  Resolved Question: Why did various UUP
In 2003 numerous UUP MP's and MLA's resigned in retaliation to the leadership of David Trimble. MP's Jeffery Donaldson, David Burnside, and Rev. Martin Smyth all resigned the party whip at Westminster. While MLA's Nora Beare and Arlene Foster defected to the DUP in 2003. What reasons were their resignations based on? What were the main aspects of the Trimble leadership that they opposed?

  Resolved Question: Are Israel’s 'Friends'
Israel has invited Conservative Lord David Trimble to become an independent observer (suppressed laughter) in its self-appointed inquiry into the piratical assault on the Mavi Marmara, in which at least nine aid workers were murdered. As it happens, Trimble has just joined the odious John Bolton to launch the "Friends of Israel Initiative", a new project to counter attempts to delegitimize the State of Israel. Trimble is remembered for his connection with the fanatical and extremist Orange Order of Northern Ireland. A hundred years ago people siding with a foreign power at British expense could have found themselves swinging by the neck. Three hundred years ago they risked their heads on pikes for what used to be called treason. The Conservatives meanwhile are bulging with Israeli flag wavers. The prime minister David Cameron, has declared himself a Zionist. His foreign secretary and defence secretary are both leading Friends of Israel. Indeed, 80 per cent of Conservative MPs and MEPs are thought to belong to the pro-Israel lobby, according to a recent Channel 4 TV “Dispatches” programme. http://www.redress.cc/stooges/jones_oborne20091119 After recent scandals the British people have been promised a major clean-up of politics. In the pipeline are constitutional changes that will give voters power to force an MP who engages in serious wrongdoing to face another election. All they’ll need is the backing of 10 per cent of constituents in a petition. As well as the power to get rid of corrupt MPs, changes include a clampdown on lobbying in Parliament, a statutory register of lobbyists and a clean-up of party funding. But could any of this bring an end to infiltration by agents of a foreign power? The three main political parties in the UK each have a “Friends of Israel” lobby organization that ensures pro-Israel members are embedded at all key levels in Parliament and government. These adherents to another flag inhibit the government when it comes to taking a principled stand on issues such as Israel's murderous and unlawful blockade of Gaza and continuing illegal occupation of the West Bank. Your thoughts,....

  Resolved Question: David Trimble seems to be
As soon as I heard the names of the two "foreign observers" the Israelis have asked onto the panel investigating the lethal attack on the boats bringing aid to Gaza, I had a look around google. It seems David Trimble is a Zionist so there's no surprise there but I can't find much about Ken Watkin. The BBC is reporting "The Whitehouse approves of the appointments" so maybe we should expect the panel to find the Israelis were acting in self defence. I don't understand Old Dog's answer. There's the United Nations, you could ask the Chinese, the Indians. There are plenty of people. It's just that hiring someone a quick google tells you is known as a Zionist more or less kills any chance anyone will think the conclusions of the enquiry will be worth anything and everyone will be saying "white phosphorus" again!

  Resolved Question: Like his work to bring
Editorial Obama and the Nobel: He Loses by Winning - Giving the Peace Prize to the President so Soon in his Term Embarrasses Him and Diminishes the Honor Excessive praise can be unwelcome and embarrassing. Just ask President Obama, who awoke Friday to discover that he had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize before he had completed even a year in office. Obama managed to be both abashed and appreciative in his response, but no amount of self-effacing spin can obscure the oddity of this award. For the president's critics on the right, the Nobel feeds a narrative in which Obama is more interested in flattering foreigners than in defending U.S. interests. To those in his restive progressive base, it appears that the peacemaker's mantle has been draped on the shoulders of a president who is presiding over two distant wars and who may soon send as many as 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan. For our part, we're fans of the president. We endorsed him for the job, and we greatly prefer him to his predecessor. But it's difficult to see why he deserves the peace prize so soon after taking office. The Nobel committee didn't just embarrass Obama, it diminished the credibility of the prize itself, which traditionally rotates among world leaders (Willy Brandt, Mikhail Gorbachev), charitable organizations (Amnesty International, Doctors Without Borders) and humanitarians (Elie Wiesel, Mother Teresa). Obama was cited for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples." Yes, he has reached out to adversaries (notably Iran, with mixed results). Yes, he delivered an admirable speech in Cairo in which he called for "a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world." Yes, he has called for a world without nuclear weapons. But all of these initiatives are, to use a polite word, aspirational. By contrast, other political leaders have received the prize for real accomplishments (though a secondary purpose was to encourage further progress). That was the case with Anwar Sadat and Menachem Begin, who were awarded the 1978 prize for the Camp David peace accords, and, 20 years later, with David Trimble and John Hume, the Northern Ireland politicians who were honored for the Good Friday peace agreement. In 1973, Henry Kissinger and North Vietnam's Le Duc Tho were recognized for a peace agreement that ultimately went awry, but at least there was an agreement. (Prophetically, Le Duc Tho declined the award because lasting peace hadn't been established.) It's hard to escape the impression that Obama was honored because he isn't George W. Bush. That's an admirable trait, but it doesn't entitle him to a distinction Alfred Nobel said should be conferred on "the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses." We suspect that Obama would agree. HIM. What do you think? Copyright © 2009, The Los Angeles Times http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/editorials/la-ed-nobel10-2009oct10,0,1431554.story
