Wesley Clark: U.S. Support for Israel in War on Hezbollah a 'Serious Mistake'Two days ago, I urged American Jewry not to automatically pull the ballot lever for Democrats in November. Today there is more proof that my call was correct.
Vital Perspective picks up a little-noticed speech delivered by moonbat retired general and former Presidential candidate Wesley Clark at the University of Alabama on Friday:
Good questions. I think we all know the answer. Clark couldn't care less if Israel were sold down the river. The entire left wing of the Democratic party - which is becoming its dominant wing - would be happy to see it happen.There's a lot of demonstrations out there against the American government and its policies. We've made some serious, serious mistakes, the latest being - it's hard to pick the latest - but one of them, recently, was the one where we sided with the Israelis in that air campaign in Lebanon. And instead of stopping the bombing, we were cheerleading it. It hurt Israel, it hurt Lebanon, and it hurt us. It helped Iran....
We want to know if Clark acknowledges that Israel is a strategic ally, and if so, what would the implications have been for Israel and other allies had the U.S. had turned a blind eye to Iran's attack by proxy? Does he acknowledge the Lebanese government refuses to implement Security Council Resolution 1559, which calls for the disarming of Hezbollah, and that had it been implemented there would never have been a war? Finally, does Clark find inconsistencies in his positions vis-à-vis previous arguments he made that Hezbollah must be disarmed, and his new position that the U.S. should have forced a ceasefire, bearing in mind that the Lebanese government refuses to disarm Hezbollah (and until recently, assert its sovereignty over the entire country)?
