Just today Iran threaten Israel Once again with an explosion if they continue the military action against the hamas terrorists.
We assume they mean a nuclear explosion, things are very very dangerous right now.
Please pray earnestly for Jerusalem and all Israeli People and the USA and the president we have.
Sha-alu Shalom Yerushalayim
(Pray For The Peace of Jerusalem)

You fundamentalists kill me. You look the other way when Israel does something because of it's biblical link. Did you forget the jews crucified Christ?
is people that blame a whole race/religion for what happened 2000 years ago. I don't think any of them are still around...
Your post sounds awfully close to antiSemitism and knowing how politically correct you ultra-Liberals like to be,I'm wondering what's in your KoolAid. What does "fundamentalism" have to do with Alex's remarks? "Jews" killed Jesus liek "Americans" killed McKinley, Lincoln, Garfield and Kennedy. Ethel and Julius Rosenburg were killed by "Americans". Your point is obviously lost in translation someplace. MOST Americans admire the Israeli stance against tyranny and terrorism simply because bleeding hearts like you don't have balls enough to stand up against the wrongs of this world unconditionally. With people like you, once the knee jerk reaction is over, cut & run is your only answer. If you doubt that, just look at your comments about the only U.S. President we've had in the last decade who had balls to fight back and where that's gotten him with you and your people. The FIRST thing liberals starting doing was counting corpses and making them into headlines. Thank God WWII was fought over 60 years ago. We have too many cowards and sob-sister liberals to survive something like that today.
Thank you George, you nailed it! These liberals are sending a message to the rest of the world that we are weak. And beleive it or not, as human beings we are part of nature, and in nature the weakest actting animal is the first one a predator goes for!
GOT to be. Almost fell for it.
It's times like this I like you best. You know how bleeding heart liberals think. What Cecil doesn't know is the USA because of liberals like him has kept Israeli hands tied behind Israels back for years. All to appease the Arab world that would, if they had the opportunity, cut Cecil's head off and show the pictures to his family.
The whole Arab world better hope that Iran never gets the guts to do a Nuke strike on Israel. Even if they were successful, there would be enough Israeli Nuclear subs in the area to end the Arab world. I don't look forward to anything like that, but the possibility is horrifying and very real. Israel would have taken care of their problems in the Middle East themselves had we let them. The more atrocities against Americans, the closer we are to turning Israel loose. When we do the Arabs and Persians better learn the word DUCK.
I am a registered Republican and actually more of a Libertarian, BUT...Your blind faith to the Right is comical. Iraq was a mistake, and it will never be peaceful in that region. In 2000 more years those savages will still be blowing each other up. We never should have gone in there, and now we are never going to get out of there. If you think we went in there to fight tyranny then you are mistaken. We went in there for Israel, just like we are going to have to tangle with Iran because or Israel. Or banks are controlled by the jews, Hollywood is controlled by the jews, and our government is controlled by the jews. There are dozens of countries in the world that are living under tyranny, why don't we attack them?
Meanwhile, gas is $3 a gallon, taxes are high, the debt is high, healthcare costs are high, insurance costs are high and we think we need to take care of other people in the middle east rather than our own? We need a nationalist stance on things. I will NEVER vote for a democrat, but it won't matter. George Bush and his administration killed the GOP.
In some of the Arab states, because of their belief systems and their governments, the society is so despaired that they believe it's a good thing to strap bombs to their children and blow them up.
They hate us with a zealous hatred that most of us are not acquainted with. If they were able to unify and direct their energies to acquiring weapons of greater variety and in mass quantities, (an ongoing process)they would then be able to attack us in a more meaningful way, on our own soil. In fact we've seen the genesis of that on 9/11.
I don't think anybody would deny that they would if they could.
Iraq was really never about weapons of mass destruction per se. The war in Iraq is an attempt to fight the inevitable battles on our enemy's ground at our timing. It's an attempt to set up and support a government that can bring lasting change to the whole region.
It is possible. There are other Arab states that prove that.
Ronald Reagan said "It is foolish to ignore unpleasant realities." He was vilified as much as Bush and more; and yet he ended the cold war with a real and lasting victory, because he was the right man for the job and he held to his convictions.
Certainly none of us knows the whole story of what's happening and why, but I believe it was certainly time to do something, and not wait for worse.
There is a purpose; a good one. I for one am glad that George Bush is there to handle it.
