Israel and Double Standards



Brief post today, but it's a whopper.

Look back to the United States in World War II. We were attacked by Japan, and our war policy was "unconditional surrender." (Yes, include Nazi Germany in that, too)

Israel gets attacked with thousands of rockets launched into her. But she is supposed to "show restraint."

Please tell me why "unconditional surrender" is okay for the United States when it is attacked, but not for Israel when she is attacked.

I'd love some reporter to get the cojones to ask the Secretary of State that, or even the President, if the opportunity arises. Somehow, I don't think they'll do it.

Far too many reporters would rather employ what provides the most sensational coverage even if it's half truths and inuendo. Even more pathetic is that it's what most lemmings want. Most could really care less what the truth is, especially if it doesn't fit into their preconceived mindsets.

This is a trick question, right?

60 more years of whiny leftists.
