What makes the US unique is the diverse nature of its states and people and its tolerance for those whom we peacefully disagree with. The strength of the country is reflected in its union. Separatism in a democracy such as our's is an admission that being in the minority is intolerable and is sign...

Using IDF as a source is a little suspect, don't you think (referring to the map)? They are in a war. Would they be biased in any way? Not saying this isn't true, but let's face it, Israel has been shaping American opinions for decades.
The God or Satan question you ask is pretty ridiculous. ...

I'm pretty sure your post was made with sarcasm, which I'm ok with. But seriously, instead of moaning about what an awful program it is, why don't the States do something about it? It'd be better than being a chronic victim. ...

Truthfully, it wouldn't bother me if a meteor the size of Rhode Island made a strategic impact in this region which has generated so much hatred and violence.
