Must make sure MORE Israeli's are killed?
, and a
No, we must make sure less Palestinians are killed.

Solution!!!!

Hamas STOPS firing rockets at YOUR, or other Peoples children.

Stop giving Hamas 'A Pass'. Most of your posts, condemning Hamas, have ONE Sentence condemning Hamas, and a paragraph condemning Israel.

Please show the same respect for Hamas, as you do for Israel, by making Hamas responsible for their words and actions.



Why do you like the Israelis so much Clyde?

Trying to understand no understanding of people (Israeli's) attempting to fight people committed to their EXTERMINATION.

Please explain.

And that is the real issue here, proportionality.

Euro-think. War is to be fought to a stalemate so it can continue for 10,000 years!

Please understand the history of This Murderous Movement (950 A.D. to Present). 950 A.D. is not a typo. But the beginning of this movement, in various forms.

They have been constantly 'Defeated'. Meaning: They Stop Fighting (because of Disproportional Response) , until a future date, when they believe they can win. Presently, they started to believe they can win in the 1970's. Read what they say.

No, you can not 'Defeat' this Evil. But, as History has Shown. With enough Disproportional Response: They stop the present fighting. Licking their wounds, and awaiting the Future conflict.

PLEASE read and understand the history.

Nonsense. These movements are rooted in their own contemporary context. Hamas is not the offspring of some terrorists from 1100 years ago.

Nonsense. You have a failure to understand. I was NOT speaking of PLO.

The Jihadist's have not gone away since 950 A.D.. Unless you believe there are continuing idea's, religions have not existed, and are 500, 1000, 2000 years old.

You really don't believe that. Do you?

Spoken as someone whose Family is not being TARGETED for death and extermination.

While Hamas might say they are targeting everyone in Israel for death and extermination, its the Israeli army who is doing the actual killing and exterminating in this conflict. Over a 1000 Palestinians have died, and entire villages have been razed to the ground, while less than 50 Israelis have died so far, with some minimal damage caused by some rockets.

You keep whining about how Hamas stated goal is to kill everyone in Israel, but why don't you look at this through the eyes of a Palestinian who just lost most of his family and his house and all his property even though he had nothing to do with Hamas or this conflict?

Must make sure MORE Israeli's are killed?

HOW DO YOU STOP Hamas? Since they violate every 'Cease Fire', and use negotiations to further their Evil, and Murderous goals.

As an American you should have learned by this point that movements like Hamas are pretty much impossible to destroy through military force. You guys have already tried several times in the past several decades and each time you have failed utterly. What makes you think Israel will succeed where no other state has?

Furthermore, should we accept that in an attempt to destroy Hamas, Israel razes the entire Gaza strip, killing thousands of people or destroying their homes and their property? Haven't you seen the pictures? The way Israel uses force seems more like a way of collective punishment than anything else.

How does 'Good Words', and 'Good Intentions', stop ISIS?



Every small step towards the good, is a major breakthrough these days. Abiding is the message I guess...

How does one protect themselves against ISIS?

Good Words, and Thoughts, does not protect the innocent against Evil. Wielding a Weapon.

However that tit for tat is exactly what Britain and the Allies did say and do when they were fighting the Axis.

The one massive difference being they were fighting a state with a professional army that had control over most of Europe's territory and was more than capable of defending itself and a real threat to the existence of the Allies, not a bunch of militants with minimal training throwing what amounts to little more than rocks at modern tanks. The amount of violence the allies used was for the most part proportional to what the threat and scale of the conflict was. The amount of violence that Israel uses against Hamas is completely out of proportion. And that is the real issue here, proportionality.

I've never denied that Hamas is committing war crimes. I've never said I support them or that I think they are doing the right thing. But just because Hamas is committing war crimes doesn't mean that Israel is therefor allowed to do the same.

@Clyde - you keep asking what we would do to stop Hamas. Put pressure on Israel to: lift the blockade on Gaza:...(

Hamas is a Terrorist Group of persons whose STATED Goal, is to Exterminate The Israeli's.

You are confusing Hamas with The PLO, and Their People.

Hamas only uses any 'Cease Fire' to restock their weapons, and continue their attacks.

HOW DO YOU STOP Hamas? Since they violate every 'Cease Fire', and use negotiations to further their Evil, and Murderous goals.

Wish Israel 'God Speed' in their attempt to stop the spreading Evil of Hamas, and other Murdering Movements associated with them.

When reposting an attribution: Please don't post a partial section, because other parts clarify, and expand the partial. The rest of the attribution goes further than 'The National Government' and then applies it to ANOTHER Governments (States). Thereby making a 'Partial' Post incorrect in its interpretation.

However they did not rely on that in making the decision in Geofroy v. Riggs, they relied on an act of congress.

You may wish to read J.C.F. CHIRAC v. the Lessee of A.F. CHIRAC et. al. 15 U.S. 259 (1817) and HAUENSTEIN v. LYNHAM 100 U.S. 483 Also Harvard Law review Volume 33, page 285.

Question

Do American citizens abroad retain the rights granted to them by the Bill of Rights thus rendering Article 2(11) of the United State Code of Military Justice unconstitutional?

Last time I checked the UCMJ was a federal law.

SCOTUS has constantly ruled that Member's of The Armed Services, are NOT entirely protected, for many good reasons, by Constitutional Provisions.

When I was in the Air Force I found that reading the UCMJ made for some very fascinating reading.

