Lebanon Latest: Israel Claims Whole World Is With It ...
We awoke this morning to find an amazing assertion by Israel that the whole wide world is with it with regard to it's bloody bombardment of Lebanon. And to learn that by using this as an excuse they not only intend to continue committing war crimes, but to willfully 'scale-up' said insane savagery.
Well, we wonder which world they are referring to, as it's certainly not the same planet as is populated by the many millions of civilized people making up that human race to which we two belong.
Far from it. In fact it's a whole world away.
Much nearer the truth is that it's BushCo's current neon-con American administration that is backing it - in many more ways than one - and backing it wholeheartedly too.
And that several subjugated, and slimy self serving, so-called world leaders calling themselves representatives of their peoples, are craven cowards, and as such are afraid to arise and be counted. Even though it's already painfully obvious that any further appeasement of either 21st century Pax Americana and/or an aspiring, aggresive & expansionist Greater Israel is absolutely not right.
Surely there comes a time when the people must make themselves heard. It happened with Viet Nam and eventually the people prevailed. And judging by increasing international 'popular opinion' it seems to several thousand million ordinary people that an equally serious and sickening situation is seemingly set before us all -- yet again.
So shouldn't we recognize that the time has come when all & every peaceful kind of protest as it's legally possible to employ, has again arrived?
Since otherwise, in the absence of any such outcry coupled with shows of utter global outrage, we are all complicit; we are all accomplices.
And therefore by logical extension -- all self confessed criminals -- and guilty as charged.
We rest our case.
