Humanitarian Pauses

Appreciate the honesty, but everyone else should stop pretending this isn't where the Biden administration is.
Secretary of State Tony Blinken told his Israeli counterparts on Friday that agreeing to a humanitarian pause will help the U.S. fend off growing pressure it is facing over its support of Israel's operation in Gaza and in turn help Israel buy more time for its ground offensive, according to one U.S. and three Israeli officials with direct knowledge of the talks.
Kill fewer people, so you can kill more without people getting so irrationally upset about it.

The Old New Republic (Blinken's first job) is the gift that keeps on giving.
