It's nice to think so ,but who do you think arms Israel ? We do .
This is the entire crux of the matter of the Gaza strip . Not who is doing the fighting ,but who's arming them both .
Its like Vietnam . The Russians were arming and funding the Vietcong .
We were fighting Russia,but no Russians died . Smart,right ?
War is great,as long as it takes place OVER THERE .

Better to let Iran and Syria arm the Palestinians and let the Israelis just die?
Remind me to never count on you as a friend if i ever need help protecting myself.
War in the region doesnt have to happen, the Palestinians could simply stop blowing up buses and launching mortars into Israel.

I'm starting to see a common theme to your posts.
No matter what the topic, America is the problem, Americans are bad.
You seem to suffer from a severe case of White guilt.
Let it go, unless you personally harmed another; what hapopened in the past is not your responsibility.
I never dealt in slaves, i never killed Indians, i am not going to let it bother me.
Other nations have done worse and i dont hold their people today responsible for the crimes of their ancestors.
I am going to make an assumption here, but i would imagine you are a Democrat and voted for Obama.
Posts like yours are quite common among the Obama crowd that believes a debt is owed because they were born white.

Just push it a little farther away in orbit? Is THAT all? Why, that wouldn't effect anything here on earth, right?


Again, eighth grade education....

And as for this silly idea that American society has been the most ruthless or immoral through history... again, EIGHTH grade education.

The largest nuclear weapon ever detonated on earth was the Czar bomb, at 57 megatons.
To blow-up the moon, it would take 600 BILLION of those bombs to blow-up the moon, if they got their math right.

I agree with this . I think one of the problems in America is that some peopel stay living in the past, well if we keep living in the past we will never settle it or leave it at peace . I do not feel responsible for what happened tto any race in America UNLESS I myself had done something , in which case I did not . We will continue to go no where unless people stop thinking we owe something to someone somewhere . They have colleges for the african americans they have free fund money they give to native decendants , I do believe they are getting enough stuff to repay for they sufferings that happened oh lets see IN THE PAST ! It should be over and done with , but sadly it never will be and this coarse will be argued hundred of years from now ....

I mean come on , a lady at the supermarket took the last hamburger meat , so does that mean she and her family and her relatives for thousand of years owe me ? Sheesh I better go hound her down , oh and the gentlemen that stole my parking place, I should hunt him down too , oh oh and the couple that out bid me on a house I should go after them as well . Lets see .... Well I should get a list out this will take a while and oh I must not forget to write to them and let them know that their kids and their children will owe my family too even though they are not the ones that did me wrong !

It was the Cold War. I'd be surprised if we found somewhere that some general didn't at one time say 'eh... Maybe'.

Not at all .Americans slaughtered Indians well past the revolutionary war .
I can look up details if you like ,but it was into mid- late 1800s. It's why we have so many cool photos of Indians. The camera was invented before wild roaming Indians were all forced onto reservations .my favorite is the Lakota Sioux photos. Especially Slow Bull.I love him .

Oh I didn't know that. I thought it all happened early on.

Stupid moon.  Who needs it anyways?  Not me, and certainly not America!!  The rest of you losers the world over can just kiss my red white and blue behind.  You're all here at our whim, beck, and call.  We're number one all others are number two or more.  We landed there, it's ours now and you have no right to try and tell us what we can or cannot do with it!

Hey guys, did anyone besides Sakari read the article, the part where it said this was Carl Sagan's plan to blow up the moon?



Wrongo, Israel wins this hands down everytime.

Until they are disarmed the rest of us are not safe!
Let us all know how you get on with that idea.....   :w00t: :gun:

I cannot bring myself to believe this nonsense..It does not in any way make sense

I found this ...


    Bad Science Reporting 101: No they didn't plan on blowing up the Moon

I would have imagined that anyone with even a 5th grade education would know enough science to skeptical of the rather looney (pun intended) idea the United States planned to blow up the Moon to impress the Russians.  Alas, I had forgotten that a lack of scientific knowledge, along with a lack of skeptical inquiry into any absurd claim against the "Military-Industrial Complex" was a requirement for success in the humanities, including journalism.

You have likely read or seen news reports that "Project A119", also known as "A Study of Lunar Research Flights" was a newly discovered secret plan to "blow up" the Moon. Some of these come from allegedly credible sources, such a Brian Williams on MSNBC.  Other outlets include Forbes, a CBS affiliate, Yahoo News, and countless others.

The only problem is it's not quite true.  This story originated with the Daily Mail, an entertaining British tabloid better known for celebrity scandals than for accurate science stories.  And even there story came closer to the truth than some of the derivative articles. They note that "a missile carrying a small nuclear device was to be launched from an undisclosed location and travel 238,000 miles to the moon, where it would be detonated upon impact."and that the "planners decided it would have to be an atom bomb because a hydrogen bomb would have been too heavy for the missile."

The Daily Mail  is known to publish stories that people don't give a toss for..   I tried to find this on Sky News, and I got nothing ..
