Kerry lectures the world about the "slaughter of civilians"

 US signals intent to take action against Assad regime






John Kerry. Hypocrite




The obscene hypocrisy of Kerry and the United States generally is as  breathtaking as it is nauseous. Kerry leaps in with open mouth to lecture the world that the " indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity". and "This international norm cannot be violated without consequences,".



Lebanon

Damascus


















 




To any right thinking person, it is ironically bizarre that when Israel violates the norm and attacks Gaza, or Lebanon or hundreds of other "targets" in the neighbouring countries generally and in the occupied territories of Palestine, the silence from Kerry and the Untied States is thunderous. White phosphorous (banned by International law when used against civilians) ,cluster bombs, depleted uranium and all the other evil paraphernalia of the Israeli war machine, is used indiscriminately against the civilian population of these locations regularly, killing thousands of men, women and children.





Gaza


Israel has carried out countless airstrikes and insurgencies in to Gaza, in addition to numerous invasions of neighbouring countries, each time killing hundreds or even thousands of civilians.  "Before Kerry or anyone else in the American administration, has the audacity to lecture the world on the "indiscriminate slaughter of civilians", they should look to their own record and their unquestioning support and acceptance of Israeli actions.
