Where is there a Mandela when you need him? Whilst the jingoists are having a field day, and in all probability breaking international law with war crimes, where is the voice of calm and reconciliation? It is almost certainly too soon for this to occur but is there a voice of reason and peace out there? Sunak and Co are queueing up to encourage Israel with offers of military aid – it seems like they are the bullies mates chomping at the bit to join in the carnage and depravity. Two wrongs do not make a right.
I am surprised that the Israeli’s do not have the ability to use precision bombing to take out missle launching sites. maybe they do, but want revenge mafia style.
regarding the guilt of the civilian population I am reminded of the smugglers song by Rudyard Kipling.
