“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

The Neocon’s Choice: Hillary Clinton

Want Endless War? Love the U.S. Empire? Well, Hillary Clinton’s Your Choice

Posted on Feb 1, 2016

Hillary Clinton likes to extol her foreign policy credentials, particularly her experience as secretary of state. She attaches herself to Barack Obama’s coattails, pledging to continue his policies. But she is even more hawkish than the president.

Like Obama, Clinton touts American exceptionalism, the notion that the United States is better than any other country. In his State of the Union addresses, Obama has proclaimed America “exceptional” and said the U.S. must “lead the world.” Clinton wrote in her book “Hard Choices” that “America remains the ‘indispensable nation.’ ”

It is this view that animates U.S. invasions, interventions, bombings and occupations of other countries. Under the pretense of protecting our national interest, the United States maintains some 800 military bases in other countries, costing taxpayers tens of billions of dollars annually. Often referred to as “enduring bases,” they enable us to mount attacks whenever and wherever our leaders see fit, whether with drones or manned aircraft.

Obama, who continues to prosecute the war in Afghanistan 15 years after it began, is poised to send ground troops back to Iraq and begin bombing Libya. His aggressive pursuit of regime change in Syria was met with pushback by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to Seymour Hersh.

The president has bombed some seven countries with drones. But besides moving toward normalization of relations with Cuba, his signature foreign policy achievement is brokering the agreement to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

Although Clinton supports the nuclear deal, she talks tough about Iran. In September 2015, she provocatively declared, “I don’t believe Iran is our partner in this agreement. Iran is the subject of the agreement,” and added, “I will confront them across the board.” She said, “I will not hesitate to take military action if Iran attempts to obtain a nuclear weapon.”

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Clinton promised to “totally obliterate” Iran if it attacked Israel. Clinton was, in effect, pledging to commit genocide against the Iranian people.

In an August 2014 Atlantic interview with Jeffrey Goldberg, Clinton maintained, “There is no such thing as a right to enrich.” Apparently, she has not read the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which gives countries like Iran the right to enrich uranium for peaceful purposes. Article IV of the treaty says, “Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with Articles I and II of this Treaty.”

One country that does possess nuclear weapons is Israel—which refuses to ratify the NPT. Clinton has consistently and uncritically supported the policies of the Israeli government. In the Atlantic interview, she placed the blame for Israel’s 2014 massacre in Gaza squarely with the Palestinians.

From July 8 to Aug. 27, 2014, Israel killed over 2,100 Palestinians—including more than 400 children—80 percent of them civilians. Sixty-six Israeli soldiers and seven Israeli civilians were killed.

When Goldberg asked Clinton whom she held responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Palestinian children, she demurred, saying, “[I]t’s impossible to know what happens in the fog of war.” She blamed only the Palestinians, saying, “There’s no doubt in my mind that Hamas initiated this conflict.” Claiming “Israel has a right to defend itself,” she said, “I think Israel did what it had to do to respond to the rockets.”
But Israel did not act in self-defense. In the first 10 days of June 2014, Israeli forces abducted 17 Palestinian teenage boys in the occupied West Bank. On June 12, three Israeli teenagers were abducted in the southern West Bank; Israel accused Hamas. After those three were found dead, a group of Israelis tortured and killed a Palestinian teenager in Jerusalem. On July 7, Israel launched a large military operation in the Gaza Strip, dubbed Operation Protective Edge. The Israel Defense Forces devastated Gaza. For 51 days, Israel bombarded Gaza with more than 6,000 airstrikes.

The United Nations Human Rights Council subsequently convened an independent, international commission of inquiry, which concluded that Israel, and to a lesser extent Palestinian armed groups, had likely committed violations of international humanitarian and human rights law, some constituting war crimes. “The scale of the devastation was unprecedented” in Gaza, according to the commission.
Yet Clinton was puzzled by what she calls “this enormous international reaction against Israel,” adding, “This reaction is uncalled for and unfair.” 

She attributed the “enormous international reaction” to “a number of factors” but only mentioned anti-Semitism, never citing Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian lands or its periodic massacres in Gaza.
Indeed, just last month, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the Security Council it was an “indisputable truth” that “Palestinian frustration is growing under the weight of a half century of occupation and the paralysis of the peace process.” He noted that it was “human nature to react to occupation, which serves as a potent incubator of hate and extremism.”

