Is there another nation on the globe that gets the special dispensation from the United States concerning arm sales, prices therein, license to manufacture, not the econoboxes that other supposed allies get, but the top-of-the-line fighter/bombers, electronic packages, weapon systems, ammunition and a myriad of other goodies afforded to the Israelis? Not even close. Time to end this silliness. Time to turn Mother's picture to the wall. Let's not forget that many nations - including island nations - owe their very existence to America, stopping the Japanese and then obliterating their forces in World War II. Our account is paid in full to all of the nations in the Pacific theater - for eternity.
