I think Abby Martin is smart and spot on when it comes to the neocon wars in the Middle East. She is against the wars of choice that are bankrupting America. She hates all the suffering USA created around the world through the neocon wars. But I think she is also naive as well. She thinks Japan should not militarize itself in order to defend itself from North Korea and China. She was interviewing Oliver stone, and stone said that USA had a chance to get rid of its nukes along with Russia after the Cold War and USA should have gotten rid of the nukes it had. Abby didn't disagree with him on that. Imagine a world in which only despotic nations like North Korea had nukes... usa would be nuked for sure... so she is naive on that. On the Palestine/Israel issue she supports Palestine and ending the occupation of Palestine. I believe Palestinians have legitimate grievances, like the checkpoints which take hours to go through, and the Israeli control of all water and energy resources in gaza and West Bank. I also think Israel has the obligation and right to defend itself from rocket attacks because Israel can't let its civilians die. If Cuba was shooting rockets into Florida, USA would absolutely destroy all of Cuba. But I also think like this; Americans act like Palestinians are all evil antisemites when they oppose their own subjugation and occupation of their land, the founding fathers of the usa thought they had the right to revolt against a 2 percent tax on tea. Nowadays we give 10 million dollars a day to Israel. The colonial Americans had more guts and balls than any of the USA politicians of today lol.
