That's unacceptable!

On Tuesday, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said,
“The government of Libya has a responsibility to respect the universal rights of the people, including the right to free expression and assembly. Now is the time to stop this unacceptable bloodshed. We are working urgently with friends and partners around the world to convey this message to the Libyan government.”
Danielle Pletka comments:
Her statement, which might have be called tough if it were followed by any sort of action—which it was not—got me to thinking about what is “unacceptable.” Turns out, most of what senior U.S. officials find “unacceptable,” they’re really willing to, you know, accept. Thanks to our rapid reaction research intern Alex Della Rochetta, here is a quick, short list of recent “unacceptable” actions.
Read the whole thing. I shudder to think what else will be 'acceptable' in the future.

By the way, only about half the quotes are from Clinton (who really needs to stop using that word).

Qaddafi merrily continues to slaughter his own people and the best Hillary Clinton can do is muster the diplomatic equivalent of a weak protest.

Somewhere, Qaddafi is laughing his head off!

"Unacceptable" is a word, frequently used by teachers nowadays, when scolding a student for some transgression. The translation is, "Your behaviour is bad, but the law doesn't permit me to punish you more severely."

In other words, use of the word indicates impotence.

The Klintoons have done huge damage, both to America and the US.

She, because of ignorance, greed and stupidity, is obviously unawares that no Arab state recognizes

"the universal rights of the people"

instead, they have concocted the "Cairo Declaration of Human Rights", which subject all human rights under the sharia. That means no human rights at all, Islam rules.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I just can't bare it anymore. This US administration is not only treacherous, incompetent, deceitful and craven to the max, they are also determined to destroy us.
