That is, he wants the Obama administration – the people whose forces have cluster bombed women and children in Yemen, deliberately targeted funerals and rescue workers in Pakistan, carried out several large scale massacres in Afghanistan, and who treat all military aged males in some areas as legitimate targets, to give a small sampling of their ongoing crimes and atrocities – to ‘act’. And from the context of his tweets, and the articles he links to, it seems fairly clear that by ‘act’ he means ‘bomb them, and bomb them now’:
What with Avaaz calling for a ‘no-fly zone’ – something which Philip Breedlove, the senior General within NATO, has described as ‘quite frankly an act of war’, and which the Pentagon says could cause ‘vast numbers’ of civilian casualties – it does seem that certain Establishment ‘humanitarians’ are among the keenest agitators for yet another war in the middle east. Certainly more so than the military men themselves are.
And it feels to me, what with their attempts at rebranding predatory war by powers with horrific and bloody track records as being in some way beneficial to human rights (they did the same with Libya, for example), that these people are leading the human rights movement down a very dark path indeed.
