Abrams’ Melian dialogue

Former DIA officer Pat Lang brings us more evidence of the neo-cons’ disastrous role in the Middle East in the shape of an essay by distinguished Palestinian doctor Eyad Sarraj:

Last year, I was among a small group
of Palestinians that met Elliott Abrams, President George Bush’s deputy national
security adviser. He was blunt that the Hamas government, which was
democratically elected, must be pushed out at any cost. We’re not Hamas
followers, but we tried to persuade him and other officials that engagement,
rather than confrontation, is the better choice; but their determination was
unshakable. We warned there would be suffering and starvation and even armed
conflict, but to no avail. It wouldn’t be the fault of the U.S. if that
happened, he said. (Sic Semper Tyrannis)
