What were the scores for the other countries in the area. Saudi Arabia is Israel's best friend in the area and they are as backwards as you can get. Is 53/110 really all that good of a score?

In the area, one they appear to have adopted Israel's hate for Iran and they support the faile overthrow of Syria, just like Israel. I could list some more if you need a longer list.

Nope- Iran is the number 1. And they are also headed for another Revelation. This one will be bloody, as the Iranian nut-bars will have no issue killing thousands upon thousands, along with more that disappear. Even the Shah knew he could not order that.
But Khamenei, who is not even regarded by his religious peers as having a right to the mantle of Ayatollah. Stole that like he has stolen billions.

Did you ask the Jews in Iran? (that refused to leave Iran)
Did Syria drop in their standing in the last 4 years in that the foreign fighters have a habit of executing women and children, old men, dogs, chickens, each other, ....?

Since Israel is the 'guardian' of Gaza and the West Bank it is easy to see they have both been totally excluded. Note complete lack of shock in me?

With us getting kicked out of Afghanistan we have some boys over there that have some free time. If Russian Special Forces can take over Crimea with less than 1,000 men (videl trained??) then we should be able to free Saudi with our battle hardened troops, waltz right in saying we need some sun and relaxation and the grab the oil stations and the banks and the harems, typical spoils of war. Catch the economy class and home for the play-offs.

With Canada and Russia being the powers around the Arctic we should partner up and become the sellers of fresh water in the form of iceberg quality where the turning over in salt water keeps it fresh and not subject to air-born particles. Rather than chainsaw the ice apart crack it and let it float away and the boat that harpoons it just bought the whole carcass.

The cold war was an arms race where not one shot was fired yet it cost (in total with the black books included) much dollars that could have been spent doing other stuff and we could still be broke but the roads wouldn't be. That set the place we want to avoid so a very expensive 'small war' is acceptable and that is what has been going on the last 20 years but with interest being what it is the bills are no longer being paid. For the same price, and probably a little cheaper We could trash North America after making a detailed map of the whole place and then ferry over all the critters in Africa that are too big to be pets so they don't die when all (except the caretakers) take the ferries back to Africa where many cities and roads and such will be built using 22nd century methods because that is cheaper than fixing a broken North America. Hoofed packet topsoil is great for growing grain and cattle as food for humans, don't repeat the mistakes in North America that have the topsoil blow away (windrows and never leave it unplanted). Same result as decimating the number of people that have access to the resources earth has, and it leaves a better taste in your mouth.

Remember the story of the Canadians that were protesting the culling of seal cubs and a northerner came through the St. Lawrence and 10,000 were swept out to the ocean? If they felt 'bad' about that why not get the channel authorities to install a breakwater or a pool that was wind fed down-wind so when swept off the front the current would take you around 'back where the water was calmer' and there they ride the storm out. If you can't stop the culling you can at least save some of the ones that die from other means. If you were to feed what seals eat so they grow faster then perhaps they would be worth more alive as they would clean up the schools of the weak and dieing. Lot of money and that would mean one war would have to not be fought so lean to accept that the pups will continue to die because there is no money available for programs like that even though the people would probably help for room & board.

Oh Yeah, back to the war, ......... almost war, .... back to the vote outcome instead, tic, tic, tic

JFK had the right idea, if you have to go into debt to survive there are other things people can do rather than fight wars, going to the moon cost as much as a 10 year war and almost nobody died and a lot of money was spent. The same thing could be done again that costs as much as a war and it has to keep everybody focused on one thing. Arctic fresh water is another such example, lot of money and a lot of people working so people in the tropics don't get diarrhea. (others just eat a tape worm and have it removed when they leave the tropics, the water goes good in drinks as a mixer as well.

The S-400 on Russian soil could defend all of Crimea so it is not a vital place in a war, as a hub for a lot of commerce, behind it is perfect for military maneuvers as is being able to completely close off the bay that is behind it. How many undetectable small subs could you station there that could target things as far away as the Canary Islands? How many detonations before that part of the Island that has a crack in it is 'helped' to fall into the Atlantic and a few hours later America experiences a devastating wave a few 100 ft tall?

I looked a bit before I could find an actual list and even then it was only the best and worst 25. How does the data promoted jive with something like the CIA World Fact Book? That makes the 'list somewhat in doubt when most of the numbers have no names beside it.

When are places like Bahrain and Saudi going to 'be fixed'. No wonder everybody is gun-shy of letting the US in to 'help'.

That sort of goes without saying. Better to be treated as an equal as something less than a camel

Probably the best country in the Middle East for not getting bombed by IDF jets as well.

.

First of all, Jews in Iran are not ALLOWED to leave.......that would mean the Iranians would miss out on the Great Jew Massacre predicted for the End Days.

Ahh...what does Syria have to do with it??

Don't think they wouldn't if they could get away with it because they would. There's nothing like an attack on ones own citizens to motivate against a fabricated enemy. They've been doing it for years buses pizza joints, shopping centers. Deception is the first word they learn.

They leave regularly on international flights. Who predicted this great massacre anyway?

You got me. You're absolutely right.

Israel has never bombed Gaza, the West bank or the Golan heights.
It's just those crafty Arabs trying to play the victim card by killing their own children and blaming the Jooooos.

This doesn't surprise me. You can't expect all these Muslime countries around Israel to rank higher than Israel on women's rights. We all know what Muslimes think about women's rights. Contrary to what the ludicrous racist Tecumsehbones and his racist pals have been saying on the other thread, it's not only evil Whitey Mann which treats women as inferior beings. The Muslimes are world champions at it.
