No you did not.
If you are so informed then go ahead and tell us what happened last week between Turkey and the Kurds which is the premise of this post before you hijacked it for your false agenda.
Try to explain in plain English why is it that Turkey had to hold its horses after the US told it to settle the fuk down? Try to explain to us why Turkey did actually take the sensible road and has not invaded?

The very Far Left were socialists but the Left did run the war. You really need to read more and, while the southern democrats fought against the CRA, WW2 era Democrats were much like today, having lived through the great depression and starting the SSA, CCC, WPA and other social programs to put Americans to work. The start of welfare as we know it was also started under Roosevelt.

So, again, it was very much the Democrats on the Left that took WW2 to Europe and the Pacific.

Sorry....1940's and 50's Democrats were way to the right of where they are today.....and in fact today would be called republicans based on political standing. THey were Democrats only in name.

And don't forget what else the Democrats brought us....decades of institutionalized waste. In the program called Welfare. Something that outlived any value after the end of the great depression. Something that wasted more money for nothing of any value than anything in US history.

Or Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, I'm surprised the UN and the left didn't rally to their deffense like they are to Hamas and Hesbolah.
Actually a good number of folk on the left did complain that the FBI overstepped at both Ruby Ridge and Waco. Investigations proved the complaints correct at Ruby Ridge but Waco was whitewashed so bad that no truth could ever come of that one other than people died that did not need to.

Well, Rice just finished a visit to Beirut. She too asked for a cease-fire as part of a deal. Tony Blair today expressed the urgent need for a cease-fire.

What facts.....decades of waste throwning money down the shitter on welfare bums.....I'm just surprised it was a democrat who finally put an end to it. That was one of very few things I can give slick willy credit for doing.

Read behind the lines.....Hesbolah has to disarm...unles they do there is no cease fire. Status quo is not acceptible. Of course your Prime Minister still wants to suck up to the people who started all of this and rejected it. So expect more of the same till he wakes up and smells the coffee. (american english idiom) or comes to know what side of his bread is buttered. (american english idiom)

Tough...No cease fire....nobody gave a shit about Isreals citizens when it was Hamas and Hesbolah lobing the rockets.....

after all, jewish lives have no value to the UN.
You just don't have a clue do you? A cease fire allows both sides to stand down and no civilians on either side get killed or fear for their lives while smart, calm heads sort this mess out. No one is going to set back and just let a five year war of attrition linger at the border. That is just about the stupidest of all possible options available. And you can't take Hezbollah out of Lebonan, they are Lebonanese. They are a integral part of the country and always will be.

I know SA but don't hold too much hope there. Our president himself will be opposing her request. Here is an article that shows his stance on the issue: http://www.abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory?id=2228371
"White House officials said President Bush remains opposed to an immediate cease-fire to stop violence in the Middle East, despite personal pleas from ally Saudi Arabia that he help stop the bloodshed."

Unless he is pulled away from his warmonger friends to be "explainified" about the situation without filters he aint gonna get it.
