Most Asians do not take well to foreign domination.

Most recently they can point to the failed American takeover attempts in Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq. Without a valid, stated reason they waged preemptive wars in these countries until they have killed 7.2 millions human beings. The Americans are so violently dense they still can't understand why Asians should resist Christianity and 'democracy' so vigorously. They are constitutionally unable to see any viewpoint expressed by a non-American. They will condone any atrocity against outsiders perceived to be acting opposed to US interests.
The US public has exported violence and tyranny for so long they fail to see the forces of evil that have ascended in the homeland.

The most recent example has been the demise of single payer health insurance. Citizens of industrialized nations do not trust private for-profit companies to govern the public health. Robber Barons rarely act in the public interest. Like banks, they must conform to the rule of regulation and law or risk elimination. As it is in the USA, Wall Street controls the government and the government suppresses the people. Mussolini would have approved of the current set-up.
In the end Mussolini hanged upside down on a whipping post naked with his mistress. His son was a passable pianist in cocktail bars - a more honorable profession.

Blame the Government, but the People are Responsible

After eight years of threats, terror and 7,000 exploding missiles, the bulk of Israeli citizens had enough from the Palestinians. Better than most, Jews recognize the quality of Arabs just wanting a better life for their children as we do. In the final analysis, however, we would not be doing them a kindness to let them off the hook for kidnapping, murder and bombardment.
Their problem is a failure to overcome the negative outside influences. From the year 2000 the EU, Canada and Norway dumped $8 billion dollars on them. A proper government could have developed infrastructure and other worthwhile projects to build the state. Instead, the semi-terrorist leadership bought weapons. Iran supplied missiles that could strike anywhere in Israel. Ordinary Palestinians should have taken actions to disarm their leaders.
Similarly, the American citizens should have voted for legislators who would not take bribes from the military/industrial complex to wage perpetual land wars in Asia. They should have stopped selling nuclear secrets to tyrants in the Middle East. They should have ended the arms shipments to Israel of exotic and cruel weapons of war for field testing.
Thus, the Americans and the Palestinians do not control their respective governments.

Dreams are Nice but Hardball Gets It Done

If we are lucky enough to get a public option, it will suffice for our purposes. After that is set, nationalize the health insurance firms and send their executives to boot camp. The hourly personnel can administer the new single payer program H.R.676.
While they train, the House can defund all military overseas bases and bring our children home.
The insurance executives can choose between deployment in Afghanistan or lethal injection for murdering 122 people per day.
Legislators should return all health insurance campaign contributions to the Treasury. If they won't, they should also suffer lethal injection.
If there is any failure of resolve, House Members can consult Rep. Anh Joseph Cao R-LA for moral courage.