Comical is an American citizen who is gullible enough to believe everything they read in major media outlets. If Iraq was a "mistake", how do you think the hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi's who were gassed, shot, hanged and tortured clan to death at the hands of the Husseinwould feel about that? It's easy for you to set smug in the comfort of your home and bitch about the price of gas when the women in your life come and go as they please. How about when you drive down to the local McDonalds, you don't need to worry about an IED randomly killing your family. When your kids get on the school bus in the morning you don't have to worry that one of the kids is on a jihad to kill everyone around them with explosives taped to their bodies. Yeah, Iraq sure was a mistake. No reason to worry about some camel dung burning raghead when they are half a world away. Someone else should have provided them with salvation, not us. Someone.
We are already fighting in several of those "dozen other countries" that you mention, but the media isn't given the free ride in those places like Americans have come to expect and the media exploits just for your side show. How stupid can one person be to remark that we "went there for Israel". If anything, we went there to prevent Israel from going. Israel's not hamstrung like the President of this country. We're there to protect the innocents in Iraq as well as free them. Since you have an obvious disdain for Jewish people, maybe you'd like to look up The Seven-Day War of 1967. That's all it took for Israel to eliminate the country of Palestine, give the president of Egypt a heart attack, and pound Lebanon into a pariah country. Israeli citizen know that freedom comes at a price and they spare no cost, tolerate no threats, and dance for no one in securing that right. "Libertarians" like you should really study some before they expose their prejudices and bigotry.
BTW, your "nationalist" policy was tried here in America once before. Woodrow Wilson tried it (he called it "isolationism") and it led to World War I and subsequently the Great Depression. But, silly me, that's history and you can't be bothered with such nonsense, can you?
Do I need to remind you of the "reason" we went to Iraq according to Bush?
Yeah, I though so.
WMDs? Or was it the fact that Saddam refused to comply with UN resolutions and prove he had distroyed the WMDs? Come on tell us.
Case #1 is that they have indeed found buried WMDs and that is only the 500 that they have unclassified. I am sure there is a lot more behind closed doors then what taxidermist know.
Case #2 - well I think anyone who pays attention knows how Saddam dorked the UN and their pathetic weapons inspectors around for 10 years.
The fact is Iraq was not a mistake and will be key in future dealings in the entire region, esp Iran. Doesn't really take a genius to figure that out.
The ones that Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, and Teddy Kennedy said we should do something about? THOSE WMD's? Or were there some others I didn't read about in the NY Times?
Where do you get off telling Nate to stay off the forum? Have you lost your mind? He didn't slander anybody. And you told him to apologize? What's he supposed to say, excuse me for living?
The more Nates we have the fewer Jims we're going to have.
I would rather see all the business owners get on here and mix it up once in a while. You would rather they be "aloof and professional"?
You ever hear of Bill "Superfoot" Wallace? Just because he was the greatest middleweight ever, who struck fear into the hearts of his opponents, he never took any of them lightly or looked down on them.
He destroyed them with single-minded ferocity, whether chump or champion, they got the exact same treatment.
My rather obscure point is that "professional posturing" defines the prima donna. What's wrong with being a real person and forget about the image?
Of course you gotta be ready to kick some butt.
I don't recall telling ANYONE to get off the forums, not that my telling anyone would make a big difference in any case. You'll have to help this feeble mind of mine recall that specific one. I'm always inviting some of these anonymous slugs to get lost, but doing that to someone who left his name escapes me. (Not to imply I DIDN'T, understand.) You wouldn't happen to be "Nate", would you?
Nate from Wildlife Gallery. "Big Dog at Carolina" thread.
I realize he's taking a risk, as any business owner/manager would be. All the more reason to see what he has to say.
My bad, I should have thought that through.
Now that I think about it, I'm sure the stockpiles of WMD are being held secret to help insure the Presidents approval rating wouldn't come up out of the pits.
I agree Iran has to be dealt with as well as North Korea and others. The key factor here is how you deal with it.
Iran has a nutcase at the helm, along with North Korea, both which make it clear that they would like nothing better than to aquire nuclear stockpiles so they can use them. That is what I would call a threat to the US.
Saddam was/is crazier than a pet coon, but he had no realistic way to launch an attack against us. Yes there were terrorist training camps there, but low and behold, we have these things now called smart bombs, bunker busters, 500lb-ers, and so on if you haven't noticed. We obviously can see a training camp from the sky via satellite, so it then would have been appropriate to wipe the camp off the map.
Try to remember back to the pre-war hype regarding mobile weapons labs.."that we had photos of"? Remember the hype regarding the yellow cake that was being aquired. Remember the hype regarding the imminent threat to us from Iraq...etc etc.
