Selective remorse

So I see this morning that, to quote MSNBC, "Israel expresses 'deep regret' after U.N. strike". Four UN workers were killed by Israeli forces... and gosh darn it, they're sorry. Of course, they're not sorry at all for the hundreds of guiltless Lebanese civilians their army and air force have murdered. All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. Aw, who am I kidding? Clearly the policy of the government of Israel is "some people are more animals than others".

One of these UN workers was a Canadian. Yet again, Israel's so-called attempts to rein in Hezballah, really nothing more than opening up a can o' whoopass on yet another Arab population that can't defend itself, is so shabbily slipshod in its controls as to murder one of our citizens -- and this one an aid worker! But sure as God made little green idiots, Harper's bound to show up on TV and grunt out an absolution. Aw, shucks, Mr. Olmert... he was just a Canadian.

And speaking of Mr. Olmert, he expresses "deep sorrow" and is "awaiting the investigations." Hey, let me save you some money, Ehud. Here's your investigation in a nutshell: your armed forces are 'engaging Hezballah' with all the finesse of a Sardi's busboy clearing tables with a bazooka. That's why you're killing children, foreign visitors, and UN workers. Because really, you don't give a good goddamn. You're engaged in nothing but a colossal dick-swinging display, and you couldn't care less whose cheek gets smacked or how hard. Why do you pretend to be embarrassed to be 'caught' with your pants down?
