There is absolutely NOTHING stopping the President from doing just that.
Actually, as I stated in another thread...without a total wipe-out...we have no chance in either one....

hating your own country is wrong...
Hating your own government is your choice (at least it should be in a true democracy)

However, as Christians and muslims alike believe armagedon cannot take place without there being Jews in the land of Palestine. So as you can see we are in a catch 22.
Are you claiming that the Ottoman Empire is still the legitimate sovereign power in the region? That is who the British defeated to gain control over it.

You sir, are the victim of propaganda here. The State of Israel is as legitimate a state as any other nation in the world.

I like this argument. You say the state of israel is as legitimate a state as any other nation in the world. I would say as legitimate a state as america is. Or say the state of california is. How fortuitous that the europeans discovered the land of the americas. A so called discovered land that was already inhabited by the "red indians" and the incas. How you distort history my friend.

Could you name for me a nation where the current dominant ethnic group has always ruled?

Do you believe that the American Indian tribes that controlled areas at the time of the European settlement were the first tribes to settle the area or do you think they conquered it from another tribe? Do you doubt that the Inca and Aztec Empires were built on conquests of other peoples?

Why do you continue to make exaggerated statements that just confirm your ignorance of history?

Study the Battle of Okinawa and then come back and talk about how weak the Japanese were.

So its ok then to take over a country belonging to others and called it your own.

I like how you talk about european settlers and not ethnic cleansing. Remember how america had to be rid of the indian savages!
You say the american indians controlled areas of america. The majority of america as it stands today is unpopulated, how would your government react if someone powerful enough came in and "settled" (as you put it) on those unpopulated areas. Would your government call them settlers? I think not? Knowing George Dubya he'd probably call them "the wrongdoers", and then go on to anihilate them.

Nothing to study there...been there seen the ground zero...talked to my sales rep's parents... Going back there in a week...you want me to take some photos for you or get you any books?

Anyway, the history is clear...Germany was completely defeated. Italy chicken'd out in May of 1945. Japan against the whole World... Cowboy has the WMD. Cowboy orders them to do what we want. They did not. Cowboy kills 1/4 million in an instant then tells us the famous line -- this way we saved millions...

The sad story is that many people bought that line...which is a load of nonsense...

I guess he's completely OK if the settlers from Cuba simply decide to take south Florida away from the USA and call it lets say a Demcratic Republic of Cuba. I mean -- 80%+ of south florida does not speak or write in English, so what's the problem?

that's not the point. the fact of the matter is the most powerful wins, when whatever arab nations wants to try and take power away from israel....let them. which will never happen. i mean... honestly, who wins a 4+ front war.... they are obviously doing something right. they have the best airforce in the world, they train the best pilots in the USA. you have to understand, israel will never lose... because they CAN'T lose, the land is ALL they have... without that small little piece of land, they have nothing. the arabs have 100 other places to go. palestine? there is NO palestine.... there are no palestinians... i'm not here to give a history lesson but look at the geneology. palestinians are nothing more than displaced jordanians.

I did not say I am for Israel or for Palestine or Egypt or Syria... That thing over there is over my head...
All I said that "settlers" comment makes no sense because we have too many of those in this country and we all know what would happen...if they try what Albanians (for example) did in Serbia that the USA supported them.

So, yes, the most powerful wins, justice does not matter... that is why one day (sooner or later) we're all just going to kill each other...

i agree. i didn't say it was right. i said it's just a matter of fact and there is no sense in arguing because human nature is to expand and prosper, and with so many different definitions, and basis, of prosperity, there is sure to be clashes.

You're right, no need to learn any facts when you have anecdotes.

You are sad, I am embarrassed to say we scored the same on the LSAT.

Please get your facts straight. First, 250k is a little high, according to Wikipedia it's 214k. Second, those people did not die "in an instant" they died in two separate bombings days apart and then for years afterward from the radiation.

Also, as ganeil said, look at the Battle of Okinawa as a smaller scale example of what an invasion of the Japanese mainland would have been like. 140k civilians (no military deaths included in that number) died in that battle alone, the same as were killed by the first atomic bomb. Now imagine more battles like that and it's not hard to see that the bombs saved more lives than they took.
