According to the philosophy of these people: Western Christian's and Jewish persons/countries/cultures are expected to be more civilized, and Non-Western, non Jewish and Christian people are not expected to be (because they are Inferior?).

We have a winner. Passive aggressive racism. On DLS Reports I got a warning for mentioning Mexicans. In the same thread I mentioned Canadians in the same context and it was fine. I was talking about the superior US Phone Company and the passive aggressive racists put me into their mindset.

This happens all the time.

We know the foundation of these warnings. It is not good.

Do you ever read anything people post or do you just skim it and then only make comments that usually have only very limited relevance to the subject.

TWA 800 happened, we are not discussing why it happened, although that has been covered to most sensible peoples satisfaction as being a build up of fuel vapour ignited by an electrical spark. Not some silly conspiracy.

Reference to TWA 800 is relevant as the trauma suffered then will probably be similar to what happened with MH17.

My apology. Misunderstood. :(

the loss of cabin pressure can cause hypoxia within seconds at 33,000 feet, leading to loss of consciousness.

Hopefully very few seconds!

But Waldock said...

While it would have taken the plane minutes to fall from 33,000 feet, hypoxia would have rendered anyone who survived the initial blast unconscious within 30 seconds

Perhaps, and hopefully, less.

This was the information told to me by NTSB Investigators, while at the scene of a 707 crash, decades ago.

The HUMAN SHIELDS Hamas is using?

Do tell how these teens were acting like human shields for Hamas when an Israeli sniper shot them.

Story

Video

Even the Israeli media confirms it

If Es is acting like a shill for Hamas, you are acting like a shill for Israeli state terror inflicted upon the Palestinian population.

The foundation of this argument is, at best, the primitive idea of Western Superiority.

According to the philosophy of these people: Western Christian's and Jewish persons/countries/cultures are expected to be more civilized, and Non-Western, non Jewish and Christian people are not expected to be (because they are Inferior?). If you do not hold OTHER countries/people/religions/cultures/races, etc., to the same high standard's as YOUR country/people/religion/culture/races, etc.,: We know what that really means.

Just 'flip the coin'.

Have the people of Israel use the tactics of Hamas. They would rightly be condemned of 'Committing Crimes Against Humanity'.

Waiting for the same demonstration's against those who store their weapon's among their children, and demand their children remain.

We will not, and we know why.

A report from the doctor who studied TWA 800,

The blast force from the missile that slammed into a Malaysian plane over Ukraine, combined with the plane’s dramatic deceleration, probably instantly rendered everyone on board unconscious or dead.

That’s the best guess of James Vosswinkel, a trauma surgeon who led a definitive study of TWA Flight 800 that exploded and crashed off New York’s Long Island in 1996, killing all 230 on the flight. The Malaysian plane carried 298.

Dr Vosswinkel’s research found that trauma in a mid-air explosion occurs from three sources: the force of the blast, the massive deceleration when a plane going 800km/h stops in mid-air, and the impact of the fall.

Additionally, the loss of cabin pressure can cause hypoxia within seconds at 33,000 feet, leading to loss of consciousness.

‘‘You have such horrific forces that it’s essentially unsurvivable,’’ said Dr Vosswinkel, chief of trauma and surgical critical care at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, in a telephone interview.

"No one was conscious or experienced that fall."

OMG!

We're back to TWA 800, The CIA/Pentagon/Mafia/Castro/FBI killed Kennedy, Area 51, hidden Alien bodies...

Let's stick to the REAL Subject Matter.

Mexico was in possession of Stolen Property. It was stolen originally by the Spanish. The US 'Stole' - Stolen Property, would be more accurate.

When Mexico gives all back to the Aztecs, Mayans, etc., who do want THEIR land back. Then Mexico will have some moral authority in this matter.

Hah, stolen property. Rich coming from an American.

Glad you agree with me: Mexico = America, in this.

To those who say SCREW the 'Original' Mexicans: Says a lot about you.

Perhaps the reason for Western intel not definitively showing Putin is driving the separatist militia is that protection of plausible deniability.

If Russian support was proven beyond doubt there is no reason not to send the full Russian military. In for a penny, in for a pound.

Anyway, it's not as if Russian support of a belligerent in a civil war is a bad thing. Worked out pretty good for the Vietnamese.

Welcome Daykay...

Makes no sense. As usual.

Does The PLO/Hamas accept the existence of Israel?

You are confusing day-to-day tactical responses, with the Foundational Problem:

The PLO/Hamas want the destruction of the Israeli State. Until they renounce this: There can never be true steps towards peace.

The first step towards Peace is REALLY in The PLO/Hamas Court. Not Israel.

PLO/Hamas MUST ACCEPT ISRAEL'S EXISTANCE!!!

You keep saying this as if it is the only thing going on here. Stop banging that drum and you might hear some of what Israel is doing to make this situation worse.

Israel needs to accept Palestine's existence.
That means they need to stop the inhumane blockade.
They need to stop deliberately targeting children.
They need to stop detaining people without trial.
They need to stop settling Palestinian land.

Sayed Kashua: why I have to leave Israel


Understand your thinking. It just aides and abets the Terrorists.

Doesn't really matter. Hamas (The Cheering Children Killer's) is getting more isolated. They are so bad: They have recently lost the financial backing if Iran, and the Political backing of other Mid-East Country's.

Why do you still act like a shill for these Murderers?


You do understand that Chris Hedges is talking about Israel targeting children not Hamas, don't you?

The HUMAN SHIELDS Hamas is using?

What you see in these two episodes. Is an under reaction, and over reaction, response.

