    You complain that people are not loyal enough to the USA. But the USA is morally and literally bankrupt. Their shelf-life has expired. I'm as nostalgic as the next guy, but we cannot depend on the USA for support of Israel any longer. We must find new allies, and if that requires us to be anti-USA then so be it. But we will always be friendly to americans and if the USA survives as a nation maybe sometime in the future we can do them a favor. Anyway, why should you complain about Israel spying on the USA? Good friends spy on each other, that's just how it works. No hard feelings, eh? But releasing this report hurts Israel. It damages Israeli relations with the USA and makes it harder to extend peace talks. If it was intentionally released by the Israeli government, then the Israeli government was being stupid. Israel needs better diplomats. You can slap the Americans around and they won't hold any hard feelings but China is different.
