Mideast Politics

Israel and the Palestinians are now about to go from bombings and rocket fire to an all out ground war. It's hard to tell who is wrong in this situation. An all out war may be the only way to end the violence in the long run by removing Hamas . The real danger is if the conflict spreads to other countries. The cost as always is the civilians getting caught in the cross fire. If Hamas keeps using civilians as human shields the casualties of civilians will only escalate. The question is what should the U.S. do about it. We have been trying to broker peace deals for years to no real resolution. Unless it spreads to other countries we should stay out of it . What do you think and who do you blame for the current mess?


  1. When B.O. takes office he'll walk on the water all the way over there and settel everything!

  2. Cute comment, Blitz 541! I think Obama is in for an education.

    I have not followed the Middle East as well as I should, but if Hamas is a terroist group.....oh well, they need to stop or be stopped. As a friend of Israel, the US may have to go in. As far as who to blame...that goes to far back in history.

  3. It's easy to tell who is at fault.

    Hint: It's the group that let a cease fire expire and then decided to lob some rockets into Israel.

    If Hamas put down their weapons, there would be no war. If Israel put down their weapons, there would be NO Israel.
