Washington runs things. "With regard to the joint US-Israel war games which culminated with the attack on Gaza, Israel is visibly the junior partner."

"The United States is not 'supporting' an Israeli military endeavor." It's a "major actor in the attack on Gaza. The US is therefore a perpetrator of war crimes together with Israel."

Seldom are these important observations made. Imperial ambitions are involved. Large and smaller military operations have a purpose. 

Expect others to follow Operation Pillar of Cloud. Cessation of current hostilities is a ruse. Israel and Washington will invent pretexts to continue conflict. False flags will be used. So will manufactured provocations.

Hamas, other resistance groups, and regional independent governments will be blamed. The same scheme plays out in disturbing repetition. This time won't be different.

On November 21, each side claimed victory. As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. It's toxic.

Netanyahu claimed Israel "destroyed Hamas' control over the Strip."

Barak said "all the operation's aims were fulfilled."

Hamas political head Khaled Meshal said Israel's "attack failed and the leaders of the enemy failed in their adventure." 

"Eight days of fighting forced them to give in to our conditions. The destruction left by Israel did nothing to change the fact that the resistance won."

After 64 years, Palestinians haven't achieved a single meaningful victory. At the same time, anti-Israel/US sentiment grows.

Global protests condemned Cast Lead. They erupted again after Pillar of Cloud attacks. Hundreds of protests occurred throughout the Middle East, Europe, North America, and elsewhere. 

Israel and perhaps America are the world's most reviled countries. Growing millions reject their contempt for human life and well-being.

Debate continues over military and political winners. Palestinian resistance is no match against Israel's war machine. The death, injury, and destruction toll on both sides leaves no ambiguity.
