LONDON, England (AP) -- The United States wants other nations to cut off aid to a Hamas-led Palestinian government, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said ahead of an international strategy session on Mideast peace prospects.
Rice ruled out any U.S. financial assistance to a Hamas government.
Whether or not the U.S. or any other country provides financial assistance to Palestine or anyone else is not really my contention. What amazes me is how this government claims to love freedom so much, yet throws a hissy fit everytime something they don't like happens.
It's amazing that the morons running this country couldn't forsee this happening, but if you really want to spread democracy, as El Presidento Bunnypants keeps claiming he wants to, then you have to take the good with the bad.
You also have to allow these people to figure out what works for them. Maybe HAMAS will provide good and legitimate leadership, maybe they won't, then according to democratic principles they'll be voted out (though it isn't presently working here). Its not as if other political parties in the past didn't get into land struggles early in their conception.
And as we discussed earlier, it's a tad bit hypocritical of Israel to get in wad over this since they were instrumental in founding HAMAS.
Let's be honest here. The issue is NOT that HAMAS has been invovled in terrorism. The issue is that we didn't get our puppet and Condi knows there is no way that they can control an organization like HAMAS.
When this admin gets its head out of its ass and realizes everything they touch turns to shit a real peace process might develop, but that is unlikely since all parties involved are more than happy to maintain power via fear and violence.
This is what happens when you meddle in things that are none of your business.
