    Canadian, sorry if their elections didn't turn out the way GWBush wanted them to. But he said he couldn't help the Gazan people until they held elections. Oops. The next day, the Hamas invited my country's leaders to negotiations. AND THE JERKS (FOR WHOM I DIDN'T VOTE) TURNED THEM DOWN. We systematically refuse to accept all sorts of offers; Geneva Initiative, Saudi Initiative, etc. and continue to blame them. We've got everything; they've got nothing. We scorched our way out of Gaza after loosing too many good soldiers who were protecting kids travelling to their piano lessons from Netzarim. Maybe you don't, but I remember it well. What a waste. Mitzna offered to leave Gaza in an orderly manner that would ensure a decent alternative to the Hamas, and my people rejected him at the ballot, only to have Sharon do it without coordination and have it end up like it has. How many more mistakes must we (both) make? How many more must die? Yeah, but we're so nice to give them enough water, electricity, and the measured amount of protein just to keep them alive — no more. I'm so proud of my leaders who are causing the suffering of all those in the south and sending my son into Gaza for more senseless battle. I don't know how our top "defense" leaders sleep at night. Excuse me while I get over my stomach ache.
