US on Hook for Israeli Military Spending


 … by  Jim W. Dean, VT Editor      … with  Press TV,  Tehran


Managing Editor of Veterans Today Jim W. Dean says that the United States is on the hook for providing military aid to Israel.

You can listen to the 2.5 minute inteview at Press TV here. Excuse the audio quality as these often have a bit of garbled transmission. This was an early morning one and I was not drunk. I promise the garbles were electronic and I was not slurring my words. Selecting the 800 bit-rate speed quality on the drop-down menu helps, also. And don’t forget that the download button will shoot a copy to you in a few seconds on these short audio ones.

We appreciate all of your help in spreading the word. And, leaving a comment at the Press TV site helps us a lot. International exposure is a hugely competitive business these days, and the more audience that Press TV sees us pulling, the more interviews we will get.

They are very good at math there. So you can really help us by showing your presence via comments and FB links when we have something up. We have been able to get fabulous exposure for VT through these constant interviews, and that is reflected in the increased readership, including more overseas people. And my 2013 goal to bring more ladies in, so we could get away from the ‘boys only club’  image, was successful. They have been great contributors.

“The US is now on the hook for a lot of Israeli defense spending as far as 10 years out in advance,” Dean told Press TV on Tuesday.

“When George Bush was getting ready to leave, they were worried that there might be a pushback against some of the money they had been committed,” he added.

According to the Pentagon, Washington and Tel Aviv signed an agreement under which $429 million of American taxpayers’ money “will be transferred immediately to Israel” to fund its Iron Dome missile system.

The deal was signed last week in a bid to “continue support of the production of the Iron Dome weapon system” and provide opportunities for US industry to “receive meaningful co-production opportunities for Iron Dome components.”

[Editors Note: What may not be obvious to the average reader is that what they are saying here is how technology transfering is being done, on two levels. They are supposed to give them components that are not as good as ours, but the defense contractors can easily pass that on to them "on the side,” and have a history of doing that.

Rather than selling them Patriot systems made here so the money stays in our economy, borrowed money mind you, it goes over there, and they get control of the technology. That this is happening is known by all in Congress and all in the military who say nothing, as putting the treason spotlight on top level politicians has career implications, because the military has not yet had the balls to stand up to them by having a work stoppage and demanding a house cleaning.

They have the power to do it as they would crush the AIPAC traitors and set up step number two, releasing all of the treason-in-action phone intercepts they have on Congress and many more. If you think the Russians had interesting material like the Nuland call and the Ashton one on the Kiev shooting, the NSA can put probably two-thirds of Congress and ex-high level administration people in prison for life. That’s how big a pile they have.

So I will ask you an important question. If they saw a really huge demand that all of this informaton be realeased as a critical national security issue to finally rid the American government of its Swiss cheese-like infiltration, what do you feel the chances are they would be more inclined to have someone walk out the door with it all?

But if the public would do nothing to cover their backs in doing this, then why would they jump off the cliff? The answer is they won’t. It is our job to show that we will have their backs, and if we don’t do that, it will never happen. That is the reality, like it or not. ]

On March 4, the US House of Representatives also passed a bill which named Israel a “major strategic partner” of the US and called for the expansion of Washington’s military ties with Tel Aviv.

The legislation, which was passed by a 410 to 1 vote, calls for expanding the delivery of US arms and military technologies to Israel and commits US Congress to increase funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile system.

Israel already receives billions of dollars from the US each year. Under an existing 10-year aid agreement signed in 2007, $30 billion of American taxpayers’ money is flowing to Israel.

The US annual military aid to Israel has been elevated from $2.4 billion to $3.1 billion through 2017 under the existing agreement.

    Here is a question to the traitors and firster filth that voted for this .

    Since zionis follow the talmud and it says even the bost of the goy should be killed

    Where does that leave people who sell out their own family and friends to a known enemy for pieces of worthless fiat paper.

    Do you really think that you will be rewarded for your actions or

    are you really the usefull idiots that are dumped in unmarked graves once their usefullness runs out???

    Everybody respects someone who stands up for their beliefs even the worst enemies.

    Nobody likes a sellout, a traitor against his own, or a rotten little snitch bitch.

    A bullet and a hole in the ground is too good, I would send them out amongst the people they screwed
    over and let them know it was himthat did it.

    —–We could have a lesser Corrupt Congress—-

    —-There are very few voters, who say USA-1st or USA- 1st — Party Affiliation–2nd
    —-There are voters who are bought by the Termite Zionist & interest groups
    —-There are voters who are lazy or plain stupid to investigate the candidates
    —-The majority of USA media owned or obey powerful interest groups like AIPAC
    —-The majority USA media reporters are lazy/afraid to investigate & report the truth
    —-The majority reporters’ bosses tell them what to investigate and report.

