US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s comments on Syrian President Bashar al Asad’s, though true and relevant, smacked of unbridled hypocrisy. Her statement that it was wrong for Asad to kill his own people should have been extended to say ‘that it is America’s job to do the killing of civilians’. Her country has done a terrific job of killing civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan and continues to just that every day. Her government’s support for killing civilians in Palestine is another ‘cap in the feather’ of her nation – which has been at war with one nation or another every day for the past one hundred years.
