    Natalie, My leftist credentials are as far left as yours are, just ask the right wingers on talk-back. Nevertheless, I am sure that you are wrong about your assessment of the "next war." There are very few, even among the haters here on talk-back, that wish that kind of destruction on anyone. Even Paul Harris would stand on his head to prevent the use of non-conventional weapons for the purposes of annihilating the Arab residents of the West Bank. As much as the Lieberman-Ultra-Zionists want the Arabs gone, they would never advocate wholesale slaughter. Otherwise, why would they go to such pains now to avoid genocide? A Darfurian style genocide would solve the most obvious problems associated with the Palestinians. Israel is militarily capable of such slaughter but their morality is still stronger than their military. Ghengis Kahn or Julius Caesar would never have agonized over the situation the way the Israeli generals have. Peace. Steve
