Found on the Net:
Washington is locked into its Obama-Kerry fantasy strategy of manipulating all six moving parts to
- Get rid of Assad,
- Marginalize the Salafists,
- Wear down ISIL,
- Keep Erdogan at bay,
- Placate the Saudis by helping them kill Houthis,
- Equip the Israelis on the Netanyahu-Liebovitz illusory march to the Euphrates.
The only variation under consideration is the neo-con one of bombing Assad and daring Putin not to start WW III. Both are pipe-dreams that soon will have to be recognized as such.
This is all exactly correct with the exception of Number 6. They Israelis are not trying to steal any more land that’s not in the West Bank or Gaza. The whole Nile to Euphrates thing is a paranoid notion from the anti-Zionists and Arabs. Yes, there are a few Jews who talk about this, but there is no Israeli government plan to conquer any of the land in question.
That’s a six part Rube Goldberg of a foreign policy contraption. I must say, the whole thing is utterly insane. I can’t believe how crazy my government is, but really, it’s always been just about this nuts and deranged for my entire lifetime.
If Washington’s foreign policy was a human, it would be tried and sentenced to Atascadero as a dangerously mentally ill criminal.
And Americans just go right along.
Shaking my head.
