“As he has made clear throughout his career and throughout this campaign, Barack Obama has a fundamental commitment to a strong U.S.-Israel relationship … As president, he will ensure that Israel can defend itself from every threat it faces, stand with Israel in its quest for a secure peace with its neighbors, and use all elements of American power to end Iran’s illicit nuclear program. >>>>>
This article is extremely biased as Iran doesn’t have an “illicit nuclear program.” This sounds like projection of Israel’s position on its nuclear arsenal; which by virtually all standards of other nations outside of the U.S. and Israel, is illicit. In the very same paragraph, the Obama camp seems to back off of Israel by noting that the U.S. and Israel are inseparable, regardless of deeds. This is pretty ironic, and not very democratic from a nation that places rule of law above any other alliance, legitimate or corrupt.
By the very function of a sovereign nation, the U.S. should place the legitimate interests of its own country before the illegitimate interests of another; or based on a relationship with another.
