“With Oil, Water and Iran as Targets, US on Brink of Recognizing Israeli Sovereignty Over Golan Heights

“Israel is now pushing for the U.S. to recognize its sovereignty over the Golan for fear of losing it completely, even though such recognition could result in an all-out war between Israel and Syria, as well as with Syrian allies such as Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah.”

 

Recognizing someone’s annexation of something which isn’t theirs, in defiance of all international law and practice, is pretty strange, to say the least.

But then a lot the United States does today is pretty strange, such as recognizing a self-sworn President for Venezuela who never even ran for the office. And under the added circumstance of ignoring a twice-elected legitimate President because you don’t like his views.

This is the kind of bizarre, almost Monty Pythonesque stuff you get into when you cease respecting the rule of law, something both the United States and Israel have very much done, rejecting one of the most important foundational principles of Western civilization.

“… even though such recognition could result in an all-out war between Israel and Syria, as well as with Syrian allies such as Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah”

Yes, of course, and that could be exactly what is desired. War with Iran.

What a sick, sick state of affairs.

The lunatics run the asylum.
