Philip Weiss


Philip Weiss, author of the blog MondoWeiss, discusses the role of the Israeli government and the neoconservative movement in lying the American people into war in Iraq, the woeful dishonesty of the American media on all issues related to the occupations of the West Bank and Gaza strip, the pathetic belly crawling of “a$%-kissing little chicken-sh*t” Gen. David Petraeus before the feet of his neocon masters as he accidentally revealed to an anti-neocon activist with a careless email forward, signs of progress in Americans’ view of Israel issues as well as those of the elites.

  1. All this is known and has been known for a long time.

    If you are still playing the dissemination game, you could be playing it for a very long time.

    Not for a hundred years of war,it is true, because the US is unlikely to survive another five.

    It makes a nice pretext for eschewing any effective opposition though.

  2. Philip and Scott are living in a dream world if they think any of this stuff about Israel will be reported in the corporate media. They fire people just for thinking about stuff like this. Americans will remain forever ignorant. I suspect pro-Zionist control of media in other parts of the world, too, though to a lesser extent.

  3. Israel looks at the U.S. the way a dog looks at a lamppost–as something to piss on. Israel commits outrages against America with impunity (“Lavon Affair,” U.S.S. LIBERTY, murders of American citizens, espionage and theft of military and technical secrets).

    General David Petraeus, AUS is a four-star hack, a politician in uniform. Admiral William Fallon, USN called Petraeus an “ass-kissing little chickenshit.”

    Damn straight, Admiral!

  4. Oh, I gotta tella Wesley Clark story. I once asked him on a FDL book salon whether he was proud of having bombed the Serbians. It caused quite a stir. Of course he didn't a my q, but there it was.

  5. Umm, Admiral William Fallon seemed like Buck Turgidson to me, so I wouldn't pay any attention to what he says. I also don't think David Petraeus seems that bad, but I don't know anything really.

    Things in his favour; he passed out at that hearing, probably from the sheer ugliness and horror of it all and he bothered answering that guys emails. He is also probably aware that if he prances around denouncing the Israel lobby he will end up like Anthony Zinni. He probably knows Max Boot is a dangerous creep and he has to suck up to him to be able to come out and even say anything about Israel at all.

    Is he Ron Paul? No. Is he even principled? Obviously not. But I reckon he is not that bad, unless you have other evidence otherwise. Not that I am saying don't trash him, vilification works!
