I completely agree with your assessment of the situation, and quite frankly, I am both mildly surprised, and greatly encouraged, that a person in the IK such as yourself has come to these conclusions.
I would also like to say that, no matter what the US mainstream media says, the vast majority of US citizens emphatically do NOT agree with the Obama Administration's position on the Middle East, nor do we agree in any way with the lunatic Marxists protesting in the "Occupy Wall Street" protests.
Many (I pray that most), like myself, are fearful that we are being "set up" by these events, both here and abroad.
I hope you don't mind, but I quoted your post on my own blog, as an example of someone in the UK that sees the truth.
It is very accurate, eloquent, and I feel that others here in the US need to see it, and understand that even in the UK, others share our views that the US, the Middle East, Israel, and Europe are being manipulated toward chaos.
Thank you very much for your words, and your observations.
