Americans pay for Israeli militarism

My Grandmother use to say: somethings is just a low down dirty shame. Yes, Grandma, and this is one of them. It doesn't matter how much money and weapons the US gives Israel, it will never be enough. Israel's will always have her hand out for more. It's amazing that American taxpayers remain silent while their hard earned dollars are being pissed away on the world's greatest welfare recipient.

The US has agreed a massive increase in its military aid to the Zionist regime in a move that signals US all-out support for Tel Aviv.

"In my last meeting with the president of the United States, we agreed that the aid would stand at 30 billion dollars over the next 10 years, meaning over three billion dollars a year, starting next year," Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said at the start of his weekly cabinet meeting.

Olmert described the new package as a considerable improvement and a very important element for what he called the security of Israel. Current US defense aid to Israel stands at 2.4 billion dollars a year.

"Other than the increase in aid, we received an explicit and detailed commitment to guarantee Israel's qualitative advantage over Arab states," said Olmert, whose approval ratings have sunk to single digits amid continuing anger at his government's handling of last summer's Lebanon war.

The sizeable hike to annual US defense and military aid to its closest Middle East ally was unveiled amid reports of a hefty US arms deal with Saudi Arabia, although Israeli politicians dismissed concerns of a new regional arms race.
