American Hypocrisy

by William Skink

American hypocrisy: complaining that Russia is killing civilians along with America’s “moderate” terrorists while bombing a hospital in Afghanistan and a wedding (by proxy) in Yemen.

Enough said.

  2. Some of us learn, and the feeling sets in like a dark cloud, that such incidents are usually not accidents. This one, the hospital, is undeniably deliberate. The idea that a hospital is hiding terrorists and so can be bombed strains the use of the English language. If those in the hospital giving and receiving care are “terrorists,” what are the people who bomb them? The logical word is already taken, another one is not available.

    I was just reading recently about General Curtis LeMay, an American madman who supervised the fuel bombing in Japan prior to Hiroshima/Nagasaki, and a subject of Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove. During one six hour period, it is said that more human beings were killed than in any other time in human history. It is rumored, but not confirmed, that during the military autopsy of JFK, he stood in the balcony supervising.

    “And we call ourselves the human race.” (JFK to Dean Rusk as he exited a JCOS meeting)
