aura writes – Guess who’s not coming to dinner at the White House this week? Bibi Netanyahu was summarily smacked down by President Obama to such a degree that his pants were on the ground, causing the Israeli delegation to turn tail and hoof it to the Israeli embassy so they could kvetch in the privacy of their own highly secure compound. Oooh – the palace intrigue. Geronimo is likely doing cartwheels in his grave. The US and Israel have so much in common that it boggles the mind they can’t get along. Both countries have invaded, conquered and occupied the native lands of others, mercilessly murdered the natives of those lands, secretly surveil and jail their own citizenry, traffic in drugs with the use of their massive intelligence operations and are near universally hated. Which begs the question – why can’t they stop the kvetching and just get along? Oy vey!!! Barack and Bibi – both summarily hated, both lack honor, both brutal in their own warm and fuzzy ways. What FIERCE Leaders !!! It would be great if the US would just get out of North America, and if the Israelis were forced to return lands and pay retribution to the Palestinians, then learn to share and share alike.
