Noam Chomsky has finally 'outed' himself as a key defender of
segregation and war, as long as it serves Israel.
Here's the wise Professor's revealed methodology: beat the neo-
Marxist drum, ignore non-conforming facts, publish another long,
windy book, and blow smoke. True to form, his latest expose on the
"hidden reasons" behind America's latest war on Iraq fails to even
mention the U.S.-Israeli "special relationship", or the essential
role played by highly placed Zionists in shaping U.S. war policies.
For him, the world's doom and gloom is always and forever about "U.S.
imperialism"--even within the Israeli-dominated Middle East. In
Chomsky's steady-state universe, America is the rapacious master,
Israel our hapless servant.
Noam Chomsky does correctly note that the entire basis for the latest
U.S. war on Iraq (non-existent WMD's, links to Al Queda, quest for
uranium, etc.) was a deliberate fabrication, but his sins of omission
from there are too great to ignore.
The Professor's latest summation ("It's the Imperialism, Stupid") is
a classic example of 'Zionist Denial'--the widespread but dishonest
brand of political scholarship that cynically deconstructs every
political institution, lobby, spin doctor, motive and manipulator
except those with a Zionist pedigree. Thus, for Chomsky, if every
dirty political trick in the world cannot be traced directly to the
CIA, then proceed directly to Step Two: search every corporate board
room and find the culprits there.
Prof. Chomsky's latest Grand Theory about U.S. war in Iraq can be
But trust me, you can skip it. If there's even one idea there that
hasn't already appeared in one of his previous essays, I didn't spot
The Professor speaks with forked tongue
Besides covering up for Israel's longstanding devotion to ethnic and
religious segregation, Chomsky and his disciples have been pushing
the "No War for Oil" myth since the 1990-91 Gulf War, even though
their predictions continually fail and their theories never explain.
Please recall that in 1990, Bush Sr. gathered and lead an
international coalition into Kuwait (know as the Gulf War) to end
Saddam Hussein's "illegal occupation". OK, this certainly wasn't the
President's only reason (or even his main one) for launching the Gulf
War, but Chomsky and his Zionist-friendly cronies can't resist the
opportunity to manufacture an even bolder fib, indignantly declaring
that this first U.S. invasion was launched so "imperial" America and
its corporations could "seize Kuwait's oil".
It was a provocative and cynical theory, not completely untrue, but
deliberately incomplete and therefore false.
Consider the actual events of the original Gulf War, a brief military
rout which ended in complete Allied victory in Feb., 1991. Within
months of the Iraqi army's abject annihilation and humiliating
retreat from Kuwait, the bulk of U.S. forces DID LEAVE Kuwait and NOT
ONE U.S. GOVERNMENT AGENCY OR CORPORATION CONFISCATED ANY KUWAITI
OIL. Chomsky and his acolytes were wrong. Following that much
ballyhooed victory and throughout President Clinton's subsequent
eight-year economic blockade on Iraq, NEVER once did any U.S.
corporation siphon off Iraqi oil or benefit economically from the
lethal "oil for food" program that was administered in Iraq through
the United Nations under American auspices. The 'war-for-oil'
theorists were wrong still. This is not to say that the U.S. has
behaved virtuously, or even fairly. Indeed, what DID happen in Iraq
were the needless deaths of some 500,000 Iraqis from malnourishment
and disease due to U.S. sanctions. Significantly, Chomsky has never
produced one document proving (or even linking) America's two wars on
Iraq with corporate oil interests or their unseen lobby. Israel's
strategically positioned lobbyists however DID enthusiastically favor
both Iraq wars, as well as the deadly sanctions applied under Pres.
