Subject: Oh geez... Fire that frickin' idiot Colin Powell already!
American Kafir    6/22/2003 12:32:25 PM
Is it just me, or when Colin Powell criticizes Israel for attacking a Hamas leader in his car with a missile attack as "not helpful," do you want to ask him if US forces in Iraq attacking a convoy of luxury vehicles suspected of carrying the illusive Saddam Hussein last week with Hellfire missiles is also "not helpful?" You couldn't pick a more inane person to run the State Department if you cloned a human embryo from one of Forrest Gump's ass hairs...

Your inability to understand the difference between the two situations qualifies for your second paragraph.

Are you Colin Powell, or one of his ass hairs?

Its not as simple as you would like to believe. Secretary of State Colin L. Powell, calling the Islamic militant group Hamas an "enemy of peace," said yesterday it must not be allowed to participate in Palestinian political life even if it dismantles its military wing. ... ... Senior Hamas official Abdel Aziz Rantisi, who was wounded in an Israeli missile strike in Gaza last week, issued a quick response: "Colin Powell proved that he is a real slave to the Zionists, a liar and a hypocrite." Here is the full text in case you are interestd. http://www.washtimes.com/world/20030620-113423-1012r.htm

I've noticed that in Middle Eastern politics, as in American legal battles, when both sides hate you, it is probably because you are on to something.

But what Colin Powell is on is probably a violation of the Controlled Substances Act. If Colin Powell can explain how Americans defending themselves against terrorism is somehow morally, ethically, legally and / or prudentially superior to Israeli efforts to do the same, without evoking some form of intellectualized dementia not seen outside Hannibal Lecter movies, I'll be the first to applaud. But why waste time with that, when we can find someone eminently more qualified to run the State Department?

It's not you, AK. It's sophistry. Par for the course for State. The White House has been more interesting over the past year. You seem to get an occasional criticism, according to the common form, but it's usually followed, within days, by either changing the subject, or some kind of statement supporting something which seems related. That leaves enough for Europe, Araby, and the media to claim that the White House is criticizing Israel, but also enough to wonder if they might not really sympathise. Colin Powell I can't read. I don't know if he's playing bad cop in a good cop bad cop game, or if he's really the sort of bureau-Euro-social democrato who fits, neatly, into the State Department/European Foreign Office environment. For the record, btw, Israeli actions aren't "more or less the same" as American actions. Israel is consistenly less violent and more careful of collateral damage than America has been in Afghanistan and Iraq. Israel attacks with a sniper, or one or two small missiles, where America calls in air strikes which destroy whole convoys of vehicles, rather than one, or take building down below grade, rather than gutting one floor.

The state department, headed by Mr Powell, is also responsible for undermining America's long term strategic interests in return for short term gains. Inspite of better counsel from the Pentagon, State deptt continues to support the biggest terror supporting country in the world--Pakistan. Think I am saying this just because I am an Indian? Consider this: Taliban was created by Pakistan. The 19 terrorists who blew up WTC had their finances traced to Pakistan. Daniel Pearl was murdered when he stumbled upon proof of Al Qaeda-Pak Govt nexus. Pakistan provided Nuke tech to NKorea in return for Missile Tech. Pakistani Nuke scientists were found to have nexus with Al Qaeda guys. Karachi's slums are teeming with more Al Qaeda folks than illegal Mexicans on NY roads. Musharraf promised that he will get rid of terrorism from his soil. What has he delivered till now? Except one hairy sleepy terrorist displayed on TV, Pakistan has given up nothing. And what is US pouring int$o Pakistan? Billions of dollars of aid. 3 Billion pledged just today. Yes, Pakistan helped US in driving the Soviets out of Afghanistan, but what has Pakistan done for you lately? Is America waiting for another 9/11 to convince itself that Pakistan is the real terrorist state? Saudi Arabia might be funding terror, but it is being controlled from Pakistan's backyard, with a tacit approval from Musharraf. Can anybody give one concrete reason why that terrorist, Musharraf is welcomed as a "Strategic Ally" in US?

They should be using something far more imaginative (to Powell) like overwhelming them with unrestrained force. Er...

Hey! It wasnt helpful because at that moment they were trying to get TRUCE. It wasnt helpful because just before that they had those talks... Israelis and palestinians were BOTH warned to avoid provocations and especially- NOT to answer such deeds. There are enemies of peace on both sides and if those who might be willing to have peace are eager to retaliate the strikes which are done by those hardliners on the "other" side there wont be ever peace before other side has been annihilated by another. Israelis can control their hardliners because they have functioning state and they can control their most probable violent force- their army. Jewish terror groups are almost insignificant while Hamas & co are not under the true control of any palestinian leader excluding their own leaders. Thats why Israel is morally and more importantly, practically obliged to hold its horses after peace talks.. They CAN let provocations go without answering them- and therefore help to gain the truce. Thats why when Israelis say that their excecutions without trial are not going to stop before lunatic murder-bombers stop they mean that they do not really want peace- because they KNOW that palestinian hardliners are eager to give them more than one excuse to continue their assassination policy. Anyway- I dont mean that Israelis are not allowed to defend themselves. They have done that pretty well, but regardless of that- they cannot gain peace without sacrifices and the peace cannot last if palestinians cannot agree with it. Compromises.. Colin Powel... The best man you have there.
