Damned Proud Killers !

Serials, contrary to accidental killers, always like to boast about their superiority, their actions, and their crimes. In his recent revelations on what was going on behind the scenes during the July war of Israeli agression on Lebanon, John Bolton just says loud what everybody has been suspecting, that the US, UK, and the international community at large were blocking a ceasefire in Lebanon, hoping that Israel was going to destroy Hezbollah ! I have written elsewhere on this blog that Hezbollah and its allies are more than 50 % of the Lebanese population and that Hezbollah is unlike any islamist organisation; it is not a criminal network, it is a resistance movement and a national political organisation (not an exported network of terror like Al Qaida); it is part of the Lebanese political landscape, has elected representatives in the parliament and ministers in the government. It enjoys wide popular support in Lebanon and Lebanese consider Hezbollah as a legitimate resistance movement to Israel.

Mr Bolton, a controversial and blunt-speaking figure, said he was "damned proud of what we did" to prevent an early ceasefire.

Also in the BBC programme, several key players claim that, privately, there were Arab leaders who also wanted Israel to destroy Hezbollah.

More than 1,000 Lebanese civilians and an unknown number (less than 100) of Hezbollah fighters were killed in the conflict.

At the time, Ms Rice, US secretary of state, declared that the Israeli agression on Lebanon and its fallouts of displaced civilians (around a million) and dead civilians (more than a thousand mostly women and children) 'were the pangs of birth of a new Middle East'.

South Lebanon, mainly agriculture based, is now littered with US made cluster bombs which continue to kill to this day preventing peasants from harvesting their cultures.

Bolton, who is proud of his actions, was a prominent friend of the pro-Sanyura, pro-Hariri, 14th March movement in Lebanon who honored him in NYC, 2 months before the israeli agression, with the Shield of the Cedar commemorating the now deceased 2005 (thanks mainly to the Israeli agression on Lebanon) Cedar Revolution.

Listen to Bolton speaking to Radio Canada's host Carol Off yesterday (first segment of As It Happens, 8 minutes)

Too many birth pangs, no delivery yet! Wonder if they are trying to give bearth to a dead child!

The child is a monster. Do you remember this scene from Alien ?

Naj said...

nope, I have never seen the alien :) And that means i can imagine how monsterous the child will be. I refuse to look at scary gory pictures.

A member of the Lutheran-Germanic branch of the Neocon cult.

Just like Herr Rumsfeld.

Funny how the Neocon were able to bring together within a single political movement Trotskyite-Marxist activists of Hebrew persuasion and Prussian-Bismarckian fascist types as such as mad-moustache John B. …