These thing have all been proven to be non-existent, whether you want to believe it or not. It's been proven by your statements above...you and the like are scrounging for reasons to validate this, when I can't possibly understand HOW it is possible for you to avoid all of the known truths on the matter that have been exposed after we went in.
Have you ever been lied to? Obviously I'm sure you have, so I ask you, how did you feel about being lied to? From what I see of your posts, it doesn't bother you much, but I personally get a little p@ssed off when I'm lied to on a grand scale.
You said above that "us taxidermists wouldn't know". You almost hit the nail on the head with that. It should have read, "we didn't know.
Now we sit here with things looking better over there thanks to the hard work of 100,000 or so US military personnel on the ground.
When you say that as a result of this war, the middle east will be better off, it's quite obvious to me that you do not really have a grasp on how Islam extremism works.
The objective of Islamic extremists is to overthrow any government in the Islamic world that does not adhere to a fundamentalist version of Islam. This means that when we are gone, we will most likely leave a government that will have a fairly strong grasp on the situation. Then one year down the road, you have another story. Do you honestly think the Islam fundamentalist freaks will be happy with the government that has been set up in Iraq? The answer in case you didn't know, is no.
Bottom line, real threats and construed threats are two different animals, so that's where we need to rely on a President that hopefully in the future will actually take into consideration what his advisors were trying to tell them.
They should just blow the whole damn place up and put up a McDonalds
you know the water and electrical plants that were blown up by Israel? Guess who has insured them and is paying to have it rebuilt? It's us the stupid taxpayer. If you don't believe me look it up.
George I ingored you post. I'm sure its the the usual put downs.
I don't condone Hamas or anyone else. I just don't believe in giving Israel (secular gov. by the way) a free pass.
Oh one more thing. That reglion many of you protect doesn't believe in Jesus remember? You people make no sense.
The Jews are the only one that can persecute and keep weapons of mass destruction. Their country is the size of the state of delaware.
Now why is that ?
Couldn't be because they run OUR country could it. Wake up and smell the Matsa Balls. They control our state department and THEY are the Federal Reserve. They are the reason for all the porn and decadence that abounds in America
They are the ones who destroyed Germany in the '30s not Hitler.
But don't worry it's too late anyway they have the foothold that they have always wanted and the Gentile is his footsoldier.
Happy Landing, you fools.
I am offended when it's politically correct to give Israel a free pass no matter what just because it's the "holy land."
I did see something in a History Channel documentary that literally blew me away. (No pun intended) Does anyone know who the first people were that used a bomb to blow up innocent civillians? I'll give you clue. It wasn't the Arabs. And it didn't target combatants, terrorists, or anything like that.
Here's something else that may be of interest to you blind followers. Read this and see if you come back with the same view of that small country's policies. It was no accident. And it's no conspiracy theory - it's documented fact with witnesses and a U.S. government report.
First, you swear you'll "never" post anything here except in the fish category. Here you are. Then you CLAIM you didn't read my post yet you repond to it. Now you'll make another juvenile claim not to read this one as well. That's twice this week I've caught you in childish games. LMAO.
I never told Nate to get off the site and I never asked him to apologize. Read my comments. I told him that a person in HIS position was doing themselves no good by badmouthing a competitor. I also told him that his badmouthing a WORKER from his competition wasn't very bright. Then I told him that when I find myself in deep kimchi, I try to apologize and move on. The suggestion was there, but hardly a directive. I still think his joining a barroom brawl as he did wasn't very "professional".
"The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant:
It's just that they know so much that isn't so." - Ronald Reagan
"Mission accomplished" - George Bush ?
He knew so much that was not so either
why do we have the right to fight all over the world, when we dont even have the basic right to self-defense here in america, if you think we do..just try it (deadly force that is) better have a good lawyer and deep pockets.
and any group of people that attack innocent un-armed civillians only have one right...the right to be annilihated (?)okay.. wiped out.
Don't be shy and don't be smug, just answer this one: In 20 years, tell me the name of the Democratic president who will be regarded equal to or better than the Republican ones in the last 3 decades? Don't cheatlike liberals are wont to do now and don't go off on a liberal tangent. Just answer the question.
Hey! Then how about this conservative GEM of his!(LMAO)
"Facts are stupid things." - Ronald Reagan
The fact IS that because of his strong leadership the cold war was won by the USA.
If your'e dumb enough to believe that Reagan single handedly won the cold war I don't want to be one of us. ROFLMAO.
