Israel's Primer Minister Olmert Tells European Plutocrats To 'Get A Grip.'

Bloviating European plutocrats quacking over unfortunate civilian deaths in Lebanon overlook their own responsibility in civilian deaths in recent conflicts....
"Where do they get the right to preach to Israel?" Olmert said when asked about criticism from European capitals of Israeli military operations that have led to a heavy civilian toll.

"European countries attacked Kosovo and killed ten thousand civilians. Ten thousand! And none of these countries had to suffer before that from a single rocket.

"I'm not saying it was wrong to intervene in Kosovo. But please: Don't preach to us about the treatment of civilians."
Of course, mooing Europeans hide behind the consensus actors such as the UN and NATO so that they can plausibly deny responsibility for any action what-so-ever. But Olmert has it right, these clowns are not looking at this conflict through anything but muck-caked glasses.
