    Another LttE (though not from the Fayetteville paper):

    U.S. should emulate Israel’s no-nonsense approach

    Today, I have read, heard and seen the small state of Israel’s response to those evil forces that would do it in: Hamas, Hezbollah, Syria.

    I only wish that our country would have the same straightforward, no-nonsense, no-crap stance against the foreign states that “threaten” us, i.e. North Korea for starters.

    I am a Republican conservative and a Christian but have the greatest respect and admiration for the small Jewish state of Israel.

    I’m not quite sure what to make of that last sentence.

    And speaking of the Second Coming, I happened on a website yesterday (somethimg like ApocalypseReady) on which a bunch of posters were literally ecstatic over the developments in the ME, convinced that this time Jesus is coming for sure.

    I’ll try to find the link.

    The thread seems to have moved, but here’s the cache. An example:

    I too am soooo excited!! I get goose bumps, literally, when I watch what’s going on in the M.E.!! And Watcherboy, you were so right when saying it was quite a day yesterday, in the world news, and I add in local news here in the Boston area!! Tunnel ceiling collapsed on a car and killed a woman of faith, and we had the most terrifying storms I have ever seen here!! But, yes, Ohappyday, like in your screen name , it is most indeed a time to be happy and excited, right there with ya!!

    How can you even deal rationally with folks who think like this?
