I know the conflicts between Israel and other Arab and middle eastern countries have been mentioned many times in PF. Rarely is it ever mentioned why we should continue supporting Israel . Since the 1970''s , the United states has given is a total estimate of 1.3 trillion dollars of taxpayers money to finance Israel military. Israel Is the largest recipient who receives a large sum of foreign policy money from the united states. CNS estimates that Israel's military has a very sophisticated weapons program(thanks to US taxdollars) with a nuclear arsenal composed of 100-200 nuclear weapons. Many experts believe that Israel nuclear weapons arsenal might even contained thermonuclear weapons. Israel is the size of my hometown and my hometown it's not very large. I am very confused when right wing political pundits say that Israel will be topple by Iran's military who we are not even sure are developing nuclear weapons and if they are they might only have one or two nuclear weapons. Iran will be stupid to attack the second largest military on the planet! I know Mccain and Obama both want to continue to support Israel, I just don't understand why.
