U.S. Aid to Syria, HPers Scoff

The Huffington Post covered the news that the USA is sending "nonlethal" aid to Syrian rebels. Since we're accustomed to the Huffington Post commenters to be completely and hopelessly obsessed with human rights and international law, I expected the top comments to all be about how the slaughter in Syria has to stop and how both sides need to follow international law.

But, of course, they weren't:

Yes, when it comes to dead Syrians, the HPers are all looking out for number one (and blaming Israel of course). It doesn't get much more hypocritical than that.

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
