    As an American and a military vet, I am sad to hear of this news. When you think of the mamouth price paid, not only from the jewish world community but from dozens of countries that put their own interests aside to protect the most vulnerable and hated country in the world. And after all that...almost half the country doesn't even want to be there? The worst part is its mostly about money. It makes me want to vomit. As a US citizen, I could be out of a job, homeless and have 50 cents in my pocket and the thought of leaving my country would never enter my mind. Im starting to wonder if supporting Israel is really worth the high price the US has had to pay the last 15 years or so. Not to mention, being Israel's only friend has made us the second most hated country in the world.
