From the same geniuses who brought you the reset button, the crusade to kill Honduran democracy, and the profuse groveling toward China over our human rights’ abuses, get ready for the latest and greatest: the Obama administration plans to bring stability to the Middle East by -how else?- strengthening moderate elements in the genocide-minded Hizbullah:
The Obama administration is looking for ways to build up “moderate elements” within the Lebanese Hezbollah guerilla movement and to diminish the influence of hard-liners, a top White House official said on Tuesday.
“Hezbollah is a very interesting organization,” [John] Brennan told a Washington conference, citing its evolution from “purely a terrorist organization” to a militia to an organization that now has members within the parliament and the cabinet.
“There is certainly the elements of Hezbollah that are truly a concern to us what they’re doing. And what we need to do is to find ways to diminish their influence within the organization and to try to build up the more moderate elements,” Brennan said.
He did not spell out how Washington hoped to promote “moderate elements” given that the organization is branded a “foreign terrorist organization” by the United States.
Gee, I can just see all that CIA money being funneled to prop up these “moderates,” who will be struggling to suppress their guffaws as they pass the dough along to their non-moderate brethren, who will then turn around and buy more missiles from Iran with which to kill Jews.
This is like the British and the French trying to find “moderate Nazis” in the late 1930s. How’d that work out?
We’re lead either by naive children or blundering morons and, regardless, it looks to end badly.
