AIPAC Lobby Myth 8 – Paul (Reaganomics) Robert’s Israel Fixation

Bekerst8765

If you’re not familiar with Paul Craig Robert’s writings, you probably have a cavity in your political knowledge. Click over to his site and get a filling.

In one of his recent blogs, Be A Proud American, he posts a column by Felicity Arbuthnot: USA Has Been Destroying Iraq And The Country’s Population For 15 Years.  It’s a must-read.

Paul introduces the article,

The horrific war crimes, the worst in human history, of the Clinton, Cheney/Bush, and Obama regimes make Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seem mild and gentle.
Is Washington’s slaughter of Muslim populations and countries a policy in behalf of Zionist Israel?

Arbuthnot’s article shows a stark picture of USA war crimes, but all war crimes are horrific, Nazis included, and claiming ”worst in history” is as meaningful as judging sorrow and suffering. She mentions neither Zionists nor Israel in her article. Why does Paul?

Despite his merits Dr. Roberts seems frustrated. (Aren’t we all?) He desperately tries to tell us about the evil nature of the American government, but can’t absorb this truth himself. He can’t swallow white Christian Americans committing massive diabolical war crimes, so Zionist Israel must be the real culprit. As he isn’t the only disillusioned and frustrated American, the someone-else’s-fault lands on fertile ground.

Are the 1%ers (the corporation commanders) determining Washington’s foreign policy or is it Israel? Do Bill Gates and Warren Buffet take orders from Natanyahu? Does Israel have more influence over Washington than the military and the weapons industries? Lockheed Martin alone employs 126,000 people and harvests over $3.5 billion a year in profits. The top five corporations filling government military contracts have together over 500,000 employees contributing to $15 billion in profits. Over 100 companies eat off the military contract pie.

Israel functions as a colony of the American Empire and could never have established itself without direct aid and support of Anglo-American power. This vicious, degenerate, racist, murderous and apartheid country is a de facto forward base for the US military. The $billions in “aid” it receives yearly goes largely to buy weapons from the US weapons industry. The American tax-payers foot the bill. Israel has as much power over US foreign policy as a pit bull has over its owner?

Why does Paul C. Roberts keep singing the ridiculous Israel Controls America song? This nonsense from an otherwise keen political analysis cannot be attributed solely to frustration. Perhaps trauma explains his obsession. He can’t live down his role as a major contributor to Reaganomics and the juicy tax breaks for the yet-to-be-named 1%ers in the 1980s.

Perhaps! Perhaps, in time, reality will trickle-down to this man who was awarded for his “outstanding contributions to the formulation of United States economic policy.” Or, perhaps Paul, who was a Distinguished Fellow at Charles Kock’s Cato Institute (a think tank), knows something he’s not revealing to us.

Compare Tom Engelhardt’s excellent article, They Just Can’t Stop Themselves

with Paul Craig Robert’s article, Zionist Israel Hides Its Crimes Behind Its Smears of Truth-Tellers
