Talk:U.S. expedites bombs shipment to Israel, outcry in the Muslim world

here are my comments for latest edit:

  • preaching for restraint was not my comment, it came from the interview cited in this article.
  • also enabled, which i corrected to be more close to, again, the comments of the person cited. Also i gotta say it's common sense that jets do not fly nor bomb without jet fuel. duh.
  • added that part about the Reagan administration as per your request
  • also i think Rice's visit to Israel (it was reported that she will not visit any Arab countries on this trip) doesn't make for the contrast i was trying to achieve in the lead.


here's my to-do list for npoving.

  • official response by US and Israel to be reported
  • "preaching for restraint", note that US has not preached for all that much restraint, compared to others.
  • "enabling their bombing campaign", do any of the sources support the claim that the fuel supply has enabled the campaign?
  • "since the Bush administration came into power" needs to be balanced with what other administrations have done, viz, exactly the same thing.
  • while we're at it, wouldn't hurt to contrast the reported actions with US comments on alleged arms supplies by Iran or Syria to Hezbollah.
  • little less emphasis on historical background and more details on the current news event, the expedited shipment would be nice.

Headline has little to do with the storyEdit

Sensational headline, but what has it to do with the story? Most of the emphasis is on fuel deliveries. The first sentence asserts that "the Bush administration is rushing a delivery of bombs to Israel," but provides no substantiation or details. This is the last we hear of the bombs. 13:34, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

we have a dupeEdit

Im going to merge in some here. international 14:40, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Excessive amount of sources?Edit

I'm having a hard time believing you need 14 sources to write that story. --Jambalaya 21:02, 23 July 2006 (UTC)


I had thought they were missiles and not bombs...? -- Macaddct1984 02:36, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

protests in favor of IsraelEdit

Just saying that something happened doesn't make it true. Cite your sources. I very much doubt that you will find many sources to support this statement. Many places? Really? Even in Israel they are holding marches against the war. But if you wanna add something, back it up. This is the way this works. Even if in fact some people did rally somewhere in favor of the Israeli bombings, to put that next to the thousands of people who protest around the world against Israel's aggression is to give it the same inportance. Unless we're not going by democratic standards of what's important here. Wikinews is supposed to be, duh, news.
