Privacy, Security, Encryption "Mr. Obama decided to accelerate the attacks - begun in the Bush administration and code-named Olympic Games - even after an element of the program accidentally became public in the summer of 2010 because of a programming error that allowed it to escape Iran's Natanz plant and sent it around the world on the Internet. Computer security experts who began studying the worm, which had been developed by the United States and Israel, gave it a name: Stuxnet." And we're letting these people have unmanned drones. Seems legit.

Another good example of hypocrisy. By denying one side's right to defend itself, you definitely support other side.

I'm going to walk straight up to your house, backed by the biggest military in the world, and claim that, based on an old book thousands od years old, your house and land are supposed to belong to me. Then I'm going to remove you from your own premises, and force you to live a life with less rights than people of my own blood.

Let's see how you react then.

Both sides in this conflict are wrong, because none of them are right. If it were up to me, we'd stop all financial, military, and material aid to the entirety of the region, cut all diplomatic ties, and let them sort out their own mess. Not a single dime of my tax money should go to those shitholes. I want Dutch money to go to people who deserve it - not to governments who only car about war, death, and destruction, no matter what imaginary father figure they claim is on their side. Israel, Iran, whatever - they're all the same to me.

Not to defend or support any side, but what did the americans (english people in a sort of way) do with natives? They conquered, took their lands, raped their women and here they are. The Spanish did the same, and so did others like greeks and persians. What has ever changed?

Hi,

It is very frustrating to read comments as though both sides are at fault, there must be at least one side to contributed more faults than other or else the other side will not hire a big army to defend her people.

Case point of Israel.

Modern Israel was created in 1948. Instant war followed, 100% of Arab nations attack Israel, by using a SIMPLE A VERY SIMPLE LOGIC here, what can you expect from ISRAEL? Give up and go back to Germany and Russia?
DO NOT complicate Israel's case, the U.S. has nothing to do with this, except that it was helping Israel for their own interests(out of compassion is another thing), and Israel allowing outside help to protect their citizens and rights.

This is soooooo common sense.
