13. Maybe, but what do we get out of supporting Isreal?
Edited on Sun Sep-07-03 10:04 PM by RaRa
Honestly. How does the U.S. as a nation benefit by supporting Isreal? I should, but have never asked a good Israeli friend that. I know Israel does alot in the technology business, but if we flooded some other country with our money for such endeavors (say, some former communist bloc nation), wouldn't they be able to provide the same innovations? I'm seriously not being facetious here, just have always wondered what the hell we get out of helping one country (who loves to stick it to us when they can) that's surrounded by a bunch of other countries that hate it (and would perhaps not hate us as much if we sided with them instead).

Really wondering...
