This week Israelis Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came to Washington to give a speech to both houses of Congress. I would sum it up in one word: disgusting.

For a head of state to visit a nations capital without visiting that head of state is disrespectful. I don't care who the president of either country is. Grant it Obama is no friend of Israel, but he is still our leader. Secondly when Prime Minister Netanyahu walked onto the house floor, the chamber erupted in cheers never seen in that building. Not even our own Medal of Honor recipients received such an applause. And the members were reaching out to touch Netanyahu as if he was Christ himself. It was like The House of Representatives were simultaneously having orgasms for this foreign politician. Talk radio was no better. You thought Sean Hannity was going to call Netanyahu a dreamboat and ask him on a date. 
Of course Netanyahu was rattling the saber for war against Iran, and Congress was eating it up. Poor Bibi couldn't finish a sentence before the chamber gave him another standing ovation. Watching that speech you would think congress was going to have their sons enlist and fight Iran. Nowhere in the speech did Netanyahu said that if Iran attacked Israel,that the Iraeli Defense Forces and the Mossad would wipe Iran off the face of the earth, or Israel will fight hand in hand with US forces. The prime minister might have said that during one of many standing ovations. That's what we need, more occupation of a Middle East nation. I guess Iraq and Afghanistan were not enough. This means more troops, more deployments more money. Obama already gutted the military and our southern border is unguarded.

Now why would we fight Iran on the behalf of Israel. Israel has no natural resources, no industry to speak of and a small trading partner. We have no military in Israel despite its prime location. We give Israel billions annually in aid despite a multi trillion dollar debt. And what has Israel done for the U.S? In 1967 Israel attacked a US Navy ship to get us involved in the war with Egypt. Also Jonathan Pollard gave damaging secrets to Israel, and Israel lobbied heavily to get Pollard's punishment reduced. But during all the crisis' the U.S. endured, Israel has never stepped up. When the USS Cole was attacked, September 11th, earthquakes, forest fires, Katrina and Sandy, Israel never called to help. 

And finally all day everyday I hear, "I stand with Israel." And,  "there is no greater ally of Israel than the United States." But I never heard Jews say, "I stand with the U.S." Or the U.S. has no greater ally than Israel."

An open letter to Ayman Mohyeldin

Re: Chris Kyle

Mr. Mohyeldin:

Recently on the "Morning Joe" show on the MSNBC network,  you said the following on former Chief Petty Officer Chris Kyle:

-A lot of his stories when he was back home in Texas, a lot of his own personal opinions about what he was doing in Iraq, how he viewed Iraqis. Some of what people have described as his racist tendencies towards Iraqis and Muslims when he was going on some of these, you know, killing sprees in Iraq on assignment. 

-When he was involved in his -- on assignments in terms of what he was doing. A lot of the description that has come out from his book and some of the terminology that he has used, people have described as racist. 

Sir, what ever your feelings on the War on Terror, the US Navy, or Chief Kyle personally, you couldn't be more wrong calling Chief Kyle racist and his actions on the battlefield racist. You don't like the fact that Kyle killed people of Middle Eastern decent, and you playing to your audience, threw out the "R-word." Calling someone or something racist is when one on the left has no more argument.  It's no wonder why your network, MSNBC is hemorrhaging viewers.  If you ever served in battle, you learn that each side dehumanizes the enemy. This has been going on since before the colonists decided to fight the British. Chief Kyle didn't go on a killing spree, he was defeating the enemy with precision. He was doing his job sir.  And doing it very well. You also mentioned that Chief Kyle was very right of center. I'm sorry that Chief Kyle isn't a Manhattan progressive, and a big supporter of gay rights, taxing the rich, social spending, Affirmative Action, and every other failed program and idea that brought this once great nation to the brink of collapse.  

As for accomplishing something, Kyle finished SEAL training. Something only the real 1% can do. He achieved the rank of Chief Petty Officer in less than 10 years, another remarkable achievement. Instead of breaking up his family like military service has done to literally tens of thousands of families, he left the service. He still helped his fellow servicemen by taking them out shooting to help cope with their issues. Even though he wasn't fighting in battle, Chris Kyle still died a hero. Thousands of his fellow Texans lined the streets to pay their respects when he was transported to Cowboy Stadium for his funeral. 
As for you, nobody knows who you are. You work for a network that nobody watches. People like me watch it because it's like The Onion for television. You think you are being pithy calling Chief Kyle a racist like every other MSNBC personality does. I figured it out. People like Chris Kyle has machismo, and that's a threat to you. You could never be a Chris Kyle, R. Lee Ermey, or Clint Eastwood. You want to be, but you can't, so you and your colleagues, can only trash a man like Kyle. Keep trashing people like Chief Kyle. It worked so well for people like Michael Moore. 

If you want to retort or debate me on your words or this letter, please e-mail me through Political Cesspool host James Edwards at
