It’s Okay if Israel Does it

George W. Bush on Russia’s attacks on Georgia.

Russia has invaded a sovereign neighboring state and threatens a democratic government elected by its people. Such an action is unacceptable in the 21st century,” the president said in a televised statement from the White House, calling on Moscow to sign on to the outlines of a cease-fire as the Georgian government has done.

I seem to recall Israel invading a “sovereign neighboring state” threatening that democratic government, elected by its people. That nation would be Lebanon. That year would be 2006. That is in the 21st century. If it is unacceptable for Russia to do this in the 21st century, why was it acceptable for Israel?

Why shouldn’t this be the “birth pangs of a new Caucasus?”

  1. Anything America or it’s allies do is ok and anything America’s enemies do is atrocious. As you know, our sense of right and wrong has nothing to do with what’s actually right or wrong when it comes to things like this. That’s what secret combinations are all about amigo.

  2. LOL
