British Prime Minister David Cameron is scheduled to begin the pomp and circumstance of a state visit to the United States of America.
The relationship between the two nations has been “special” since King George III. PM Cameron says it is now “essential.”
The Jerusalem in the New World conceived by the Puritans of Massachusetts after the War of 1812, the Civil War in 1861 and Emma Lazarus’ New Colossus in 1883 makes the relationship between the USA and the UK, neither special nor essential, because today’s United States after World Wars I and II in the 20th century, is “Jewish.”
United States is at war since 9/11, committed to a generational sacrifice to consummate the transformation of Middle East and North Africa (MENA) on Israeli terms at the barrel of a gun. Rivers of blood, contrary to a Rabbi’s recent apprehensions, are for Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu more a reminder of Moses’ warning to the Egyptian Pharaoh than they are for compromise with the Palestinians.
America is an opportunistic nation when it comes to protecting its (and Israel’s) interests, especially when the snake is trampled on. It goes to war when it is cornered. It is now, all but expelled from the Middle East after the transition in Egypt has been bungled, after Syria has been pushed too hard and as Iran is being sanctioned to advance the dominance of Israel in the region.
Arab Spring, upon which America’s and its president’s Nobel prestige is hinged, must be saved at any cost from Russia and China together with Afghanistan, no matter the behavior and attitudes of US soldiers on the ground or of Washington. So, the preparation is on for war to ward off anti-Israeli sentiments from Israel in the states of the Middle East, akin to World War II in Europe and Japan.
In the minority on the permanent UN Security Council on the admission of Palestine into the United Nations, voting alongside Israel which is not a member of the P5, Barack Obama wants Cameron’s vote for his Israeli strategy.
The encirclement of Israel is also the encirclement of America, good for America, Israel and the rest of the world as it transitions.
