America's entanglement with Israel

Lieberman-McCain Strike Again

with 30 comments

According to Foreign Policy’s Josh Rogin, Sens. John McCain and Joe Lieberman are “on a surprise trip” to the Turkish-Syrian border to meet with leaders of the Free Syria Army. Rehashing the rhetoric that led the United States into wars in Kosovo, Iraq and Libya, the deadly duo proclaimed:

If America still stands for the cause of oppressed people who are fighting for their freedom, and justice, and deliverance from tyranny, we cannot abandon the people of Syria. We cannot shirk our responsibility to lead. Our deepest values and interests compel us to act in Syria, and we must do so before it is too late.

The only “surprise” is that Israel doesn’t try to cover its tracks better.

  1. In his new interview with Sibel at BFP Engdahl argues that Israel is not happy with the regional changes and may actually be supporting Assad.

  3. US Senators (on behalf of AIPAC & the Neocon Israel firsters) John McCain and Joseph Lieberman during a recent visit to a Syrian refugee camp in Turkey (pushing for the rest of the ‘Clean Break’ war for Israel agenda via that the Iraq invasion.was based on as well!):

    “They both called for more arms to be given to the rebels, and Senator McCain’s last remark to reporters was: ‘See you next year in Damascus.’ Now this kind of attitude is hardly helpful to the ceasefire that Kofi Annan is trying to set up,” Salt said.


    Seems like what James Morris mentioned about McCain and Lieberman in his ‘Russia Today’ (RT) appearance was spot on (youtube of it is included near beginning of Dr. Stephen Sniegoski’s article about such as the links at the bottom there are informative as well):

  4. PS: Keep in mind that Israel first AIPAC/neocon mouthpieces McCain and Lieberman don’t care about Israeli oppression of the Palestinians ( as US support of such was the primary motivation for the tragic attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 (and earlier at the World Trade Center in 1993 as well) as one just has to look up ‘Israel as a terrorist’s motivation’ in the index of James Bamford’s ‘A Pretext for War’ book and take a look at the following links as well:

  5. Engdahl argues that Israel’s strategic position has been weakened by change in Egypt and other countries. He talks with pride of his sources in Israel who inform him that US/Israeli relations are at an all-time low since Truman. BHL on the other hand assures us that as an unconditional supporter of Israel he is delighted with the “arab spring.” Don’t know what to make of Engdahl and all the other Larouchies past and present. Was he a Trot like the rest of them?

  11. Israel is a state born of Zionist terrorism. (Read Jewish Historian Ilan Pappe’s The Ethnic Cleansing Of Palestine) And the terrorism continues:

    as Israel is systematically expanding its illegal and undeclared borders onto its neighbor’s lands:

    The United States, unduly influenced, bribed and coerced by Israel’s agents (some sitting members of US Congress) and Lobby, has spent trillions of dollars keeping this Zionist abomination alive against a torrent of binding US Security Council Resolutions and international Human Rights laws that Israel violates with impunity, and the US is now engaged in costly undeclared wars once again at the demand of Israel.

    Iran, unlike Israel, is complying with IAEA. There is not one shred of evidence that Iran is developing nuclear weapons, yet the world has known since 1986 when Mordechai Vanunu exposed them, that Israel has already developed nuclear weapons. Israel has hundreds of bombs and other devices, including thermonuclear weapons that it refuses to declare, as it defiantly thumbs its nose at IAEA inspectors who aren’t allowed anywhere near its vast stores and its secret facilities.

    Israel’s push for an attack on Iran has more to do with Iran supplying DEFENSIVE (as in Mutually-Assured-Destruction Doctrine) weapons, including medium-range rockets, to Israel’s victims in Lebanon and Gaza. These weapons give Israel’s violent leaders pause before unleashing attacks on innocent unarmed people like Israel did in 2006 and 2008-9. Weapons funneled through Syria from Iran are a primary reason that Assad and Ahmadinejad are being undermined simultaneously by CIA and Mossad- trained mercenaries:

    With Lebanon and Gaza disarmed, Israel can continue what it has done for 6 decades with impunity; continue murdering innocent people out of the way of its expanding illegal borders. That Senators of the US empire (which is also expanding its world dominance) would support this is not surprising, really.

