OK, I am but a casual user of the thing, I use it to follow about 50 peeps but never tweet.

In the last few days the thing has erupted into "Zionist pigs" "The Palestinians will destroy Israel" etc tweets and retweets. There has been quite a few about the plight of Gazza?!?!

Now I am not wishing to get into the specifics of the war but after 200 rockets getting fired I can see why they blew the chap up in the car.

Most of these people tweeting are following a fashion conflict with no understanding of the actual issues but they have a platform which is validated by all of the press outlets in the western world.

Lets keep the thing to Lady Gaga's fat arse or shut the damn thing down.

EDIT: bombed not bomber

Just stop following the irritating ones. And turn off re-tweets... that's the real PITA for me.

I can see that you rely on the BBC for the news.
Check out the statistics, you will find it is a bit one sided.

B'Tselem - Statistics - Fatalities (http://old.btselem.org/statistics/english/Casualties.asp)

Moreover, the current attack on Gaza just happen to be prior to Israel elections; the same scenario as the last one.


Rory Suchet (himself Jewish & son of the ITN news reader) gave a fantastic interview of the Israeli on RT. It exposed the real agenda of the 'war'.

I personally don't get the "I'm on this side" shite that fills the internet any time this kind of thing erupts. "Oh look at this website this will tell you everything you need to know" ramblings.

I am sure now that you've offered the definitive analysis of the conflict that Twitter will slowly fade away, having outlived its usefulness.

Either that or you're an idiot.

One of those.

A sad waste of talent and now he's just a laughing stock. Tragic really.

Ah, the Gary Glitter silly little beard and 'tache combo.

Someone should tell Gazza about this.

Chomsky eh? Whatever he thinks/suggests, the reality/workable solution will be the opposite. Like most socialists really, no matter how intelliigent they are. Succesful human societies are based on realities, not ideals.

Pity we can't find that Star Trek-type device to create infinite wormholes to other habitable worlds and we could all go to one of our own choosing with those who broadly think like us. Give it 5000 years and the really socialist worlds would be barren wastes.

So how do you apply this approach when two socialists have two diametrically opposed suggestions?

PS Actually, having undertaken extensive research on Chomski's views (at least 20s on Wikipedia) since posting above, I am not sure he is such a lefty idiot and maybe some of his ideas deserve more detailed consideration (at least 2 min on Wikipedia). It's just that some prominent lefty idiots, like Chavez, claim to idolise him.

One glaring problem is his opposition to state capitalism, epitomised by China. For all the corruption, it's a system that seems to be working quite well for its people. A bloody site better than real communism anyway.

That is confusing. The term state capitalism has historically been used to describe communist states, where (it is argued) capital had not been abolished but acquired by the state for control by an élite. China is not now a state capitalist state but an authoritarian one party capitalist state. It has a certain amount in common politically with sub-fascist states like Pinochet's Chile - at least in terms of where it is now. In terms of direction of travel, that is a whole different ball game.
