I hope your fighting ability would be better than your ability to form a sentence. I doubt they would let short bus riders enlist.

Yes Israel has Nuclear Warheads. These weapons can produce heat greater than the Sun, burn the meat off your bones before they fall, produce hurricane force winds as the air rushes in to fill the vacuum because the air has been burned up, and pulverize everything in the blast area. The Arab Nations have to be crazy to provoke Israel, and if it wasn't for the US they would have already used them.

Yes they are. I like the Israelis. You might classisfy them as the US Eastern front. They are still everything the US use to be before we started producing people like you.

Hmmmm I didn't remember the US was a government based on one religion that is heavily into apartheid in the 21st century.

I do remember when you could ride planes and never think of terrorists of the USA. I do remember not paying nearly as many taxes for security as after 9/11.

I do remember not wanting to invade Iraq over bullship weapons of mass destruction.

I do remember thinking the US secretly giving Israel many nukes was a VERY bad idea for many many reasons. I could go on BUT --

Unlike Hickabilly, I don't take pride in being dumb and I know people have studied this much more than I so I'll let the TWO DOCTORS explain their reasoning in their own words.

Again any ACTUAL rebuttals.

THE ISRAEL LOBBY AND U.S. FOREIGN POLICY
John J. Mearsheimer

THE ISRAEL LOBBY AND U.S. FOREIGN POLICY
The U.S. national interest should be the primary object of American foreign
policy. For the past several decades, however, and especially since the Six Day War in 1967, the centerpiece of U.S. Middle East policy has been its relationship
with Israel. The combination of unwavering U.S. support for Israel and the
related effort to spread democracy throughout the region has inflamed Arab and
Islamic opinion and jeopardized U.S. security.
This situation has no equal in American political history. Why has the United
States been willing to set aside its own security in order to advance the intere
sts of another state? One might assume that the bond between the two countries is
based on shared strategic interests or compelling moral imperatives. As we
show below, however, neither of those explanations can account for the
remarkable level of material and diplomatic support that the United States
provides to Israel.
Instead, the overall thrust of U.S. policy in the region is due almost entirely
to U.S. domestic politics, and especially to the activities of the “Israel Lobby.”
Other special interest groups have managed to skew U.S. foreign policy in directions
they favored, but no lobby has managed to divert U.S. foreign policy as far from
what the American national interest would otherwise suggest, while
simultaneously convincing Americans that U.S. and Israeli interests are
essentially identical.1
In the pages that follow, we describe how the Lobby has accomplished this feat,
and how its activities have shaped America’s actions in this critical region.
Given the strategic importance of the Middle East and its potential impact on
others, both Americans and non&#8208;Americans need to understand and address the
Lobby’s influence on U.S. policy.
Some readers will find this analysis disturbing, but the facts recounted here are not in serious dispute among scholars. Indeed, our account relies heavily on the
work of Israeli scholars and journalists, who deserve great credit for shedding
light on these issues.
THE GREAT BENEFACTOR
Since the October War in 1973, Washington has provided Israel with a level of
support dwarfing the amounts provided to any other state. It has been the
largest annual recipient of direct U.S. economic and military assistance since 1976
and the largest total recipient since World War II. Total direct U.S. aid to Israel
amounts to well over $140 billion in 2003 dollars.2 Israel receives about $3 billion
in direct foreign assistance each year, which is roughly one&#8208;fifth of America’s
foreign aid budget. In per capita terms, the United States gives each Israeli a
direct subsidy worth about $500 per year.
3 This largesse is especially striking
when one realizes that Israel is now a wealthy industrial state with a per capita
income roughly equal to South Korea or Spain.4 ....
....
This extraordinary generosity might be understandable if Israel were a vital
strategic asset or if there were a compelling moral case for sustained U.S.
backing. But neither rationale is convincing.
A STRATEGIC LIABILITY ..... MUCH MORE ...

There you go. Do the names cause you to lose sleep or are you just a busy body with noting to say??? Perhaps you change your story to different names. Who really knows why many names bother you? What would you say if everyone posted under the same name?? Boi that would really confuse you. You would probably be carted off to a mental facility. Do you like the name Rebecca?
