A convoy of civilian passenger and cargo vessels registered in NATO
member countries (Greece, Turkey, and the USA) has been attacked by the
naval forces of a non-NATO country in international waters, the vessels
and cargos seized, and surviving crew and passengers imprisoned.
It'll be interesting to see if and how NATO responds.
Contrary to popular belief, Jews and Muslims do not have "different
gods". The Koran is very explicit about this. They don't even have
different names--both "God" and "Allah" are euphemisms for a name that
is forbidden to be spoken aloud.
And their God is the same as our God. They just don't believe in the Trinity.
Jesus is a profit to the Jews and Muslims.

IMNSHO, you will need both parties to the conflict to have a true
intention to come to a solution. I would dearly love to see that happen,
but my lifespan is limited <grin>. I am afraid my teeth won't bother me
any more before that solution is achieved.
The trouble, Part I, is that they don't have the *same* solution in mind.
The trouble, Part II, is that the solutions they do have in mind are mutually
incompatible: the Israelis don't appear to want much more than simply to be
left alone, whereas Hamas has the explicit goal of exterminating Israel.
Again, please describe what compromise you imagine to be possible under these
circumstances. Note that "I get everything I want and you get squat" is not a
compromise. Neither is "We'll leave you alone as soon as all of you are dead".

Well, you've obviously missed the point. If the "law of the Jungle"
prevails, the *point* is if we "won" the war why don't we get the booty.

us being in Iraq in the first place.
No. Because I couldn't get financing on the Gi bill.
