10. Director of Policy Planning at the State Department – Richard Haass
Is it the same Richard N Haass who is the current CFR head?
14. Under Secretary for Arms Control – David Wurmser
David is Swiss-American, so is he thrice-a-citizen of another country?

The BBC has its many flaws but this particular Panorama episode was pretty good. The wife, Meyrav Wurmser, admitted to them popping champagne after watching Saddam's statue pulled down.

“In the absence of a tangible threat to our national security, Americans naturally retreat into isolationism. As a result, they(Neocons) have engaged in a consistent pattern of threat inflation or you can call it fear mongering. For Neocons, a new Hitler is always around the corner and we must be in a permanent state of mobilization.”

Permanent state of mobilization? At what or whose cost? Come to think of it, how many times have heard in the media that Israel is about to be blown off the face of the earth?

Wow informative videos. As I've proudly stated before I protested against the war in Iraq but the BBC doc. shows I didn't know at the time who/what we were really protesting against.

The BBC documentary was amazing because the Jewish neo-cons wouldn't allow such public, almost antagonistic questioning of their policies from an outsider today. It's further evidence of how the journalist's former position as challengers to authority has been disintegrated.

So true. I don't think something that good could come out of the BBC now. I watched another one on Soleimani that i'll post in the Iran thread and it was plain weird to watch. I was impressed by the curly-haired protest leader, its like they were looking at 2011-2012 right there. The pro-war rallies at the end gave me some food for thought.

"Let’s be realistic: Trump had to pay Israel something in exchange for having deprived her of WW3, at least temporarily. He is certainly aware that, in the last 70 years, no U.S. president unfriendly to Israel has won a second term, and that some of them have been forcibly replaced by their Zionist vice-president (since Lyndon Johnson, this seems to have become the main purpose of the vice-president). By his recent pro-Israel decrees, he gained the gratitude of Netanyahu and the support of Sheldon Adelson for a second term. But that was not enough, it seems. With his recent strike against Iran’s military leadership, he may have finally caved in their most pressing demand. By doing so, he may have actually exhausted his usefulness for Israel, and at the same time, lost the support of a crucial part of his voters. If he loses in 2020, he will retire with his well-deserved Cyrus medal—and an Ahasuerus medal too."- Laurent Guyenot
While I do enjoy reading Mr. Guyenot’s pieces, I don’t think Trump “has exhausted his usefulness for Israel”. I maintain my belief that he’ll get a second term. What this excerpt has made me think is that, and as crazy as it may seem, we just might see Israel “achieve sovereignty” in the next 4yrs
Are those actual medal names? Ironic
He lost me on the ‘Ahasuerus medal’ aswell but when I thought it over, I figured he meant that Trump will retire with an Ahasuerus medal when he engages Iran in a war and the country is thoroughly destroyed. That way, he will have taken after King Ahasuerus/Xerxes in the biblical story of Queen Esther who had the evil Haman hanged after plotting to kill all the Jews.

it will be a real miracle for him to leave office (after 8yrs) without taking the country to war.
