Iran And Nuclear Weapons

Senator John McCain is one tough dude and he is willing to draw his pistol at any moment in defense of the American way of life. He agrees with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that any and all discussion must be ended with Iran. Bibi and John insist no negotiations and the end result will be????

How about this end result after Iranian negotiations are ended:

1. Russian President Vladimir Putin arrives in Tehran.

2. President Putin offers to assist Iranians in securing atomic development that leads to atomic weapons.

3. President Putin and China agree to end sanctions against Iran.

4. Oh, Putin was just in Egypt where he offered to build them a nuclear plant.

The Bibi — John end result is this:

1. Israel bombs Iranian nuclear facilities.

2. Thousands of missiles wind up in Israel

3. Israel bombs Moscow to show the Russians no one messes with Israel!

John and Bibi have NO logical plan other than the end of the world!

Obama Modern Anarchist

The expression, “Anarchist” in American history was usually applied to those who believed the capitalist system was evil and desired to create a society in which there was no central government, and people were left to function at without worrying about laws. They were able to inhabit a paradise in which government had disappeared and rule of “the people” was now established. Anarchists endeavored to achieve their goals by use of force which meant blowing up leaders of government. Congressman John Boehner never bothers his mind with reading history since history is written by “intellectuals.” John Boehner wants a law passed that would allow construction of the Keystone pipe line from Canada. He is rather upset at President Obama–so what else is new.

According to Boehner, the Obama opposition to the pipe line derives from bad people. “instead of listening to the people, the president is standing with a bunch of left fringe extremists and anarchists.” At the moment, oil prices are dropping because there is a surplus of oil in the world. So, the Republican solution to this problem is to get MORE oil!

1. Republicans claim Barack Obama wants more government.

2. John Boehner claims Barack Obama wants to end government.

Only in Republican AmericaQ!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if one can gaze too far?

Ministers and rabbis work hard to come across as knowing something about the world.

In modern America there is no last word.

we usually gaze at the person who sits next to us in a coffee shop.

Always remember there is a tomorrow, if not, you are dead.

Mah Jong is a game I know exists, that is all I know about it.

I so miss running against the wind.

Some enjoy the gift of ignorance.

Silence should be the norm during political campaigns.

Bibi Angers Democrats

Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy from Vermont has traditionally been a strong supporter of Israel and one who deeply seeks peace in the world. It requires real stupidly on the part of any Israel political leader to get Leahy angry about Israel. Well, Israel Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has accomplished his mission to anger many American political leaders who ordinarily side with Israel. Following is Leahy’s comments about the proposed Netanyahu speech to Congress. “The unfortunate way that House leaders have unilaterally arranged this, and then heavily politicized it, has demolished the potential constructive value of this Joint Meeting. They have organized a tawdry and high handed stunt that has embarrassed not only Israel, but Congress itself. It has long been an unwritten rule and practice through the decades that when it comes to American foreign policy, we speak and act thoughtfully with one voice, when we can, and with the national interests of the United States as our uppermost consideration.”

As an American Jew the national interest of the United States of America supersedes the national interests of any other nation. I took an oath to defend the American Constitution when entering the US Army, not the constitution of Israel. I believe in defending the national interests of the United States I also aid the survival of Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu is NOT my leader. Hew is an incompetent, stupid, arrogant man whose policies damage the national interest of Israel!

Why Waste Time Watching Newscasters?

Confession. I very rarely watch any newscasters on any television program for the simple reason they lack a grasp of foreign policy and simply mouth words written on cards. I do not respect any political commentator on any program. I read newspapers, I read magazines, I even read BOOKS! But, why spend my precious time listening to ignorant men and women pontificate about something they THINK they know? So, the latest great debate about Brian Williams is simply another boring story. Bill O’Reilly came to the defense of his television colleague. “Every public person is this country is a target . These people delight in seeing famous people being taken apart.” Oh well, did Brain ride in a helicopter that had missiles coming close to it?

There is one thing that is clear, those who pretend to be involved in war, make certain they remain far from the scene of actually getting killed. Of course in Syria, many reporters have died, but rarely are these brave people working for major television networks. I doubt if Brian is as brave as those working for Fox News who pretend to know something about what happens in the world. So, who cares??

