If those Helicopters and Bunker Busters where so vital for Israels protection then they'd stop with the Settlements. Rest assured that if Israel was attacked we'd be right there with them with every thing they need to defend themselves. What we're not going to do is condone their stupid policy of building Settlements in occupied territory which doesn't help the situation there, in fact it just make it worse for all involved.not when Israel has innumerable amounts of intel of the soviets arsenals, made hundreds of fixes to american technology, a training area on IEDs for american soldiers, a guaranteed safe zone for any american ship, vessel, plane, vehicles. provided intel, as well as stop countless terror attacks against americans high on the table. ( just recently Israel, which completely should hate this guy, saved Jimmy Carter, in what would have been an ambush to kill him)
ALL for FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So does offering some aid to an ally hurt? no.
is 2 billion (i believe is the amount of aid) enough to keep the country protected? hell no.
so stop bitching about the aid given to Israel, when aid given to other countries have DIRECT links into the massacre of people.
As for selling Arms to Arab nations, it's necessary to do for influence which is to our vital interest due to our dependency of Foreign Oil. If we didn't need it we wouldn't be doing it.
