Ummm... strange words to stuff into Chomsky's mouth.
Have you read anything he has written? As far as I am aware he has never
said anything like that. He has questioned why one massacre is splashed all
over the news and why another perpetrated by "friends" of US is all but
ignored, but his stand on atrocities is exactly the one you yourself
espouse above.
