    The Zionists are using all their influence to keep us in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    It's not exactly a secret that Muslims from neighboring countries travel to help their brothers fight against our occupation. Where would these "holy warriors" be going if we weren't in the Middle East? Israel.

    I've also heard, from several reputable sources, the US sends around 7 million dollars per day to Israel. This is one of the fundamental reasons much of the Arab world hates us.....we have financed the Zionists continued attack on Palestinian territories.

    Not only has the US subsidised Israel financially, it has literally given Israel millions upon millions of dollars in military aid, including some of the US's most sophisticated weaponry.

    The war cost 3.7 trillion for over ten years. What about the rest of the 14 trillion dollar debt. Where the hell does that go to? Massive entitlement social spending thats where.

    I'm not really a fan of most of our social programs, but I'm inclined to view budget-busting tax cuts as the main culprit. It's gotten beyond ridiculous - GE didn't have to pay any taxes last year and businesses run to the government for a cash handout whenever they suffer a setback.

    Oh yeah... it is disgusting. Did you hear of the multiple squadrons of F-22s being given to Israjunk "JUST TO START TALKS WITH THEIR ENEMIES!?" It is utter BS. Those jews have their devil-blooded fingers in everything.
