The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.03:48 31.08.15 | 1 comments
The US has NO obligations or "promises" to honor to Lebanon, any more than we have to Somalia. It is a cesspool of French-instigated Muslim-Christian fratricide for which neither the US nor Israel can be blamed. US arming of Lebanon has been failing since our silly occupations of 1958 and 1982, which cost hundreds of American lives, gaining absolutely nothing. US State Dept. officials have been insisting for decades that US military aid would fight off militias, not to support gleeful, unprovoked attacks on Israel, and they have now (no surprise) been proven to be liars. Somali-like Lebanese terrorism and warmongering violence has gotten a free pass for too long. The chips should be let to fall where they fall, and that means no more aid for Lebanon unless they recognize the Blue Line instead of claiming part of pre-67 Israel, and prosecute the officer who ordered the sniper attack, instead of giving him medal. Why do we need "friends" like this, Mark?
