Some topics are simply taboo...

Caption: American politicians always have the best interest of USA at heart...

Caption: Richard Perle, Douglas Feith - Feith was an Under Secretary of Defense for Policy for United States, I still do not know what exactly Perle's job is in the American government... They both were caught passing secrets to Israeli embassy

I was reading through various blogs today and came upon this gem:
Lieberman, Bennett, And Kristol See Petraeus Hearing As ‘An Argument’ For ‘Going Into Iran on

On a mainstream blog, read by thousands, hundreds of thousands of people, the proof of everything I was saying, of everything Phillip Weiss' blog has been saying.

The fact that for the neocons, both from the left and right side of the political spectrum in America, Israel is the number one issue, if not THE issue.

Everything else is just window dressing, a facade, for the stupified American goyim.

Here is Lieberman, Bennett, Kristol, using the pathetic
pathetic Petraues hearing in Congress, to once again make a case for American war with Iran.

The headline might as well have screamed: "Jewish, Likudnik, far right neocons want America to again shed blood for Israel - this time the target is Iran"

I delved into the comments and shuddered.

The people commenting on the story were confused, angry, but did not understand exactly why these neocons want America in another war.

So I made the case with two comments of my own:

Comment one:

…Insert swear word here….

This is so transparent!

How much PROOF do people need about the whole dual loyalty issue and the power of the pro-Israel lobby and pro-Israel activists masquerading as American Citizens…

There is only one matter a priori with these neocons - “Is it good for Israel?” Everything else is window dressing.

Note that the actual action MAY NOT be good for Israel but in their own minds it is (I would argue that turning Iraq into a Shia religious state is against Israeli interests but these are Likudnik zealots, the far right of Israeli and American political spectrum. Also, I would argue that attacking Iran now will destabilize the whole Middle East region, making a more dangerous situation to Israeli interests - but then again, I am sane.).



I run a blog which (among other issues) tackles the power of the lobby.

This article makes a case, with multiple sources, about the power of the lobby and how much of an (incredible, insane, unfathomable) influence it has over our American political system, and indeed how it shapes American foreign policy - and has done so, for decades.

Of course, when these facts are brought forth, as they are difficult to ignore and only a willfully blind person will not see them - the cry of “you are an anti semite!” will spring up, stifling all discussion…

Well you know what - not any more.

Not another war.

Not with my kids’ blood, arms, legs, death…

There was no reaction to the comment at all, no discussion of the role the pro-Israel lobby, and its vanguard the neocons, have played in getting the USA into the war with Iraq and their role in trying to get America into another war - with Iran.

The usual comments were all about "neoclowns", "they are crazy", "this is all for GE, Haliburton, Lockheed" types of arguments.

So - these highly educated, highly intelligent neocons are crazy, stupid, dumb and this is all for corporate America interests anyway.

I was exasperated.

I blew a gasket.

Perhaps if I provided some background to these clueless people, a short timeline with explanation of what exactly is going on?

Thinking to myself "sounds like a good plan, that!", I wrote my

Comment Two:
No one is seeing here how cynically the Likud/neocon activists in American establishment/government are manipulating the USA?

The only thing they worry about is “What is best for Israel” or, perhaps a better version, “What is best for my LIKUD, FAR RIGHT version of Israel?”.

A de-fanging of Iraq (and turning it into a Mad Max anarchy state) and doing the same with Iran (and then Syria) was in the original Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm, which was a paper written by neocons on how to make Israel more secure.

The targets to “take out” for Israeli interests were Iraq first, then Iran, then Syria. The leader of this policy analysis team was Richard Perle.

Then Project for the New American Century was created, to implement and put into action the “Clean Break” plan.

And guess what?

It was and still is being put into motion - this plan is reality.

Calling these people “war hawks” or “right wingers” or “war mongers” is disengenious.

They are not insane - it is right there, in the open, the plan for (Likud, far right version, opposed by most Israelis actually) making Israel secure - using American military and money.

Anybody reading this blog (and who is knowledgeable about politics in the USA, even from skimming Reuters/AP and watching TV "news", and is not blinded by AIPAC ideology) knows that this is the short version of what happened in modern American history.

First, the A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm policy recommendation paper was written by Richard Perle and other neocons.

The "Clean Break" paper was written for then Israeli prime minister, Bibi Netanyahu, and stated that for Israel to be secure, Iraq, Iran and then Syria would have to be "taken out".

In that order.

