Does anyone remember Guernica?

 If anyone is wondering how much damage a lame-duck administration can manage on its way to historical infamy (or at best, oblivion), here’s what our Secretary of State had to say in response to the IAF attacks on Gaza (reminiscent, to this poor student of history, of the Stuka dive-bomber attacks on civilian populations in Spain and, of course, the savage rape of Lebanon in 2006):

 “The United States strongly condemns the repeated rocket and mortar attacks against Israel and holds Hamas responsible for breaking the ceasefire and for the renewal of violence in Gaza. The ceasefire should be restored immediately. The US calls on all concerned to address the urgent humanitarian needs of the innocent people of Gaza.”
