Closing Thought–31May18

The one country that gets our aid without question is Israel and those funds were to be spent on American made equipment so Israel gets out taxpayers funds and spent in American to enrich the M-IC……but it seems that Israel wants to change this program…..

As the record-large 10-year US military aid package to Israel is set to go into effect, Israeli MPs are lobbying the Trump government to make substantial changes. In particular, they object to the made-in-USA rules.

The $38 billion aid package is to be spent on US-made equipment. This has been a common way to make foreign aid politically safe, as it means that money is ultimately going to US arms makers who have a lot of influence.

Israeli officials, however, see this US armament as a problem for their economy. The Israeli Knesset Finance Committee is estimating that 22,000 Israeli jobs would be lost if the US doesn’t just send Israel the money straightaway and let them spending on Israeli-made arms.

Yet this was the agreement all along, back to when President Obama got the Israeli government to finally, grudgingly agree to accept $38 billion worth of equipment. While President Trump has suggested the aid couple end up being even bigger, as part of a desire to throw more arms at Israel, the desire to keep growing US weapons exports means he’s probably not going to be eager to send Israel the cash instead.

I do not like the idea of my tax dollars being sent to the thugs in Israel…but since I have no say in where the money goes I’ll just say “Screw Israel”…..you do not like the way things are done then we will keep our cash and they can go f*ck themselves….put that in your matza ball and shove it!

Peace Out…..chuq

  1. So you send Israel money to but stuff to keep employment going in the places where it is made?
    Easy answer. Just give those workers the money for making nothing, then let Israel spend its own money in a different country, and find some other powerful ally to back them up.
    Unless I miss my guess, they need you more than you need them.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I like your idea makes sense…..you are right without the US Israel would be nothing but Palestine…….as it should be….chuq

      1. “Silly Comment” maybe but very astute if one has any sense of what is really going on in the world today.

      2. You right it does and depends if you want to know or want to believe crap…..just a side thought …did you actually read the post…..just wondering

      3. I read the post but as you know you and I often have differing opinions about things. The statement “It depends on whether you want to know or whether you want to believe crap” sounds awfully confident to me. I could say the same thing. Maybe I should say it more often.

      4. I have no problem but the post was about the stealth plane and its origins…..you may use it whenever you like…

      5. “Douche,” like “Beauty” is in the eye of the beholder. We are only douches to people who are, in every way, inferior to ourselves — and that accounts for hordes of individuals. The herd instinct of the clueless horde can never compete with the intelligence of people who can actually think for themselves. Trust me! You are not a douche!
