They spy on us because the ARE dependent on us - they need to know which way we'll jump on certain things, before they go down.
I could care less why they spy on us. That's like trying to explain why Muslims kill Americans. I could care less. As in Iraq there should be a price you pay when you support hostile action against the US. My tax dollars should not be used to support a foreign country's espionage against my own country. Surely you must see the absurdity in this. I'm pissed that Israel even has the gall to ask for Pollard's release. I don't know who sees us as the bigger sucker Vicente Fox or Ariel Sharon.
