Introduction

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Presidents of the 52 Major Jewish American Organizations are leading President Trump, like a puppy on a leash, into a major war with Iran. The hysterical ’52 Presidents’ and ‘Bibi’ Netanyahu are busy manufacturing Holocaust-level predictions that a non-nuclear Iran is preparing to ‘vaporize’ Israel, the most powerful, nuclear-armed state in the Middle East. The buffoonish US President Trump has swallowed this fantasy wholesale and is pushing our nation toward war for the sake of Israel and its US-based supporters and agents. We will cite ten recent examples of Israeli-authored policies, implemented by Trump in his march to war (there are scores of others).

1. After many years, Israel and ‘the 52 President’ finally made the US withdraw from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) because of its detailed documentation of Israeli crimes against Palestinian people. Trump complied with their demands.

2. Tel Aviv demanded a Zionist fanatic and backer of the illegal Jewish settler occupation of Palestinian lands, the bankruptcy lawyer David Friedman, be appointed US Ambassador to Israel. Trump complied, despite the ambassador’s overt conflict of interest.

3. Israel launched waves of savage bombings against Syrian government troops and facilities engaged in a war against ISIS-mercenary terrorists. Israel, which had backed the terrorists in its ambition to break-up of the secular Syrian state, demanded US support. Trump complied, and sent more US arms to the anti-government terrorists.

4. Israel denounced the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal Framework and Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, signed by 6 major states and UN Security Council Members, (US, France, UK, Germany, China and Russia). A furious Netanyahu demanded that President Trump follow Tel Aviv and abrogate the multiparty agreement signed by his predecessor, Barack Obama. Trump complied and the US is at risk of openly violating its international agreement.

Trump parrots Netanyahu’s falsehoods to the letter: He raves that Iran, while technically in compliance, has violated ‘the spirit of the agreement’ without citing a single instance of actual violation. The 5 other signers of the ‘Framework’, the US military and the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency have repeatedly certified Iran’s strict compliance with the accord. Trump rejects the evidence of countless experts among US allies and ‘his own generals’ while embracing the hysterical lies from Israel and the ‘52’. Who would have thought the ‘hard-nosed’ businessman Trump would be so ‘spiritual’ when it came to honoring and breaking treaties and agreements!

5. Israel and the ‘52’ have demanded that Washington imprison and fine US citizens who have exercised their constitutional First Amendment Right of free speech by supporting the international boycott, divest and sanctions (BDS) campaign, which is designed to end the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestinian land and crimes against Palestinians. Trump complied. Americans may soon face over a decade in prison and complete economic ruin for supporting a peaceful economic boycott of Israeli settler products. This will represent an unprecedented violation of the US Constitution. At present, US public employees, like teachers in certain US states, are facing job loss for refusing to sign a ‘loyalty oath’ not to boycott products from Israel’s illegal settlements. Desperate American victims of the floods and natural disasters in Texas are being denied access to public US taxpayer relief funds unless they sign similar loyalty oaths in support of Israel.

6. Israel demanded that the US appoint Zionist fanatic real estate attorney, Jason Greenblatt and real estate speculator, Jared Kushner as Middle East peace negotiators. Trump appointed South Carolina businesswoman Nikki Haley as US Ambassador to the United Nations. Israel pushed for Ms. Haley, the first US governor to criminalize support for the peaceful BDS movement.

7. Trump went against the advice of ‘his Generals’ in his own cabinet regarding Iran’s compliance with the nuclear agreement, and chose to comply with Netanyahu’s demands.

8. Trump supports the long-standing Israeli project to maneuver a Kurdish takeover of Northern Iraq, grabbing the oil-rich Kirkuk province and permanently divide the once secular, nationalist Iraqi nation. Trump has sent arms and military advisers to the Kurds in war-torn Syria as they attempt to grab territory for a separate ‘Kurdistan’. This is part of an Israeli plan to subdivide the Middle East into impotent tribal ‘statelets’.

9. Trump rejected the Turkish government’s demand to extradite CIA-Israeli-backed Fethullah Gulen, self-exiled in the US since 1999, for his leadership role in the failed 2016 military coup d’etat.

10. Like all his predecessors, Trump is completely submissive to Israeli-directed ‘lobbies’ (like AIPAC), which operate on behalf of a foreign power, in violation of the 1938 Foreign Agents Registration Act. Trump chose his Orthodox Zionist son-in-law, Jared Kushner, a callow real estate investor and prominent supporter for war against Iran, as his chief foreign policy adviser.

President Trump’s irresponsible pandering to Israel and its American-Jewish agents has caused deep unease among the Generals in his cabinet, as well as among active duty and retired US military officers, who are skeptical about Tel Aviv’s push for open-ended US wars in the Middle East.

Ten Reasons Why Military Officers support America’s Nuclear Accord with Iran

The Netanyahu-Israel First power configuration in Washington succeeded in convincing Trump to tear-up the nuclear accord with Iran. This went against the advice and wishes of the top US generals in the White House and active duty officers in the field who support the agreement and recognize Iran’s cooperation.

The Generals have ten solid reasons for rejecting the Netanyahu-Trump push to shred the accord:

1. The agreement is working. By all reliable, independent and official observers, including the International Atomic Energy Agency, the US intelligence community and the US Secretary of State – Iran is complying with its side of the agreement.

2. If Trump violates the agreement, co-signed by the 6 members of the UN Security Council, in order to truckle to the whims of Israel and its gang of ‘52’, the US government will lose all credibility among its allies. The US military will be equally tainted in its current and future dealings with NATO and other military ‘partners’.

ORDER IT NOW

3. Violation of the agreement will force the Iranians to restart their nuclear, as well as advanced defensive, weapons programs, increasing the risk of an Israeli-Trump instigated military confrontation. Any US war with Iran will be prolonged, costing the lives of tens of thousands of US troops, its land bases in the Gulf States, and warships in the Persian Gulf. Full-scale war with Iran, a large and well-armed country, would be a disaster for the entire region.

4. US generals know from their earlier experiences under the George W. Bush Administration that Zionist officials in Washington, in close collaboration with Israeli handlers, worked tirelessly to engineer the US invasion of Iraq and the prolonged war in Afghanistan. This led to the death and injury of hundreds of thousands of US military personnel as well as millions of civilian casualties in the invaded countries. The ensuing chaos created the huge refugee crises now threatening the stability of Europe. The Generals view the Israel-Firsters as irresponsible armchair warmongers and media propagandists, who have no ‘skin in the game’ through any service in the US Armed Forces. They are correctly seen as agents for a foreign entity.

5. US generals learned the lesson of the wars in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Somalia – where disastrous interventions led to defeats and loss of potential important regional allies.

6. US generals, who are working with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to negotiate an agreement with North Korea, know that Trump’s breaking a negotiated agreement with Iran, only reinforces North Korea’s distrust of the US and will harden its opposition to a diplomatic settlement on the Korean Peninsula. It is clear that a full-scale war with nuclear-armed North Korea could wipe out tens of thousands of US troops and allies throughout the region and kill or displace hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of civilians.

7. US generals are deeply disturbed by the notion that their Commander in Chief, the elected President of the United States, is taking his orders from Israel and its US proxies. They dislike committing American blood and treasure for a foreign power whose policies have only degraded US influence in the Middle East. The generals want to act for and in defense of US national interests – and not Tel Aviv’s.

8. US military officials resent the fact that Israel receives the most advanced US military weapons and technology, which have been subsidized by the US taxpayers. In some cases, Israelis receive advanced US weapons before US troops even have them. They also are aware that Israeli intelligence agents (and American citizens) have spied on the US and received confidential military information in order to pre-empt US policy. Israel operates within the United States with total impunity!

9. US generals are concerned about negotiating accords with China over strategic military issues of global importance. The constant catering and groveling to Israel, an insignificant global economic entity, has reduced US prestige and status, as well as China’s trust in the validity of any military agreements with the Americans.

10. Trump’s total reliance on his pro-Israel advisers, embedded in his regime, at the expense of US military intelligence, has led to the construction of a parallel government, pitting the President and his Zionist-advisers against his generals. This certainly exposes the total hypocrisy of Trump’s presidential campaign promise to ‘Make America Great Again’. His practice and policy of promoting war with Iran for the sake of Israel are placing US national interest and the advice of the US generals last and will never restore American prestige.

Trump’s decision not to certify Iran’s compliance with the accord and his handing the ultimate decision on an international agreement signed by the six members of the UN Security Council over to the US Congress is ominous: He has effectively given potential war making powers to a corrupt legislature, often derided as ‘Israeli occupied territory’, which has always sided with Israeli and US Zionist war mongers. Trump is snubbing ‘his’ State Department, the Pentagon and the various US Intelligence agencies while giving into the demands of such Zionist zealots as New York Senator Charles Schumer, Netanyahu’s alter ego in the US Senate and a huge booster for war with Iran.

