President Barack Obama's key Middle East advisor Dennis Ross said Thursday he would resign after a tenure marked by stalled US peace moves, turmoil in the Arab world and Iranian defiance.

But his critics have sometimes whispered that he is too close to Israel in a way that hampers US efforts to serve as an honest broker in peace talks.


Article clearly states this is an indication Obama has no plans for 'bolder' steps in the M.E. I sorta think it means no plans for diplomacy.

Diplomacy does not fit the agenda of the military industrial complex. Putin is doing a bit of sabre rattling about the potential for a US attack on Iran, and MSM is saying Israel is not talking to the US about their plans one way or another. vic.gif

This is a good article. Relates to those two vids AK posted this morning.

Quote:There is a mistaken belief held by many people that the U.S. government won’t attack Iran or allow Israel to attack because of the economic repercussions that will follow.

Oil prices will rise to astronomical levels, global trade will diminish, and world poverty rates will increase rapidly as the global economy comes to a standstill.

People ask: Who wants to see this nightmare scenario unfold?

The answer is clear: The Western plutocratic elite.

13.gif Brzezinski sure does talk out of both sides of his mouth. Saw an interview with him giving reasons why Iran should not be attacked just a couple days ago. Good article.

Dennis Ross, President Barack Obama’s top Middle East aide who has attracted criticism for his allegedly strong pro-Israel sympathies, will leave his post at the end of this month, the White House announced here Thursday.

He will rejoin the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), an Israel-centered think tank that was spun off in 1985 from the powerful lobby group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Ross served as WINEP’s counselor and a fellow during the George W. Bush administration from 2001 to 2009.

Washington knows what their plans are.


I know one thing for sure. They better be prepared to fight battles at home if they start another war. People are already protesting all over the world. Another big war like that and it will be on.


Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