Egyptian Justice Is Not Justice

Egypt is among the few Middle Eastern nations that still contain millions of Christians living within the midst of millions of Muslims. Coptic Christians are ten percent of the population and they date back over 1500 years ago, before the birth of the Muslim religion. Unfortunately for the people of this nation they have been ruled –or governed–by autocratic men for the past thirty years. Under their rule, corruption became the norm of operation. After the Arab “spring” burst upon the scene there was hope that some form of modern democratic society would emerge. Unfortunately, the Muslim Brotherhood under Mr. Morsi, late of the United States of America, assumed leadership. The Morsi “spring” was a study in incompetence and encouragement of bigotry. He was overthrown by the army, he is now in jail along with a thousand of his followers, and General Sisi took over. Sisi is no sissy and rules with an iron fist.

The Egyptian courts ordered the arrest of reporters for Al Jazeera and now an appeals court has ruled the trial was a farce. He ordered a new trial. Meanwhile, two men are still in jail-one was released. If the trial was a farce, why not release the men pending a new trial? Oh, this is Sisi time, and Egyptian judges will not be accused of being a sissy.

Greece Wants Dough From All

The government tot Greece is very upset at the German government. As you recall, during World War II, German troops occupied Greece and sort of wrecked things and killed people. According to newly elected PrimeM Minister Alexis Tsipras, Germany has a “moral responsibility to pay reparations to our people, to history,to all Europeans who fought and gave their blood against Nazis.” Fair enough:

1. The Greeks under Alexander the Great sort of killed a few people, burned a few towns and thus the people of Iran(formerly Persia) could use a few bucks in return.

2. As you recall, Alexander sort of went through Palestine and Egypt. As a Jew, I am owed a free vacation in Greece in return. Remember that moral obligation.

Bibi -Stay Home!

Things are getting rather bad for Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when the Anti-Defamation League of the US, which always regards any and all actions of Israel to be the word of God, suddenly comes out against the actions of Israel’s leader. Abraham Foxman who heads the ADL offered some words of advice to the Israel leader. Bibi had accepted and invitation from Republican leader John Boehner to address the American Congress on the foreign policy of the USA. This is sort of not done by countries in the world. Ordinarily, an Israel leader does not interfere with the political process of another land. But, then again, when Bibi desires something, who can deny him the right to butt into the lives of any nation in the world?

Foxman made clear to Bibi: “one needs to restart, and if needs a mature adult statement” on the part of the Israel leader. He pointed out that accepting the Republican invitation “has been hijacked by politics.” Gee, when did politics of the US get in the way of what Bibi wants or desires? The father of Benjamin Netanyahu was a Republican follower, his ambassador to the US was a Republican, and there is no doubt that Bibi is one. Stay home and keep your nose out of American politics! STAY HOME!

Iraqis Celebrate -Why?

As an American it is difficult for me to offer words of advice to any other people on this planet. I inhabit a nation in which many people do not wish to vaccinate their children against measles. However, over in Iraq, there is celebration over the end of curfew conditions. Baghdad was the scene of thousands cheering and dancing in the streets because for the first time since 2003, the government announced that people were no longer bound by curfew. Sara Adams, 22, said: “maybe it’s a little dangerous, but I just want to live my life for a moment.” Just think, for the first time since we Americans entered her land, people can actually go out at night and visit friends and family.

1. I am pleased to announce that George Bush is out chopping wood on his ranch and is not bothered by any Texas curfew.

2. Dick Cheney goes out at night to visit Fox News to announce doom and gloom.

3. Don Rumsfeld will be somewhere tonight, but sure as hell, it will not be in Baghdad.

Oh, as Iraqis celebrated there were three bombs going off.

What ToDo In Ukraine?

As you recall it was just over a decade ago when the American government led by the dynamic trio of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld decided that our very survival as a country was threatened by the presence of
Weapons of Mass Destruction and the only road to peace was the road to war. This nation is now confronted by another possible war, and it has nothing to do with Muslims, and everything to do with terrorists. However, these terrorists are Christians, and they do sort of possess weapons of mass destruction. Separatists in Ukraine are moving into new areas, and behaving as an arm of Russian foreign policy. Senator John McCain and many members of Congress urge President Obama to send in weapons and get this war escalated. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is urging caution and now allowing the conflict to escalate. Most probably, President Obama is sort of confused about what to do.

Whether we like it or not, Soviet (oops, I mean, Russian) leader, Vladimir Putin wants a war. He has no idea how his Ukraine adventure could escalate into a war that might threaten peace in the world. Sorry, Ukraine might have to lose some land. However, the long term prospect is that Putin cannot continue allowing sanctions to be imposed without damaging the lives of Russians. Caution is the best policy. It might not get approval from Fox News, but such is life-and peace!