Conclusion

Trump’s refusal to certify Iran’s compliance with nuclear accord reflects the overwhelming power of Israel within the US Presidency. Trump’s rebuke of his generals and Secretary of State Tillerson, the UN Security Council and the 5 major cosigners of the 2015 accord with Iran, exposes the advanced degradation of the US Presidency and the US role in global politics.

All previous US Presidents have been influenced by the billionaire and millionaire diehard Israel-Firsters, who funded their electoral campaigns. But occasionally, some ‘Commanders in Chief’ have decided to pursue policies favoring US national interest over Israel’s bellicose ambitions. Avoiding a catastrophic war in the Middle East is such a case: Obama chose to negotiate and sign a nuclear accord with Iran. Tel Aviv’s useful fool, Donald Trump, intends to break the agreement and drag this nation further into the hell of regional war.

In this regard, international opinion has sided with America’s generals. Only Israel and its US acolytes on Wall Street and Hollywood applaud the blustering, bellicose Trump!

    Until recently "Propriety" meant the MSM line on Israel, but after WMD and 9/11, it has all become so fake (ref. the points in this article), that even the dumbest Americans are starting to sit up and take notice.

    They're don't actually know that each of them (taxpayers), have been put about $ 23.000 in debt to pay for Middle East wars, but they know that something's not right, and most of them seem to be realizing that their hero Donald Trump has sold them out.

    Their "borderless warfare state" has become an empty can kicked along the road by Israel and US Zionists.

    More like retardation to power.

    There will never, ever, ever be a US strike on Iran. Never. It isn't going to fucking happen.

    In 2030 you Paleocons will still be talking about the imminent US attack on Iran.

    What amazes me about you guys is just how incredibly shameless you are. You have been promising a US attack on Iran since 2005 and not only have you never apologized for being humiliating wrong but you have doubled down. It really is disgusting. When I talk about anti semites giving anti semitism a bad name, this is the kind of stuff I'm talking about.

    I know you want a US strike on on Iran but I'm sorry, it just isn't going to happen. No amount of shitty articles on Unz will change that.

    “The hysterical ’52 Presidents’ and ‘Bibi’ Netanyahu are busy manufacturing Holocaust-level predictions that a non-nuclear Iran is preparing to ‘vaporize’ Israel, the most powerful, nuclear-armed state in the Middle East.”

    It’s the fake & impossible ’6M Jews & gas chambers’ which indeed allows Zionists to get away with their violence & thievery.

    Until this scam is openly acknowledged as the fraud that it is, there will be no changes. None.

    It’s time to get real. They need us, we do not need them.

    Engage the true enemy.

    see the ‘holocaust’ scam debunked here:

    No name calling, level playing field debate here:

    http://forum.codoh.com

    It’s just not that complicated.
    The ‘holocaust’ storyline is one of the most easily debunked narratives ever contrived. That is why those who question it are arrested and persecuted. That is why violent, racist, & privileged Jewish supremacists demand censorship. What sort of truth is it that denies free speech and the freedom to seek the truth? Truth needs no protection from scrutiny.

  3. Funny how this author seriously thinks that the US might invade and occupy Iran. Of course it wouldn’t. If Trump ordered the US to strike Iran, it would likely ally with the Israeli Air Force in doing so.
    Also, the Palestinians are Jordanians, “Palestine” doesn’t really exist. People like this author who think hostilities would cease if you gave Muslims, who elect terrorists to be their government officials, more land, and reduced Israel’s are hilarious. You really think things would be hunky dory if “Palestine” was a state? Israel would have be indefensible in such case.

    Trump will be one of the strongest pro-Israel president’s we’ve had in awhile, and I believe this is a good thing. They are the only democracy in the Middle East and a staunch ally.

    BDS is nothing more the one of the oldest forms of hatred–hatred of the Jews. To protest Israel’s supposed “human rights abuses” and think nothing of the plethora of human right’s abuses that occur DAILY in the Middle East is very revealing. It shows that it’s simply anti-semitism that’s driving BDS. Funny how white liberals and alt-righters have hatred of the Jews in common.

    Another Zionist troll spewing LIES to befuddle Americans, who mistakenly think Israel is our ally. Israel is NOT our ally, it is possibly our most dangerous enemy, always plotting and subverting American politics to get the results that are good for Israel and disastrous for the USA. When they aren't busy robbing us thru their control of the FED and US Treasury, they're busy spying on us, stealing our military secrets and selling them to Commie China or attacking Americans, like they did to the USS Liberty and masterminding the 9/11 False Flag.

    What about the Stern, Irgun and Hagganah Jew terrorists that were appointed and or voted in to be Israeli PM or presidents? Begin, Rabin, Gurion are just a few.

    Israel is not a democracy, it is an apartheid theocracy that is slowly wiping off the face of the Earth the indigenous Palestinians who are trying to live in peace; difficult to do when the occupying power, Israel, has set up a concentration camp in Gaza and is terrorizing the native Palestinians off their West Bank lands.

    Trump might be ignorant enough to start a war with Iran and if he does, that same back-stabbers that lied us into the illegal war against Iraq will be responsible, Jewish Americans whose only true loyalty is to Apartheid Israel.

    From a 2003 Ha aretz article:

    The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history. Two of them, journalists William Kristol and Charles Krauthammer, say it's possible.

    This is a war of an elite. [Tom] Friedman laughs: I could give you the names of 25 people (all of whom are at this moment within a five-block radius of this office) who, if you had exiled them to a desert island a year and a half ago, the Iraq war would not have happened.

    BDS is using our masters' tool against themselves. Who announced a boycott of prostrate Germany back in 1933?

    It does? What's anti-Semitism anyway? One would think that a people with such purportedly massive brain power would be able to conjure up something a little more original and effective. It's really amusing for a people who brag, at every opportunity about their power and wealth, to play the victim card over and over and over. I gotta tell ya, that old song gets tiring and you know that we dumb goyim are easily bored.

    Does not this help to understand why the supremacist tribe was expelled from numerous countries? The most recent examples are the bolshevik Russia (80% of the bolshevik government were ethnic Jews) and the genocidal policies in Palestine, which mimic the Nazi policies against Slavs.
    The tribe suffers two dangerous ailments: the psychopathy of "master race" and moral relativism. Whether the murdered Persians (see the story of the treasonous foreigners Esther and Mordecai) or the murdered Russians (see the Jewish organizers of GULAG and secret police), the tribe showed again and again its congenitally parasitic nature.
    , @Anon
    Do the facts have a "hatred-of-the-Jews" bias?
    Here is a story of the activities coordinated by a famous ziocon Victoria Nuland-Kagan (from the famous ziocon family of Kagans) during regime change in Kiev in 2014: " http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-17/another-false-flag-terror-admission-snipers-ukraine-“protests”
    [Ukrainian Health Minister Oleh] Musiy, who spent more than two months organizing medical units on Maidan, said that on Feb. 20 roughly 40 civilians and protesters were brought with fatal bullet wounds to the makeshift hospital set up near the square. But he said medics also treated three police officers whose wounds were identical.
    Forensic evidence, in particular the similarity of the bullet wounds, led him and others to conclude that snipers were targeting both sides of the standoff at Maidan — and that the shootings were intended to generate a wave of revulsion so strong that it would topple Yanukovych and also justify a Russian invasion.
    ... the snipers who admitted firing at both sides were associated with Mikhail Saakashvili and his party. Saakashvili was a huge supporter of the Maidan protesters from the very beginning. ... Indeed, the Maidan protesters who deposed the old Ukrainian prime minister were so pleased with events that they rewarded Saakashvili by appointing him leader of Ukraine’s largest region."

    Your tribe has single-handedly revived the neo-Nazism in Ukraine. This is a great monument to the Jewish Lobby! Add to that the neo-Nazi parades in Latvia (NATO state), Lithuania (NATO state), and Poland (NATO state) and the Kagans-McCain' travails in Ukraine reveal their true mighty results. The murdered civilians in Eastern Ukraine are the direct responsibility of US ziocons.
    The ongoing holocaust against Palestinians and Israelis support for ISIS against sovereign Syria make another reminder of the Jewish cunning immorality. See the cordial relationships between Israel and Wahhabist Saudi Arabia, two bloody theocratic states supporting terrorism: http://thesaker.is/a-ziowahabi-attack-on-hezbollah-and-iran/

    Funny how white liberals and alt-righters have hatred of the Jews in common.
     
