Wow, hes right. No one has ever used themselves as a wepon against a
larger force.</sarcasm>


Once again the article forets to mention this situation has been going on
for hundreds of years. This lattest round is just one of a number of
historic conflicts in that region. Its pretty clear that peice of
realestate will be problematic for the very basic reason that each side
thinks God Lord Almighty Alah Jeveoah Bubba Bob Dobbs has given them the
deed to it.

American is not the solution, just as Great Britian was not the solution
before nor any country is after us.

Pure and simple, the problem is the mindset that values the rightfull
claim of thier god over the value of other human life.

Until such time as folks get this in thier mindset, its blood and martyrs
in ever increasing volume and scope.
