NO REAL CHANGE!

Just so all of you that are upset because “As The World Turns” soap opera gave us all President Elect Tweet as President of the United States, there is STILL regular old world sanity to draw from to provide solace.

Nothing really has changed in the realm of extreme hypocrisy coming out of the U.S.

Our very own State Department is trained to maintain a very polished form of hypocrisy. And you may even marvel just how shiny it appears. Tubularsock personally recommends Bar Keepers Friend cleaner to keep down soap scum buildup. And dare say the Department of State has its full share of it while attempting to make America squeaky clean.

Just this week United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power who is pretty high on the “scum-as-you-are-list” accused 13 Syrian commanders and prison officials of responsibility for attacks on cities, residential areas and civilian infrastructure as well as acts of torture in Syria.

Now there is nothing new in that and the same old bad guys Assad and Russia were behind it all. And the fact that the U.S. is bombing Syria without any permission to be there and Russia was asked to come help Syria from being overthrown by the U.S. all seems to be lost on Samantha.

Powers may do well to read the definition of war crimes and one of those definitions centers around countries attacking other countries unprovoked. Now just who should be tried for that in Syria?

But here is the fun part for Tubularsock which makes Samantha such a riot!

She had the nerve to say aloud in front of others that, “The United States also knows where torture allegedly takes place in Syria.”

Well Samantha, the U.S. out of all the players in this conflict WOULD KNOW WHERE THE TORTURE TAKES PLACE IN SYRIA. Do you think it could be in the same locations of the “black-sites” the CIA used to torture under George W. Bush?

Funny that George W. Bush isn’t anyplace on this list you are handing out. Perhaps a bureaucratic oversight.

Now one has to wonder how we have gotten here. A few years back Assad was cooperating with Bush’s CIA to conduct torture for the U.S. and now we are wanting to try them for bombing “our side”.  And people think this Trump Thing is weird.

By now my fellow readers you know that when you are dealing with the U.S. hypocrisy it is always compounded. So the other aspect of this entire Samantha-in-fantasy-land is the International Criminal Court.

The detailed allegations seemed to be aimed at laying the groundwork for future war crimes prosecutions and could be the Obama administration’s 11th hour attempt to hold the Syrian government accountable for alleged atrocities while at the same time not noticing the American mirror image in this entire mess.

And here is the funny part, “. . . some time ago the United States backed out of being any part of the ICC because in signing into the agreement would make the U.S. responsible for its own actions and could be indicted by the ICC for crimes against humanity!

So Samantha Power is setting Syria up for crimes against humanity in a set up where the United States is immune!

AND PEOPLE THINK TRUMP IS POMPOUS?

COULD IT BE AN AMERICAN TRAIT?
