Partially disagree

Reader comment on item: End U.S. Aid to Israel

Submitted by Peter Stoll (United States), Jul 26, 2016 at 20:40

Dear Mr. Pipes:

I am a long-time and avid reader and fan of yours and concur with your opinions 99% of the time,

Here, I agree and disagree to an extent.

US Military aid is mutually beneficial, as the money to a great or almost total extent spent in America and creates jobs for Lockheed-Martin, Boeing, etc. It is better for Israel to use America for air power as that is where the 'big money" is.

I agree with the Israeli general who refers to ground warfare, as that is an Israeli strong-point.

There should be a happy medium struck as Israel knows how to fight asymmetrical warfare and can well educate the US.

Respectfully yours,

Peter Stoll
