Nathanyahu can't cut nothing with the leader of an armed faction that imposes itself by internal terror to the Palestinian Population..
They have to go to elections. Get their shit together (as we did or didn't recently ... depending who you ask) and only then we dance..
I hope they are reading us at the State Department and the White House.

Are you serious? The Arab league was sending weapons to Syrian rebels even before it was considered a "civil war", while Palestinians have received nothing but sh*tty peace initiatives and empty words.

I guess it's no surprise I've always found the Arab League to be a limp-dicked organization. What purpose do they serve? I understand why they don't give a shit about Palestine but how can they not do anything about what's happening in Syria? Upwards of 100,000 dead and neighboring countries swollen with refugees in truly catastrophic numbers. Even if they are too weak to stop the violence the very least they can do is put up a concerted effort to provide for the refugees.

Sorry bro, but Arabs suck.

There's really nothing anyone could do now because every possible outcome is going to be negative. Either the regime survives and everything that was lost would be for nothing, or the Salafists win and Syria becomes another Afghanistan with a twist of Saudi Wahabism who's main concern is destroying everything they consider un-Islamic.
And right now there is even talk of other groups linked directly to Iraq's AlQaeda (we have the US to thank for that) who have declared allegiance to Zawahri and some other dude called Al-Baghdadi, who happens to be the leader of Iraq's AlQaeda. Those guys don't take orders from anyone, not even the FSA.

The revolution is no longer pure; a lot of the people who are fighting in Syria right now are not even Syrian. They are Saudi, Tunisian,Iraqis, Egyptian,Lebanese, Moroccan and even Turks. It's just mercenaries fighting mercenaries right now, and it's up to you to decide which mercenaries are better.

As much as I supported the revolution in the beginning, now I really hope Assad wins. Any other outcome will most likely result in more conflicts.

As I said previously, for purely selfish reasons, Israel is and was better off with Assad in control. These vermin that is kidnapping UN Peacekeepers and disrespecting borders and previous agreements are the worst kind of neighbors. You have smelled the coffee Ahmad. Nice.

When was the revolution "pure"? It may have started with disgruntled citizens wherever it touched down but it didn't take long for Islamists to co-opt the process. Freedom from tyrants became submission to another form of tyranny by way of religion. What's happening in Syria right now is in-your-face opportunism by these pseudo-religious zealots.

It's odd to me that despite occuring in a shame-based culture, there is no sense of shame about this tragedy in the Arab world. The Arab press is reporting on this crisis as though it were just another day in paradise.

We should never have ousted Saddam.

Nothing personal. Learned a long time ago to never take medicine for another person's fever. Did you know that men in their forties are taking Viagra? Why? Do you care? And, Repugnant Beagle, eating ice cream, smelling flowers, etc., is meant to deter a mid-life crisis. Take two aspirin and call me in the morning.

“The report didn't say when the men were arrested or tried.”

Of course not. Just swing a couple of non-important citizens from a cherry picker, or not. Maybe, just print it as so. As reliable as their space monkey. LMFAO

Yup. Sadam kept this mfcukers in line. But, Obami seems to have learned something about that. I'm betting that he wants Assad and the Russians to prevail. I do. uh, Ahmad, too. LOL

>The trade volume between the two countries has already gone up to billion U.S. dollars, Netanyahu pointed out during an online exclusive interview with Xinhuanet.

"But I believe that it will double and double again very quickly because of the potential of our cooperation," he added.
"I believe that each one of us has special advantages that we can merge them together. The benefit will exceed our expectations."
He told Xinhuanet he is pleased to see the cooperation among the companies, technologies and scientists from Israel and China.
"I think that the possibility of creating unimaginable products and services continuously is the future," he noted.
Economic success in the 21st century, which is a knowledge-based century, will depend on sustainable growth, he went on.
There's the only way to achieve increasable productivity and higher income, and bring a great leap forward for the world.
On cooperation in technology, Netanyahu said, "Israel has a lot of technologies and we'd like to share them with our Chinese friends."
In the period of his visit, he would discuss a number of specific projects in various fields, including energy, environment, food, water, healthcare and education, he revealed.
One of them is water reclamation.
"Israel is No. 1 in water reclamation in the world," he said, adding that it would take the chance to introduce related knowhow, such as preventing loss of water, purification of water and desalinization of water, to China.<

Group hugs!

So, I was mulling over that article about Iranian neck stretching when it occurred to me that they are running up to an election. Ahmadinejad&#8206; is term-limited and has gotten in trouble lately for proselytizing an heir apparent. You know, nothing gets the Persian blood boiling like a strategic mention of the Great Satan and our little buddies.
