Orwell award to Nicholas Burns

Beirut refugees

The US State Department's Nicholas Burns declared that the ceasefire requested by the G8 is not a ceasefire request.

You'll remember all the handwringing and condemnations when Rafik Hariri was assassinated. Half of Lebanon is up in smoke and not one word from the hypocrites and worshipers of the double standard in Washington.