Clinton didn’t ponder why so many people around the world are participating in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against the Israeli occupation. Representatives of Palestinian civil society launched BDS in 2005, calling upon “international civil society organizations and people of conscience all over the world to impose broad boycotts and implement divestment initiatives against Israel.”

In her November 2015 article titled “How I Would Reaffirm Unbreakable Bond With Israel—and Benjamin Netanyahu,” published in the Jewish newspaper Forward, Clinton vowed to continue to oppose BDS. “As secretary of state, I requested more assistance for Israel every year,” she boasted, adding that she opposed “the biased Goldstone report,” explained below.

After Israel’s 2008-2009 Operation Cast Lead, in which nearly 1,400 Palestinians (82 percent of whom were civilians) and 13 Israelis were killed, a U.N. Human Rights Council report by a commission headed by Justice Richard Goldstone concluded that “Disproportionate destruction and violence against civilians were part of a deliberate policy [by Israel].”

Israel responded to the report with threats and harassment against Goldstone, leading him to backtrack on one of the findings in the report that bears his name, namely, that Israel deliberately targeted civilians. But the other members of the commission stood fast on all of the report’s conclusions.

Clinton’s vote in favor of President George W. Bush’s illegal 2003 invasion of Iraq cost her the 2008 election. It also cost more than 4,500 Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis their lives.
Yet Clinton cynically told corporate executives at a 2011 State Department roundtable on investment opportunities in Iraq, “It’s time for the United States to start thinking of Iraq as a business opportunity.”

The same year, Clinton led the campaign for forcible regime change in Libya, despite opposition by the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Responding to the gruesome sodomizing of President Moammar Gadhafi with a bayonet, Clinton laughed and said, “We came, we saw, he died.”

Both the Iraq War and regime change in Libya paved the way for the rise of Islamic State and dangerous conflict in the Middle East. Obama is about to escalate his military involvement in Libya. Joseph Dunford,  chairman of the Joint Chiefs, said, “The president has made clear that we have the authority to use military force.” The New York Times reports that the expanded campaign is “expected to include airstrikes and raids by elite American troops.”

The Obama administration is reportedly changing the rules of engagement to allow more civilian casualties in the “war” against Islamic State. A senior military official told The Daily Beast, “Now I think you’ll see a little more willingness to tolerate civilian casualties in the interest of making progress.” But the Geneva Conventions prohibit the disproportionate killing of civilians.

Clinton has promised to escalate the wars in Syria and Iraq, including a no-fly zone in Syria. Since Islamic State doesn’t have an air force, her no-fly zone would be likely to capture Russian planes flying over Syria.
Talking tough on ABC’s “This Week,” Clinton declared, “We have to fight in the air, fight on the ground and fight them on the Internet.” She said nothing about diplomacy or an arms embargo to stop sending weapons that end up in the hands of Islamic State. 

Although the corporate media fans the flames of fear about Islamic State, only 38 people in the United States have died in terror-related incidents since 9/11, according to The “war on terror” has cost us more than $1.5 trillion, in addition to U.S. lives and those of untold numbers in other countries.

Nevertheless, there is little doubt that a President Hillary Clinton would continue our “perpetual war.” She would do everything in her power to ensure the robust survival of the American empire.

    Very first 'entrance' polls show YUGE turnout.

    This is said to be good for The Donald and The Bern.

    Not good for the Neocon Hillary.

  2. Fox: GOP caucus sites reporting long long lines, sites running out of ballots and registration forms.

    This is YUGE.

    The Bern is winning around 90% of the youth (yoot) vote, Quirk's finger clicking folk.

  3. RealClearPolitics is reporting that with 17% counted Gilmore has 2 votes, or, 0.00 %.

    Cruz is slightly ahead right now by 590 votes over The Donald.

    Ben Carson is holding on to his 10%.

  4. From July 8 to Aug. 27, 2014, Israel killed over 2,100 Palestinians—including more than 400 children—80 percent of them civilians.


    1. but the GOOD news?

      360,000 syrians, all civilians, including over 12,000 palestinians, were killed by Assad, hezbollah and Iran...

      Just fills you with pride..

      Not one of those "civilians" shot rockets at anyone...

  5. Enjoy your nonsense.

    Hamas is getting ready to start another war.

    Many of your friends will die, again.

    Instead of building a nation? The palestinians can't stop themselves from wanting to murder Jews...

    Too bad for your friends, these Jews fight back.