    You forgot the Muslims. Everybody hates the Jews, even the blacks hate the Jews, the blacks that the Jews hold so dear, their fellow oppressed. Jews today and throughout history have often shown themselves to be a deviant, vindictive lot who observe no moral code, driven by greed and lust, and completely untrustworthy. Only a fool would trust a Jew. Everything the Jews touch turns to shite. They turned the whole Middle East to shite (although with plenty of help from the equally shite Muslim horde). They turned our media, academia, judiciary, Wall Street, Hollywood, Silicon Valley and Washington DC to shite. They turned the UK parliament and the entire British aristocracy to shite. They turned all of Europe to shite, not once, twice but now for a 3rd time.

    I used to admire the Jews. They were well educated and successful in spite of all the perceived anti-semitism. But somewhere along the way they've lost their ways. Call it WASP envy. They went off the rails when they decided to destroy WASP culture. Unchecked power always corrupts. The media and judiciary are supposed to be our watchdogs, but since they are all owned by Jews all they've been doing is covering up and justifying all the Jews' misdeeds - financial fraud, electoral fraud, debauchery, stifling of dissent, fake news, outright lies, identity politics, meddling in other countries' affairs, starting one war after another on behalf of Israel. All are covered up or justified away by our media and judiciary to protect their own.

    It's taken me a while but I'm finally woke. The Jews need some serious introspection. They cannot continue down this path. For the sake of their own survival, as well as the rest of the world's, they need to discover their souls and for once in their history, embrace honor and integrity.

    While I support any action exposing the power of The Zionist Entity, including this article, the ‘facts’ as outlined in this piece are exaggerated. Trump has been outwardly very close with Bibi booboo and the ‘Likudnicks’ but from what I’ve gathered its more at arms length with those vermin behind closed doors, not withstanding the troubling developments in Saudi Arabia the last few weeks and accounts of Kirshner’s involvement there. My take is that he has to keep Big Joo calm while he is trying to do what’s right for the national, that’s the American national interest! In his trip to Joo-land last winter he did things that went contrary to what BiBi wanted and Netanyahu had to accept. I’m still guessing that he’s going to give Kirshner enough rope for him to hang himself then nicely remove his son in law from any major role in policy, that’s my hunch and hope.
    With regard to Iran, the generals have to be very strong and blunt with Donald and tell him to fuck off the serpents, i.e., The Lobby. The other signatories to the Iran agreement, Europe, Russia and China will see to that and also Boeing wants to sell planes!

  7. I wonder if Bibi knows what’s he’s doing, if indeed he wants the USA to attack Iran.
    Nobody outside Iran knows what the Iranians have built deep in their rocks, as far as I know Iranian rockets can reach Israel.

    It's beyond the comprehension of any sane person. One simply cannot imagine or begin to understand what motivates the crackpots.

    That's one of the reasons "leadership" is full of nutcases. As bad money drives out good, so do crackpots drive out sane folks who are left befuddled and overwhelmed.

    There’s lots of truth in the article concerning the Jewish influence but the author is massively overplaying the virtuous role of the “US Generals”, State Department and Intelligence Services. The narrative quickly moved into what looks like a deliberate caricature for some reason. Colour me sceptical.

    7, US generals are deeply disturbed by the notion that their Commander in Chief, the elected President of the United States, is taking his orders from Israel and its US proxies. They dislike committing American blood and treasure for a foreign power whose policies have only degraded US influence in the Middle East. The generals want to act for and in defense of US national interests – and not Tel Aviv’s.

    8. US military officials resent the fact that Israel receives the most advanced US military weapons and technology, which have been subsidized by the US taxpayers. In some cases, Israelis receive advanced US weapons before US troops even have them

    I’d like to believe these are true, but what is Petras’s basis for these statements?

    Also, I don’t see the generals as moderating Trump — certainly not Mattis: he’s rarin’ to go get ‘em.

    Getting the military to actually “preserve and protect the Constitution” — and refuse to turn their guns on the American people but rather FOR the American people is the ONLY hope we have of getting USA out from under zioinist occupation.

    Funny how this author seriously thinks that the US might invade and occupy Iran. Of course it wouldn't. If Trump ordered the US to strike Iran, it would likely ally with the Israeli Air Force in doing so.
    Also, the Palestinians are Jordanians, "Palestine" doesn't really exist. People like this author who think hostilities would cease if you gave Muslims, who elect terrorists to be their government officials, more land, and reduced Israel's are hilarious. You really think things would be hunky dory if "Palestine" was a state? Israel would have be indefensible in such case.

    Trump will be one of the strongest pro-Israel president's we've had in awhile, and I believe this is a good thing. They are the only democracy in the Middle East and a staunch ally.

    BDS is nothing more the one of the oldest forms of hatred--hatred of the Jews. To protest Israel's supposed "human rights abuses" and think nothing of the plethora of human right's abuses that occur DAILY in the Middle East is very revealing. It shows that it's simply anti-semitism that's driving BDS. Funny how white liberals and alt-righters have hatred of the Jews in common.

    And Iran itself is happy to play this game of big words, issuing scary proclamations but escalating nothing outside of its Syria/Iraq involvement, the real threat in the eyes of (((our greatest ally))). It remans an open question just how strong their pull on Donald actually is.

    Another Zionist troll spewing LIES to befuddle Americans, who mistakenly think Israel is our ally. Israel is NOT our ally, it is possibly our most dangerous enemy, always plotting and subverting American politics to get the results that are good for Israel and disastrous for the USA. When they aren’t busy robbing us thru their control of the FED and US Treasury, they’re busy spying on us, stealing our military secrets and selling them to Commie China or attacking Americans, like they did to the USS Liberty and masterminding the 9/11 False Flag.

    What about the Stern, Irgun and Hagganah Jew terrorists that were appointed and or voted in to be Israeli PM or presidents? Begin, Rabin, Gurion are just a few.

    Israel is not a democracy, it is an apartheid theocracy that is slowly wiping off the face of the Earth the indigenous Palestinians who are trying to live in peace; difficult to do when the occupying power, Israel, has set up a concentration camp in Gaza and is terrorizing the native Palestinians off their West Bank lands.

    Trump might be ignorant enough to start a war with Iran and if he does, that same back-stabbers that lied us into the illegal war against Iraq will be responsible, Jewish Americans whose only true loyalty is to Apartheid Israel.

    From a 2003 Ha aretz article:

    The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history. Two of them, journalists William Kristol and Charles Krauthammer, say it’s possible.

    This is a war of an elite. [Tom] Friedman laughs: I could give you the names of 25 people (all of whom are at this moment within a five-block radius of this office) who, if you had exiled them to a desert island a year and a half ago, the Iraq war would not have happened.

He said, “I just got this memo today or yesterday from the office of the Secretary of Defense upstairs. It’s a… five-year plan. We’re going to take down seven countries in five years. We’re going to start with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, then Libya, Somalia, Sudan, we’re going to come back and get Iran in five years.

    Yes I can. Very easily.

    1. Clarke is referencing a conversation that took place during the Bush administration. That administration is gone and the neocons in it who pushed the Iraq war have been permanently discredited and removed from power.

    2. Syria was destroyed by civil war, not the US. The US set up no fly zones after the Syrian rebels had already carved out territory. The recent gains Assad has made against ISIS in Syria would not have happened if not for US backed Kurdish and Iraqi forces putting the squeeze on ISIS in conjunction with US air strikes. The US also has made some token bombings of runways in convoys that have done no real damage and certainly haven't created any of the images of burned out buildings in urban areas that Paleocons love so much.

    3. Lebanon was destroyed by Israel as part of a war which Lebanon started. Had nothing to do with the US.

    4. Libya was a civil war that Obama did everything he could to stay out of. He was finally dragged kicking and screaming into intervening by France and the UK when those countries realized that they were unable to topple Qaddafi after promising to do so. Hard to blame a nefarious US plot when the US didn't even want to intervene.

    5. Somalia has been in a constant state of civil war for decades, it hasn't been destroyed by the US.

    6. Sudan has been in a long term civil war with it's Arab Muslim population waging genocide against the black Christian South Sudanese. Has nothing to do with the US.

    Hey, Greasy. We haven't been promising anything. It was General Wesley Clark who informed the world about what was about to transpire in MENA in this conversation with a Pentagon official, remember:

    I said, “Are we still going to invade Iraq?” “Yes, Sir,” he said, “but it’s worse than that.” I said, “How do you mean?” He held up this piece of paper. He said, “I just got this memo today or yesterday from the office of the Secretary of Defense upstairs. It’s a… five-year plan. We’re going to take down seven countries in five years. We’re going to start with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, then Libya, Somalia, Sudan, we’re going to come back and get Iran in five years. I said, “Is that classified, that paper?” He said, “Yes Sir.” I said, “Well, don’t show it to me, because I want to be able to talk about it.”