Read history Cecil. After the disaster of the Carter years and his liberal appeasement of the Soviets, among others, Reagan rebuilt the military which in turn bankrupted the Soviets who could not compete with the new buildup and star wars tech. concieved by Reagan. The technology that will save our ass now if Korea lobs a missle at us in earnest. Reagan's leadership and balls brought down the Berlin wall and WON the cold war. Its not debateable history. Reagan also reduced the interest rates which were 21% to buy a house and Carter's gas lines were elimated. I could go on and on with Reagans great "leadership" but if you are a Ted Kennedy man, who fought Reagan every inch of way like he still fights main stream America even to this day you are a lost cause anyway; like Ted Kennedy!
Even the die-hard liberals have admitted that it WAS Ronald Reagan who broke the Communists backs with military spendings. You're definitely not "one of us", but so much for the IQ deal as well.
You want comical...keep buying into the right wing mentality that going into Iraq was to protect our freedom. Iraq never infringed on our freedoms, the only ones doing that are our elected officials.
I guess if the Republicans told you to move to Africa and drink cyanide Kool-Aid, you would be the first in line.
It is ok for the USA, Russia, China, France, Britain, Pakistan, and Isreal to have nukes, just not Iran and Korea. Meanwhile we are selling our F-16's to Pakistan, selling our F-16's to Israel...etc, etc, etc...
Oh...and we don't have to worry about getting blown up going to McDonalds? What about going to work one day in the twin towers? I wonder if that had anything to do with our support of Israel?
Your Comment " The Jews Killed Jesus Christ"
My answer to you: If they had not done so, where would we be today ?
The Oracles of God were given to the Jews, the order of sacrifices for the atonement of sin were given to the jews, so they only did what God compelled them to do as they had practice for milleniums, yo do the ultimate human sacrifice for the sins of the whole world ,including liberals and commis such as yourself.
I don't think you will ever understand that.
they would kill a lot of of Jews and half their Palestinian brothers in the process, since the country is so small and has a long West Bank border. Then the Iranian meatheads would sure look stupid. Oh My Allah what have we done, we've killed thousands of Muslims. Plus they would look up at many Israeli missles coming towards them within minutes. Then, there would be not much left of their nucleur program or anything else over there. Anyway, I appreciated all the consevative comments...
Just where in my post did I ever say "When you say that as a result of this war, the middle east will be better off, it's quite obvious to me that you do not really have a grasp on how Islam extremism works."?
If you want to debate fine but speak for yourself as I am quite capable of speaking for myself. I did not say the middle east would be better off I said it wuld serve us better in the future, esp with Iran. And I assure you, I have been in the area and I am pretty well versed on Islam.
As far as being lied to on a grand scale... take a look at the liberals in this country they are the ones who resort to lying and conjuring up false realities.
F-16s that are being sold are 30 years old aniques and you compare that with letting Iran have nukes? Stick to taxidermy.
JBest - you also made a comment about what President Bush' advisors were telling him LMAO. Everyone at the time, including the liberals were saying what a threat Iraq posed. the truth is no records were shown what happened to the WMDs, the difference between libearls and conservatives are that conservatives were not going to trust a man like Saddam where you liberals buy anything they say.
What I find completely amazing is that liberals will not even mention the fact that ever since 9-11, President Bush has kept America safe and we have not had a terrosist attack despite numerous plans and then you LIBERALS WHINE THAT HE ABUSES TERRORIST RIGHTS TO PROTECTING CELL PHONE CALLS.
Get over yourself liberals, despite what you think you do not have all the answers and we conservatives completely and totally understand that fact.
Read the following quotes and then take your time thinking of another way to sway the coversation to talk about those pesky liberals.
Quote: Dick Cheney
"We will, in fact, be greeted as liberators. . . . I think it will go relatively quickly, . . . (in) weeks rather than months. [Source: Meet the Press, reprinted in Boston Globe]"
Quote: George Bush
"The thing about the Vietnam War that troubles me, as I look back, was it was a political war. We had politicians making military decisions. And it's lessons that any president must learn, and that is to the set the goal and the objective and allow the military to come up with the plans to achieve that objective. And those are essential lessons to be learned from the Vietnam War. [Source: Meet the Press transcript]"
Quote: Donald Rumsfeld
"It is unknowable how long that conflict will last. It could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months. [Source: USA Today]"
"What is, I think, reasonably certain is the idea that it would take several hundred thousand U.S. forces I think is far from the mark.) [Source: DOD Web site]"
Here's a few more from your fearless leader, which I might add, the MINORITY of people in this country approve of.