    You remember Deuce, you blame the Jews of Europe for not fighting the nazis?

    Like it or not?

    Israel will fight and kill those who seek their destruction, no matter HOW MANY HUMAN SHIELDS Hamas uses.

  6. Maybe it's time for the Palestinians to immigrate to Europe, after all if they are in such danger living next to Israel?

    Join their millions of cousins that are fleeing Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Morocco, Libya and such.

    Yeah, the Palestinians need to flee and flee fast as Hamas is about to launch another war, as is Hezbollah...

    Europe is the place to be...

    Fine dining, lots of gals to gang rape...

    Great cities to live in for free...

    Europe is calling the Palestinians.. Come and live in a Jew free zone...

  7. The difference is that Europe was the rightful and legal home of the Jews. They had a right and a duty to defend their families and lives and property in Europe. It was a disastrous decision and calamity for them and civilized society that they did not stand firmly, forcefully and righteously against the fascists and Nazi thugs at the early onset of violence against the Jews. Had they done so, they would have engendered respect and alliance from others opposed to fascism.

    The poles have shifted. Israel has no such righteous claims. Israeli, transplanted European and Russian Jews are the oppressors. The Palestinians are the European ghetto Jews.

    1. You have everything just backwards, as usual.

      And I almost hope you get the chance to defend yourself without weapons someday.

      But why argue with you.

      The guy that holds that Lincoln was a psychopathic mass murderer.

      The election is far more interesting.

      Rubio doing better than expected, The Donald doing worse than expected...

    2. As usual, you are ignorant of any facts.

      Germany did not enact any gun control acts until 1928.

      The SA was founded in Munich by Hitler in 1921. The SA outfitted in brown uniforms (Brown Shirts) after the fashion of Mussolini’s Fascist Blackshirts in Italy, marched in Nazi rallies, and physically assaulted political opponents and Jews.

      Hitler’s Munich Putsch failed in 1923 and the SA was not reorganized until 1925.

      The besieged German Jews had seven years to legally acquire all the weapons that they needed to defend themselves. They didn’t.

    3. Lincoln holds the record for getting Americans killed. 700,000. No one else comes close.

    4. The difference is that Europe was the rightful and legal home of the Jews.

      Sorry Deuce, Jews the historic people of Jerusalem, Hebron, Bethlehem and the Galilee have been driven from their legal and rightful homes. Then after being dispersed, they were expelled by the arabs of the middle east, invaders themselves and driven to live in Israel. Of course, most of the Jews of Europe were murdered. But the Jews of the arab occupied middle east have reestablished themselves in their historic homeland.

      Face it.

      Jews have a right to live in Jerusalem, even if there are arab thieves that have lived there for a bit of time.

      Remember the Jews of Hebron? The ones in 1922 murdered and the rest driven from their homes by the arabs?

      Sorry, Deuce, the arabs are invaders. They are not historic to the lands.

  8. Cruz ahead of Trump by 3%, Trump ahead of Rubio by 3%.

    Rubio is doing himself well tonight.

    If this holds I will continue my political prediction history of always being wrong.

  9. Don’t blame the Palestinians fighting for their homes and rights against the Zionist oppressors.

    1. Good luck with that tripe.

      The Fakistinians are a fraud.

      They can't even say the letter P.... There is none in Arabic.

      They are nothing but arabs.

      They seek genocide of the Jews. And they keep losing..

      and will continue to lose...

      the question is, how many will die before they get an ounce of sanity?

      Of course. never.

  10. The Nazis used rocks and stones to smash Jewish property in Germany. The Israelis use bulldozers and howitzers against the Palestinians.

    1. The Nazis used gas to exterminate the Jews.

      The 'Palestinians' are knifing the Jews in the streets..

      The 'Palestinians' call for pushing the Jews into the sea....

      We all know these things....

      But the election is new news...

      I'm surprised. I thought The Donald was going to win. Doesn't look so now...

  11. The Donald should have gone to that last debate.

  12. The Jewish community of Iowa holds Israel as an important voting component but it is not the absolute, President of the Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines and AIPAC chair in Iowa, David Adelman told The Jerusalem Post on caucus day on Monday. “I would say that the Jewish community in Des Moines is representative of a cross section of the Jewish community nationally,” he explained.


    However, he said, Jewish life is thriving in the city today, as more first-generation Iowans choose to live in the Hawkeye State to enjoy a better quality of life. “Now its a choice to be here and its not just adults who’s parents are here but a cross section of people all over the country,” he explained.

