    Ask Native Americans how "land for peace" assurances by the US government worked for them?

    Ask the few remaining Jews survivals of the holocaust how "land for peace" worked out for their murdered relatives?

    Giving up "land for peace" is always a sucker's play, nothing else.

    I guess you can see why Iran may want them then. Lol, nuclear weapons have no defensive value whatsoever.

    What do you mean mine, I'm a critic of both regime change in Libya as well as the predator drone program. How about you?

    You singularly called GOP leaders "warmongers."

    Libya was a mistake and I posted opposition to it at the time. Drone strikes are acts of war UNLESS the targeted country government permits it.

    Can absolutely see what Iran wants them. Do you dispute that Iran wants nuclear weapons?

    And they are "warmongers".
    In case you've so quickly forgotten last decade.

    Cotton is clearly on record calling for military action versus negotiations.
    Another unforced error that would be welcomed by me if it wasn't so damned dangerous .

    Being in a "prison camp" means prohibited from leaving. Do Jews prohibit Palestinians from leaving? Palestine's area is not surrounded by Israel. And the concept of a 7400 square mile prison is just declaring a slogan, not a reality.
