Seriously, what has Israel given the US? All they do is take our money and military weapons....what does the US get in return? This is a serious question, I do not know the answer.

It seems like the only thing they have done lately is move the US closer to another war in the Middle East.

As for the guy nominated, isn't he a republican? I haven't read too much about him yet.

Israel is our frirnd & ally. They are our eyes & ears in the middk east against the evil thrests of the radical Muslim
nations. They promote freedom & democracy over tyranny. Even though Obama has changed our directions towards socialism & tyranny, they are a vital partner until we totally transform to a tyranical statest government.

We have a whole network of spies and informants for that We have the CIA and NSA. Promote freedom and Democracy over tyranny? Is this the 50's and 60's again with the communism domino effect?

I understand being an ally and friend...but these tribes and people and countries have been fighting against each other for thousands of years....Nothing we do will stop that! I firmly believe that. They are at constant war against each other. I think we waste a lot of resources over there that we could use here.

Oh well, I was just curious about how everyone is so into Israel right now, and how big a deal some people try to make it.

You also have to realize that the Obama administration is supportive of radical islamic nations, bows to their leaders, supports Palestine over Israel, Speaks to Muslim nations and tells them we are friends, then refuses to go visit Israel. Obama hates America and is going to display that in full force the next four years!

Yes, Professor you are correct! There is much we can learn from Israel. We should dump Obamacare for the Israeli Health Care System.

Health care in Israel is universal and participation in a medical insurance plan is compulsory. Health care coverage is administered by a small number of organizations, with funding from the government. All Israeli citizens are entitled to the same Uniform Benefits Package, regardless of which organization they are a member of, and treatment under this package is government-funded for all citizens regardless of their financial means. Additional coverage for non-essential treatments can be arranged for a fee, which is generally shared between a citizen and their employer. Generally, health care in Israel is of high-quality and is delivered in an efficient and effective manner. Partly as a result of this, at an overall 82 years, Israelis enjoy the fourth-longest life expectancy in the world as of 2012.

We heard the same rhetoric 3-5 years ago when Pres Obama first ran and the. Elected to be President....and nothing said them came true...in fact, the wars are coming to an end, soldiers coming back home, Bin Laden-dead, Khadaffi-Dead, unemployment down, stock market up....an plenty of other stuff....do a guy who hates america and is he'll bent on destroying our way of life....he sure is messing that up by fixing everything the GOP sabotagers did!

But I know you won't be able to see past any of that and still say that Obama is destroying america. Oh well.

I guess if you think 8% unemployment is good and the welfare state had expanded to unbelievable proportions. Oh yeah, not to mention the 16 trillion dollar deficit Obama created so far are accomplishments in your eyes.

Hagel must be 100% pro Israel because Israel has done much for America. Just to name one thing Israel done for the USA and the world they brought WWII to end --atomic bomb--Einstein, Teller and Oppenheimer. There are also many others things that the Jews have done for the world and the USA--Fleming insulin, Salkin and Sabin polio vaccine et al.

The 16 trillion isn't his....the two wars for 10 years put that money up....and the 8% unemployment is lower then the 12-15% rate that Bush had us going in....is everything great? Absolutely not...but all I see from a few guys on here is how Obama is going to kill the US and how he is going to destroy the US and its way of life....yet not 1 thing that they say has come true..., has welfare increased? Yes, because companies keep laying off people and sending jobs over seas...and as Romney stated, the government doesn't create jobs....now tht the election is over, Mayberry the corporations can start to spend a little of that tax free money they have in the US and hire some people.

I am not sure where you get your figures? You have a right to your own opinion, but not your own facts comes to mind. If you do some research on unemployment figures, you'll see it is much worse than the Obama team states. Plus, 47M on Food Stamps?? Yikes... Plus, we are definately in the danger zone debt & spending wise. That's just reality. Obama does not seem to show any concern with his spending plans either. That troubles me. As ugly as this sounds, America really was in better shape overall with Bush. That fact should scare you for sure. Well, have a great day...

I was curious so I asked. So you believe $17T in debt and a plan to add $1T/yr is better? 47M on Food Stamps is better? Our tax dollars off-setting the high cost of Solar & Wind Power so we can then still pay $22mw instead of $8mw? It's good that the Navy is being forced to buy $32/gal fule for ships as opposed to $3.50/gal? Knowing that your children & grand children are stuck with paying off our debt is better?

I am not argueing with you here, I am just surprised you accept all the above as better.

Obama is giving 20 F-16's (modern day that we use) and tanks to the Muslim brotherhood running Egypt these days -- yes, I said giving not selling. And this is helping our financial crisis how? Not to mention they could easily turn and use that knowledge technology against us -- they are not an ally of the US and yet we give them millions of dollars in defense capabilities that can be used against us.

What do you care. You don't have a job. You're a sponge.
