    Default The Apocalypse is Near

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080424/...l_palestinians

    I never imagined the US, Great Britain, and France walking together on anything. This just blows my historically oriented mind away. I...I need moment...

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    UNITED NATIONS - Libya's deputy ambassador to the United Nations confirmed Thursday that he compared the situation in Gaza to Nazi concentration camps, but toughened his language and said matters are actually "worse" in Gaza.


    Ibrahim Dabbashi said Wednesday during a closed Security Council meeting that the situation in Gaza is as bad as concentration camps in Nazi Germany, according to diplomats present. The remarks led the United States, Britain, France and others to walk out, a rare protest by members of the U.N.'s most powerful body against one of their own members.

    Who would have thought that the UN was holding a Moron-a-thon this close to the olympics?

    It is pointless to listen to anything coming out of that festering pile.

    Action against hyperbole is paramount. Let us unite against exaggeration. Allow no overstatement to stand unchallenged. By God and his Angels we will not let bad grammar pass for we are the Victors of Vernacularity!

    We don't give a rat's patuckus if the people of Gaza/Darfur/Rwanda/anywhere are slaughtered, but that, of course, is a lesser matter.

    Long live the Alliance!

    Why are you guys always thinking the worst of other people? As if anybody was listening to the speaker in front during yet another boring meeting. Who pays attention to what is said during a meeting anyway?

    Maybe they just walked out because they were hungry and the fries were ready?

    Funny guy, he should talk to Dinnerjacket and learn that those camps never existed so basically it can't be that bad in Ghaza anyway.

    Well they don't seem to be taking them too seriously if everyone just walks out because Ibrahim Dabbashi made a slightly insensitive remark.

    They should stop huffing and get on with actually trying to sort the issue.

    I wonder how much research that the guy has actually put into knowing what concentration camps were about. My guess is very little.

    Was the guy making a big statement or just this little contraversial bit, we should be working with them to sort out the issue rather than trying to define it, the guy overexagerated his point, people mention the nazis all the time in political argument (see theres another mention) although hes obviously wrong.

    Its nice UK, USA and france can all agree on something, next time it may even be constructive or helpful....

    I thought Tony was sorting it all out with, like, ya know, getting the guys to be nicer to each other!
    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.”

    To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise.
