Transparent Cynicism

The US is guilty once again of speaking with a forked tongue, speaking out of both sides of its mouth, saying one thing and meaning another.

We say there should be a cease-fire in Lebanon. And then we take action, or to be more accurate, pursue non-action, to lessen the possibilities that there will be a cease-fire.

The US Ambassador to the UN tries to make it seem obvious: “How do you get a cease-fire between one entity which is the government of a democratically elected state and another entity which is a terrorist gang, no one has yet explained.”

Hey, jerk off, if you have the means you lead, that’s what you do. You don’t sit around bemoaning the fact that you can’t do anything. Geez!

At the risk of sounding anti-Israel or an Hezbollah apologist, which I’m not, it’s totally clear that the US position is a stall to give the Israelis more time to damage Hezbollah. Which they won’t be able to do successfully. Why? Because Hezbollah has thousands of weapons in thousands of places and unless Israel levels and depopulates all of Southern Lebanon they can’t get at them.

In the meantime, hundreds and soon thousands of innocents will die for no reason. So what else is new, right? It’s just our policy of Transparent Cynicism on display one more time.
