    You said that John Kerry's declaration of aid to war ravaged Gaza equates to warming up to Hamas. I'd say that's garbled.

    Unbelievable, the president is the COMMANDER IN CHIEF, the military doesn't fight him! What are you thinking?

    So you think that the whole Iraq disaster is a result of the Bush mis-administration not doing things exactly the way that the neo-cons wanted them done?

    Or do you have a different excuse for them?

    If so, let's hear it.

    They are the government and its non-leathal humanitarian aid for the damage Israel is doing. And despite the public face, no one that matters believes that Israel's operation is pinpointed as Israel claims. I loved John Kerry's hot mic comment the other day!
