Military Drill "Proves" Israel Controls America

The USA and Israel had their largest military drill ever over the weekend, and the Huffington Post highlighted this with a classically biased picture:

Yeah an Israeli soldier walking around really illustrates the main point of the story doesn't it? Anyway, as I said in the title the Huffington Posters used this an opportunity not to only spew hate (which we're used to) but as proof that America is controlled by Israel:

Welcome to the Huffington Post.


  1. One interesting thing about this exercise and how the HP reaction to it has been, um, VARIED: a few months ago, the joint drill plans were first delayed and scaled back a great deal from the original structure. And a lot of posters were downright ecstatic about this, claiming in various and sundry ways that this showed the U.S. was disgusted with Israel and looking to distance themselves from Jerusalem. So the way they're reacting to the actual drill, all conspiratorial and pissed off, is quite telling. I'd say they should make up their minds, but honestly, it is hard to pick an avenue of thinking when you're clearly not activating your brain in the first place.

  2. Cognitive dissonance in action, Ben.
