Noam Chomsky: Obama's Stance on Gaza Crisis "Approximately the Bush Position"

In a visit to the State Department Thursday, President Obama made his first substantive comments on the Middle East conflict since Israel's attack on Gaza. Obama first mentioned his commitment to Israel's security, without affirming his commitment to Palestinian security. He condemned Palestinian rocket attacks on southern Israeli towns, but didn't criticize the US-backed Israeli bombings of densely populated Gaza. But in a departure from the Bush administration, Obama acknowledged Palestinian suffering and said Gaza's borders should be opened to aid. We speak with MIT professor, Noam Chomsky.

4. The lives (and deaths) of real people usually don't stop for your party.

7. He very accurately said that Obama's stated position was close to Bush's,
he wasn't making some kind of prediction.

8. And Chomskys position on Pol Pot is that he murdered only 25.000 People and thats not that bad ...
So who is worse now ?

Dont get me wrong. Chomsky is a brilliant linguist.

But in politics ?

His stance on the genocide in Cambodia disqalifies him from any comment on such a subject.

5. I saw (or heard) this segment this morning. It was saddening and true.
Bush managed to leave Obama horrible messes in just about every sector of foreign relations.
