The largest part of the citizens of Iran pray for the day that their government is overthrown! To hate Israel is one thing, to think that a known and practically confessed terrorist state should be allowed nuclear weapons is CRAZY to the highest power. I do believe you are just attempting to be controversial because of your hate for Israel. But you are entitled to believe whatever you please AND state it, unlike in Iran.
Israel is the terrorist state in that region and they are the aggressors, not Iran. Just look at operation Cast Lead and the recent bombing in Gaza. What act of aggression has Iran ever done to Israel? I don't hate Israel, it is the zionist regime of Netanyahu that is to blame and now a growing majority of Israelis want Netanyahu overthrown. Ahmadinejad is actually very popular in Iran just like Assad is in Syria, despite what our zionist controlled news media will lead you to believe. The bad apples in Israel is not the people, it is their war mongering government and they are doing their best to get America into another war for them.

the words of an Israeli on Netanyahu

http://mjayrosenberg.com/2012/09/12/netanyahu...

Netanyahu, Not Iran, Is An Existential Threat To Israel

One ex-Israeli official put it best. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu seems to be “going berserk.”

He is demanding that the United States set a “red line” that, once crossed, will automatically initiate a US attack on Iran. He doesn’t even bother to pretend that war with Iran is in US interests. He just wants his war trigger. But, and this seems literally to be driving him crazy, he sees the chances for war diminishing every day.

I think his latest tantrum was produced by last week’s New York Times op-ed by its former executive editor, Bill Keller which stated that even if Iran develops nuclear weapons, they would not necessarily pose a significant threat to Israel, let alone to the United States.

Keller merely suggested what Israelis say privately: this whole Iran scare is not about nukes per se, it is about Israel’s fear of losing the ability to do whatever it wants to whenever it wants to. Bomb Gaza. Bomb Lebanon. Bomb relief ships. Bomb whoever, whenever.

It is about regional hegemony. After all, militarily Israel can more than handle Iran and both countries know that. That is why Israelis do not share Netanyahu’s enthusiasm for war.

Not only do they not want war, they rightly fear that an attack on Iran would result in thousands of missiles, being launched against Israeli population centers by Hizbullah and Hamas. Even though Defense Minister Ehud Barak promises that only 500 Israeli civilians would be killed (how did he come up with that number), Israelis do not want their kids to be among that number.

None of this seems to matters to Netanyahu, who acts less an Israeli leader than a US neocon. That is why he is the first Israeli prime minister not even to go through the motions of serious negotiations. He is not interested.

Fortunately, President Obama — like President George W. Bush before him — is standing in the way of an Iran war. Netanyahu’s plan requires the United States to jump in to bail Israel out once it begins a war it cannot finish, but Obama, like Bush, won’t permit it.

So what is Netanyahu to do? He will defeat President Obama (at least in his dreams) and bring in a Mitt Romney under the sway of Sheldon Adelson. He believes Romney would go to war and so he is engineering conflict with the United States to tip the election.

Forget the fact that he can’t do it. The percentage of Jews who vote based on Israel’s perceived desires is 3% at best, and not even that 3% necessarily believes war is in Israel’s interests. Nonetheless, that is what Bibi’s whole game is about.

The irony is that it is unlikely a President Romney would go to war either. With the military opposed, one would have to imagine that Romney would risk American interests (most importantly, young lives) to please a donor and the same neocon claque that led Bush to war with Iraq.

Really? A new Republican president would want to begin his term with another Middle East war? Dream on, Bibi.

The only force in the United States that favors war is the Israel lobby (AIPAC and its satellite organizations), neoconservative pundits and some Christian rightists (although the latter are more enthusiastic about going to war against a woman’s right to choose and gay rights than against Iran). War with Iran could destroy Romney’s presidency and he surely knows it.

The bottom line then is that all Netanyahu is accomplishing with his ugly saber-rattling is threatening the survival of the US-Israel relationship.

Don’t kid yourself. No matter what Obama says publicly, he is furious with Netanyahu. Privately, it is hard to imagine that even Republicans like seeing the United States being treated with such contempt by a tiny country we sustain with $3.5 billion a year in aid (exempt from all cuts, unlike every other program) and UN vetoes that make America look like Israel’s satellite. The only thing that keeps them all quiet is intimidation and campaign contributions. That won’t last forever, particularly as younger American Jews have moved toward indifference to Israel due to the policies it has pursued since an Israeli fanatic killed Yitzhak Rabin.

