    Better yet, cut off all aid to all of the nations there, pull out every US troop in any nation in the region and let them all blow themselves to hell.

    There's not a single nation in the region worth the shit we've put up with for more than sixty years.

    So they've got us by the gas tanks.

    If this was TRULY about the oil, we would have thrown Israel under the bus decades ago. ISrael has precisely ZERO oil. Those who despise Israel have all the oil.

    The US shares the fear with Israel that the chaos in Syria allows chemical weapons to fall in the hand of terrorist groups in general (some are part of the insurgence) and Hisbollah in particular (delivered by the Syrian government). An attack on any chemical weapons storage depot has been excluded because of the possibility that this causes a major disaster among the populace of the surroundings. Which leaves attacking convoys.

    This isn't even the first air strike of this kind. Nobody gives a shit.

    So...we're supporting Israel cos it's the right thing to do --that is, helping out a nation composed of despised outcasts and Holocaust survivors against vicious Islamist murder-bombing terrorists, who are supported (and suppressed -- keeps 'em feisty!) by even more evil undeservedly oil-rich brutal misogynist nominally-Islamist monarchies, then?

    Sounds good to me.

    We really should let xox have his rage. Someone needs to be mad, seeing as how the rest of the world doesn't really care.

    The worst mistake post World War II, IMO, was the UN creating the state of Israel out of land owned by other people for literally more than a thousand years.

    Create a homeland out of part of Germany and protecting that would hae been more justified and would have lead to fewer problems. Stealing land from people who held that land for millenia to make up for the crimes of a dictator was a horrible mistake.

    Genie is out of the bottle. No going back now. And no solution to the violence.

    Ever.

    It could end with mankind being completely extinct, though.

    I've heard some good antisemitism in my time, but Jews as the root cause of human extinction is top of the list. Kudos?

    They actually owned a lot of that land already. On top of that, by the end of WWII they comprised about a third of the inhabitants. After WWII, there was a huge influx of Jewish refugees into the area, many arriving before the state of Israel was created. The UN was just recognizing a fait accompli.

    Pointing out there are other people that you're tarring with your overtly racist and antisemetic brush doesn't make it better.

    Don't think that facts will sway the racist.
