Is James Baker the New Neville Chamberlain?


The answer would be yes according to senior Israeli politician Uzi Landau, a member of the opposition Likud Party. He said he saw a parallel between the bilateral panel's report and Western powers' failed attempt to placate Nazi Germany in the late 1930s.

Peace in our time? Not if we follow the Iraq Study Group's proposals.

The long-awaited report of the Iraq Study Group (ISG)(a better name would be the New Rainbow Coalition), chaired by James Baker and Lee Hamilton, was finally released on Wednesday. The report contains 79 recommendations that essentially advises diplomacy with Iran and Syria, a gradual withdrawal of combat troops by 2008 (combat conditions permitting), the embedding of large numbers of U.S. ‘advisors’ to help the Iraqi security forces take over and a resolution of the Israel/Palestine conflict.

Isn't it easier just to say SURRENDER?



Why not throw in World Peace, the End of Poverty, Unlimited Energy and any other Utopian goal?

If they believe Iran and Syria desire peace in Iraq then I'm betting most of the panel still secretly believes in the Easter Bunny.

The panel was composed of five Democrats and five Republicans, and from the start bipartisan consensus was the goal. What was left off the panel was any IRAQIS or any MILITARY experts, nor do any of its members have any military backgrounds.

Any attempt to appease either Iraq or Syria can only have disastrous consequences.

As Uzi Landau stated "You do not fight terror with appeasement. You don't negotiate, instead you fight until you prevail. But when you look at the Baker-Hamilton report what you see is no different from Chamberlain's policy toward Germany."

If only America had the resolve to fight until we prevailed.
Appeasement is so much easier.

But the long-term effects are much more dangerous.

Iran is in a full out press to acquire nuclear weapons. So far the West has been "less than successful" in deterring Iran. But what many people don't know is that Iran is also rapidly developing its own space program. Its efforts are three pronged: to enhance surveillance of the surrounding region, to improve both the accuracy and reach of its military strike capability, and, finally, to lift its prestige among its fellow Islamic nations and within the world at large.

Obviously Iran would not be able to achieve anything close to a space program without the help of China and Russia. Both figure in the equation by providing Iran with necessary technical knowledge to establish and develop this program. German manufactured technology has also been observed in connection with Iran’s space efforts. Pakistan and North Korea have also contributed to the program.

Are we really ready to resume another Cold War? And this time with an enemy that might desire bringing about the Apocalypse.
We are still the world's only superpower. If ever there was a time to stand up... now is that time.

I was at Barnes and Noble yesterday and read most of the book.

Funny commentary AC.

Great point on the lack of Military stragetists in the group.

You are sooo right in your assessment AC.

I concur!

I think the "group" achieved consensus amongst themselves by adopting the Chinese Menu approach to foreign policy recommendation. It requires a "leader" to choose two from column A and one from column B, not order the whole thing.

Me, I think I'll go find a Greek restaurant.

Of course it doesn't matter to you, AC, that Uncle Sam gives its full throated backing (and massive amounts of welfare to boot) to an Apartheid colony that has engaged in massive ethnic cleansing for more than 60 years.

Nor do you concern yourself with the fact that the same Zionist state is an admittedly rogue nation in terms of its own nuclear weapons.

Nope, you concern yourself with what Iran might have sometime in the future according to unnamed sources with a penchant for outright fabrication.

"Screw actions... I mind only the words of Dick Cheney."

Either this demonstrates a profoundly disconcerting myopia about world affairs or it's Vanilla Sam showing his bare naked ass.

I suppose it could be both.

Here we have the illucid commentary of the narcoterrorist supporting John Brown in idiotic mode. A simple look at demographics reveals what countries have ben ethnically cleansed.

Three cheers for drug pushers in Hezbollah, FARC and Taliban. Three cheers for Marxist neoslavery and class genocide. Starvation is just another way of liberation.

The above are some of the labotomized John Brown classics.

AC, you're dead on track about Baker, but I've been labeling Bush as Neville Chamberlain. I guess they're the same.

Isn't it very odd that our president would allow such a pushover "statesman" like Baker to simply walk in and take over his entire foreign policy which is a failure anyway?

JB... Apartheid is generally used to describe racial segregation but religious segregation would fit just as well.
What you seem to miss is that Islam institutionalizes segregation between Muslims and non-Muslims (infidels).
According to the Quran, the idolaters are to be killed wherever they are found. (9:5)
Israel is a Democratic country. All citizens - including Arabs are afforded the same rights under Israeli law.
In fact, Israel is one of the few places in the middle east where Arab women are allowed to vote.
Arabs currently hold 8 seats in the 120-seat Knesset.
How many Jews are serving in the governments of Islamic countries?
Islam is not compatible with democracy.
Un-believers cannot be equal to believers and women are not equal to men.
At least Communism made the pretense of equality. Islam makes no such pretense.
Muhammad's butchery of his victims was psychopathological. He would massacre entire populations simply because they rejected him or hurt his humongous narcissistic ego.
The Christians and the Jews, the so called People of the Book, had some conditional rights. They had to pay Jizyah and buy their protection. Nonetheless they lived in a state of religious apartheid and were subject to humiliating treatments.
These infidels were considered najis (impure) and were not allowed to go out on rainy days, lest their impurity may rub to a passing Muslim, make him “impure” and annul his prayer. The Jews and Christians were required to dismount from their donkey or horse if they met a Muslim in their way and they were supposed to greet the Muslim humbly and show submissiveness towards him. The Dhimmis were not allowed to build their houses taller than those of their Muslim neighbors and in some cases they were not allowed to build new churches and synagogues and needed permission to repair the existing ones.
That is what I call "religious apartheid".

