Being honest

Why does it feel like somehow in the last fifty years or so, war has become some kind of duplicitous game. It used to be really simple. You and your enemy would get on a battlefield and duke it out. The winner would take over your land, make your life miserable, perhaps kill off everyone of your kind. It was simple. Ok, maybe not so simple, but at least you didn't have to pretend that while you are killing your enemy, you'd rather not be doing this. You'd rather live happily side by side with them, but due to [fill in the blank] it is not possible and hence this terrible thing has to happen.

Obviously this is spurred on by the whole Israel-Lebanon thing, but specifically by the whole pictures affair. Why do we have to say things like, "these nastyWestern journalists tricked the kids into writing on those shells". Blah, blah, blah. Why is it not OK to hate people that are bombing you? I don't expect the poor Lebanese that are getting bombs dropped on their babies to love Israel for it. We're not freakin Jedi for Pete's sake!

Absolutely correct. Israel has the particular disadvantage of having to fight a sweet Western war with a distinctly unsweet, un-Marquis of Queensbury enemy. And they kept being blamed if they refuse to play by Western wars or spout the kind of lovey-dovey talk that Westerners would like.

On a slightly different note, would it be possible to send me your e-mail address? My e-mail is linked to in my profile. Thanks!

Perhaps it's because if you admit you hate, then moonbats say you're no different than the person you hate. Before long, people begin to fall for their warped psychology.

My response? Yes I am different. I'm totally different. I want every muzlim on the planet exterminated and their little moonbat sympathisers. Why? Because I'm sick of innocent people dying at the hands of evil mamsers. I'm sick of Israel not being able to exist in peace. I'm sick of their bloody mosk (spelled wrong intentionally) being on our Temple Mount!

Muzlims and their moonbat sympathisers, want innocent people dead for the sake of their false god and world domination. There's a big difference in motive. :]

Dang I love menopause! LOL
