It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Pampers' Diplomatic Lunacy

I'm trying to figure out if it's possible for Pampers to be more inept in foreign policy than he is now. Let us consider his response to Russia's invasion of Georgia. What is Pampers' brilliant solution? Convene the United Nations Security Council to pass a resolution...oooooooooh. That'll show 'em. The UN has been so effective in mediating international disputes in the past. They did an excellent job stopping the Syrians from trafficking weapons to Hezbollah in Southern Lebanon. They surpassed all expectation in ending the genocide in Darfur...and the list goes on. Yes, it's just one world saving Cumbayah (George please correct the spelling) moment after another with the UN.

There's only one fly in the brilliant Pampers ointment: Russia is a permanent member of the UNSC with power to veto any resolution brought before it. I'm so pleased to know that Pampers has absolutely no grasp of even the most basic functions of the UNSC. Awesome.

Now for a little lesson in Pampers Speak. When Pampers says, "I have consistently called for..." Georgia to become more involved with the transatlantic institutions, he is really saying, "I have not given this issue one moment's thought. Isn't Georgia where those Palestinian brothers are from?"

Just watch the video.
