Biased USA a Middle East umpire?

Extracts from an al Jazeera report titled Cheney: US will not pressure Israel:

Dick Cheney, the US vice president, has said that Washington will not pressure Israel to take steps that will threaten its security and expressed hope for a new beginning for the Palestinian people in their own state.

Cheney, who is on a 10-day trip to the Middle East, arrived in Jerusalem on Saturday after spending two days in Saudi Arabia.

"America's commitment to Israel's security is enduring and unshakable, as is our commitment to Israel's right to defend itself always against terrorism, rocket attacks and other forces dedicated to Israel's destruction,'' Cheney told reporters shortly after arriving in Jerusalem.

I believe him.

Then:

In Jerusalem on Saturday, Cheney reaffirmed Washington's commitment to the establishment of a Palestinian state.

He assured Palestinian leaders that "they, too, can be certain of America's goodwill'' as it tries to help Israelis and Palestinians reach an accord.

"We want to see a resolution to the conflict, an end to the terrorism that has caused so much grief to Israelis, and a new beginning for the Palestinian people," Cheney said.

I don’t believe him.

BTW, just in case you aren't aware, Dick Cheney was on the Board of Advisors for
JINSA which stands for the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs.

Two days after 9/11, without any proof whatsoever of Saddam Hussein’s involvement in the attacks on Twin Towers,
JINSA Propose(d) Iraq War on 9/13. The rest is history (inclusive of the American brief sojourn in Afghanistan).

Read my post
Lies & power behind US invasion of Iraq where I wrote (extracts):

The Nation, the oldest continuously published weekly political magazine in the US, alleged that JINSA are underwritten by far-right American Zionists who believed strongly that 'regime change' by any means necessary in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority is an urgent imperative.

* all underlining are mine

Anyone who dissents -- be it Colin Powell's State Department, the CIA or career military officers -- is committing heresy against articles of faith that effectively hold there is no difference between US and Israeli national security interests, and that the only way to assure continued safety and prosperity for both countries is through hegemony in the Middle East.

According to Karen DeYoung's 2006 biography of Colin Powell, Powell stated that "JINSA had influenced Vice President Richard Cheney and others in the Bush administration to rid Israel of Palestine's supporters and protect Israel's security by neutralizing Iraq, Iran, Syria, Lebanon and Libya by invading and changing those regimes to democracies."

… into democracies like Egypt and Saudi Arabia?

Additionally, political-military analysts said the recent and rather abrupt resignation of Admiral William Fallon, the top US commander in the Middle East, has been an indication that President Bush is insistent on
launching an attack against Iran.

The Esquire magazine revealed that the Admiral quitted after he failed to persuade President Bush to avoid war with Tehran.

Bush madness has been and will be all for Israel, of course. What a goy-ish idiot!

  1. Its not so much "What is good for Israel is good for the US". Its more like "What Israel thinks is right, the US will support it."
    Its a very common attitude among Americans of whatever political leanings.
    Even a future President Barack Obama will find his political maneuvering room with regard to Israel strictly limited.

  2. your anti-Israel views have blinded you to the theocratic ambitions of the Iranian regime to be a nuclear power and threaten the western world and the middle east. Hard to believe smart people like you cannot see things clearly. Makes me wonder how much of the history of the middle east have you read, apart from the mostly PC anti-Israel ones?

  5. The only obvious answer to the Israel-Palestine debacle is to IMPOSE a solution on both parties. neither Israel nor Palestians are strong enough to accept the reality that Jerusalem (except for one outlying suburb)will remain with the Jewish State and that Isreael must withdraw from the occupied territories for the Palestinians to live in peace. Only the US (acting thru the UN) is strong enough to impose such a soluction. But that will only happen when the US realises that it is in its long term interest to do so. Obviously so far, it has not reach that conclusion. Having said that the Israelis must learn from the Palestians who lost large territory to Israel because they not brave enough to accept the original partition. Then they lost the lot. The israelis will be the long term losers if they do not accept that reality now.
