Dear Joe Biden: this phrase has bitten the United States for decades. Israel has only to point the finger at anything, call it a threat and Uncle Sam must rush to help. Please note a new contract for F35 fighter aircraft, endless add-ons (Iron Dome) to an already huge annual military gifting to Israel, the incredible gift in money and lives to bring down Saddam Hussein, the complete loss of U.S. credibility in the UN from protection of Israel. Thanks, says Israel, but will you also knock out Iran as we've been asking you to do since before the Iraq war? Meanwhile, the Palestinians cry out to the U.S., "hey we are losing everything out here! Where's liberty and justice for all, Uncle Sam?!" and the U.S. trembles over making too bold a response.
