I don’t have the intention of writing an essay, and not even a letter, since there’s too much written concerning the subject, and too little done with any practical outcome.
I just want to point out a few disconcerting hypocrisies of US foreign policy, which from not only my point of view includes a lot of bla-bla and nothing positive.
I read in yesterday’s paper that the United States has sent Israel a batch of artillery ordnance. Most of the weapons used in the Gaza massacre were US-made or Israeli copies of them. And then there’s the annual military aid and the $3 billion annual transfer. So from my point of view, it’s America who is carrying on the killing in Gaza, with Jewish aid.
This isn’t just my lonely and biased opinion, as the State Department would surely call it; it’s all of my post-graduate pupils’ opinion as well as that of all the people I talk to.
You invaded and destroyed Iraq, leaving it in the hands of ISIS; the same happened with Afghanistan and the Taliban; you meddled in Syria, Libya, Egypt, Etiopia and Sudan, just to mention a few of your “humanitarian” interventions.
Finally, your attitude and actions are leading to open war fron Iraq to the Mediterranean. I don’t know if this is your intention, though it looks like it. What I absolutely do not understand is what you plan to obtain from this.
