Does Israel Really Control the US?
This article echoes the sentiments of many people in claiming that Israel has an undue influence over the US. However, this commenter at the article has the right answer, I think:
And of course, as shown by the Anonymous Physicist, it goes much deeper than this, when you talk about the ultimate Powers That Be.
While people claiming Israel controls the US often make good points, I don’t quite believe it, for a simple reason:
HOW would a small country like Israel control the world’s only remaining superpower?
If so inclined, the US could totally obliterate Israel within mere hours, and if they’re worried about consequences, they could blame it all on an accident (“Oops, those nukes we’ve launched at Iran’s power plant fell short of their target and obliterated Israel… We’re terribly sorry!”) or terrorism committed by someone else (“The terrorists from Iraqistan stole the launch codes!”).
A scenario I think is more likely (because it would explain why this sort of thing isn’t happening): The group of criminals that run the US are working with the group of criminals that run Israel to create a country to hide behind.
Basically, they do whatever they want and make sure Israel plays along, and makes moves that imply Israel controls the US (such as making some public statements to that matter, or being very visibly involved in e.g. terrorism against the Palestinians).
If the criminals on the US side get caught red-handed (e.g. the 9/11 lies collapse completely), they go “but Israel made us do it!”, they retaliate against Israel (after telling their allies in the Israeli govt to leave the country, of course), people who don’t see through it are happy, and they’re still there and still largely in control.
But it is still really odd how so many right-wing Israel supporters (i.e. conservative assholes) are so extreme that they basically foment treason against the US in support of Israel. I can see why certain right-wing Jews/Israel-American dual citizens might do this-- but why would WASP American citizens do this? It's just weird. Either they are treasonous intel agents, or they have some truly fucked up apocalyptic agenda.
At the same time, it is worth noting that most Israelis are actually pretty reasonable, and not far right assholes, according to polls.
Update: I should note in this post the theory that Israel controls the US (and the world) via nuclear blackmail. I tend to have a hard time believing that the US simply lets Israel get away with this sort of horrible threat. Clearly, however, the US-Israel relationship is complicated, with different covert and overt elements, and there may be some element of truth to this.
