    That danger is always looming and Israel made sure they all know it. Quietly.

    The toon is more accurate than all the hyperbole and hysteria aimed at Iran.

    Iran is the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism and provided IEDs and EFPs to militants trying to kill your son. Don’t you care about that?

    ^Israel attacked the U.S. S. Liberty, don’t YOU care about THAT?


    BTW, when our guys and gals in Iraq went to by something in those PX’s , those cameras, radios, and other items ALSO came from IRAN! (Just a little something the “hate Iran” crowd doesn’t know, or want to talk about.


    Which, all those nice “capitalists” were also “opening relations” with those countries while saying “we still hate them”, and munitions from those countries were landing on our folks in ’Nam. We were also exploring for oil in ’Nam, with our friends from France, even AFTER Saigon “fell”.


    Simply put: American “capitalists” don’t really care much about where, or from whom, the profits come to them.

    ^Which, noted my generic “anti-acid” medication bought at discount store, was made in Israel!

    First of all, your son was not on the USS Liberty in 1967.

    Second of all, the incident happened 3 1/2 years after JFK’s assassination. We just commemorated the 50th Anniversary of his death. I think it’s time you got over it.

    Third of all, both the Israeli and US Governments conducted individual inquiries of the incident and both concluded that the attack was a mistake due to Israeli confusion about the ship’s identity.

    Fourth, it happened during the Six Day War. Israel said they thought it was an Egyptian ship. They immediately apologized. In May 1968, the Israeli government paid US$3,323,500 (US$22.3 million in 2013) as full payment to the families of the 34 men killed in the attack. In March 1969, Israel paid a further $3,566,457 in compensation to the men who had been wounded. On 18 December 1980, it agreed to pay $6 million as settlement for the final U.S. bill of $17,132,709 for material damage to the Liberty herself plus 13 years’ interest.

    So stop using the USS Liberty incident as an excuse for your hatred of Israel and as justification of your view that Israel is not an ally.

    And fifth, I still don’t see how the fact that your son could have bought a radio in the PX that said “made in Iran”, or that you’ve bought generic antacids that were made in Israel has anything at all to do with Iran supplying IEDs and EFPs to militants trying to blow him up. Its akin to a WWII vet saying "Sure, the Germans were shooting at us, but we ate some terrific strudel at a cafe. It doesn’t matter. On the contrary, Iran’s blatant involvement in trying to kill our troops is just an annoying little fact that you and the “Iran is a misunderstood nation” crowd doesn’t know, or want to talk about.

    ^BULL S***, the LIberty was attacked, repeatedly, and after Israel was told to “back off”, period. I was in ‘Nam at the time, around other people’s IEDs, so I"m very familiar with them.


    Iran manufactures MANY PRODUCTS, and the sanctions are hurting more than just sale of oil.


    The fact that we import both drugs, and weapons technology says they’ve increased their “product line” from just weapons related products in recent years.

    ^The last was of course Israel, which considering the long history of Israeli Defense Industries, and most production being state owned until very recently, Israel IS one of the MOST “communist” or “socialist” nations on the planet, as in say “kibbutz”.

    Hezbollah yes, but Al-Qaeda and Syria’s Al-Nusra, being of the Sunni branch, are enemies of Iran.

    I expect many tribute cartoons in the next few hours and not just within the Views Africa section.
    (oh please, none with the Pearly Gates? Or am I hoping in vain?)


    So long Madiba, thanks for the fish.

    I’m on record for saying Desmond Tutu being the only cleric I have profound admiration for. Love Tutu as well.

    Israel had to take that danger out once before!

    And it is also a danger for the U S! Don’t suppose Obama and Jon Carry are willing to do anything about it.

    They are Peace in our time—ers!

    What dangerous idiots.

    Wiping out Israel and U S Infidels is their religious duty.
