    Israel's military is like a dead man walking and Hamas recognizes this . Amazing isn't it? Yet the writing has been on the Wall for a long time as people have been turning against war making and unrest..... Not just since the misled war on Iraq & the blood- bath it unleashed between Sunnis & Shiites and the unjust expansion of that war into Afghanistan and parts of Africa...today. But since the Vietnam War and government lies and the insanity of the weapons build up during the Cold War, plus the Cuban Missile Crisis ..... And let us not forget JFK's Bay of Pigs. (He threat- ened to smash the CIA into a thousand pieces and throw them into the wind for getting him involved in that conflict....(see url below.) Plus, all the European countries have given up their war making and control of the colonies too. Only the elite in the American establishment con- inue with their foolish designs but they are failing and will continue to fail all over the Middle East as they did in Latin American for the last 60 yrs (see URL below.) Today, Americans are demanding the war money come home , cities majors have joined the chorus of voices as well and say they need the money to repair or replace aging infrastructure and bridge the gap in their budgets... So go on talking about your military strikes and aggression just don't be surprised to find your- selves forced to kiss the Middle East goodbye as people won't support your stay there..Dutch http://www.amazon.com/Legacy-Ashes-History-Tim-Weiner/dp/038551445X
