I've been trying hard to keep my stress levels down and not write about current world events, but…

I guess everyone has been taking a long hard look at the United State's policy on Israel lately — the US has in many people's eyes bent over backwards handing military and economic aid to Israel, and now it's become quite clear the US has zero power to push Israel around… And, the frightening thing is that at this point, largely thanks to US support, Israel has more military and economic power than the US in some ways, and short of a nuclear attack, there's not a whole lot the US can do to stop Israel from doing anything it wants.

National debt per capita: $6,200 $24,200
Fieldable divisions of ground troops: 19 13
Maximum daily fighter sorties: 3,000 1,600

I really can't see Israel's current course of action (a hardline stance of making Israel a Jewish-only state) being successful though... First, I don't think the Palestinians are a foe that can be beat in this type of war (short of genocide) but perhaps more importantly, I think the Christians are starting to clue in that as soon as the Muslims are all gone, they're throwing out the Christians next... And the Christians have an aweful lot of power still, quite possibly as much as the Jews, if we're going to start playing Illuminati conspiracy games.

Anyway, I'm going to go test the various programming features so they can be turned on later this evening! I don't think there should be a problem, but I want to test it all first (so if you see some odd looking diary entries popping up on my page, just ignore them)...

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
