TEL AVIV — Israel is gearing up the development and production of indigenous munitions so as not to be overly dependent on U.S. weapons.
"We have to end our exclusive dependency on the United States in the area of air bombs," an official said.
The official said the administration of President Barack Obama has delayed U.S. weapons shipments to Israel.
Remember the Roman Empire, the state of Judea behaved in ways which annoyed the Romans but didn't do them any harm. At the point that they were becoming a nuisance, the Romans turned against them, destroyed their temple, wiped them out and told them 'an empire has bigger concerns than you'. This is what Israel faces in the next 25 years.
The risk that the American empire will say wait a minute, you don't matter so much to us, either because we need oil more than we need you or because oil is no longer important - doesn't matter both has the same effect. You are more trouble than you are worth and the issue of the Holocaust and anti-Antisemitism is declining with demographic move to the next generation. This is a catastrophe for Israel, because Israel has no other friends in the world.
