I hate it when I get caught out doing it. And I do it a lot. I should not be considered a role model.
But I most especially hate it when whole countries do it.
Now, I should point out in advance that not everyone in the country is as much a bunch of pricks as the guys heading the place up, but, geez, this is pure evil on a massive scale. And I have met citizens of this country who are quite nice people. They are certainly not in power at the moment.
Evil imperialist cu^ts are in control, and there is seemingly no end to the idiocy that is manifest.
And I for one can see this one escalating out of control. Possibly even to World War 3.
So lets look at the country in question:
The State of Israel.
A nation of about seven million people.
One of the world's truly historical places.
It's capital, Jerusalem, is holy to three rather large religions.
And no matter how much Israeli apologists in the media such as Rupert Murdoch play Israel as THE underdog of the world stage, Israel still manages to come out of most situations looking aggressive and nasty.
Israel has been its own worst enemy and cannot do anything right. Its domestic policy since the late 1990's has been a disaster.
I mean, seriously, how in fuck's name can this country endorse such wonderful policy decisions as opening fire on a gang of rock-throwing kids?
Flattening an entire Palestinian town because two Israeli soldiers were lynched.
So there is this history of overreaction from the Israeli authorities.
And there appears to be no guilt. At no point does anyone in the Israeli government think, or say publicly, anyway, "This is massively, overwhelmingly wrong."
So we have three Israeli soldiers abducted by Hezbollah in the last week.
Sure enough, Israel goes nuts.
But this time, nuts is an understatement. They appear to have said:
"Let's just torch Lebanon to the ground. Hezbollah are Lebanese, aren't they?"
Notorious pro-Israeli trouser-wearer, Colin Rubenstein, Executive Director of the Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council writes in Crikey the following:
"This war is not against the Lebanese people but against Hezbollah."
Really? Well then, why target Lebanese civilians in the process?
On the same day, Antony Loewenstein, blogger, journalist and author of the forthcoming My Israel Question wrote, also in Crikey, the following:
"The Jewish state aims to redesign the Middle East through the barrel of a gun, imposing its will through the killing of civilians and destruction of civilian infrastructure."
This may be overstating things a tad.
However, what we do know is that as long as Israel has the USA for backup, they will continue to go berzerk at every little thing.
And they do. Dubya's microphone gaff shows that in the eyes of the USA, nothing is ever Israel's fault.
Rubenstein appears to believe, along with most conservative Israeli commentators that Israel is not responsible for attempting to bomb Lebanon back to the stone age.
Rubenstein is clearly an idiot.
What is a concern, however, is that Israel likes to invoke the Mugabe defence whenever things aren't going her way.
It's always Syria's or Iran's fault. Or Hamas, or Hezbollah.
What makes it worse is the speed of the accusation of "antisemitism".
Antisemitism is an ugly word that is used as a particularly effective red herring. It stifles debate, and if you proceed with even legitimate criticism, you are tarred with a brush which colours any credibility you might have had in a light shade of mud.
Israel, and Israeli apologists are very much adept at using this red herring. And, as with Mugabe, it gets tiresome after a while.
And if Israel do it too often, people notice.
Methinks Israel doth protesteth too much.