Yes, REALLY, that is what the "Clean Break" paper was about - go read it yourself here:
"Israel can shape its strategic environment, in cooperation with Turkey and Jordan, by weakening, containing, and even rolling back Syria. This effort can focus on removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq — an important Israeli strategic objective in its own right — as a means of foiling Syria’s regional ambitions. "

"An effective approach, and one with which American can sympathize, would be if Israel seized the strategic initiative along its northern borders by engaging Hizballah, Syria, and Iran, as the principal agents of aggression in Lebanon, including by:

* striking Syria’s drug-money and counterfeiting infrastructure in Lebanon, all of which focuses on Razi Qanan.

* paralleling Syria’s behavior by establishing the precedent that Syrian territory is not immune to attacks emanating from Lebanon by Israeli proxy forces.

* striking Syrian military targets in Lebanon, and should that prove insufficient, striking at select targets in Syria proper. "

So lets not kid ourselves - Israel views the destabilization of Iraq, Iran and Syria as its national goals.

So what happened after the "Clean Break" study, written by American Citizens for Israel?

Why, the Project for the New American Century was born.

Think about the dates.

"Clean Break" was written in 1996.
PNAC is founded by Jewish neocons in 1997.

PNAC is then, simply, an organization to carry out the "Clean Break" goals to make Israel more secure in the Middle East, by using American military and money to accomplish those goals.

And that is what I wrote in my (very short) 2nd comment.

A few seconds later I logged onto the comment section on Think Progress and see "Awaiting Moderation" next to my comments.

Meanwhile, all the other comments, the sheep bleating about "Why are they doing this, they are crazy!", "war mongers!", "we cannot afford another war", bleat bleat bleat.

I copied my comments into my blog to save them.

Then, inevitably, my two comments will soon be deleted.

And that is when I saw red - I blew a gasket... I was angry...

Calling a spade a spade, calling neocons agents of a foreign power, showing that whether they are on the American Left or Right, Democrat or Republican, they ALL have one goal in mind - to do the lobby's bidding, to right now involve America in a new war with Iran... and then with Syria....

Acknowledging that "Clean Break" was written by American Citizens, Jewish-Americans, and that these same people later founded (and helped out with realizing the goals of) PNAC, is taboo.

Shouting "dual loyalty!" is taboo.

This is not allowed.

Off to the garbage bin your comments will go... once the moderator deletes them. Reported, unacceptable content, questioning the WHY of the neocons actions...

And, despite this being clear, as clear as a sunny day, to see by anybody with half a brain cell who has even a passing interest in American politics, the bleating sheep will not see it, will choose not to see it.

Bleat "war mongers", bleat "they are crazy", bleat "why are they doing this, another war?", bleat "war profiteers", bleat bleat bleat!


Well, all I can say - onward christian soldiers, onward to Iran... and then Syria... while the sheep, bleating and uncomprehending, are led the slaughter.

Bonus Material:
Just checked - those two comments are gone.
Unacceptable on a "liberal" blog.

Please note that my comments included links to the "Clean Break" article and PNAC webpage...

I hear ya (sadly). I have mostly stopped reading thinkprogress because I sense that it is really a wolf liberally draped in sheep's clothing. I have found that the main push-points of that blog to be a subtle scream to the following of some road best not taken.

... this is just my feeling, but I suggest that you just look at the headlines for a 30 day period -- I find the website akin to a Malkin hotair with an slightly different agenda.

It seems that so many want to take that road:

Why does and Gertrude Himmelfarb's son want the U.S. to invade Iran?

That son? William Kristol, preeminent chickenhawk, war monger and one of the forces behind the "Project for the New American Century"(PNAC), the REAL roadmap being used in the ME, not for peace, but used to wage endless wars against Israel's "existential" enemies.

A war fought by American kids, for the greater glory of Israel.

Kristol not only help found PNAC, he served as its chairman.

PNAC stated that American's would not get behind endless wars, unless, there was some kind of event, like a new Pearl Harbor.

From Wikipedia, here's that statement:

"Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor" (51)

And that new Pearl Harbor came on September 11, 2001, giving chickenhawks and war mongers like Kristol the excuse they'd been dreaming of--if not planning for--to help shove the U.S. into fighting endless wars in the ME.

What is Billy boy's philosophy? To get the U.S. stuck in the ME, fighting war after war for Israel. Kristol has been pimping for Israeli interests, putting the interests of a foreign country over his birth nation, America.

Kristol and his fellow travelers saw 9/11 not as a tragedy, but as an opportunity to push America into Israel's conflicts, as this article from the Atlantic Free Press shows:

As I've written elsewhere, "According to Scott McConnell, in the very first issue published after 9/11, the Weekly Standard 'laid down a line from which the magazine would not waver over the next 18 months.' Their line was 'to link Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden in virtually every paragraph, to join them at the hip in the minds of readers, and then lay out a strategy that actually gave attacking Saddam priority over eliminating al Qaeda.' [McConnell, "The Weekly Standard's War," The American Conservative, September 21, 2001

The editor of the Weekly Standard? William Kristol

As some knew back then and most of the world knows now, there was NO link between Saddam and al-Qaeda, but something so trifling as the truth doesn't stop these blood thirsty lunatics from cheerleading for an endless succession of ME wars, fought by the U.S. for the greater glory of an "Eretz Israel."

