Every time there is an election in the Middle East the sock-puppets-for-the-state (a.k.a. “mainstream media”) bloviate endlessly about what this might mean for “the peace process.” Huh? What? What peace process? For my entire life, all U.S. government meddling in the Middle East has done is to generate more and more conflict. It is an anti-peace process and always has been. If peace ever broke out in the Middle East, too many wealthy and powerful people in the U.S. and the Middle East would lose most or all of their political power and much of their wealth.
