It is disheartening that much of the western media opinion is now against the military. Especially since almost every first hand account coming from the people, those who are not fanatics, is in favor of it.
The fickle nature of Western media has one advantageous result. It virtually guarantees the conflict will go on and on for years, maybe even decades.

As long as Egypt is embroiled in a self-destructive civil war, they won't have the time or inclination to make mischief for Israel.

RELIGIOUS NUTS:

1) I laugh when I come across people who take their respective religion seriously or who fight over trivia like ethno-religious type or who squabble over my religion and yours or who take time off to indulge in weekly or monthly or yearly ritualistic nonsense which are nothing more than dangerous mind control exercises devised by diabolical sorcerers who have established the religion.

2) These religious idiots are filled with scriptural humbug and having not a jot of direct mystical experience are as such clueless about the true nature of the various gross and subtle forces and their inter-play in and around them.

3) These religious fools who're shut tight in the black hole of the ordinary consciousness-energy field have not the least idea about the reality. Ha ha ha.

I know.
I laughed at your "revelation" since it's an ignorant sweeping generalization.
Look here, the reality is this - many fashion designers are either gay or bisexual. But, not all are.
Fashion critics are usually women who could be bisexual.
Again, it's the few flamboyant gays in the haute fashion industry who make ordinary people generalize about the sexual orientation of all of those involved in high fashion.
Never make sweeping generalizations and that too based on hearsay or newspaper gossip.
You've no experience of haute couture nor do you wear any haute attires for known reasons and so your dealing with people (men and women) in the high fashion industry is acquired from hearsay or from tabloid gossip columns which is mostly conjecture, selective representation or sensationalization.
Gays dominate the film industry and then, too, most of these so-called gays are actually bisexuals.
Most people in fashion, too, are bi.
In fact, most people in the world are bisexual.
So you are saying you are bi?

That is true too. But I find the fickleness offensive. Enough that I am willing to send back my liberal ID card to Mother Jones. Even John McCain, permanent war hawk, who is now advocating defunding, has it wrong on this one.

It would be nice if you could count on foreign policy being somewhat consistent. Even if it's only consistent to the ideology of the party in power.

A foreign policy that changes every four to eight years is highly preferable to one that changes every five minutes.

Can you point out a couple of sweeping generalizations that I may have made in the past?

If you look at my choice of language, I was trying to keep the conversation on the high road.

Furthermore, yours was not an innocent statement - you gave a full fashion column. Thats fair game, I'm sorry.

Pretty almost every comment about the Jewish religion, of which you have yet to demonstrate even a basic familiarity with. And most of your comments about Israel. And lets not forget your 911 truthing. Shall we go on?

What nonsense is this!

You don't move with the high-end social types and so you wouldn't know that they talk a lot about haute couture fashion, designer drugs, rave parties, holiday hotspots, top political contacts, uber-chic cafes, fast cars, buying/selling prime real estate and lucrative financial deals. All this talk has nothing to do with sexual orientation.

So, in ignorance, you keep making ignorant generalizations.

I dont think the US administration has altered their policy on this one (though I am not 100% sure)- they tend to be realists which is why we are not bombing syria either. Its congress and the media that is flaking out.

Oh, those good old days when we had Kissinger...

Having to ask a question like that HAS to be an indication of something about the inquisitor....(and probably something not too flattering either)

Ask any averagely intelligent and unbiased person about Judaism and he'll spit or call it overt demon worship given the horrific and barbaric details contained in the tanach.

What's so great about a stupid nation like Israel? Nothing, nothing, at all.

It's a filthy and illegitimately established nation and ranks among the most hated nations in the world even among unbiased non-observant Jews/ex-Jews and most Westerners.

That was not a generalization, that was an inference based upon interpretation of available data. And you claim to be versed in science?

Three posts later and NOW it occurs to you that I was spoofing on you? Thats slow, man.

And by the way, I dont need to know ANYTHING about fashion. I only need to be able to READ what others say about it. Your style rivaled any fashion column I have read. OWN IT, girl. And please, consider a more realistic self-concept. You will feel better, I promise.
