Re: Israel

This time around the Sunni Arabs are afraid of Iran. So it is in their interests for the Palestinians to bury the hatchet. They should reduce their aid to the Palestinians. Oh, what a golden opportunity for Iran to move in with increased aid of its own to buy the allegiance of the palestinians. Ver...

Re: splitting hairs?

1. Bermuda has historically been considered a part of the British West Indies Considered by who? Bermuda is not even located on the American continental shelf but like Iceland and the Azores is perched atop the mid-Atlantic ridge. A little geography lesson for you perhaps? :D "Considered by who?" W...

Re: splitting hairs?

Isn't Bermuda located in mid-Atlantic? Well then, it cannot be defined as a West Indies Island country now can it? You're confusing the West Indies for the Caribbean. They're not defined the same. In fact even the Bahamas are not in the Caribbean. You mean to suggest that none of the Antilles chain...

Re: Neverfail's North American ruminations.

And for all that, some parts of the West Indies are actually upper income. Bermuda and the Caymans are wealthier than, say, Australia. On paper? Nope. Bermuda is like if you put Beverly Hills on a rock in the middle of the ocean. Bermudians are so well off that they have to import people from elsew...

Re: US Foreign Policy

The UN represents the world as it is, and is the only place where people can talk before they start shooting. It's either the UN or nothing, and nothing will only make wars more likely and more frequent. That's false. There is also the option of multilateral talks, which historically have proven oc...
