U.S. Mideast Policy: Obama Knows Best?
But it is in their interest because they want to try to dominate the Arab world, wipe out Israel, control the Palestinian issue, and continue to be a dictatorship because that gives the elites all the power and money they want.
--The U.S. government, in fact President Barack Obama himself, told the Saudi king that what he is supposed to want most is an Israel-Palestinian peace agreement.
But the Saudis know it is in their interest to put the priority on stopping Iran.
--The U.S. government tells Israel that it is in its interest to give up a huge amount to get a Palestinian state.
But Israelis know it isn't in their interest to make countless concessions to create an entity that will probably be backing terrorist attacks against them within a month of achieving independence.
--The U.S. government tells the Palestinian Authority that its interest is to get an independent state as fast as possible by making peace with Israel.
But the Palestinian Authority defines its interest as proving its militant credentials by not making any compromise peace with Israel. Its short-term goal is to get an independent state while giving up nothing (unilateral independence); the long-term objective is to continue the struggle for decades in order to try to destroy Israel.
--The U.S. government tells Iran that it is in its interests not to get nuclear weapons.
The Iranian regime laughs. It doesn’t want to be America’s friend. Up until now, Iran has succeeded in its aggressions. While sanctions are a burden, the regime can put up with pressure when the prize is so great: a bid for hegemony in the Middle East and in the Muslim world.
If I might be so bold, let me suggest a conclusion. And yes the all capital format represents my yelling this as loud as possible:
WHEN IS THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AND ALL THOSE “EXPERTS” WHO CONTINUE TO SAY THIS KIND OF NONSENSE GOING TO WATCH WHAT MIDDLE EAST RULERS ARE DOING AND LISTEN TO WHAT THEY ARE ACTUALLY SAYING?
