... and it'll always take a mile.
Two recent examples of this iron law:
1) In 2016, Obama gave Israel a record 10-year $38 billion military aid package, which, btw, it only grudgingly accepted. The deal is set to take effect about now, on condition is that the money be spent on US-made arms. (See my 14/9/16 post Bushama's Legacy.)
But now Israel wants it all - upfront - to spend on Israeli-made arms. (Source: Israeli MPs push Trump to let them use military aid on non-US equipment, Jason Ditz, antiwar.com, 21/5/18)
2) Just recently, as you know, Trump moved the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, something Israel and its fifth columnists in the US have been urging for decades. Not good enough apparently.
Now, Israel wants the US to formally recognise the Israeli-occupied (since 1967) and -annexed (since 1981) Syrian Golan Heights as Israeli territory. (Source: Israeli intel minister says US will soon recognize Golan annexation, Jason Ditz, antiwar.com, 23/5/18)
Will Americans ever wake up?
