Seems to me that military contractors, oil companies and the Israeli lobby have much more clout than the people. Both Republican and Democratic politicians use the "national security" argument for remaining engaged in Middle East problems.

I wonder if horses and blacksmiths thought the same way about automobiles? Were Sears and Penny"s executives worried about Walmart? Could Walmart’s success be eclipsed by Amazon?

Never underestimate the power of an idea to create change, especially if it effects peoples lives, wallets or purses. smile

And yes, I agree with the author. Do you?

One word answer:

ISRAEL

Any politician bold enough to suggest Israel should go it alone would be decimated by the Israel Lobby and by sappy Evangelicals.
