I think the old Arab-baiting war-monger is on to something here.
True enough, America's violations of international law in the current attack on Syria are every bit as vile and repugnant as Israel's last war on Gaza.
So what is Allan's point?
That the US and Israel are equally guilty of outrageous war crimes and crimes against humanity?
No, I think he wants to foreground the distinction between mentor and mentored, enabled and enabler.
America has been enabling Israel's war crimes for over fifty years.
On the other hand, America does not need Israel to enable American war crimes.
There's a difference.
