Someone asked me why a blockhead on Twitter doesn't want the US to support Israel.

No idea, but supporting Israel brings us things we otherwise wouldn't have, like the SPIKE-NLOS missiles.

And the Trophy Active Defense System.

Trophy can intercept enemy tank rounds and rocket-propelled grenades from six feet away.

It's like a shotgun, and it's fully automated.

We also got the Iron Dome.

Nobody talks about THIS, but remember all the problems with the F-35 Lightening II?

They're still happening.

Guess who's NOT having problems with the F-35?

Why is Israel the only country in the world allowed to modify and customize American weapons?

Because they always fix the problems, and they always make the weapons better.
There's no mystery why people single out Israel with a particular vehemence.

But here's the thing:

In 2007, the Gulf Cooperation Council made peace with Israel and began funding Israeli weapon development.
The Israelis were working miracles with $16 billion a year.

What do you suppose they did with $5 trillion?

The most destructive weapons rely on speed and blast effect.

Shock wave.
This was about the size of a tactical nuke.

Israel had developed explosive gases for shooting payloads into space using massive cannons.

But the gases are now used in fuel-air explosives (FAE).

The blast effect can be controlled. It can be directed.
We have the same special relationship with Israel that we have with Singapore, but when in comes to Singapore, nobody says a word about aid or dual loyalties.

Singapore can close off the China Sea. The Chinese would have to use nukes to get out.
We have our relationships for reasons.

Wait until we get our hands on the stuff Israel designed for the Gulf Cooperation Council.
