Biden's National Security Advisor is so crooked he could not possible lie in bed straight. Nor would it have been possible for him to have maintained a straight face while insisting that there is no evidence that the Kapos have been perpetrating deliberate war crimes.
Kirby's brazen lie came after both Mexico and Chile had requested an investigation by the International Criminal Court.
That is on a par with other conspiracy theories such as there is no evidence of a moon landing; none either for the world being older than 6000 years in age; or for Elvis not being alive and well, playing secret gigs in Memphis Tennessee.
That sort of spurious nonsense is something we are familiar with from religious whackjobs whose blindness is as obvious as the evidence they blind themselves to. David Icke must be thinking he has a rival seeking to seize his own crazy crown.
The Biden administration has never balked from accusing Russia of war crimes. Yet the atrocities perpetrated by Putin pale when juxtaposed to those of Netanyahu. It is this hypocrisy, downright dissembling and purveying of fake news that has led to predictions that Gaza will be the grave of the Western-led world order. If Putin's authoritarianism is much less brutal than Biden's liberal democracy, and in a situation where democracy is incapable of delivering justice, there seems every need to protect Western values from Western leaders.
Last week I attended a vigil in Drogheda in support of those Gazans currently being subjected to Israeli war crimes. Perchance, I ended up performing the function of MC. It was an honour to step in at a moment's notice although very much an honour I would prefer never to have reason to perform. My task was more like a continuity presenter, with the heavy lifting falling the way of the speakers. Representatives from Connolly Youth, the Irish Labour Party as well as parents were amongst those I was privilege to introduce.
As I was going through my words my eyes fell on my own son among the people gathered. I stated that so many in Gaza never got to make it to his age, butchered by the Kapos. I spoke to him after it, saying it was a freezing day. Not nearly as cold as Gaza, his response.
In less than ten minutes, I will leave the house to join today's vigil. To me it is important that Drogheda Stands With Palestine.
