As Israel ramps up operations in Gaza, Niall Ferguson, Matt Pottinger, and J.D. Vance on what happens next.
FP reporting what the lap dog press will not. Need to continue with this reporting to get real stories and information out to people who actually have the ability to think.
Bottom line is, who could have seen Slow Joe’s policies being so disastrous for the country, economy, and the entire world? Oh yeah, Obama said it best, “Never underestimate Joe’s ability to F__k things up “. Well also anyone with a rational mind also could see this happening.
“And Ukraine’s embassy in Israel blasted Jerusalem “…………We expect Israel to be on the right side of history!””
Is everyone in Ukraine a corrupt manipulative pervert, or what? That is some top notch narcissistic abuser shit right there.
They have some really attractive women in Ukraine according to the internet, but, Jesus Christ, everyone who is in charge is a low rent street hustler.
Connecting Israel to Ukraine is the dumbest possible reason to have another Holocaust so I’m sure that’s exactly what we will do. I hate everyone so much. Enjoy your weekend.
“Thank god Joe Biden is here to deal with these issues.”
-actual quote I wrote down from Eric Swalwell on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show
It’s like saying imagine how much worse my stroke would have been without the vaccine. These people are all such degenerates.
Been to war as has my family. I never advocated for war. I advocate for getting rid of Hamas leadership. I am fairly certain the average Gaza resident would like to just live but with Hamas stealing everything and choosing to elect violence, you sure can not give in to killing. That will only get you more killed. So you have a choice, kill them or let them continue to kill. That’s a question for Israel to answer and not me. I simply support their right to exist as others should have the same rights.
“In 2017, he joined the Trump administration and helped craft the defining geopolitical pivot of our era: the identification of China as a strategic competitor.”
Actually the key pivot was just having a few people in charge who were not paid off by China.
The war between Israel and Hamas is many things: a fight for the Jewish state’s survival
As Israel's and American citizen, I fully disagree with this statement, Hamas is in no way danger for survival of Israel, nor is Iran. This is not Yom Kippur War or some wars from the past. What happend on 10/7 was more similar to 9/11. Small group of fanatics have by luck, incompetence of Israeli government or combination of both things have managed to commit massive terrorist attack.
Question now is, will Israel be smarter that USA has been, we ended in 2 decades of endless wars, that have done nothing but eroded our stance on global stage and at same time cost us trillions of $$$.
And for US this is a test, will it give in to neocons and military industrial complex and will it bring us to another foreign engagement in middle east.
Its like we havent learned anything from Iraq and Afghanistan.
I think that the main goal of Hamas in the 10/7 attacks was to provoke a triggered response that would kill so many Palestinians that the world would turn even more against Israel. Hamas seeks to maximize civilian deaths on both sides. Seems pretty evil to me.
"when I talked to Arab officials throughout the region whom I have long known, every single one told me that Hamas must be destroyed in Gaza ..."
As they simultaneously scream, bitch, and moan about Israel doing exactly that.
Fuck Arab officials. If you're not going to participate in the destruction of Hamas, then shut the fuck up while the people doing so are hard at work.
Great... In the aftermath of our Keystone Cops withdrawal from Afghanistan and appeasement of Iran, we find ourselves preparing to go to war under the command of the weakest and most feckless Commander-in-Chief since Jimmy Carter.
America had a tough choice in 2020...look where we are today.
Those mean tweets don't look so bad do they?
The first lesson of economics is scarcity. The first rule of politics is ignoring the first rule of economics. Thomas Sowell (quote approximate).
He also said that when people demand the impossible, only liars can satisfy them. The logical corrolary of course is that stupid and decadent people more or less demand to be lied to. The irony in our own time is that most of the time the lies are obvious but most people in this country STILL can't figure them out. Figuring THAT fact out is a preoccupation of my own.
Again, great work keeping us informed Bari.
Reading Niall F, JD Vance and the others, makes clear, the wheels have been in motion while the US and Israel were asleep. This war to eliminate Israel is well underway and we can only react. The enemy has the initiative. The US can only react... we've been caught flat footed.
The combination of the title of this article along with Biden sitting in the oval makes for one truly frightening reality.
I think America is getting close to the endgame now. Throughout history every attempt by any nation to rule over the entire world ended the same predictable way: The military and economic might of that country got overstretched and finally collapsed under all that heavy weight.
America can't fight all this wars at the same time. Ukraine......Israel......maybe Taiwan next......not talking about all the other conflicts the US choose to involve itself which do not make it into the headlines or the enormous burden of maintaining more than a thousand military bases worldwide....to suppress any opposition to the American Empire wherever it occurs.
But in order to retain its sole superpower status it has to pretend it can. Well America's enemies have studied history and know how to knock the big bully out. Just start conflicts here and there and over there, all at the same time and soon enough the giant will fall of exhaustion......
The wild card, especially for Iran, is what the US will do. If the US and Israel join forces, they can wipe out all the Axis of Evil forces, including the Iranian theocracy. This is unfortunately necessary; the kind of build up Iran has orchestrated in Gaza, Syria, and Lebanon cannot be ignored. If the US backs Israel with real military might, Egypt, Jordan, and all the others will come around. Remember, to them it is a question of who is the strong horse. We get to decide to be the strong or the weak horse.
The podcast was really terrific. Thank you. Unfortunately it took you 50 minutes to finally acknowledge that, more than anything else, the incompetence and corruption of Bibi and his entourage is at the heart of the problem. He miscalculated that by having a number of competing Palestinian organizations he could avoid a two-state solution. Never, ever underestimate your enemies.
