David Broder is possibly the most prestigious journalist in the US. ‘Dean of the Washington Press Corps’, he’s a Pulitzer Prize winner and the recipient of countless awards and honourary degrees. He’s also a hypocrite and a sociopath.
A hypocrite because he’s been taking fellow journalists to task for accepting fees over and above their salaries, suggesting, correctly, needless to say, that this impairs theire objectivity. ‘Shape up guys’. However, shortly afterwards he was outed as doing exactly the same thing himself, incognito, and following up by writing puff pieces for his benefactors.
I say he’s also a sociopath because he…. Well, let the man himself explain. “The economic situation in America is presenting a daunting situation that could prevent President Barack Obama from storming back to win a second term in 2012."
And his solution?
Start a war with Iran!
“With strong Republican support in Congress for challenging Iran's ambition to become a nuclear power, he can spend much of 2011 and 2012 orchestrating a showdown with the mullahs. This will help him politically because the opposition party will be urging him on. And as tensions rise and we accelerate preparations for war, the economy will improve.”
What a swell idea! After all, look how well the US is doing with its current wars. A third one would be the icing on the cake.
But forget about the economy. This creature thinks it’s fine to start a conflagration with the strongest power in the Middle East, in the full knowledge of the human and material cost incurred by the Iraq and Afghanistan adventures. There’s also the little matter of its being criminal and immoral.
You know, the more I see the harder I find it to take a benign view of what top Jews in the US are doing. It seems clearer than ever that for many if not most their first loyalty is to Israel, and that to them the cost to America in blood and treasure is immaterial.
