The US defends its allies

The US defends its allies – Middle East Forum:

Asked on February 1, 2006 whether the United States would protect Israel militarily against Iran, President George W. Bush left no doubt: “You bet, we’ll defend Israel.”

…On certain issues, US policy is remarkably consistent and bipartisan. No matter how poisonous political battles are in Washington, Congress unites in the face of aggression against the United States or its allies. Bush’s pledge to protect Israel is neither unique nor counter to US interests. For Tehran or any other state to believe otherwise or engage in policies that would challenge the White House on its fundamental duties to its allies would represent a serious miscalculation.

  1. Where in the US Constitution are we to be to world’s police?

    What were the words of (I believe) George Washington about ‘trade with all, foreign entanglements with none’?

  2. Since when is defending allies being the world’s police? “On certain issues, US policy is remarkably consistent and bipartisan. No matter how poisonous political battles are in Washington, Congress unites in the face of aggression against the United States or its allies. Bush’s pledge to protect Israel is neither unique nor counter to US interests. For Tehran or any other state to believe otherwise or engage in policies that would challenge the White House on its fundamental duties to its allies would represent a serious miscalculation.”

  3. ok, where in the Constitution does it mention that we should protect Israel (or any other of our allies)? Whether or not you wnat to accept it, Bush is a Gadianton and was (almost) destroyed this great nation, both financially (More debt than all the other presidents combined) and as a “light unto all nations” (the flag, the country, the citizens are now looked upon with disdain and fear by the entire world.)

  4. Your statement “where in the Constitution does it mention” is pointless. In retort, where in the Constitution does it mention the we should have engaged in the following wars, War of 1812, Mexican War, Civil War, Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War?

    And that is the short list!

  5. Exactly me point! We should not be involved in these wars, unless of course we delight in the shedding of blood. We will answer to God for our sins.
