Israel, the US, and a few errant missiles.
So, I'm pretty convinced at this point that Israel is being run by a bunch of thungs who have *no* regard for human rights or international law. Hell, it's no wonder the US and Israel are in bed with one another; they've got that in common.
Oh yeah, the point: Why did Israel need to fire three air-to-surface missiles from their fancy, US-supplied helicopters in order to kill a quadrupilegic in a wheelchair? Couldn't they have just walked up to him and fired a gun? Yeah yeah, bodyguards.
I ain't saying that the spiritual leader of the Hamas is neccessarily a good guy just because he's in a wheelchair, but I *am* saying that perhaps swinging the biggest sledgehammer you can into a populated area (and next to a *mosque* at that) is going to exacerbate an already tense situation. And I think Sharon knows that.
I also think that the three current pillars of fucking insanity (Being the US, Japan, and Australia) calling for calm amounts to nothing less than apologism and appeasement. It's entirely possible that the entire region of Israel and Palestine should be put under a UN mandate until a new deal can be worked out -- one without a freaking wall dicing up the Palestinians' pint-sized chunks of land into smaller bits, and one that effectively disarms both sides and keeps them from scratching each other's stupid eyes out.
Of course, that would mean that the US *woudn't* have vetoed a UN resolution on Israel. Considering that the US contingent has blocked the last 70-odd UN resolutions against Israel, I don't think that's going to happen.
Which is why I think it's time for a new UN. 'Cause let's face it, the one we got ain't working worth shite.
