    Am I the only one who is kinda worried about all the things happening over there? I know there's always been unrest but seems like it's escalated. I do not follow it close enough to even explain who is on whose side in that shithole but maybe I should start.

    As long as they are killing each other, which the've done since the beginning of time, it's all good with me....it's less our guys will have to kill which eventually they will. It's us or them.

    You musta missed nine eleven.

    There's also rising concern about "it" spreading. Make sure your phone is charged if you plan to fly.

    CNN must read TF cause I turn on TV and headline reads: "Middle East Conflict Escalating Now."

    The only side you need to worry about being on is our side. They all hate us. It doesn't matter if they are a Shiite or a Sunni. They hate us. We are the Infidels. We are the New York Yankees and the Crimson Tide of the world. They are the Middle East School of Camel Herding. They can't have what we have so they want to destroy us. I wouldn't care if we turned the entire area into a radioactive parking lot.

    Perhaps Captain Kirk could beam them all to Rigel 3. Another practical solution.

    I looked and I saw something about a tipping point....


    But I digress.....

    Perhaps the latest conflict being referenced here is the situation in Gaza. Hamas (allegedly) kidnapped 3 Jewish teenagers including an American. They were all found dead. Not a smart thing to do....the giant was already awake and it just pissed him off all the more. A Palestinian teen was beat up and burned alive in retaliation (not supported by Netanyahu). Israel is in full on kick-their-ass mode and Palestine is trying to keep up. It will get worse before it gets back to the normal, day-to-day bombings and shit.

    Hey Israel wanted that land let them police it. There is a reason our ancestors left those continents.
