That Heinous Flotilla

I cannot help but wonder what planet the people governing us live on when on one hand they find it necessary to enter into a third armed conflict, spending millions of dollars to “protect human lives” in Libya, while at the same time they are saying that “we do not believe that the flotilla is a necessary or useful effort to try to assist the people of Gaza” who are literally starving to death.

I know that their definition of self defense is different than mine, given that they believe we are defending ourselves from terrorists by killing people in Afghanistan, and that is further confirmed when Hillary Clinton opines that “…we think that it’s not helpful for there to be flotillas that try to provoke actions by entering into Israeli waters and creating a situation in which the Israelis have the right to defend themselves.” Israel needs to “defend itself” from an unarmed flotilla carrying food and medicine.
