newspeak meaning Edit
Unhelpful is used for a political or military action by a (normally less-powerful) country that is allied to our own, and which causes widespread suffering, often including deadly war crimes. It is used in situations in which the destruction, injustice and suffering cannot be flatly denied. In these circumstances the term unhelpful is used to give the impression of rebuke.
Hilary Clinton (US secretary of state) declared in March 2009 that the demolition of dozens of Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem by Israel was "unhelpful". CBS news report
