No, I'm ridiculing the stupidity, dishonesty and hypocrisy
Ironic, given how stupid, dishonest, and hypocritical it is to criticize the US, when it was China and Russia who vetoed a resolution to try and stop helpless civilians being shot in the streets of Syria.
Seriously. China and Russia veto a resolution to stop the bloodshed in Syria... and you are still looking at the tree of "previous American actions" instead of the actual forest of "dead Syrian civilians"?
I'm ridiculing you
for your blatant and stupid manipulation of an issue for political brownie points.
The Arab League also called for an end to the invasion of Lebanon,as well as the Gaza Massacre,
And see what I said about this being nothing more than a blatant attempt to get around the IvP moratorium? Ain't biting.
Oh, and comparing this to what the US does is perfectly valid. How many people have died in Syria compared to the ones that died in Iraq due to a botched US invasion. If the latter was much less than the former, then you might have a point. It doesn't absolve China or Russia, but it does highlight a double standard thats being held.
It's not really comparable, with Iraq; but it's true that it's comparable with other US actions involving the UN security council.
Nonetheless, are you really going to focus on the double standard, as opposed to the very real issue - which is the fact that Syria is shooting up its own people?
Besides which, was anyone ridiculing other countries when they get mad at the US for vetoing other UN resolutions? By that standard, we should ridicule every state
that complains about the US whenever it uses their veto.
Again, it's pretty silly to focus on this chickenshit issue just to score political brownie points. Russia and China decided to be dicks. The Syrian people still need help. That's the big issues.
