Opinion from the desk of the Editor:
How about a change of pace? By now most Americans are so confused that they will turn to snack food as a diversion………and the war goes on.
The other day I was doing what I always do…….reading the international news looking for info that would make good posts for this site……and I came across a story about Israel and the US Congress……
I know that Israel is pulling out all stops to try and prevent any actions for their devastating assault on Gaza…..there has even been rumblings of taking them in front of the international courts for their actions. The story I reads was a letter sent by that Israel owned senator Kelley Ayotte….it seems this broad has put together a letter and got a wealth of her buds to sign on and mailed it to John Kerry…..but my fave part was this line…….
U.S. Senators Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and Bob Casey (D-PA), a member of the National Security Working Group, announced that they’ve led a letter signed by 88 senators to Secretary of State John Kerry urging the Administration to take steps to ensure that no assistance is diverted to Hamas, support the Palestinian Authority’s effort to govern in Gaza, and discourage Palestinian unilateral measures at the United Nations and International Criminal Court that bypass direct negotiations and undermine the resumption of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.
You can read the rest of this con job here……
Sounds like they are running scared and are begging the US to pull their butts out of an international fire……after all Israel pays good money for these Americans to do their bidding.
This got me to thinking of past incidents that would make anyone suspicious of their intentions……..
The first incident that I question is the unprovoked attack on a Navy ship, the USS Liberty…..Israel attack the American sigint ship in 1967 killing 34 American sailors and wounding 171……and they got away with it….basically a “oops, my bad”…….Strike One
Next was the Beirut bombing of the Marine barracks in 1983……..the Marines were sent to Beirut by the Reagan admin as a peacekeeping force…….two truck bombs were detonated by a group calling itself “Islamic Jihad” killing 299 soldiers, American and French.
The US spent a couple of years trying to identify the culprits…..we were having little success and the US turned to its only ‘friend’ in the region, Israel. Their intel service, the Moussad, had people in the region and provided intel to the US…..they said that a shi’a cleric named sheikh Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah was the head of Hezbollah and authorized the bombs. The CIA formed a plan to kill this person with a truck bomb……which was detonated killing 80 people and injuring about 200 and none of them was the target……shortly there after the CIA learned the Fadlallah had little to no connection to Hezbollah what so ever. Strike two
The next occasion to use Israeli intel was after the Berlin bombing of the bar La Belle in 1986…..a Libyan agent detonated a bomb in the night club killing and wounding Americans…once again the CIA was tasked into taking out Qaddafi who they identified as the person ordering the hit on Americans. The US came up with a plan to take out the leader at the same time as it was punishing the country for the attack……again the problem was that the CIA had no assets on the ground in Tripoli and they once again turning to their buds at Moussad for help. The day of the attack the Israelis were watching Qaddafi’s compound to make sure he would be working when the hit came….they reported that Qaddafi was working in his tent….with confirmation 3 minutes later the bombs landed on his compound. The raid was a success but Qaddafi was not in his tent at the time. Strike Three.
Those are three strikes against Israel for being a ‘friend’ and ally to the US. Also there have been numerous spies that were Americans working for Israel……
Their, Israel’s, biggest bullshit situation is the one of Iranian nukes……since the early 80’s according to Israeli intel Iran has been from a couple of months to as much as 3 years away from acquiring a nuke weapon…..and so far they still do not have such a weapon. But that does not stop Israel from spreading fear…..recently at the UN BiBi said that Iran was more threatening that ISIS….same old tired lament.
I do not understand the utter acceptance by Americans of Israel….they have proven over and over that they care less about us as a people…….it is time for the US to break its addiction to all things Israeli.
Israel is NO friend…all they see is a wallet stuffed with cash when they look at the US.
Why to we Americans continue to trust a country with a proven track record contrary actions. But America like the good little lap dog that we are and do whatever master Israel wants us to do……..they are GUILTY to crimes against humanity in their war on Gaza.
Americans demanded action for the death of two Americans at the hands of ISIS….but gave Israel a pass for killing 34 Americans….where is the logic there?
The United States needs to STOP trusting anything that Israel says….their contempt for the US is well documented…….
