Is it possible one of this country's biggest problem's might just be ourselves. Or should I say our political leaders. We ordinary citizens have so much more common sense. Maybe we would be stupid also if we had piles of someone else's money.

Bill I could not agree more, We the "sheeple" are the biggest problem because we do not speak out and do something instead just rely on "them" to say what we can and cannot do. Nothing comes free it all has a price.

Might as well leave 20mil on the street in a garbage bag for all the good that will do the actual victims in Gaza. Sheesh...(shakes head)

Often the funds do not get spent in a proper manner - not helping those who are desperate for help and infrastructure -
and that has gone on for so many
decades. And that is just RIDICULOUS!!
Maybe this time it won't be a total mess.

Solutions may not exist. When hatred is taught generation after generation.That is the product of your effort. Every facet of the daily lives of young Palestinians is teaching them hate for and of their Jewish neighbors. You cannot be indoctrinated in that way and ever live in peace. That little strip of land should be a paradise. It should be a tourist mecca. The people living their would have jobs and a self sustaining infrastructure. But not with all that hate.

What is a "Palestinian"? Did they come from ancient Palestine?  I don't think so. Or, are they an invented country? Sorry to any Palestinians here, but the truth is the truth.  ed

Ed---Great question...anyone here know who "owned" the land Israel occupies now? I would think the "Palestinians" would/should be citizens or the previous land owners....unless they are "unwanted" for some reason. Just simple questions from a simple poster...no harm intended.

We should find a way to get along. It is like trying to transfer Manhatten to the American Indians. We will eventually start over and who takes ownership will be the occupiers like anywhere. We are where we are and where we find ourselves we must find peaceful coexistance. Every human must participate in any true peace.It is hard, I know similar examples of people that have no scrupples, manners or humility. Each cultural community must come to gripps with how much better life can be when expressing love to his fellow humans. You must find agreement where there is less than common ground.Tit for Tat has got us to this point. Chickens coming home to roost and all like we are seeing from our misconduct as a nation allowing the mega interest steer this planet off a cliff. Little guys getting crushed and the wealthy keep rolling it in. The Pyramid standard has been pervasive throughout our civiliazation since the kings were put in place before the last Epoch. Americans have got to wake up too. Had Rev Wright at least in the context of that infamous speech said wake up America it would have nailed a real truth with a battle cry. We in America have a growing Cancer within and we must fix us within before we can call ourselves capable of helping the world and the world has no faith in us. After all, the method of robbing the masses was designed and supported by law to the point that we have infected the world as the world sees us. This is a problem that can only be fixed by turning off the faucet to the execive money creation magically through hedge funds which ultimately rape our economy for the few. It is a little too late America Pandora's box has opened and you can no more close it than you can put the money/greed mechanism back in. We are in for an uglier realization as the underbelly of our Government becomes known. It is sad, truly sad. We must find some boot straps from somewhere and pull them up!!{{:>(
It is not what you know.
It is what you do with what you know!!

If I remember correctly, when I was younger, Yassar Arafat started the PLO, the original terrorist organization, that I know of. At first, he was hunted. Now they want to own certain land. The American Indians don't go around terrorizing the white man every chance he gets. He waits, quietly, until the slot machines do it. Maybe they should let the Palestinians build a Casino!  Typical gov't response to a problem--throw money at it.  ed

Yeah i guess compensate for crimes of yester year today, but in the case of the middle east, why commit the crimes it's not the 1700's.

If time permitted the answer is obvious and that being a city state status for each city in the region. a loose knit organization since 3 of the 6 major faiths see the area as holy. it will be curious to see how it fairs as sever prophesies I've read include the utter destruction of Israel... though doubt we will learn of it if CNN is not up and running as in that case one region will be blind to another, but frankly i'm sure most of us who live will have bigger issues when they get there come up-ins.
Remember Knowledge is the only thing THEY can't take from you, and Knowledge is Know how, and Know how is Power!!!

The funny thing about all of it, is that NOBODY 'owns' any of it. When they die, they don't lose it, or take it with them. We all only have been alllowed to "use" this planet. It was up to us, mankind, to take care of mother earth. We failed overall.  ed

All too true Ed, we failed her terribly.  :'( :'( :'(

Hello Ed !!

I am sure it was some kind of temporary maintenance. Around 2 hours after being unable to get the information the site returned to its normal operating condition.

Thanks for the help on this.

I am anxious about the Sun as it seems dormant (to our side). I smell something coming in the coming months or weeks and so do many other sources reasonably reliable and unreliable as well. I have to travel some 1000 miles by air next week and I am getting nervous about it, almost on the verge of seriously thinking of cancelling, postponing (worse), I do not know....  air travel imho may get less and less reliable with time.... too much electronics dependance.... since the AF447 accident over the Atlantic and using statistics, I am definitely favouring Boeing aircraft (or other makes like the Brazilian Embraer) to Airbus. All Boeings have a final pilot resource to control the aircraft in case of total electrical failure, a feature that stayed not because of lack of confidence in modern electronics but because, I believe, hard experience in the past.

Take care my friend,

Carlos

Who knows maybe it will eventually get sorted out... in the Aftertime...
The leaders who have pushed hardest for peace were assassinated. That was in Israel and Egypt both.

Carluccio, I hope your trip is blessed. If I do fly, I fly Boeing aircraft exclusively. That's probably the case because I usually fly Continental, as Cleveland is a main hub.  ed
