And they're also incredulous that, for years, their own government would reject their calls for a thorough investigation.

    In 1967, at the height of the Arab / Israeli Six Day War, the Israeli Air Force attacked the USS Liberty, a US Navy spy ship that was monitoring the conflict from the safety of international waters in the Mediterranean. Israeli jet fighters twice identified the ship as American before hitting the vessel with rockets, cannon-fire and napalm, before three Israeli torpedo boats moved in to launch a second more devastating attack.

    I appreciate your personal belief in that, but it is subjective and it has no place in the public world of politics and diplomacy. Please keep it out of the debate.

    Besides the fact we got them back on that, Was there any reason to believe that their bombing was intentional, hmm? And your dismissive attitude of that attack would be offensive to the 170 wounded and 35 killed aboard that ship. JFC the contortions you guys get yourselves into protecting Israel.

    Drummers try to annex my stage space! They just take more and more. Give them an inch and they'll want a mile. They are NOT God's chosen people! So it is written! (I just wrote it.) So shall it be done! Get back on your side of the stage or I'm not going to pay my stage rent to you any more!

    ok... good point. I was a drummer in high school but I was the lead singer in my 20's in a rock band and yes... drummers were stage hogs. Let's unite at our anger towards lead guitarists whose egos always outstrip their abilities. No doubt encouraged by... SATAN!?!?

    So, lead singers are God's chosen and bassists are their annoying little wing men.
