US was the only Nation to Veto this resolution condemning Israel

Only one Nation out of all 15 Nations decided to Veto this resolution?

Of course he is lol. They were pretty much forced to leave Saudi Arabia and their new base is in Bahrain. If they piss off the locals their new base will be at Sea

This sort of thing just highlights the corruption in the world today. 14 states were in favour of this resolution but the U.S with it's power to veto shot it down. wtf?

Also, the U.S are giving mixed messages. They say they acknowledge the illegal settlements BUT also say they don't want to intervene with resolutions and would rather deal with it through peace talks which are NON-BINDING and mean NOTHING.

However, when America does want to intervene with something like Libya they will move fast and pressure the whole world to take action. At the same time when the Ivory Coast and other places in the world were in a bad state America does NOTHING. It's all about politics and securing the best interests of their own country. Noone cares about civil wars really, or the poor, unless it directly impacts their own country (e.g OIL!)

^ I wouldn't characterize it as "corruption". Self-serving, yes, but not necessarily corrupt. This isn't a new concept, folks. The entire history of human government highlights our inherent self-serving nature.

Well, that's true. It just pisses me off lol. People are so quick to believe what they hear in the media but what they really need to understand is that EVERY country only cares about it's own interests and how to preserve those interests. We don't really get to hear everything going on behind closed doors.

Send a message via MSN to scottwww
This is the first I have heard of this:
The Obama State Department is severely chastising the Israeli government for withholding tax revenues from the Palestinian Authority (PA). Israel is responding to the PA's creation of a "Unity Government" with Hamas; Hamas, whose stated mission is the destruction of Israel and has been designated by the U.S. as a "terrorist organization."

According to news reports, the Obama Administration says it's "premature" to stop funding the PA - that Israel and the United States should "wait and see" what kind of policies this new terrorist-related government puts in place.

Anything to it?

I'd like to think this is true, why do you say? I don't consider Israel much of a friend to the US.

If the US is really neutral in this case they should abstain from voting even though they should vote for a Palestinian State in the same way they voted for a Israeli state.

That will never happen. America and Israel work together and care only for their own interests. Infact you can include Britain in that too. Noone can do anything in the world without these powers having a say in it. No nuclear programme for Iran, but known nuclear weapons for Israel? No problem. Same with America and Britain. Bastards. They kill thousands in any lands that they wish in the name of a so-called "war on terror". Israel is a terrorist state IMO.

I hope Palestine get their statehood bid approved but even at that I don't think anything will change. America does not respect the sovereignty of any state. They will start wars wherever they wish and use the media to promote their lies.
