I sure wish we would take care of things at home first then we can give anything that is left over out.


Is it just me or does anyone else think this is just way the heck out of line?

It says $30 billion over the next decade, not annually.

Opps. I guess I misread it. It is still quite a bit of money since we have so many internal domestic problems right here in the USA.

Wouldn't you agree?

Yes, it'd be hard to disagree that the U.S. has spent an exorbitant amount of money on Israel.

Why we give Israel money for its military in the first place is beyond me.

Israel has the 15th largest economy in the world, it's not like they can't afford
their own military.


And I'm not even going to bring up the atrocities the Israeli military has committed.


I don't mind giving money to countries for humanitarian aid, but funding another countries military,
especially with a track record like the IDF's, is an atrocity in itself especially
considering the sheer amount of poor and starving people here that that money could help.
