Can Russia Save the Day?

"You are my creator, but I am your master--obey!" So said the Monster to its creator Frankenstein [1] .    As with the monster and its creator, we witness once again Israel telling America to obey -- to start yet another war of choice and massacre Iranians.


For over six decades, Israel has demanded full obedience from the United State.   Every   U.S. president, pressured by the pro-Israel lobbies in the United States and the Congressional members whose primary loyalty is to Israel at the expense of America's national interest,   have been forced to comply with the ever-increasingly bellicose Israeli demands.  No wonder Benjamin Netanyahu imagines himself unstoppable.


Netanyahu, one of the most dangerous Israeli leaders, is demanding another war so that he may continue the aggressive usurpation of Palestinian and Arab lands uninterrupted by public opinion and in disregard of international laws.   The thuggish Netanyahu came to Washington to demand surrender from its puppet master, America, like every other Israeli politician before him.   He demands sacrifice from Americans in the firm belief that all sacrifice is justified, having witnessed his own brother, Yonatan Netanyahu, get killed in a 1976 Israeli false flag operation in Entebbe, Uganda.


Lending support to his conviction is the American cover-up of US servicemen murdered by Israel.  When the USS Liberty was attacked by Israelis and the servicemen deliberately massacred, the Johnson Administration's cover-up of the tragic event sent a clear message to Israel:   American leaders have your back, even if you murder our citizens.  


However, the   Soviet message to the Israelis and America was different -- as one hopes Russia's will be.


In January 1970, Israel's deep penetration raids into Egypt prompted Nasser to plea to the Soviets for help.   The Soviets sent a warning to President Nixon, who dismissed it (thanks to a faulty Israeli intelligence analysis of the Soviet intentions and capabilities). By March, the Soviets had provided Egypt with air defense, and Soviet troops equipped with advanced weaponry had arrived in Egypt.  In addition to the 10,000 Soviet technicians, Soviet pilots were flying Egyptian planes in combat (Ball '92).   The firm action taken by the Soviets forced Israel to modify its tactics and stop its deep penetration raids.  


Perhaps it is time for Russia to once again stop this aggressive madness so that balance and sanity may resume.


The Israeli plan to wage war on Iran, will, by necessity, drag in the whole region and make the conflict global in scope. But how important is Iran or the other Islamic countries devastated by the US-Israel relationship? As Azar Gat, Ezer Weizman professor of National Security at Tel Aviv University opined ( Foreign Affairs, July-August 2007 ), "radical Islam" poses "no significant military threat to the developed world.."   The significant challenge, she contended, emanates from China and Russia operating under "authoritarian" capitalism, poised for a comeback.
