...is hell, as they say. It doesn't just affect the militaries of the countries involved. Why is this so shocking?

I really hope these trips are on your own dime and that you are burning your own vacation time while out of the country touring the world!

We're lucky to have someone like Ellison, who has the guts to go out there and inspect the results of U.S. policy on the ground...

In the related picture, Rep. Ellison appears to be using a Flip Mino, maybe even the HD. So he's not really taking a picture but a movie. However, it does show he's up on the latest technology. Much more sophisticated that what Rep. Baird is using.

...interesting comment coming from a faithful moslem. The hadith in the quran certainly is unequivocal about placing blame.

Try telling the savages to quit launching missiles into Israel. Israel will be happy to let them live in medieval squalor.

Ellison should have been there in Sderot to witness the constant rocket attacks. If Hamas had the means, all of Israel would look worse than Gaza in one day. Saying that the destruction is "hard to understand" is rediculous and deceptive. Islamic militants have been instigating violence in this region since the 1920's. Israel saved many Lebanese christians from genocide by the same ideology that instigated Israel's decisive actions. What is so hard to understand? Arab Islamists are comitting genocide and sex slavery in Sudan, can you "understand" that? Mr. Ellisonx

Israel attacks Palistine. Iran attacks Israel. The U.S. attacks Iran. China and Russia attack the U.S. so they don't lose trillions in oil. I'd say this could effect South Mineapolis in the long run.
