   So apparently the only reason Tel Aviv isn't littered with smoking craters is because the Israel-hating, secret Muslim president of the US made sure they hade the "Iron Dome" rocket intercept system

Isn't the idea of rockets not being able to strike Israel one of the events leading up to the Rapture? I seem to remember that from the first book of Left Behind.

This is just more evidence that not only is Obama a muslim loving communist, he's also incompetent. Imagine the hell we would be living in if he weren't so stupid.

No. Israel plays no part in the Ragnarok.

The good news is, with global warming, the Fimbulwinter is highly unlikely.

Over 8000 rockets had been fired into Israel over the last 4 years.  I'm pretty sure that Israel is justified in Iron Dome, Dome Kun and anyother thing they want to do right now.

Gawd almighty, do you realize what you've just done? Now someday I'm going have to write a humor novel about the end of the world where ALL the competing doomsday scenarios from all the worlds's religions and myths come true setting off an absolute logistical nightmare...(and it will of course have to feature Thor and St MIchael going toe to toe at some point)

The article i read before this was an interview with a woman who lost four children all under eight in a strike against [whothefarkcares.jpg]. As a person who's lost a child and knows that pain well, a giant mother-farking fark-you-up-the-ass for every person involved in the death of an innocent child, whatever side.

You're both as bad as each other. Enjoy your hells. Especially you, Israel. Evil assholes.

So missile defense doesn't escalate tensions.

You do know that Israel buys the vast majority of their arms and tech from the US? So basically every dollar that we send over there for that purpose is just dressed up corporate warfare for the military industrial complex.

Heh. But you're right, it's corporate welfare. It's exactly the kind of cuts that need to happen in our government. There should be no selective tax breaks for companies. It is not the government's job to see that a company succeeds with a tax break. They can be across the board breaks that companies can meet the requirements of, but there should never be one on one breaks. The government should never directly commission a business.

You're absolutely right. There shouldn't be selective tax breaks for companies, there shouldn't be any taxes at all. End corporate taxes make federal sales taxes skyrocket and only have income tax on the top 10% and only make that around 10-15% percent. That way you cant dodge taxes and everyone gets to help out. Perfect really.

I'm not sure how you got on the topic of taxes, but I like to respond if I'm able.

Well, I was talking about the role of government and corporate welfare, so selective tax benefits are related. But ending all corporate taxes is where you've gone completely off the path and I'm getting the hell out now.

Dammit this is a thread about Obama and his supposed hipocracy about being Muslim. And that some how not liking Israel overstepping their power is the same as Iaraels right to defend themselves.

Ever heard of a "false flag" operation, subby? Obama's support of Israel has several benefits:
1) Rallies his allies in Palestine behind a common enemy.
2) Tricks gullible Americans like you into thinking he's a regular Peace Loving American (because gullible folks like you also think that's not an oxymoron).
3) Helps get him cred with the jewish-controlled librul media, without whom he wouldn't have gotten elected.

Basically he needs this thing to escalate in such a way that Israel deals the first big strike and comes out looking like the bad guys.
Also, I heard he plans to arm the Israelis with potato cannons next.

Look, just like thread 3131460 when you were very angry when I (correctly, I'll add) was pointing out how it was incorrect that the Palestinians weren't making talks for all of Jerusalem, this is a figure that is wrong by more than half.

I've pointed it out, and you have the nerve to jump down my throat, again?

I was traveling 100% for my job, and they were very popular at the time, and easy to pick up in airport bookstores. I was thinking maybe I could appreciate them on the level of like The Omen and such. Turned out to be an interesting social experiment. You wouldn't believe the True Believers who struck up conversations with me. It gave me alot of insight, actually.

Which was good because the books really sucked. Poorly written regardless of the subject matter. Luckily I could ingest a volume in about 3 hours.

The US has always been in favor of theater missile defense. I don't know of any major organization or prominent politician who's argued against it.

What some people oppose is strategic missile defense.

Sorry for your loss, snuff3r, as I know exactly how you feel.

That's why war should be avoided at all costs because innocents die on both sides. I cannot hold Israel totally responsible for these children's deaths as Hamas has recklessly attacked Israel with rockets, bombs, and human Kamikazes. Children have died past from these attacks. More could have died if not for this missile defense system. Israel's response is simply self-defense. How we keep getting to this point of conflict is explained by a quote from a well-known Israeli.

"Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us." ~ Golda Meir
