Aftre 8 years of bombing and occupation, US has destablized the Middle East and created more conflicts and hatred in the region at the expense of many innocent lives. Exterritorial force is always counterproductive.

ISRAEL RENEWS & INCREASES ATTACKS ON GAZA

Israel renews and increases attacks on Gaza civilians and destroys Gaza’s only power plant and UN schools, disregarding UN Security Council calling for “an immediate and unconditional cease-fire” and worldwide protests against Israel’s war crime behavior.

Frontpage-60.1

Given US’s long standing support for Israel with annual aid of $3.2 Billion since 1949, US owes a duty stop such war crime behavior forthwith. However, Susan Rice, on behalf of the Obama Administration, supports Israel, arguing that “[w]hen countries single out Israel for unfair treatment at the UN, it isn’t just a problem for Israel, it is a problem for all of us”. US has destroyed its credibility in being the lead defender of world peace and justice with such contradictory, biased and unjust policies.

__________

MURDEROUS RESULTS OF SPINELESS DIPLOMACY

BRICS FORMS NEW DEVELOPMENT BANK

DEMOCRACY IN TEARS

Frontpage-7Interest Groups > Silent Majority

The simple majority rule, when created, was hailed as the ultimate epitome of human accomplishment in modern civilization–democracy, replacing tyranny, corruption and abuse. However, over the years as the population grows, this simple majority rule has become a monster of anti-democracy, because nowadays unions, special interest groups and political machines control and manipulate the outcome of most elections.  And they often represent the opposite of the best interests of the silent majority.

This phenomenon has become a tremendous social cost that has virtually driven the country into the ground, because, through the chosen proxies elected, the unions, special interest groups and political machines monopolize the power to allocate the public resources as spoils to themselves, to re-insure re-elections, defeating the very purpose of democracy at public expense.  This situation can only get worse, unless rectified now.

KERRY FRUSTRATED

“A two-state solution will be clearly underscored as the only real alternative, because a unitary state winds up either being an apartheid state with second-class citizens—or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state.”
Frontpage-16.1 “There is a fundamental confrontation and it is over settlements – 14,000 new settlement units announced since we began negotiations. It’s very difficult for any leader to deal under that cloud.”

Frontpage-17.3

Kerry compelled to rephrase a day later: “If I could rewind the tape, I would have chosen a different word to describe my firm belief that the only way in the long term to have a Jewish state and two nations and two peoples living side by side in peace and security is through a two-state solution.”
