Evening Krypt...I take it you don't have much regard for the
Green Party then? lol It's a dead loss though when the taxpayer
has to pick up the bill for other people's life choices I agree.
Glad peace is restored anyway.
Was watching Gareth Bale's welcome at Madrad earlier, felt quite
proud don't know why, it shown some of his past goals and no doubt how brilliant a player he is, something that a Welsh boy is the
most expensive football player in the world. Huge loss for your team but I hope he does well at Madrid anyway.
Can you believe how unlucky Rooney has been lately?!
the problem with groups and parties that are highly focussed on certain issues, is they they lose sight of the other issues the are affected, they have tunnel vision rather than being able to see the big picture.

Today would have been BILL SHANKLY'S 100th Birthday.
He was a former manager of Liverpool Football Club and there is a statue of him outside the ground at
Anfield with the words 'he made people happy'.
Here are some of his quotes..
----------
"For a player to be good enough to play for Liverpool, he must be prepared
to run through a brick wall for me then come out fighting on the other side."
----------
On one of Liverpools European trips, he was filling in the hotel registration form
where he wrote Football for occupation and Anfield for the address.
"Sir, said the receptionist, you need to fill in where you live.
"Lady", he replied, "in Liverpool there is only one address that matters and that is where I live."
----------
"Of course I didn't take my wife to see Rochdale as an anniversary present.
It was her birthday. Would I have got married in the football season? Anyway,
it was Rochdale reserves."
----------
"Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very
disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more
important than that."
----------
"If a player is not interfering with play or seeking to gain
an advantage, then he should be."
----------
"If Everton were playing at the bottom of the garden, I'd pull the curtains."
----------
To Tommy Smith, who tried to explain that his bandaged knee was injured:
"Take that bandage off. And what do you mean
about YOUR knee? It's Liverpool's knee!"
----------
To the journalist suggesting Liverpool were in difficulties:
"Ay, here we are with problems at the top of the league."
----------
To a translator, when being surrounded by gesticulating Italian journalists:
"Just tell them I completely disagree with
eveything they say"
++++++++++
"Although I am a Scot...I would be proud to all myself a Scouser"
++++++++++
If you are looking down Mr. Shankly, you would have loved last night's match. Liverpool beat Manchester United 1-0.
Deservedly so...and that's from a Man U fan!
he was quite a character eh??? Hillarious.

<quoted text>Your last response should have been with this article, not to tell me to look at a map.
I stand by my original response .. a map does not tell me the history, the politics, the economics, the military strategizing, nore does ti tell me which neighbours are allies and which are enemies. It does not show me tribal conflicts which can span several modern borders and go back over 2000 years. A map solely tells me geographical proximity.
now, this article is useful ... did you note that although Iran is an ally of Syria, the article notes that Iran spoke out against the use of chemical weapons??? The president of Iran tweeted "Iran gives notice to international community to use all its might to prevent use of chemical weapons anywhere in the world, esp. in #Syria"
SO ... a map does not tell me this, does it??
Your article does not give much background on either Jordan or Lebanon's position, yet those are the two you originally mentioned.
dude you dont know who hezbollah and hamas are, I wouldn't know where to start

did you wonder why I didn't include Saudi Arabia in the countries we would have to occupy?

YOu're missing my point .. it is not whether I know who they are ... it's the fact that a MAP does not tell me the relevant information ....

ANd I am not disputing the facts as outlined in the article nor do I even deny that you understand what is going on as well as if not better than me ...

My only point was this ... the next time you want to make a point use a comment that does give the relevant info ...

Couldn't agree more Krypteia ! The US has been in Iraq more than 10 years (conventional wisdom said we'd be out in 6 months .... right!), the USA is still in Afghanistan - also more than 10 years, and I thought N Korea was a bigger international threat, or threat to US security than Syria.
There's lots of places throughout the world to invade for 'humanitarian' reasons. How thin should the US military be spread?
reading one will see that we the UN is still at war with Korea .. a truce was signed not a surrender

also was the same for Iraq after the 1st gulf war ..we the UN was still at war... only a truce was signed

now if you pay attention the present Iraqi government is begging for the US military to come back

we tried to stay out of the world events impossible
we are too big too powerful and one of a few who can

your memory fails you ,,,,,,,,,,
The history of Israel encompasses the history of the modern State of Israel, as well as that of the Jews in the Land of Israel. The area of modern Israel is small, about the size of Wales or half the size of Costa Rica, and is located roughly on the site of the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah

who created Israel and the middle east counties
England /France ... it was their territory

'Morning Franko....yes, I expect this does apply to some...
but then..each to their own!

I learnt something about Badgers the other day (for what it's worth) lol and that is, being so short sighted, if they come across you in the dark they ill clamp their jaws on your leg,
and will not let go until they hear the crunch of broken bones.
So poachers or anybody clued up out and about in the dark, push
Weetabix down their socks or gum boots. Interesting eh?!
That aside, there are so few have TB that this cull was not necessary imo. Out of thousands culled only a few will be tested.
