Hagel Coming to Israel Bearing Lots of (Sort of) Gifts

When Chuck Hagel leaves the region, he will have explained how Israel can afford to spend even more billions of dollars.

Here’s another gem from the DOD press release on the coming trip: the United States will jointly train with the Emirate and Saudi pilots, as has been the case for other sales of military aircraft.

“There will be enhanced end-use monitoring consistent with what we provide with sensitive technology to our other allies and partners around the region,” the Pentagon official said, “and there will be consultations prior to any of the weapons’ deployment.”

And here’s the punch line: “None of the military sales signals a change in U.S. policy toward Iran or any other country, the official said.”

Now, if you’re Iran, and all around you the folks are stocking up on upwards of $40 billion worth of American killing machines – is that last statement going to be a source of comfort to you? I’m just saying…

  1. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    He's bearing no gifts. Israel is paying for all the weapons. The reality is that even though he is there to "accept the order" for the systems, there is no doubt they will not be delivered as long as obama biden kerry or soros are in charge unless Israel succumbs to their demands to surrender.

  2. Tensions on the Korean Peninsula and in Gaza are once again on the rise. Month by month, and week by week the middle east spins more out of control. Iran continues unwavering on it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons and Assad the dictator of Syria is still in power. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Assad of Syria looks like he may be willing to use weapons of mass destruction against his own people and against near by nations as well. If this situation does not drastically change soon for the better, I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 will likely take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and could usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

    Paying for them with American military aid.

  4. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Really Ben? You may want to check the two CBO reports over the past 15 yrs – one ordered by Bush and one by CLinton over the $9BILLION/yr Israel borrows annually from the US, the $70BILLION in economic aid it infuses to the US economy, 75000 DIRECT jobs, not to mention FMV interest on the loans.You may also want to note that Israel is one of only 3 countries that have NEVER defaulted on a loan – the others being Canada and Australia. Personally, I believe Israel should tell Jew haters like you to f* off, stop borrowing miney from the US, go to the world market, and develop her own industry including the Kfir fighters.

    But then, why respond to a nazi like you with facts? Go play with your mom/wife, fill the still with hootch, and get your head shaved. The skinhead is filling in
