What is happening in Libya makes me sick to my guts and gives a strong desire to scream insults at somebody. And yet, when I saw these headlines today I really had to laugh. Here are the headlines, verbatim (typo included):
- Arab League criticises Western strikes on Libya
- Russia criticizes Western military intervention in Libya
- China Criticizes the Allied Attacks against Libya
When I read this I just had to laugh and admit that the outraged criticisms from these folks had a certain virtuosity which is uniquely devoid of any sense of shame.
I think that it would be only fair and pay them the ultimate compliment by declaring that the Arab League, Russia and China have succeeded in displaying an “Israeli-like” level of hypocrisy! Not an easy feat, that is for sure.
