Just Sayin'

Notice how we're beating the war drums over Russia's annexation of predominantly ethnic-Russian Crimea yet when Israel steals the Palestinian homeland in the West Bank we sort of cheer them on.  Our supposed best friends have held the Palestinians captive, under brutal and often murderous occupation for half a century, and we're pretty much fine with it.

Oh yeah. It's complete bullshit.

I'm no fan of Putin, but to expect a major world power to submit to losing a major military base, see its own people turned into second-class citizens in a neighbouring country that's trying to join an alliance against it ... even leaving aside the USA's moral hypocrisy, it defies realpolitick.

And, for me, the support for the last Israeli carpet-bombing/mass murder in Gaza was an inarguable sign of moral imbecility on the part of the cheerleaders.

Scum who have nothing to say to us, let alone teach us, about morality.
