Spot on Garry, the IMF and World Bank have been used as instruments of US financial domination since they were created, very successfully I might add. This will continue for as long as they can do it. I agree that the IMF should, as per that remit, lend lots to anyone against the US as the debt, invariably in $, will shackle them into the future. Even knowing this that these countries still want the money shows just how powerful the US and its $ still are. Very sad.
Our young French lad should acquaint himself with the difference between semitism and Zionism. You don't have to be Jewish to be the later but the Zionists sure do hide behind the former and conflate the meanings of the two words.
“I am a Zionist. You don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist,” current Democratic Presidential candidate, Joe Biden, said in April 2007, soon before he was chosen to be Barack Obama’s running mate in the 2008 elections.
Biden is, of course, correct, because Zionism is a political movement that is rooted in 20th-century nationalism and . Its use of religious dogmas is prompted by political expediency, not spirituality or faith.
Maybe he would accept that the Israeli (Zionist or not) lobby in the US effectively controls Congress with a significant number of important US citizens also being citizens of Israel as well as the US? When major donors are legally able to pump crazy amounts of money into the US political system, like Bloomberg's, a proud Jew, recent estimated near $1B, they garner serious political influence that they are not shy in exploiting.
Maybe he would also accept that throughout history it has been the victors that write the history and that making criticizing the analysis of that history a criminal offense inevitably raises suspicions that the history might not pass close examination using the underlying facts, even using facts not available when the history was written? Adding one party getting serious financial benefit from that history just adds to the sense that something might not be right. I could go on.
