Netanscrewyou vs. Peace Process & USA

When a government official is visiting your country, it is not appropriate to dis that official's country flagrantly in public view.

Israel decided to go rogue and get all mavericky with that protocol while the Vice President was there.

The brain-dead warmongers of that government decided to stick another knife in the back of the peace process, and announce that Israel would do additional provocative building in the disputed areas.

Biden is not a lightweight in foreign policy, and did some embarrassing of his own on behalf of the United States:
In an apparent snub Tuesday night, Biden pointedly arrived 90 minutes late to his scheduled dinner with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and he sharply rebuked the Israeli step — which came just after the Palestinians agreed to a new round of indirect peace talks under U.S. mediation after a 14-month lapse.

"The substance and timing of the announcement, particularly with the launching of proximity talks, is precisely the kind of step that undermines the trust we need right now," Biden said.

"We must build an atmosphere to support negotiations, not complicate them," he added, warning that "unilateral action taken by either party cannot prejudge the outcome of negotiations."

Good one Joe.


  1. You have to wonder how the Isrealis continue to get away with their shit. Oh that's right, they have the implicit backing of the US imperial war machine. And we wonder why that region's major export - right behind the thick black gooey stuff - is terror? I thought we paid eggheads in think tanks to figure this stuff out?

  2. disaffected,

    Netanyahu seems to see the peace kinda like the marriage of Cruella Deville to Salty Sam (song "Along Came Jones") ...
