    The irony is that Israel also has a party in power that used to be right-wing and is increasingly becoming more extremist. People who support Israel but who are critical of the Trump regime may find it awkward to demonstrate consistency.

    My post, by no means, was intended to demonstrate any sort of support for Israel. Instead I was talking about the Jewish demographic in the US who are a minority themselves...and they will always champion the rights of minorities as means of self preservation. Cuz the alternative is Confederacy. And they are most able in this area compared to any other minority group. Their downfall however is their support for Israel and the endless imperial wars....costing them (almost) the Presidency since Kennedy.

    Bro, this part l do not understand from the preceeding context.

    We hear the populist chants, that justify xenophobia & baby jails, where the Chinese are accused of thievery in trade and immigrants thievery in jobs. Both are not accurate. If China was stealing in trade then US should have been worse off for it cuz it was being stolen from. right? But if you look at the books of the American giants from Walmart to Apple you'd see that they are getting richer and richer. The reason for the downfall of the American middle class is the broken American system where redistribution of wealth is highly in favour of the rich...through tax cuts by the likes of Trump...while blaming immigrants for the hardships imposed on the middle class....and the stupid middle class dancing to his racist & inhumane tunes. You want a good middle class? Tax the rich....dont give them billions.

    @Wahdat  The academic demands of a modern economy far exceed those of 19th and 20th Centuries. They don't speak English, either.

    And as l wrote before, we have another 1 1/2 million high school drop outs every year that for the most part cannot get jobs.

    Productivity is productivity in every era. A rich investor or educated immigrant would be far more positive for the economy now and it were the case back then. For your 1 1/2 million high school drop outs I have a fantastic idea....take 1 % of the money that your country spends on overrunning borders of other countries like Syria and invest it in skill building programs. 
    The root of the current problem, be it in America or elsewhere, is very American- its America's broken system. Migrants are poor and convenient excuse.

    Uhty, the illegal entries surging across our borders have at best 6th grade educations.

    Other than working for Tyson (used as example) what are going to do? They cannot support themselves.

    Illegal entries have, for the most part, had no to '6h grade' education and yet they made things work and made America great. General Kelly's great grandfather was a wagon driver and grandmother illiterate. Throughout America's short history people have come to US to seek a better life- the rich and the educated have always been comfy where ever they are. Its these mass of the poor, the under privileged, and the uneducated that have made America great.

    America and Americans should ONLY talk about their borders the day they recognize other countries' borders. They cant rob countries, crash economies, and disregard every rule and law under the sun and yet expect others to respect its borders.

    Any insights from people who have lived in these places? Would you say this list is generally accurate? 

    Hard to say if its accurate. For example, a woman could easily get harassed in public all over India while in their private spheres they are secure; in Afghanistan public harassment is very rare for women who adhere to social conventions but the violence and abuse we hear about mostly occur in private spheres...40 years of war is bound to wear people down psychologically.  So a woman can be insecure in public all over India, violence and abuse against women does not occur all over Afghanistan. 

    In case of Afghanistan a big majority of violence occur in Sunni communities. Shia women are far more educated, aware, involved in public life, independent, and intellectually more secure. 

  6. These little low class KKK nutcases could have their field day chanting 'Blood & Soil' in Charlottesville or snatch babies from parents at the border, but the Jewish organizations will, slowly but surely, make David Dukes out of them all in no time....Thank God for the American Jews, otherwise God knows what these uneducated impotent lot would do on their stupid way of 'making America great again'.

    The mass always criticizes those that are in power and the Jews hold the power n today's world....instead the mass should also learn to look at the alternative...so that we wont get KKK in US or ISIS in ME.

    A prison cell is closer to a "cage" than these more opened chain-linked fence areas.

    Like I said, to a clear view, these baby jails are INDEFENSIBLE.

    Those that justify such horror on the illegal nature of the asylum process, should also create cages for American politicians and businessmen who also illegally bring down entire states and govts prompting these poor individuals to leave their entire lives and come seek mercy from the likes of Trump.

    To draw a pic for you

    l was listening today to that on-the-radio-'nut' Sean Hannity -- alternating with whiney NPR .

    He used a phrase l never heard before: "l will not be guilted into anything."  Meaning someone trying to cast a sense of guilt into you so you change or act.

