inherant in this message is the fact that the US sees the need to bolster israeli security precisely because the arabs are not intent on peace with israel. Seems to me that the US wants isreal to make "peace" and then have the proper weapons to defend that "peace". what a farce...asking for peace negotiations to proceed when you know in advance that one side are not committed to real peace. Go figure...
