About that 38 billion dollar “aid” package to Israel

(Before It's News)

There's a lot of commentary across the spectrum about the recent aid package Washington negotiated with Israel. At one end of the spectrum you've got folks claiming that isn't nearly enough. At the other end you've got all kinds of folks with their knickers twisted up over the fact that Obama can find 38 billions in aid for the State of Israel, but the cupboard is bare when it comes to aid for US states like Mississippi, West Virginia, and Arkansas, which are by any metric poorer than Israel.

You're missing the point, folks… this is “military” aid, not good old regular run-of-the-mill do-gooder aid. In fact, what you're looking at here is 38 billion dollars in free money to America's military-industrial mafia. This foreign aid should be seen as a subsidy to the bombs & bullets sector of America's manufacturing economy, not as “foreign aid.”

What the hell would Arkansas and Mississippi do with 38 billion dollars worth of military aid?
