Eight years into the war on terror, I mean contingency overseas operation, how are we and our allies doing? Haaretz reported:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the global threat of terror was greater than ever and vowed that Israel would never cease to defend itself.
"We have no choice but to fight terror until it is obliterated and to defend our lives," he told bereaved families gathered for the official state ceremony on the Mount Herzl military ceremony in Jerusalem.
Not well, it appears. The greed and violence boys want another war. Israel let the Arab League Peace Plan linger on a dusty shelf since 2002. My guess? It will languish longer. Israel attacked Lebanon, its democratic neighbor to the north in 2006. In late 2008/early 2009 it pummeled Gaza. Both lasted roughly a month.
Senator Obama supported Israel's razing of Lebanon and the President elect explicitly supported the Gaza siege, via Hillary Clinton, General James L. Jones and Mayor Bloomberg. What happens in Israel doesn't always stay in Israel! What manipulations are occurring today? Obama's neocon visits the Persian Gulf. I voted against the guy who said, "There will be more wars, my friend."
