Boy oh boy, are they mad at each other!

There are only flimsy retrospectives on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War because there is other so much more compelling news--although they are reporting on the Sunni-Shia conflict & the fact that Iraqi Muslims turned against Christians after the occupation. The media wants us to really understand that Iraqis can’t get along without US military presence.

Leading off the more important news is the continuing drama of KKKKaty’s baby bump; that Selena Gomez made Justin Bieber cry; & that Tiger Woods found someone crazy enough to date him. And on the political front, the first volley of the 2016 election has been fired by Clinton claiming she favors gay marriage. Brace yourself for the prolonged living hell of the campaign & the next traveling clown caravan of candidates--which provide infinitely more agony than comic relief.

Obama has arrived in Israel still playing out that phony-assed drama of a strained relationship with Netanyahu--while he’s handing over our Medicare & Social Security checks for the next several years. Israel will have bombs & missile systems; we will eat dog food.

They report without an ounce of sarcasm that Obama will give “gentle encouragement” to Netanyahu to “be more sensitive to the new realities of the region & not take actions that provoke or irritate the very people with whom they desire better ties.” When you translate, that means the US is scared to death of those Arab uprisings surrounding Israel & they wish Israel would show more restraint in carpet bombing Gaza--not because it’s genocide but because it will increase the fury of the Arab peoples & force their rulers to stop colluding with Israel.

Obama will continue on to meet with Abbas, who wants to talk to Obama about Palestinian prisoners, including children & hunger strikers. But Obama is going there to scold Abbas about that UN recognition. Many Palestinian groups have called for protests against Obama who is bankrolling the expropriation of their lands, the arsenal used against them, & the incarceration of their activists with US tax dollars & our Social Security funds.

Those who oppose Israeli terror & ethnic cleansing can demand “No US aid to Israel” & boycott all Israeli goods (barcode beginning 729).
