www.missilethreat.com

Why are we paying for a missle system for Isreal when we are broke as a country. 46 states's budgets are in the red, real unemployment is over 20%, & forclosures are at record highs and we have money to purchase a missle system for Isreal. Does Isreal have a budget crisis, and are so poor we must fund them; I doubt it. Then again, this is the same US government that is funding the Taliban (Wikileaks) and protecting their poppy fields, while and at the same time engaged in a bloody war with this same Taliban in Afghanastan. War is huge business for the elite, and our kids paying the price with their lives, and the folks at home with their wallets.

WTF!?!?!?
My only question is: WHY!?!?!?


I am sick and tired of this irresponsible government stealing my hard-earned money and giving it away! Moreover, I'm tired of this government's unconditional support of the criminal regime that is Israel!

I'm disgusted at this, the American people work and pay taxes so their government can arm another country???? Where do the "people" get a say in how their money is spent, I'm glad it's not my taxes (even though the UK government is just as bad as giving my money away).

I'm so ready to shed blood and take this country back by force. I don't believe there is any other way.

Sigh, I have asked this question myself a thousand times..I always get the same lame answer: we need to protect our only ally in the region..blah blah"

Im not trying to be cruel, but I am so weary of the aid we provide this state to the exclusion of our own people. Why cant they PURCHASE a nice patriot system from us and spend their own money developing this Arrow3 business.

Its never ending I mean our government is spending 100 million on training Sri Lankans in IT so American corporations can farm American Jobs there too rather then fill our own people pockets.

I have truelly had enough of whats goin on, Im starting to feel more than a little Patrick Henry

Even when Israel does purchase something from us it's with our money.

We also give slightly less money to our Arab allies in the region though, just to keep things interesting.

In addition:

Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. From 1976-2004, Israel was the largest annual recipient of U.S. foreign assistance, having been supplanted by Iraq. Since 1985, the United States has provided nearly $3 billion in grants annually to Israel.

For FY2010, the Obama Administration requested $2.775 billion in FMF to Israel.

OMG Why are you questioning the defense of Israel?? You are anti-semetic!!!

Just kidding. I 100% agree with you. Unemployment continues to skyrocket, homes are being forclosed on at record rates. Yet somehow we can come up with 100 million to protect Israel. Why can't they use some of the $3 billion we give them every year?

now, now, let's have none of this antisemitic tin foil hat stuff here. It's perfectly logical to give israel all the money she wants because as americans, we should kiss their ass, let them manipulate us, let them kill our soldiers, let them laugh at us and mock us, and grovel at their feet like good gentiles. It says so in the bible.

No way...we consume SO MUCH OIL believe me..Israel is ours to protect that. They are a jumping off spot that is armed to the hilt.

The people who make these decisions are not poor folk. They care little about the plight of a few whiners(they consider to be) and carry on with business as usual.

The important thing is to keep that nation of claim jumpers in place, for the grand finale, which they plan to play out according to the truths(planted lies) in the Bible. The global control system is at steak, so the whining of a few mean nothing.

Isreal is in our national security interest. Why are we paying for a national health care system when our country is in a economic crises?

The Arrow program has been going on since the mid 80's. Israel develops the system and shares the tech with the US. The results of this exchange has tech from the project in many of our missle and missle defence systems. Also the latest renewal comes when Israel is about to make a decision on buying a squadron of F-35s at over $100 million each and you can bet these two choices are tied together. So if you want to complain about helping Israel because you hate them thats fine but, if you complaing about the US wasting money then you should know the net result of this will be a large profit and needed tech. This is the way most of our aid is geared, to help an ally, create US jobs and make profit. Military foriegn aid has alway been a money maker.
