    The changed political landscape in Egypt means Israel can't count on support it once had.

    JERUSALEM — Israel's surprise air assault on Gaza Strip militants killed the top military commander of Hamas and set the rivals on a familiar course that could end with another major confrontation — but in unpredictable new circumstances created by the "Arab Spring."

    I saw the video of them blowing up the car. If the car in the picture is the one they blew up, I'm surprised that much is left of it.

    The "Arab Spring" reminds me of that scene in Temple of Doom when the one big snake is dead on the table and they cut it open and hundreds of other snakes slither out of it...

    Are any of the places where regime change has occurred any friendlier to the US and its interests than the previous dictators? Seems like you've exchanged Gaddafi, Mubarek, Hussein, Mullah Omar who were evil fucks ,but at least knew their place more or less ,for a hardcore fundamentalist movement that is going to push things even further into the stone age and unite with their other fundamentalist brethren who've taken countries over.

    Oh no! No that's not the message at all! It's a good thing! Democracy for all!

    The cold fact is that these Muslim fanatic "people" are feral animals that have to be ruled with an absolute iron fist... and Obama's negligence has allowed this situation to explode to a level that has reached the highest levels of our own government.

    You think Petraeus' whore was an accident? Figure out her maiden name and background. The Brotherhood is everywhere.

    We wouldn't need to. Israel can defend itself. Don't be stupid.

    Iranians are technically Asians. They may play this wisely
