[quote]Why should they?[/quote] Perhaps they shouldn't. But then why should we care about Hamas and Hezbollah, who have no beef with us? I believe all nations should tailor their foreign policy based on their own narrow national interests, not other nations' interests....

[quote]But as you said, the thing about the present is that it's always changing. [/quote] Since governments change every time there's an election, a revolution or a coup, our allies shouldn't be static. This is why it's nauseating when I hear politicians talk about our "unbreakable bond" with Isra...

[quote]And they don't rank too highly on the scale of partners I would count on to join us in our next misadventure.

Obama said when he was running for President that he didn't equate supporting Israel with supporting Likud and I agree with him 100%. The problem is that Bibi is hardcore Likud, and every US President has had rocky relations with Israel whenever Likud has been in power. If Labor wins the election in...

[quote]His kneecapping of the military was some Game of Thrones shite.[/quote] It's a good idea to have a strong military in the toughest of all geopolitical neighborhoods, but after what happened to Morsi, I can see why a Mideast leader would be leery of a really strong military. It's almost like y...