    The Jewish Federation of greater Des Moines recently celebreated its 100 year anniversary this past August.

    1. I wonder how many Jews live in Iowa.

      I wonder if they own the Des Moines Register newspaper.....

    2. .

      Naw, the are settlers, the boy with his stick and hoop, the girl with her faceless doll, and paw with his foot stomping.


    3. You never could distinguish Iowa from Idaho from Indiana.

      What the hell do you know?

      4 people ?

      That's plenty to own the Des Moines Register, and control the state's Press.

      The Jews control our nation's Press everywhere.

      We were told so right here.

  13. Rubio is close to overtaking The Donald, only back by 1% now.

    Good Grief.

    The night is turning into a disaster for The Donald.

    How o how will his ego take this beating ?

    1. Megyn Kelly on Fox is crowing....


      Fox has called it for Cruz.

      All those polls didn't mean shit.

      The Huck has dropped out, campaign suspended.....

  14. With 89% reporting, Gilmore is making a late surge.

    He now has 11 votes, up from 2.

    (Gilmore is Jack Hawkins' guy)

    Jeb! is right in there at 3% but may not get a delegate as I heard you need 3.3% to get a delegate.

    That cool $100 million didn't do Jeb! squat.

    He's a decent guy, but we're a decent country and don't seem to want a least the average Republicans don't.....

  15. 89% reporting:

    The Criminal and The Commie are basically dead even -

    Clinton 49.8
    Sanders 49.6

  16. Deuce says: The poles have shifted. Israel has no such righteous claims. Israeli, transplanted European and Russian Jews are the oppressors. The Palestinians are the European ghetto Jews.

    Sorry Deuce, even the arab world now understand what shit heads the paelstinians are.... that's why assad whacked 10k of them...

    Not one arab country trusts them, they are hated by their own peeps.

    Maybe it's because they are a fraudulent people sucking on the tit of arab charity...

    1. Do you believe the Jews were less hated in pre WWII Europe?

      Does the level of hatred focused on a people have a threshold that justifies them being denied basic human rights, their property or their lives?

      Does your metaphor of “sucking on a tit” differ so radically from “a parasite sucking on the blood of a host”?

      Does that justify 10,000 of them being killed or a million forced into ghettos?

  17. I live how Deuce ignores the 850,000 Jews that are from the middle east, that were driven from their homes by the arabs. from 1922- 1967

    How is it deuce you cannot bring yourself to understand the crimes of the arabs for ethnic cleansing and property theft?

    1. Personally Deuce's attitudes are telling, I hope the arabs that are migrating to Europe are treated like the arabs treated the druze, berbers, coptics, jews and others..

      They deserve it.

  18. Deuce: The besieged German Jews had seven years to legally acquire all the weapons that they needed to defend themselves. They didn’t.

    So he blames the Jews for the holocaust..


    1. I made no such claim. I believe a man has a duty to protect his family and kin and makes a mistake to expect that others do it for them and then blames them for not doing what should have been done by himself. You as a Jew have repeatedly claimed that Jews learned their lesson and have taken a more assertive roll against their enemies. Most lessons come from mistakes or misjudgments. I agree with your assessment.

    2. Then don't complain when we shoot to kill those of your friends trying to murder us..

  19. This comment has been removed by the author.

  20. Deuce you get pissed when we call you an anti-Semite?

    Cant you be honest?

    You hate Israel and the Jews.

    That's fine.. It's your right to be a Jew hater..

    Of course? It's our right to call you a Jew hater...

    But I personally have taken your advise, when your pals come to murder me or mine? i will double tap their sorry asses...


    1. But you are not in Israel, or so you continually claim, "O"rdure.

    2. I am in Ohio.

      You and your terrorists pals are world wide.

  21. .

    Cruz ran a clever campaign.


    1. Spent an entire year working to garner a two delegate advantage over Trump.

      Cruz will join Huckabee and Santorum in Iowa's long list of losers.

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    3. .

      My message was simple and pithy, rat. I didn't expect you recognize the truths that it held.



    Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said Monday that Su-35 fighters have been deployed to Hemeimeem air base in Syria. The Su-35 is Russia’s most advanced fighter that is fielded in significant numbers. NATO designates the aircraft as the SU-35S Flanker-E.

