    No@Philip. never upset.
    I always look for the info that you share with us and it is always some info, in your posts. I just get a tad uncomfortable when your posts deviate and get bristly with dear friends and good folks like @banasy or @chrissy.
    let us have your take on this Libyan tragedy and the direction events are taking generally.

  5. Libya 101, by Philip

    *The King of Libya...a true Muslim who refused infidel advances.
    *King's Army Colonel Gahdaffi goes AWOL with several troops and learns the art of the coup at a War College near London.
    *Mo. Gahdaffi forces overthrow Libyan government as King is having surgical procedures in Turkey.
    *Gahdaffi rules for 4 decades w/close ties with infidels, for it was infidels who put him in power.
    * A very large % of Libyan citizens have always hated Gahdaffi, and over the decades have moved to be closer to each other. Specific communities and towns filled with true Muslims who would rather die than disobey Allah and become like the infidel.
    *Israeli MOSSAD and Israeli arms dealer train and arm 50,000 men from Chad.
    *NATO bombs muslim communities mentioned above.
    *Citizens returning to their bombed-out homes are labled "rebels" and gunned down by Gahdaffi forces incl. paid mercenaries mentioned above.(Koran: a rebel is one who sides w/infidels
    * "Arab Spring" is in reality Liquidate True Muslims.
    * Sauds still clean

    While we are on the subjects of these other countries firing up ours how about Israel trying to suck us into a war with Iran and the fact that pres hopeful Romney is all for us nuking Iran. How many here want us to be at war AGAIN?

    @ chrissy

    Where you been hiding girl ? I haven't seen you here in a while.

    In response to your comment, I have been saying the same thing. I'm just glad we have a president who refuses to kowtow to Israel. If we had other representation in there, ( and you know what I mean ) we would most likely already be involved. If Israel is so hellbent on attacking Iran, then they need to just go ahead and do it, instead of trying to get us to make the first strike.

      I'm sure Israel would prefer to go it alone, but they need to be sure the US won't throw them under the bus if they do.

      When did the US (or anyone else) ever fight one of Israel's wars for them?

      @ BOMBO

      There is to no question that we will have Israels back. They just need to step back and take a good look, before they unnecessarily do something stupid.

      I do understand the sadness you're feeling right now. Just keep the positive thought. It will pass soon.

    Some would take President Obama's. reticence to meet with Israel's President to be weakness.
    I take it to be prudent, and a wise move to keep us out of Israel's machinations against Iran.

      I agree banasy. There are to many people beating those war drums. I respect the slow let's see approach of our president. And I know the majority of the american people have "got" to behind him on this. After ten years of needless wars, everone ( well almost anyway) is over this crap.

    We need to stop sending financial aid to these countries that hate us yet take our money. Stop sending troops over there for a never ending futile battle and take care of our own damn business! They will always be at war with one another!
