The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
Who starts getting their throat cut? Several things come to mind. First, Israel may hope that republicans will be willing to cut the defense budget to pay for welfare for Israel's settlement program. Second, Israel may hope that democrats will take every penny given Israel out of Social Security. Third, we can be real and with replacing the income slashed in the Bush Tax Cuts off the table, then the question is will the USA slash all non-defense expenditure and endure the still imbalanced budget? Or will it slash the entire defense budget and enjoy a tiny surplus? How about seeing welfare for non-voters being sacrificed in an attempt to avoid cutting both defense or Social Security? Israel and Netanyahu destroyed Obama and is worse off than had he not been destroyed. It is an old curse that one should get what they wished for.
