“I frankly think that crisis initiation is really tough, and it’s very hard for me to see how the United States … uh … president can get us to war with Iran.… The traditional way America gets to war is what would be best for U.S. interests.”
“if the Iranians aren’t going to compromise it would be best if someone else started the war … Iranian submarines periodically go down. Some day one of them may not come up…. We are in the game of using covert means against the Iranians. We could get nastier at that.”
A poster excoriating Jews or blacks in similar terms as “savages” would not have seen the light of day in New York City, another indication of the power of the Lobby and its friends to control the debate about the Middle East and game the system.
No more money,
.no more political support,
.no more tolerance of spying, and
.no more having to listen to demands for red lines to go to war.
.No more favorable press when the demented Benjamin Netanyahu holds up a cartoon at the U.N.
exists to serve the American people,
begin to remember that fact.
