    Ahh, here we go... someone is now claiming it is a massacre. I knew it wouldn't be long. Of course notice the usual European suspects are not jumping on the band wagon yet.

    And who thinks it is a smashing idea for a Government to cede total control of its own territory to terrorist groups and their supporters?

    Lebanon has been a shithole for forty years. People getting killed by artillery shells there is not even news.

    As I said earlier to you, I think that having 150K Americans tied up in Iraq is significantly degrading our ability to respond elsewhere in the region and significantly reducing our moral influence with the rest of the world.

    Ya, we sure would be headed into Lebanon if we just weren't in Iraq.

    I never said that. I said that Iraq has diminished our ability to respond to the rest of the region and diminished our moral authority to do so.

    it's as much on topic as you going on about democratic approval ratings in the other thread :eusa_dance:

    and I only point out that Lebanon has been a mess for a long long time.... and we have been unable to positively impact the situation on the ground there for nearly 50 years of on again-off again trying... and that if we WANTED to have a positive impact on Lebanon, our involvement in Iraq would make that all but impossible

    So in a thread ABOUT democratic poll numbers, it is off topic to discuss democratic poll numbers?

    Ohh so now you get to dictate how , when and with what we respond to you in any thread you started?

    Also correct me if I am wrong but didn't YOU start ranting to a certain "lovable" rightwing fanatic about "democratic" poll numbers?
