Surprise Israel Has Nukes!

Who was denying this?

Oh right, the same people who denied using chemical weapons in Lebanon last summer.

**edit** Silly me, I should add that I am referring to white phosphorus, which although is a chemical that burns people, and can be fatal, it is not considered a chemical weapon.

Either way, the IDF denied using it until it was caught. **end edit**

When the Israeli Army decides to tell the truth for change, then THAT will be news.

Until then, they only make their lives more difficult in gaining sympathy for their cause.

Like Denis Coderre, you need to take a more balanced and helpful position on Israel, right now, you only alienate people, which accomplishes nothing.

Saying white phosphorous is a chemical weapon is like saying anything that has chemicals in it is a chemical weapon. It just isn't true.

But thats beside the point, thats an argument for 6 months ago.

Israel has a nukes. Who cares? It doesn't change the strategic balance in the region at all since everyone assumed they did anyways.

Now if they came out and said they never did have nuclear weapons, and allowed the IAEA in that would be news...

this argument is presently being used in Israel anybody but iggy.

It is being used by concerned Israelis over there as well.

In israel there is nobody calling people anti-semitic for criticizing Defense policy.

THAT is a vibrant democracy.

Never called you anti-Israel, or anti-Semitic.
I just think that you have bought into Coderre's blind line, and will accomplish about as much as he did.

How is this a surprise?

The IAEA has stated outright that it believes Israel "to be a state possessing nuclear weapons"

antonio, if you're going to criticize the israeli army for whatever you fancy, why don't you take an EVEN hand on the subject and criticize other armies around the world that have A LOT more blood on their hands... oh i don't know, north korea, burma, iran, zimbabwe, etc.

your bias is disturbing to say the least... when's the last time you talked about one of those countries?

you're starting to sound like one of those left-wing fanatics that blames the US and Israel for all of the world's woes

I suggest you scroll down through the archives and see how many times I refer to Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

I sympathize to the Israeli cause. My point is little hiccups like this do not help the cause,but damage it.

Everyone knows that Israel has nuclear capability. This isn't news.

P.S. Could you plaese encourage Mr. Coderre to quit the Liberal caucus as he promised to do if Igs didn't win. It would make the world a better place.

Denis Coderre is a valuable member of the Liberal caucus. He never said he would leave if Michael didn't succeed.

We need Denis more than ever now that we have a leader that really has problems connecting with the average Quebecer.

Long life to Denis Coderre !

Id say i am (or i was) an average quebecer, and dion has no problems "connecting" with me.

I think stating the rules of the game AND reconciliation can work. But the question shouldnt be "whats canada done for me lately". It should be "what can i do for canada".

Coderre didn't do himself or the Party any favours when he was quoted by the media as not worrying about Dion as leader as Coderre has an MBA.
Thankfully, Denis now wants to work with Stephane to rebuild the Liberal Party in Quebec. I say, give the guy a shot.
Even if he does not have good intentions one should keep one's friends close and one's enemies closer. We don't need another Martin-izing.

Denis Coderre is hated by the Liberal Caucus because he is a bully. He needs to go. i haven't even mentioned antisemite, but he's that too. For the good of the PArty I hope he keeps his word and he did say he was going to quit. We can only hope.

He will be completely neutred now anyways, as the rest of caucus have had quite enough of him and his tactics and the Dion people aren't exacly amused. Oh yeah his tactics helped Iggy lose so I'm sure David Smith isn't real amused with him right now either. It would be best for him if he left.

He's the Karygiannis of Quebec. No one wants to go near him, hence no power or influence, which is all they are interested in. They should both quit.

Which less than reputable school gave Dennis his MBA?

Denis got his MBA from the University of Ottawa. He should stay and is a valuable member of our team.

Denis is very good in QP and in attacking the Tories on different issues.

Denis connects with the average Quebecer. The guy that reads the Journal de Montreal. I've worked with Denis and whenever he's in a public place, people are happy to see him and have a chat with him.

Stephane needs to use him as much as he can in Quebec. He's a hardworking guy.

I'll be happier if he makes Pablo Rodriguez the lieutenant.

Pablo is a fresh (enough compared to the other guys) face and in not interested in stirring problems. He will get his views across and will work together towards a common goal...saving our asses in the next election in Quebec
