This is a question asked as part of an article on an almost unrelated subject of Australia seemingly being ready to break defensive ties with the U.S.
They say we get them into too much Shit.
Too many wars; they say.
The last time our defense forces had to fight off an invasion was in 1814.
Since then we have developed a way to assure it doesn’t happen again.
In the U.S. we never give other countries the chance to invade our shores.
As soon as there is a rumor that a ruler we don’t like might have bad breath we are at his door with a stealth toothbrush to kick him out of power and substitute people who like us.
Except that it is getting harder and harder to find those folks and lately the people we choose to leave as leaders don’t like us any better than the last guys.
So it goes. At least we still get to practice our favorite game of international diplomacy. You know.
Lay waste to their country until it is an unlivable bomb crater using the American Military; supplied and armed by the friendly folks at your local defense contractor. Then rebuild the whole thing using American Construction Contractors.
Well go on; where?
Ask the Palestinians how much help the US has been to them in their quest to stop the continuing genocide of their people at the hands of the rabid, murderous administration of Netanyahu.
In the great continuing tradition of the Israeli Government since they renewed their interest in the land after the admittedly horrific Holocaust that we hear so; so much about; Ben’s administration seems bent on talking as little as possible, making light of the sincere attempts to negotiate a peace saying, “You don’t negotiate with people who hate you. You just don’t“
So while he claims to be ready for sincere talks out of the one side of his mouth but ready only to slaughter innocents with the other.
It amazes me that after the death of so many of their own at the hands of the Germans; they are so eager to kill millions themselves.
After having so many of their own families starved to death in the Nazi concentration camps; they are in the process of doing the same thing to the Palestinian Arabs in Gaza.
When I was young, I bought the whole heroic tale of the Jews escape to Israel despite the resistance of the British and the Nazis on their tale. Leon Uris was my favorite writer. I was proud just to know of a people who pulled themselves up from the pit by their own effort and just actions, yadda-yadda.
Not that all Jews or even all Israelis are bad. are many who disagree with the crimes of their government and are willing to give up the hate but those are not the people running the Israeli show.
No; the people running the show are diametrically opposed to those peace loving Jews who want to live and get on with their closest neighbors.
