Speaking Truth To Power

Sometimes you just have to have a bit of a scream. This morning my scream was directed at the US Ambassador to the United Nations: Samantha Power. She tweeted about the Dutch Foreign Minister:

Absolutely right: “Moving speech by Dutch FM: To my dying day I won’t understand…that human remains should be used in political game.”

What’s going on right now in Israel? There were 7 soldiers blown up in Gaza. We have 6 complete bodies but Hamas expended huge effort trying to steal some body parts of our soldiers.

Here are my tweets to her




This war needs to continue until the people in Gaza (and their friends all around the world) decide that Hamas’s style of fighting to the last child, woman and elderly man isn’t going to win. Because it isn’t. And every single stupid concession we’ve made “for peace” for the last 60+ years has led to this point.

And anyone still calling for us to stop fighting until we have a surrender from them will ensure this happens again, and again, and again for ever.

The only upside (and it’s a very dim glimmer of an upside) is that we’ve gotten better at defending our civilians faster than they’ve got better at killing them.

As ever, their leadership’s urge for Jihad and conquest is stronger than our urge to slaughter them.