EXCELLENT AC, I couldn't agree with you more.
So true about Arabs in Israel.
The jews were the first to cultivate Palestine and brought running water to the West Bank.
And what about Nazareth, it is an Arab town.
The Arabs never had it better there.

Cutting and running (ie running away with our tails between our legs) is the worst thing to do.

It DOES, however, understand Teddy Roosevelt's "Big Stick Diplomacy" of the early 20th Century.

Everyone knows that, whether he's working with fascist collaborators in Colombia, Vietnam, Afghanistan, or South-Central LA, Uncle Sam is the world's biggest drug pusher.

AC

It is time for John Brown to go. His comments serve no purpose other than trolling. Even his counterparts at Renegade Eye condier him to be a fraud.

The facts remain Hezbollah and the Taliban are Narco terrorists. FARC is a Narco terrorist outfit and Brown supports all of the above.

Brown is a supporter of Drug dealers and then wants to rail about the plantation. People who live in the inner city do not need Comwad John Brown to tell them about their problems.

Moreover, John Brown ( a trust fundista) has no right to lecture Native American or Inner City people about problems in their community. Brown has never held a job in his life and his parents pay for his Revolutionary delusions of grandeur.

Now to your response, AC:

Apartheid is generally used to describe racial segregation but religious segregation would fit just as well.

You, and not I, try to make the struggle over Palestine a fight about religion. That is not my position.

Religion is an opiate & a chimera meant to deflect attention from what's really happening.

My position is that the fight for Palestine is fundamentally an economic/geopolitical struggle. Imperialist powers used the UN to steal land from and create a European settler colony (French occupied Algeria) for material reasons.

Weakened by WWII, Europe could no longer maintain their control of the Near East through direct imperialism as they had done for several generations.

So Apartheid Israel - bankrolled by Uncle Sam's welfare checks and European nuclear technology - became their proxy.

They created Apartheid Israel by fiat in 1947 and have used it since then as a force to divide and conquer the Near East, greasing the skids for resource theft.

The effort to misrepresent the struggle for Palestine into a fight over 'timeless hatreds' between Jews, Christians, and Muslims is a religious fantasy designed to distract from the material reality.

Apartheid is also geographical or spatial in nature. In Occupied Palestine - particularly in the occupied West Bank, Gaza Strip, and Golan Heights - Apartheid Israel has created Jewish only neighborhoods, roads, schools, etc.

But it is hardly a purely religious phenomen. Ethiopian Jews, to cite one example, suffer from profound discrimination within the Zionist state despite their faith.

What you seem to miss is that Islam institutionalizes segregation between Muslims and non-Muslims (infidels).

You're speaking in generalities that have very little material meaning. There are many, many millions of Muslims, and (like most Christians and Jews) most have no political authority to institutionalize anything.

The Zionist colony, however, has stolen land for decades and carried out a campaing of ethnic cleansing, beginning prior to the Nakba, and built an Apartheid system for White European Jews upon it.

According to the Quran, the idolaters are to be killed wherever they are found. (9:5)

Never read the Quran. But I have read the Bible, and I can cite many similarly brutish things from it.

Israel is a Democratic country. All citizens - including Arabs are afforded the same rights under Israeli law.

10,000 Palestinian political prisoners are held in Zionist concentration camps without charge - many held there for years.

In the same way that Uncle Sam speaks the rhetoric of political rights even as it usurps those rights from both those living on (Katrina victims) and off (Iraqi victims) the Plantation, Apartheid Israel does the same thing in Occupied Palestine.

The 'Democratic' state is always-already used the rhetoric of democracy, along with welfare checks, to build apartheid Walls, set up checkpoints, rip down olive groves, and bulldoze the homes of
people who have tilled the land for generations.

That's not democracy. It's ethnic cleansing under the guise of democracy.

In fact, Israel is one of the few places in the middle east where Arab women are allowed to vote.

I know women voted in the recent Palestinian elections, and since they have Apartheid Israel imposed a genocidal seige on the people. Women can vote in Lebanon, too, if I remember rightly.

That didn't stop Apartheid Israel from killing 1,000 Lebanese civilians or dropping hundreds of thousands of cluster bombs in that country in an effort to kill a maximum number of civilians (while doing little to actually weaken Hizbullah).

Arabs currently hold 8 seats in the 120-seat Knesset.

And one of the highest ranking officials in that same Knesset, fascist Avgidor Lieberman, has advocated murdering them.

