John Bolton - Morality Expert

Lebanon civilian deaths morally not same as terror victims -- Bolton

Someone just smack him in his stupid moustache, please?

John Bolton:

"It's simply not the same thing to say that it's the same act to deliberately target innocent civilians, to desire their deaths, to fire rockets and use explosive devices or kidnapping versus the sad and highly unfortunate consequences of self-defense."

And what part of what Israel is doing can be called "self-defense?"

Israel sent troops across the border. They were captured. A prisoner exchange was demanded. Isreal (extremely rapidly almost as if it was all pre-planned) enforced a naval blockade, and already had assets in position ready to strike at Hizbullah sites. They also destroyed most of the civilian infrastructure and about 200 civilians so far. I think they are getting ready for ground troops to swoop in and try to tighten the noose around Hizbullah "once and for all." What part of this is self-defense? Tell it to all the Americans still stranded there, being extorted by their own government and now have to rely on Syria to save them.

(Don't think I'm just anti-Israel. I think every regime in the region is guilty as sin. All sides commit atrocities and no side is innocent. The only innocent ones are the slain civilians. Maybe you could ask Johnny A-list if he doesn't have a problem with all the slain civilians that would have come from the expansion and escalation of this war that he seems to favor.)
