|Americans Burning Israeli Flags|
And now, Mr. lame duck POTUS Barack Hussein Obama has made it clear that he's out to destroy Israeli military industries by restricting all the shopping coupons to American businesses.
If successful, the administration’s push to remove the clause would inflict some real pain on Israel’s growing security sector, which already exports more arms overseas than almost any other country apart from the United States. On the flip side, the change would mean a potential windfall for American defense contractors scrambling to sell their wares abroad to make up for declining sales at home. The Middle East and Asia are now driving growth for major U.S. contractors, with about a quarter of revenue coming from international sales, compared with 15 percent in 2008.Yes, he considers Israel to be a competitor not an ally. And Obama's aim is to weaken us, not to help us.
The proposed shift “could be very good news for the U.S. defense industry,” said Loren Thompson, a longtime consultant for American military contractors, because “domestic defense spending is flat as a pancake and Israel is a consumer of high-end military technology.”
I think that the time has come for Israel to quit these deals cold turkey and, as complicated as it seems at this point, stop accepting this shopping coupons. The "tweaking" our experts and engineers do in requesting changes to the arms bought with the coupons help the Americans to upgrade their products, without actually having the brainpower and skills to do it on their own. It's time for us in Israel to use our talents to promote our own military industry!!
