But if we didn't give them that money they wouldn't love and respect us like they do. We haven't yet heard what the Palestinian cease fire cost us, guaranteed it's a couple hundred million.

Stuff like that will always be.

Just THESE days, there's not much other moral and ethical option other than to ask the uberwealthy to start contributing a little more -again.

BUT, that should also go with CAPPING and CURBING out of control and often highly ABUSED UNearned social entitlements.

Let me guess, you're one of the dumb f--ks making $8.00 and hour and not a CEO. Should have stayed in school like your mama told you to and studied a little harder and you wouldn't be sweeping the floor. The answer is not to "steal" from the rich. That's what communists and people like Obama do. The answer is to get off your dead ass and work harder. Quit asking other people to help pay your way dumbass.

At the time of Israel's "Six Day War" with Egypt, The USS Liberty was in International waters North of The Sinai Peninsula, about 29.3 miles Northwest from the Egyptian City of Arish. Spying!

"Though it was concluded it was an accident -**Others, including survivors of the attack, have rejected these conclusions and maintain that the attack was deliberate."

**I agree. And with good reason. Israel didn't want The US spying on their War Time Communications.
America should have stayed out of The War Zone!
Therefore, I don't fault Israel for firing on The USS Liberty under these conditions.

A Technical Research Ship. What exactly was being researched?

Technical Research Ship:
USS Liberty (AGTR-5) Spy Ship; Technical Research Ships were used by the United States Navy during the 1960s to gather Intelligence by monitoring the Electronic Communications of Nations in various parts of The World. At the time these ships were active, The Mission of the ships was covert and discussion of the true mission was prohibited ("classified information").

The Mission of the ships was publicly given as "conducting research into atmospheric and communications phenomena".
However, the true mission was more or less an open secret and the ships were commonly referred to as "Spy Ships".


No apology necessary. But accepted. Thanks for the clarification.
And I'll extend an apology for the "goofy bastard and O'Stupido".

Surviving 'Liberty' crew members would not be silenced. They kept demanding an open inquiry and tried to tell their story of deliberate attack to the media. Israel's government worked behind the scenes to thwart these efforts, going so far as having American pro-Israel groups accuse 'Liberty's' survivors of being 'anti-Semites' and 'Israel-haters.' Major TV networks cancelled interviews with the crew. A book about the 'Liberty' by crewman James Ennes' was dropped from distribution.

This is Jews at their bests . No wonder Germans did what they did

Why did Israel try to sink a naval vessel of its benefactor and ally? Most likely because 'Liberty's' intercepts flatly contradicted Israel's claim, made at the war's beginning on 5 June, that Egypt had attacked Israel, and that Israel's massive air assault on three Arab nations was in retaliation.
