THAT truly works for me. Glad the Washington Pist thinks so!
To the left, it's not Fair for someone to have an advantage over someone else; it's discrimination.
I remember during the Iraq liberation the left was complaining about American troops having an unfair advantage with their night-vision equipment/Sheesh
I’m betting that the New York Times locks the doors of their offices each night, and that they have security measures between their executive offices and the mean streets of the city.
Using their logic, they should be ashamed of themselves. How can they ever understand the problems of the street dwellers this way? How can they ever learn to co-exist with them?
They should destroy the locks and fire the guards. It’s only fair.
I truly believe my 6 year old grandson has more intellect than the writers at WaPo. What’s said is the writers are voicing the sentiment of a large part of the liberal media.
This guy’s formulation makes no sense. I could see how the dome might be blamed for encouraging Israel to be more aggressive. But to argue it puts Israel in a defensive crouch and allows them to sit back and not pursue peace, huh? If they are able to sit back and enjoy themselves that is peace, you boob.
What he means, probably, is that the defensive shield will dissuade them from sacrificing territory and helping create a freestanding, self-sufficient Palestinian state. Which is called “peace,” but is something else.
One of the (very) few things good things about the MSM in the present day is that they have removed any doubt that they have an almost complete lack of ability in virtually every field - save for lying.
However, they’d receive an “A” in Liberal Logic (the mother of all oxymorons)from any ivy league school.
Israel’s been pursuing peace since 1948. Maybe Iron Dome will prompt a few Palestinians to do the same; deterrence did prompt Israel’s other neigbours to back off.
Ah, the Soviet KGB’s disinformation campaign and arguments is still alive. Wilson’s arguments are basically the same the KGB funded American and European “Peace Movements” used against our nuclear missile forces, the deployment of anti-ballastice missile defenses (ground launched missiles which were actually developed and deployed to one site), and most famously to President Reagan’s Space Defenxe Initiative.
And we see the same today in President Obama’s move to dismantle all of the US’s remaining nuclear weapons under the theory “if we don’t have nukes, other nations won’t ‘fear us’ and will stop wanting their own nukes.”
The liberal mindset: Israel always has to Pursue peace. Even if that means they have to die to do it. If they choose to “not die” that is seen as a negative
The only peace that exists in the middle east is the peace within Israel’s well guarded borders. Outside those borders is chaos and savagery.
The same drivel came from the CPUSA (Communist Party USA aka the enemy within democrats) when Pres Reagan wanted a missile shield. The communists in the former USSR and China all agreed with our Communist Party that this was dangerous.
So the WPost is simply regurgitating their pro-communist agenda. Strength through weakness and lead from behind all in the name of fairness.
It is not fair. Muslims are too stupid to build their own.
“If only more terrorist rockets could blow up Jews in their homes and Jewish children in their schools, we would be closer to world peace, Allahu Akbar” /s
We need to quit looking at this as a war of ideas where we can sway these armchair jihadi socialists with reason, because they don’t care what truth is. They’re operating under the theory that any lie becomes truth if you repeat it often enough.
If this isn’t a wah wah wah moment there has never been one! Gotta love it.
WELL DUH! imagine that horrible situation/sarc.
Is there something going on in outer space somewhere, is the moon full. All morning long has been thread after thread of some IDIOTIC idea by some "journalist" extolling the horror of such as this, or Dowd and her rant on Republicans being stubborn on not wanting to support the 47%'ers and such..
The only problem with the Iron Dome is how much its interceptors cost,it is expensive to stop rockets with that system.Apart from that,it is nearly perfect.It prevents terrorists from killing civilians,it takes no lives.....there is nothing wrong with that.
This article is misleading. I read the Wapo article and it does NOT emphasize the disincentive to peace. The Wapo article was a good one, in fact. It talked about the siege mentality instead of a military defeat.