  12. Two TRAITORS. Party flipping LIEberman, and the “jailhouse snitch” McCain. They are SUPPOSED to be HERE working for jobless AMERICANS. Not overseas GROVELING to Israel.

  13. James Morris mentioned the above about Lieberman and McCain in following Press TV interview from this morning:

    Morris: Obama keeps troops in Afghanistan not to be called loser (my latest Press TV interview from this morning)

  14. These two public servants are out of order (ref Article 1 – The Legislative Branch
    Section 8 – Powers of Congress, US Constitution).
    McCain if a representative only for Arizona. Liberman is a representative only for Connecticutt.

    They speak for no persons other than those of their respective states!
    Therefore every action, word, they make outside of these confines must not only be ignored, but immediately, loudly, publicly denounced.

    There is nothing in the US Constitution that authorizes these two schmucks to be visiting any foreign nation, let alone a bunch of state-sponosored hooligans. These two should be immediately recalled for overstepping the boundries of their official public servant duties.

    Similarly – the controlled media – promotes these two and all others who promote their cabal’s cause (one world empire) and must also be ignored but also called out for the misuse of public communications.

    Pass it on … by yelling at the top of your lungs about these 2 bafoons and all who behave as they do.

  15. So why do you think Israel sent the Mercenaries?


    April 12, 2012 at 11:10 pm

  16. […] Lieberman-McCain Strike Again (for AIPAC and the Neocons of course!) […]

  17. Speaking of oppressed people, what about Palestine? I hope that the United States and Israel change what they are doing, because they will soon be where they are going.

  18. Following is a youtube version of James Morris’ Press TV interview posted above:

  19. Israel didn’t send mercenaries. The story was disinformation designed to obscure the key role Israel partisans were playing in Gaddafi’s downfall.

  20. I see. Nevertheless there apparently were Black mercenaries that aided Gaddafi in his brutal repression of the peaceful protesters who are masters at sharp shooting. This was part of the three charges laid against him at the ICC. They redacted the part with the specific evidence. You can go to the ICC ( International Criminal Court) to get the documents yourself.

    All of these Arab revolution are carbon copies of the Romanian one in 1989. A fantastic documentary to watch is : Checkmate Strategy for a Revolution. What you can see in it and what is happening in the Arab Spring is that they need a large body count. The body count serves as a PR campaign against the “Evil” Dictators. So when I see Israel sending mercenaries I tent to believe it, this will give them control on obtaining their body count.

    Nevertheless I did see the article in Al Jazeera about a Talmud being found in one of Gaddafi’s palaces. I think that one’s fake.

    By the way these Tuareg ( Black Mercenaries), after looting Gaddafi weapons , have now gone to Mali.

  21. ‘Neocon John’ McCain at it again vs Syria for Israel (on behalf of the neocons, AIPAC and rest of the pro-Israel lobby) on ‘Face the Nation’ this morning:

  22. […] Posted in Zionist Threat « Russia Is Massing Troops On Iran’s Northern Border And Waiting For A Western Attack […]

  23. McCain’s father and McCain have consistently put Israel ‘s wants above the needs of the United States . Both covered up Israel ‘s heinous attack on the USS Liberty:

    Now McCain is leading the AIPAC-cowed and corrupted Congress in pushing US involvement in yet another costly war for Israel . Wars and other actions for Israel have cost US taxpayers $3 Trillion to date:

    Syria and Iran are being simultaneously undermined by Israeli and US covert forces in order to sever the conduit of defensive rockets flowing to Israel ‘s victims in Gaza and Lebanon . These vital weapons give Israel pause before it launches other wars of aggression like those it launched in 2006 and 2008 on innocent unarmed people as it continues illegally expanding its yet-undeclared borders.

    The US can no longer afford legislators like McCain, who support the crimes of Israel , crimes that are making ever-more enemies of former US allies.

  24. Exactly right, David. Cindy McCain puts Israel first as well and doesn’t care about Israel murdering American sailors and marines (on the USS Liberty) either:

    Cindy McCain on the USS LIBERTY COVERUP: “I don’t care about this issue.”
