Grovelling to the White House

In the past, crawling to the Americans was almost compulsory for Tory and Labour leaders who would drone on and on about “partnership” and the “special relationship” to justify British imperialism’s slavish support of US power throughout the world. But Johnson has taken it to a new level in a bid to restore his government’s credibility in the White House.

Last week British envoys joined the Americans in a diplomatic offensive in Kiev to try and push their NATO allies into supporting more sanctions against Russia to prop-up the Ukrainian puppet regime. Now they’ve joined hands with the USA and Israel to support the continued Zionist occupation of Syria’s Golan Heights, which were captured during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.

The resolution reaffirmed that settlement construction and any other Israeli activities constitute a change in the demographic nature of the occupied Syrian Golan Heights. It called on Israel to resume peace talks and withdraw from the occupied Syrian Golan Heights in accordance with the border lines of 4th June1967.

At the UN General Assembly members overwhelmingly affirmed Syria’s sovereignty at a session last week in vote carried by 94 with 69 abstentions.

Israel was supported by just seven other states: the USA, the UK, Australia, Canada and three tiny Pacific island states – the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia and Palau – that are little more than American protectorates.
