25. And as an ally that has spied on us, attacked our ships...accidentally they say,

has a large lobbying force AKA pressure group and as you pointed out takes our treasure ($3 billion year) then we as an friend and ally should be able to put some well-earned pressure on them to start taking concrete steps to ease tensions.

Yeah, it won't be easy, and I don't want to see Israel turned into a shooting gallery.

We could apply pressure, but our politicians have a severe lack of will in some areas.

If the USA did find the balls to tell Israel go back to the bargaining table I would applaud it wholeheartedly.

Israel could always tell the USA to go fuck themselves, but where else could they find a friend who is so welcome to abuse?