    Consider the GWOT as a gruesome serial crime, and analyze all available public evidence to date, beginning at September 11, 2001.

    1. Clarke is referencing a conversation that took place during the Bush administration. That administration is gone and the neocons in it who pushed the Iraq war have been permanently discredited and removed from power.

    2. Syria was destroyed by civil war, not the US. The US set up no fly zones after the Syrian rebels had already carved out territory. The recent gains Assad has made against ISIS in Syria would not have happened if not for US backed Kurdish and Iraqi forces putting the squeeze on ISIS in conjunction with US air strikes. The US also has made some token bombings of runways in convoys that have done no real damage and certainly haven’t created any of the images of burned out buildings in urban areas that Paleocons love so much.

    3. Lebanon was destroyed by Israel as part of a war which Lebanon started. Had nothing to do with the US.

    4. Libya was a civil war that Obama did everything he could to stay out of. He was finally dragged kicking and screaming into intervening by France and the UK when those countries realized that they were unable to topple Qaddafi after promising to do so. Hard to blame a nefarious US plot when the US didn’t even want to intervene.

    5. Somalia has been in a constant state of civil war for decades, it hasn’t been destroyed by the US.

    6. Sudan has been in a long term civil war with it’s Arab Muslim population waging genocide against the black Christian South Sudanese. Has nothing to do with the US.

    The neocons were neither "permanently discredited" nor "removed from power". They were still very much in control when Hillary was Secretary of State, that's why the Libyan invasion and the CIA interference in Syria that started the civil war. They may have been temporarily on hiatus when John Kerry became SoS, but thanks to Trump they are back in full force.

    Syria was destroyed by civil war, not the US.
     
    But what started the civil war? Many believe it was the CIA under Clinton who started the civil war by arming a bunch of ragtag street protesters into full fledged opposition fighters. Why? Because of a gas pipeline that Qatar wants to build to Western Europe that must go through Syria. Qatar and Saudi Arabia are big donors to the Clinton campaign, and Western Europe wants the pipeline for energy independence from Russia. Read this article by Robert Kennedy, Jr. in Politico:
    https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2016/02/rfk-jr-why-arabs-dont-trust-america-213601

    At the end of the day, the Middle East will never see peace. These savages have been fighting one another for the past 10,000 years, since the dawn of mankind, and will be fighting for another 10,000, or until the last 2 men standing inflict mortal wounds on each other, whichever comes first. That's why the US needs to stay the heck out of all the Mideast conflicts. Israel and their supporters in the US will bring the American empire to its demise.

    3 Somalia in 2002 had already moved away sig ificantly from the chaos and disorganization of 1992 . Bush jr put the country right back to 1992.
    4 Hillary saw an opportunity or saw a lot of opportunities and provoked the Libyan descent into chaos by working both militarily , diplomatically and by allowing different conspiracy theories mushroom . Those lies were used to carry out diplomatic attack on Libya .

    Muslims, who elect terrorists to be their government officials, more land, and reduced Israel’s are hilarious. You really think things would be hunky dory if “Palestine” was a state? Israel would have be indefensible in such case.

    Trump will be one of the strongest pro-Israel president’s we’ve had in awhile, and I believe this is a good thing. They are the only democracy in the Middle East and a staunch ally.
     
    Another Zionist troll spewing LIES to befuddle Americans, who mistakenly think Israel is our ally. Israel is NOT our ally, it is possibly our most dangerous enemy, always plotting and subverting American politics to get the results that are good for Israel and disastrous for the USA. When they aren't busy robbing us thru their control of the FED and US Treasury, they're busy spying on us, stealing our military secrets and selling them to Commie China or attacking Americans, like they did to the USS Liberty and masterminding the 9/11 False Flag.

    What about the Stern, Irgun and Hagganah Jew terrorists that were appointed and or voted in to be Israeli PM or presidents? Begin, Rabin, Gurion are just a few.

    Israel is not a democracy, it is an apartheid theocracy that is slowly wiping off the face of the Earth the indigenous Palestinians who are trying to live in peace; difficult to do when the occupying power, Israel, has set up a concentration camp in Gaza and is terrorizing the native Palestinians off their West Bank lands.

    Trump might be ignorant enough to start a war with Iran and if he does, that same back-stabbers that lied us into the illegal war against Iraq will be responsible, Jewish Americans whose only true loyalty is to Apartheid Israel.

    From a 2003 Ha aretz article:

    The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history. Two of them, journalists William Kristol and Charles Krauthammer, say it's possible.

    This is a war of an elite. [Tom] Friedman laughs: I could give you the names of 25 people (all of whom are at this moment within a five-block radius of this office) who, if you had exiled them to a desert island a year and a half ago, the Iraq war would not have happened.

    A person, group, country, cannot heap so much abuse, murder, vile hatred against the Other (i.e. Palestinians) for 70 years and not eventually implode.
    IMO...Israel is destroying itself and even if it wanted to backtrack ( never! of course) there in now, no turning back. It is a degenerate society against Others and against itself.

    Israel is devouring itself from the inside.
    It is this slow but progressive devouring of their own ( and the Other) , where the tiring and overly used phrase " Self- hating Jews", fit perfectly.

    Jews have been holding on to those long ago gone and dead Nazis' sleeves in what can only be liken to a psychopathic Death Grip.
    This time Jews will not be able to blame those old dead German corpses on Israel 's self- perpetrating demise. Never being able to discern the whys of their repeated history and always arrogant, thinking themselves to be " special " and entitled above Others, the Jews , once again, will do themselves in.

    Jews who know their own history should be aware that such a state of affairs will inevitably lead to a new wave of Jew-hatred; the antisemitism of tomorrow will assert that Jews not only profiteered from the presence of foreign big powers in that region but had actually plotted it and hence are guilty of the consequences…

    Funny how this author seriously thinks that the US might invade and occupy Iran. Of course it wouldn't. If Trump ordered the US to strike Iran, it would likely ally with the Israeli Air Force in doing so.
    Also, the Palestinians are Jordanians, "Palestine" doesn't really exist. People like this author who think hostilities would cease if you gave Muslims, who elect terrorists to be their government officials, more land, and reduced Israel's are hilarious. You really think things would be hunky dory if "Palestine" was a state? Israel would have be indefensible in such case.

    Trump will be one of the strongest pro-Israel president's we've had in awhile, and I believe this is a good thing. They are the only democracy in the Middle East and a staunch ally.

    BDS is nothing more the one of the oldest forms of hatred--hatred of the Jews. To protest Israel's supposed "human rights abuses" and think nothing of the plethora of human right's abuses that occur DAILY in the Middle East is very revealing. It shows that it's simply anti-semitism that's driving BDS. Funny how white liberals and alt-righters have hatred of the Jews in common.

    “US generals know from their earlier experiences under the George W. Bush Administration that Zionist officials in Washington, in close collaboration with Israeli handlers, worked tirelessly to engineer the US invasion of Iraq and the prolonged war in Afghanistan. This led to the death and injury of hundreds of thousands of US military personnel as well as millions of civilian casualties in the invaded countries. The ensuing chaos created the huge refugee crises now threatening the stability of Europe. The Generals view the Israel-Firsters as irresponsible armchair warmongers and media propagandists, who have no ‘skin in the game’ through any service in the US Armed Forces. They are correctly seen as agents for a foreign entity.”
    Does not this help to understand why the supremacist tribe was expelled from numerous countries? The most recent examples are the bolshevik Russia (80% of the bolshevik government were ethnic Jews) and the genocidal policies in Palestine, which mimic the Nazi policies against Slavs.
    The tribe suffers two dangerous ailments: the psychopathy of “master race” and moral relativism. Whether the murdered Persians (see the story of the treasonous foreigners Esther and Mordecai) or the murdered Russians (see the Jewish organizers of GULAG and secret police), the tribe showed again and again its congenitally parasitic nature.

    Jews like to brag they are the most intelligent people on the planet. Maybe, but their common sense doesn’t allow them to learn from past mistakes and change their ways, making them the dumbest idiots in the solar system

    What they’re doing to the USA has been done many times before, and eventually, when the people found out who was stirring up the wars or causing the revolutions, financial strife and who had access to the treasury, they rose up to get rid of the malignant influence and usually, in a nasty, bloody way.

    That’s happened in around 100 nations over the centuries, most recently in Germany and Russia, and neither turned out well for the Jews.

    Screaming that we’re anti-Semites and Jew haters only masques the REAL problem for so long, then all hell breaks loose.

