Gaza War Isn’t On the Other Side of the World: The U.S. is Right in the Middle

Many Americans believe that the Israel-Hamas war is on the other side of the world. But the U.S. is actually right in the middle of the war.

Specifically, the U.S. is seeking a ship to move “3,000-odd tons of ammunition” to Israel.

Supplying huge amounts of arms to one of side of a conflict means the U.S. is fighting for that side, because re-supply is an integral part of war.

And, as Phyllis Bennis notes that the U.S. is providing alot more than just ammunition:

“Israel’s lethal attack … on the Gaza Strip could not have happened without the active military support of the United States,” charged Bennis, detailing the types of weapons — such as F-16 fighter planes and Apache attack helicopters — and the amount of military aid — $3 billion a year — Israel receives from Washington.

Of course, Congress has said Israel can do anything it wants, and America will support it.

The U.S. is now fighting 3 wars simultaneously: Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine.
