It was not my perspective to focus on Israel related resolutions. There are lots of US vetoes in regards to issues in South Africa or Central/South
I could argue that Israel's situation has been the world's major concern for years with the largest list of resolutions hence the largest number of
American vetoes but it's not what I find interesting in your OP.
Yes, we may disagree in some minor points. The preventive war was unjust, illegal and motivated by forged facts and lies. The Zionist lobby was one of
the side partners not the main one from my understanding but there is still a lot to discover and I want to be cautious. For now and without going
into details, I believe the war was waged to push for American hegemony against Russia/China mainly. Of course, it was not the American citizens
interest and many Americans have realised that by now.
The USA gained the adhesion of their domestic opinion for the Iraq war through big time propaganda but failed badly at the world's stage. The war
started anyway despite a strong world public opinion disaproval and caused an immense damage to the USA credit, once viewed as a supporter of Justice
and Liberty, I'll add Freedom and that they were world leaders.
G.W. Bush legacy is not his policies but the damage he has done to the USA image in the world. The PTB don't want to listen to or go in the interest
of the public opinions but they want to shape them to their interests. We do agree on that, right ? A lesson from the past is that even a king with
almost absolute power can have his head cut off by not listening to the complaints of the people. The threat is so bad, it takes a Obama to try and
restore it. This alone shows how seriously the threat is acknowledged.
By arousing confidence and trust in their noble and unselfish goals coupled with supreme military power, the USA have been able for more than half a
century to push their agenda encountering lowered resistance like France and Great Britain have done in the past. This time is over.
The disastrous loss of the world's public opinion battle is the reason for the unleashed furor and political retaliation against France. It was a
serious defeat and deserved a serious response. It shows how important it is in their eyes to have the approval of the world despite what they say and
the fact that we are conditionned to believe our opinion makes no difference. It makes a difference, it's the first step leading to action and