The bottom line is that Palestinians have resisted their expulsion, and the fact that they still have representation in the 'government' of a colony that has forcibly tried to cleanse them says more about their capacity to resist than it does anything else.

How many Jews are serving in the governments of Islamic countries?

I'm not sure. How many Jews in Arab countries have had their homes bulldozed with money from US taxpayers?

How many Jews in Arab countries have had their land taken from the state with the construction of an Apartheid wall?

Islam is not compatible with democracy.

No monothiestic religions are, since none locate power with the individual. Islam and Judaism have much in common.

All use mysticism to compel human beings onto their knees.

Un-believers cannot be equal to believers and women are not equal to men.

And this differs from Christianity how?

At least Communism made the pretense of equality. Islam makes no such pretense.

I agree.


Muhammad's butchery of his victims was psychopathological. He would massacre entire populations simply because they rejected him or hurt his humongous narcissistic ego.

While I don't apply blame to Muhammed exclusively for the crimes of all Arabs, I don't dispute the bruality with which Muslims have acted. Their slave-trade in Africa was as genocidal as the European variety.

The Christians and the Jews... lived in a state of religious apartheid and were subject to humiliating treatments.

Meanwhile, Christian crusades have massacred thousands - including the 650,000 dead in Iraq over the last 3 years.

Look forward to reading your response, AC...

At 10:43 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Lets see 1400 years of Islamo colonialism against Jews and other indigenous people seems an inconvenient fact. How do people become colonialists in lands they are indigenous in.

Among the many books Comwad Brown does not read are history books.
All the states of the region are in fact creations of an Anglo Fwench treaty in 1920.

There is no Palestine or Psudostinian ethnicity. This was a Communist contrived creation of Nasser who used refugees like Hockey pucks.

Brown supports Narconazi terrorists and uses their flag as his symbol.
Then the faux clown of the Progressives rails against drug abuse in the inner city supplied by FARC, Hezbollah and the Taliban.

What a clown? Even the folks at Renegade Eye describe Brown as a fake. He is more mental case than Marxist but the two are often one in the same.

Oh lucky day! John Brown has come to town, the symbol of all that is wrong with Western Civilization summed up in one avatar.

Usually when you want to dis a leftwing moron you have to search out their whacked out websites, but AC lucks out and has the head jester save him the trouble by visiting his domain!!!

I cant believe that you still have that avatar JB. You painted the Hezbollah flag red to show your Socialist solidarity. Isnt that cute?

Well... the reality is that they are an Islamic Supremacist organization that wants a Shiite Islamist state.

So if they succeed in their goal the Socialists will be the first to "go". It will be another betrayal like 1979 Iranian revolution where the socialists helped Khomeini seize power only to get executed and jailed as thanks.

Hows your other friends Hamas and Fatah doing?

Why is it that Democracies never fight amongst themselves, but JBs friends fight all the time.

By the way JB, are you Trotskyist, Stalinist or Maoist?

...funny how the Left has made an idol out of historicism.... just so long as they get to pick the "point of origin" for the narrative... some Westerner's crime. One need only go back a little further in history to an earliers point to uncover the 3rd worlder's crime that provoked it.

Marx made the original mistake. His followers are trapped in a death spiral of resentment.

"I'm not sure. How many Jews in Arab countries have had their homes bulldozed with money from US taxpayers?

How many Jews in Arab countries have had their land taken from the state with the construction of an Apartheid wall?"

Well let's see...with the help of Saudi Arabian and Iranian money (Iraq used to be a contributor) Islamic fascist have for the most part chased all Christians and Jews from their lands. You don't need to steal anybody's land if you've already driven them off or slaughtered them.
Bethlehem was once 90% Christian, now Muslims are the majority. Apparently living under Islamic law wasn't the best deal for the Christian population. I wonder who now lives in their houses?
As far as your "Apartheid Wall", you should remember that the Jews are the original and proper owners of this land. This is in stark comparison to what happened in South Africa.
Jewish authorities have the obligation to protect the people of Israel, using a Wall is a hell of a lot less than what I think should be done.
And please don't use the Pseudostinian argument that they were the original inhabitants. Judea existed long before any made up Palestine.
Israel first became a nation in 1312 B.C.E., two thousand years before the rise of Islam
What really is a Palestinian?
An Arab.
Nothing distinct... no heritage, Customs, traditions, language.
The Palestinians are descendants of the Arabs who came at the Muslim conquest in the seventh century. If they were the descendants of the original Canaanites they would be speaking today Hebrew and not Arabic!

Brooke said, "Let's not forget why the "apartheid wall" was built... To stave off homicide bombers and sniper's bullets."

In JB's leftwing frame of thinking these are affirmative action techniques justified as "Resistance".

Lets talk about the apartheid in Palestinian controlled areas. Not a single Jew is allowed to live there. It is illegal to sell property to a Jew and the punishment is death. Is there such a law on the books against Muslims in Israel?

Didnt the Nazis accuse the Jews of oppressing them as well?

Communists hate the Nazis only for invading Russia. If the Nazi invasion of Russia never occured they would still be allies.