    “Starting from last week, super-maneuverable Su-35S fighter jets started performing combat missions at Khmeimim airbase,” Maj. Gen. Konashenkov told the Russian state news agency, TASS.

    Overall, U.S. defense officials are quite impressed with this latest Flanker variant. “It’s a great airplane and very dangerous, especially if they make a lot of them,” one senior U.S. military official with extensive experience on fifth-generation fighters told me some time ago. “I think even an AESA [active electronically scanned array-radar equipped F-15C] Eagle and [Boeing F/A-18E/F] Super Hornet would both have their hands full,” reported National Interest.

    In addition to providing hi-tech protection for its ground attack aircraft in theater, the Syrian conflict will allow Moscow to test the new weapon system in combat conditions. Currently at least four of the new aircraft are in theater and will also allow Moscow to market the system to China and other militaries as a combat proven weapon system.

    The deployment also sends a message to Turkey that, in combination with the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system, Russia can defend its aircraft anywhere in theater with weapon systems equal to or even more capable than NATO can field.

  23. Karl Rove made a big fool out of himself on Fox right before the voting began by saying a big turnout would favor Trump.

    There was, and it didn't.

    Trump has just said, feigning humility, that he was honored to have finished second.

    TRUMP: 'Honored' With Second-Place Finish...Drudge

    Well, he was lucky to finish second. Rubio missed it by a hair.'s Casino Time.

    Cheers !

  24. What happened to your sign in, Robert "Draft Dodger" Peterson.

    You had it, then it was gone ... illustrative of your mental processes, aye.

    Is it alcohol that limits your cognitive abilities, or is it the crystal meth?

    1. ‹^› ‹(•¿•)› ‹^›Tue Feb 02, 04:22:00 AM EST

      You are stalking again, Dead Beat Dad.

      At the last count I saw, your guy had 11 (eleven) votes in all of Iowa.

  25. .

    Good to see Sanders did well against Clinton. He needs to do well in the liberal northeast.

    Once the primaries move south, he'll have a tougher time. Hillary should do better. They are much more credulous there.


    1. .

      I went RCP to see how Sanders was doing against Clinton in New Hampshire. The polls indicate he is ahead. The interactive graph on the same page showed that he started pulling away from her on January 6 so I googled what was happening with her on that date. While there was a lot there, I couldn't find any one thing that moved the needle towards Sanders.

      There was much talk about e-mails, Benghazi, FBI probes and such; but no one in the Democratic base cares about any of that. Other articles reported

      - She couldn't tell Chris Matthews the difference between a Socialist and a Democrat.
      - After calling Trump a sexist and stating that every alleged rape victim deserved to be believed, when Trump in turn called her an 'enabler' for excusing Bill's indiscretions, she folded her tents and meekly replied that she was non longer going to reply to 'personal attacks'.
      - The progressives in the party were pushing to have Debbie Wasserman Shultz resign because of what they saw as her tipping the process for Clinton.
      - She made a fool of herself in Las Vegas in January when, pointing to snow outside, she said it proved climate change was real thus proving only that she can't differentiate between weather and climate change.
      - There was also the ill-advised use of Chelsea on the campaign which was widely ridiculed.

      There were others, the NK nuclear test, the Vanity Fair hit piece on Huma, but the one I found interesting was the fact that she was completely baffled by a question from the audience on the Netflix program, 'Making of a Murderer'. I say that only because of Bernie's popularity with young people and Hillary's apparent unfamiliarity with that group.

      Of course, most of these things won't hurt her in most of the primaries but they are likely to surface in the presidential race.


    2. .

      FOX is reporting that Clinton won Iowa by 3 delegates.


    3. .

      Sorry, FOX hasn't declared a winner. They are now saying the difference as of now is 2 delegates, 694 to 692 Clinton


    4. Dem Party has informed campaigns that caucus results from 90 precincts are missing...
      Hillary wins 6 Iowa precincts by coin tosses...
      Sanders rally chant: 'She's a liar!'........Drudge


      90 precincts 'missing'....hehehehehe

      Give me a fucking break.

      90 precincts went 'missing' in tiny Iowa....


      I read somewhere that Hillary was importing caucus goers from out of state too.....

  26. I asked at the bottom of the previous thread, "should we quit bombing ISIS and come home?"

    1. You and rathole are the self proclaimed counter insurgency experts, Rufus. So you tell us.

      You both said we'd have ISIS gone from Iraq by last summer, and here we are months and months later.

