Mearsheimer and Walt were right -- but in a way they would never admit. *Israel* would be better off WITHOUT THE US. The country Israel placates and grovels to the most is the Rome of our day. Lieberman is the new Bar Kochba. By being so close to Washington, Israel implicates itself in culpability and guilt by association with inhuman US atrocities from Bagram to Guantanamo to Abu Ghraib to AfPak to the Egyptian/Saudi/Jordanian dictatorships, etc. The ethical thing for Israel to do is to end its 'special relationship' with Washington. If Lieberman becomes PM, maybe he will bring this to fruition. Israel needs a special relationship not with America but with Eurasia.
