Freedonia's Going to WAR!

Well, at least Israel is.

You know, I've always had some doubts about our country's relationship with the State of Israel, since Truman recognized the new country in 1948. We have been Israel's greatest friend, supplying it with more money and weapons than any other country to which we offer foreign aid.

And yet this tiny sliver of a nation, with its abusive and sometimes draconian treatment of its minorities and its cavalier attitude toward spying on us (and that's not to mention the USS Liberty incident) treats us like the bottom boy in this relationship - and we let them do it.

Now, with the latest scuffle going on in Lebanon, we are being The Bitch again, talking big about seeking a diplomatic solution while at the same time expediting a shipment of bunker-busting precision guided munitions.

If Israel wants to act like the 800-pound Gorilla in the Middle East, that's fine - but not on my tax dollars, thank you. Perhaps some of those filthy rich Christian Dominionist Millenniarist fascisti would like to pass the hat among their deluded followers and take up the burden of feeding bombs and guns into Israel's capacious maw.

It's beyond my understanding what we see going on over there. Now the US refuses to call for a cease fire. Seems they don't mind the murders going on and on.