Same here (Army). Did make one understand: 'Your butt is theirs'.

who speaks for planet earth? who speaks for the human species?

the following is a Copy and Paste from Carl Sagan's Book - Cosmos

Carl Sagan asked the following question


we know who speaks for the nations. But who speaks for planet earth ? who speaks for the human species ?


the following Words were writen - 23 Years ago

COSMOS

The story of fifteen billion years of cosmic evolution transforming matter and life into consciousness, of how science and civilization grew up together, and of the forces and individuals who helped shape modern science. A story told with Carl Sagan’s remarkable ability to make scientific ideas both comprehensible and exciting, based on his acclaimed television series.

In love with whole numbers, the Pythagoreans believed all things could be derived from them, certainly all other numbers. A crisis in doctrine arose when they discovered that the square root of two (the ratio of the diagonal to the side of a square) was irrational, that it cannot be expressed accurately as the ratio of any two whole numbers, no matter how big these numbers are. Ironically this discovery (reproduced
in Appendix 1) was made with the Pythagorean theorem as a tool. ‘Irrational’ originally meant only that a number could not be expressed as a ratio.

But for the Pythagoreans it came to mean something threatening, a hint that their world view might not make sense, which is today the other meaning of ‘irrational.’ Instead of sharing these important mathematical discoveries, the Pythagoreans suppressed knowledge of the square root of two and the dodecahedron. The outside world was not to know.* Even today there are scientists opposed to the popularization of science: the sacred knowledge is to be kept within the cult, unsullied by public understanding.

* A Pythagorean named Hippasus published the secret of the ‘sphere with twelve pentagons’, the dodecahedron. When he later died in a shipwreck, we are told, his fellow Pythagoreans remarked on the justice of the punishment. His book has not survived. The pros and cons of the Pythagorean tradition can be seen clearly in the life’s work of Johannes Kepler (Chapter 3). The Pythagorean idea of a perfect and mystical world, unseen by the senses, was readily accepted by the early Christians and was an integral component of Kepler’s early training.

On the one hand, Kepler was convinced that mathematical harmonies exist in nature (he wrote that ‘the universe was stamped with the adornment of harmonic proportions’); that simple numerical relationships must determine the motion of the planets. On the other hand, again following the Pythagoreans, he long believed that only uniform circular motion was admissible.

He repeatedly found the observed planetary motions could not be explained in this way, and repeatedly tried again. But unlike many Pythagoreans, he believed in observations and experiment in the real world. Eventually the detailed observations of the apparent motion of the planets forced him to abandon the idea of circular paths and to realize that planets travel in ellipses. Kepler was both inspired in his search for the harmony of planetary motion and delayed for more than a decade by the attractions of Pythagorean doctrine.

How would you fight, as defined by the UN as a Terrorist Organization (Hamas), who calls for your extermination, and daily attempts to kill your children.

No need to list Israel's faults. HOW WOULD YOU, starting today, stop Hamas?

Not by dropping bombs on schools, hospitals and civilian infrastructure. Win the hearts and minds, give the people of Gaza a realistic alternative, superior alternative to martyrdom and Hamas rule.

Great article, debunks every claim of Israels innocence that has been floating around here.


So it's okay for terrorists to use schools/UN buildings as cover for their attacks?

two wrongs dont make a right....

HOW WOULD YOU, starting today, stop Hamas?

So take a gap year & visit Israel. Come back in 6 months & tell us the same thing. Then go back but this time to Gaza & watch terrorists place rocket launchers in schools, come back & tell us the same thing.

So Sirius, imagine there was some sort of Terrorist Organisation operating in Ireland. Fighting against, lets say, a British Occupation.

No, imagine that these terrorists are nasty sorts and that they do things like blowing up buildings, executing people by cutting off their heads. Stuff like that.

Now imagine that they launched an attack from an Irish school. Are you saying that the British would be well within their rights to bomb that school full of innocent Irish children? Would you, as an Irish person, be totally ok with that?

Not defending Israel's tactics. Only their right to defend themselves.

HOW WOULD YOU, starting today, stop Hamas?

Reid v. Covert 354 U.S. 1 (1956) wrote:
"...No agreement with a foreign nation can confer power on the Congress, or any other branch of government ... The prohibitions of the Constitution were designed to apply to all branches of the National Government

While I know Texas considers itself special, I did not know they were the "National Government."
Geofroy v. Riggs, 133 U.S. 258 (1890) wrote:
a brief reference will be had to the laws of Maryland in force on the 27th of February, 1801, which were on that day declared by act of Congress to be in force in the District of Columbia.

Something seems to have changed as it appears foreign nationals can own land in DC today. Oh, Congress "National Government" must have changed a law.

Quoting cases from 1890 always requires an extensive search to be sure they haven't been invalidated. As Wiki calls Reid v. Covert landmark, what happened to Geofroy v. Riggs?

Constitutional Law was my favorite course in College. The problem with this type of interchange, is that a very complicated subject, with all its nuances, cannot really be addressed.

Yes.
Just keep on saying I am incorrect.

Since the issue was never raised in this case from Texas ...

I suspect at some point this particular issue will get to SCOTUS and they may find that the requirement is fine in the same manner they decided Miranda and right to counsel.

When reposting an attribution: Please don't post a partial section, because other parts clarify, and expand the partial.

I believe I'm wasting my time responding to incorrect, and only partial, attributions.
