“Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.” William Shakespeare

Peers, Shakespeare also wrote:  “What fools these mortals be.”  He could have found a nicer way to say that.  No matter what a person has to say he or she can always find a nicer way to say it.

You will notice that I’ve highlighted only two words in the short article pasted below.  Fortunately, Jeffrey Blankfort has already spoken out on this issue.  So has CNI’s Philip Giraldi.  Noam Chomsky will probably have something new to say about AIPAC’s shenanigans in the near future.

Bear in mind that AIPAC’s website is www.aipac.org….  Please read on to learn more about AIPAC.

Peace, Roy

P.S.   The next-to-last paragraph will explain the headline.  Peers, let’s strike a blow for freedom.  Let’s Contact The White House

Congressmen voting against bill will face retribution

The House of Representatives passed, by a vote of 401-11 on May 17, a resolution to tie the president’s hands on Iran policy. The resolution reportedly was the centerpiece of AIPAC’s recent Washington, D.C. conference.

Most of the language in House Res.568 is standard boilerplate—denouncing Iran as a “state sponsor of terrorism” that is on the road to nuclear weapons capability.

However, according to the website OccupyWallSt.org, the resolution “urges the president to reaffirm the unacceptability of an Iran with nuclear-weapons capability and opposition to any policy that would rely on containment as an option.

. . . That means that the only acceptable response to a nuclear-armed or nuclear-capable Iran is not containment but its opposite: war.”

In a nutshell, the bill paints the White House into a corner, removing negotiation and containment as tools for coercing Iran into giving up its nuclear aspirations. Whatever one may think about nuclear energy, AIPAC’s ploy is a dangerous game that could likely place the United States on a path to confrontation with the Persian state. As AFP has opined in many commentaries and editorials, an attack on Iran would be devastating for the nearly bankrupt United States and would result in this country suffering a terrible loss of life, wealth and goodwill around the world.

“In fact, 13,000 AIPAC delegates were dispatched to Capitol Hill, on the last day of the conference, with instructions to tell the senators and representatives whom they met that supporting this resolution was number one on AIPAC’s election year agenda,” noted OccupyWallSt.org….

The matter had been rushed to a floor vote. “Those voting ‘no’ . . . will pay a price in campaign contributions (the ones they won’t receive) and, very likely, will be smeared as ‘anti-Israel.’ That is how it works,” the same article added.

A companion bill is now making the rounds in the Senate.
