You are going to make me stop saying that it is harder to hate the person who would have done this shit than it is to hate the person who is actually doing this shit. Not that I am a hater.

'Cluster humanitarianism' is a keeper.

Kind of brings new meaning to the term clusterfucked. Or perhaps for our SOS and other Admin officials - clusterfuckers.

Well done! You should also include alleged use of US-made cluster munitions by Israel in Lebanon for extra goodness.

The drone flights in Libyan urban areas will be invaluable preparation for their planned use over American cities.

Thanks, Peter. Given that Hillary was the focus I considered tracking down a quote of hers about Israel's "completely immoral" (according to the UN's Undersecretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs) use of cluster bombs in Lebanon in 2006, but I decided to stick with more direct examples.

Joe: Good one. One thing that struck me about Clinton's statement was the implicit notion that bombing somehow becomes less inhuman or vicious as long as you do it to people outside your own borders.

One wonders which government would not use force "against its own people" if those people were in open armed rebellion and being given material, tactical, financial and air support by numerous foreign powers.

When seeing the name "Clinton" I would also be reminded in this situation of the word "Waco."

Happy Easter, everybody.

You are the best. You are the worst. You are average. Your love is a part of you. You try to give it away because you cannot bear its radiance, but you cannot separate it from yourself. To understand your fellow humans, you must understand why you give them your love. You must realize that hate is but a crime-ridden subdivision of love. You must reclaim what you never lost. You must take leave of your sanity, and yet be fully responsible for your actions." -Gnarls Barkley, in a letter to the legendary rock critic Lester Bangs
