Yes, just keep celebrating in your lawn chair on the hillside as your tanks fire on refugee centers, elementary schools. I can tell how endangered you are by your cappuccinos. It must be rough, like having no power, no water, no sewage system.
Which completely ignores the fact that Hamas was created and nurtured by Israel because it didn't want to deal with the PLO. They decided they could divide and weaken Palestinian resistance by developing a strictly Muslim opposition group that would exclude secularists, socialists and Christians. Well, they got exactly what they wanted. Israel has no one but themselves to blame for the power and prevalence of Hamas in Gaza, which it reinforces every day with these barbaric assaults.
I guess by wiping out the power, water and sewage systems on Gaza, Israelis must be "safer".
Actually, it's the ONLY way: "Not that anyone should get a government job with a bloated salary and fantastic benefits only to lie to the American people.
70 years of Cold War rhetoric is paying off. Americans are well-trained to believe anything, no matter how ridiculous, that indicts the Russians.
Surprise! 70 years of relentless Cold War propaganda about the inherently evil nature of Russians sunk in and stuck. What a surprise!.
I wonder how we had "time to play games" when the US cruiser shot down the Iranian airliner. Our ever dutiful watchdogs were quick to sound the alarm that the Iranian jet was starting a "bombing run" against the US forces. For weeks our media, when they mentioned it at all, only served up obfuscation and justification. But I guess that's part of what makes Americans so "Exceptional".
I'm so absolutely sure there was this much outrage and denunciation in the media when the US Navy shot down the Iranian airliner, right?
And the context is: I'm an American. If I can't take ownership of what we did to our indigenous population, I have no room to criticize Israeli attitudes. If you are Mexican or Peruvian, by all means critique Cortez or Pizarro.
I wouldn't call MSNBC the "polar opposite" of Fox, more the mirror image. Both dutifully serving their political masters and corporate bottom lines, staying strictly within the bounds of the hegemonic discourse, serving up and perpetuating disinformation to the masses, far more in common than what distinguishes them from each other.
