We give Israel 50 billion in military aid each year…. and they only have a 3-day supply of rockets to defend themselves? No wonder they didn’t help us in Iraq. They spend all their defense money on iPads and weed.

Time to cut off the trust fund to Israel. They need to get a job.

Mission accomplished.

The video shown to the world of the aggressive action to blow up the Hamas guy who brokered the 2 year truce caused Palestine to fire their rockets into Israel to test the dome of defense.

Yep – it worked great. Hilary is getting a ground tour right now.

Thanks to their testing with live rounds – the USA will fund another billion or 2 to Israel so they can buy more weapons from friends of politicians.

You scratch my back I’ll fill your pockets with tax payers money so you can fill the pockets of my friends who will pay me in other ways.

Everyone’s a winner. Except for a few Palestinians, but who cares – the are terrorists. Or at least that’s what we taught to world to believe.

Now you can setup the longer range dome so we can see how it works from Iran trying to send in missiles. We just have to stir them up a bit more so they get frustrated and do like the Palestinians. Piece of cake.

In 2011 alone, the US paid Israel $210 million for Iron Dome production and development, for which the US received precisely nothing. No rights, no systems, nothing. And this is in a single year. It is essentially a gift of Medicare dollars to Israel at the same time we are cutting benefits here because we cannot “afford” them.

See: the United States–Israel Missile Defense Cooperation and Support Act (H.R. 5327) of 2011.
