You mean the Palestinians were bait?
Seems reasonable, two birds with one stone. IS kill the Palestinians and then march into a trap.

We answer to Israel, that's why.
If Israel says he's a bad dude, then he must go!

AIPAC offers mandatory training on foreign affairs to our law makers. They are free not to sign up but they are free to whine when they don't win elections. That's how it works.

Your politicians approved of this, so there's no use complaining now.

It's not Israel or Saudi


http://finance.yahoo.com/news/us-iran-closer-people-realize-202049060.html



So we give free money to Israel and unquestionable support; we arm the Saudi with the latest killing machines but we embargo Iran to the hilt yet the latter is fighting against the terrorists while the other two support ISIS. What gives?


Can someone explain this?
How Russia and China Are Planning to Counter US Economic Warfare
Washington can't afford to look like its done a deal to lift sanctions on Iran.
It doesn't care if Iran believes the lies.
Lifting the sanctions has remained merely as a promise on a piece of paper, so much so that it has roused the protest of Iranian politicians.
Israel was unhappy, and we know that's going to cost, whether in billions of dollars, war planes, or reneging on the Iran deal, and leaving sanctions in place, and Iran's billions in American banks.
Talking of banks, Washington still threats European bank with +billion dollar fines if they decide to deal with Iran.
“The American side is promoting conditions in such a way that today even European banks and companies do not dare to establish financial relations with Iran – since all of them fear America’s reaction in the form of sanctions [imposed on those same banks]. Actually, the reason for the delay in the commencement of the European banks’ financial cooperation with the Iranian banks and the failure to facilitate banking and economic transactions, is because many of the American sanctions are still in place, and Iranian banks’ financial transactions are [still] facing restrictions. Moreover, given their continuing fear of the biting legislations and penalties for violations of the Americans’ old sanctions, European financial institutions are concerned about violating the American sanctions that continue to be in force …
It looks like Israel stepped in, and changed the terms negotiated by the W.H. and the president, and agreed on by Iran.
Russia and China have been watching and have learned that you can't deal with Washington, they don't honor their agreements.
What Washington are beginning to realize, is
the U.S. and European economies are now so vulnerable and volatile that China and Russia can, as it were, whack-back at America – especially where China and Russia co-ordinate strategically. Yellen specifically signaled “weakening world growth” and “less confidence in the renormalization process” as reasons for the Fed backtrack.
Lew is not going soft, saying that the US needs to use its tools more prudently; far from it. His point is different, and Ignatius exposes it inadvertently:
“U.S. power flows from our unmatched military might, yes. But in a deeper way, it’s a product of the dominance of the U.S. economy.
Anything that expands the reach of U.S. markets — such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership in trade, for example — adds to the arsenal of U.S. power. Conversely, U.S. power is limited by measures that drive business away from America, or allow other nations to build a rival financial architecture that’s less encumbered by a smorgasbord of sanctions.”
This latter point precisely is what is frightening Lew and Ignatius. The tables are turning: in fact, the U.S. and Europe may be becoming more vulnerable to retaliation (e.g. Europe, with Russia’s retaliatory sanctions on European agricultural products) than China and Russia are, to unilateral Treasury or Fed warfare.
This is the new hybrid war (and not the hot air issuing from NATO). Lew and Ignatius know that a parallel “architecture” is under construction, and that Congress’ addiction to new sanctions is just speeding it into place.
So, why then is the U.S. Treasury so zealous in undermining the effectiveness of JCPOA’s agreed lifting of sanctions? Well, probably because Iran has less leverage over the global financial system than either China or Russia. But also perhaps, because “Iran sanctions” are (erroneously) viewed by U.S. leaders as the Treasury’s “jewel in its crown” of geo-financial success.
What may be missing from this hubristic interpretation, however, is the understanding that Iran’s experience will not be lost on the others, nor on the SCO when it convenes its next meetings on how to combat Western “color revolution” operations (with Iran likely joining that organization as a member, rather than an observer, this summer).
“It is pointless to expect the US administration to cooperate with Iran given the comments of the US officials, including [National Security Advisor] Susan Rice, since the Americans’ comments and behaviour reveal their non-compliance with their obligations and speak of the absence of the US administration’s political will to implement even its minimum obligations.”
As they must realize, other more powerful nations see what goes on, and look to measures that can prevent Washington doing the same to them.
