We will always protect Israel, and her interests. You might not like it, but that is true. Likely Israel will not need our help, but if they ask we will be there.

So the war in Afghanistan was to protect Israel? You seem to be stretched a tad thin on the facts.

We give them billions that they spend on our weapons.

you do realize that Ike's farewell speech meant to warn us of the military/industrial/congressio nal complex, don't you?(check the history on that if not, very interesting) The way it works, which Ike knew, was the congress approves billions in aid to Israel that they use to buy our weapons through our military. the industrial complex that makes those weapons makes millions so they contribute to that congressperson's campaign so they give israel more aid to buy more of their weapons...lather, rinse, repeat.

What else do we do in the Near East theater in defense of Israel? We also have national interests there, you know.

The global system is
for those who have no culture to uplift the life of others.

It is the same case in India; Srilanka
and more In Israel.
