Re: Islam and the US left.

What are human rights if not being allowed the pursuit of happiness? And when in history/mythology was the pursuit of happiness exemplified? Why, in the Elysian Fields, of course, where Zeus presided over the cavorting favored.

Re: Saudi Arabia's Achilles heel - oil.

What's all this about the US attacking Iranian interests? If the Saudis feel affronted by the Iranians, then why don't they reply with their own resources? Over 100 F-15 possessed by the Saudis should stand idle, while the US stupidly engages with Iran? Get the hell out of the ME.

Re: Israel

Israel has returned nearly all the land it took by force already. Like where and when? The peace treaty between Egypt and Israel was signed 16 months after Egyptian president Anwar Sadat's visit to Israel in 1977 after intense negotiation. The main features of the treaty were mutual recognition, ce...

Re: Israel

We should hope that after the forthcoming elections Israel extends its national boundaries to include the Jordan Valley. That wouldn't end the savage behavior of Arabs both within and outside the boundaries, but it would enhance security and the rule of law.

Re: Saudi Arabia's Achilles heel - oil.

Let's even the playing field. All Muslim entities in West Asia/North Africa should be furnished with quantities of suitably-armed drones. And then kick back and observe the carnage.

Re: Don't tell any of this to Donald Trump!

Is there any evidence that this is new though? My impression has always been that the majority of Europeans only wanted the benefit of American protection and aid, and were not interested in giving back. That is what a lot of us have been saying for decades. Including Trump if I am not mistaken. It...

Re: Israel

"Arab nations condemn Netanyahu's Jordan Valley annexation plan" https://bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-49657915 Why, of course they would . . .
