back to OP
if Chuck Hagel have chance to become Chief of Pentagon, than zionist MSM will bring up his old comment from 14 years ago in 1998, Comment On Gay
Ambassadorial Nominee James Hormel... plus they will try to call him anti-Semite to...
1) What does "second line" mean? I keep coming across it on ATS and still haven't figured out what people mean when they write that. Just curious -
I mean, I come to ATS because I hate not knowing things, so this is driving me nuts
2) regarding the topic - it's not like Hagel is planning on attacking Israel, so what's the big deal? If they were a useful ally, I could see being
concerned about whether he was willing to spend $2T better spent in the US (or not spent at all) attacking Iran on their behalf, but they're not. It
just doesn't add up. Do people really think that us spending trillions of dollars, possibly thousands of lives, loads of goodwill in the world (what
remains), and weakening our homeland defense is going to benefit us in any way? I'm all for sanctions if Iran were to perpetrate an unprovoked act of
war on Israel, but we need to stop hurting ourselves for the benefit of others. It's as if we've become mercenaries for free. Is Israel going to pay
us for our services? Are pro-war folks in the US going to sign up for the military to help augmentnour depleted forces at home?
WWII was different - there was an enemy who would have taken over Europe without our intervention, and with the consolidated power, most likely Asia
(including Russia and the middle east, and Africa next. The US would have been completely alone with Nazi Germany having the resources of the rest of
the world outside of North and South America. We would not have lasted more than 20 years before we had a one-world dictatorship, led by Adolf
We don't need Israel as a base, we have the world's most powerful, most advanced Navy. We have bombers that can take off from Virginia, carpet bomb
Iraq, and land back at home without refuling. I'm not against Israel, and I certainly don't want them attacked by Iran, but we are in no position to
fight their wars for them. If we want to sell them military equipment, at a substantial profit to us, fine. At least that way it benefits us, as makes
both Israel and Iran think twice. Iran because Israel would have the most advanced military equipment in the world, Israel because they would be going
broke propping up our economy, instead of the Us going broke keeping them safe on the cheap (for them.)
