Military aid is not to be used to take pot shots at Israeli soldiers they are for use in wars to defend the country. What happened the other day was not self defense in anyway shape or form and if the soldier who murdered an IDF soldier was using an American M16 then the US has no business giving Lebanon these weapons. The Lebanese army isn't even doing the job that the US is arming them to do because the government has now officially made Hizbollah a defense force and is letting them keep their weapons even if Hizbollah are still a law unto themselves. If Hizbollah is now officially part the system then the army won't go against them anyway so whats the point? If Russia and Iran want to continue to arm Lebanon thats their decision but the US should not be giving them weapons.