An Israel that would eventually include all of Occupied Palestine and Lebanon, and large chunks of Egypt, Syria and Jordan.
Plus, parts of Turkey and Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

That's our war on terror. A war in which Israel uses the armed might of the U.S. to terrorize those nations into becoming part and parcel of Israel. Land stolen by Israel with the U.S. paying for the theft in blood and wealth.

Kristol and his deranged band of war mongers now want the U.S. to bomb and or invade another of Israel's enemies, Iran.

This morning, there are news stories from London, to New York, to Tel Aviv, showing a purported Iranian launch site for long range ICBM's. A site that was just recently found.

There are hundreds of spy satellites circling the globe that have mapped every square inch of its terrain, and we're supposed to swallow this bunk that only now, this site was "discovered?"

If you believe that, i've got some yellow cake to sell you.

One of the main proponents of bombing Iran, Kristol, is all over the airwaves, babbling on about how the U.S. needs to hit Iran (For those that doubt Zionist control of the MSM, not only here in America, but world-wide, just keep your eyes on the never ending stream of hit pieces against Iran coming out in the next month)

This from a draft-dodging chickenhawk who was too scared to actually go and fight in the Vietnam War, but one who has no qualms about sending YOUR sons and daughters over to fight Israel's wars.

That Kristol is a fifth columnist for a foreign power is evident in the way he spews his foreign intrigues and agitprop all over the media.

Listen to what this Brainiac had to say about invading Iraq on February 20, 2003, Mr. Kristol incredibly gushed:

"If we free the people of Iraq, we will be respected in the Arab world."

Yes, Billy boy, they respect us alright. They respect the fact that we've turned Iraq into one, huge killing field and destroyed that nation.

Kristol, you're views are so delusional, that no self-respecting media outlet would hire you to write some more of your foaming at the mouth articles about the ME, that is, unless that rag is the New York Times, who recently hired you, to most likely fill the shoes, or should i say ladies pumps, of the departed and disgraced White House stenographer, Judith Miller.

Bill, old boy, there is such a thing as law, somewhere in this world and maybe you should keep in mind that according to international law, what you're doing, advocating war and war crimes, is in violation of that law, or as Robert Parry of Consortium News said on August, 21 2006:

"Under principles of international law applied from Nuremberg to Rwanda, propagandists who contribute to war crimes or encourage crimes against humanity can be put in the dock alongside the actual killers."

Keep that in mind Bill boy. Unless you want to be in the same dock as Condi Rice, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Cheney, Bush and the rest of your criminal gang.

Here, i'll leave you with an exchange Billy boy had with Stephen Colbert of the "Colbert Report" about PNAC:

Crooks and Liars | April 29 2006

Bill Kristol, who is one of the major players in the group called PNAC, joined the set of the "Colbert Report," and I think was taken off guard right at the outset of the show because he had to answer questions that our media never asks. PNAC envisioned America attacking the Middle East since the middle '90's and for some inexplicable reason (that was a joke) the media never questions him or his members which have lined the walls of Bush's cabinet about PNAC and how it influenced our foreign policy, which led us to attack Iraq.

Colbert immediately called him on it and Kristol was quite embarrassed talking about it.

Colbert: Speaking of thinking alike, you were a member, or are a member of the New Project for the American Century, correct?

Kristol: I am.

Colbert: Were or am, am?

Kristol: Were and am.

Colbert: How's that project coming?

Kristol: well. it's..(stammering)

Colbert: How's the New American Century, looks good to me?

Kristol: Ahh--I think...hehe yea--I'm speechless..

Colbert: Really?

Kristol: Yea...we've sort of...the Project for the New American Century is just a few people..

Colbert: Come on, it’s a terrific New American Century, right?

Kristol: Well I think we do OK.

Colbert: You Rummy Wolfowitz, Cheney, Pearle, Feith, all you guys right?

Kristol (responds timidly): Well, we fought back after 9/11..

The "herd", as it were, finds things like this very hard to believe, because they do not know people who act or believe what these neocons/zionists/whatever believe; it seems so foreign to them that people in OUR country have that kind of mindset.

AG, might I suggest you use the movie "Munich" as a way of making your claims more believable; it clearly shows Israeli agents and politicians acting in some very nefarious ways. Now, I don't necessarily believe that their actions weren't justified, but it becomes obvious what these people are capable of, and the methods in which they operate. In turn, it makes what you and others who know the truth are saying much more believable.
