Just a flash by Drudge, and an issue I strongly support the President on

Any Freepers have a problem with this?

Good stance. No problem whatsoever with this.. but I'm sure the anti-Bushbots will find some error in his ways..

I have a philosophy to "pray for the peace of Jerusalem"But if any of her enemies attack I sure hope we defend them! Amen to what the President said.

Nope. I have seen a rare poster on FR that says Israel should deal with the Iranian problem on their own. I say, let the USA and Israel take it to the enemy first. Russia and China are in on this too, WWIII is just around the corner. What better allies to have then the God of Israel and all mankind?

I believe that Iran would not be so bold without their Russian backers. Russia and China are lurking in the background....very scary.

Don't start nothing, won't be nothing. The "anti-Bushbots" support the President on the WOT and foreign policies 110%.

Stop being ridiculous by inferring critics of one policy transfer that to another.

The only type of person that might have a problem with this is Pat Buchanon.

Israel is attacked every day. I assume he's talking about Iran, though, or maybe Syria.

We must stand by Israel.

I believe that a more concise statement is in order however. I think it should say that "in the event any nation attacks Israel with weapons of mass destruction the United States pledges to respond in kind with both certain and devastating consequences."

I find the statement rather vague vs 'the Us will consider an attack on Israel as an attack on the US. Come to aid? That can be interpreted many ways.

Was there any point to your flamebait post? Didn't think so. This thread is about foreign policy. Last time I checked it had nothing to do with immigration.

I am a so-called, "anti Bushbot" because the man is less conservative than some moderate Demonrats, but I agree on this position. Those who bless Israel, will be blessed; those who curse Israel, will be cursed to live in the stone-age (the Muslim world).

'In the event of any attack on Israel, the United States will come to Israel's aid'...

Choice of words is interesting, as it would (purposefully ??) include a retaliatory attack after an Israeli preemptive strike.

Did I mention immigration at all in that post? No... in reality, I was thinking more of the Pat Buchanan/Anti-Israel types who want the US completely isolated...

Hasn't this been American policy for decades?

During the Yom Kippur war, President Nixon had a virtual air bridge of supplies running to Israel.

Now, the only effective way of effecting our policy is to enclose Israel under the American nuclear umbrella -- it would be unthinkable not to.

Since Iran clearly wants us to attack them, this will give them an option for speeding that process up.

I gotta be honest, I don't even believe Israel has the fortitude to defend itself fully & with no compromise. Too many Freepers think that this is the 1972 Israel. It's 2006, they are infested with weak people these days. If they took a severe hit, I doubt they would muster much resistance.

This isn't your grandfather's Israel, kids.

I know it's US policy for decades, and I'd like to believe him, but I just don't see it. A majority of the American public doesn't have confidence in his handling of Iraq. He is in no position now to lead the American people into another war. This is tough talk and the status quo - heaven forbid if something happens, I don't think he has the clout to come through.
