The notion that we could just waltz in and inject democracy into an extremely complicated, devout and ancient culture smacked-still smacks-of neocolonialist legerdemain. The fact that a great many Jewish neoconservatives — people like Joe Lieberman and the crowd over at Commentary — plumped for this war, and now for an even more foolish assault on Iran, raised the question of divided loyalties: using U.S. military power, U.S. lives and money, to make the world safe for Israel. And then there is the question-made manifest by the no-bid contracts offered U.S. oil companies by the Iraqis-of two oil executives, Bush and Cheney, securing a new source of business for their Texas buddies.
What does that say for all of the non-Jewish support for the war in Iraq, as well as a tougher line on Iran?
UPDATE: This comes from the comment section of the post, on Time‘s Swampland blog:
And I’m very glad that people (particularly Jewish commentators) are starting to speak openly about the fact that the neocons’ loyalties might be a bit conflicted.
You’ve officially given cover to anti-Semites everywhere, Joe. I hope you’re proud of yourself.
