Lou Dobbs: Not so smart when it comes to the Middle East
We Americans like to think we’re a pretty smart people, even when evidence to the contrary is overwhelming. And nowhere is that evidence more overwhelming than in the Middle East. History in the Middle East is everything, and we Americans seem to learn nothing from it.
Sort of. The US policy of arming Israel to be its proxy has been governmental policy for decades. The US is not clueless in the Middle East, rather the US is actively supporting the Lebanon invasion.
However, mainstream media coverage of the invasion has shifted noticeably in the past few days from Israel Can Do No Wrong to serious questioning of what’s going on.