    Hey, Greasy. We haven't been promising anything. It was General Wesley Clark who informed the world about what was about to transpire in MENA in this conversation with a Pentagon official, remember:

    I said, “Are we still going to invade Iraq?” “Yes, Sir,” he said, “but it’s worse than that.” I said, “How do you mean?” He held up this piece of paper. He said, “I just got this memo today or yesterday from the office of the Secretary of Defense upstairs. It’s a… five-year plan. We’re going to take down seven countries in five years. We’re going to start with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, then Libya, Somalia, Sudan, we’re going to come back and get Iran in five years. I said, “Is that classified, that paper?” He said, “Yes Sir.” I said, “Well, don’t show it to me, because I want to be able to talk about it.”
     
    And here's what 6 out of the 7 countries look like:

    Can you blame anyone for thinking Iran is next?

    excellent post. the 5 year time table is out the window and it is now on it’s 17th year. and from the way things are playing out in the ME, it will probably be at least 5 more years before they understand iran have russian and chinese backing. and it is untouchable because of that.

  38. On past performance, Trump will say everything and the contrary of everything and then do nothing but even if he did go to war with Iran, Mr Petras doesn’t explain why that would be a “disaster”.
    A few points of detail. The idea of James Petras piously defending the US military is rather amusing to anyone who has read his many articles over the years. The idea of James Petras piously defending the EU is equally amusing. According to a recent book, the refugee flood was fabricated by the CIA (in collusion with …?) precisely as part of its now 45-year old campaign to destroy the EU. That certainly explains why the trickle turned into a flood far better than any US military campaign or, indeed, Putin’s war in Syria. One might add that the threat to the EU is now largely past. Having discovered that they are most unwelcome here in Europe, many “refugees” are now going back home. That, plus Merkel’s relative defeat in the German election, the farce that Brexit has turned into and the defeat of the far-right parties the CIA was trying to use as leverage in other Member States, means that the “anti-refugee” Member States have won the battle. While we’re talking about anti-EU leverage, by failing to stand up to Putin in Ukraine, the US has already lost all credibility with its allies and nothing short of the removal of Putin from Ukraine, and ideally, from power in Russia, will restore that credibility. Iran will change nothing, one way or the other.

    Also, the Palestinians are Jordanians, "Palestine" doesn't really exist.

You really think things would be hunky dory if "Palestine" was a state? Israel would have be indefensible in such case.

    Trump will be one of the strongest pro-Israel president's we've had in awhile, and I believe this is a good thing. They are the only democracy in the Middle East and a staunch ally.

    BDS is nothing more the one of the oldest forms of hatred--hatred of the Jews. To protest Israel's supposed "human rights abuses" and think nothing of the plethora of human right's abuses that occur DAILY in the Middle East is very revealing. It shows that it's simply anti-semitism that's driving BDS. Funny how white liberals and alt-righters have hatred of the Jews in common.

    Do the facts have a “hatred-of-the-Jews” bias?
    Here is a story of the activities coordinated by a famous ziocon Victoria Nuland-Kagan (from the famous ziocon family of Kagans) during regime change in Kiev in 2014: ” http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-17/another-false-flag-terror-admission-snipers-ukraine-“protests”
    [Ukrainian Health Minister Oleh] Musiy, who spent more than two months organizing medical units on Maidan, said that on Feb. 20 roughly 40 civilians and protesters were brought with fatal bullet wounds to the makeshift hospital set up near the square. But he said medics also treated three police officers whose wounds were identical.
    Forensic evidence, in particular the similarity of the bullet wounds, led him and others to conclude that snipers were targeting both sides of the standoff at Maidan — and that the shootings were intended to generate a wave of revulsion so strong that it would topple Yanukovych and also justify a Russian invasion.
    … the snipers who admitted firing at both sides were associated with Mikhail Saakashvili and his party. Saakashvili was a huge supporter of the Maidan protesters from the very beginning. … Indeed, the Maidan protesters who deposed the old Ukrainian prime minister were so pleased with events that they rewarded Saakashvili by appointing him leader of Ukraine’s largest region.”

    Your tribe has single-handedly revived the neo-Nazism in Ukraine. This is a great monument to the Jewish Lobby! Add to that the neo-Nazi parades in Latvia (NATO state), Lithuania (NATO state), and Poland (NATO state) and the Kagans-McCain’ travails in Ukraine reveal their true mighty results. The murdered civilians in Eastern Ukraine are the direct responsibility of US ziocons.
    The ongoing holocaust against Palestinians and Israelis support for ISIS against sovereign Syria make another reminder of the Jewish cunning immorality.

    Israel is not a democracy, it is an apartheid theocracy
     
    That's a statement of utter ignorance and stupidity. Israel is anything but a theocracy. It is a socialist country that was founded by atheists masquerading as Jews.

    Before accusing others of ignorance, cover your sorry back with some elementary knowledge: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Israel
    “Religion in Israel is a central feature of the country and plays a major role in shaping Israeli culture and lifestyle, and religion has played a central role in Israel’s history. … Israel does not have a constitution. While the Basic Laws of Israel that serve in place of a constitution define the country as a “Jewish state”, these Basic Laws, coupled with Knesset statutes, decisions of the Supreme Court of Israel, and various elements of the common law current in Israel, offer some protection for free practice of religion in the country.”

    Jews like to brag they are the most intelligent people on the planet. Maybe, but their common sense doesn't allow them to learn from past mistakes and change their ways, making them the dumbest idiots in the solar system

    What they're doing to the USA has been done many times before, and eventually, when the people found out who was stirring up the wars or causing the revolutions, financial strife and who had access to the treasury, they rose up to get rid of the malignant influence and usually, in a nasty, bloody way.


    That's happened in around 100 nations over the centuries, most recently in Germany and Russia, and neither turned out well for the Jews.

    Screaming that we're anti-Semites and Jew haters only masques the REAL problem for so long, then all hell breaks loose.

    Will they learn from past mistakes this time or must history repeat itself?

    Will they learn from past mistakes this time or must history repeat itself?

    They did learn. This time they’ve pre-emptively poisoned every avenue of goyim expression (media, politics, academia etc.) and decided to take it all (NWO).

    Alas, it’s all crumbling down, again. Hubris and shameless hostility can only take you so far. This time they’ve gone global and the history will repeat itself on an unprecedented scale. It just might be the last conflict we’ll have with that particular parasite.

    Can you blame anyone for thinking Iran is next?
     
    Yes I can. Very easily.

    1. Clarke is referencing a conversation that took place during the Bush administration. That administration is gone and the neocons in it who pushed the Iraq war have been permanently discredited and removed from power.

    2. Syria was destroyed by civil war, not the US. The US set up no fly zones after the Syrian rebels had already carved out territory. The recent gains Assad has made against ISIS in Syria would not have happened if not for US backed Kurdish and Iraqi forces putting the squeeze on ISIS in conjunction with US air strikes. The US also has made some token bombings of runways in convoys that have done no real damage and certainly haven't created any of the images of burned out buildings in urban areas that Paleocons love so much.

    3. Lebanon was destroyed by Israel as part of a war which Lebanon started. Had nothing to do with the US.

    4. Libya was a civil war that Obama did everything he could to stay out of. He was finally dragged kicking and screaming into intervening by France and the UK when those countries realized that they were unable to topple Qaddafi after promising to do so. Hard to blame a nefarious US plot when the US didn't even want to intervene.

    5. Somalia has been in a constant state of civil war for decades, it hasn't been destroyed by the US.

    6. Sudan has been in a long term civil war with it's Arab Muslim population waging genocide against the black Christian South Sudanese. Has nothing to do with the US.

    5/6, I award you a B on your comment. It may have been possible to blame France and the UK prior to these revelations:

  53. This is a very important article.

    Petras reminds us that Zionist Israel–with its secret arsenal of nuclear WMD and appalling record of interference in US affairs–continues to enjoy unsurpassed influence in Washington and beyond. This fact is now beyond dispute.

    Undue Zionist influence helped deliver the horrific, trillion-dollar wars on Iraq, Libya and Syria, the ongoing economic war against Iran, as well as the decades-long subjugation of Palestine. These unjust policies reflect institutionalized corruption. They do not advance–but rather harm and undermine–US interests. Worse still, the forces that engineered these policies and military catastrophies remain embedded at the highest levels throughout Washington. Just turn on your TV or pick up a newspaper. There they are, still giving us ‘expert’ testimony on why we must go to war or interfere in the affairs of another sovereign state. Zionist penetration of American culture vast and insidious.

    Crypto-Israeli activism has contaminated all quarters of Western civilization, including law, journalism, banking, immigration policies, entertainment, foreign policy and foreign aid, higher education and now, the coordinated, international, pro-Zionist push to criminalize Free Speech or the right of boycott when it upsets Jews.

    Petras's concerns are legit... but consider that under Trump, the Syria War has pretty much come to an end. For awhile Trump talked big about doing something in Syria.. but didn't do much and if anything let Russia and Syrians destroy ISIS.

