Does Washington’s Imperial Arrogance in Gaza Know Any Limits?

The U.S. is now offering to operate a "war room" for Israel's invasion into Rafah

March 31, 2024 (EIRNS)—For six months, the Biden administration vetoed every UN Security Council resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, arguing they interfered with “negotiations.” Then on March 25, the U.S. chose to abstain on another UNSC ceasefire resolution, allowing it to be approved—only to turn around and declare that it was “non-binding,” and that the Israeli genocide could proceed unimpeded.

Now the U.S. has reportedly come up with “an outline” for how Israel should wage its threatened assault on Rafah, and has even proposed to operate a joint U.S.-Israel war room for the Rafah operation, to ensure that the genocide is carried out in the proper fashion. According to the Jerusalem Post, citing a report from the Kan broadcaster, Gen. Charles Q. Brown, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, has presented that outline to Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi. According to the report, Brown told Halevi that the U.S. did not want to see thousands of civilian casualties in Rafah. Kan further stated that the proposed outline included closing the Rafah border with Egypt and using technological surveillance such as cameras and sensors. In addition, the U.S. suggested that Rafah should be isolated from the rest of the Strip and that the IDF should carry out targeted operations in specific areas based on intelligence information.
