    Does the Left understand there was NEVER a country called Palestine? The Palestinians were a nomadic people wandering in the areas we call Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, and even Israel. The Jews have been on that land for 3800 years, 3000 years before the birth of Islam. By any analysis, the “occupiers” are the Palestinians as they are occupying areas of Israel.

    Skunkbear, there was an extensive investigation. I was angry when it happened, but as the facts unfolded, I saw what happened. Briefly; Our ship has been 12 miles of the cost and identified as US (green) to the Israelis by a fly-by. We ordered it to move to 20 miles, then later to 100 miles. For some reason, the second command was not executed. Israel saw a ship at 20 miles and marked it red as our ship was suppose to be at 100. Israel failed to identify our ship at 20 miles. A second ship opened fire on Israel, with our ship still marked as red, they fired on it, mistaking it for the ship that had fired on them. It was a dark day between the two countries. The US was neutral in this war, but was covertly sending supplies to the Israelis. Does not make any sense they would bite the hand, so to speak. There are strong emotions to this day, but in war, fatal mistakes are made.

    Regarding the USS Liberty, I remember that. Failed communications on the part of both countries led to that FF. There was no intent. It would serve no purpose. They were being attacked and mis-identified the attacker. The ship was not in the location it had been ordered to. Israel admitted fault, and paid reparations. Does that bring our guys back? No. But, in a hot war with old technology, friendly fire does happen. To call it “intentional” is simply false.

    Did they declare war on us while I was asleep? 50 Cal fire on our boarder agents, last week a chopper crossed the boarder and fired on our guys. WTF? Anybody who’s planning a trip across the boarder should have their head examined! Go to Chipolte’s and have a burrito instead! I take that back, they don’t want us.

    No need to worry, Obama’s idea of military aid is to send happy meals. He’s ball-less in all directions.

    The symbolism fits very well with the relationship that exists between Obama and the Israelis. Wonder what a suicide donkey gets in the afterlife?

    Don’t forget TWA flight 800 off Long Island. Oh… that’s right, we didn’t do that. Please ignore.

    Exactly! Note- in almost every photo above, the description includes “illegal immigrants.” They are that, but they are also kids. Kids who have become pawns in a game they don’t understand. Yes, they need to go back. But yes, we should be kind and compassionate to them while they are here. We can’t take it out on the kids. It is the elitist crud in DC who is to blame, along with the gullible parents who sent the kids up here under the idea they could stay. Of course, maybe we are the gullible ones for believing they won’t stay… In any case, the kids are just caught in the middle. Maybe, like the “Tiger and the Thorn”, someday, they will remember who were the ones that were compassionate.

    Mixed feelings. He’s right about the big countries always meddling in the conflicts, but Putin has blood on his hands on this one. Yea, wait for the investigation, always want proof, but the crime scene has been overrun by locals just like Benghazi. There may no longer be solid evidence there. Plenty of video and audio that tell the story.

    Long been what I thought. Go to the government for the legal union part, go to the church for the marriage in the eyes of God part. The two should have never been combined. The fact that many in the LBGT community don’t want this give me reason to believe many want the power to sue the church out of existence. We already see what small businesses are going through.

    Most cops are good guys. Like every stereotype, there are a few that exceed in making all cops look bad and that is what we see on the news. For every cop filmed shooting a dog, there are probably 100 that would feed it, give it water, or help it escape if it were trapped. We don’t hear about these cops. The result is a really bad image for all.

    How very presidential….
    Hope the RNC has enough of a brain left to save this clip and use it if needed in the 2016 campaign. They probably won’t, and will let it slide like Romney did Benghazi.

    If I remember right, initially, only land owners had the right to vote. Sounds logical to me. After all, they are the ones that have a stake in the game! We need a modern version of this. Perhaps- Only taxPAYERS should have the right to vote! After all, they are the ones who pay all the bills.

    Wait… it was 23, now it is one?
    Are we sure, or is Obama downplaying the whole thing because he is frightened that Vlad will get mad at him and it will wreck his golf game?
    (or hurt his fundraising)

    Well, they actually do a pretty good job reporting -our- news!
    Just not too good at reporting their own news ;)

    RIP Sara Firth. Vlad doesn’t take too well to having his word questioned. No dictators do. We are finding that out first hand here in the states.

    She’ll feel more “at home” in Moscow by the sound of things….
    Think about this… If you lived in an area that had be the target of thousands of missiles, would you not cheer when you government finally decided to take decisive action to stop it?
    I can’t believe the stupidity of the MSM and their propaganda agents sometimes! Maybe they should take a REAL look at life before they open their mouths!

    Oh no! This is going to kick off CNN’s Malaysia Airlines Fetish again. On a serious note, my prayers go out to the victims, who had no involvement in this conflict.

    Wow… Dyslexia can be very entertaining! My first read of the headline had me thinking he ate his own leg. Glad he made it out ok despite the gruesome break.
