Eugene Bird, president of the Council for the National Interest Foundation, discusses Obama’s leaked plan for a Palestinian state, evictions and house demolitions in non-Jewish areas of East Jerusalem, increasing agreement among foreign policy elites that Israel must make concessions and how Iran’s nuclear issue is exaggerated by Israel to divert attention away from the Palestinian issue.

  2. According to former Trident missile engineer Bob Aldridge-http://www.plrc.org-the Pentagon aims to achieve a disarming and unanswerable first-strike capability. And according to Bob Aldridge the US Navy can track and destroy all enemy submarines simultaneously. Minuteman-3 and Trident-2 D5 linked to NAVSTAR obtain a CEP of 30-40 metres, enough to destroy any hard target. Please see the article by Keir Lieber and Daryl Press, "The Rise of US Nuclear Primary" in the 2006 March/April issue of Foreign Affairs. A First-Strike Capability won´t be complete without the missiles in Poland to shoot down any surviving Russian missiles. Even if it´s only for blackmail, the Russians may have no choice but implementing Launch On Warning. Bob Aldridge resigned because a disarming and unanswerable first-strike capability is suicidal.

  3. It seems that engineer Bob never read this story.

    Of course this is all a game as the money powers manipulate the people of the world against each other for their own ends… Why do think that the US is on a dead-end mission in Afghanistan? So the Afghan wormen will not have to wear Burkas?

    Stay home, mind your own business and quit meddling with other people's affairs. Sounds nice but it is next to impossible in a world ruled by greedy, megalomaniacal, tyrants who keep spooking their people with talk of obscure threats from people who could care less about life in America

  4. One more U.S. President, one more peace process for the Middle East, the more things remain the same.

    Israel can go f**k herself.

  6. Scott, get Mordechi Vanunu on your show.

  7. President Obama The Divine, like his predecessor the Chickenhawk-in-Chief, grovels in the dirt to Israel. No surprise, that: Remember his obsequious speech to AIPAC last year?

    Best regards to Eugene Bird and the Council for the National Interest Foundation.

  8. Scott what do you mean by the two parties each have such an interest in pleasing Israel. Have some cajones, both parties are owned by the Lobby. The prostitutes in Congress do as they are told. Since most are clueless, they happily agree to anything as long as that paycheck gets cashed. Of course the cowardice and ignorance extends beyond Congress. After sixty year that disease effects most of th population.

  9. The only true distribution of land for a peace process concerning the State of Isreal and Palestine, would need turn to the 1939 British White Paper provision that established a Jewish State along the coastal region with some territory in the Northern section of Palestine.

    This was the point (1930-39) that Zionism began their vicious aggression against both British and Palestinian. This theft and murder of innocent people is the point that must be forcefully required by the United Nations, both sides Palestinian and Jewish then need be overseen by a very strong UN force until all aggression ceases.

  10. Do not blame the Israeli people. They are as blameless as most of the ignorant American people who continue to re-elect the usual stooges to be their "leaders". Most of the world's Governments no longer work in the best interests of their people. When enough people begin to realize this fact, things will then have a chance of changing. Until then, expect a lot of the S.O.S.

  11. Well said Richard…. they are prostitutes controlled by the Jewish Lobby… Obama is not interested in a peace plan….. He is a warmonger…..
