This article is NOT about Afghanistan, but one needs to view the following link – and understand the background …. As the Middle East becomes increasingly unstable, (click on and watch the “trailer”) … With this in mind, one can state only the following, with certainty:
The future brings a radically altered Middle Eastern political landscape, it is become increasingly apparent that US influence over events here will be dramatically diminished. Our financial precariousness only complicates the situation!
Even in Israel, the U.S., (once, a strong powerful beneficent ally / leader / partner), has now become a duplicitous influence at best, and is now seen as an imperceptible, wisp of smoke blowing this way and that, with each new wind!
In the midst of this upheaval, the U.S. seems to have no logical, coherent policies, but is that correct? Is it illogical, or is it only being concealed?
Re: Israel, … the U.S. is intent upon establishing a 2-state solution, whether it could bring about peace and stability or not!
With the new rejection of old bed-partners, dictators who solidified post-WWII Middle-East stand-offs, Caroline Glick, of the Jerusalem Post correctly stated:
“By adopting a policy it openly hated and then condemning its own behavior, the US essentially told Israel, America is not a credible partner.”
There is no justification for the U.S. attempting to prohibit building anywhere in Israel, nor is our interference in their other internal decisions, based on any perceptible version of international law!
With an expanding population, openly and aggressively promoting Aliyah, …. to prohibit building is irrational, at best!
For the US to continue to prohibit building, is the antithesis of “nation building” and though we deny it, “nation building” is our long-standing, unofficial policy. Now though, it’s been given over entirely to:
- the leftist State Department,
- radical revolutionary organizations,
- and mega-wealthy, mega-manipulator, Soros types,
– – – an unholy alliance if ever there was one, all done, …. as if they know best! They certainly don’t! It lends an understanding though, to what is going on behind the scenes! Both Obama and Sec’y of State Hillary, are taking orders from the same “puppet manipulator”.
With this seeming vacuum of leadership, Arab nations could and may easily descend back into the “caliphate vs. Crusader mentality”, plunging the entire world, once again, into world war!
What’s unseen is that the caliphate has as it’s number 1 enemy, to be destroyed first, ….. is us …. The US!
But, to advance this aim, destabilization of the Middle East is a priority! The Palestinians seek to isolate Israel internationally by criminalizing it in international arenas in the UN. The Palestinians have made intense use of all UN bodies to achieve their goal while Iran and other Arab nations are expanding their sphere of influence – even working with Venezuela, a Fidel-like nation, …. all this, as Russia guides it from behind the curtain with Soros.
How many people are aware of the fact that Russia, angered about its defeat in Afghanistan, realizing we manipulated their defeat from behind the scene, (If you don’t know, see: Charlie Wilson’s War) ….. how many are aware of Russia’s fervent push to renew it’s military machine.
Pardon my cynacism, but Americans would rather watch “Two and a 1/2 men” or are setting aside time for March Madness.
Since the Palestinians first began using the UN to criminalize Israel, back in the 1970s, it has been the consistent policy of all US administrations to use the Security Council veto to vote down anti-Israel initiatives.
But then came US President Barack Obama – his stated interest in reconciling the US with the anti- American and anti-Israel majorities in all UN bodies, not unlike Clinton, it’s all coming apart at the seams!
With that stated intent, Obama’s refused to commit himself to using the veto to prevent the criminalization of Israel which to the Arab states seems to be cowardice!
Yet, as if he is a peacemaker, once entering office, the president has been outspoken in his view that Jews must be denied their property rights in Jerusalem neighborhoods outside the 1949 armistice lines, and in Judea and Samaria.
In the weeks leading up to the UN vote, both houses of the US Congress made it absolutely clear to Obama that abandoning Israel would be unacceptable.
It must have cut Obama and Clinton to the core when they received letter after letter signed by hundreds of congressmen and scores of senators demanding that he stand with Israel.
Recognizing the legislators were simply reflecting the overwhelming support Israel enjoys from the American public, Obama was forced to veto the resolution.
That said, ……. I urge the public to watch closely, for what he does is often, not public! HE IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED!
