Sen. Kirk: Worth Thousands of Lives to Wipe Out Hamas

Efforts to negotiate a ceasefire in Israel’s ongoing invasion of the Gaza Strip aren’t sitting well with Israeli hawks, and by extension that means they aren’t sitting well with the US Congress.

That’s got Congressional officials up in arms, pushing President Obama to stop trying to negotiate a ceasefire in the conflict, and instead to endorse Israel’s war unconditionally, and irrespective of how bad it gets.

Underscoring just how far they’ll go, Sen. Mark Kirk (R – IL) insisted he was totally comfortable with Israel killing thousands of civilians in the current war if it meant wiping out Hamas, saying it was “worth it.”

Israel is already pushing up against 1,000 dead civilians in the ongoing war, and while they’re not even talking about the idea of wiping out Hamas, they are talking up a long war going forward, meaning Sen. Kirk might get his thousands of dead Gazans, albeit not with the elimination of Hamas to go along with it.

Where do you even start with this? Here's a suggestion - stop voting for Democrats. Articles like this show you once again who they are really working for, and it ain't us. These craven bastards have no problem with the wholesale destruction of children. I wrote the following piece for our weekly standup here in NYC this week:

Israel’s Right to Self Destruction – and taking everyone else with her

There is no excuse for Israel’s mass murder of civilians including hundreds of children in Gaza. Look at the objective reality of a modern, technically advanced professional military force butchering a desperately poor, densely packed and cornered population. Hundreds of murdered children, entire families wiped out. Schools, mosques, even UN shelters blown up by the Israelis.
If you make excuses or justifications for this slaughter in the name of anything, you have lost whatever humanity or morality you might have once had.
Americans must understand all this blood is on our hands. Our “ally” Israel has a blank check with us and the whole world knows it. America stands with Israel no matter what she does. In a sane world, friends wouldn’t let friends commit mass murder of civilians. But money politics and racism trump all, and our “leaders” in Congress can’t plaster unanimous measures of support for Israel onto TV fast enough.
America finances almost one quarter of Israel’s entire “defense” budget – we sent them over $3 billion just last year. (Google this: Congressional research service US foreign aid to Israel). This financial and moral hemorrhaging will only increase as the carnage in Gaza is spun into fresh Israeli victimhood.
Don’t get sucked into a sectarian, “culture” based debate on whether all this murder is somehow justifiable and will eventually lead to peace. It isn’t and it can’t. Violence begets violence. Israel’s latest war crimes in Gaza cannot lead to anything but more mass death, with the blowback sure to strike well beyond the Middle East for years to come.

I agree with your post, Dave. Well said!

AIPAC has honed their skills at mass manipulation, and it serves Israel and Wall Street very well.

Finally someone who agrees with me. I refuse to vote for anyone who takes special interest money. I don't care how awful the Republican is. Both of the Wall St. annointed parties are corrupt as a summer day is long and I will not enable them with my precious vote.

I'm so sick and tired of "progressives" spouting all their Republican hate speak, then voting for Democrats like Obama, Pelosi, Reed, who pursue foreign and domestic policies very similar to Republicans.
Vote your hopes, not your fears. Green Party.

And to Dave Wennlund:

You're right on the money, brother!

I'd say they're more like "shills" of the Democratic Party, rather than real progressives.

This is totally brutal and the entire world against Israel on this in-humanity on GAZA. Israel kills thousands of innocent people and most of the people are children and worms. I think America should step in and stop this brutal killing because if they don't then there is chance of world War.
