Support Israel ingoing to war if you feel it will get you votes Mitt, but make sure you make your sons available to fight also. Our present troops are worn out, mentally broke down from the numerous recalls to duty in Iraq & Afgan. It's time to implement what we once did and that is a military draft with stringent requirements as to elegibility. Build our military bases back as part of our infrastruture program and get serious about fighting. This recall, recall over and over again of young married men & women has got to stop! Make everyone eligible and train them. There are plenty to draw from with the unemployed we have in this country and the young adults who have nothing but social illegal activities on the agenda's. Train them, employ them, teach them and lets do what we did when trained people made this country great.

The U.S. would be better served if it distanced itself from the Zionist state of Israel. How this country in "good conscience" has been able to live with itself as long as it has is quite puzzling.

Re: IMAN

So you want to open the door to anti-semitism. Go ahead, but remember the same people who did the 911 attacks, the same people who strap bombs to themselves and murder children, the same people who stone women to death for some transgression, the same people who would put homosexuals to death, the same people who insist that one day we all must follow their religion, whether we want to or not, those same people are the ones that want Israel destroyed and all Jews driven into the sea. That Mr. or Ms. IMAN is who you support with your statement. People like you are the ones that are quite puzzling.

Hitler would have agreed with your viewpoint. He enlisted Adolf Eichmann to come up with a solution to the Jewish "problem". We refer to it as the Holocaust.

I don't agree with those who think the Jews should turn the other cheek and let the Arabs take their turn at destroying them.

Romney is in so far over his head. It is astounding. See what Charles Krauthammer (one of the conservative columnists preferred by the DesNews) said about the London fiasco? I quote: "It's unbelievable, it's beyond human understanding, it's incomprehensible. I'm out of adjectives...."

He said the purpose of Romney's trip was merely to express solidarity with America's British allies, and say nice things about his foreign hosts.

"All Romney has to do, say nothing," Krauthammer said. "It’s like a guy in the 100-meter dash. All he has to do is to finish, he doesn’t have to win. And instead, he tackles the guy in the lane next to him and ends up disqualified. I don’t get it."

And in Israel, Romney showed it was the Israelis who give the marching orders. Newsweek this week has it right.
