to what King Hussein of Jordan felt was necessary when the Palestinians tried to take over his country in a bloody coup. Nobody EVER seems to remember Hussein's bloody massacres of Palestinian civilians. Nor do you ever hear mention of the massacre of Maronite Christians at the hands of the PLO.

        As to Democracy, Iraq's record on Democracy is better than Israel's? Please. Arabs vote in Israeli elections. I don't recall any examples of Jews voting in Arab elections. Of course, that's because none of the Arab countries really have real elections. Yeah right, Iraq's record of Democracy is a good one, all right.

        • From your previous post:

          ...How can the US forgive and forget the US ship that isreali fighters straffed and bombed, killing the entire crew to cover up intercepted radio transmissions about the massacre of palestinian civillians by the isreali armed forces.


        Palestinian civilians? Is there any evidence of this at all? The references you cite say they were Egyptian soldiers. A war crime, certainly, but not the same spin on it at all.

        • Iraq started a war with Iran after America forced out the democratically elected leader and installed a puppet and gave him chemical weapons to use on 'them dirty arabs'.

          Saudi arabia had more than enough military might to handle Iraq. It buys more than the entire iraqi army every couple of years for gods sake. That and the oil are why America pretends not to notice the absence of democracy or human rights.

          As for human rights - Kuwait is no democracy and has many human rights issues - do you americans no
