Federal government does that sort of thing all the time to make states comply with regulations. Remember the National Minimum Drinking Act of 1984, which tied federal hwy funding to compliance? This "tax" effects 17 states, so people in those states need to take it up with their governor or pay a premium. From my end, it looks like the grandstanding leadership of those states are the ones making people pay more in healtcare. Or, more accurately, the insurance companies who will be passing the cost on as they are so apt to do.

Gee, Healy, I guess then that the Israeli-Palestinian problem is the first
in the history of the world to be completely caused and resolveable only
by one side? AMAZING!

Well Karl do you support HAMAS or Israel? I havent heard of Israelis flying planes into buildings,, or wearing explosive undies, shoes or the like.

I support both in hoping they find peace and security and I support neither to the extent they use violence. My views and that of HealyJ are aligned. You should listen to him, he knows what he's talking about

And make no mistake, if it weren't for our support for Israel, 9-11 is unlikely to have happened. To book Israel has sent spies to the US (some in Jail now) and DID attack the US LIberty with plans, killing Americans in 1967. Google it.

And you know which country in the world would be most likely to assassinate a US president? I wouldn't be surprised at all if a US president took a sharply "we aren't going to give Israel Foreign aid anymore and stand up for the in the US, they'd be the ones to kill the president"

You're totally wrong equating the PLO and Hamas. Quite spewing about what you know nothing about, and also Hamas has NOTHING to do with Worldwide terrorism. They are locked in in their regional conflict...period.

It's very basic dude. There were about 14,000 Jews in the land of Israel just after the turn of the century (1900) now they have everything. How do you think they got it? If you were one of the dude that got squeezed off your land and your family killed, you'd be the most fearsome terrorist on the planet. I know you. Don't even deny it.

You complain about IEDs and such but it's really just about what they have to fight with. Israel has tanks and F16s. Take all that away and they'd be terrorist too, just like they actually were when they fought the British and were blowing up hotels and stuff



always step into the other guys shoes and ask "What would I do?"

Peace

Boo!!

You know Bluering, I though you were saying Al Queda was behind Beghazi and Iran is not an Al Queda place. Not Wahabbi there.

Plus, you know we're attacking them already right? Flying drones over their land, messing with their internet, and somebody is assassinating their scientists.

Not to mention we forced sanctions on them

And let's not forget it was only 1954 when our CIA helped overthrow their democratically elected president and put in a ruthless dictator, all because they wanted to control their own oil

Remember what Jesus said, Get the log out of your own eye before you complain about the twig in somebody else's. We're bringing this sh#t down on ourselves by being in everyone elses sh#t at huge expense to our both in money and consequences.

If other countries did 1/10th the things we routinely do to other countries, you'd be called to nuke them

And don't you think falsely invading one country, killing 100's of thousands and making Millions of refugees should disqualify us from doing that again? Sorta like why Germany abstained from recognizing Palestine even though they wanted to.

Peace

PLO, aka Hamas

Ron, Hamas has never been a part of the PLO and its history includes longstanding conflict with Fatah (the largest and most influential group in the PLO.) This is hardly surprising as since the beginning, Hamas has been encouraged (and even funded in the early days) by Israel as a foil to the secular Fatah. Here's a pretty good rundown from the commies at the WSJ:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123275572295011847.html

Late last year there was talk of Hamas joining the PLO. This made the Likudniks in Israel blow a gasket:

If this happened they could no longer play the groups off against each other.

Do you see two sides when you look at that map? the Israeli right does not, and never has, intended to settle and the Hamas developed specifically in response to that reality. Had the Israelis had any remote interest in settling they could have entirely headed off Hamas' very existence decades ago. Hamas only exits as a due to Israeli intransigence.

Iran already attacked us.

Iran had no involvement in the attack - the attack was committed by Salafis which is a fundamentalist Sunni sect, not a Shiite one. In fact, the Salafi are actively countering Iranian-backed Shiite influence in North Africa.

Attacking Iran would be an ideological victory for hard-line Salafists / Wahhabis, tipping the regional balance-of-power in favor of the ultra-orthodox. This is not a minor consequence. Like it or not, Iranís Twelver Shiite national ideology is somewhat of a counterbalance to the ultra-orthodox Salafists in the region.

And that's the whole problem with all the whole global 'Caliphate' / 'culture' hysteria - before either the shiites or sunnis posed a strategic threat in the region they'd have to survive a bitter and protracted regional sectarian war from which no one will emerge as the 'last man standing'. The entire concept is bankrupt nonsense, mostly pushed by one academic 'culture' warrior.
