A Civilized Power
Jan 07, 2009
Some perspective on Israel and war. From a comment:
the Palestinians don't deserve one iota of sympathy for the fact that their attacks are getting deadlier responses. You don't wage war on a modern military power's civilian population and then go crying to mommy when they see your pathetic, 19th century weapons and up the ante with 21st century firepower.
If the Ukrainians, Kazakhs or Mongols did this crap to Russia, and the Russians responded by carpet-bombing their capitol city into rubble, I doubt you'd hear more than a "golly, that was rough" out of the UN. By all rights, the Palestinians are blessed that their neighbors are Westernized Jews, not Russians or Chinese.
