The US and the Bombing of Gaza. It is Necessary to be Consistent.

By supporting Israel's bombing of civilian homes in Gaza the US government is once again an accomplice to and perpetrator of murder.

The Israeli government has said its bombing of civilian homes is justified because Hamas militants are among those who live inside them.

So would Washington then accept that foreign forces have the right to bomb every US household that includes a member of the US Army?

And would Washington then be ready to provide bombs and aircraft for those home attacks?   Because that is precisely what the US is doing right now in Palestine.