Israelis need to wake up. IL Kenen, the founder of AIPAC, called the United States Israel’s defense line. It is. And Bibi is jeopardizing it.

Binyamin Netanyahu poses an existential threat to the Jewish state. Those who claim to care about Israel need to speak out. Will we really allow this rightist egomaniac to destroy a 2000 year old dream?

First of all why don't you stick to one name, for instance "Legion." That would fit you well. Have you ever been to Israel or Gaza or the West Bank?

Ok, since you guys are having a violent time here perhaps you can assist in my search for a Finnish soldier who is credited with 21 confirmed knife kills. I've been digging for an hour with no luck. Sure you may think it's good ol boy Simo Häyhä, but no. He was quite the sniper but I recall this dude who took out 21 Russians with his blade. The only reference I found was from Col Rex Applegate, who has a few knife kills, 7 I think,, and mentions this Finn soldier by deed not name. This dude is hiding, but I'm set on finding him.

@AW, thought you would like this article in today's Courier Journal since today is the anniversary of the attack:

Artifacts help pinpoint key Hatfield-McCoy battle
Artifacts recently unearthed during the filming of a new National Geographic Channel show appear to pinpoint the location of a turning point in the yearslong feud between the Hatfield and McCoy clans.

On New Year's Day of 1888 in eastern Kentucky, the Hatfield clan set Randolph McCoy's cabin ablaze and gunned down two members of the rival family.

Excavators have found bullets believed to have been fired by the McCoys in self-defense, along with fragments of windows and ceramic from a cabin.
Kim McBride, co-director of the Kentucky Archaeological Survey, also says the deed to the land was traced back to Randolph McCoy.

The property is owned by Bob Scott, a Hatfield descendant who suspected for years the land was the site of the attack.

Then there are the guys that jump on the hood of your car and start wiping the windows. They are really holding you up for cash (a dollar of two will do, thank goodness.) The subways are most enlightening: You get crammed in them like cattle in a cattle car. And while you're standing up, hanging on to a strap for balance, some pervert squeezes in behind you, and you get the picture. If you're female, you hope that it's a gay man that's behind you. At least he's not interested. Ah, the joys of city living!!
I like big cities for about a day, then zap me back to sanity. I guess it comes from Christmas shopping in downtown Cincinnati as a kid and going in and out of all the big tall stores from the snowy streets. I like the open air farmers markets like the old Findley market in downtown Cincy and nw side of DC. Nothing like the cornucopia of aromas wifting the air,, not so much the fish mkt though, lol.

@AB .. yes interesting. I acquired about 6 boxes of old papers from my Aunt's old attic and have been looking through them from time to time.

I recently found where in 1842, my ancestor had a receipt for 40 cents paid to a black smith for shoeing his horses. I don't know if that was 10 cents a hoof or was for more than one horse.

But one of the most interesting was a paperback booklet of "Lydia Pinkham's, Ailments Pecular to Women" and on the inside cover it said since the booklet contained information of a delicate matter, it should be read in privacy and was not for public viewing. LOL My how times have changed.

I just now looked up Lydia Pinkham on the internet and it said she lived from 1819 to 1893 and suffered from many women's ailments and concocted some remedies in her own kitchen.

You are always coming across the most interesting things. I would love to go through some old attic treasures. Especially old newspapers and documents. I looked old Lydia up and was quite interested in her story. You can still buy the book for $12.98. lol
I liked how they compared her to modern day Dr. Ruth and Ann Landers:

She was the late 1800s version of Dr. Ruth and Ann Landers. She was a pioneer who was praised by women, yet often ridiculed by the male dominated "establishment", whose feathers she often ruffled by her outspoken common-sense approach to women's health and sexual matters.

Lydia is, however, most famous for her herbal formula for women. A product that she began selling in 1875, which has been used by millions of women.

Herbal formulations sold today for PMS and hot flashes owe much of their acceptance to the amazing efforts of Lydia and her company.
The effort Lydia made to provide women with an alternative to the poor medical services available in the late 1800s, lives on in our modern day version of Lydia's vision, LydiaPinkham.org .

Hi AW.:) Your kraut sounds good too, as well as the fried cornbread. Is it "hot water cornbread?" I love that stuff. My boyfriend was in the grocery today and he said at least half the buggies in the store had a head of cabbage in them. lol