    So, maybe Trump is just making big talk or creating smoke to ensure there will be no fire.
    I hope that's true as another war will be crazy.

    But how will it play out if there is a war?

    Zionists will support the war, but the Progs will oppose it. (Progs went along with Obama cuz he's a black guy. But war under Trump may finally make the 'left' anti-war again, as during Bushy yrs). When Zionists being pro-war and 'left' being anti-war, will it lead to a breach?

    And how will NYT react? Surely, it has plenty of Jews who want Iran crushed. But it is also anti-Trump and officially of the 'left'.

    Thank goodness Israel has a strong leader in Netanyahu who defends Israel’s security and is feared by Israel’s enemies.

    He’s making the country detested, not feared. Gives Jews a bad name too, just as many Jewish anti-Zionists predicted.

    Jews who know their own history should be aware that such a state of affairs will inevitably lead to a new wave of Jew-hatred; the antisemitism of tomorrow will assert that Jews not only profiteered from the presence of foreign big powers in that region but had actually plotted it and hence are guilty of the consequences…

    -Hannah Arendt, Zionism Reconsidered, Jewish Writings p 345

    Netanyahu is one of the world’s worst “anti-Semites*.”

    *”Anti-Semite” as commonly used is a really dumb term, but I’m using it in the usual manner anyway. Note that Arendt calls the phenomenon what it really is,i.e., Jew-hatred.

    So called ‘kristallnacht’ was a reaction to the assassination of a German diplomat by a Jew.

    Now I understand Hitler’s rage I don’t condone the genocide but understand it since no mainstream historian ever gives a context to that shocking atrocity, it’s as if his anti-semitism was something metaphysical, irrational something utterly inexplicable like he was infected by some virus from outer space. But this article provides a much needed context for his monstrous rage.

    Even a foreigner like me is outraged that Americans have been reduced to being Zionist meat puppets. What a shameful state of affairs for such a proud nation.

    The fact that Trump can be led to war is one more proof that Trump has less than a stellar mind. Once again demonstrating that you don't have to be smart to be rich.

    Only the most delusional believe Donald Trump is highly intelligent.

    I supported the man because I hoped he was at least smart enough to know that he was not that smart and would listen to people like Bannon.

    Instead he is listening to the Zionists.

    Wow! It appears that Petras is following Phil Giraldi’s lead and has dropped all pretenses of propriety and is speaking, bluntly and brutally, truth to power.
     
    Until recently "Propriety" meant the MSM line on Israel, but after WMD and 9/11, it has all become so fake (ref. the points in this article), that even the dumbest Americans are starting to sit up and take notice.

    They're don't actually know that each of them (taxpayers), have been put about $ 23.000 in debt to pay for Middle East wars, but they know that something's not right, and most of them seem to be realizing that their hero Donald Trump has sold them out.

    Their "borderless warfare state" has become an empty can kicked along the road by Israel and US Zionists.

    It does appear Trump has sold out on this one, but, frankly, Hildebeast would have been no different on this issue anyway. At least with Trump in office, we get entertained by fireworks as the country goes down the sh*thole.

    It just might be the last conflict we’ll have with that particular parasite.
     
    Deo volente!

    Petras’s concerns are legit… but consider that under Trump, the Syria War has pretty much come to an end. For awhile Trump talked big about doing something in Syria.. but didn’t do much and if anything let Russia and Syrians destroy ISIS.

    So, maybe Trump is just making big talk or creating smoke to ensure there will be no fire.
    I hope that’s true as another war will be crazy.

    But how will it play out if there is a war?

    Zionists will support the war, but the Progs will oppose it. (Progs went along with Obama cuz he’s a black guy. But war under Trump may finally make the ‘left’ anti-war again, as during Bushy yrs). When Zionists being pro-war and ‘left’ being anti-war, will it lead to a breach?

    And how will NYT react? Surely, it has plenty of Jews who want Iran crushed. But it is also anti-Trump and officially of the ‘left’.

    50 billion from a Saudi prince is pocket change, especially considering what they get in return.

    Here are more links on Israel being a xenophobic theocracy.
    A person, group, country, cannot heap so much abuse, murder, vile hatred against the Other (i.e. Palestinians) for 70 years and not eventually implode.
    IMO…Israel is destroying itself and even if it wanted to backtrack ( never! of course) there in now, no turning back. It is a degenerate society against Others and against itself.

    Israel is devouring itself from the inside.
    It is this slow but progressive devouring of their own ( and the Other) , where the tiring and overly used phrase ” Self- hating Jews”, fit perfectly.

    Jews have been holding on to those long ago gone and dead Nazis’ sleeves in what can only be liken to a psychopathic Death Grip.
    This time Jews will not be able to blame those old dead German corpses on Israel ‘s self- perpetrating demise. Never being able to discern the whys of their repeated history and always arrogant, thinking themselves to be ” special ” and entitled above Others, the Jews , once again, will do themselves in.

    Funny how white liberals and alt-righters have hatred of the Jews in common.

    You forgot the Muslims. Everybody hates the Jews, even the blacks hate the Jews, the blacks that the Jews hold so dear, their fellow oppressed. Jews today and throughout history have often shown themselves to be a deviant, vindictive lot who observe no moral code, driven by greed and lust, and completely untrustworthy. Only a fool would trust a Jew. Everything the Jews touch turns to shite. They turned the whole Middle East to shite (although with plenty of help from the equally shite Muslim horde). They turned our media, academia, judiciary, Wall Street, Hollywood, Silicon Valley and Washington DC to shite. They turned the UK parliament and the entire British aristocracy to shite. They turned all of Europe to shite, not once, twice but now for a 3rd time.

    I used to admire the Jews. They were well educated and successful in spite of all the perceived anti-semitism. But somewhere along the way they’ve lost their ways. Call it WASP envy. They went off the rails when they decided to destroy WASP culture. Unchecked power always corrupts. The media and judiciary are supposed to be our watchdogs, but since they are all owned by Jews all they’ve been doing is covering up and justifying all the Jews’ misdeeds – financial fraud, electoral fraud, debauchery, stifling of dissent, fake news, outright lies, identity politics, meddling in other countries’ affairs, starting one war after another on behalf of Israel. All are covered up or justified away by our media and judiciary to protect their own.

    It’s taken me a while but I’m finally woke. The Jews need some serious introspection. They cannot continue down this path. For the sake of their own survival, as well as the rest of the world’s, they need to discover their souls and for once in their history, embrace honor and integrity.

    Islam is not just a “religion”, but is an all-encompassing foreign social and political system that governs all aspect of every moslem’s life. As such, NO Constitutional “First Amendment” protections need be afforded this foreign political system and their adherents. In fact, ALL moslems who hold American citizenship should be required to (re)affirm their loyalty to the United States.

    The only way for Islam to “reform itself” is to separate the spiritual aspect of the “religion” from the social and political part. Christianity did just that, hundreds of years ago… It is long overdue for Islam to reform itself–if it can…

    Islam is actually an arabicized version of judaism. Both the talmud and the koran have virtually identical passages in which the “supremacy” of each respective group is proclaimed. Both texts declare that non-believers are “less than human” and are to be used for the advantage of each respective cult. You can bet that, if push came to shove, jews would align with the muslims as they are of the same cloth.

    Add to that, ALL dual-citizenship should be abolished. There is no room in the United States for those who hold “dual-citizenship”. One cannot have split loyalties…split loyalties have contributed to our present situation.

    There is another “group” of dual-citizenship” types that deserve strict scrutiny. There are approximately 40 or so congresscritters who hold dual-citizenship with a “certain little country” in the middle east. In fact, many of these congresscritters are given all-expenses paid “vacations” to this “certain little country” as a “reward” for doing that country’s bidding. There are THOUSANDS of high-level federal “policy wonks” and government employees who also hold dual-citizenship with that “certain little country”. It is reasonable to question who they really work for–the USA or “that certain other country”.

    It was sickening to see our politicians slobber all over themselves to PROVE that they were unconditional supporters of that “certain little country” in the middle east…just who the hell do they work for? Certainly not for the interests of the American people and the United States…they should renounce their United States citizenship and deport themselves to that “certain little country” in the middle east…

    Can you blame anyone for thinking Iran is next?
     
    Yes I can. Very easily.

    1. Clarke is referencing a conversation that took place during the Bush administration. That administration is gone and the neocons in it who pushed the Iraq war have been permanently discredited and removed from power.

    2. Syria was destroyed by civil war, not the US. The US set up no fly zones after the Syrian rebels had already carved out territory. The recent gains Assad has made against ISIS in Syria would not have happened if not for US backed Kurdish and Iraqi forces putting the squeeze on ISIS in conjunction with US air strikes. The US also has made some token bombings of runways in convoys that have done no real damage and certainly haven't created any of the images of burned out buildings in urban areas that Paleocons love so much.