Apparently, we have no Politicians, Police Commander's, nor District Attorneys, who care about the truth.

Meanwhile back in California;
California Highway Patrol investigators have seized the medical records of a woman seen on video being repeatedly punched by one of its officers on the side of a Los Angeles freeway.
Why do they need her psychiatric medical history? They are grasping at straws on this. Remember when they say medical records are private the are lying. NEVER seek help for a mental health problem it can and will be used against you.

Seem silly to request medical records. They apparently have nothing to do with the Officer's actions.

Anyway Detroit water seems very unimportant at this point in time. There is a real concern on breaking news.

Yeah, we know!

6 California's

What a waste of $2,000,000!

Why dont we just give it back to Mexico? We stole it from them in a made up war anyway. Give it back to them and then be done with it.

The sad thing is that, in the end, Putin will win: Greater Russia!!!.

Russia is the '500 pound gorilla' in the region.

http://abc7.com/news/nypd-cops-chokehold-may-not-have-seriously-injured-mans-throat/203167/
A man who died after a New York City police officer took him to the ground in a chokehold appeared to have little damage to his neck and trachea, according to preliminary autopsy results, a law enforcement source said, but that may not be enough to keep him from being disciplined or even facing criminal charges.

Anybody looking at the video, without an agenda, can see there was no 'Choke Hold'.

Appears NYC going the way of Chicago. Both now have Left Wing Ideologue Mayor's who do not care for Victim's, nor the people assigned to protect them.

Very sad.

Youtube isn't, but the section is from CNN, which is mainstream media.

CNN talking heads are NOT mainstream any more than Rush Limbaugh is. This is truly sad if you are serious. I do hope you are just having sport with Batter Up.

CNN, FOX, MSNBC, BBC, etc., are all the same.

There are no Main Stream (read legitimate) New Organizations anymore, if there ever was.

The best one can do is watch All the 'News' Shows, and then form an opinion.

Are you referring to yourself?

I've never claimed that Hamas is the good party here or that they never violated any cease fire agreements.

Who said Israel is without sin?

Mainstream? A YouTube blog is NOT mainstream. I don't know weather to laugh or cry. The other two are tripe and not worthy of comment.

Youtube isn't, but the section is from CNN, which is mainstream media.

And sure, just ignore the evidence that doesn't suit with your convictions.

It is time for the Non-Russian European Country's to FINALLY take responsibility for Their Continent.

Is it US vs Europe time again?
I don't think "we people" like that:(

Time for Europe to grow up, and take responsibly for THEIR problems.
This is not "US vs Europe".
Europe has been living under 'Daddy's Roof' for too long. Understand the problem when 'kicked out of the nest'. But the time has come for Europe to take responsibility.

You are sounding like Putin:)

Understand the pain, and name calling. Comes with growing up.

This, anti Israeli rant is TOTALLY absurd.

Solution, agreed by Israel, over the years: TWO States. Israel and Palestine. Perhaps never to be friends. Perhaps something like a Divorced Couple.

Why will the Palestinians/Hamas (they are now allied) not accept this concept, and all they do is just call for the destruction of Israel?

FIRST step to the long process toward peace: Accept the existence of Israel, by their enemy's. The ball IS NOT in Israel's Court.

Question: Does Israel have a right to exist? Those responding NO. Please explain.

For one, Israel does not accept the two state solution itself. So, they can't even agree on that.

http://www.jpost.com/Diplomacy-and-Politics/Ministers-reject-anti-annexation-bills-337179

http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/insideisrael/2013/July/Netanyahus-Party-Rejects-Two-States/

http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/world-news/israel-rejects-usled-negotiations-twostate-solution-has-no-validity-28473092.html

Even if the concept of a two state solution is accepted by Israel, there is still the issue of the borders. The Palestinians want to use the 1967 borders which Israel rejects since it has moved a substantial part of its population into the other side of that border.

So why do the Palestinians reject the two state solution? Well for now they have been rejecting it because its not a good deal for them. They lose more territory and it would heavily favor Israel. They don't think thats fair and I can't blame them for thinking that.

And its just Hamas that calls for the destruction of Israel. Abbas and his party do not. The problem is that Hamas controls the Gaza strip and Abbas has no control over them.

Finally, whether the actions of Hamas are acceptable is an irrelevant question. Of course they are not acceptable and there can be no deal with a group that fundamentally rejects the existence of Israel. However, that does not give Israel a blank cheque to do what it wants. Israels actions must also be scrutinized and currently Israeli actions do not hold up well under scrutiny. Its breaching various international treaties that it has signed, it is blatantly violating human rights and one could even argue that war crimes are being committed. Israel, like Hamas, MUST be held to account if peace is ever going to get a chance.

And this is another point of contention which makes the situation of the Palestinians difficult. They clearly see that Israel IS NEVER held to any form of account. UN statements that are deemed critical of Israel are either toned down or rejected, the US vetoes everything that is even slightly critical or unwanted by Israel, investigations are stonewalled, their eventual findings are rejected or ignored and the Zionist lobby all around the world silences critics by calling them Anti-Semites and piling them with Neo-Nazis and holocaust deniers. So, it should come as no surprise that the Palestinians hold very little trust in the international community because they clearly see they are extremely biased towards Israel.

Does The PLO/Hamas accept the existence of Israel?

You are confusing day-to-day tactical responses, with the Foundational Problem:

The PLO/Hamas want the destruction of the Israeli State. Until they renounce this: There can never be true steps towards peace.

The first step towards Peace is REALLY in The PLO/Hamas Court. Not Israel.
