No I wouldn't. But do you realize that you are basically justifying the killing of American service people. Maybe they were giving the enemy intel. I would have no way of knowing. But I am an American, not an Israeli. And I will always sie with our interests rather than Israel's interests.

I also don't want people to think I'm like Iran's president or something. I just feel that Israel has taken advantage of the U.S. at times at our expense; e.g. the Liberty incident and the Pollard incident. They even tried to strong arm Slick Willy into freeing Pollard in order for Israel to back the peace plan. Not giving in was one of Clinton's better moments.

and the Pollard incident.

Did you THIS article?

They even tried to strong arm Slick Willy into freeing Pollard in order for Israel to back the peace plan.

They tried because he was such a putz.

Not giving in was one of Clinton's better moments.

Like he did that out of caring for this country.

I cannot justify the killing of American servicemen.

The matter is as I said problematic.

I wish that I could explain the matter, but I simply cannot.

Nevertheless, I support the Israelis, and I firmly believe the any Nation which goes against them is in for trouble.

Call me a fool.

All countries spy on each other. That doesn't excuse Pollard. Pollard should rot in jail for life. But that doesn't mean the US should just cut all ties and aid to Israel.

As for the Liberty incident, it was a giant bungleup all around.