    3. Lebanon was destroyed by Israel as part of a war which Lebanon started. Had nothing to do with the US.

    4. Libya was a civil war that Obama did everything he could to stay out of. He was finally dragged kicking and screaming into intervening by France and the UK when those countries realized that they were unable to topple Qaddafi after promising to do so. Hard to blame a nefarious US plot when the US didn't even want to intervene.

    5. Somalia has been in a constant state of civil war for decades, it hasn't been destroyed by the US.

    6. Sudan has been in a long term civil war with it's Arab Muslim population waging genocide against the black Christian South Sudanese. Has nothing to do with the US.

    Clarke is referencing a conversation that took place during the Bush administration. That administration is gone and the neocons in it who pushed the Iraq war have been permanently discredited and removed from power.

    The neocons were neither “permanently discredited” nor “removed from power”. They were still very much in control when Hillary was Secretary of State, that’s why the Libyan invasion and the CIA interference in Syria that started the civil war. They may have been temporarily on hiatus when John Kerry became SoS, but thanks to Trump they are back in full force.

    Syria was destroyed by civil war, not the US.

    But what started the civil war? Many believe it was the CIA under Clinton who started the civil war by arming a bunch of ragtag street protesters into full fledged opposition fighters. Why? Because of a gas pipeline that Qatar wants to build to Western Europe that must go through Syria. Qatar and Saudi Arabia are big donors to the Clinton campaign, and Western Europe wants the pipeline for energy independence from Russia. Read this article by Robert Kennedy, Jr. in Politico:

    https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2016/02/rfk-jr-why-arabs-dont-trust-america-213601

    At the end of the day, the Middle East will never see peace. These savages have been fighting one another for the past 10,000 years, since the dawn of mankind, and will be fighting for another 10,000, or until the last 2 men standing inflict mortal wounds on each other, whichever comes first. That’s why the US needs to stay the heck out of all the Mideast conflicts. Israel and their supporters in the US will bring the American empire to its demise.

    I wonder if Bibi knows what's he's doing, if indeed he wants the USA to attack Iran.
    Nobody outside Iran knows what the Iranians have built deep in their rocks, as far as I know Iranian rockets can reach Israel.
    These deep rock systems cannot be destroyed by nuclear weapons.
    Then there are the 90 or so atomic warheads, said to have disappeared from Ukraine to Iran.
    Again, the assertion is that Iran in 2005 succeeded in circumventing the locks on these bombs.
    Why Israel consistenly keeps its suicide course is beyond my comprehension.
    Alas an Israeli suicide may be the end of all human life on this world.

    Can you blame anyone for thinking Iran is next?
     
    Yes I can. Very easily.

    1. Clarke is referencing a conversation that took place during the Bush administration. That administration is gone and the neocons in it who pushed the Iraq war have been permanently discredited and removed from power.

    2. Syria was destroyed by civil war, not the US. The US set up no fly zones after the Syrian rebels had already carved out territory. The recent gains Assad has made against ISIS in Syria would not have happened if not for US backed Kurdish and Iraqi forces putting the squeeze on ISIS in conjunction with US air strikes. The US also has made some token bombings of runways in convoys that have done no real damage and certainly haven't created any of the images of burned out buildings in urban areas that Paleocons love so much.

    3. Lebanon was destroyed by Israel as part of a war which Lebanon started. Had nothing to do with the US.

    4. Libya was a civil war that Obama did everything he could to stay out of. He was finally dragged kicking and screaming into intervening by France and the UK when those countries realized that they were unable to topple Qaddafi after promising to do so. Hard to blame a nefarious US plot when the US didn't even want to intervene.

    5. Somalia has been in a constant state of civil war for decades, it hasn't been destroyed by the US.

    6. Sudan has been in a long term civil war with it's Arab Muslim population waging genocide against the black Christian South Sudanese. Has nothing to do with the US.

    Clarke is referencing a conversation that took place during the Bush administration. That administration is gone and the neocons in it who pushed the Iraq war have been permanently discredited and removed from power.

    Funny how white liberals and alt-righters have hatred of the Jews in common.
     
    You forgot the Muslims. Everybody hates the Jews, even the blacks hate the Jews, the blacks that the Jews hold so dear, their fellow oppressed. Jews today and throughout history have often shown themselves to be a deviant, vindictive lot who observe no moral code, driven by greed and lust, and completely untrustworthy. Only a fool would trust a Jew. Everything the Jews touch turns to shite. They turned the whole Middle East to shite (although with plenty of help from the equally shite Muslim horde). They turned our media, academia, judiciary, Wall Street, Hollywood, Silicon Valley and Washington DC to shite. They turned the UK parliament and the entire British aristocracy to shite. They turned all of Europe to shite, not once, twice but now for a 3rd time.

    I used to admire the Jews. They were well educated and successful in spite of all the perceived anti-semitism. But somewhere along the way they've lost their ways. Call it WASP envy. They went off the rails when they decided to destroy WASP culture. Unchecked power always corrupts. The media and judiciary are supposed to be our watchdogs, but since they are all owned by Jews all they've been doing is covering up and justifying all the Jews' misdeeds - financial fraud, electoral fraud, debauchery, stifling of dissent, fake news, outright lies, identity politics, meddling in other countries' affairs, starting one war after another on behalf of Israel. All are covered up or justified away by our media and judiciary to protect their own.

    It's taken me a while but I'm finally woke. The Jews need some serious introspection. They cannot continue down this path. For the sake of their own survival, as well as the rest of the world's, they need to discover their souls and for once in their history, embrace honor and integrity.

    As for today, the US and Israel are carefully protecting ISIS (Al Qaeda, Al Nusra) from any harm that could be inflicted by the Syrian army of the sovereign state of Syria. http://turcopolier.typepad.com/sic_semper_tyrannis/2017/11/httpssouthfrontorgsyrian-war-al-bukamal-is-liberated-what-now.html#comments
    "...Israel has no problems with the ISIS-linked Khalid ibn al-Walid Army, which operates near its forces. The so-called local armed opposition does not seek to fight ISIS there either." - In short, Israel trains, supports, and provides medical care for ISIS jihadists, whereas the docile US follows the orders.
    "The US says that it needs this garrison [in at-Tanf area] to fight ISIS while in fact it is just preventing Syria and Iraq from using the Damascus-Baghdad highway as a supply line. US forces respond with airstrikes and shelling to any Syrian Arab Army (SAA) attempts to reach at-Tanf."
    Who has invited the US personnel to Syria? – ISIS and Israel? Syria is not their country. The US presence in Syria violates internationals law and constitutes the war of aggression (remember Nuremberg Protocols?)
    What does the Pentagon say to the young wounded veterans of the "war on terror?" -- something about "democracy on the march" most likely... The truth is, the US has been fighting the wars of aggression to please the banksters (FedReserve), oilmen, and the lunatics of "master race" (represented by the Jewish Lobby) who want their supremacist dream of Eretz Israel come true by any means.

  93. The Jews state that their Messiah will kill most of the Goyim and enslave the remainder.

    Barbera Specter admitted Jews “play a leading role in multiculturalism”.

    Jews are following their religion as they work to genocide the white race.

    Jews openly call goyim “insects” and “animals”.

    Jews call gentile revolt against jewish maltreatment “anti-Semitism”.

    Funny how this author seriously thinks that the US might invade and occupy Iran. Of course it wouldn't. If Trump ordered the US to strike Iran, it would likely ally with the Israeli Air Force in doing so.
    Also, the Palestinians are Jordanians, "Palestine" doesn't really exist. People like this author who think hostilities would cease if you gave Muslims, who elect terrorists to be their government officials, more land, and reduced Israel's are hilarious. You really think things would be hunky dory if "Palestine" was a state? Israel would have be indefensible in such case.

    Trump will be one of the strongest pro-Israel president's we've had in awhile, and I believe this is a good thing. They are the only democracy in the Middle East and a staunch ally.

    BDS is nothing more the one of the oldest forms of hatred--hatred of the Jews. To protest Israel's supposed "human rights abuses" and think nothing of the plethora of human right's abuses that occur DAILY in the Middle East is very revealing. It shows that it's simply anti-semitism that's driving BDS. Funny how white liberals and alt-righters have hatred of the Jews in common.

    Thanks for the referral, Robin.

    Based on the review you linked to, this should be a very interesting read:

    Of course, [Neff] is not breaking new ground in claiming that this shift has been overwhelmingly in favor of Israel. However, he provides meticulous documentation of these changes in policy, which is what gives his narrative such shock value. Fatalistically, many of us have come to accept uncritical and unprincipled support for Israel as a fundamental of American policy, so it comes almost as a surprise to be reminded that Washington once did have principles on the issue, and was prepared to push for solutions that in some measure were unpalatable to Israel. Alas, as the title suggests, those pillars of principle are now toppled, and AIPAC, their toppler, is on better ground than Ozymandias in saying "Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair."

