I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Barry

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Vietnam veteran and former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, a politician with an independent streak who values diplomacy and international cooperation, has been picked by President Obama to lead the Pentagon. This is a cause for celebration.

Any political leader in Washington that has made enemies out of Neocons is definitely one of the good guys. It takes guts to stand up to these bullies who exploit the collective trauma of the Jewish people to justify the criminal and counter-productive policies of the current Israeli government.

The neocons are going ballistic about Hagel’s nomination, knowing that their dream of starting a world war against the forces of radical Islam will end in ashes if sanity is restored in the Pentagon. But they are firing blanks in their repulsive attacks on Hagel. People who resort to name-calling to win arguments have reached the end of the line.

The biggest complaint neocons have of Hagel is that he had the audacity to tell the truth about the power and behaviour of the Israel Lobby. In 2008, Hagel said, “The Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here.”

Hagel is far from alone in his description of the Israel Lobby. AIPAC is usually picked out as the most anti-American lobby in Washington. It spies on U.S. officials and politicians. Anybody that defends AIPAC is by definition a traitor against America. In September, the fierce truth-teller MJ Rosenberg tweeted, “Neocons are traitors.”

Why else do the Neocons hate Hagel? He thinks it is smarter to talk to a nation rather than annihilating it. What a radical thought.

Neocons think that talking to the other side is what weak men and nations do. But psychologists and true warriors disagree. As Dutch-American psychoanalyst Joost A. M. Meerloo wrote in his book, Conversation and Communication, “Let us talk now, so that we do not become mad animals!”

There is nothing weak about engaging in diplomacy. It takes great psychological strength and inner spiritual maturity to listen to the other side’s perspective as opposed to rigidly remaining in your truth-proof fortress and constantly assuming the worst of the other.

Reuel L. Howe, a professor of pastoral theology at Philadelphia Divinity School and the Protestant Episcopal Theological Seminary in Virginia, explained the value and importance of dialogue in his book, “The Miracle of Dialogue.” Howe wrote:

Taking the course of diplomacy over war is more important than ever. President Obama’s decision to nominate Hagel for Secretary of Defense is a sign that the Pentagon is getting the insanity of the neocons totally out of its system.
