As Bush and the neocons were arranging the unnecessary war in Iraq, many people said the major reason for the war was to secure Israel as the dominant power in the Middle East. Collateral benefits were boosts in political careers for the political prostitutes in Washington. People who voiced these ideas were ignored or called anti-Semitic. Those of us who recognize the 'why' of the war have many reasons to believe as we do. For example: Bush advisor Phil Zelikow said it openly that the reason for the war is Israel's security ; US Senator Hollings also said it was for Israel's security and added that the war would also help Bush win Jewish votes for his reelection ; (When the Senator was attacked for being anti-Semitic, he did not back down and openly stated on the floor of the US Senate that, 'You can't have an Israel policy other than what AIPAC gives you around here  . . .'); Retired Israeli General Avraham Rotem said, 'A (US) war with Iraq serves Israel's strategic interests because it wants Saddam gone. Someone says, 'You sit back, we'll take care of it'--what's better than that?' (St. Petersburg Times, March 15. 2003, p 5A); Ahmed Chalabi, the neocons' favorite Iraqi dissident, was praised by key neocons and paraded before the American people and the Washington kosher plutocrats to tell us about Saddam's WMD, etc. After he returned to Iraq, it became painfully evident that he was not going to create an Iraq that is subservient to Israel and was then quickly dumped by the neocons and US . Add to these the fact that Israel was pressuring the US to go to war in Iraq  and you have a very solid case against the politicians and Israel. Many people who know the US government is not trustworthy seem to still believe the war is for oil. Oil, I believe, is also just collateral benefits for the political whores and their corporate buddies. If you removed the Israel element from the equation, there would never have been an Iraqi war. We would have been too busy fighting al Qaeda. To help remove any doubt that the Iraq war is primarily for not only Israel's security, but for a Greater Israeli Empire of Biblical proportions, we should look at facts on the ground in Iraq that aren't given the attention they deserve, or are not covered at all, by the established system media. The most recent eye-opening fact is Israel's intelligence officers that are currently on the ground in the northern parts of Iraq. They are there to help the Kurds help Israel . There are Kurds not just in Iraq, but in Syria and Iran as well. Iran and Syria will, based on the rantings of the neocons and Israel, be the next targets of the Bush Doctrine of Israel Above All. The Kurds are a great tool for Israel's Biblical aspirations of the self-proclaimed 'chosen people.' Israel and the US deny that there are Israeli agents in Iraq. However, the recent FBI investigation of Israel's lobby group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, for spying on the US brings out the lie of this government assertion. It seems the bait the FBI used to entice the AIPAC officials was threats to Israel's agents in Iraq!  After the AIPAC officials, one of whom was Keith Weissman, their expert on Iran, were given the information on the threat to Israel's agents in Iraq, it is alleged that they then passed it on to Israel. If the US government and Israel were telling the truth about there being no Israeli agents in Iraq, the FBI would not have been able to use their safety in the FBI sting operation against AIPAC. None of the major media outlets have picked up on this fact. The 'journalists' are too busy promoting their careers over truth. They know that if they're labeled anti-Semitic, their careers in the media will be finished. Couple the fact that there are Israeli agents working for a greater Israel in Iraq, with the fact that the Mosul oil pipeline in the Kurdish area of northern Iraq will be sending Iraqi oil to Israel  if the US government can ever get the Islamic insurgents to stop blowing it up, and you have the reason for the 100,000+ dead Iraqis, the 1,200+ dead Americans, and the 10,000+ wounded Americans from Bush's and Israel's Iraq war. To demonstrate the raw political power of AIPAC, all we need to do is look at the last election results for the 'US' House of Representatives. Of the 38 politicians elected to the House, only one, Cynthia McKinney from Georgia, isn't cowering before the mighty AIPAC ! This is a good indication that the FBI will be having a very though time getting any meaningful results from their AIPAC investigation. The political pigs know who keeps them feeding at the public trough. Will they bite the hand that feeds? Isn't it time for a free press that openly questions the deadly pact between US politicians and the Jewish state of Israel?
