Israel’s war policy: “America did it!”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jane Stillwater @ 3:56 pm

Remember back when you were growing up? That time you did something that was a no-no and your mom caught you in the act? And you blamed it on your older brother who was already in Big Trouble for something else anyway? “He did it!” you cried. And your mother actually believed you?

I just went to a conference in Washington DC (braving 60 mph winds BTW) and the speakers had some very interesting things to say. “Israeli neo-cons want a war on Iran so badly they can taste it,” one speaker told us. “But if the Israelis can get the Americans to make the first move, then that’s a good thing for them. Why? Because the world already hates America because of Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Syria, etc. So if America attacks Iran, then the Isreali neo-cons’ hands are clean.”

Good thinking there, neo-cons. Mom will never know!

Then another speaker, a military guy, talked about what a war on Iran would actually be like. Not a pretty picture. “Imagine the war on Afghanistan and then multiply that. It will be long and hard and horrendous and unwinnable [unless of course America nukes the entire Middle East]. And yet Trump’s generals appear to be planning to do just that — and within the next six months too.”

Boy, the world is REALLY gonna hate us for that one.

PS: And you think that America’s foreign policy is whacked? It’s domestic policy isn’t all that hot either. I just got an e-mail from a friend of mine who is a doctor. “Regarding your article on Freddie Gray? The police didn’t break his neck inside the paddy wagon. They broke it right there on the street. That’s why he was screaming in pain and had to be dragged off the scene.” Interesting. Our police departments appear to have become just one more type of urban gang.

And after reading about America’s obsession with bringing “order” to the streets, I realized something else. They probably didn’t shoot Michael Brown to death in Ferguson for allegedly robbing a convenience store. They shot him to death because he was walking in the middle of the street — that’s out of order for sure. Do not try that at home.

Then another friend of mine e-mailed me, saying, “Chicago beats this Baltimore crap hands down. We have the Homan Avenue police station on the west side where about 10,000 people have checked in and never checked out. Take a trip there. Do a FOIA on them.

“When you go there, you hear voices screaming and your hair stands on end — yet it’s still not investigated by the FBI. It’s where they kill people off for body parts, all sorts of stuff. The ‘Chicago Reader’ has done an article unchallenged. I dare you to come to this creep house.”

Who me?

“Google it. Ask Rahm Emmanuel about it. Disgusting. Been there. I get creeped out and sick every time I go there. All the employees are mean and surly as if taken over by demons.”

And so if Israeli neo-cons are ever called on the carpet by world opinion for all the atrocities they commit in Occupied Palestine, all they have to do is say, “America did it!”