    1 Plan to destabilize and occupy Syria from distance was on the cards from 1948. That has been periodically resurrected by different administrations in different diguises .
    2 2006 war in Lebanon was green lighted and precipitated by Cheney gang .
    3 Somalia in 2002 had already moved away sig ificantly from the chaos and disorganization of 1992 . Bush jr put the country right back to 1992.
    4 Hillary saw an opportunity or saw a lot of opportunities and provoked the Libyan descent into chaos by working both militarily , diplomatically and by allowing different conspiracy theories mushroom . Those lies were used to carry out diplomatic attack on Libya .

    5 S Sudan is American creation and it now it comes close to capturing the essential charecteritics of a hypothetical nation that could be imagined out of the current state of affairs of the following countries- Afghanistan , Hondurus, Haiti, Libya , Western Ukraine , and post Irma Peurto Rico combined .

    Islam is not just a “religion”, but is an all-encompassing foreign social and political system that governs all aspect of every moslem’s life. As such, NO Constitutional “First Amendment” protections need be afforded this foreign political system and their adherents. In fact, ALL moslems who hold American citizenship should be required to (re)affirm their loyalty to the United States.

    The only way for Islam to “reform itself” is to separate the spiritual aspect of the “religion” from the social and political part. Christianity did just that, hundreds of years ago… It is long overdue for Islam to reform itself–if it can…

    Islam is actually an arabicized version of judaism. Both the talmud and the koran have virtually identical passages in which the “supremacy” of each respective group is proclaimed. Both texts declare that non-believers are “less than human” and are to be used for the advantage of each respective cult. You can bet that, if push came to shove, jews would align with the muslims as they are of the same cloth.

    Add to that, ALL dual-citizenship should be abolished. There is no room in the United States for those who hold “dual-citizenship”. One cannot have split loyalties…split loyalties have contributed to our present situation.

    There is another “group” of dual-citizenship” types that deserve strict scrutiny. There are approximately 40 or so congresscritters who hold dual-citizenship with a “certain little country” in the middle east. In fact, many of these congresscritters are given all-expenses paid “vacations” to this “certain little country” as a “reward” for doing that country’s bidding. There are THOUSANDS of high-level federal “policy wonks” and government employees who also hold dual-citizenship with that “certain little country”. It is reasonable to question who they really work for–the USA or “that certain other country”.

    It was sickening to see our politicians slobber all over themselves to PROVE that they were unconditional supporters of that “certain little country” in the middle east…just who the hell do they work for? Certainly not for the interests of the American people and the United States…they should renounce their United States citizenship and deport themselves to that “certain little country” in the middle east…

From the Lavon affair (a “false flag” operation designed to draw the USA into a war with Egypt by making it appear that Arabs bombed the U S interests section–a planted bomb exploded prematurely, exposing this as a Israeli planned and executed “incident”) to the deliberate attack on the USS Liberty (NOT “misidentification”, but another attempt to draw the USA into a war with Egypt and to hide the deliberate massacre of civilians in an Egyptian city, Deir Yassin), to Jonathon Pollard and NSA spying utilizing a company named Amdocs (which handles all US telephone billing records), you will find that Israel looks out for Israel’s interests ONLY. Normally, there is nothing wrong with a country looking out after it’s own interests, BUT Israel has a nasty habit of spying (and setting up) it’s “friends”.

    Who the hell died and appointed Israel the “master” of the middle east?? Iran (and all other middle-eastern countries) KNOWS that any nuclear “discharge” would affect the whole middle east . . . Any country that possesses nukes is not stupid . . . Israel has over a hundred nukes, manufactured with stolen American classified technology, refuses inspections of its nuclear facilities and is, in general, a “pain in the ass” to the rest of the world, along with (blackmailed) “big brother” United States of America.

    It is no secret that the U S State Department is infested with dual-nationality Israeli-Americans who form (and foment) the bulk of our neocon “foreign policy” straight from Tel Aviv. In fact there are 40 or so congressmen and senators with dual-nationality “ties” to Israel.

    Most people are unaware that Israel holds a “Damocles sword” over the world. Any attack on Israel will be met with a nuclear device being detonated in a city of Israel’s choosing. Israel calls this the “Samson option” and is very real.

    Israel refuses to abide by IAEA guidelines concerning its nukes as its nukes are already distributed around the world. Israel would not be able to produce all of them as most of them are not in Israel, proper. No delivery systems are needed as Israel’s nukes are already “in place”. Look for another “false flag” operation with the blame being put on Iran or Syria. You can bet that some Iranian or Syrian passports will be found in the rubble.

    There are forty or so congressmen, senators and high-level policy “wonks” infecting the U S government who hold “dual citizenship” with Israel. Such dual citizenship must be strictly prohibited. Those holding dual citizenship must be required to renounce said foreign citizenship. Refusal to do so should result in immediate deportation with loss of American citizenship. Present and former holders of dual citizenship should not be allowed to serve in any American governmental capacity.

    Nomination for the list, [ESSENTIAL] Readings for America First, NOT ISRAEL.
    Fallen Pillars: U.S. Policy Towards Palestine and Israel Since 1945
    by Donald Neff

    Review by: Ian Williams
    https://www.jstor.org/stable/41859004

    "Fallen Pillars is an astonishing feat that could only have been written by Donald Neff, who surely knows and has documented more about Palestine-Israel and U.S. relations with it than any other writer in English. Serious students of the Middle East should read it, and then read it again." Andrew I. Killgore

    Thanks for the referral, Robin.

    Based on the review you linked to, this should be a very interesting read:

    Of course, [Neff] is not breaking new ground in claiming that this shift has been overwhelmingly in favor of Israel. However, he provides meticulous documentation of these changes in policy, which is what gives his narrative such shock value. Fatalistically, many of us have come to accept uncritical and unprincipled support for Israel as a fundamental of American policy, so it comes almost as a surprise to be reminded that Washington once did have principles on the issue, and was prepared to push for solutions that in some measure were unpalatable to Israel. Alas, as the title suggests, those pillars of principle are now toppled, and AIPAC, their toppler, is on better ground than Ozymandias in saying “Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair.”

    We thought we voted for MAGA, turns out we voted for MIGA, Make Israel Great Again!

    We thought we voted for Trump, turns out we voted for the new crown prince of USA, Jared Kushner, favorite son of Israel, and son of a convicted fraudster. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

    We thought we voted for draining of the DC swamp, turns out we voted for replenishing of the DC swamp.

    Trump turns out to be as stupid as he sounds, big-ly. The joke is on us.

    The joke is on us.

    And so are the bills.

    Yup get one buch of goyim to kill off another bunch just like in WW1 & WW2. Stupid goyim Christians killed off tens of millions of other Christians for no good reason.

    The Israeli project is terrorist by its nature and the Jews, as a tribe, have been treasonous towards their host countries, from Persia to Germany and Russia and now the US.

    The crazed cultural Jews threaten to attack the whole world with their hidden nukes - this must end!

    The world must put sanctions on Israel until they give up all their nuke and other means of WMD.

    As for today, the US and Israel are carefully protecting ISIS (Al Qaeda, Al Nusra) from any harm that could be inflicted by the Syrian army of the sovereign state of Syria. http://turcopolier.typepad.com/sic_semper_tyrannis/2017/11/httpssouthfrontorgsyrian-war-al-bukamal-is-liberated-what-now.html#comments
    “…Israel has no problems with the ISIS-linked Khalid ibn al-Walid Army, which operates near its forces. The so-called local armed opposition does not seek to fight ISIS there either.” – In short, Israel trains, supports, and provides medical care for ISIS jihadists, whereas the docile US follows the orders.
    “The US says that it needs this garrison [in at-Tanf area] to fight ISIS while in fact it is just preventing Syria and Iraq from using the Damascus-Baghdad highway as a supply line. US forces respond with airstrikes and shelling to any Syrian Arab Army (SAA) attempts to reach at-Tanf.”
    Who has invited the US personnel to Syria? – ISIS and Israel? Syria is not their country. The US presence in Syria violates internationals law and constitutes the war of aggression (remember Nuremberg Protocols?)
    What does the Pentagon say to the young wounded veterans of the “war on terror?” — something about “democracy on the march” most likely… The truth is, the US has been fighting the wars of aggression to please the banksters (FedReserve), oilmen, and the lunatics of “master race” (represented by the Jewish Lobby) who want their supremacist dream of Eretz Israel come true by any means. There are some four million dead civilians, the victims of the neocon/ziocon projects in the Middle East