    "Guilted" is an anthimeria, here verbing a noun.

    He was arguing against "liberal tactics".

    Folks wont be guilted into diverging from basic tenets of humanity today for they are too drunk with their civil war, just like the Nazis were not guilted into things when they did similar things, but once this intoxication wears off there will be nothing but shame & guilt for acting like the Hitler Youth.

    Thanks. 

    Politicians are evil, every one of them. Power always corrupts, at least always when humans are involved. 

    I have four children. My three year old doesn't talk. I cant imagine what would happen to him if he were put in a warehouse in the care of other children, especially with him not able to communicate his needs. I can't imagine what circumstances must exist in their homelands that these people are willing to risk everything for a chance at escape. Those people could be me, could be you, could be any one of us, but for fortunate birth. 

    I'll never understand dehumanization of our brothers and sisters in humanity. If I ever do understand, I will die of sadness or madness. I don't want to understand, it's too awful. 

    Unfortunately, those poor children have become the collateral damage in this American civil war between the globalists camp led by AIPAC, the so called Liberals, and Neocons; and the nationalist camp represented by the Donald and the disgruntled middle class White America that does not see a global America in their interests....like almost everything in our world today, the very nature and origin of this crisis is very American....this super american materialistic way of life that makes for such ugliness. Its not the fault of the politicians at all but that of the public that bid on the loudest & most shameless politicians.

    Everybody on SC take this the right way.

    l have read far more 'defense arguments' for illegal entries and their brats flooding into our country here on SC  than l ever did for the defense of lSlL attacked children in lraq and Syria; or those kidnapped and worse of children during the Amerikan lnvasion of lraq and Afghanistan; or during the refugee migration into Europe; or the new 'boat people' in the Mediterranean; or the Rohynga and Kochin in Myanmar; or Gujjarat and Kashmir; the refugee camps in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey; and so on.

    Am l missing something here?

    Repeal the Asylum law.

    nationalism, like alcohol, makes a drunk out of anyone that consumes it..regardless of race, gender, religion, or level of intellect. you are trying to justify a wrong, an Israeli MO, by comparing US to ISIS or Gujrat or...

    It is wrong, it is disgraceful, it is inhuman, and more broadly its just plain ugly to defend the birth of Baby Jails. It simply is indefensible. You want to fix 'your country's' immigration system? All the power to you...snatching babies and throwing them into concentration camps is the wrong way to go about it.

    I'm flabbergasted. While discussing the separation of families for internment due to undocumented border crossing, an elderly relative of mine just announced that she's certain it's all Bill Clinton's fault. I don't know what to say, so I just said nothing at all. 

    Your relative may very well have a point- It was Bill Clinton who injected globalization with steroids- empowering multinational corporations while weakening national govts & identities....creating a condition such as now where national govts have become so colourless & impotent that they no longer can provide for their citizens (cuz they have to provide for multinationals) and forcing ordinary people to hit the road in search of areas where govts can and do provide.

    Russia simply wants Assad to be their guy, while Iran wants Assad to be part of an anti-Israeli axis. Russia doesn't care about Iranian-Israeli animosity, but it doesn't want this animisity to hinder its interests.

    You mentioned Russia's interests, Iran's interests, but not Syria's interests.

    The Jewish lobby in Russia is very strong just as its counterpart in the US- AIPAC. But they are no existent in Iran.

    We saw recently how the little carrot of thawing relations with West (Putin-Trump summit and EU convergence with Russia) Russia made concession to Israel....so if you are a Syrian policy maker- who would you chose as an ally? Iran which has stood by it through thick and thin and would never sell Syria out...or Russia who could trade Syria any minute as part of a so called grand deal with the US? Seeing the cartoonish political psyche of most Arabs who are often attracted to big guns, I am sure you'd pick Russia...and this upside down logic that is the norm in the Arab world has them where they are today- occupied.

    No, they said two things. They said they will not participate in the Southern Offensive, and they should leave Syria all together sooner or later.

    In regards to Syria, the only words that should be important on such matters is that of the Syrian govt. When Iran does not let US or Israel dictate policies for it, I doubt they'd let Russia do it...Without Iran's contribution Russia's Syria campaign would not have been half as successful as it is today. I believe the reason for such statements are solely political (coughPutinTrumpSummitcough) and bares no weight on the ground....a psy op.

