Giving the Finger to Iran

Humiliating Turkey and Brazil

By Gary's Choices

It turns out that this lifted middle finger was not limited to Iran. Only hours before Clinton's announcement, the foreign minister of Turkey held his own press conference. Obviously unaware of what was about to happen, he described in some detail not only the tortuous negotiation process with Iran, but his perception that he was acting directly on behalf of the United States.

U.N. Security Council meets on Israeli raid

CNN

05/31/10

Israel faced condemnation and questions Monday at an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting called by Turkey on the Israeli military’s storming of a six-ship flotilla of pro-Palestinian activists headed to Gaza with aid supplies. At least nine activists died in clashes that injured seven Israeli soldiers. Israel contends the flotilla intended to break its blockade of Gaza, while Palestinian leaders and allies said Israel launched an unprovoked military assault on civilians...

The Mediterranean Massacre

AntiWar.Com
by Justin Raimondo

06/02/10

In understanding how the Israelis justify killing sixteen civilians in international waters — and kidnapping hundreds — we have to look at it from the viewpoint of a savage. Now I don’t mean by that term someone necessarily wearing animal skins, and wielding a club: savages can wear Armani suits, and wield nuclear weapons, as the history of the twentieth century attests. In the West, however, the culture and especially religious belief prevents the celebration of savagery as civic virtue: when we commit atrocities, we justify it as a proportionate use of force in retaliation for previous acts of aggression by the victims of our wrath. Hiroshima and Nagasaki — and the arguments used to buttress the case for killing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians — come to mind. The death of innocents is explained away as ‘collateral damage.’ The savage mind, however, works differently. Shorn of what we would recognize as a moral sense, the savage glories in his capacity for pitiless violence...

America’s complicity in evil

CounterPunch
by Paul Craig Roberts

As I write at 5pm on Monday, May 31, all day has passed since the early morning reports of the Israeli commando attack on the unarmed ships carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza, and there has been no response from President Obama except to say that he needed to learn ‘all the facts about this morning’s tragic events’ and that Israeli prime minister Netanyahu had canceled his plans to meet with him at the White House. Thus has Obama made America complicit once again in Israel’s barbaric war crimes. Just as the US Congress voted to deep-six Judge Goldstone’s report on Israel’s war crimes committed in Israel’s January 2009 invasion of Gaza, Obama has deep-sixed Israel’s latest act of barbarism by pretending that he doesn’t know what has happened...
