Israel is far from blameless.

 

Both sides are ****ed up

undoubtedly true, but this has nothing to do with israel or palestine.

 

this about one last chance to call obama  bpos - not a pos - a bpos

 

 

in 2016 obama gave israel $3.6 billion  in military aid - bpos

 

so the $200 million he (bpos) managed to get through to palestine obviously proves he is a bpos

 

as if it needed proving

btw the palestinians have never had a "missile"

Incorrect. A "missle" is simply a projectile. 

 

Semantics but technically If any Palestinian had ever hurled a rock they've used a "missle"

if it has guidance it is a missile

 

if it does not have guidance it is a rocket

Technically a missile is an object forcibly propelled at a target.

I know it and always looked at it by that definition that's why i was like "hey wait a minute" lol probably shouldn't have opened my mouth though it really doesn't ****ing matter at all. haha

Usage doesn't mean that the official definition of the word is wrong. Rockets and missiles are used interchangeably by the media all of the time.

....and because of that you can't interpret a simple definition. A missile is simply any projectile weapon. Just because you didn't learn that in boot camp doesn't mean it's not so. 

 

I'm not gonna argue the point anymore and for the most part i was simply **** with you to see if you'd argue for pgs about it.  :lol:

 

I respect your service btw and i'm not being a condescending prick promise. I really do mean that. Hespect.

I am just letting you know that palestine does not possess and has never possessed a missile.

It really doesn't when you are arguing against the dictionary definition of the word.

 

this is the definition

 

"In a modern military usage, a missile, or guided missile, is a self-propelled guided weapon system, as opposed to an unguided self-propelled munition, referred to as just a rocket."

Merriam Webster disagrees therefore you are wrong because it is semantics.

this link explains in  some detail the difference between missiles and rockets

 

the fact that the palestinians are assumed to have had ONE MISSILE is big news, because they are generally believed not to have this capability

 

the fact the ensuing battle had the palestinians firing only rockets (to no effect) while the israelis fired missiles (to great effect) tells you everything you need to know about this conflict

 

we have armed one side with WMDs while the other side uses fireworks

The Palistinians might not have the technology, but they have the money to buy missiles ....

in fact, they just received 228 million courtesy of Obama to buy weapons from Iran who has

10 billion courtesy of Obama to buy weapons from Russia who has 25% of all

On the evening of November 10, 2012, Palestinian terrorist operatives fired a Kornet anti-tank missile at an IDF jeep engaged in routine counterterrorism activities near the security fence in the central Gaza Strip. The missile set the jeep on fire and wounded four IDF soldiers, two seriously, and two incurred minor wounds (IDF Spokesman, November 10, 2012)

they have no military capability. none. They are not allowed to have an army. if they can get their hands on an missile or two what do they do with them? Fire it at a bus or a jeep?

THAT is semantics.

 

calling the thousands of rockets fired into Israel "missiles" is intentional;y misleading.

It's not semantics, it's the correct expression.

 

Saying you "could care less" implies that you do, in fact, care.

juice tactic - post a link proving exactly what the difference is between missiles and rockets - try to direct the argument away from that 

 

the link you posted states specifically that the munition used to destroy the school bus was LASER GUIDED thus making it a missile.

 

I will be content with just trying to get you to know and understand what we mean when we say missile.

 

I could actually tell you all about them as I know pretty much everything there is to know about modern armament up to about the turn of the century

 

btw when we say that some entity does not have a certain capability (ie missile) that does not mean that they cannot get one or two of them and somehow fire them off - it means they lacks the necessary infrastructure to incorporate the weapon system into their armed forces.

 

in the palestinians case THEY HAVE NO ARMED FORCES, no tanks/no planes/no ships/no way to deliver missile systems to the battle ground

 

they are bunch orf rag heads throwing rocks at tanks because the world will not allow them to have an army
