  • Do you agree that Obama was a great disappointment?

    Best answer: No. He was incompetent. He's now seeing how easily he could have been a very powerful president. He has to wake up everyday and see Trump fight more battles than Obama ever did and while doing so putting more people to work, generating more economic growth, creating record high tax receipts, and unprecedented economic growth as far as the eyes can see.

    I think Obama is very regretful that he spent 8 years using executive orders while doing everything to crush the American economy.

  • Why are some holocaust survivors not even as old as the holocaust itself?

    Best answer: One of the prerequisites for collecting reparations says that if you were a fetus at the time of the Holocaust, then you qualify. This, of course, goes against the claims of being led to gas chambers immediately upon arrival to that camps, since the mother would need to have survived at least nine months for the person to be born - and we're talking about the last days of the war when exterminations supposedly increased to "dispose of the evidence".

    There's another, less known fact about collecting reparations. If you earn too much money or have too many assets, you are ineligible. This means that if you're a rich survivor, you don't get compensated for your suffering. Too bad - it would be a shame to have suffered so much and made something of yourself afterward only to get cheated in the end.

    Thus, it appears that the reparations aren't for "surviving the Holocaust" - they're a retirement pension given only to those who went through it. It's a "club dividend".

    It should also be noted that reparations are paid even if you didn't "die in a gas chamber". They're called "Holocaust reparations" and yet, the word "Holocaust" is being defined as an all-inclusive event that goes beyond the original definition of "holocaust" where it originated. It's a tailor-made word created solely to draw sympathy and create a distraction from the truth.

  • Why did the USA not retaliate after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor?

    Best answer: If you mean why didn't the US immediately attach the Japanese homeland it was because the US did not have the forces to do that at the time. Remember the US was fighting the Japanese in the Philippines which the Japanese attacked on Dec.7 1941 the same day as Pearl Harbor.

  • Why was there no protest from other countries when Israel started to expand it's borders after it was established in 1948?

    Best answer: Those who lost the land on which they resided, were obviously upset. They had no say so. The Nazi perpetuated the holocaust, but it wasn't they whose land was given away!
    First war 1947-49. Israel calls it the war of independence.
    A historians account.

    Next war.
    1967 - the six day war, June 5th - June 10th. Syria, Jordan and Egypt versus Israel.
    Miko Peled's take on the 6 day war is not the U.S./ Israel spun version. His father was the General when Israel was founded in 1948.
    Syria, Jordan, and Egypt wanted there land back.
    The six day war was fought precisely for that reason. U.S. backed Israel. And USSR the Arabs. But a decision was taken not to participate in their proxies local battle, to avoid a direct confrontation between U.S. and USSR.
    Uncle Sammy claimed USS Liberty had been attacked by Egypt and so unlike the USSR, it found a pretext to help Israel defeat the Arabs. Even in 2018, those papers have not been made public! However the tape recording can NOW be heard by all.

    In the bigger scheme of things, the imperialist powers U.S.and Britain (it was their balfour agreement that caused the whole mess, same land promised to both the Jews, and the Arabs), saw Israel as their proxy in the region.

    The U.N. is ignored.
