I don’t have anything particularly useful to say on this, except that I notice how many conservatives who a few weeks ago were using drone bomb attacks on civilians in Afghanistan as an argument against re-electing Obama (as if Romney wouldn’t have just kept right on doing the same) are currently falling all over themselves to make excuses for Israel bombing civilians in Gaza while trying very hard to simultaneously condemn Hamas bombing civilians in Israel.
Seems to me that there’s plenty of blame and shame to go around for anybody who offers justifications for bombing civilians anywhere.
What’s piqued your media interests lately?
As usual for media circus threads, please share your bouquets and brickbats for particular items in the mass media, or highlight cogent analysis elsewhere, on any current sociopolitical issue (the theme of each edition is merely for discussion-starter purposes – all current news items are on topic!).
