Quarelling Lovers Make Up Over Missiles

The United States and Israel may be fighting, but fear not. These BAF (Best Allies Forever) have the equivalent of a bunch of roses to reconcile over, a sweetheart deal to buy fighter jets. The US supplies the cash, and Israel buys the weapons. It’s like a gift certificate! For your own store. That sells guns to a domestic (and foreign) violence offender, Israel, who America refuses to cut off no matter how badly they behave! Anyways, it’s good to know no arguments over settlements or peace negotiations come between American and Israeli arms dealers.

“As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was in Washington this week absorbing the full wrath of the Obama administration, the Pentagon and Israel’s defense establishment were in the process of sealing a large arms deal.

The aircrafts were manufactured specifically for Israeli needs, and include a large number of systems produced by Israel’s defense industry.

The deal will be covered by American foreign assistance funds.”

What the United States provides Israel a year officially for its “special needs,” which allow’s Israel to shield its citizens from the full cost of their military adventure. $3+ BILLION

Not having to suffer any consequencesl? PRICELESS.

I only wish this was an April Fool's joke.

 I still don't understand the whole.... "Here, take this $3 billions dollars of AMERICAN tax dollars, and then go spend it on AMERICAN weapons." 

WTH is that? 

Why not just give the frickin $3 billion to the American weapons manufacturers and save some time and headache?
