Andrew Sullivan: You Know, I'm Thinking We Should Invade Israel

Well, I assume it's Andrew Sullivan, I mean you can never be too sure who is writing over there but this level of crazy seems right up Sully's lane so it's a safe bet it's him.

You see, St. Heartache is sick of the whole gosh darn mess over there so it's time to drop in some NATO troops (that's US in reality for those scoring at home) and impose a solution on those tiresome Israelis and Palestinians. (safe link to Commentary's website)

My own view is moving toward supporting a direct American military imposition of a two-state solution, with NATO troops on the borders of the new states of Palestine and Israel. I'm sick of having a great power like the US being dictated to in the conduct of its own foreign policy by an ally that provides almost no real benefit to the US, and more and more costs.

How exactly is the US having its foreign policy dictated to it by Israel? What are they going to do cut off their military aid to us and leave us to fend for ourselves in a part of the world where all our neighbors have tried to wipe us off the map on more than one occasion?

Oh wait, that's not an accurate portrayal of the US-Israeli power relationship.

Aside from the sheer lunacy of imposing borders on a sovereign democracy, which also happens to be a close ally, what in Sullivan's increasingly deranged mind makes him think the prospect of US soldiers fighting to keep Hamas, Hezbollah and the rest from attacking Israel is going to work? Does he really think these groups are just going to turn over their weapons to us or let us confiscate them without a fight?

You could go on for hours about why this is a nonsensical idea and the unending reasons why it wouldn't work.

The other day Sullivan actually wrote (safe link to the Google cache) "try thinking rather than just emoting. Which is easier said than done when blogging in real time."

All I can say to that is, try harder Andrew. Try harder.

On the upside, no one takes this lunatic seriously anymore. Unfortunately, this idiocy isn't simply the product of Andrew's feavered brain, it's something that's been floating around on the left for awhile. Below the fold, Samantha "Hillary Is A Monster" Power, now a member of Obama's NSC staff trotted it out back in 2002.
