Pro-Israeli American neocons, who promoted the invasion of Iraq and the toppling of the Assad regime, may well think that Israel is the prime strategic beneficiary of the breakup of Iraq and Syria. However, the reality is that Israel is now faced with the spectre of horrendous and unending blowback over the long term at the more decisive grand strategic level of conflict.
As the Zionist government of Israel continues to meddle in US internal matters, massing its legions of unregistered agents against the Iran treaty — most of these domestic agents bribed by payments (at a time when the US taxpayer funds 20% of the Israeli government budget) and all taking direction from this foreign power, it is helpful to remember the USS Liberty.
In a commemorative article marking the 48th anniversary of this most deliberate war crime, we learn that the Zionists intended to sink the ship and leave no witnesses but ran out of ammunition and were poor shots — only 1 of 5 torpedoes hit the ship.
We also learn that they jammed the distress frequencies as well as the tactical frequencies. Jamming distress frequencies is a violation of international law.
