George Patton's Summer of 1944

There was never an American general more brilliant at what he did. And also a good example of why a great general would make a bad president. He was practically psychotic and had an almost pathological hatred of weakness. While excellent qualities in someone leading the Third against the Nazis, thank God he did not get into politics. Relevant to what's happening now, the most regrettable symptom of his pathology was his reaction to the Holocaust. He thought the Jews deserved it. Not because they were Jewish, but because they let it happen, instead of fighting their oppressors His hatred of weakness led him to conclude that the weak deserve what happens to them. Perhaps this is why his accident occurred--such a lack of pity was going to far in the eyes of God. Still, I like to think he'd be extremely proud of Israel, and what the Jews have accomplished.
So? Kill the children of Hamas, if they're being used as human shields. They're the next generation of terrorists anyways. This is stupid.
These guys aren't really communists. Why would billionaires support communism? What they're trying to do, in a sense, is recreate the Middle Ages, with themselves as the new aristocracy. Washington rules the nation, while they rule Washington. All the regulations insure that no companies rise up to compete with them. A welfare state insures a nation of desperate serfs to serve them. This isn't about the goodness of their hearts, or even the principle vice of communism... this is about... control.
If it were me, I'd punch this clown right in his nose. Apparently a number of people have done that already though.
You know, if anything, this video shows that these two guys would be more likable if they really did act this way, and didn't take themselves so seriously, or were trying to destroy the world.
Kill the leaders, kill their families, kill their neighbors, and kill these stupid volunteers. Brutal? Yes. Unnecessary? No. That the leaders should die, it is obvious. What about their families? Women who brainwash their children to hate Jews and glorify terror, and children who are thus brainwashed. Surviving, they grow up, become the next generation of terrorists and reproduce yet another. Neighbors and stupid volunteers are coolateral damage. Those volunteers set up camp at that building to protect the building, NOT the people in it. If the sick and elderly ought to be spared, then this is where a ground force might be beneficial. The slightly odd thing about having such a center is that these elderly and disabled aren't being cared for by their families, which is what Arabs do. In fact, I've never known them to do otherwise. It's one of those few shining spots in their otherwise foolish culture.

Yeesh. I'm looking at that healthcae system chart, and I'm thinking it's the Microsoft Version. They keep patching it, and every patch makes something else worse.
So.... the Proglodyte-Demorlock faction has been running the schools for decades now, and this is what happens. Just brilliant. And they'd love to have a monopoly on the government. Yeah... we're doomed.
I'm probably the only person on the boards who has actually lived in Israel. In a "Palestinian" neighborhood at that: Atur, aka Har HaZetim, aka the Mount of Olives. It's not so much the Israelis making Arab life miserable in the West Bank as it is the Arabs. They've been receiving money from America, Israel, the UN and many, many Arab nations. They still don't do much to speak of with it. As for the Arabs in Israel proper, they've got full rights. There are fantastic Arab communities in Nazareth, Abu Gosh, the Megiddo valley, and Haifia, for instance. Christian Arabs do quite well in East Jerusalem. Prior to the last intifidah, Bethlehem was doing fairly well too.
