Libya – The West is Best

From the Guardian…..
William Hague, the US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, and the EU foreign affairs chief, Lady Ashton, are due to fly to Geneva on Monday to promote the case for prosecutions of Libyan leaders by the international criminal court. The foreign secretary said: “The message is clear: that there will be a day of reckoning for those guilty of the appalling atrocities. The world will act together to hold them to account.”

Eh?  Wait a fucking minute, are you serious? The countries that are responsible for thousands upon thousands of deaths in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine – shall I continue? – are calling for action within the international criminal court against Libya. What a fucking nerve, really!

Only last week the Obama administration vetoed a UN Security Council Resolution condemning Israel for their continued settlement building program. The hypocrisy is astounding, their shame has no bounds.

Only the week prior was British Prime Minister David Cameron, in Egypt with executives from BAE in tow, out to sell sweets no doubt to the kids on the streets of Cairo.  My man Dub, sent me the following link to a report on Al-Jazeera.  The subject, the estimated 50,000 children that live on the streets.  That’s right, FIFTY THOUSAND.  Getting priorities straight eh people?
