I wasn't referring to any specific leaders. I was simply refuting the general notion that Oz is trying to promote that you have to judiciously spread support evenly to all nations.

Seems like these conservatives just love to spread the wealth!

I meant Oz.. not specific leaders..

And I agree with your point.

Hypocrites have a hard time justifying their position.

Perhaps I shouldn't have to?

Is that better?

Most any military person will tell you that lobbing missiles is not Humanitarian aid. I mean really? Is that what we've become as a country?

Ditto. There was no response to my questons on the leadership and situation in Sana, Manama, etc. Bed time. Its not worth my sleep trying to talk to a brick wall.

Defeat?

Your position is based upon the selective application of 'outrage' at the killing of civilians but only when done by certain nations and only when it is convenient....

THAT is an embarrassing position to have.

Well you are another one who seems to selectively apply your 'outrage'...when it suits you,killing of civilians is grounds for attacking another nation.

Other times,not so much.

I am sorry my answers weren't convenient for your position.
