How fitting


It would be hard to imagine a more fitting illustration of the Trump presidency than the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem:  at the ceremony, various wealthy and corrupt blowhards of the US and colonial governments make pompous and self-aggrandising speeches, while a short drive away the colonists' security forces are murdering the indigenous darkies who are protesting the event.

It will be interesting to see whether we can distinguish the US government from the Russian or Turkish ones by the time his presidency comes to an end.

Another view.

As long as Israel persists with its current policies, there will be no peace or justice for Palestinians.

But never fear Milt, shortly the usual suspects will be out, labelling as anti-semitic and telling us there was never a Palestine in the first place, and the the "so-called Palestinians" were just itinerant Arabs with no ownership of anything other than a camel, a tent, and a hookah.

There we go, fixed it for you.

Gold Meir had it about right.

"We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”

Glib quotes from the colonists doesn't contribute anything useful.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

CNN sums up the putrid bullshit inherent in this post.

"Mostly peaceful “unarmed Palestinian protesters” in Gaza shoot down Israeli drone."

David said...

Milt, glib quotes is all they've got. Deep down, they know there is no justification for the daily murders carried out by Israel.

Adol in his 1:57 expresses his approval of the use of chemical weapons on civilians. Who knew?

Gerald said...

So Trump is authorising a new embassy which will take 6 years to build but he's having the symbolic opening now. Pessimistic thinking?

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

David your bullshit is juvenile.

The drone was delivering tear gas. The same tear gas the South Australian police would use on you if you behaved in Adelaide the way your Ayrab friends do at the Israeli border.

Psycho Milt said...

Israel's been known to shoot down drones that venture into its air space too.

However, it's not clear how Palestinians shooting down a drone over Gaza that was intended to shower them with tear gas makes it OK for the colonists to murder 60 civilians and injure thousands through a deliberate policy of using live ammunition on protesters. What's the ethical case being made here?

The bottom line is that if the Tangerine Gibbon had just shut up and put his hatred of Obama to one side 60 people would still be alive today. Not a single Palestinian foot touched the sacred soil of Israel and kids with slingshots were facing well dug in snipers with orders to take out those with cameras and potential leaders. This all could have been avoided and there is no glory in it for any country. It is the beginning of the end of the Trump clusterfuck.

I notice President Blowhard's UN rep, Nikki Haley, defended this massacre with the claim “No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has.”

For the record, the governments represented in the chamber included the UK, France, the Netherlands and Sweden, none of which are noteworthy for using live ammunition on protesters. To be fair, most of the other council members also haven't displayed the bizarre kind "restraint" Haley is referring to (for all I know, maybe all of them - I'm not up on the recent history of places like Cote d'Ivoire or Equitorial Guinea).

This is an unnecessarily provocative move designed to create new problems and solve none.

Likewise with a Korean peace deal on the table the Americans suddenly see the need to conduct large military exercises on the North Korean border in order to sabotage it

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Andrei

I understand these exercises are an annual event which have been planned for years but for you, I guess that's 'sudden.'

Snowflake said...

You can always cancel annual events, regardless of how long they’ve been planned. It’s funny watching Trump being led around by the nose by the boy king though. Bolton was a great pick for NSA. Truly the best people.

What’s not funny is seeing how the orange idiot’s clueless and stupid actions caused the deaths of 60 people. And how about the $500m the Trump Org got from China immediately after the buffoon lifted sanctions on ZTE? And the then there’s the porn star he fucked and then paid off two weeks before the election. This is a man for whom Adolt has “nothing but respect”.

Andrei said...

No Adolf - you are given to understand that the exercises had been planned for years by the Washington spin machine

They just had similar exercises a bare three months ago. How many long planned exercises do they need?

Let's see Gaddafi gave up his weapons and what happened to him? We came, we saw, he died (hideous cackle). He died by being sodomized with a bayonet. So as a reward for making nice to the West Nato used its airplanes as an airforce for Islamic terrorists to smash up his country anf ultimately impale him on an eighteen inch blade. So why should anybody trust the West?

And now Donald Trump has unilaterally pulled out of the multiparty Iran agreement again sending the message loud and clear that agreements with the USA are worth nothing, the word of the USA is worth nothing. They are liars and cheats and can not be relied upon to honour their agreements

The USA does not want the Korean peninsular unified and that's a fact. They are intentionally sabotaging North Korea's overtures to the South and then being the pathological liars they are will blame the North for the loss of this opportunity.

Gerald said...

I await in expectation Adolf that your evidence that the compisition of the Victoria Polices tear gas has the same specification as the Isreali product sourced from an Isreali owned company in the US.

Funny that Adolf, I have been a participant in a number of demonstrations, from supporting Dr Bertram Wainer to the Vietnam war era Moratoriums, opposition to nuclear weapons, supporting the rights of Iraqis to determine their national fate, not have one imposed upon them by the Great Satan. I have stood shoulder to shoulder with Trade Unionists. AND NOT ONCE HAVE THE POLICE, EVEN IN BJEKLE-PETERSEN'S POLICE STATE, USED TEARGAS.

I know you're a statist authoritarian at heart, but even you should see the difference between using the military and using civilian police to control demonstrations. Israel is a thuggish nation that should be a pariah among all nations.
