Eric Cantor’s World

Filed under: Uncategorized — mihaibeltechi @ 5:12 pm

1. House Majority Leader and Israel-Firster, Eric Cantor (Likud, Va), tellsus what is most important to him when it comes to US foreign policy. (Note to Shas Party members, red-highlighting is mine. Oh, and congratulations on the likely return of the criminal Arieh Deri to your ranks.]

“Global security depends on strong U.S. leadership. Nowhere is the president’s lack of leadership more apparent than in the unraveling of the United States’ relationship with Israel. Since the beginning of President Obama’s term in office, strengthening the bond between the U.S. and our closest ally in the region has taken a back seat to other priorities, a fact that was made clear with the president’s recent refusal to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. American security is inextricably tied to Israeli security. The United States must not abandon its partners at a time of enormous instability in the region.”

2. If you live in Eric Cantor’s world, and only if you do, then the fake debatethis week between the two lying war-mongering buffoons makes sense to you.  If you live in the real world you can see that almost everything that was said by both of these clowns was either a bold-faced lie and/or based on a profoundly distorted understanding of just about everything happening within the solar system.

In other words, for Americans, the debate made perfect sense. The rest of the world is in shock and awe at how profoundly stupid Americans are. No doubt this is because the US educational system, major media, financial sector, entertainment industry, casino industry, and all three branches of government are firmly under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood.

3. As a public service I have decided to put all the quotes about Israel from this week’s debate into one file. They are in order for each of the war-mongering Zionist-controlled candidates.  You can read the whole charadehere, which will also help put the quotes in better context, but they say an awful lot when looked at in and of themselves.  Note how the two Zionist-controlled stooges dance around a most interesting question posed by the “moderator” who just happens to be quite the insider and whose brother was part of the George W. Bush administration. He also has an interesting role in the coverage of the JFK assassination, but I digress.

(Obama): Now, it is absolutely true that we cannot just beat these challenges militarily, and so what I’ve done throughout my presidency and will continue to do, is, number one, make sure that these countries are supporting our counterterrorism efforts; number two, make sure that they are standing by our interests in Israel’s security, because it is a true friend and our greatest ally in the region.

(Obama): But ultimately, Syrians are going to have to determine their own future. And so everything we’re doing, we’re doing in consultation with our partners in the region, including Israel, which obviously has a huge interest in seeing what happens in Syria, coordinating with Turkey and other countries in the region that have a great interest in this.

(Obama): They have to abide by their treaty with Israel. That is a red line for us, because not only is Israel’s security at stake, but our security is at stake if that unravels.

(Obama): And, Governor Romney, our alliances have never been stronger – in Asia, in Europe, in Africa, with Israel where we have unprecedented military and intelligence cooperation, including dealing with the Iranian threat. But what we also have been able to do is position ourselves so we can start rebuilding America.

(Moderator Schieffer): A lot to cover. I’d like – (murmurs) – I’d like to move to the next segment: red lines, Israel and Iran. Would either of you – and you’ll have two minutes, and President Obama, you have the first go at this one. Would either of you be willing to declare that an attack on Israel is an attack on the United States, which of course is the same promise that we give to our close allies like Japan? And if you made such a declaration, would not that deter Iran? It’s certainly deterred the Soviet Union for a long, long time when we made that – when we made that promise to our allies

(Obama): Well, first of all, Israel is a true friend. It is our greatest ally in the region. And if Israel is attacked, America will stand with Israel. I’ve made that clear throughout my presidency. And —

(Obama): I will stand with Israel if they are attacked. And this is the reason why, working with Israel, we have created the strongest military and intelligence cooperation between our two countries in history. In fact, this week we’ll be carrying out the largest military exercise with Israel in history, this very week.

(Obama): And the reason we did this is because a nuclear Iran is a threat to our national security and it’s threat to Israel’s national security. We cannot afford to have a nuclear arms race in the most volatile region of the world. Iran’s a state sponsor of terrorism, and for them to be able to provide nuclear technology to nonstate actors – that’s unacceptable. And they have said that they want to see Israel wiped off the map.

Romney:

(Romney): Secondly, Syria’s an opportunity for us because Syria plays an important role in the Middle East, particularly right now. Syria is Iran’s only ally in the Arab world. It’s their route to the sea. It’s the route for them to arm Hezbollah in Lebanon, which threatens, of course, our ally Israel. And so seeing Syria remove Assad is a very high priority for us. Number two, seeing a – a replacement government being responsible people is critical for us. And finally, we don’t want to have military involvement there. We don’t want to get drawn into a military conflict.

(Romney): And so the right course for us is working through our partners and with our own resources to identify responsible parties within Syria, organize them, bring them together in a – in a form of – of – if not government, a form of – of council that can take the lead in Syria, and then make sure they have the arms necessary to defend themselves. We do need to make sure that they don’t have arms that get into the – the wrong hands. Those arms could be used to hurt us down the road. We need to make sure as well that we coordinate this effort with our allies and particularly with – with – with Israel.

(Romney): We have to also stand by our allies. I think the tension that existed between Israel and the United States was very unfortunate. I think also that pulling our missile defense program out of Poland in the way did we was also unfortunate in terms of, if you will, disrupting the relationship in some ways that existed between us.

(Moderator Schieffer):  A lot to cover. I’d like – (murmurs) – I’d like to move to the next segment: red lines, Israel and Iran. Would either of you – and you’ll have two minutes, and President Obama, you have the first go at this one. Would either of you be willing to declare that an attack on Israel is an attack on the United States, which of course is the same promise that we give to our close allies like Japan? And if you made such a declaration, would not that deter Iran? It’s certainly deterred the Soviet Union for a long, long time when we made that – when we made that promise to our allies

(Romney): Well, first of all, I – I want to underscore the – the same point the president made, which is that if I’m president of the United States, when I’m president of the United States, we will stand with Israel. And – and ifIsrael is attacked, we have their back, not just diplomatically, not just culturally, but militarily. That’s number one.

(Romney): It’s also essential for us to understand what our mission is in Iran, and that is to dissuade Iran from having a nuclear weapon through peaceful and diplomatic means. And crippling sanctions are something I’d called for five years ago when I was in Israel speaking at the Herzliya Conference. I laid out seven steps.
