Linking Kirby's words with Israel's on-the-ground actions . . .


. . . this means that (according to the United States) — killing people happily puts them out of their misery:



Mr. Kirby


Look, we certainly share international concerns about the humanitarian situation in Gaza.


And that’s why the President is literally leading a global effort to increase the flow of humanitarian assistance into Gaza.


In fact, just today, another U.S. military aircraft, a C-17, landed in Egypt carrying 57,000 pounds of food, water, and medicine. And we’re working with the Israelis every single day to keep the level of fuel up going into Gaza.


So, we’re certainly mindful of the suffering of the people of Gaza, and we’re doing everything we can to not just get stuff in there but to lead an actual international effort to get stuff in there.




But do you agree with the assessment that it is on the verge of a full-blown collapse?


Mr. Kirby


I would just say we’re — we’re mindful of the extreme humanitarian suffering inside Gaza, and we’re doing everything we can to — to help alleviate that, including, I would add, continuing to work with our Israeli counterparts to be as cautious, deliberate, and careful as they can in their targeting.

American logic in a nutshell


Dead and dismembered Gazans equals no more suffering.


Except (of course) for everyone who isn't dead yet.


And, in view of Hollow Man Kirby's assurances — we can be certain that the US will assist Israel in more precisely targeting and humanely killing what Zionists openly call vermin.



The moral? — The United States stands with Israel's ethnic cleansing in Gaza


Our herd of corporatist neocons are reliable that way.



It won't hurt a bit, kids.


Be brave.


The US is here to help ya.



Which is why:



The United States vetoed a United Nations resolution Friday backed by almost all other Security Council members and dozens of other nations demanding an immediate humanitarian cease-fire in Gaza.


Supporters called it a terrible day and warned of more civilian deaths and destruction as the war goes into its third month.


The vote in the 15-member council was 13-1, with the United Kingdom abstaining. The United States’ isolated stand reflected a growing fracture between Washington and some of its closest allies over Israel’s monthslong bombardment of Gaza. France and Japan were among those supporting the call for a cease-fire.


Israel’s military campaign has killed more than 17,400 people in Gaza — 70% of them women and children — and wounded more than 46,000, according to the Palestinian territory’s Health Ministry, which says many others are trapped under rubble. The ministry does not differentiate between civilian and combatant deaths.

We see that American Government does not want any space at all between it and the Devil.



And by the way, if you are opposed to the quasi-genocidal slaughter and removal (from ground) of human beings by Israel — you are (according to Congress) an antisemite.


Terminology that overlooks the fact that Arabs and Palestinians are Semites, too.


This semantic idiocy being a reliable indicator of just how stupidly vicious US leaders are.



Be proud. We the People are not only mass murderers. We are stupid mass murderers.
