If an Israeli preemptive strike against a perceived threat would be legal…

If preemptive war was not against international law, wouldn’t Iran have a good case to launch a preemptive strike on Israel, with all the threats Israel and the US are making against Iran? And while the USG deliberates about how difficult hitting Iranian sites would be, how Iran’s infrastructure is distributed over such a broad expanse, etc, the same cannot be said for not-yet-Greater-Israel. If Western leaders really feared a similarly-lawless Iran, they’d be scrambling to take Israel’s 200+ nuclear arsenal into safekeeping for fear it be set off like a radioactive powder keg. How absolutely shameless to demonize Iran and at the same time count on Iran’s superior morality not to smite its truly corrupt tormentors.

According to media, Israel lawbreaking is criticized, instead of denounced

According to the Western media, Israel’s renewed construction of settlements receives criticism from the community of nations. Does that sound like an appropriate framing of the issue? Moving settlers unto occupied land is against international law. Yet Israel’s actions are “criticized for endangering peace talks” instead of being denounced for being patently illegal.

Imagine if we criticized criminals and debated each time whether what they did was a crime. Nations long ago agreed that wars of aggression were illegal, that seizing land from another was illegal, and certainly displacing one population for another was illegal. Regardless the pretext, because there will always be a pretext.

East Jerusalem has been occupied by Israel since the 1967 war. West Jerusalem is itself territory occupied since Israel’s war of independence, when the Zionists used Arab resistance to the initial UN land grant to seize areas not given Israel by the UN. Now Israel asserts possession of the whole of Jerusalem, on the usual Zionist pretext, that it is land promised them by G-d.

BBC reports how US forces murdered Ossetian civilians in Tskhinvali

south-ossetia-world-mapJust like how the Bush Administration just got though murdering Syrian civilian children in an unlawful attack on a foreign country, the US led forces of Georgia’s US puppet leader, President Mikhail Saakashvili, targeted, attacked, and murdered Ossetian civilians in that area of our world, too. Georgia accused of targeting civilians

And there’s worse, as this despicable US political party, The Republicans, is even running a torturer of Iraqi civilians for Congress! Once again we turn to the British media for a report about this. Allen West oversaw the brutal treatment of an Iraqi. Now he is running for Congress And the Democratic Party went alongside and worked alongside the Republican Party these last 8 years, following their Clinton regime of murder of Iraqi children by ‘sanctions’, their prepping of the lies the Republicans used to invade and occupy the country, and their votes that most often were directly with the Republicans in funding this huge atrocity, all which is now bankrupting our own economy here at home.

Yes, the Democratic Party under Obama, Pelosi, and Clinton, sit by and do absolutely nothing to oppose any of these moves by the Republcian Party, even as these murderous attacks on Syrians and Ossetians seem even to be almost partisan engagements on behalf of trying to get John McCain elected! What a sorry group of louts!
