"As someone who was actually in the US Armed Forces, the Liberty incident, which I consider an act of terrorism by our supposed "friend," makes my blood boil." I looked into some of the details. Israel ordered the USA repeatedly to leave that war zone. The US Navy had logs of eight (8) different orders to the Liberty to leave the area, and none of them got through. You can hardly blame that on Israel. The Israeli airstrike successfully destroyed every radio antenna on the US ship, and then the torpedo boats closed in to make sure there would be no survivors. But US sailors improvised a hidden antenna and got the word out. So the torpedo boats instead gave the life rafts back and offered assistance. It was a foreign spy ship in Israeli waters. Wouldn't you do the same in their place? No need to hold a grudge. It was just a little problem between friends. Let's forgive and forget. No real harm done.
