Mike, I'm not saying that I have sympathy for the Palestinians who hate Israel; I'm merely stating that it would be a very smart move on the part of the Israelis to think up such a plan, however unlikely because the US will be more sensitive to Isreael's plight.
In response to #19, if you live in a country like Sudan or Lebanon or Yemen where known terrorists are helped and protected, then yeah, I hope we scour, bomb and salt the earth of those countries. I'm sorry, but many of those countries are filled with religious fanatics who have nothing more on their minds than wiping out Westerners. I'm really sick and tired of letting these countries play games with us while we sit idly by and watch our fellow countrymen die.
If Bush does nothing I will be sorely disappointed, and I'm sure that it will encourage more terrorists. A Lion may look fearsome with its sharp teeth and claws, but if it doesn't use them to protect itself the Hyenas will tear it to pieces bit by bit.
