God, the father of those kids at the grocery store that you want to throttle

”œI don’t think America should play the role of the leader of the peace process,” he said. ”œInstead we should stand by our ally. Again, my inclination is to follow the guidance of our ally Israel, as to where our facilities and embassies would exist.”

Now that’s the kind of preening fealty to a foreign power we expect from the leader of the free world. Unfortunately, Mitt is the moderate in the Republican field, as Anshel Pfeffer points out at Haartz. I’ll go kosher if Obama doesn’t compete hard for the crown of “I love Israel best” over the next, very long year. So my guess is that this is the most moderate statement on Israel we’ll hear.

Nothing after the break, because i’m too damned tired of the geopolitics wrapped up in the religious tradition of three, whiny, violent siblings in the back seat of the world’s family car. If God were a proper father, He’d not only turn the damned car around, he’d smack the shit out of all of them and teach them how to behave.

    out of all three countless of times; they just aren’t particularly quick on the uptake.

    One of the many differences between a computer and an intolerant religious fanatic is that generally you only have to punch information into a computer once.

    But if they’re too dense for His subtlety, then it’s time to move towards a more fire and brimstone technique.

    The earth last night, because with that level of stupidity from one of the leader of the free world in waiting, such a comment is worthy of extinction. Did the repub. find that candidate in a box of kosher Cracker Jack?
    BTW, it’s supposed to pass between earth and the moon at or around 6:28 pm EDT.

    then it’s all three sitting in the backseat of the car, whining to an empty driver seat while the car drifts ever closer to a cliff edge. The atheist wanted to drive, but they were hogtied and placed in the truck (due to lack of faith.)

    What could possibly go wrong? BTW – I’m not an atheist, but I’m willing to parse shit from shinola when it’s killing my world ;)

    Wall Street…A TOTAL FRAUD.

    The anything goes endorsement of anything the extreme right in Israel does is all about … THE MONEY.

    Let’s have some more settlements, invasions of Lebanon, etc. etc. It’s all good if it lines the pockets and influence of any politician ready to betray rationality and international law.

    I have to hand it to Obama. He’s a total master of duplicity and the main man in the Middle East. It was time for Gaddafi to go so, round up some al Qaeda allies, get Al Jazeerah to crank out a bunch of propaganda, and turn Arab Spring into many giant steps backwards (I fell for that for a bit, mea maxima culpa). It works for the rulers…instability equals higher oil prices and more justification for spectacular waste on weapons systems.

    “We’re through the Looking Glass” as Nixon said in the Stone film. I’ve tried to figure out how the UN got from “patchy” accounts of war crimes by Gaddafi to a war resolution 22 days later. Silly me. Proof, site visits, verification were not the order of the day. It was all a giant game of pretend by a bunch of hacks who do whatever their rulers, aka The Money Party says. I don’t now about the level of abuses Gaddaffi actually committed but I do know that the UN didn’t know. It just used whatever flimsy excuse the latest obscure NGO tossed out. Shame on them…but they have no shame.

    (PS. When I lived in Manhattan, just about everybody loathed the UN. Why? They’d use their damn license plates to get ticket free, no towed, illegal parking. Even today, seeing a diplomatic license makes me cringe a bit. I think the particular generalizes. Flagrantly cheat on parking and there’s no limit to the lies you’ll tell;)

    …the outrage du jour.

    In combat one should be very suspicious of painless moral choices. When you are confronted with a seemingly painless moral choice, the odds are that you haven’t looked deeply enough.” ~ Karl Marlantes
