    I'm only going to reply to your most recent post, because I don't think it is worth my time to reply to the others. First of all, I would argue that Israel is more self sufficient than America ever will be, but in very different ways than you are imagining. Second, and more importantly, you asked how America benefits from Israeli research... Israelis (in Israel) invented: the Galil assault rifle, the Uzi, cell phones, varieties of Pentium chips, drip irrigation and cherry tomatoes, but most significantly thousands of live-saving medical devises including a camera inside a pill that can be swallowed. Do you have a cel phone? Ever eaten a cherry tomato? Have a computer? God forbid you'll need to be in the hospital for an extended period of time, but if you do, chances are some of the equipment doctors use were originally made in Israel. Natallie Durson, how many times have you been to Israel? Or the Middle East?
