Circular Reasoning Enables Hamas

This morning, the scene is exactly what was inevitable for that occupied White House desperately seeking terrorism. Thousands of civilians are dying from Israel's attacks on the criminally incarcerated population of Gaza. The blame that our cretin in chief assigns is thrown on Hamas.

While no one approves of the constant barrage of Israel by crude rocketry that Hamas has entered into, it is obvious that responding with unbalanced, outlandish, uninhibited attacks on the homegrown insurgency is hardly going to accomplish anything but civilian casualties, outraging the occupied territories. The next seventeen days are full of opportunities for the war criminals to make deeper inroads into what's left of respect for this country by ignoring humane considerations.

In his weekly radio address President George W Bush said Hamas was responsible for the latest violence and rejected any unilateral ceasefire that he said would allow Hamas to continue to fire on Israel.

He added that no peace deal would be acceptable without tougher action to prevent Hamas and other groups from receiving weapons.

"There must be monitoring mechanisms in place to help ensure the smuggling of weapons to terrorist groups in Gaza comes to an end," he said.

"I urge all parties to pressure Hamas to turn away from terror and to support legitimate Palestinian leaders working for peace," Mr Bush added.


Those bombardments of the Gaza populace are just not a good peace move, an aspect of his GWOT that has evaded the worst president ever. As usual, his statements are of a piece with the enlistment efforts of Hamas and other groups that oppose U.S. domination and violence. That does seem to be the aim of all their efforts.

As I observed during my attendance at the Holy Land Foundation trial in federal court in Dallas, our winger Department of Justice equates Israel's fight against Hamas with our own 'homeland security' needs. It is this conviction that an internal struggle in Israel is part of the occupied White House's 'mission' that leads to the outrageous use of injustice, and violence, to promote peace, a practice that is self-evidently contradictory to our real needs.

The willful provocations the executive branch regularly provides have been a huge boost to all our opponents, and are much appreciated by them. The circularity factor, revealing their malice toward all, in turn gives more opportunities for throwing taxpayers' money away in the fight against what they are occasioning. A perfect fit, the purveyors of violence find their purpose in combat against their own effects.

This can only end when rational behavior by functional adults is restored in our country's government.

I agree with your analysis but am not optimistic that functional adults will be able to gain control anytime soon.

I have high hopes for the events of Jan. 20, and know we will need to keep our eyes on the operations of gov't. But we have a chance to keep this executive branch in line.

The only way that Obama will have any credibility and/or leverage in world affairs regarding war crimes and crimes against humanity is to denounce the Bush years as the atrocity they were and begin a REAL investigation into those crimes. How can he take the high ground while ignoring the human suffering caused in our country's name by the former (and the past several for that matter) president. Here is the key to the whole thing, "Even if Bush is innocent of all charges, (don't laugh) in the eyes of the world, he (and our country) is guilty and if we do not take steps to try to rectify that, our word and our honor is worth diddly squat"

> Obama will have to denounce the Bush years as the atrocity they were and begin a REAL investigation into those crimes.

It's an eagerly awaited day.

But looking back at the campaign, we didn't see Obama being particularly confrontational, or might I say "righteously vindictive."

But as domestic spying and the abolishment of habias corpus (etc) are reversed, I don't think it will take too long before everyone in the world (such as the decimated Iraqi populace and the American middle class) try to pursue reparations for the Administraion's crimes.

All President Obama has to do is not get in the way, and be a strong, objective referee as what comes naturally unfolds.

Best luck,

"Thousands of civilians are dying from Israel's attacks..."
That is, of course, a gross exaggeration, i.e. a lie.

There have been 10,000 rockets and mortar shells fired into Israel from Gaza over the last eight years. Hamas remains committed to the obliteration of all Jews in their homeland. It promotes violent religious fanaticism of the type that the left has opposed so strongly in this country. It governs as a right wing dictatorship, as did its predecessor, the Palestinian authority. Yet you are happy to champion Hamas as noble defenders of liberty.

At which point do you come to see that this position is anti-Jewish racism of the most ugly kind?

Or are you like the unapologetic Southern whites who gave us Bush and Cheney?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we get it. Anti-Zionism=anti-Semitism. Criticism of the state of Israel makes you a racist. Sorry, bullshit.

10,000 rockets, and nine or so casualties. Why didn't you mention the number?

The number is low to mid hundreds, not thousands. But it's not implausible it'll get to at least a thousand. Why do you not mention this in your fierce condemnation?
