Praying for you
Nothing fails like prayer, so it's no surprise that that is what the U.S. is offering Lebanon, as we affect patience and disinterest while our client state goes on a mad and bloody rampage with the weapons we bought for them.
Rice tells Sfeir U.S. is 'Praying' for Lebanese CiviliansAnd oh yes, the Democrats are rushing up to prove that they have an even bigger hard on for mass murder than the current bunch of psychopaths in charge of the government. Thus spake Hillary:
U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told Patriarch Nasrallah Sfeir on Tuesday that Americans were praying for Lebanese civilians amid the conflict with Israel.
"We are, of course, working very hard to minimize the impact of the current conflict on the Lebanese people," the State Department quoted Rice as saying in the telephone conversation.
"And I want you to know that we're not only working very hard, but we're also praying for the people of Lebanon," she was quoted as saying.
Sfeir replied that Israel was placing Lebanon under attack and that his country did not have the means to respond.
"When some are having arms and the others have not there is no equality," the State Department quoted Sfeir as saying.
"We will stand with Israel because Israel is standing for American values as well as Israeli ones" ....She may be right about this, but not in the way she thinks.
The hollow rhetoric of freedom and justice convinces so few now, you have to wonder why they bother any more. Perhaps to try to convince themselves that they are not in fact the callous sociopaths that the news and images from all corners of the empire insist that they are. "Out out, damn spot." But the spot just deepens and grows.
