Someone at posted a comment suggesting the alliance with Israel protects the U.S. from its enemies in the Middle East. I posted Joe Sobran's quote in response: "Until the U.S. forged an alliance with Israel, the U.S. had no enemies in the Middle East," to which another Fisheater responded: "Wasn't Egypt and Syria at the time of U.S Isreali [sic] alliance under the soviet wings?" My answer follows:

Could be. Why not? At one time, the U.S. was under Soviet wings.

Of course, the Hitler du jour back then was actually Hitler. So the U.S. had no choice but to forge an alliance with the Soviets. Then, at the end of World War II, after the U.S. handed half of Europe over to FDR's beloved "Uncle Joe" Stalin, U.S. foreign policy turned on a dime and "Uncle Joe" became the Hitler du jour and the U.S.S.R. the Uncompromising Enemy With Whom No Compromise is Possible.

The U.S.S.R. was such a formidable foe, in fact, that the U.S. during the Carter and Reagan Administrations had no choice but to forge an alliance with Osama bin Laden and his merry band of al-Qaeda terrorists, purportedly to help expel the Soviets from Afghanistan. The U.S.S.R. proceeded to collapse under the weight of its mismanaged economy and imperial overreach (sound familiar?) and, lo and behold, erstwhile U.S. ally bin Laden became the reigning Hitler du jour.

So you see? It all works out. The U.S. preserves worldwide disorder, inflicting death and destruction wherever it intervenes (which is pretty much everywhere). Those who hate the U.S. hate it for its freedom. Israel is a staunch ally that spies on the U.S., fires on U.S. warships, drains billions of dollars of year from the U.S. economy, and sucks the U.S. into endless, no-win wars on Israel's behalf.

Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia. And on and on it goes.
