Israeli soldiers died for us all over the place through the Cold War as they provided our bulwark against Soviet attempts to gain a port in the easter Mediterranean and domination in the Middle East.They tested our aircraft against Russian aircraft and pilots and bested them. They did almost all our dirty work in the Middle East from the end of World War II to the end of the Cold War and I am glad that most Americans have a little more intestinal fortitude for dealing with the dangers in this world, than you seem to. While none of us wants any of our great young men and women to die,. at least we're a country that always stands up for freedom and, John, across all the military cemeteries in America, Stars of David stand as proudly as crosses marking the places where American soldiers who happened to be Jewish were laid to rest after losing their lives in the defence of America; ever since its founding.
