Bill Maher Takes Aim at Minnesota Congressman

Truth is not funny, nor is it sad. It is. What makes Bill Maher funny is his perversion of the truth. It is what comedians do.  (Thursday Sep 18 | post #73)

U.S. officials: Arab states willing to join air fight

Again, you attempt to minimize the effects of Sykes-Picot. There was no country named Israel before this agreement between London and Paris. The causes of the recent upheavals in the Middle East are the same causes that have existed since that agreement was made. London and Paris caused this problem and ran away from it years ago. Since then, Washington has continued to work towards peace and the prevention of genocide in that area.  (Wednesday Sep 17 | post #28)

U.S. officials: Arab states willing to join air fight

The problems we see today are the direct result of the arbitrary country borders imposed in the Middle East by the Sykes-Picot agreement at the end of WW I. Those boundaries were established without regard to any criteria save pure greed by British and French politicians and businessmen. Since then, there have been continuous skirmishes and upright wars amongst the various regimes in that area. The secular authoritarian regimes you mention are only the most recent regimes. Regimes similar to these have existed ever since the dissection of the Ottoman Empire by Sykes-Picot, and they have always been under attack by groups of militants. "You reap what you sow" certainly does describe the situation. But, you incorrectly identify the sower. It was not Washington. It was London and Paris together.  (Wednesday Sep 17 | post #24)

Jewish group chides Biden for using offensive term

I am no defender of Joe the Schmo, Obama's insurance policy. And, I stand with Israel's right to defend itself against all enemies. BUT COME ON! No disrespect was intended and I'll bet nobody felt disrespected until this gang of language shysters stepped in.  (Wednesday Sep 17 | post #2)

Obama vows "relentless" fight against ISIS

Obama vows "relentless" fight against ISIS

You could not be more wrong. ISIS was formed during the Clinton Presidency, before Bush was elected. And, ISIS grew in power and influence during the Obama Presidency. What happened to ISIS during the Bush Presidency? Well, the fact is that the power and influence do ISIS was REDUCED during the Bush Presidency.  (Tuesday Sep 16 | post #70)

Obama to boost U.S. involvement in fight against Ebola

That's SEVEN TIMES as many as he is willing to commit to contain ISIL! And, Ebola hasn't killed as many Americans as ISIL (or Obama!) Obama's priorities are confused.  (Tuesday Sep 16 | post #18)

Bill Maher Takes Aim at Minnesota Congressman

Hooey! Maher is first and foremost a comedian, and not a very good one at that. He has absolutely no integrity, journalistic or otherwise. His sole objective is entertainment, a point you correctly make. But even in this venture he exists on the margins. You yourself make this point also, although I doubt you realize it. Maher has less appeal than the Kardashians, and about as much integrity.  (Tuesday Sep 16 | post #38)

U.S. officials: Arab states willing to join air fight

WRONG AGAIN! the fact is that ISIL was formed during the Clinton Presidency. The fact is that the influence and strength of ISILwas reduced during the Bush Presidency. The fact is that ISIL's strength grew during the Obama Presidency.  (Monday Sep 15 | post #7)

U.S. officials: Arab states willing to join air fight

WRONG! ISIL was formed during the Clinton presidency, years after Bush I left office. During the Bush II presidency, ISIL's influence waned. ISIL's strength grew during Obama's presidency.  (Monday Sep 15 | post #5)
