If that's your view, you need your eyes checked.The point IS: I viewed Israel's actions upon The USS Liberty SPYING as a Military Strategy that I believe any Nation would take under the circumstances.
It was an American invasion upon Israel's safety, security, and could have led to Israel's Military Strategy being compromised. I view it as America held a knife to Israel's throat and left Israel no choice.
Gratitude? Perhaps they should have thanked The US for possibly risking Israel's survival/demise, or at least having the possibility for compromising it.
Israel is waring with THREE Arab Nations and America is "recording" their Military Strategy and Intel!
No Nation would be at ease with that. What if that Classified Information leaked, or was stolen ... As it so often is!
After all, didn't The American Government act foolishly, UNWISE when it knowingly employed and intrusted our Nuclear Program to a known Communist, Klaus Fuchs, ergo "allowing" him to give Classified, Top Secret Information to The Soviets?
Talk about being an idiot. And Israel knowing America's stupidity or poor judgement or lack of regarding being Fuched, should have THEN intrusted The US with ITS Military Intel, Secrets and Strategies during A War?
All is fair in War and War-Time.
PS Why do you think Israel's MOSSAD is of the Highest Order among The Intel Communities? Probably The Best.
The deaths of 500K Americans saved the rest of European jewry, we paid for Israel's existence in blood. After Russians jews were almost 100% responsible for the creation of the Soviet Union, communism, the subjugation of half of Europe and tens of millions of death.
You must be so proud.