    Saddam believed in Arab nationalism which is a joke. I would argue that people here care more about "Arab issues" than me despite not being Arabs, as they care about the fate of Hamas and IJ in Gaza which I could care less about.

    The fate of the Shi'a worldwide and Iraq as my homeland matter to me much more than Hamas ever will.

    Saddam was wrong in believing in Arab nationalism. You are wrong in believing (even if you dont know it) in Iraqi nationalism....they are both one and the same just like good terrorists and bad terrorists. Believing in nationalism makes you feel entitled- case in point- you expecting Turkey to not develop its economy and instead give its water for free to Iraq, while Iraq sells its oil to Turkey at market price....see the double std? This is why states are stupid and contaminate their people with stupidity. A fairer and more logical set up would be for Turkey to give its water to develop Iraq, and Iraq in return give its oil to develop Turkey...both free. no?

    Kurds are part of Iraq, we don't stand against them. Barzani Kurds are unfortunately Turkish sympathisers, and sadly it is their own trust in Erdogan which has gotten them to this stage, where he blackmails them with water.

    They have a choice in standing with Iraq as Iraqis or they will suffer Erdogan's policies.

    You with your little funny nationalism is akin to Saddam and his little toy army....you both are/were robbed of common sense and reality....

    Recently Iraq has accused both Iran and Turkey of applying policies which are drying up the Tigris river, and causing drought.

    Now I don't want to hear anyone say "this topic will divide the ummah" or such nonsense, these issues are public and are supposed to be discussed because they endanger lives. This is not me saying it, this is Iraq's Water Minister who said publicly that these two countries are drying Iraq up.

    So why are Iran and Turkey employing these policies? And what can Iraq do about it?

    First Saddam attacks Iran...then ISIS...and now Sumerian nationalism...

    jokes aside, since water is becoming more valuable than oil or it is the new oil, its interesting to see how Kurds could become the future Saudi Arabia and how Turkey, Iraq, and Iran are all standing against it.
    Turkey has, by the virtue of its location, the key to the development of both Syria and Iraq.

    Assad's father turned his weapons on Iraq in 1991. He will never gain the respect of the Iraqis, as he sided with the Americans against Iraq. 

    Another "resistance" figure who had deals with Americans and Gulf States when it helped him.

    Were you born, or have relations, with Kufa?

    Syria is bad for siding against Saddam....I guess that leaves today's ISIS as true patriotic citizens of that cartoon country for they were the ONLY ones that fought for Saddam.

    I don't think that can ever happen. 

    Let me tell you how Iraq is ALREADY being used to 'contain' or push back or force Iran...

    1- there are 100K American troops and contractors stationed in Iraq. In the event of a war, those soldiers will not sit in their barracks and watch sponge bob.

    2- ISIS was created less because of Iraq, for Iraq does not matter for it is already occupied, but because of Iran and Iran's influence.

    3- There are many Western agents embedded within PJAK- training and fighting along with them in North Eastern Iraq with the sole purpose of wreaking havoc in Iran.

    4- The newly liberated Kurdistan was supposed to be to Iran what South Lebanon is to Israel  before Iran killed the whole thing.

    5- All terrorist activities in North Western Iran that you never hear about on mainstream media comes from Iraqi Kurdistan.

    Surprisingly enough....no such things are happening from Afghanistan side despite it being another cartoon country as well. Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan also do not export harm to Iran despite them secular and not close to Iran....and that is why you never see Iranian military present in those countries.

    and im sure @Wahdat meant iraq as a govt. and not the people.. although many of them just like lebanese are against Iran

    Thanks for clarification...but to go a step further I mean the very idea of a state. because the states are created by Europe to divide the world and conquer the world. Thats why Lebanon was, for example, given to the French or how the British got Iraq. People fight one another over these states where one becomes a proud Iraqi while the other a brave turk or moderate saudi...these states have brought nothing but mass suffering to the people of the region. I know that its not easy to do without them...but we could at least start by not glorifying them...for these states are the real causes of all evil- Saddam, Taliban, IS etc are merely its agents.
