    much as we would want no share of that fight, Israel's stranglehold on our socio-political neck would drag us there.

    Some quick words so they go thru.
    I caught that video on Youtube. Don't watch Aljazeera or go to IRNA. Nor do I read venezuelan newspapers. I do read Haar'etz regularly though.

    As many sanctions as we've hit Israel with, I certainly question the U.S. transparent relationship with them.
    As far as Iran, Didn't Obama , say something to the effect; "Our patience is not limitless"

    See the Bias?
    See the stats on Israeli killed verses the Palestinians killed in their dispute.
    Israel is NO better than Iran.
    And that's coming from past articles read on settlements, number of sanctions ignored by the U.S. to Israel, and now the stats I came across yesterday from credible sources.

    @Bombo's comments on western and especially US MS media not being selective on what they are 'allowed' to report made me wonder at the naivete inherent in our outlook.

    This generation of ours has grown up with certain perceptions designed to instill in us an unwavering loyalty to the interests of regimes (not necessarily the people) in Israel. These perceptions are kept alive both at the social and political level by lobbies and special interest groups including our lawmakers with dual loyalty.
    Fortunately albeit belatedly Americans and peace loving Jews are now beginning to see thru this fog.

      No body looks forward to a chat of any kind with you. You regurgitate everything Philip tells you too.

    It appears to me, that half of you that say you support the re-election of President Obama are lying so as to not being an outcast in your little group. What don't you say what you truly feel under your real name? No wonder the polls look as they do. If you can't do that, then just say nothing.

      Polls aren't taken from the Blog pages of CNN....And the folks that post here are not anonymous since an IP address is always available to authorities should we post evil things. If all the John Smiths,say in Los Angeles, were to post on one blog using their real names think how screwed-up that would be
