1. Ms. Rice, I think I have the solution
RobertK ,   Jerusalem   (09.14.07)
Hand over Judea and Samaria to the Fatah terror gang and open a safe corridor through Israel to Gaza so that Fatah can have maximum cooperation with the Hamas, Hizbullah, Islamic Jihad, and Al Qaeda terror gangs. Hand over the Golan Heights to Syria so they can position the nukes closer to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv from militarily unassailable positions. Call it a peace process, and found a new academic journal and a museum to commemorate and analyze the Second Holocaust.
2. Condi's Betrayal!!
Harry ,   Kansas   (09.14.07)
"We have to have policies that prevent the world's most dangerous people from having the world's most dangerous weapons." Haven't Syria and Iran signed the NPT??? Ohhhhh she must be talking about Israel?!
3. Teddy Roosevelt Said ....
Terry ,   Eilat, Israel   (09.14.07)
"Speak softly & carry a big stick". Ms Rice talks a lot but seems to have mis-placed the stick.
4. War!
The infantryman ,   Israel   (09.14.07)
We must prevent Syria getting nukes because it supports on terrorism against the free world. The syrian regime today lost his ideology, Syria is just a pipe to spreading Iranians ambitions, for example: rearming Hizbulla. I don't see another option except war, the reason for that is very simple, even if we eventually achieve a peace with syria, we still will be threatened by Iran, the syriain-iranian axis is an integral to syrian regime, we can't count on this regime. The war is approaching, and I'm ready to eradicate the axis of evil.
5. The most dangerous people already have nukes
Johannes ,   Berlin, Germany   (09.14.07)
First of all, it is neither Iran nor Syria that brought nukes to the Middle East – it’s Israel. It is a very natural phenomenon that if one side has nukes the opponent tries to achieve the same. Secondly, there is no proof whatsoever that Syria is developing nukes. It rather looks like the U.S. is preparing another war. I am very surprised indeed that they expect anybody to believe them after they screwed over the whole world with their lies about Iraq. Iraq was not exactly an ideal place in terms of human rights and democracy under Saddam Hussein, however, it did not pose a threat to anyone. Furthermore, Saddam Hussein was a strong opponent of Bin Laden, there were no terrorist activities in Iraq under Saddam. After the U.S. tried to turn Iraq into a democracy by bombing the shit out of it, Iraq is a quagmire, a failed state on the edge of an all out civil war. Terrorism breeds very successfully over there and the people wish Saddam’s terrible regime back. Well done, George W. Now George W. obviously decided, that its time to bring peace, freedom and democracy to other countries in the Middle East. If he will be as successful with Syria and Iran as he is with Iraq he will turn the whole Middle East into a hell. I am wondering which people is dangerous…..I’d rather go for the American.
6. Funny. It's Iran and Syria who are the threats but
Canadian Otter   (09.14.07)
it's Israel that is forced to give up territory, including half of its nation's capital. Meanwhile, Palestinians, whose political landscape is composed of representatives of every warmonger and terrorist in the Middle East, and who continue to wage terror attacks against Israel, get rewarded with a brand new terror state, weapons, and a never ending money supply. Bush logic at its best. The US cannot have it both ways. If it wants Israel's cooperation fighting the bad guys in the Middle East, it must stop bullying and disrespecting its only true ally in the region.
7. Media Blitz
Marcel ,   Florida   (09.14.07)
The government media complex of Israel is preparing the ground for Condi's visit to Israel next week. Good P.R. is needed to offset the knife in the back she is to deliver to Israel. YNET prepares the way with a sweet story on Israel's betrayer secretary. They have to deliver a Palestinian state to their Arab allies soon,and Israel is easily sacrificed because the people of Israel are gulliable,and niave. The sheep of Israel will be required to leaver their homes and land in Judea and Samaria for the fake peace agenda of her Boss ,the Wolf,also known a dubya.

Hilda ,   US   (09.14.07)
Robert, you may consider this satire, however, you are dealing with anti-semitic Rice and ditto State Dept. I'm not sure you are that far off.
