Why the Arabs think we are responsible for war in the Middle East.

Have you ever considered why the Arabs think we are responsible for the upheaval in the Middle East?

The Israeli air force fighter squadrons are composed of Lockheed Martin F-16I Fighting Falcons and Boeing F-15Is, which fire US-manufactured AMRAAM, Sidewinder, and Sparrow missiles. From 2000-2005, the United States licensed to Israel at least $1.062 billion of spare parts, engines, and missiles for its F-15 and F-16 fighter planes.

From 2000-2005, the United States licensed to the Israeli navy more than $572 millionworth of patrol boat, ship, and submarine components and spare parts, torpedoes, and sonar equipment.

From 2000-2005, the United States licensed to Israel more than $348 million worth of tanks, components, and spare parts.

From 2000-2005, the United States licensed to Israel $69,163 worth of M-109 spare parts and 155mm artillery shells.

These are some reasons why.

These statistics for US weapons licensed to Israel are compiled from the State Department's annual report to Congress pursuant to Sec. 655 of the Foreign Assistance Act. They have been published by War Times. You can reach them at http://www.war-times.org.

The Israeli assault has drawn mounting international criticism but the White House said US President George W. Bush would not press Israel to halt its military operation. Asked whether Bush had agreed to a request from Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora that he rein in the Israelis, White House spokesman Tony Snow said: “No. The president is not going to make military decisions for Israel.”

That is bull. We already made military decisions for Israel by supplying them with the means to rain death upon civilians. In our name! In our name!
