Why do people say USA is fighting on behalf of Israel?

I have a friend in the Israel military, and he says that the US army helped during the last war with Lebanon, but that's not fighting on behalf of a country. USA should replace the Israel army, so as to avoid Israel's deaths, as they are doing partially.

    Isreal was the primary front of the so called "War on Terror" before the current American expeditions in the Middle East. Considering that Isreal is our primary ally in the region, we supply the means of defense of Israel and the continued existance of Israel is central to our diplomatic stance in the Middle East, we are often seen as fighting on behalf of Israel when we are fighting in Iraq.

    Israel is the primary target of extremist rhetoric and Saddam supported violence against Israel, therefore the war in Iraq could be viewed as being fought on behalf of Israeli interests.

    So what, if the poster lives in America, there is such a thing as Democracy and Free Speech in the USA or has the constitution been changed in the last 250 years.

    Tough Titty if you dont like what the questioner posts, as there is absolutely nothing you can do about it.

    Its obviouse some of the posters answering need some form of higher education in the laws of their own country and the right of freedom of expression.

    Well to be fair just about all allied nations fight along side each other, it doesn't mean there are the under the policy the other nation, just offering help as a form of aid (plus it doubles up for spying too). We all know the Yanks look out for themselves only as they figure the planet is named the USA not Earth. They want there to be discord in the middle east as it forces prices up at home and allows for higher tax collection and decresed spending on the public with less reason. The destruction of the weapons arsenal also allows for newer more expensive replacements. Currently the only states of heavy employment The list of advantages to war over peace are financially great at present. I'm amazed wel.. not really as to how many ignorant Americans post idol bull **** threats showing us all how dumb they truely are beleiveing the propaganda from their government and sadley think they are really doing good. But in reality they are the aggresors making them the terrorist that they claim they are fighting, as the last twenty years of history has recorded. Those brain dead whinny Isreali's have also done the same thing and get no sympathy any more. The fact is how many times have Isreal and the US been invaded and how many times have they invaded? We all know and the world by enlarge hold the current view that the US and Isreal nations are the true terrorist of the world. They do the exact same thing the Third Reich did by trying to impose thier lame ideals, beliefs and laws in a place the are not needed or wanted. like so many have tried and have never achieved. The Catholic chuirch did the same thing centuries ago and we called it Dark Ages. They have become what they claim as evil of the world by thier very actions and the world knows it too now. This is why most nations don't invest in US items as much anymore. That is reflected in thier economy directly at present. People today think lots more about what they choose to buy with what it really supports. GM is no longer king of money or number of vehicles produced, very few people now travel there, compared to a few years ago. More embassies closed abroad than ever in its history since WWII. Trillion dollar losses around the globe due to loan payment failures. The gap of poor and wealthy growing bigger every day on the US soil. Not that all people down there are like that but the majority are which give the impression globally that the whole nation is a bunch of over armed hill billies out of control, being rouge. The world is sick of it and can no longer support it financally or enviromentally. I know for me with our dollar being stronger than theirs and still getting stiffed makes me want to buy abroad, but not from those freaks. That would aid them to stock pile even more weapons of mass destruction, weapons to fight drug crimes which they have zero inerest in stopping as it's an industry down there. Not being cunstructive in anyway much to the average person on the whole. Sorry if it is a bit long but those lame *** answers by uneducated and ignorant morons that are obviously American with very narrow minded veiws have to be told that it's time to GROW UP!!!! Idol threats about you better not be American posting that, when in fact right now more than ever it's BETTER TO NOT BE AMERICAN but they are to blind to see it.

    Of course, US should send more soldiers to Israel than now, but keep it secret like currently, so nobody will complain if USA soldiers keep diying while Israel's soldiers stay alive. USA is helping Israel not only with billions of dollars and weapons, but also with human lives.

    the whole war on terror is for two things.

    1.to push the israeli agenda for a greater israel in the region.

    2.push the cost of a barrell of oil to over 200 dollars after the attacks on iran, which in turn will wipe out the middle class, which in turn will cause america to stop the funding of israel and the 1.2 trillion dollars we have GIVEN israel militarily. perhaps that is the silver lining in all of this. if israel is left to stand on its own feet alone, after they destroyed america and drained us dry, they will surely be destroyed by the arab armies when we can't come to their aid any longer.

    my question for you is why is it american deaths are acceptable but jewish deaths aren't. this is the jews' fight in the middle east. not ours. iraq had NOTHING to do with 9/11. you had never heard of an iraqi terrorist before the iraq occupation.

    i used to think we should support israel at all costs. nope not any more. fk israel. what they do to the palestinians is criminal. they have broken 71 UN resolutions. iraq only violated 17.

    perhaps you should read genesis 12:1

    1 The LORD had said to Abram, "Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you.

    2 "I will make you into a great nation

    and I will bless you;

    I will make your name great,

    and you will be a blessing.

    3 I will bless those who bless you,

    and whoever curses you I will curse;

    and all peoples on earth

    will be blessed through you."

    you see, jews, christians, and muslims are abrahams family. we are all children of abraham. we all have an equal claim to the holy lands abraham was promised. if you curse muslims, you will be cursed just the same as if it were a christian or jew. jews aren't any more special than the rest of us. if anything, they turned their backs on God by denying the savior, his gift to them, his only son, Jesus. even the muslims acknowledge Jesus is their greatest of all the prophets and will be returning in the end times. yes, it does say this in the quran. jews deny him all together. in fact, in the torrah, jews believe that all non jews are subhuman. you think we should support jews and even sacrifice christians for jews? well here is the word of god and what he says about the situation.

    Rev 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

    I think your facts are in error. The US gives aid and materials to Israel. The only troupes we have there, if at all, are instructors on how to use the weapons we have sold them. We do not fight Israel's wars. That they well enough on their own.

    i'm no longer able to study all of that, i basically can no longer. as a results of fact which you for sure have a case of the pink scare. Communism in Russia replaced right into a failed test, yet communism is a reliable theory and somebody will in all probability try it and be triumphant interior the destiny. Communist leaders like Castro found out that they could no longer make communism artwork and grew to grow to be dictators. FIDEL CASTRO isn't A COMMUNIST FIDEL CASTRO isn't A COMMUNIST, FOR THE final TIME FIDEL CASTRO IS A DICTATOR.

    You know, thats how Zionists talk. You feel an Israeli's life is far more valuable than anyone else's. All I have to say is that you better not be American because I would consider what you said treason.
