U.S. Limits on Israeli Defense Cooperation Focus on JSF
By AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, WASHINGTON


U.S. restrictions on arms sales and technology transfers to Israel are focused on the Joint Strike Fighter program and are not being applied across the board, a Pentagon spokesman said.

”We had some restrictions within the Joint Strike Fighter Program that we’ve discussed,” said Lawrence DiRita, the Pentagon spokesman. “And it’s mostly restrictions on technology going forward in that program.”

”It’s not a uniform freeze but it’s a case-by-case basis,” said Bryan Whitman, another Pentagon spokesman.

Maybe the U.S should limit cooperation with Israel on more projects in order to send a stronger message.

If Israel paticipates in the JSF project, it will get the stealth fighters, might provide help to China with the J-XX using experience gained from the JSF project.

If Israel does that, it can consider itself one of America's enemies.

Yep, looks like America just doesn't want any competitor to its one and only superpower status.

Yeah, but at the same time Israel is a vital Ally in the middle east, but I still believe it has to cooperate with us if it wants us to support it.

US need to toughen up a little on Israel, should ban several tech to Israel to sent them a strong message... high US tech cannot fall into the wrong hands or we will have another cold-war soon...

Israel has shown that it can't be trusted with such technology.

Therefore we should not sell it to them or allow them to participate in its development.

Without Israel as an ally, the US would have close to no true allies which has a powerful position in the middle east. Israel is the US's "puppet", if you put it in unglamorous terms. The US needs Israel as an ally, and Israel needs the US for weapons and arms.

If you want a nation that would listen to the US and be strong enough militarily and politically, and also allow the US to place troops inside (Bye, Turkey), then there is only one Israel. As for Iraq...There is a lot of speculation, and after all, the Iraqis vote. If they got a pro-Russian nut for president, then Iraq might go back to pre-war status, getting MiG-29s or such. The US might try to assasinate him blah blah blah, but mostly you cannot be sure if the new Iraq will be a US ally.

The US is building permanent bases in Iraq and Afghanistan, I honestly don't see why we need Israel in the middle east. Name me one thing Israel has done for us in the middle east? All they do is just incite more anti American hatred. It time to ban them form hate JSF program and the US Laser programs.

I’m even thing of gathering signatures and organizing mass phone calls to congressmen about banning Israel from these projects.
Anyone with me here?

You dont have Iraq and Afghanistan; the US and allied troops are there for keeping up the order ATM, as I guess you know.

How welcomed foreign military will be once and if these countries settle down can not be estimated now.

Without Israel as an ally the US would have almost ALL Middle east nations as allies (maybe except Iran).

They are not helping the U.S. and they give us no military advantage such as tech. If we stopped baby feeding the m I guarantee you their military would crumble.

yeah i am tired of isreal we need to let the russians be isreals new best friend instead of the US then would the middle-east start attacking russia?


I think Isreal is a mature country now so they can start fending for themselves and get ready for even more spying than before.
