Will the USA ever have its own foreign policy?

Rethink Afghanistan

When foreign policy is well-reasoned, we see attention given to humanitarian issues like housing, jobs, health care and education. When that policy consists of applying a military solution to a political problem, however, we see death, destruction, and suffering. Director Robert Greenwald witnessed the latter during his recent trip to Afghanistan--the devastating consequences of U.S. airstrikes on thousands of innocent civilians.

We must rethink our policy toward Afghanistan. Congressional oversight hearings on Afghanistan would facilitate a substantial public debate on this war. What's more, these hearings would coincide with President Obama's effort to craft policy that represents the diversity in public opinion and the wide array of tools at his disposal.

The clips I saw on DN were heartfelt and touching, bringing tears to my eyes. But the director Greenwald is a bit naive if he thinks Congress will hold oversight hearings on Afghanistan or Obama will craft some sort of sane foreign policy.

America's foreign policy is crafted in Tel Aviv and is designed to keep the USA bogged down and fighting Israel's real and perceived enemies for decades, which will give Israel the breathing room it needs to finish 'wiping Gaza off the face of the Earth' and stealing what little land the West Bank Palestinians still have.

While Americans cower in fear, afraid of another false-flag hitting them, Wall Street con artists and gangsters will continue to rob them blind.
