Hamas’ indiscriminate mass massacre of Israeli Jews remains unjustifiable at any and every level and must rightly be globally condemned as a crime against humanity. But my standard is a consistent one. Israel must not now commit atrocities in retaliation. Cutting innocent Gaza residents off from basic necessities such as food, water, shelter, power and medical treatment cannot be countenanced or rationalized.
Regarding the horrific devastation of the hospital, Hamas says it resulted from a targeted Israeli attack, while Israel claims Hamas rockets are to blame. Let’s get to the bottom of it. Lies are the language of war and treachery.
Sure, I have issues with the way Biden handles parts of his job. But only a blind, partisan hack (admittedly, there are plenty of those) can deny that he is quite good at managing international crises. Quite good. Uncommonly good. Biden, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin make a formidable and highly-credentialed team. Can you imagine how badly and dangerously Trump would fuck this up, both now and going forward? I can, and I don’t want to find out.
Remember when attempting to overthrow the U.S. government would likely disqualify a person for being Speaker of the House? I enjoyed watching Jim Jordan getting blown out of the “gym” Tuesday on the House floor. And that beat-down will only get worse on “Day Two.”
Putting aside moral, legal, ethical and Constitutional issues for the moment, my biggest problem with these Cultish Fire Breathers is that they are frighteningly incompetent, and both unable and unqualified to govern.
