"Israel, Israel über alles ..."

Deadeye Dick assures The Precious that the U.S. remains a loyal vassal and bulldog:
"The Iranian regime needs to know that if it stays on its present course, the international community is prepared to impose meaningful consequences," Cheney said in a speech to the to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, an influential pro-Israel lobbying group.

He said the United States joins "other nations in sending that regime a clear message: we will not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon."
I suppose it's too much to ask, that our supervisors might direct their primary loyalty toward this country, rather than some other?

Apparently so.

I saw that speech on the Span earlier.

It could have been written four years ago.

Well, I'm glad Cheney specified the type of consequences because God knows, the consequences in Iraq have been pretty meaningless.

I saw some of the AIPAC speeches on C-SPAN. Is it just me, or is there something disconcerting about so many high-level American officials showing up and making speeches for the same group? It was almost as if a third, lesser known, national party had opened its convention.

Grace, I find it disconcerting, too ... or maybe more like "nauseating." My congresscreature, a bizarre little clown named Souder, is one of the large crowd of AIPAC floozies. I once heard him say on local radio that because he's a "conservative Christian" (both doubtful, IMO), he is devoted to Israeli interests before those of this country. One of the multitude of end-times monkeys who plague us, he is.
