    Decade after decade of unrelenting terrorism "deserves" a reward?

    The wheels have truly fallen off the cart.
    It seems Obama thinks Palestinian women deserve to be repressed, Palestinians gays and journalists deserve to be killed, people who sell land to Jews deserve to be beheaded, and all the other fun things that come with an Islamic government.

    Israel is an important ally in this region, as well as being the only fully functioning Democracy. Butting Out completely isn't really an option.
    Well, I might call it roughly 75% functioning Democracy. Which, don't get me wrong, is a good sight more than anything else around there.

    You've really got that one tenth of one percent working for you today, Bubba. It gives you so much cred I find myself envious!

    Well, you'll notice he didn't answer whereabouts he lived. My bet is he doesn't own land in traditional Cherokee territory, and would be forced to give up his property, but doesn't want to admit it.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    Its kinda crazy how that works out...right? Back, and forth. Back, and forth. Conquerors tend to occupy the lands they currently possess. Sorta like what we do today. Sorta like what the Spaniards did in mejico, and the Mayans and Aztecs and Incans and Brits, and Romans, and Africans, and...well...everyone.

    WHy do you think Israel returning back to the borders established in the 40s would matter to the Palestinians? Do you think they would be satisfied with that? Do you think there would be peace? Hell...if anything...that would just trigger GREATER opportunities for war. And I'm not even saying I blame the Palestinians.

    This wont end until one side has 'won' and the other side has truly 'lost' and is completely vanquished. I wish that werent the case but it is.

    To the bolded, we can hope that you're wrong.
