    “the most recent intervention in Libya”

    Obama’s Most Excellent Intervention, starring Keanu Reeves.

    “we suggested that the Saudi promise to keep oil below $100/barrel is a vote of confidence over how we’re handling Iran”

    Or it might be meant as a kick in the pants.

    “over in Israel, we wondered whether it might be time to fundamentally rethink the premises of the peace process.”

    Ever since disillusion quickly set in, the premise has been: “Something must be done. The peace process is something. Therefore, …”

    Where was the world, especially the US, when Israel rained down bombs on Lebanon and Gaza?
    Wasn’t that grisly, or does the US only care when Muslims are killed by Muslims?
    And what about the massive horrors visited on Iraq’s Christian community as a result of the US invasion?
    I guess some people are more equal than others.

    [email protected], dear, are you sure you’re responding to the right post? If all you want to do is spout talking points, I’d be happy to provide you with pointers on how to set up your own blog.

    “Where was the world, especially the US, when Israel rained down bombs on Lebanon and Gaza?”

    You somehow neglected to insert the word “unprovokedly.”

    “does the US only care when Muslims are killed by Muslims?”

    As in Bosnia, yes?

    “And what about the massive horrors visited on Iraq’s Christian community as a result of the US invasion?”

    1. Are you suggesting that this was the intention of the U.S., or abetted by it in any way?
    2. Are you deliberately neglecting to mention just who perpetrated the anti-Christian acts?
    3. Are you forgetting that the U.S. invasion put a stop to the “massive horrors” visited on the vast majority of Iraqis?

    And since I’m on a question-asking streak: are you also known as “Anne”?

  • #2 yes, some people must be more equal than others, because somehow when Arabs butcher fellow Arabs, or Kurds (google “Chemical Ali”), or… in job lots it gets a yawn from the same people that scream about collateral damage from Israel defending itself or the US deposing the Butcher of Baghdad.

    This act is getting tiresome.
