No better than Hitler!

The State Department is investigating whether Israel’s use of American-made cluster bombs in southern Lebanon violated secret agreements with the United States that restrict when it can employ such weapons, two officials said.

Violated? 1,183 Lebanese killed and 4,054 wounded, most of them civilians, and the State Department is in doubt?

The investigation began after reports that three types of American cluster munitions, anti-personnel weapons that spray bomblets over a wide area, have been found in many areas of southern Lebanon and were responsible for civilian casualties.

Officials say it is unlikely that Israel will be found to have violated a separate agreement, the Arms Export Control Act, which requires foreign governments that receive American weapons to use them for legitimate self-defense. Proving that Israel’s campaign against Hezbollah did not constitute self-defense would be difficult, especially in view of President Bush’s publicly announced support for Israel’s action after Hezbollah fighters attacked across the border, the officials said.

Even if Israel is found to have violated the classified agreement covering cluster bombs, it is not clear what actions the United States might take.

Other than a “strong condemnation” of such Nazism, no further action will be taken against the Nazi Israelis! Imagine if Iran or an Arab state were found to have used something close tosuch weapons!

Would the United States stay silent or would it not immediately call for world-sanctions or even go as far as bombing the country in question?

Shame on what we call “Justice and Democracy!”

Our President is no better than Hitler or Bin Laden!
