Where should I go next fall? / Re: Respectable Tier 3?

If I had those choices I would probably decide not to practice law.  UIowa is a great school for many things, but law is not one of them.  If you're in Iowa City ask the locals about the school.  For the most part you'll find some that love it and have heard great things about it, and a ton who hate it and have heard only AWFUL things about it.  Leave the state for law school like I am.  Seriously.....Hope that helps.

Yeah, that University of Iowa, that top-25 law school, it's a hell-hole, absolutely terrible.  If you have to go there, kill self.  ::)

SNAP!

I prefer a big crater.  After all, if there is nobody in Lebanon, no rockets can be launched from there.

The issue is not the form of attack, but the reason behind it - or, if you prefer, how to STOP the attacks. Even a crater buffer wouldn't stop attacks from happening. Look at the nice big atlantic ocean buffer we had, and it didn't stop 9/11. Look at England's water buffer - no help from bus bombs. All your ideas do (and they seem to be shared by our current leaders) is incite more violence, more escalation, and more wasted money, time, and lives.

Well, at least it makes them more rare.  Don't compare England, they pander to the enemy that lives amongst them.  And get what's expected.

More rare? Possibly. More violent? Assuredly. How does England 'pander' to terrorists, exactly?

What's the point?

Israel can no more create peace by destroying Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Hez than others can by destroying Israel. In fact, if anything, stability will probably be more likely if Israel was the one destroyed (not that I advocate it). How can anyone, with our current experience in the middle east, believe ANYTHING but more violence will come from Israel's current actions? Even assuming Israel swept through all three nations, they'd just face insurgency (even stronger, because insurgents would feel more justified) until they finally left. At which point, the terrorist attacks would promptly resume.

I don't have a much better suggestion to try, but I can tell you right now, this is a waste of time, money, and lives.

Build a 40mi buffer zone, and shoot anything that moves inside it.  That should solve most of the problem.  If they fire rockets, ground war and air attacks to take them out.



That won't do anything except waste 40 miles of space. As for ground war to take them out, welcome to the current situation. It's not working out in Iraq, and it won't work out in lebanon. A waste of time, money, and lives.

and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?

for me, id either tell myself to stay in school and not screw off, or, invest in google at its inception.

both if i could do 2.....

I'd tell myself: "Hey, dumbass, this is how to invent a time machine!"

Aw, Halfie, I can't imagine why you deleted your post.  ;)

Ouch. Salt in the wound.

I didn't need a new thread to tell me I was going to mess up my kids. I've known that for YEARS.
