“Unhappy Anniversary: Today marks 15 years since Bush started the war on Iraq and 7 years since Obama began the war on Libya—both based on lies and deception.”

 

Yes, unhappy anniversary indeed.

The root cause of both was the American-Israeli relationship.

America committed, years ago, to assisting in “the birth of a new Middle East.” Those are Condi Rice’s words.

The phrase may freely be translated as “creating a Middle East completely compliant to America and its Mideast colony, aka, Israel.”

It implied destroying independent-minded leaders like Qaddafi or Assad, and it implied breaking up some of the region’s countries. It also implied killing a lot of people and creating a lot of misery.

America, over the last decade and a half, has killed at least two million people, injured countless others, and reduced millions to desperate refugees.

The poor refugees, in turn, came close to destabilizing Europe, but the US never lifted a finger to assist in the horror it created.

Pathetic European politicians like Angela Merkel were only trying to assuage their own consciences over toeing the line on atrocious American policies which caused so much human desperation by letting in vast numbers of refugees.

The real cause for setting fire to the Middle East has nothing to do with notions like gold dinars, just as the invasion of Iraq had nothing directly to do with crude oil, although that claim was made countless times by critics of the invasion. It is disinformation to confuse people, and it works, it does confuse them.

America has become a complete enabler for the aggression and oppression we’ve unfortunately seen from the very start of re-created Israel. More than an enabler, it has become a powerful willing helper. The cost in human terms of this twisted relationship has been immense.

The relationship is also behind much of the America-Russia poison because Israel and its supporters, the Neocons, resent Russia’s ability to somewhat check American total dominance, and American aggressive dominance is the absolute cornerstone principle of the Neocons. They feel Israel is only secure with a giant bully always standing right behind it, and the bully goes along because its own establishment has the dangerous fantasy of always wanting it to be 1953 with America supreme in the world.

And the cost of the relationship may yet become far, far greater as Trump and his bosom buddy, Netanyahu, cast deadly looks towards Iran. Trump, despite some reasonable sounds made during his campaign, has become the most supine President ever for Israel’s demands and interests. He is literally America’s first Doormat President.

It’s just part of the reason I call him an utter coward, despite all his noise and bluster and pretended bravery on other matters. He loves sounding like a big tough guy, as he grimaces and tweets from his bed, but he bent like a frail twig to the Pentagon, the CIA, and the Israel Lobby almost from his first day of power. He literally peed his pants when he should have shown toughness.
