Then the U.S. needs to take a hard stand with Saudi Arabia and Israel (in addition, not instead of Iran.)
The only thing that prevents the U.S. from taking a hard stand with regards to Israel’s Apartheid State and Saudi Arabia’s Sunni Jihad are the Big Oil Corporations and the Military Industrial Complex / Defense Contractors. Iran is no saint but international law needs to be applied equally. We rightfully condemn Iran’s funding of terrorists but look the other way when Saudi Arabia does it. We rightfully condemn Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons but ignore that Israel has them. We rightfully support a two state solution but refuse to put the necessary pressure on Israel, when the ball is in their court. The U.S. needs to stop supporting dictatorships out of convenience. U.S. corporate media gets paid off by states like Bahrain and threatened by AIPAC or ADL to distort or omit reality. The U.S. and the world is less safe because our media is entirely corrupted and we are Defense Contractor’s and Big Oil’s bitch.