10. Johanas in Berlin
Hilda   (09.14.07)
Sig Heil right Johnny Boy. Tell us what damage has Israel ever done with Nucleur bomb, if she has it. ?
11. #4...that was clintoon logic as well
Jeff Pettibone ,   NYC, USA   (09.14.07)
when I ask for further squealings from the insignificance to the north I'll let you know
12. #5 - "The most dangerous people....."
Andy ,   ramat hasharon   (09.14.07)
That's funny - a person from Germany calling others the most dangerous people, forgetting the entire last century when your people brought the entire world to deadly wars twice. You call Americans the most dangerous when they saved everybody else from you goose-stepping maniacs.
13. #2 Ahmed...I mean Harry from Kansas...
DR ,   Florida, USA   (09.14.07)
90% of Americans understand that Iran and Syria are a major threat to the stability of the Middle East.They also understand that these two coutries support terror and are killing(whether directly or indirectly) our troops in Iraq along with innocent women and children. All this being said, you still remain in that silly 10% which denies reality and points fingers at Israel even when the article has nothing to do with them. You are a pathetic person to say the least!!!
14. #5, where do you get your info?
DR ,   Florida, USA   (09.14.07)
First of all, I trust Israeli and American inteligence a lot more tha I trust some left wing, neo-nazi, nut-jobnamed Johannes. As for you ridiculous claims about Saddam and terror. 1. Saddam paid the families of suicide bombers who killed Israelis. 2. Saddam's Iraq was a sanctuary for Al-qeida terrorists as well as Hezballah, Hamas, etc. He not only supported terror, he funed it as well. 3. Iraq invaded Kuwait in the 1st Gulf War, but you're right, they were no threat to anyone. 4. We know that Iran and Syria support terror, but you still think that Israel is more dangerous??? I don't know how people like you get so deluded, but I am guessing that your innate hatred for Israel and the US blurrs your judgement just a little bit.
15. to #9
RobertK ,   Jerusalem   (09.14.07)
No, I don't consider it satire. At this time of grave threats in the Middle East, Rice is leading a push (Bush being ultimately responsible, of course) to send Israel back to indefensible borders and replace its presence with a terrorist army free to import any weapons it wants and direct them at Israel's population centers. I would not want to be Bush, Rice, Olmert, or Livni when the Day of Reckoning comes, if there is such a thing. I hope there is a power that will punish them.
16. #12 i don't see how ...
Mark ,   NJ USA   (09.14.07)
your argument responds to #5. he has nothing to do with hitler did and what he is telling is totally right. you think you can attack an unrelated subject to discredit his argument. you are pathetic!
17. # 5 Your words are clear like SUN
Sajjad ,   Karachi Pakistan   (09.14.07)
What you have mentioned is clear as the sun but hypocrites have put curtains over their eyes to deny the Truth. It is nothing more than inner evil that supports Bush’s agenda to murder and displace millions of people. I don’t think there is any religion which supports such kind of madness but only greediness either by Muslim leaders or Jewish masses. For Jews please read the statement of the Supreme leader” Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei” who said we don’t need Nuclear weapons, it is not in our religion to acquire such weapons. Now it is up to you people to believe in our supreme leader who never lie or supports people like Bush despite the fact he is leading the world.
18. Rice comment working with allies
Hilda ,   US   (09.14.07)
Sure she is She's egging Israel on to do the dirty work. She would also not be angry if Israel decided to take on Iran---ALONE . She has no compunctions about dead Israelis. This is shown by her every action re Palestinian Arabs whom she knows full well are out for the destruction of Israel be they Fatah or Hamas. The name is different. The desire is the same.

M. Hartley ,   Atlanta, US   (09.14.07)
Still haven't gotten over losing two wars, huh? If it hadn't been for the US, you'd be speaking Russian instead of German.
