America Refusing to Resupply Israel

The recent Congressional omnibus bill meant to establish the national budget going forward had budgeting for resupply of the Israeli Iron Dome System intercepting missiles maliciously removed. Israel exchanged the targeting software and other engineering developments used by Iron Dome Systems for America manufacturing and supplying of Iron Dome System intercepting missiles for Israel. The weapon systems, communication-control equipment, associated military equipment and thousands of rounds of ammunition left in Afghanistan by retreating American military to provide the governing body, the Taliban, an effective military, supersedes what Congress provides for sale to Israel annually, or even a decade’s worth, including the above referenced Iron Dome System missiles. We stress these missiles for the Iron Dome System is precisely because this defensive system intercepts approximately ninety percent of incoming rockets and missiles determined to strike in or near developed regions while allowing those striking open country to strike these predominantly empty regions. Israel requires assistance in manufacture of these missiles and has worked with Raytheon for the manufacture at a level difficult to produce in Israel. Each missile costs approximately fifty to one-hundred thousand shekels each but are worth every shekel as they save something far more precious, people’s lives. Further, we figure it is simply a matter of time before President Biden and the Congress refuse all aid to Israel in order to fully arm and provide for their new Taliban government in Afghanistan.

Israel is considering recalling our ambassador from the United States in protest much as France, the longest standing American ally since the Revolution against the British Crown, has already done. We will most likely settle for a tersely worded note to someone, who will ignore it, at the State Department, enough done. From our experience, many Israelis believe that Israel needs not just the backing and protection provided by the United States, especially in the Security Counsel with one glaring exception, but is also dependent on United States military aid. The fortunate news is Israel thrives and is better served by providing completely for all production of our military needs. Our auricle, replete with graphs, provides a strong argument for Israel pursuing such a policy of all military equipment being homemade with intended alacrity. This would have an adverse effect on the American arms industries, both through the competition for sales and the loss of revenue as Israel must spend her aid on American made arms. Iron Dome missile resupply is not allowed as part of those sales should Congressional Democrats get their way. Israel manufacture of her own weapons in a measured procession is preferable to the United States cutting the aid forcing Israel to go cold turkey.

Feared News to Come from Afghanistan

We fear future revelations resulting from the termination of efforts in Afghanistan and the disastrous lack of preplanning and pathetic execution of the United States withdrawal of military personnel and equipment. Missteps and outright blunders committed by the Biden Administration and top military Command and Control (CnC) within the Pentagon forces one to consider some horrifying possibilities. We have thus far resisted revealing our innermost fears as they paint a truly horrific picture of incompetence or outright treason against the United States and its Constitutional and legal restrictions placed on the various branches of governance. So, let us start down the rabbit hole into the dizzying realms of potentialities caused by the sniveling cowards playing General and CIC (Commander in Chief).

Our intense fears are concerning the actual number of American citizens left behind spewed by the media only counts those in Kabul. Add in the remainder of Afghanistan and that number quickly shoots past a few thousand and potentially being determined to be tens of thousands of American citizens, closing in on two-hundred-thousand American citizens, their families and the Afghanis solemnly promised inclusion in any pullout ordered. The possibility exists that the billions of dollars of advanced military equipment intentionally left behind was just one more insulting factor in the Biden-Taliban agreement. Another apparent surrendered item in the Biden-Taliban agreement was deserting the allied Afghanis leaving them to the not-so-tender mercies of the Taliban. Rumors abound over the Biden Administration recognizing the Taliban as the rightful government of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan while providing the Taliban with millions, if not billions, of dollars in ‘humanitarian aid’ allowing the planes with Americans and Afghanis sitting on runways to finally leave. These are but some of the blunderings committed by the Biden Administration and the Pentagon pertaining to the Afghanistan withdrawal, a withdrawal which has all the images of complete American surrender to the Taliban and turning against their former Afghani allies. Time will reveal other shortcomings as we learn more, potentially allowing for another article at a later date.

America Has Not Yet Failed

Does it, by all appearances, not look as if the Biden Administration has turned their backs on any remaining loose ends resulting from the Afghanistan retreat by American forces? They met their goal of removing all United States military personnel from the Afghanistan theater by their set deadline, as delineated by President Biden himself, of August 31, 2021. Here is the excerpt from the beginning of paragraph seven of President Biden’s End of the War in Afghanistan comments from August 31, 2021, “In April, I made the decision to end this war.  As part of that decision, we set the date of August 31st for American troops to withdraw.” That set the official end of the United States government’s efforts to get people out of Afghanistan. That also set in motion numerous individual efforts to assemble fellow-minded veterans, preferably those with known specialties such as Escape and Evasion (E&E), sniper and others. These groups are currently attempting to pool resources while taking precautions to avoid government infiltrations. Americans are answering the call to aid those left behind to the fullest extents of their abilities.

There are rumors and reports, and with the modern media the two are often inseparable, that there are as many as six aircraft with American citizens on board which are being refused permission to fly out by the Taliban or by the Department of State. One success freed a mother and her three children by clandestine land route into an unnamed bordering country. The State Department in Washington DC immediately stressed their undisclosed part in assisting with this private operation. In truth, those familiar with this operation do give credit to local State Department personnel but stressed they got nothing helpful from Washington DC. Who should one believe in what has been a fast moving and hectic last few months? Honestly, we will worry about credit when everybody, both American and Afghani with approval, have been successfully rescued or their end result is known. By known we mean fully explained to the American people at the very least and hopefully to all with concerns for the lives of these human beings caught with no easy or obvious way home. The American government may have failed these people but Americans and many special Americans will go to any end for their safety and we salute those who have put themselves on the line for America keeping her word by their efforts.
