Posted by mythoughtsandnews on July 29, 2006
Much has been made of the Syrian and Iranian origin of weaponry used by Hezbollah but there has been little discussion of where Israel’s weapons come from. A new report by the World Policy Institute examines how the United States provides billions of dollars of military aid to Israel each year and how their current arsenal is composed of U.S made equipment.

American Politicians and the President give Israel weapons and billions of dollars a year. So you can say that Israel is fighting its war on the backs of American tax payers. Americans have no say in how politicians run the government. American working class gets poorer each year so that the government can waste the tax payers’ money with no say on how it is spent. The only ones that profit are the politicians and the President. They get richer while the working class gets poorer. Some people in the lower ranks of the military are even on food stamps and welfare. A Democracy only works when the people actualy have a say in how the country runs, but politicians have to listen and do what the people say. Instead they listen to the rich.
