I personally believe the US should stop this none-sense not because they have to, but because they should care. They should care that certain policies
of theirs causes more harm than good.
Barack Obama, the US president, has agreed to abide by a 40-year policy of allowing Israel to keep nuclear weapons without opening them to
international inspection, according to a US newspaper.
In a report on Saturday, The Washington Times quoted three unnamed sources as saying Obama had confirmed to Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel's prime
minister, that he would maintain the "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

I really have to wonder what your agenda is oozyism. What do we need to wake up from? That Israel is an enemy? That the West should not try prevent an
Islamic Theocracy from having access to nuclear weapons because a rogue ally of ours (Israel) has nukes? Two wrongs don't make a right now do
We all know that the USA is being hypocritical on the Iran nuclear technology issue. I think you are trying emphasise this one point over and over in
your threads so that it appears more valid to you.
Funny you should mention those "unnamed sources" because they appear to be prerequisites for most negative stories about Israel. At the root of
almost every single piece of "breaking news" there are always unnamed sources. It's funny because any other country would dismiss most of the
stories as fiction fabricated out of thin air or quarter-truth air.
It's understandable to keep the identity of your sources hidden on certain issues. The problem is that the more anonymous sources that you have, the
less credible the story actually is. No matter how many times you repeat it.
Then building upon this idea by using stories that are based on anonymous sources to prove an argument is troublesome.
