    Ummm…It should be clear to all that the US long ago abdicated any claim to common decency or common sense, much less to being a sensible player in the world. The US is still a big, powerful nation, so it will throw some weight around for a while longer. The US government conducts an immoral, murderous and ultimately self-destructive foreign policy that reflects the values of its selfish, jingoistic electorate (evidence the electoral fate of anyone even mildly critical of US policy). Since there is absolutely no hope of the US ever doing the right thing out of honest conviction, righteous people should aim to contribute to the further erosion of the US economy. When the US finally crumbles economically, its people will be punished for their oppression of others, the US war machine will be weakened, and voters might actually start to make choices between feeding themselves or feeding tyrannical allies of the US.

    Of course, no moral person wants the criminal-robber state to get new attack weapons. But, the selfish, immoral idiots (95% of the voting US population) are in control, so there is no stopping that particular event. In the long run, however, if the US further erodes its credibility in the world, all the better. The sooner the US runs out of economic power and political credibility, the sooner it will lose its influence in world politics, which influence is only ever bad.
    The call now should not be to patriotism. Rather, the call should be to doing what is good for humanity as a whole. What is bad for the US is ultimately good for the world.

    Thomas,

    Your gleeful anticipation of a U.S. downfall is understandable, but naive. I’m not denying the downfall is coming, I’m saying it isn’t something people should be welcoming. Already, the discrepancy between the American Dream and present reality has the electorate looking to simple-minded ideologues to restore their glory. Try to imagine a scenario that doesn’t end very badly for the international community if Sarah Palin, or some other buffoon, ends up in power. When a country as powerful, self-deluded and well armed as the U.S. goes down, the suffering isn’t limited to the area within their own borders.

    To Rob:
    The US has maintained a criminal, immoral foreign policy the past 60 years in the Middle East, during the inglorious peak of its affluence and power. It pursued incredibly merciless wars of destruction and murder in Central America during the affluent 1980′s (and before). Affluence is not the answer. Ancient Rome, the Soviet Union and the UK stopped bothering other people to a large extent as their economies weakened. Why wouldn’t the same dynamic function with the US? Improvement or change will never come from within the US alone. Change will come when the rest of the world starts ignoring and resisting the US as it becomes economically feeble.

    Thomas,

    I’m not apologizing for U.S. foreign policy. I agree that world powers rise and then fall. My point is that the world has never faced an entity like the U.S. before. American exceptionalism is a concept so deeply ingrained in the identity of it’s people, and their military capabilities are so vast, that to expect them to quietly and peacefully relinquish power over world events as they grow weaker is unreasonable.

    That they will fall from dominance eventually is a virtual certainty. To wish for it to happen soon is to court calamity.

    I strongly believe that simple people power, i.e. people organising themselves via internet campaigning could stop this situation. And I still believe that many American and Israeli voices would support
    and sign up to a campaign to stop this particular deal.
    I think this is a very good article and have shared it.
    Also am sending a request to http://www.Avaaz.org to mount a campaign to
    register the world’s discontent
    Thank you to the author x

    They have murdered one state and or states solution back in 1890s!

    Theodor Hartzl

    When Theodore Hertzl, the ideological founder of the Zionist movements in the 1890s, was asked what he proposed to do with the indigenous Palestinian population when his “state of the Jews” becomes a reality, he replied, “We will quietly spirit them across the border”.

    Vladimir Jabotinsky

    In 1923 Vladimir Jabotinsky, leading intellectual of the Zionist movement and father of the right wing of that movement,… wrote: “Zionist colonization must either stop, or else proceed regardless of the native population. Which means that it can proceed and develop only under the protection of a power that is independent of the native population – behind an The Iron Wall , which the native population cannot breach.”
    First published in Russian under the title O Zheleznoi Stene in Rassvyet, 4 November 1923.

    Joseph Weitz

    Joseph Weitz, the head of the Jewish Agency’s colonization department, confirmed this in his 1940 diary. “It must be clear”, he wrote, “that there is no room for both people’s together in this country … not one (Arab) village, not one tribe should be left”. Source:

    Now the question is what’s the real agenda behind Washington’s latest submission to Israel? My personal take on this would be:

    Obama is no match to Benj Netanyahu when it come to ‘deception’. Obama in fact is providing cover to Benji’s plan to legitimize the Jewish occupation of Palestine and fulfiling the dream of every former Israeli government during the last 25 year – that’s pardon of US Jewish spy Jonathan Pollard.

    If everything go as planned – Benji will be negotiating with Mahmoud Abbas who had completed his mandate of PA President in the first week of January 2009. Once, he sign on the Israeli-approved ‘two-state’ agreement – which though will be against the wishes of the great majority of nine million Palestinians – will be blessed by the western-puppet Arab rulers. As Hamas will continue its rule in Gaza Strip, Abbas on the orders from his masters in Washington and Tel Aviv will eventually request Arab governments to help him to remove Hamas’ elected government and thus start a new civil war for the benefit of Israel.

    Both Zionists are playing the game which was suggested by Israeli journalist Gideon Levy early this month. He suggested that Israel should negotiate a two-state solution with Abbas and hand-over Golan Heights to Syria. This Iran will lose its three Middle East allies (Hamas, Syria and Hizbullah) – and therefore, it would be easy for USrael to bring-in a regime change in Tehran.

    Iran is being threatened by the USA; however, the war with Iran will also prove to be a turning point in history as the world will see another world power in shape of Iran taking the world arena for its court to address.

    USA is arming Israel to its brink, and has been given arms as a tool of bribe to calm down the rhetoric of the AIPAC and other Jew Organizations to get the Media controlled by Jews in line with USA programs, however, the ever sleeping population of the West must understand that a war of words is now almost over, the war if any extended in the Mid-East, would be a final round, this has been understood by the Mid-Eastern side with utmost clarity.

    Blatant statement of Eric Cantor and US media cover up is revealing! They undermine USA and entire administration in favor of Israel.

    If there is anything that really offends American Jews, it’s the accusation that they put Israel’s interests over those of their own country. Nonetheless, it seems there are those who do. And important ones at that. Incoming House Majority Leader Eric Cantor for example. Cantor, in a recent meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu, apparently told the Israeli prime minister “I’m with you, not my president” and promised Netanyahu that the new Republican majority in the House would “serve as a check on the Administration.”

    As the only Jewish Republican in the U.S. Congress, Cantor may feel a special responsibility to exploit his position for Israel’s purposes, but he should at least be discrete about it. Even his fellow Republicans may balk at the vaguely treasonous act of expressing loyalty to a foreign leader over his own.
