    Israel has made a lot of enemiexs and is still very busy at making new enemies. This is largely due to Israel's settlement enterprise, avoidance of peace, and oppression of the Palestinian people. It should be noted that Israel has no support in all the world for these activities. The point is that, a few years back, Israel's worst enemy was Saddam. America spent a trillion dollars, killed hundreds of thousands of people, and solved that lettle problem for Israel. Today Israel's worst enemy is Iran. If America were to solve that problem for Israel then the cost in money and lives would be greater than we saw in Iraq. We don't know who will become Israel's worst enemy after Iran, but we can be sure that it will be someone. Turkey and Egypt may be contenders. America has already begun cancelling space flight and scientific research in order to finance the mideast wars it fights on Israel's behalf. It appears that both Japan and China will beat America to Mars within the next ten to twenty years. America has major health care issues. Social Security is near the brink. What are we doing about it? Giving money to Israel and then fighting wars to preserve Israel's nuclear advantage and settlement enterprise. Have we become insane?
