Israel is the one on the leash in the Iran-Israel crisis. Irately knows that they would not be successful in their raids into Iran without the US. So when the US say no war, that means no war.

What BS nonsense!! American imperialism? the U.S. does not rule distant territories by force. then U.S. has no empire as that would mean it was dominating and occupying and ruling distant lands by force. the U.S. has not expanded its borders nor its holdings over any nation. America intervenes in other nations affairs only if has been decreed by the un or NATO and then only does so legally and with a coalition.
A better question to ask is what countries haven't we helped. Almost everyone IE France, Germany, Russia and many others hate our country. They never repaid American for rescuing their sorry rear ends during WWII and helping to rebuild their countries.
Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60's when DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaulle said "I wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible."
Rusk responded, "Does that include those who are buried here?"
DeGaulle did not respond and you could have heard a pin drop.

Our country has aided every other country in the world at one time or another. We even help our enemies, when Iran had earthquakes a few years ago, we were there to help. When the tsunami hit we even helped out those people wearing Osama bin Laden t-shirts.

We contributed massively to the post WWII rebuilding effort in both Europe and Japan.

The US gives billions of dollars annually in aid (and not just to Israel for those Israel whiners) to other countries, provides humanitarian support, forgives the debt of other countries and lends troops in times of military conflict (which shouldn't be confused with invading another country, such as Iraq).

When in England, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of
'empire building' by George Bush.
He answered by saying,
"Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return."

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

Ike........

TODAY THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX RUNS THE USA GOVERNMENT........Ike warned us....WE DID NOT LISTEN.

Israel is our ally, but under no circumstances should we follow Israel into a war.

Unless our country is attacked, eh?

'tis an easy thing to make it 'look' like it is attacked (false flag operation).

Israel's version of CIA is Mossad. Their motto is, "by way of deception, we will make war".

Could be a possibility
