So let’s see if we have this straight. After the Anti-War Messiah Barack Hussein Obama retreats from Iraq with HIS tail between his legs and invades Pakistan, one of his close advisors Samantha Power wants to invade the Jewish State of Israel.
What we don’t need is some kind of early warning mechanism there, what we need is a willingness to put something on the line in helping the situation. Putting something on the line might mean alienating a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import; it may more crucially mean sacrificing—or investing, I think, more than sacrificing—billions of dollars, not in servicing Israel’s military, but actually investing in the new state of Palestine, in investing the billions of dollars it would probably take, also, to support what will have to be a mammoth protection force, not of the old Rwanda kind, but a meaningful military presence. Because it seems to me at this stage (and this is true of actual genocides as well, and not just major human rights abuses, which were seen there), you have to go in as if you’re serious, you have to put something on the line.
Unfortunately, imposition of a solution on unwilling parties is dreadful. It’s a terrible thing to do, it’s fundamentally undemocratic. But, sadly, we don’t just have a democracy here either, we have a liberal democracy. There are certain sets of principles that guide our policy, or that are meant to, anyway. It’s essential that some set of principles becomes the benchmark, rather than a deference to [leaders] who are fundamentally politically destined to destroy the lives of their own people. And by that I mean what Tom Friedman has called “Sharafat” [Sharon-Arafat]. I do think in that sense, both political leaders have been dreadfully irresponsible. And, unfortunately, it does require external intervention…. Any intervention is going to come under fierce criticism. But we have to think about lesser evils, especially when the human stakes are becoming ever more pronounced.
She wants to launch a enormous Military Intervention on behalf of the Islamic Terrorists also known as the so called “Palestinian People” who think it’s completely “Oky Doky” to blow themselves up and kill innocent civilians in order to push the Jewish State of Israel into the sea shifting billions of dollars in military aid to a ally and give the money instead to terrorists who currently are using foreign aid from other countries to buy weapons instead of peacefully working toward building a nation, feeding and caring for their own people.
Let us not forget that the “Chosen One” Obama served on a board that funded Pro-Palestinian groups.
Is Chris Matthews’ leg tingling yet?