      What does your Criminal Queen Hillary say we ought to do ?

    2. What the West should do above all things is stop mooselim immigration to the West.

  27. Will Gilmore drop out now ?

    This is what all the commentariate are wondering this morning.

    And where will his voters go ?

    The needle quivers.

    World history hangs in the balance.

  28. Hillary 'won' six out of six coin tosses.

    1 out of 64 chance of that happening.

    Ben Carson is accusing the Cruz campaign of telling caucus goers that he had dropped out.

    Has tweets from the Cruz campaign to back him up too.

    1. Hillary wins 6 precincts -- by coin tosses...
      Probability: 1 in 64...
      Sanders wants raw count released...
      Rally chant: 'She's a liar!'...DRUDGE

      DIRTY: Carson Accuses Cruz Camp of Foul Play; Told Voters Carson Was Dropping Out...DRUDGE

      Meanwhile Cruz, whom I don't like at all, no, not at all, attributes his victory to 'God' --


  29. Deuce ☂Mon Feb 01, 11:35:00 PM EST
    Do you believe the Jews were less hated in pre WWII Europe?

    No, I think that the Christian Church had spread hatred for a 1000 years.

    Deuce: Does the level of hatred focused on a people have a threshold that justifies them being denied basic human rights, their property or their lives?

    Of course not, but at last look the Israelis do not treat the population of arabs in any way the same. Only those that are attacking them.

    Maybe if Israel treated the Palestinians as the Europeans treated the Jews (time and time again) there would be no issue as the palestinians would have been totally killed or driven off many times over... Maybe if the Jews of Israel treated the arabs the way the arabs treated the Jews? There would be an arab free Israel, but Israel does NOT treat the arabs the way the arabs treat the Jews.

    Deuce: Does your metaphor of “sucking on a tit” differ so radically from “a parasite sucking on the blood of a host”?

    Sure does, sucking on a tit is not killing the host... Maybe you are not familiar with breast feeding? At last look it never killed the mother...

    Deuce: Does that justify 10,000 of them being killed or a million forced into ghettos?

    Assad and your pals the iranians are killing tens of thousands of them. Not Israel. And it's specious to say that gaza is a "ghetto" it is not in any way other it being segregated a ghetto.

    Try learning about what the Germans did in the "ghettos" at last check the population of Gaza is exploding billions of dollars are being pumped in, thousands of trucks of food and supplies are being provided, humanitarian aid is pumped at an alarming rate....

    But alas in the real world? the Germans never helped the Jews to medical care, nor food, nor trying to allow them self government.

    The palestinians have chosen war and it's consequences. Maybe they will tire of trying to murder Jews in Israel and across the globe?

    I doubt it..

    Just last week, in America, another Palestinian was arrested for plotting to murder Jews in here.

    From Bobby Kennedy forward the palestnians have embraced murder as their way.

    1. The 'Palestinians' don't deserve a state.

      Arafat and the PLO got kicked out of four or five Arab nations.

      Nobody seemed to want them around.

      No one with any sense would.

      You might be walking down the street and all of a sudden find yourself with a machete in your guts.

  30. Hey Jack, your friend got busted.... Did you?

    The US Drug Enforcement Agency announced Tuesday that American and European law enforcement agencies have uncovered an international money laundering and drug trafficking operation run by Hizballah that is being used to fund the terrorist organization's operations in Syria. It said senior leaders of the Hizballah operation in Europe were arrested last week.
    The DEA said its "Project Cassandra" is aimed at breaking up Hizballah's network for shipping cocaine to Europe and the US. The network was founded by the late arch-terrorist Imad Mughniyeh and is currently run by Abdallah Safieddine and Adham Tabaja, in cooperation with South American drug cartels. Law enforcement authorities in seven countries are involved in the ongoing investigation that started in 2015, according to the DEA.
    The agency added that the network's couriers collect and transport drug proceeds from Europe to the Middle East, with much of the millions of euros in proceeds transiting through Lebanon. The proceeds are then paid to drug traffickers in Colombia.
    The Hizballah schemes "provide a revenue and weapons stream for an international terrorist organization responsible for devastating terror attacks around the world,” DEA Acting Deputy Administrator Jack Riley said. "DEA and our partners will continue to dismantle networks who exploit the nexus between drugs and terror using all available law enforcement mechanisms.”

    1. Hey Jack, ask your "mole" that in the AZ FBI if they are on to you yet!!!
