Hillary Apologises

Some one hundred civilians have just been killed by US forces in Aghanistan but it is alright because the US secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton, has apolgised saying that she, “deeply, deeply” regrets the loss of innocent life apparently caused by the US bombing in Afghanistan.”(1) Now the more cynical of us might want to paraphase the “I deeply, deeply regret” with a “I am really, really sorry”, put the tonic stress on the first syllables of the two adverbs and call Hillary a cynical heartless bastard. Not me and all I am going to say is, what are Amercans doing killing innocent civilians in Afghanistan, what are they doing killing anyone in Afghanistan, indeed, what are they doing in Afghanistan? It is in answering the last part of that question in particular that we will quickly come to the conclusion that they are in Afghanistan to try to facilitate their global hegemony and if innocent men, women and children die along the way then so be it and there is always the “deeply, deeply regret” and “used as human shields” cards to keep the disgusting enterprise on track.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