Additionally, over American protests, Israel has for the past decade
initiated the construction of countless 'Jewish Only' housing units
in occupied Palestine. True to form, Chomsky attributes Israeli
expansion and brutality to American coercion. Translation: Israeli
malfeasance "understandable", therefore Zionist crimes forgivable;
but American motives "greedy", therefore U.S. actions evil. Does
Prof. Chomsky actually believe this stuff? Only his Rabbi knows for
The unpleasant truth is that if American aggression is 'all about
anything', it's all about Israeli power and security.
Indeed, the only winners in America's first war on Iraq (the Gulf
War) were the Kuwaiti royals, U.S. arms manufacturers and, as always,
the ever-expanding Jewish State. What's clear is that the old
Professor has a special place in his deceiving heart for the Zionist
dream of a Jewish country unchallenged in militarily power and
unencumbered by non-Jewish inhabitants.
Indeed, the 1990 rescue of Kuwait's plutocracy cost the U.S. taxpayer
untold billions and left Iraq decimated, demoralized and disgraced.
At the close of the Gulf War, the Iraqi death toll at the hands of
U.S. bombing sorties may have reached 100,000, which is over thirty
times the number of Americans killed on 911. Additionally, following
the first Gulf War, Iraq slid into deep economic and cultural
DEPRESSION. Please keep in mind that our special ally, Israel, still
maintains an uninterrupted, illegal 38-year-old military occupation
in Palestine, which is only a stone's throw from Iraq. Israel also
and receives not only unprecedented levels of U.S AID but unwavering
U.S. DIPLOMATIC COVER. The Jewish State has also managed to assemble
a nuclear stockpile without so much as a peep of protest from the
U.S. Our news media is similarly accommodating on this crucial issue.
Unbeknownst to most Americans, our leaders like Israel more than one
might expect. Consider these adoring remarks made by California
Democrat and Minority Whip Nancy Pelosi. In her recent speech before
Israel's preeminent lobby group, the American-Israel Political Action
Committee (AIPAC), she declared: "America's commitment to the safety
and security of the State of Israel is unwavering. America and Israel
share an unbreakable bond: in peace and war; and in prosperity and in
Without blushing, Pelosi closed with these somber remarks: "The
United States will stand with Israel now and forever. Now and forever."
Thunderous applause followed from a packed audience that was
virtually all Jewish.
Yet incredibly, AIPAC is presently under federal investigation for
espionage against the United States!
No matter. Our political class understands all too well who rules our
great republic and who therefore must be glorified and adored. As for
Zionist Israel's countless victims, Pelosi uttered not a word.
With this everyday embarrassment as a backdrop, Noam Chomsky has
risen to the status of Grand Ayatollah of politically-correct
During the Viet Nam War, Chomsky's brand of trendy radicalism enjoyed
great prestige. Without embarrassment, he confidently explained away
that region's turmoil largely to Western Imperialism while, at the
same time, avoiding the unpleasant details about murder, deceit and
oppression which are the hallmark of life under communist rule.
Today, Chomsky prefers accord privilege to Israel's uniqe brand of
political sins and condone the racist component within Zionism that
legitimizes a segregated, Jewish State in a land hitherto occupied by
Please recall that even though Israel pretended not to have any
involvement with America's vast international coalition in the
1990-91 Gulf War, the Iraqis knew otherwise and sent their few
remaining scud missiles into Israel to demonstrate their
understanding that this needless bloodbath centered around Zionist
ambitions--not some phony oil conspiracy or the liberation of an
obscure Arab Sheikdom.
This is where the role of deception becomes critical. Many Americans
now realize that just before our country's invasion of Iraq, there
were the now famous (but discredited) claims about Iraq's links to
All Things Evil--not to mention its real threat to world freedom and
democracy. But who remembers the grotesque yarn about Kuwaiti babies
being disconnected from their feeding tubes in hospital incubators by
invading Iraqis? It was all part of the pre-war hype that turned out
to be a slick, neo-conservative war advertisement.
