#18 - Main news thread - conflicts, terrorism, crisis from around the globe - Page 6 Goodyear%20closed

shame on Zerohedge. spit.
this is geopolitic driven unilateralist/western sabotage and economic terrorism.
This is a policy driven assault.

You think if US sanction/blackmail can force a global corp like French energy giant Total
to give up it's holding and 50% share of the largest gas reserve on Earth off the coast of Iran
that they cannot do EXACTLY the same...
and force a podunck tire plant in Venezuela to 'shutter' and effect more misery and more blackmail against another 'enemy government'???

This is a bullshit article/hit piece scapegoating 'socialism' as a convenient whipping boy
and making a 'hero' out of Goodyear cuz it 'tried so hard' but 'finally lost the battle' against the boogie man.
utter bullshit.

More supples from Israel found in Daraa. By now it should be clear that so called "rebels" wouldn't be able to survive more than a few months without huge support from abroad. Here goes "authentic revolution" rhetoric down the drain...

Sen. Rand Paul is blocking US military aid to Israel
Nov 27, 2018


Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is blocking U.S. military aid to Israel.

Paul, who has previously called to cut defense assistance to Israel, recently put a hold on the U.S.-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018, which codifies into law the $38 billion defense aid package for Israel over 10 years that was negotiated in the final days of the Obama administration.

A hold is a parliamentary procedure that allows senators to prevent a motion from reaching a floor vote.

Paul, a presidential candidate in 2016, alienated pro-Israel Republicans almost as soon as he became a senator in 2011, when he embraced his congressman father’s longtime call to cut defense assistance to Israel. The younger Paul later backtracked, saying he regarded Israel as a close ally, and would cut assistance only once it was clear the country was self-sufficient in its defense needs.

Rand Paul: Aid to Israel should be ‘limited in time and scope’
Nov 28, 2018


Sen. Rand Paul acknowledged that he had placed a hold on major funding legislation for Israel, saying he wanted time limits on assistance to the Jewish state.

The Kentucky Republican also said he wanted cuts in aid to countries he says are hostile to the United States.

“While I’m not for foreign aid in general, if we are going to send aid to Israel it should be limited in time and scope so we aren’t doing it forever, and it should be paid for by cutting the aid to people who hate Israel and America,” Paul’s office said in an statement emailed Tuesday to the media.

Paul said he planned to introduce an amendment to the legislation, the United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018, in coming days. The bill codifies into law the $38 billion defense aid package for Israel over 10 years that was negotiated in the final days of the Obama administration.

The Washington Free Beacon first reported Paul’s hold, a parliamentary procedure that allows senators to prevent a motion from reaching a floor vote, and which usually is anonymous. The hold has been countered vigorously by major pro-Israel groups, including the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and Christians United for Israel, through online ads and action alerts to membership. CUFI has specifically targeted Paul through actions in Kentucky, including ads in newspapers there.

In his statement, Paul blamed AIPAC and other unnamed pro-Israel groups for not meeting his demands.

“Each time I’ve tried to stop giving aid to enemies of the U.S. and Israel, I have been thwarted. Often by groups that claim they are pro-Israel,” he said. “Why would supposedly pro-Israel groups oppose my legislation to end aid to the Palestinian Liberation Organization? Maybe it’s because they fear any debate on anyone’s foreign aid threatens a broader debate on whether we should be borrowing from foreign countries simply to send the money to other foreign countries."

Paul's position is not one of wholesale support for Israel.

I stand corrected it seems Paul just wants to cut off all foreign aid can't knock that as it's not biased and he called out AIPAC.
