"It`s the same region and the region`s inhabitants. Uh huh. It ain`t in the same State." Poor dumdum... It WAS all part of the same region, torn in civil war, and final borders haven't been negotiated yet. "So NO, it isn`t a Civil war." Yes, it is, dumdum. Arabs versus Jews in the Palestine region since 1920, numbskull. me: "Ever heard of Little Bighorn II in 1973.. They weren`t free to resort to violence, and boy, did the U.S. give them a stomping." dumdum: "Uh huh... missiles, bombs? Much collateral was there?" You said the Native Americans were free, right? Well, they weren't free to take over a town, were they? Now, since a bunch of them were massacred, imagine if they felt "free" to launch rockets at other Americans. me: "Why don`t the tribes have observer status in the UN" dumdum: "They`re not a separate non-state entity." They have separate laws, moron. me: " Who owns their mineral rights?" dumdum: "Look it up. If you`re really interested." I already know.
