  • 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

      • Interesting. I hadn't heard about that.

        As a matter of accuracy however, since this page will end up getting indexed somewhere, I feel obliged to point out that (a) the entire crew was not killed as some crew members are quoted extensively in the article; and (b) the US covered it up themselves as there was an election coming so it's hardly in their interest to make much of a fuss about it now.

        BTW - It's not that I disagree with you on the need to deal with Israel's breach of UN resolutions. Oh and we coul

        • I feel obliged to point out that (a) the entire crew was not killed as some crew members are quoted extensively in the article

          I was going to correct this but I see you already did. I thought I'd mention that we had one of the surviving crew members speak at a military function when I was stationed at Fort Meade. Now *there* was a man who hated Israel.

          In case anyone is wondering *why* they attacked our ship, it was an attempt to draw us into the Yom Kippur War. Israel was rather pissed that we weren't

          • The ship was listlening to radio broadcasts that incriminated Israel in genocide so it was desteroyed before the secret got out. This is well documented.

            • Oops, I thought it happened during the Yom Kippur War, not the Six Day War. I'd be wary of a story like this though, simply because it relies on supposedly classified information that has supposedly been leaked. It's not impossible, though.

              Oh, and wacking prisoners is hardly something that's unique to Israel. Happens in almost every war on every side.
