Why the March 23rd AIPAC conference is different from all other years
"Israel cannot make its intentions more clear than if they had a knife to this country's throat ; that US must attack Iran in Israel's defense, to "neutralize" yet another "existential threat" to Israel's existence.
Israel doesn't want any Israelis to fight, get killed or maimed, in the process: they insist on the US military do the killing, getting killed, and maimed for them.
That is the message of this AIPAC Conference.
And unfortunately, the US Congress, having actually resigned their collective responsibilities of listening to, and actually representing We the People, will probably give AIPAC and Israel the war it wants.
It is not, however, a war which is in any way morally justified, or supported in any way American citizens. Of course, that will make utterly no difference to Congressional members.
They understand without question what happens to a Congress member who doesn't support Israel's agenda.
And if you don't believe that, ask Cynthia McKinney."
