29. i'll do you a favor.....

and explain to you how the real world works....but you won't like it, since it will "ruin" your emotional rant:


israel buys a lot of smart weapons from the US and their parts. This allows for precision bombing etc. Without those very expensive weapons and systems israel would have to use cheaper less exact weapons.

for instance, instead of using a precision guided missile from a helicopter that is watching the group from afar with other monitoring systems waiting for the moment when the kassam firing group is isolated...the army would simply use artillery, who's first shells can be off by hundreds of meters and then get adjusted, which takes many more shells.

a lot cheaper, but a lot more damage is caused.

israel is hardly going to stop defending itself simply because the US decides not to help.
