Pro-Israel Washington real ‘chickenshit’
US President Barack Obama (R) and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
So, an anonymous White House official dared to call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a chickenshit this week. And the media is full of it, pondering on whether the vulgarity foreshadows a strategic rupture between Washington and its favorite client regime.
American critics of Washington’s indulgence of this regime delude themselves by thinking that America has been “hijacked by Zionists.” In their view, if only the good old US of A could wake up to the Zionist scam and shake it off then America might be redeemed as a noble nation with normal relations to the rest of the world.
Hence the excitement this week over the anonymous Obama official’s putdown against Netanyahu. Some wishfully see this spat as a sign of the US finally cutting its ties with Zionist usurpers and corrupters of America.
That notion fails to understand that the US is at root an imperialist entity that relies on war and foreign domination to assert its capitalist hegemony in the world. Removing Israel will not change that systematic fact. Only a fundamental overhaul of the US from within, breaking its warmongering capitalist system, will produce a law-abiding, peaceful nation.
