The United States & the State of Israel’s Military Policies are at the Root to many of our Problems
It is the hypocrisy of what the United States and the State of Israel are saying in what they are doing militarily compared to the political realities on the ground. Between the way we say things are and the way things are really there is too often a great difference. It is this gap where the miss-understandings are created taking our leaders down the wrong road that is going the wrong way too many times. With the single issue lobbies such as the military industrial complex, pro Israel, Banking, Oil, etc leading the way of our elected leaders in Washington D.C..
Our nation never heeded to the warning of former President Eisenhower about the threat of the Military Industrial Complex in his 1961 Farewell Address. Today the United States militarily has become almost everything we accused the former Soviet Union durning the Cold War. Just look at the number of nations and the number of countries the United States has a military presence and the amount of money we are spending in the name of military defense and security. The United States and Israel are trying to maintain foreign/military policies and actions that are not sustainable over the course of time. With many of these foreign/military policies and actions being at the root of so much of the great hatred and contempt of both nations by the international community of nations.
