The excitement! What will the total body count be? Who will get high score? Who gets the first numbers on the board?

It was good to see Israel lobbing a few missles into Iran's nuke processing facility yesterday.
It's about time someone else takes the bull by the horns and takes care of their own regions security instead of the US doing it.
I'm sure the US had a buy one get one free sale on the missiles though.

The Israelis take care of themselves far better than we do. Quite often we ask them not to respond so as not to escalate situations. They are very capable.

The US policy toward Israel is, "Get a bunch of shit free, get more shit free." The taxpayers of the US are being looted by the whole wide world. It would be easier just to list countries that do NOT get US taxpayer welfare than to list all the ones that do. E'erybody all up in the world gettin' our money, and even Trump didn't put a stop to it. He tried, he cut some funding here and there, but didn't really do anything to stop the massive transfer of wealth from the US to the rest of the world.

Not with Israel, they pay good money to get better technology and weapons, commensurate with their status as the only real ally in the whole region.
If ANYONE should get a decent deal, I would be least concerned about them.

In recent years and under the radar, the Israeli defense industry has undergone some impactful changes. Such changes, so it seems, might not be given full attention by the Israeli ecosystem: phasing out the ability to convert US Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Offshore Procurement (OSP) into shekels for local defense research, development and procurement of Israeli manufactures equipment.
Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of US foreign assistance.
As of August 2019, the US has provided Israel $142.3 billion in bilateral assistance and missile defense funding. The US Congress has throughout the years demonstrated a bipartisan broad support for the US-Israel bilateral relationship, including for US aid to Israel.
What's our national debt up to now? $ 27T? $30T? We should sell them most of what they want.....key word is sell.
