U.S. to Battle Anti-Israel Crap in United Nations

How inelegant can diplomacy get? YNET reported:

US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said that the new US administration wants to rejoin the sometimes troubled UN Human Rights Council, to – among other things – "battle the anti-Israel crap."

I don't want the other Rice back, but I'm not sure this one is an improvement. Cluster bombs, white phosphorous, and Obama's 25 day silence on Gaza echoed Bush.

Did Rahm Emanuel or David Axelrod come up the "battle the anti-Israel crap" framing? It sounds IDF tough, the image Rahm wants to project. Emanuel fixed Israeli military vehicles during the first Gulf War.

That doesn't get anyone a soldier slot in today's contracted out military. Leaders are sorry contract managers and politicians hollow word framers. It's a sad reflection on the state of leadership, now displaced by greedership and bleedership.
