I know 2 things Alpha1. I know what i've read from a variety of sources which all contradicts your statements and I know you weren't there.
I wasn't? Gee, I could have sworn I was!!
Arrogance on your part. You don't know from your own rear end what the intel was; what was going on. For you to say you know and I don't, well, that's pretty astounding. I know I don't know, but more power to you since you are obviously superior to the rest of us.
But that does NOT justify ignoring the statement completely, it merely means they should GO INTO THE PEACE PROCESS carefully and with scepticism.
Who the hell said I was ignoring it-I said I was SKEPTICAL, ADG. That implies caution.
Good evade. Answer the question.
I did answer it-it's never going to happen. What the hell is your problem with that?
No, because it wouldn't suit your purpose to admit what you know, you would NOT sacrifice your 3 year old for anyone.
On difference, ADG-I wouldn't put my 3 year old in a position to be sacrificed or killed-this low-lifes did do that to these kids.
You suspect? You don't know.
No, dearie, I don't know-and neither do you! One difference between you and me, girl, is that I'm not afraid to say I DON'T KNOW. You are. If you are saying you DO know, you're a fool.
So what, you say. So what, that they have said their goal is the destruction if Israel. You act as if that has no meaning; no relavance. It is VERY relevant, ADG. If you were against a group in Australia who proclaimed every day "we wish to destroy you", you'd think it pretty relevant. How naive of you.
The whitehouse was right to condemn the actions, they are NOT in any way similar to what the US is doing in Afghanistan or the UN are doing anywhere else.
Are you now in support of the U.S./Allied actions in Afghanistan, ADG?
first ever offer? I thought they'd done this before (ad nauseum?).
From Hamas? As you like to say to me-go show me proof of them ever offering a cease-fire.
I don't have to. I've seen what Israels response is when offered the olive branch.
You obviously don't, dear. They accepted the offers of peace from Anwar Sadat and King Hussein. Try seeing things as they are for once.
I only wish you actually believed it, because it's what many of us are trying to argue here and it's what you vehemently disagree with.
Fine, ADG, call me a liar to your heart's content. I have said this over and over and over and over and over. You ignore it because you wish to-it makes your own extreme positions more palatable to your mind.
Agian-BOTH SIDES NEED TO CHANGE HOW THEY DEAL WITH EACH OTHER. ISRAEL NEEDS TO STOP BUILDING SETTLEMENTS; ISRAEL NEEDS TO GIVE BACK SOME LAND IN EXCHANGE FOR SECURITY; THE PALESTINIANS MUST DISAVOW TERROR; THE PALESTINIANS MUST UNRESERVEDLY RECOGNIZE ISRAEL'S RIGHT TO EXIST.
Now, is that clear enough for you ADG, our should I come over the to Oz, let you borrow my hearing aids and scream it in your ears, for Christ Sake?
And golly, stop the presses-Hepkat agreed with ADG. Boy, I'm shocked.
