gooddude1583 saidrealifedad I couldn't disagree with you more about this issue!
You are hypocritical by trying to compare the ruthless of regime of Assad to Israel. I have read some of you twisted observations before so I guess it shouldn't come by any surprise. Not to mention the own ruthless conduct of Russia in Georgia and Chechnya and China in Tibet.
Your attempt to push Israel to any issue is poor at best.
I will not discuss this issue with you on this thread as this thread is about the people in Syria!
More than 5000 people there were killed in the past year and most of were deliberately targeted by the government forces. As we speak the Syrian army is Shelling houses in Homs where hundreds of civilians were killed and thousands injured.
The topic is about what's going on in Syria and need to act now to stop the bloodshed!
you said: "your attempt to push Israel to any issue is poor at best" Isn't Israel in the Middle East ? Doesn't the US Veto any effort to call out Israel for its inhumanity in regard to killing Palestinians, pushing over their homes and the like? The answer in both cases is YES, so in that case if that combination is going to play bad bully in the Middle East, then its hypocritical to call out Russia and China for its Veto over some other Middle East regime for the same things we're trying to get by with.
Besides, Israel likes to tout its being the only Middle East Democratic principled state, then by god it damn well ought to act like one or it naturally Isolates and delegitimizes itself. Every week in the Israeli Papers are examples of very undemocratic actions against the Palestinians,
An international agency just issued its 2011 reports, the other day that Israel has displaced and made homeless more Palestinians by destroying their homes for foreign Jewish settlers than in several years before. What a really nice and peaceful gesture toward peace with its Middle East neighbors.
I see you must think that as long as its us doing it ------all is well, we can justify it all by propaganda, with Israel its the 'palestinians' made me do it, with the US its 'sadams' WMD's made me do it. SO ITS ALL GOOD WHEN WE DO IT, so this gives us license to walk in to the UN and stand up and point fingers at the rest of the world at their killings, But G-Damn-it, don't bring up my own killings, because that's anti semitic, or that's anti west.
Do you actually believe the rest of the world overlooks what we've done in Iraq, what Israel has done to the Palestinians with our Veto approval?
Do you actually believe we have any room at all to talk against any other nation with our record in the Middle East over the last ten years? How many did our first ten minutes of bombing kill in Iraq over the Neo Con lies about WMD? Was it 5000, maybe 10,000 ? Was that OK and does that give us the license to stand in judgement against Syrias Actions ?
Israel is in the Middle East, the US consistently backs up its bad behavior with 'Carte Blanche' backing by a Veto, so effectively our leaders have us just as involved as Israel itself in the Middle Eastern affairs.
WHEN YOU LIVE IN A GLASS HOUSE YOU DON'T THROW STONES,
IF YOU'VE GOT A LOG IN YOUR EYE IT'S KINDA DUMB TO POINT OUT THE SLIVER IN THE OTHER GUYS EYE.
IF YOUR THE BLACK KETTLE YOU DON"T TRY TO DIMINISH THE POT OVER ITS BEING BLACK.
Israel has no room to talk or brag against any of its neighbors because of its actions against the Palestinians and other neighborhood attacks and because of US 'Carte Blanche' approval of their actions as well as its record in Iraq, is just as Isolated and Hypocritical over this supposed moral outrage toward Syria.
I don't approve in the least in these Killings of Syrians, no more than I do of US killings through unnecessary wars to please the Neo Cons, or the Israeli's shooting Palestinian children under age 12 throught the head by its snipers.
Just think about it, we have no credibility to go around the world interfering and interjecting our 'justice' and holding others up to standards that we broke by thousands more times.
