All the politicians making crazy sounds.
Gaza crisis: Kerry rushes to Cairo, but does he have a strategy?
Kerry appeared to be chomping at the bit before he dashed to Cairo, hoping to end the bloodshed in the Gaza Strip. The cost of failure is high, some experts say.
What’s the point in rushing to the Middle East when you have no plan, unless of course you are a grandstanding sociopath. And why is the cost of failure high when it’s not our battle? Tell me again why the US simply must get involved in every conflict?
And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds.
Does it really matter if it’s a Palestinian or Israeli mother sobbing hysterically over her dead son’s body? Does Hamas even care about the innocent Palestinian lives it is putting in danger by continuing to lob rockets in a battle it can’t win? Israel’s psychotic overreaction guarantees more suicide bombers as does Israelis sitting outside watching the fun as Palestinian children get killed. Have they all just gone fucking insane? And then there’s Ukraine…
Of such shrieking lunacy, nihilism is born.
“Because when the smack begins to flow
I really don’t care anymore
About all the Jim-Jims in this town
All the politicians makin’ crazy sounds
And everybody puttin’ everybody else down
And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds”
— Heroin, The Velvet Underground
Great lyrics, even if drugs are no answer. But you knew that. Lordy, we are living in deranged times.
