Ok, i think that i will take serious hits here but i would like to make a point. Read it and then bash me,please. Israel has its pressure tools on US
- just as US has on Israel. But in the major issues when both sides disagree, you can clearly see who is stronger. Examples:
Oslo agreements - leaders that were against it pressured into it. Read what Netanyahu said before and after USA pressured Israeli parties that were
opposing it into going on with it.
China weapon sales by Israeli military firms - i think you all know it very well , how Israel was "backstabbing" US. But US and other firms also
sold military technologies to China. Deal was broken after US heavy pressure.
Modern arms/aircrafts to Saudi Arabia/Egypt - It did not help Israel, that you say is holding US by the balls and all the pressure did not help, arms
If you check it, every serious conflict between the two ends just as US demands it. They give a lot of money for military purchases, they are main
ally and it is understandable. But it still does not change the positions - who can only influence politics of another (Israel with AIPAC help and
other stuff that i do not know) and who can totally CHANGE politics of another - like US did to Israel, not once.
I want to make a following "bet" - if Israel is going to get F-22 before other allies - you are more correct. If not - then my position is closer to
