Thread Name: BS: Palestine
Subject: RE: BS: Palestine
There seems to be sufficient sophistry in bandying about the term "chemical weapons".
Since chemicals are used in weaponry, the fact that propagandists in favor of wartime
parsing is not material to this issue. Their definition of "chemical warfare" is based on spin favoring their use.

The US is not an honest broker of any peace deal here. Noam Chomsky suggests that a country like Brazil would be a better arbitrator. I agree with that.

I don't see unanimity on the part of Mudcatters on this issue of peace. I see that
there are those here who care about peace and justice in Palestine and others who are defending atrocities.

Whenever Mudcatters attempt to speak for the whole of the group, they do a disservice and cloud the issue.
