I will address this to hophmi:
Misdirecting the blame..or at least spreading it around (to Obama, Bush/Cheney, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia) so that the real prime movers (Jews) are invisible in the mix, is the job of the media and israel's hundreds of internet shills...like hophmi..
According to (Israel's) Haaretz correspondent Aluf Benn writing on the eve of the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, Sharon and his cohorts "envision a domino effect, with the fall of Saddam Hussein followed by that of Israel's other enemies: Arafat, Hassan Nasrallah, Bashar Assad, the ayatollah in Iran and maybe even Muhammar Gadaffi." By presenting the US with facts-on-the-ground and using its US lobby, Israel would keep itself at the heart of American plans for the Middle East.
The ouster of Assad could represent an "opportunity for us." -Michael Oren, Israel's ambassador to the U.S. -Christian Science Monitor 10/25/11
“One can only hope that we turn the region into a cauldron, and faster, please, That’s our mission..." -Jewish Neocon Michael Ledeen 2002
"Western powers should guide enemies to stalemate by helping whichever side is losing, so as to prolong the conflict.” -Jewish NeoCon Daniel Pipes in National Review 4/12/13
"Let them both bleed, hemorrhage to death: that's the strategic thinking here." -Alon Pinkas (Former Israeli Consul general)
This is a very abbreviated list and there are even more damning statements I could add here...but I believe they are all Jews.
