Yeah, but what if Israel didn't have the United States vetoing every sanction against it in the UN?
Not sure what that has to do with direct military aid payments. I'm all about the money, I don't give a rats arse about the rest of it.

No it's not all about the money. Israel's settler enterprise depends on U.S. diplomatic protection as well. Do you remember what brought down South Africa's apartheid regime? If the U.S. ceased using its U.N. veto to protect Israel, the occupation would end faster than you can say "Greater Israel".

Yeah...we are so full of shite.



There are people who have studied this stuff their entire lives, and are paid big bucks to make it work and even they can't. But we have all the answers.

Well, all I care about is the money. I say it's time to withdraw from the situation and allow them to work it out like the gentlemen they truly are. I am sure both sides are altruistic.

Honestly, it's time to stop interfering in international affairs to the point we are creating enemies and worry about our own borders.

I agree but do you remember what happened to Bush 41 when he tried to do what you're suggesting?

Do you remember what happened to Obama after he tried to do what you're suggesting?

Obama shouldn't be so worried about donors.

Doesn't matter what happens there will never be peace in the region, even if Israel rolls back the borders to pre '67

I disagree. Folks on both sides of the conflict, as well as many distinguished Americans, believe that had Rabin lived, there would be peace by now.

The first link describes how AIPAC, special interest groups, and other PAC lobbies of various sorts have shadow control over our government. Two party systems promoting their own political agenda are bad enough. But lobbies need to be abolished. The people of this country have lost their voice and representation to pure corruption.

Not holding my breath. I respect your optimism but most people just want the US out.
