United States: Spiraling Into Hypocrisy and Darkness

Israel, where lies, propaganda and murder are subsidized by the U.S. taxpayer.

(SALEM, Ore.) - If the United States were to be attacked again, I doubt other nations would lose near the number of tears.

They did once, but then it only takes so many opportunities to prove to the world that you are only a semblance, a joke of your former self.

Blood drips from the hands of Israel and this country, and it is not biased to stand against murder and flagrant violations of International Law.

If Iran had hinted at doing such a thing, the western world would be standing shoulder to shoulder to condemn the action, but if Israel does it, murder is a different matter.

The United States is rotten to the core for this inability to simply stand up for right over wrong. That is how simple the matter is.

The vessel attacked by Israeli commandos was in international waters, by every account Israel chose to operate as a rogue criminal nation, once again.

It seems fair that reprisals are in order, it is probably just a matter of time. The world hopefully will come together in military action against Israel next time it does this, and it will not be the U.S. or England and it certainly won't be Norway or Italy. These are the two nations that sided with the U.S. in voting against a UN Resolution to investigate the incident without minimizing the gravity of the situation.

Norway and Italy also condone Israeli murder. Like the U.S. government, they in turn outwardly support it. But then Norway was Nazi during WWII and Italy is the land of fascist Mussolini. Man how the sides change when the U.S. is in the picture.

Israel needs to be stripped of its military hardware and capabilities, and Iran's demands for inspectors to be allowed to see Israel's hundreds of illegal nuclear weapons must be met. The Goldstone Report indicts Israel for War Crimes in Gaza during the winter of 2008/2009; that is an unaddressed matter thanks to Neti and Obama. The U.S. needs to pull back Israel's fleet of 352 deadly F-16 fighters. The U.S. needs to cut all support for this genocidal racist propaganda machine that steals land; it is a waste of time, and an abomination to our declining moral structure as a nation.

There are not two equal sides to any news story when one side is constantly committing murder against the other.

Video report on UN Resolution

The Human Rights Council today adopted a resolution in which it condemned in the strongest terms the outrageous attack by Israeli forces against the humanitarian flotilla bound for Gaza.

The attack resulted in the killing and injuring of many innocent civilians from different countries, and decided to dispatch an independent international fact finding mission to investigate violations of international law resulting from the Israeli attack.

The Council adopted a resolution, by a vote of 32 in favour, three against, and nine abstentions, in which it deeply deplored the loss of life of innocent civilians and expressed its deepest sympathy and condolences to the victims and their families.

The United States voted against, along with Norway and Italy, while other European Union states abstained, as did Japan.

The Council called on Israel to fully cooperate with the International Committee of the Red Cross to seek and provide information on the whereabouts, status and condition of the detained and injured persons and demanded that Israel release all detained men and material and facilitate their safe return to their homelands.

It also called on Israel to immediately lift the siege on occupied Gaza.

Iran has more blood on their hands than any other country in the middle east, and maybe the whole world after North Korea and China. They are a major sponsor of terrorism who is about to get their block knocked off. I can't see how anyone could see them other than warmongers. In regards to America being rotten to the core, then you just have no idea what's going on in the world, now or historically it appears. Certainly LBJ was rotten to the core for not carpet bombing Israel back in 1967, Carter and Clinton were completely impotent, but Obama has been the rotten turd that has emboldened these other Islamic terrorist around the world with his weak sister bowing and scraping to America's enemies. He has no leadership abilities, so expect more acting out in concert by the terrorists all over the planet, including domestically until we replace him, sooner the better. Did you know it was Obama's buddies Ayers, his co-murdering terrorist wife and the head of Code Pink who orchestrated this flotilla? It was not for aid, it was to do exactly what it is doing, and frankly I like the majority of Americans have more pressing concerns on the home front from the massive oil spill to the increasing invasion of illegals that will no doubt be a major problem over the summer months. When Obama took the weak approach to the FT Hood bloodbath he opened the barn door for the jihadists. He is an obamination to my country.

Editor: This is the type of comment I hate to approve, because it is false and you will sadly make people believe it, simply by writing it.  Iran does not have 'more blood on its hands' than any nation.  They seek peace, they do not have nuclear weapons, and that is all anyone who knows anything knows this is pure BS from one end to the other, and anti-American as Hell, so take a hike Stone and know that your next rambling will be flushed down the drain, and if you write a bunch of angry crap in response, we'll do the same.  The only problems on this earth actually trying to destabilize any notion of world peace, are Israel, the USA and North Korea.  How's that for a grouping of 'terrorist' nations?  Just read that crap above and it is easy to believe.

"But then Norway was Nazi during WWII and Italy is the land of fascist Mussolini." Norway was Nazi? Are you high Tim? Norway was occupied, huge difference. Some interesting reading for you. http://www.shalomlife.com/eng/12817/40_of_Norwegians_Plan_to_Boycott_Israeli_Products/
