Puppet State America

by Paul Craig Roberts
Tuesday, November 20, 2012 –

The United States government and its subject peoples
think of the US as "the world's only superpower." But how is a country a
superpower when its entire government and a majority of the subjects,
especially those members of evangelical churches, grovel at the feet of
the Israeli prime minister? How is a country a superpower when it lacks
the power to determine its own foreign policy in the Middle East? Such a
country is not a superpower. It is a puppet state.

In the past few days we have witnessed, yet again, the "American
superpower" groveling at Netanyahu's feet. When Netanyahu decided to
again murder the Palestinian women and children of Gaza, to further
destroy what remains of the social infrastructure of the Gaza Ghettoand
to declare Israeli war crimes and Israeli crimes against humanity to be
merely the exercise of "self-defense," the US Senate, the US House of
Representatives, the White House and the US media all promptly declared
their support for Netanyahu's crimes.

On November 16 the Congress of the "superpower," both House and
Senate, passed overwhelmingly the resolutions written for them by AIPAC,
the Israel Lobby known as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee,
the only foreign agent that is not required to register as a foreign
agent. The Global News Service of the Jewish People reported their power over Washington with pride (

Both Democrats and Republicans shared the dishonor of serving Israel and evil instead of America and justice for the Palestinians.
The White House quickly obeyed the summons from the Israel Lobby. President Obama announced that he is "fully supportive" of Israel's assault on Gaza.

Ben Rhodes, White House deputy national security adviser, told the media
on November 17 that the White House "wants the same thing as the
Israelis want." This is an overstatement, as many Israelis oppose the
crimes of the Israeli government, which is not the government of Israel
but the government of the "settlers," that is, the crazed, land-hungry
immigrants who are illegally, with Netanyahu's support, stealing the
lands of the Palestinians.

Jimmy Carter: 'Israelis' Policy Is to Confiscate Palestinian Territory'

"Huffingtonpost" --  Israel and Gaza are again attacking each other, Syria is descending into civil war, four American diplomats killed in Libya: the Middle East is more fragile than ever. "Both sides should cease all hostilities," says former US President Jimmy Carter. "Israel should end its blockade of Gaza, and Western countries should work to facilitate reconciliation between Hamas and their Palestinian rival, Fatah. As long as Gaza remains isolated, the situation in and around Gaza will remain volatile."

Israel's leaders don't want a Palestinian state, Carter tells Metro in an exclusive interview with Metro. Carter, who still conducts international negotiations and is now a member The Elders, won the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize. He just returned from a visit to the Middle East.

The chances of a Palestinian state are fading. Whose job is it to fix this situation?

The peace process has been pretty well dormant for the past three years. Of course, in the past we played a key role in being the mediator and conveyer of meetings, but that's not happening either. The first priority would be for the Israelis and Palestinians to take the initiative. But the Israelis have continued with their massive settlement program in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and the Palestinians say they won't negotiate as long as Israel is continuing to take over their territory, so there's deadlock. The United States is looked upon by the rest of the international community as the primary interlocutor, so the European Union members don't take action. As a result, there's no intermediary who can move things forward and initiate peace talks.....
