Direct question, though, Gaff. What does the United States lose by selling weapons to Israel? It's good for US manufacturing, and it's hard to envision a safer place to sell weapons that will never end up pointed at an American soldier.
So what's the problem here?
We attacked Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, Sudan, Chile, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos....and now Syria.
Why not Iran?
Of course we will. In fact, we are already at war - and have been for years, staging covert ops, drone overflights, cyber-attacks plus a killing economic blockade.
