An exact measure of the hypocrisy and hatred embedded in the national policy of a country is the degree to which that country rationalizes away diplomacy.
Hence, guess who is spitting on diplomacy in the Middle East? Not just Bush, but also his neocon “advisors” who are all of a piece with the Israeli lunatic fringe right wing and who have been wagging American foreign policy like a dog wags a tail for the last 8+ years. And of course McCain -- at least when he manages to string together a few words into a quasi sentence.
Certainly, the core policy of nearly ALL Middle Eastern countries is murder in the name of God -- exactly the same policy as our of own country's lunatic fringe right wing (e.g., the Christian Right religious fanatics!).
So pretty much it all comes down to:
(a.) national/international diplomacy
(b.) or, murder in the name of God genocide and the Have and Have Not horror
How have we come to this total insanity? Greed and hatred. Hatred and greed. The vampire rich are pulling the strings of EVERYTHING, not only in America, but all over the planet. Doesn't aids in Africa look like genocide to you? European whites annihilating African blacks. And isn't a smaller version of exactly the same thing what the Bush Family (yes, the whole bloody bunch of executioners) did to New Orleans? Oops, too many blacks again.
It only takes the IQ of an amphibian to realize that if the planet would only "give diplomacy a chance" (as they used to say about love); most national and international conflicts would be resolved in a matter of weeks. The infinite tragedy is that this is NOT an exaggeration. This is reality. This is what would actually, factually happen.
