    It exists because the world demanded Israel allow it to exists. It continues to exist for the same reason. In addition, by allowing it to exist, maybe they will kill each other off. As for the killing of children, that is a topic full of emotion ripe for exploitation on both sides. If the terrorists did not surround themselves with innocents...

    Destruction of buildings? Why keep a building if all that happens is that it is continuously occupied by snipers. You speak of missile attacks launched by Israel - those attacks are far out numbered by outgoing missiles. This is a war fueled by hatred.

    Backing Iran? Not really, more that they are afraid of Iran.

    Israel is not the "innocent" country they portray... or some make them out. Some things they do are downright evil. Do some reading....

    Palestinians... I have no idea were they are happier at... but with a certain country providing daily air attacks into gaza, having snipers kill children while the kids are in school (oopppsss accident, sorry), and having tanks destroy buildings, guess I'd not want to live in gaza.

    If I were running Israel, gaza strip would not exist...

    Israel needs to "grow a pair" as a country. Sooner or later their neighbors will tire of Israel launching attacks against them... sooner or later, one of Israels "missions" will be a major failure... sooner or later someone will launch a retaliatory attack against Israel and it won't be nice.

    The US won't do anything as long as so many countries back Iran.... it will amount to nothing but a proxy war... lol... sorry, but no chance of a ww on this one... not over Israel anyway.

    Okay... right...

    Who is "they?"

    Okay... sure... unfortunately if Israel is going to take the high road on this one, they need to be mindful of the children, woman and innocent men... they are not.

    This is a war fueled by hatred.
    War fueled by greed. Then again, Israels gets to develop some cool "war toys" and sell those toys to the rest of the world. Oh, but Israel is "innocent." Israel does not sell slingshots.

    And I wonder if Israel is still selling arms to Iran.

    Backing Iran? Not really, more that they are afraid of Iran.
    Why is russia afraid of Iran? And china sits in the background playing both sides of the fence... I don't think china cares either way, except to keep relations with both since both purchase products from china.

    Theog, when you speak of Israel, are you also speaking of Hamas? Do they need to live up to the standards you have set for Israel?

    Is this what you are speaking of concerning arms sales?

    Iran = terrorists - extremists - Russia has its own problems to deal with in that respect.

    Obama and the Libertarian, bob barr, want to speak with Iran.

    Of course, if you don't want this approach, then so be it. Is it a wrong approach? In the past it has not been a wrong approach.... depends on the circumstances and how it is setup.

    Obviously, something needs to change... we have went years going back and forth with Iran. Europe wants to do this and that, but when the SHTF who sends in troops to clean up the mess?

    The greater the level of angst, the more awe will be ascribed to the one who brokers a treaty.

    And no meaningful treaty with the leadership of Iran will happen. An economic blockade capable of bringing their economy to a crawl will do something.

    We speak with Iran. We speak with North Korea. We speak with Syria. Where are we with the speaking? Where has the speaking gotten us with China? Look where speaking got us 70 years ago.
