Mad Dog Leaders Threaten Humanity

US and Israel perpetuate imperial madness.

by Stephen Lendman

A common thread defines Obama and Netanyahu. Their agenda threatens humanity. Both head modern-day Spartas.

Israel is very much involved in Washington's war on Syria. At issue is destroying another independent state, murdering thousands, planning more wars, and threatening the entire region and beyond.

Iran is next in line. Saber rattling combines with war by other means. It includes sanctions, subversion, instability, cyberwar, targeted assassinations, other disruptive actions, and relentless scoundrel media vilification and fearmongering.

On August 3, Haaretz headlined "King Bibi in trouble." Poll numbers show a 60% disapproval rating. It's not for institutionalized militarism and belligerence. It's about new budget cuts hardening neoliberal harshness.

Most Israelis are fed up with what harms their well-being. Their narrow definition omits likely blowback from regional wars and more planned. Conflict rages cross border in Syria. If attacked, Hezbollah can respond in kind.

Key is whether Israel plans bombing Iran's nuclear facilities. Doing so is lawless, madness, and self-destructive. Nonetheless, heated rhetoric suggests it's possible.

On August 2, Haaretz headlined "Ex-Mossad chief said what should be clear to everyone - Israel has never been so close to attacking Iran," saying:

According to Ephraim Halevy, "if I were an Iranian, I would be very worried about the Israeli talk about a possible attack, because Israel's threats sound serious and credible to me."

No longer publicly active, he may or may not know what's planned. Haaretz said he's not "another establishment stooge." Nor is he "gung-ho." 

He's wise enough not to reveal state secrets. Perhaps he commented because someone asked. Once a Mossad insider, always one. Iranian officials will parse his comments carefully. 

On August 1, Mossad-connected DEBKAfile (DF) headlined "(Ayatollah Ali) Khamenei Warns Iran's Top Leaders: WAR IN WEEKS," saying:

Before Friday, July 27 prayers, he "summoned top Iranian military chiefs for what he called 'last war council.' "

DF claims he told them "(w)e' will be at war within weeks." Allegedly he ordered high alert readiness, fortifying Iran's nuclear facilities, and retaliatory responses.
