Knocking Out Iran. The Final Punch: Removing Iran from the New Middle East Equation, Atlantic Free Press.

Ramzi Baroud wrote: “The configuration of the New Middle East — as envisaged by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during the Israeli war against Lebanon in July-August 2006, most certainly has no place for more than one regional power broker, namely Israel.

Under such an arrangement — subservient Arabs and Iran governed by an all powerful Israel and supervised, even from afar by the seemingly philanthropic United States — would ensure Israel’s ‘security’, which has for long served as a casus belli, and supposed American interests in the region; regardless of what one thinks of such logic, in Washington, it is still prevailing …

    Hi Homie,

    For once, Reuters covers an Arab “Summit” (Arab Pit would be a more fitting appellation but I’m digressing) with a certain degree of intellectual honesty:

    “Instead of land-for-peace, it is peace-for-nothing, or nothing-for-peace,” he said, depicting Arab governments, drained by years of conflict, ready to sign on the line at any price.

    “This summit will deliver the U.S. demands and conditions to … a group of people who will not feel safe walking in the streets of their own capitals,” AbuKhalil said.
