Actually I would call it a fraudulent slip, pun intended.

American pacified Egypt by way of the "Foreign Aid" teat. After invading Iraq, aren't we in effect doing the same thing to Iraq?

This map tell us that if Egypt goes Muslim, the America will have to live Iraq the same way it has let Vietnam, i.e., in a hurry.

I like to hear American, British and France diplomats are talking of having a democracy in Egypt. May be these colonial gangsters explain to us why are they still prefer dictatorial regimes to a democracy ones?

America must be pissed off by the Egyptian events since CIA may have to close its secret torture prisons there. What a fking pity!

Speaking of that, openmesh has a project up trying to get internet access back into Egypt.  They are looking for engineers who are interested in helping.    http://www.openmeshproject.org/

I think a lot of governments are probably getting really antsy here.  Some (our own) might decide it is better to be proactive in this regard.   It might not be a bad idea to start considering our own alternatives here.  I wish Tyler or one of the others would write an article about this.

Ok I think I figured out what those FoXcons are up too.

Iraq is left off the map entirely.  Iran is in the biggest FONT, front and center.

The establishment wants us to focusing on Iran.  Even though there is some difference between the countries, most Americans only know the one letter difference in the name.

Establishment concludes it shouldn't be to difficult to convince the people of another war, with the names of the countires being so close, just off by one letter, fuck most

Americans wont even notice when the Iraq war ends the Iran war starts.

Look for Fox to put more maps in the future of Iran front and center.

Spot on, but I do not think it will end there.

Egypt(I can spell it), hates the Shia, and Persians(Iran) hate the Sunnis.

Most all the territory there is occupied by Sunnis, I mean ALL of it.Iran is not nearly as strong militarily as Egypt,much less most of the others.

Iran wants the Nuke, to be able to wield the Sword............this cannot be allowed to happen.

It took 12 months because of a very extensive and detailed investigation. (911 Comission).

The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States aka the 9/11 Commission wasn't even formed until 443 days after 09-11-2001. It was, and remains, a national disgrace that it took that long to even begin the official cover-up. After previous state (USA) sponsored domestic terrorism events the cover-up began much sooner, usually just a few weeks to a few months after "the event".

Of course, that time lapse had nothing at all to do with the fact that IRAQ HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH 911.   The terrorists who flew those planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were Saudis and Egyptians funded by a Saudi CIA asset who was hiding out in Afghanistan.  The invasion of Iraq was an act of bullying aggression against an opponent who was quite blameless.  The charges against Iraq were, if you recall, a nuclear program which it was purported to still be pursuing.  Iraq claimed it was not and nothing was ever found in inspections prior to our invasion.  Colin Powell (shame on him) took some trumped up and long since proven falsified evidence to the United Nations.  Iraq was invaded on those grounds.  Any one who has even had a high school class in logic knows that while we could have proven Iraq had a nuclear program, if it had in fact existed, Iraq could never have proven that they did not have such a program.  It is not possible to prove a negative.  Ask Martin Armstrong.

Except Palestine *never* existed anytime in history... who founded it, name heroes, battles (against whom), kings and palaces, where are the ruins of the ancient cities? What was the currency and exchange rate to the neighbors? Actually, show me *one* ancient document by a neighbor kingdom (or whatever) where they register anything to do with the "Palestine".

Again, Palestine *never* existed anytime in history.

What was it then? Palestine was a regional administration created/denominated by the Roman Empire for their benefit. That's it. All the rest, what is sold today as displaced people that want their land back is bullshit.

Oh, yes, that is known as the "people without a land for a land without a people" gambit. Mendacious historical non-sense, as everything that ever exited the mouths of Zionists. Nothing but mendacity in the service of murder and theft. What do you have to claim that real estate, Zio Buddy, other than your fraudulent "biblical archeology" (not a single find recognized outside the Zio-entity), and the totally uncorroborated narratives of your own religious texts? Nada, niente, nichts, rien de rien.

The Zionist colonial project is doomed and won't last the next 10 years, nukes or not. And most Zionist cowards will rather flee than live in a secular democracy in Palestine as a minority in a binational state. At that moment, I wonder if they will also claim that "New Jersey has *never* existed anytime in history". I bet the displaced locals will beg to disagree.

Why, there was no Palestinian King, and they never claimed that to legitimate their title to the land. This narrative is entirely Zionist, and is entirely ficticious since there is absolutely no archeological proof or contemporary mention of David, Salomon, exodus, Babylonian Exile or of other petty jewish kingdoms in that area.

You may claim as much as you want that there was a "Israel" because YHWE told you so, that does not change the historical record.

Even the "barbaric" Persians had historical recordings (be it fictitious or not). What was the character set used by the Palestinians? There's not even painting in a rock to show...

---

I'm done with this discussion. If you bring us some ancient factual proof that Palestine existed I'll be glad to hear it.

This is the best you got? Oh, boy...

If not a king, what was the form of government the Palestinians had?

How was it stablished and how did it end? When? And with that, what calendar they used?

---

Come on people, these (and others above) are all simple historical questions. Every known civilizations that ever existed have at least some of them answered.

If you don't know just say "I don't know"! But why come up with stupid analogies or make up things on the spot to support a "Palestinian" lie making it even more obvious...

---

Let's make it different, bring up an important ancient fact about Palestine. I want to hear.

Hopefully Sec Gates gets the correct map before meeting the Jews.

That would suck if we envaded Iraq twice because of a bad map?

Maybe it was done on purpose to FoX listeners, so they could be shown this "hot bed" of trouble, so close to Isreal, and at the same time leave the countries we are still warring with off the map.

TV programming making new lows..

We are already over there so we might as well spread some more democracy.

Ever wonder why the herion crop has doubled/ trippled since our occupation?

I figured our troops would of set fire to those damn poppies, since we are already over there.  2 birds with 1 stone.

War on Drugs Commission outta call the military up and discuss how they might be able to combine the War on Bin Laden with the War on Drugs. Better efficientcy of our taz dollars you see.

Let me know if you find the answer to my question, thanks.

In the last couple of weeks/months there has been a slow but gradual use of "Jerusalem" as Israel's capital.  Things like, 'meanwhile Jerusalem nervously discusses the future of ...'

Also, there is a growing use of Israeli maps that show the West Bank and Jerusalem a contiguous part of the country.

Finally.

Israel is making their stand.  Jerusalem or bust.

See, mama, you understand that? (No)
Well, like, I don't understand how you can, because I got me uh,
You know, Paris, Peru, you know, I mean

I speak very, very um, fluent Spanish
Eh, todo esta bien chevere, you understand that? (Chevere?)
Chevere, bien chevere, is that right, mama?
I got my shaky room all over me

Everybody's got a thing
But some don't know how to handle it
Always reachin' out in vain
Accepting the things not worth having but

Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama
Cause I'll be standing on the side
When you check it out

Bad spelling.

They intended to write "I gypped!" as in I overpaid, or got ripped off, or ended up paying for both Rubin's pension and Dimon's bonus, and Geno-Ben's chance at 15 minutes to resolve everything, plus I lost my house, my job and my spouse.

"I gypped!" is synonymous with "Change you can believe in." Monetary value? About a quarter. Long term negative effects? Priceless.

Huh, that's amazing?  The Suez canal is only about 120 miles long.  Does that mean it's really a worm-hole or something else.
