    They COULD have used 2000lb unguided bombs to do the same thing as one of these.
    Why do you suppose they didn't?

    We don't "supply" it, we sell it.

    Oh yeah, I'm sorry we don't supply it. We merely create it, house it, and transfer ownership of it on reciept of money. That's right....wait a minute!

    In this context, I take "supply" to be a verb that means "give to".
    This differs from "sell to".

    And, in "supply and demand", "supply" is a noun that refers to a commodity.

    No ****ing ****. Wow...color me surprised. That's why we supplied the bombs to Israel, and we should not be supplying military hardware to Israel. We provide it, that's supplying. This is a stupid rhetoric game you're trying to play for some reason. We should not supply military hardware to Israel, which includes giving it or selling it to them. We should not provide military hardware to Israel.

    There's no reason we shouldnt be selling weapons to Israel or any of our other allies.
