Look man... I always take the position that EVERY story has two sides, and that the truth is most often in the middle. I've said quite often here.<br><br>Like when are you going to realize?<br><br>That you have no idea where I'm coming from — other than where you'd like me to be coming from so you'll have something else to whine about.<br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Resources? You think this is about resources?! This is just the latest installment in a conflict that that goes back thousands of years. It's about religion. It's about ideology. It's about philosophy. It's about birthrights for chrissake! And it's about land — as in Homeland. As wonderful as it would be, you don't just call "TIME!" and bring a thousands-year-old debate to a dead stop. Doesn't matter what you say (or what you want). Israel ain't listening. Hezbollah ain't listening. Iran ain't listening...<br><br>We're talking about a part of the world where every nation, state, and man is looking out for their own interests. Period. Because if you let your guard down for a nano second, you are toast! It's been that way since before biblical times. And it'll be that way for a very very long time. No one's suggesting you resign yourself to that fact. But you would do well to accept it and understand it. At the very least, it'll help you manage your own expectations.<p><hr></blockquote><p><br>Talk about 'A Stilted PoV': <br><br>One has but to wonder:<br>If you'd be as philosophical about accepting "WHAT IS"<br>...had by some quirk of fate, ...the U.S. decided to back the Palestinians instead.<br><br><br><br><br>

Claiming your opinion is correct because you look at all sides to the story<br>while claiming my opinion is single minded is almost the 'perfect paradox'<br><br>Simple put, you can't offer up an opinion and then take the role of moderator<br>and evaluate your opinion over others. That's a contradiction.<br><br>I have an opinion and so do you and we differ in opinions.<br><br>Which one is correct is up to the reader, not you.<br><br>[color:red]Allez Cuisine!

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>I have an opinion and so do you and we differ in opinions.<br>Which one is correct is up to the reader, not you.<p><hr></blockquote><p>No kidding! ya think? The right or wrongness of an opinion does not automatically prevent one from differing with said opinion. You've failed to see that what I've taken exception to more than the issues you've presented is your inflexible position. Your refusal to factor in the bigger picture (which, btw, is totally your prerogative). I don't claim to be any more right than anyone else. But I do claim the right to say the issue is too big and too complex to be as black and white as you would have it be.<br><br>That Israel has gone squirrel hunting with a bazooka is something I think we both agree on. That there are no mitigating factors at play; That there is no idealogical history; That this mess is more complicated than any of us will ever fully grasp, is something I guess we can't agree on. So be it.<br><br>
