    But a lot of the electronics come from Israel, they’re as big on defense industry as we are.

    I wonder why? When you are surrounded by countries that refuse to recognise that you exist, or even the right to exist. and want all of your people dead – where are you going to invest?

    Remember Israel invests in weapons to protect its people, Hamas invests its people to protect the weapons.

    It’s amazing. Most of the comments here are by people who know exactly where Mr Rall is talking about, while I, having read one of his diatribes against America, have absolutely no idea.


    The MENA is on fire, and the US is selling and sending weapons to many of the combatants. The US supports IS (formerly ISIS) in Syria, where it wants them to evict al-Assad, and is supporting those against IS in Iraq, where it wants all the members of IS to go to Syria where they belong. (In Arabic, IS call themselves DA for Dawla Aslamia.)


    In Egypt, the US supported Mubarak until it was clear he was out, then it supported Morsi, and now it supports Sisi with ‘money’, meaning chits that can only be redeemed with American companies, mostly weapons companies.


    And in the Ukraine, the US supports the Western Ukrainians who are having problems integrating with the Eastern Ukrainians, a problem that goes back to before 1920, so the US has to give the Western Ukrainians weapons so they can prevent the Eastern Ukrainians from shooting down missing Malasian airliners (the Eastern Ukrainians and the Russians keep lying and saying no one is sure who shot down the airliner, just because both sides say it was the other side).


    Mr Rall, in his diatribes, keeps accusing the US of neo-colonialism, invasions, and setting up puppet dictators all over the world, when we know the US has never invaded any other country or engaged in war. The US has only LIBERATED countries, and engaged in PEACE-keeping efforts, since the US is the Greatest Force for Good that has ever existed on this planet.

    Hey, what’s the point of BUILDING weapons, if you can’t use them? Or at least sell them to someone who will?

    Michael wme’s posts are a study on sarcasm. He vary rarely breaks character. He usually includes clickable links that give clues to that, though it seems he saw fit to leave ’em out this time.

    The peace agreement has apparently already been broked.

    We’re back to “a good guy with a gun” being the only answer to “a bad guy with a gun”.

    Let’s flashback to the “surge” in Iraq. That was another example of the idea that more guns will help create peace. It was reported, at the BEGINNING of the surge, that the US had provided over 90,000 weapons that could not be accounted for. But it was no big deal: time to arm the “good guys”. And let’s look at how peaceful Iraq has become as a result.

    When will they ever learn?

    Let us have the UN remove half the area in – insert random state – and you will see how “happy” the people there will be afterwards. Plus them expanding their area with settlements – they have been told to remove. Hamas aren´t angels, but Israel is in no way free of sin.

    Remember when the CIA was arming and training “those brave mujahideen”? Took a little while to come back and bite us in the rump, but when it did, it bit hard.

    Let’s not learn from the past, though. We don’t need to learn; we’re ’MURICA!

    Since the USA is Israel’s patron it has no place being at the table except behind and with Israel. We need someone who is neutral and the USA is anything but.

    I don’t read to much into his posts, but the links he often provides are usually worthwhile reading.

    Maybe if you clicked on the link you will see. Until then please remain blind.
