Once upon a time, Americans would have had the stones to do something about the kidnapping of a former Congresswoman

no shit, professor cole...
US hostages held in foreign country on Fourth of July, including a former Congresswoman, after having been captured in a naked act of piracy in international waters after the Americans attempted to respond to a crisis provoked by crimes against humanity, as detailed by Amnesty International.

Once upon a time, Americans would have had the guts to mind such a thing.

Gazans and other Palestinians under Israeli occupation do not enjoy "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," and have not been able to "institute" a "government" of their own to secure those rights. The occupation authority that rules them does not derive its "powers" from the "consent of the government." The occupation government has become destructive to these ends. I think we know what the American Founding Fathers would say the Palestinians need.

not only do we no longer have the guts to do what should be done and more than enough "courage" to do things we absolutely SHOULDN'T do, we also don't even bother to give outrages like this any media attention...

muy, muy pat├ętico...
