Liberace never finger painted on the living room window with dog caca like Poopie. Don't insult Liberace. And, let's not forget that Liberace's casual sex encounters were in modern roadside running water rest stations. Unlike Poopie who solicits his drunken conquests at wooden outhouses. The dog has to be blind folded during the event. That's no way to treat an animal.

Oh yeah? I'd laugh if that was the dog's name (that, or Rock Hudson)

When the owner is a nutjob who has a choke chain and steel toed boots, they don't usually name them. They just boot them outside while he shares his girlfriend with his drinking buddies.

I'm not defending anyone here but it seems that lately you've relaxed the criterion for nutjobs. Surely he couldn't help it if he bought a really expensive closeted gay dog. The collar is probably not a choker...you just can't get many rhinestones on them.

So, now you have a fondness for Poopie from down under? Scuse me. My mood ring just turned black. You went from chastising me for encouraging the brainless twit to post to wanting to be his pen pal? Was it the dog talk? Sharing the girlfriend? Menopause?

Go Uzi!!!!

“While these cases are legally separate, they all depend heavily on the testimony of a former Israeli official named Uzi Shaya. The ex-counterterrorism agent has emerged as a key witness in determining how much the Bank of China knew about the financial transfers.”

It would take a Christian witness and a Jewish lawyer to get anywhere with this.

"Sworn to secrecy" and getting "permission" to testify and "dollars involved" stand in the way of getting anywhere with this. Kiss the yellow hand.

You can't sue China. I like the way they went "all in" helping their neighbors the Filipinos. The Chinese sent $100,000. Get that? Over a billion people and they send $0.0001 p/p. Touching.

Well, you have an Israeli Lawyer and a Israeli witness. No Christians. I guess it all comes down to dollars for the victims and greed on those in power to let that Jew boy loose to do his damage. But, there are DOLLARS involved for the future. Fcuk the past. Money trumps over honesty, once again. It's enough to make one puke. Makes you wonder what else is for sale behind those closed doors.

Unwinnable...is that a word? Where do you sue them, Israel? Good luck getting it on a Chinese docket. I'd love to set the precedent of holding promoters of terrorism accountable but who will be named as claimant? Who will be the defendant?

Laundry has a way of getting hung out in public...some day the Chinese will wear this shame.

Giving up to the yellow hand? First, you get the judgement. Second, you get the response. Third you go public with the response. For a country striving to get on the map as a super power, and newly appointed member to the UN Commission on Human Rights, laughable as it is, it's a start. Hey, Germany is paying reparations for the Holocaust victims. In spite of the latest scandal. They ain't whining. Who'd a thought? I'm more concerned with the lack of balls from the Israeli leader having a tough time to make up his mind to let the witness testify, because of the DOLLARS. Kind of re-enforces the stereotype of Jews. It's all about the DOLLARS.

Be gone from here, I say. Go back to those Jew hating threads. We love Israel here. But, I concur with your observation. Are you Jewish? Are you a new friend? Shalom.

So, your schizo other self thinks Israel needs to chase ambulances, huh? If I thought there was a case to be made I'd be all over it. I don't, therefore I'm not.

Know why Germany has paid reparations? Because they owed it! The damages accumulated in WW2 were actual, incontrovertible. To this day they are finding secret stashes of masters artworks stolen by the Nazis from families who may or may not be around to claim them. The punitive damages should so far exceed the actual, a hundred times...a thousand...it should be enough that they should wish for capital punishment instead. Maybe that will dissuade any future Hitler wannabe, knowing his ancestors will be held accountable for his crimes.

Which room are you in? There's green jello on Thursdays. There's "One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest" shown on Fridays and "The Shining" is the Saturday matinee. Cool Whip or Non-Fat Cream with that Jello?

The money trail from the Chinese to those Terrorist groups which funded attacks that killed members of 22 families is "ambulance chasing"? Do you have Chinese stocks in your portfolio?

It's a bug hunt...like declaring war on an "ism". This wouldn't be a criminal case where they seek punishment of the perpetrators, it would be a civil case where they seek financial damages. If tried in the People's court, we might find another entity that considers them heroes of a revolution rather than the cold blooded killers they are. I don't need any of that validation so you go ahead, knock yourself out. I'd prefer a little undercover justice where the actual signer of the check ends up whisked away to Israel to answer to the Mossad for their investment in murder. That way, when China asks them about the whereabouts of their guy they can say "What guy?".
