    obviously... and just as obvious I am referring to the Muslim/Arab nations that attacked... not the ones that did not attack. That lead to segragation. Pretty simple stuff.

    Oh really? Well since its so simple then Israel should allow them to return, those countries are not attacking now. It must not be as simple as you would have us believe.

    Was Israel not attacked by Hamas just last year with thousands of rockets and tunnel invasions? Current Events = not your friend.

    Wasn't there a period of time when there were no rocket attacks? You have it wrong, current events are not Israel's friend, and their treatment of the Palestinians is not getting them any friends.

    Israel was attacked first. Israel was repeatedly attacked... but go ahead and defend terrorists. Illuminates your character...

I'm not the only one that disagrees on this, there's plenty that do not consider Russia in breach of the BM.
    Would you care to link to the Ukrainians who think that the treaty does not apply in this case.

    Of course the aggressor that has breached the agreement would say they are justified. Of course the weak and gutless Obama would say that the treaty does not apply. If it meant he had to do something brave, he would run away faster than Hussein Bolt.

    The Ukraine had defined borders and they entered into an agreement to maintain those borders with the USA. The USA reneged on that agreement to, once again, abandon one of its allies and another of its commitments.

    It is common in the world today that our enemies do not fear us and our allies do not trust us.

    As a country under the feckless leadership of the weak kneed Obama and erratic policies, we have earned both positions.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Oh so Israel won't let those people go back because they were attacked first? Amazing!
