I'd never heard of Mr. Miller before and I know nothing about him, but I am glad I saw this interview. He seems very smart, reasonable and rational,
but like a lot of people who are worried about the Zionists, or the Israeli right wing and their supporters around the world, he passes lightly over
the reason that these people are able to get your ordinary American oligarch to cooperate with them and champion their interests.
The reason is that a belligerant, expansionist Israel is a tool that can be used by a belligerant, expansionist America to aid in gaining control of
Middle Eastern oil reserves. If there were no oil in the Middle East, Israel, or something like it would be located , or created in the vicinity of
the oil resources to serve the same purpose Israel serves, i.e., to be the camel's nose, into the tent of the people who own the oil.
Focusing on "Zionists" is to stumble into a pitfall where it comes to changing US foreign policy. If I were advising Mr. Miller, whom I like, based on
this interview, I would say, "Drop the preoccupation with "Zionists" and concentrate on the effects of the military budget on the domestic economy.
Push for American energy independance."
An energy independant America will accord Israel's interests the effort they merit, and they do merit some effort, but no more, no less than