20. #5 Johannes in Berlin
Suncountry ,   U.S.   (09.14.07)
This post sounds like a parody, a comedy routine from Saturday Night Live. Johannes writes his parody in comfort and safety that the U.S. and U.K. provided to him by fighting the Nazis and the Communists. I bet he just hates that. Now when others need the same type of backbone against the radical Islamists in the Middle East, this coddled German man can't stand it. Iraq needs time to get on their feet, but they do have a break from their former government's persistent mass graves. And heaven forbid that Jews create and achieve in their own country. Johannes you're a mean man to wish the continuation of mass graves on Iraq when you are living the benefit of help Germany got to get out from under... shame.
21. #9 Hilda
Marcel ,   Florida   (09.14.07)
You forgot about her boss and Olmert's boss who pulls the strings. You know, the COMMANDER IN CHIEF,Mr.Divider of Israel for his Palestinian state. Are you blind,forgetful or too dumbed down to see that it is the Bush agenda which is destroying Israel ? it's easy to bark at the state dept ,but it takes courage to face the devil himself. You and so many don't seem to have it ,being stuck on your lie,your delusion that George is good for Israel What is wrong with you people ? Is it taboo in Israel to speak ill of your god george and so Condi is as close as you will venture ?
22. Most dangerous people/ GERMANS!
Petra ,   usa   (09.14.07)
You've got a short memory, Fritz! Germany started WMD and missles we got some, ( but not all of your rocket scientists after WW11) So far, (except for Japan and ending WW11)neither the USA or Israel has fired any as have the clumsy Gazans or, Hamas. Before you call the kettle black, You better clean up your own backyard, neo Nazis and your own anti semitism. Soon, Bush will be gone, then, who will you blame? Your own history is one of an aggresor and war monger. We still remember the 6 million Jews who YOU murdered. Germany collectively, is one shit hole. The Russians held you like rats in a cage and YOU want to tell US all about it? Puhleeeeze, get a life.
23. The rising of the Mahdi is to the majority of Muslims...
Norway   (09.14.07)
what the return of Jesus is to Christians. Jews are waiting for the Messiah, Christians await the return of Jesus to fight the enemies of the Jewish people and to fulfill all of God’s prophetic promises to the Jews. And Muslims are waiting for both the Mahdi and Jesus. Jesus pure hands will murder the false Jewish Moshiach. Then he will kill the pigs (the Jews) break the cross, demolish oratories and churches and kill Christians, except those who believe in him, in Moslem terms, it is speaking about believing in him as a prophet and not as the S-on of God. Muslims await the appearance of the Mahdi, to fulfill these purposes: Islamic tradition pictures the Mahdi as joining with the army of Muslim warriors and he will then lead this army to Israel and re-conquer it for Islam. The Jews will be slaughtered until very few remain and Jerusalem will become the location of the Mahdi’s rule over the Earth. The Mahdi is also believed to ride on a white horse... according to the Muslim interpretation of Christian Scriptures. But in the Christian tradition it was Jesus, who is believed to ride on that white horse. "Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war." Revelation 19:11 And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and its rider had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. Revelation 6:2 "Al Mahdi and the End of Time." ‘Izzat and Arif Muslims view the Bible as having been changed and corrupted by Jews and Christians, but anyway, they still believe that some portions of the “original inspired books" are still to be found within the “corrupted” Bible. Jesus, Mahdi both coming, says Iran's Ahmadinejad...
24. Rice concern....
khader herzallah ,   amman-jordan   (09.14.07)
Rice says there must be policies to prevent dangerous people from having dangerous weapon. fine,is this going to be global to include Isreal as well?or it is limited to Iran, N.Korea,Syria-if proved that she has it?unfortunately Rice is not neutral, as her boss,both of them are discriminators and back Israel in every step,right or wrong,and the hell with the rest of the world.This is obvious to all the people ,including Israelis,but not to the advisers of the white house.Immpossible to have world peace with this mentality.
25. TIMING OF RICE STATEMENT.................
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (09.14.07)
.to me sounds too much of a coincidence.The target seems to be Iran.Somehow,getting Syria involved in this so called Nuclear sites and possibilities of N.Koreans being involved is to keep us guessing what is going on.This is a new ploy to simeltenously get Syria and Iran involved to facilitate attacking both the countries together.The dust is gathering well so far.
