Bafflingly Poor Math for a Doctor

Kouchner is becoming quite a buffoon.

French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner was in Gaza yesterday and made a total jerk of himself. Kouchner told reporters that Israel shouldn't inspect trucks from Gaza because 'not all of them are carrying bombs.'
Maybe they should stop scanning luggage at Charles De Gaulle too, since not all of the bags can’t contain bombs too.

So it’s no surprise that when the matter of a Kosovar declaration of independence came up, that the EUtopian complained that this decision ‘was not made in Europe’ and of being soundly ignored by none other than the Kosovars themselves. Kouchner himself was left with the only choice of ‘wishing them luck’, as if he really had to be heard on the matter.

Look, they’re either involved, or they aren’t. If they want to spend another three decades convincing themselves that they matter by triangulating and getting in the way of ‘the adults’, then so be it. They’ll be taken with all the due seriousness that it merits – which is to say the limited respect of nations who have to due to some limited economic dependence on them.

You can ignore them as readily as these flummoxed commenters, who don’t quite realize that if Castro’s regime melts down, the US will have to build a real elective democracy, and real health and education systems there, and make it safe for the pillow biters that Castro’s western fans think are uner the big tent, but fail to notice their repression in “socially just” Cuba.

After all, not all, but only some of them might be jailed for their views, beliefs, or lifestyle.