For those who believed that Iraq's invasion of Kuwait posed a threat
to world oil supplies, Hussein himself succinctly addressed that
unfounded fear well before Bush Sr's. invasion. Concerning the
widespread misapprehension about Iraq's "controlling the world's oil
resources", Saddam Hussein contemptuously posed this question: "What
do you expect me to do with the (disputed) oil, drink it?" Pleases
note that the U.S. is now some $300 billion in the red over just this
most-recent Iraq bloodbath. How much Iraqi oil will America have to
steal just to break even? The Chomsky crowd never says.
Indeed, Iraq's invasion of Kuwait never posed any genuine threat to
global oil supplies. Oil remained relatively cheap throughout the
ensuing Gulf War and for ten years after. These two Arab governments
were merely fighting over who would bring this precious commodity to
But when Iraq invaded Kuwait (with the implied consent, thought
Saddam Hussein, of high U.S. officials) our Israel-friendly political
establishment shrewdly seized an opportunity to humiliate the Jewish
State's key Arab rival. Foolishly, Hussein took the bait. When
America unexpectedly threatened to wage war over Kuwait, the Iraqi
dictator refused to back down. It was Hussein's pride that became his
undoing. Finally, in hopes of averting the war, Hussein freed some
200 American tourists in a futile peace gesture. But it didn't help.
The war dogs were determined to unleash a campaign of non-stop
bombing that the world had never seen.
During the final negotiations prior to the first U.S. invasion of
Iraq, the Iraqi dictator offered to withdraw from Kuwait if Israel
would do the same in Palestine. American officials dismissed this
peace overture as a "non-starter". The American news media eagerly
followed suit, dropping the entire episode deep into a political
memory hole. That peace overture, like Hussein's release of the
Western hostages, it is now only dimly recalled. The Gulf War
produced a high-tech military execution which left tens of thousands
of Iraqi dead, with an even greater number of Iraqi families in
In the 43 days it took the U.S. coalition to crush Iraqi resistance,
some 88,500 tons of bombs fell on Iraq. It was the greatest five week
bombing campaign in world history. By contrast, the legendary, eight-
month-long "bombing blitz" by Nazi Germany at the start of WWII
lobbed only 24,000 tons of bombs on all of London. That Pres. Bush
Sr.'s popularity reached its zenith following America's lopsided
military 'victory' over Iraq may be more a testament to the power of
orchestrated pro-war reporting than to heroism on the battlefield.
The war-for-oil theory was then, and remains today, part of a Left-
Zionist smokescreen which falsely identifies the "hidden"
machinations behind continued U.S. aggression towards the Arab (and
Persian) world. If it's "all about oil", then why is America now
threatening to invade even Syria, a NON-oil exporting country?
Chomsky doesn't say. The good news is that the world still has some
two trillion barrels of known oil reserves. Despite the ongoing oil
hype, we're not about to run out of petroleum.
What is hard to deny is that U.S. policies unflinchingly sustain the
modern (unstated) doctrine of selective enforcement of U.N.
resolutions. Its essence: Israel--with key American support--remains
uniquely above international law. And to advance this 'value', our
ruling establishment will steadfastly wage war. It's no wonder that
the U.S. and Israel now rank among most feared and disliked countries
in the world.
Meanwhile, the Chomskyists are determined to keep Americans from
critically examining the Zionist role in these needless wars. They
are succeeding so far because they have legions of highly-placed
allies who are committed to dusting the fingerprints off any Zionist-
engineered boondoggle. For this Grand Illusion we also have our
mainstream news media to thank.
American democracy has failed to provide its citizens with a clear
choice on this vital issue concerning unconditional support for
Israel. Our Mid East po licies remain in the hands of lobbyists,
Party bosses and special interests who operate far above the will or
consent of American voters. Sadly, this nation's marriage to the
Jewish State was conducted in the dark decades ago without even the
benefit of a public ceremony. Big money and big weapons systems have
been changing hands ever since.
As the causalities mount and resistance builds, it's worth
remembering that it's not too late for America to change course.
