    Well besides already knowing this, I guess I need to be more misanthropic?

    Well, France has been a laughing stock ever since their embarrassing defeat in World War II. For which they really do deserve all the jokes.

    But for most of its history France has kicked a lot of ass. And the generation of defeatist losers from the WWII era are mostly dead, or really old now, so maybe France is getting its couilles back.

    No. the reason France is leading the attack in Mali is because France is its former colonizer. They've made the same initiatives with other countries they have a stronger history with i.e Libya and Syria. But Heaven forbid they do anything for the Palestinians, because that would be anti-Semetic. :whatever:

    I watched on CNN how one mayor in Mali wanted the American troops to do something because they were the ones who trained those Tauregs in the first place. He thinks they should finish what they started by fighting those same people. But I don't put much stock in America's Africom right now because its effects are pretty obvious.

    Speaking of Egypt, are we sending them jets? If so, why? I thought that deal was struck with the old government, not their current one.

    Ok....sooooooooooooo this is who we sent fighter jets to...am I missing something somewhere? If he says..."he will play nice and respect people" then all is well. What country am I living in? Is this an alternate universe that I stumbled into?

    You would think he would fire his aide if he was in a Western country, but in the ME, he might get a promotion.

    Israel gave birth control to Ethiopian Jews without their consent

    ALISTAIR DAWBER
    JERUSALEM SUNDAY 27 JANUARY 2013

    Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu...warned that illegal immigrants from Africa “threaten our existence as a Jewish and democratic state”

    One of the Ethiopian women who was interviewed is quoted as saying: “They [medical staff] told us they are inoculations. We took it every three months. We said we didn’t want to.” It is alleged that some of the women were forced or coerced to take the drug while in transit camps in Ethiopia.

    Read more about it:

    Under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide

    under Article II d, what Israel (if proven) has done is in fact genocide.

    They stepped in **** here, but I doubt anything will come of it. The world doesnt care about some Ethopians. I dont think Im alone in feeling that Israel is getting too big for their breeches and one day they are going to have to pay for this type of ****. Administrations wont always pity them and let them get away with this stuff because they suffered a holocaust.

    Irony right there. Does he not realize how much he sounds like Hitler?

    Can't really blame the Israelis there. Who do you think they're going to use those weapons against?

    I'm not saying that Netanyahu is right in what he is saying....but you have to realize that Israel is a "Nation-State" which is far different from the US....they see themselves very differently....and they were created TO BE a "Nation-State". Germany was not created specifically for that, but that is what Hitler wanted to "change".

    Nation-State isnt an excuse for being an ass. They are a little country made from land requisitioned from another country of people. In their situation they really shouldnt be testing everyone's patience and tolerance for their *****ebaggery. We might just remember that the world doesnt revolve around the Jews then they will be up **** creek. Nation state or not right now in the present we should hammer their ass for what they were doing to the Ethiopians.

    Just to be clear, I know you arent condoning what Yahu said and did. I doubt anyone here would.

    UN: Israeli settlements 'violate Palestinian rights'
    BBC News

    The magnitude of violations relating to Israel's policies of dispossessions, evictions, demolitions and displacements from land shows the widespread nature of these breaches of human rights," Unity Dow, member of the fact-finding mission from Botswana, said in a statement.

    "The motivation behind violence and intimidation against the Palestinians and their properties is to drive the local populations away from their lands, allowing the settlements to expand."
