    Not sure why an embassy location is such a big deal to us. Usually they are in capitol cities.

    Pull them all out of the ME except for those staitioned offshore for spec-ops and those in Israel working with the IDF.
    How many and why? The Israelis have abundant trained soldiers.

    Are you comparing this to the US presence in South Korea? The US military in SK are simply there for symbolic cannon fodder. Not a strategy that has a lot of appeal in Israel.

I suppose there's no point in pretending otherwise.

    So, we've chosen sides. The next question is whether (or when) our faithful ally Israel will drag us into another ME war.
    Why does Israel get to be a Jewish state and every Anglo nation has to be multicultural or they are racist?

    They use to co-exist back before large numbers resettled into the region. Pre Israel 1948.

    The ME has been warring since the Ottoman Empire.

    Doesn't matter. As long as we're helping to finance the stalemate, it's Israel's obligation to keep trying. I don't CARE if the chances of success are zero. The cost of making ongoing peace gestures is next-to-nothing, and as long as the efforts aren't putting Israeli civilians at risk, Israel has an obligation to keep trying, indefinitely if need be.
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey and HayJenn

    That's a good question.