    Jim, the Swiss cheese analogy is good, but I’d say they’re more like certain parasitic wasps that are able to paralyze their prey with a sting and then, while riding the prey, cause it to blindly walk back to the wasp’s nest where it’s filled with eggs which then feed off the still living prey (or so I read in the book What Darwin Got Wrong). The Zios’ prey include every institution of our government and society, including our churches, which are paralyzed and then directed at will. Our society is effectively blind to them because the Zios control nearly every forum of pubic awareness and cooperation, including most of the alternative press on the Internet. They’ve also nearly made it a crime to even suggest they act collectively in their own interest at the expense of the host society despite that being the true history of their relationship with countless hosts. The proof is in the pudding. These maggots have in just the past decade consumed trillions to fight their wars, which trillions could have entirely rebuilt our crumbling infrastructure, re-established our manufacturing base, lifted every citizen out of poverty, and possibly found a cure for cancer. Once these parasites are finished feeding, nothing but an empty shell remains, and, as Netanyahu said, the United States will be thrown on the scrap heap of history.

    @Peter Gilbert

    Yes, but who owns Lockheed Martin, perhaps some international banks. That is no burger business and when they got the top of art product ready, they can put the price as high as they wanted, because there is no real competition. Then paying the workers minimum wages, owners of the Company make pretty good profit.

    How wonderful, more money from the American taxpayer, so Israel can buy more American made weapons.
    When are they going to use again one of these weapons no one of our ships of god knows where when they don’t get their way.
    Same old thing, history keep on repeating it self.
    Just like before we were fighting neo nazis now they want to come to their aid? How bizarre can it get.
    Strange thing too that they are temporarily in bed with the Jews. When will that backfire?

  6. Seanoamericano  March 12, 2014 at 7:29 pm

    Would anybody have expected anything else after all is the jews. This however may be a good thing the whole place would be a giant powder keg and when set off it will blow a larger crater there

    I sent this comment to Press TV & I’m putting it up on my Facebook wall too.

    I live in New York. Many call it Jew York because this is where the majority of the very small minority of Americas Jews are located. Yet everybody I know including my Jewish friends are fed up with AIPAC, the SPLC, the ADL and most of all Israel. Yet congress votes 410 to 1 to funnel even more money into this festering boil of a country that has never done a single thing for any American who wasn’t a frothing at the mouth Zionist then calls it a “major strategic partner.” Clearly Americas congress is guilty of treason and the military must take appropriate action.

    Jim Dean, I sincerely appreciate your welcome & respect for the “ladies” who joined VT in 2013. I have learned so much in a few short months since discovering VT! This has, in turn, inspired me to go deeper “down the rabbit hole”. Knowing the truth also gives me the courage to share with others…like the pebble in the pond. Thanks to VT for making a huge difference for those of us who truly care about humanity/We The People. Exposing the imposters helps a great deal as well as presenting solutions. We CAN turn this around with the willpower & fortitude it requires along with waking up!

    So what your saying Jim is………The money I have been saving to buy new shoes for myself and my family I can’t because I have to fork over the money to Israel so Israel can buy the latest weapon systems so they can destroy Palestinian shoe factories [ if there are any left ].

  10. dcstreettechnology  March 12, 2014 at 1:05 pm

    So to put it in lay man’s terms what your saying Jim is……… The money I have been saving for months to buy myself and my family new shoes I can’t buy them because I have to fork over the money to Israel so they can have the most up to date weapon systems so they can destroy Palestinian shoe factories [ if there are any left ]. Could you please let me post this gate keeper whoever you are. This is the third time I tried to post this! Thank You!

    • Jim W. Dean  March 12, 2014 at 3:05 pm

      Yes…if you feel something like warn rain coming down on you, it’s really your American leadership taking a whizz on you from the roof. They seem to enjoy that for some reason.

  11. Bente  March 12, 2014 at 12:31 pm

    If NSA would do that we would forgive them all the other stuff they have collected… Maybe they wont actually have to collect it then…
    Thank Jim…

    Jim perhaps you should remove the audio, the VT nemesis Abe Foxman just tweeted VT staff members routinely get drunk (martinis) before they go on PressTV. -)

    From former congressman Jim Traficant, 2009, expert from an article

    He adds, “they have us involved in wars in which we have little or no interest. Our children are coming back in body bags. Our nation is bankrupt over these wars. And if you open your mouth, you get targeted. And if they don’t beat you at the poll, they’ll put you in prison.” He says “Israel gets approximately $15 billion a year from the American taxpayers. That $15 billion is $30,000 for every man, woman and child. And people in my district are losing their pension benefits.” He said “America is in danger if we don’t take back our government without foreign influence, interference.”

    I think AIPAC actually did get Traficant tossed in jail, AIPAC could toss just about any congress representative in jail and most congress representatives know this.
