US, Israel benefit from violence in Iraq

Press TV:

The current situation is also being portrayed by many as a sectarian struggle.

But then again, who benefits from an unstable and disunited Iraq?

Lawrence Davidson, professor of West Chester University:

Well, who benefits from it is the United States benefits from it and the Israelis benefit from it and the American political right wing benefits from it because they can point a finger at Obama and say, you see, you withdrew from the country and you left it to have civil war.

But in fact, the country went into a potential civil war mode when the Americans came in and invaded.

So it is very difficult for the Americans to really put distance between themselves and whatever consequences there are now in Iraq, but in terms of benefit, look for the American Republican right wingers to make an issue of this during the presidential campaign.

Colonial powers have a long history of fomenting civil wars when they militarily leave a colony.

It is very obvious that Israel is the main beneficiary of this on going conflict in Iraq.

Samething with Lybia. The USA and Israel likes to portrait these countries as backwards, underdeveloped. The last thing they want is to any Arab country to be prosperous and developed.

By keeping these countries under constant conflicts and internal wars, they will never be able to be independent and prosperous. When Israel and the USA see some sign of progress or development in the Arab world, they go there and start a conflict to make sure that the Arabs are sent back to their caves.
