Breathtaking hypocrisy.

John Kerry careful not to rule out return to UN for Syria resolution



                            






                                     



The hypocrisy of the whole clamour by the west to attack Syria is is nauseating, not only in the way that lies, distortion and half truth is being turned into "irrefutable evidence" but also in the complete disregard of equally obscene events in other countries. The fundamental difference is that the "obscene events" in other countries are evidenced, filmed, reported, photographed and proved without any shadow of doubt, but are totally ignored by "the west" generally and by the United States in particular.
Kerry said ""Those videos make it clear to people that these are real human beings, real children, parents being affected in ways that are unacceptable to anybody, anywhere by any standards, and the United States of America that has always stood with others to say we will not allow this this is not our values, it's not who we are."
Breathtaking hypocrisy. Perhaps Kerry and other American "leaders" believe that the world has not noticed or that in other cases the phrase "Well, that's different" has some sort of effect which justifies the killing of men, women and children. In Palestine generally and Gaza in particular, the Israeli army of occupation together with the Israeli air force, have been killing Palestinian men women and children for many years and have been using some of the most evil weaponry (short of nuclear, so far) ever devised by man, and much of which incidentally has been financed and supplied by the United States.
To ignore, as the west does on a daily basis, the killing of civilians in Palestine but argue hysterically for military intervention in Syria beggars belief, particularly when such intervention is "justified" by unproven myth and dubious "facts".
The hidden agenda for American aggression against Syria seems to justify any "selective outrage".
