Israel says "Jump!"Americans ask: "How high?"
By Justin Raimondo
"What Israel wants is what they have always wanted: to use American power, American tax dollars and American lives to advance their own expansionist agenda.
The Israeli answer: invade Lebanon, force the issue, and go for the throat. With the Israel lobby going full-bore andthe propaganda mills churning, the invasion undermines the Rice faction and puts the issue of regime-change back on the administration's agenda. While that change of regime will, initially, be limited to southern Lebanon, where Hezbollah operates a de facto independent state, it will eventually –the neocons hope – extend to the whole of the country, toppleBashar al-Assad in Syria – and, eventually, spill over into Iran."
