The Administration's Hypocrisy

The U.S. has threatened to attack Syria and Iran. And Mr. Obama is using drones to kill people in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia without even calling it war. There are many more examples.

Kerry and Obama

(RICHMOND) - Secretary of State John Kerry (March 2) described Russia’s action in Crimea as "an incredible act of aggression… You just don't in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pretext," he said. And President Barack Obama (March 17) declared “Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity must be respected, and international law must be upheld.”

Messrs. Kerry and Obama must be joking!

The U.S. invaded Iraq and Afghanistan “on completely trumped up pretexts.” (If you still believe George Bush had legitimate reasons to attack Iraq, please read the transcript of his press conference of Aug. 21, 2006. There he confessed that both his “reasons” were bogus.)

The U.S. has threatened to attack Syria and Iran. And Mr. Obama is using drones to kill people in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia without even calling it war. There are many more examples.

Israel’s treatment of the indigenous people of Palestine makes South Africa’s apartheid look mild. (Americans are unaware of the atrocities because our media avoids reporting on them.) So will Obama impose strict sanctions on Israel? Hardly. On the contrary he’s giving advanced U.S. weapons and billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to the Israeli government to continue terrorizing the people whose land it is stealing.