26. # 5, Hansy, you got it all schlecht
d.i.d.   (09.14.07)
because: 1. Israel never acknowledged it has nukes. Are you by chance privy to such information ?! And even if it did, you might know the Latin maxim "Quod licet Iovi, non licet bovi", which, just about sums it up for rogue and dishonest states like Syria and Iran. 2. You and the whole world should never be perplexed about opposing Syria's "best intentions" to have nukes. Had you lived in this part of the world and had you not gorged on politically correct European leftist media, you might have had some sense of balance and reality and even a good grip of what's going on,really,really. It's never too late... 3. Iraq is a slightly different matter.You are saying about S.Hussein:"...,however, it did not pose a threat to anyone". Even if you see Israel as "anyone" I don't think so mein Freund. If Germany had 39 Skud missiles thudding around Berlin, Frankfurt and so on, Germany would have beatten the s- - t out of Sadam. Das ist sicher ! Israel, on the other hand, had to abstain for the sake of others and not for the sake of Israel. Go to the library and see for yourself how upset and angry the German foreign minister was (sorry, it don't remember his name) for the devastation he saw when he visited Tel Aviv during this unsolicited Iraqi violation of national sovereignity in 1991. Again, you need to make a few more steps to see the whole truth, that is, if you really want to be fair. 4. You are quite right that Iraq now is a "quagmire", but I find the Iraqi warring factions, Al-Qaeda, Syria and Iran totally responsible for every little bit of killing in the region. I am absolutely convinced that had it not been for the American troups, there would have been evem more killings and summary executions and beheadings. Nowadays, if you have a good look ,the figures of casuality are slightly dropping day after day. Of course, the place is still not a tourist paradise, but who knows, one day maybe... I should say, as opposed to your cynicism, curageously done George W ! 5. Speaking of terrorism, again, you got the cynical grasp when you fear the American people. Instead of adopting a very unusual German way of life: "Morgen,morgen, nur nicht heute ! Sprechen immer traege Leute", you and others like you should get your Arse moving quickly and do something against European and world terrorism, till it's too late. Don't just contemplate, start with changing your attitude. GOOD LUCK !
27. Right on target Andy !
Instead of being forever thankful to the American people for saving their hungry and dying German asses right after WWII even if this meant more dead American GI-s, and instead of being grateful for helping to rebuild modern Germany, this German wise guy, Johannes, easily and conveniently forgets everything. I wonder, who is he grateful to these days ?
28. to #5
William Lorraine ,   Los Angeles, USA   (09.14.07)
Germany has a long history of being on the wrong side reguarding moral issues. We know your past. The left is turning Europe into Eurabia. I hope your children (the few that you make)will one day escape from the Sharia law their hippie parents, like you,ushered in.You have failed to learn from your past. Europe will either be saved by better men than yourself ,or fall to Islam.
29. Johannes (5) shows why Europe had TWO "world wars."
sk ,   USA   (09.14.07)
You know, there is definitely something worth study in modern Europe: the defects of democratic governance. Or perhaps, the defects of the Judeo-Christian tradition. Because really, Johannes, that was the stupidest TB I have read - by anyone. It has not a single sensible line, and it comes from someone in a city (Berlin) who should understand how totalitarian ideologies work (both Nazi and Communist). Typically I assume that the writers from Eurabia are really Muslims, but in your case, I think you are really German.
30. 27: agreed (and Andy, agreed)
sk ,   USA   (09.14.07)
I have traveled all around Europe (except for Germany). But I've met enough Germans to form an opinion. They are by far the most annoying and morally deficient people in Europe (with plenty of exceptions, of course, we're talking averages here), a continent that is itself deficient. The major problem is that Germans are sanctimonious as hell. This makes them arrogant. While other Euros share the same stupid ideologies that the German elite possess, no other people are as smugly confident. I have yet to see Germany be a positive force for civilization since the end of Weimar. And it's been almost 100 years.