"I think — tide turning — see, as I remember — I was raised in the desert, but tides kind of — it's easy to see a tide turn — did I say those words?" —George W. Bush, asked if the tide was turning in Iraq, Washington, D.C., June 14, 2006
"Trying to stop suiciders — which we're doing a pretty good job of on occasion — is difficult to do. And what the Iraqis are going to have to eventually do is convince those who are conducting suiciders who are not inspired by Al Qaeda, for example, to realize there's a peaceful tomorrow." —George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., May 24, 2006
"The point now is how do we work together to achieve important goals. And one such goal is a democracy in Germany." —George W. Bush, D.C., May 5, 2006
"I like my buddies from west Texas. I liked them when I was young, I liked them then I was middle-age, I liked them before I was president, and I like them during president, and I like them after president." —George W. Bush, Nashville, Tenn., Feb. 1, 2006
"Wow! Brazil is big." —George W. Bush, after being shown a map of Brazil by Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Brasilia, Brazil, Nov. 6, 2005
"I was going to say he's a piece of work, but that might not translate too well. Is that all right, if I call you a 'piece of work'?" —George W. Bush to Jean-Claude Juncker, prime minister of Luxembourg, Washington, D.C., June 20, 2005
"See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda." —George W. Bush, Greece, N.Y., May 24, 2005
These are just a few of the hundreds and hundreds of quotes like this from the President of the USA.
It's not very difficult for most people to see that this man is in the wrong position, but others will just never get it..so be it.
Do you really want to go to stupid comments because your democraps made some real whoppers just before the war, during the war and after the war. Shall we discuss your liberal dems that talk about burning flags, men marrying men and protecting the rights of terrorists? I do not need to sway anything and you have absolutely no chance in swaying me. Get over it, I don't like liberals and I can't stand the majority of your left wing democraps.
Deal with it
HOW TO DEBATE A LIBERAL: A GUIDE FOR TODAY'S REPUBLICANS
WHEN LIBERALS SAY:
"George W. Bush inherited a record budget surplus from Bill Clinton, and he turned it into a record deficit."
"Your buddy Saddam would like us to believe that, wouldn't he?"
WHEN LIBERALS SAY:
"Bush got re-elected with the lowest margin of victory of any sitting president since Woodrow Wilson in 1916."
"Ooo! Look at Mr. Intellectual. He has facts and figures. I'm so-o-o
WHEN LIBERALS SAY:
"There was a 60% voter turnout in 2004, of which Bush got 51%. That means only 30% of the eligible voters cast a ballot for Bush in 2004. That's hardly a mandate."
WHEN LIBERALS SAY:
"The entire world hates Bush and wanted him out of office."
"Well, if you believe what they say in the liberal media..."
WHEN LIBERALS SAY:
"The lion's share of Bush's tax cuts go to the richest 1% of Americans."
"And you gave Bin Laden a [expletive deleted] last night, didn't you, faggot?"
WHEN LIBERALS SAY:
"1,100 of our soldiers have died in Iraq, thousands more have been maimed or wounded, and tens of thousands of Iraqis have been killed; and for what? There are no WMDs in Iraq!"
"Who told you that? Dan Rather?"
WHEN LIBERALS SAY:
"For months, the intelligence community warned Bush that a terrorist
attack would occur on American soil. Hell, the Presidential Daily
Briefing of August 6, 2001, was called, 'Bin Laden Determined To Strike in the United States'! But Bush was asleep at the wheel, and 3,000 people died because of his incompetence."
"Why do you hate America so much?"
Sure sounds like the same way YOU stick to the issues!(LMAO)
I'll say it again..he's the President of the USA, and the majority of people in this country can see he doesn't belong there simply as a result of what he has said, but more importantly through his actions.
P.S. Enjoying your $3.00 plus gas yet?
I'm sure since it went up while Bush was in office, you will claim the rise of oil prices as another of many success stories?
Since you seem to be gas ignorant let me clue you in. Gas prices are a direct result of the new demands caused by india and china. But hey, you believe what you want OK
Jim - you're a slug I.e. no backbone
"Jim - you're a slug I.e. no backbone" Another content rich reply by daveyBOY. Now about that anger management counseling that you need SOooooooooo bad? How about we refer you to Dr. Phil for a TV session for all of us to watch(LOL)!
You have no backbone I am not angry just calling it as I see it. You come on here and slander me and Geo and call names all the while hiding behind your keyboard. To me that is a coward.
Deal with it
