Seth Lipkeys comparisons are ridiculous; they are numerous but miss their mark by a long shot. Iran is not Nazi Germany, and Vietnam was a war of aggression unleashed by the U.S. against the Vietnamese people, who became the victims of U.S. war crimes. The U.S. like the French colonialists were beaten and kicked out of Vietnam running full speed. The U.S. could have benefited from the tragic loss if only the leaders who followed Johnson had reflected on the lesson unfortunately not learned. Mr. Lipsey appears to be one of those who sees facts only in black and white categories. In a true sense the U.S. has long ago abandoned Israel by supporting the occupation and the settlements, by looking the other way when Israel committed war crimes and crimes against humanity by vetoing UN Security Council resolutions. It was during Obama's first inauguration when Israel invaded Gaza (Caste Lead) that led to the UN Goldstone Report. The U.S. again, to Israel's long term detriment criticized the UN for its findings of war crimes committed by Israel. Both the U.S. and Israel have to date placed all countries in a very dangerous place. Perhaps this interim agreement with Iran is a turn for the better.
