    We have a real POTUS now...we had one when Bush was in office, and we'll have another when whoever wins in 2112 is elected. In case you haven't noticed Vlad, the US provides: 1) 20% of the Israeli defense budget to the tune of $3 billion/year in security aid, 2) veto protection in the UN, 3) special funding like the $207 million for Iron Dome, 4) US influence on the world stage on Israel's behalf. If you require more support than you are currently gifted...I suggest that you send your request (and your ill will) to Benjamin Netanyahu. From the tone of your talkback you don't really want a friend (the US already is Israel's friend)...what you seem to want is for the US to place Israel's needs ahead of our own. It is Israel's leadership...not the US government...that is responsible for keeping Israel safe and prosperous. It is Israel's government...not mine...who has failed you. Friends??? You don't sound much like a friend...but I suppose you are to be commended for being honest enough to tell us what you really think about us evil Americans.
