Winning the Hearts and Minds

Evidently G Bush thinks slapping people across the face is a great way to win their hearts and minds. We have lost their hearts and minds. Notice more terrorist plots? I do

They seem to believe ignorance means strength

If they refuse to admit the truth, then the truth cannot become real, right?

Everyone's a Winner!

When these guys proclaim victory, they know what they're talking about. Don't you doubt it for one second mediagirl. Just look at their track record.

the people in Israel that

the people in Israel that support the war have the same type of mindset as those in America who constantly preach "killing them all because they want to kill us all"... The mind-numbing justifications they give involving a thousand years of murder on both sides don't seem to sink in. You have been killing each other for thousands of years. The only peace begins with dialogue and diplomacy. Empathy and understanding. Turn around the loving their children quote to: When you can love Their children as your own, they will love your children as their own. Peace is the only way to get peace. And some will kill anybody to prevent it from happening.

Very much like Hezbollah in that way

Hate and kill. Never mind that that just makes it all worse, raising the hate and desire to kill on the other side.

My objection is more to the kind of response Israel made. They bombed neighborhoods and killed hundreds of civilians. They justified it by saying, "We have a right to defend ourselves." This is true, but bombing civilians is not an act of self defense.

It's not that Hezbollah was in the right. Far from it. But that Israel's response was inappropriate almost to the point of irrelevance.

Does God make any more women

Does God make any more women like you ? I hope so. I love the thingy on Ryan Dobson. I see you know the scriptures but you are a feminist. Oh thank God Christianity is still alive. And liberal Christians have girl (this matters) with a whip for a tongue. There is a just God.
