With the recent upswing of violence in the middle east, many people have been caught off guard. Israelis have been shocked by an unexpected show of power from Hezbollah militants, while the Lebanese have been displaced by huge, sudden waves of violence as the two factions war in the midst of their daily lives.
However, I think we can all agree that those who suffer the most in this type of conflict, regardless of time and place, are the ideologues who did not properly prepare their talking points before hand. As they are left behind in the dust by those who forsaw, or who at least prepared for, this level of violence, I think it is time we step up to the plate and help them in their time of need.
To use one of the pre-approved talking points below, you simply need to identify a discussion, argument, news posting, or endless rehash of the current situation. Once this is accomplished, you can merely copy and paste your position into the next open discussion slot and assure yourself of your supreme victory in the face of more than a half century of diplomatic and military failure.
To begin, simply choose the appropriate ideology below, and go wild (see below for a list of reccommended discussion forums in which these can be most appropriately applied):
The fact of the matter is that Zionist occupation of free Arab lands has led to a struggle in which aggressive Western powers have backed an occupying force, and Arab fighters have resorted to the only valid, useable tactics they have to defend their lands.
If it were not for European imperialism in the pre-World War II middle eastern theatre, we would not have an Israeli state and the current struggle for dominion over land rights in the region. If it were not for current American imperialism, the West would not be as embroiled in the conflict as it is now, and a resolution could be had.
Although Zionism has compromised some core values of traditional Judaism, this is not justification for the long-standing guerilla war against innocent civilians in the land of Israel. Terrorism is never a valid means to obtain a particular end, and that some Arab elements have so fully embraced it justifies the costs of war.
Though the Israelis must again respond with a measured hand, their very lives depend on the success of their deployment into Lebanese territory. The costs of war can sometimes be great, but as in any war, each side must fend for itself and hold defense of its homeland as the prime objective. Any reasonable military will then make aiding the innocent casualties of that war a secondary objective, and must be allowed to undertake these compassionate actions of their own will and good conscience.
HAAAAA HAAHAHAHAHAA! BURN THEIR VILLAGES TO THE GROUND! ROAST THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN THEIR SLEEP, SMASH THE ORPHANAGES, AND UPROOT AND SALT THE EARTH! THE ONLY SALVATION TO BE HAD IS FOR THE GLORIOUS ISRAELI HOLY WARRIORS TO DESTROY THE LANDS OF AGGRESSION AND BUTCHER THE ENEMIES OF WHITENESS IN THEIR HOMES! REPENT SINNERS FOR THE WEST HAS COME TO FREE YOU OF THE OPPRESSION OF LIFE AND RELEIVE YOUR OF THE BURDONESOME TOIL OF YOUR VERY EXISTANCE! MWAAAA HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA!
Reccommended Posting Locations
Generally speaking, it is a good idea to avoid areas that may attract so-called "experts" who may demand they know better than you because they have spent years or decades "studying" or even "living" the trouble you are so cleanly resolving with your insight and tact. Areas where you are likely to never encounter anyone with any knowledge or experience of the issue are scattered all over the web, but prime locations include sites such as Little Green Footballs, Free Republic, Powerline Blog, Daily KOS, Democratic Underground, and random forums that allow for boards involving politics or "open" discussions.
Above all, remember that you are supremely blessed with insight into this issue because you are posting on the Internet, and don't ever let anybody tell you otherwise.
