Kucinich wants Obama to 'call Israel to an accounting'
cnn.com ^ | June 2, 2010

Posted on 06/04/2010 1:12:07 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, called Wednesday on President Barack Obama "to call Israel to an accounting" for its attack Monday on a Turkish ship that was traveling in international waters laden with humanitarian goods for Gaza.

Israel's conduct "constitutes an act of belligerence against Turkey, which at one time Israel considered an important ally," the Ohio Democrat wrote. "It also undermines United States troops' efforts in Iraq, since your administration's efforts to achieve stability in the region and to withdraw troops from Iraq has depended upon Turkey's cooperation through use of its air bases."

He called for the United States to "begin to redefine its relationship" with Israel and for Israel to face diplomatic and financial consequences for the attack, which killed nine people.

"If our nation fails to act in any substantive way, the United States licenses the violence and we are complicit in it and our own citizens will be forced to pay the consequences," he wrote.

The media is in a tizzy because Rush Limbaugh (aged 59) is marrying a 33 year old woman.

The media doesn’t get upset that Dennis Kookcinich is 63 and married to a 32 year old woman. He’s nearly twice her age, older than Rush, and married to a woman younger than Rush’s spouse.

Somebody needs to remind Dennis the Menace that when Obama gets elected prsident of Israel he can hold them to account. Until then he's just another interloper. Oh, but I guess if el Presidente de Mechico can hold Arizona to account then maybe I'm all wrong.

Kucinich is a little troll who should stay under the bridge. Kucinich says the attack constitutes an act of belligerence agaisnst Turkey a one time ally.

In my opinion Turkey sending the boats to break the blockade constitutes an attack against israel , a one time ally.

Anyway if the attack constitutes anything against either country isnt that their business and not Kucinich’s?

He should stay in Ohio and STFU, little idiot.

No doubt Kucinch, like most other libs, would’ve preferred that the Israeli sailors boarded that 6th vessel unarmed and submitted to fatal beatings by the jihadist crew.

I feel sorry for Kucinich. He doesn’t know his side lost in the public relations this time.

He should stop listening to CNN.

"Turkey, which at one time Israel considered an important ally"

He means back when Turkey was a secular nation and not one bent on joining the rest of the 8th Century theocracies determined to wipe Israel off the map.

Too bad they couldn’t have launched Kookinich on that Falcon rocket this morning so he could rendezvous with his mother ship.

The lefties lost big time. They doubled down on jew hate and lost when the “peace workers” were exposed.

Their journalists have desperately tried to salvage an anti-Israel story line out of this, I read some Turk papers, they are more objective than Kucinich and them. Here Kucinich tries to salvage “the Jews threaten our troops” line.

Such "aberrations" are excused and even expected of Liberals, and even RINOs (like McCain), but Conservatives are held to a different standard.

At least Rush and Dennis are going to marry or have married the ladies. How much younger than Billy Jeff was Monica? (answer he was 49 she was 22) Plus he was her management chain, which makes the fraternization highly improper, regardless of the relative ages.

The incredible arrogance of these people (Kucinich is just a symptom) who demand that we treat a sovereign nation - and an erstwhile ally - like a wayward child...

Sure, we have given them money from time to time, and sold them armaments at close-to market prices - but that does not make them a client-state...

Wait until China starts taking advantage of the tremendous debt that we owe then, and starts dictating our policies and our means of self-defense - although, I have a feeling that, while some will voice outrage, the majority will genuflect and comply....

Maybe he would be happy if Israel just mined the area, warn the ships and let them decide if they want to, either, go to Israel first or try and go through the mine field. It could be their choice.

He is a favorite on Neil Cavuto FNC for laughs.

In 2004 he said he was the only democrat candidate that had a real plan on his website for ending Iraq. His plan?? “”Just leave. Just get on boats and planes and sale away””. It was pretty simple, no worries for Dennis. He also wanted USA to pay Iraq war reparations(for surrendering I assume) ; but since he claimed the country was in civil war I couldn't figure out who he would pay the reparations to.

His plan for unemployment problem??? Lower SS benefits age to 55, that removes them from the unemployed. You don't create jobs, you get rid of the unemployed instead. Simple economics HUH?? SS broke?? He said pay the new SS recipients from TARP money so it cost nothing. (because democrats added TARP 900B to the Bush deficit, it didn't count against democrats so it was free.)

This is not good when duly-elected reps of the USA start to call for a reevaluation of our relationship with Israel. Not good at all.

Yea, but he wasn't that stupid, except when thinking with his little head, which apparently is not that uncommon for him.

Thanks for sharing this sickoflibs - I had no idea he was as nutty as the stuff you wrote about... I had him as "nuts" for other reasons... this takes my breath away.

Cavuto is pretty good because he gets the libs on and puts them on the spot and yet they keep showing up(most of the time he is very polite). I went to Dennis’s website and he indeed post an simple fast evacuation plan for Iraq. I have issues with Bush on Iraq but I know invading a country and then running out is a fast way to destroy our country. Abandoning Vietnam was a disaster for us and them.
