    the civil war in Syria makes Israel's destroying their nuke sites, look like a VERY good move, in retrospect.

    You haven't a clue what I mean. They are the only freaking actual democracy in the ME. They don't treat their citizens like subjects and animals, and they don't even have the death penalty in their country. They are surrounded by nations and peoples who want nothing less than their total destruction, when they are the only coherent sober-minded society in the entire region. It's all fine and good to supply them, but when **** comes to shove, they will be screwed trying to defend themselves in the current geopolitical climate.

    Why we need Israel:

    (excerpt)


    Still, the value of the Israeli military to American interests goes deeper. Its joint ventures with the US military have been essential in developing such high-tech weaponry as missiles, drones and Tactical High Energy Laser systems. Israel’s defense industry excels in the kind of innovation, creativity and efficient just-in-time delivery that’s too often missing from our own megadefense contractors and keeps both them and us on the leading edge of military technologies.
    Just as our Patriot batteries protected Israel during the first Gulf War, so may Israel’s new tested “Iron Dome” anti-missile system be the shield that protects American cities from rogue-nation and terrorist missile threats in the future.
    By the way, that innovation and creativity go far beyond the defense industry. Israel’s growth rate consistently outperforms bigger developed nations; its per-capita capital investment is 2.5 times bigger than America’s -- and 80 times China’s.
    Israel is now the Start-Up Nation, a major crucible of innovative companies and breakthrough industries, from microchip design to medical technology to software and network algorithms. Israeli companies supply Apple, Microsoft, Intel, Cisco and others with key technology.
    So who needs Israel? We do. Our military and defense industries and even our biggest high-tech companies all depend on a strong and independent Israel.
    The forces of darkness are gathering, both in the United Nations and the Middle East. If we abandon Israel now, it would be worse than a crime. To paraphrase the French diplomat Talleyrand, it’d be our worst national blunder since Vietnam.

    It's just that those of you in your teens and early twenties hardly know anything else and so you accept it more easily.

    The incident, described by three former senior U.S. intelligence officials, might have been dismissed as just another cloak-and-dagger incident in the world of international espionage, except that the same thing had happened to the previous station chief in Israel.
    LEAK: US sees Israel as spy threat

    This "item" should not have been placed in "breaking news" section of DP, but, in the "breaking wind" sub-forum. This "news" story is a hackneyed rehashing of an old exercise by the friendliest of nations...

    Here is one explanation from 2004....

    "Many allies enjoy a formal "intelligence liaison." They share, trade, or consolidate assets and findings. During the Cold War, the nations of NATO had such arrangements. U.S.-Israeli relations were solidified after the 1973 Yom Kippur War, when Israel supplied the CIA with a massive cache of Soviet military hardware: tanks, fighting vehicles, artillery pieces, and so forth.

    Yet there are times when allies don't want to share. Consider the following situation: Countries A and B are allies. Countries B and C are friends or, at least, trading partners. Countries A and C are enemies. Country A might want to spy on its ally B in order to learn things about its enemy C.

    The world is teeming with such relations."

    wasn't information acquired by Pollard eventually turned over to the soviets? Sorry, there is hardly anything friendly about setting up internal spyrings within another party's govt

    Isn't spying on other nations, even friendly ones, Foreign Policy 101? I've always assumed we had spies in most countries of importance and vice versa.

    Making enemies out of a billion muslims doesn't benefit the US.

    military aid to Israel is kind of an American jobs-program.
    What a twisted way of looking at things. So in your world foreign aid = jobs.
