    Obviously somebody doesn't know Israel's history.

    National debt is not a problem? You make it sound good. Sigh.

    Anyway this is my last post in this thread. Too much invective for me and a waste of time.
    National debt *can* be a problem - countries have become bankrupt in the past, or have been overwhelmed by hyperinflation. The US is not close to either situation though. And honestly, as the world's richest country and sole superpower, who do you think is going to call in US debts? Not even China would, and indeed, the Chinese government has forcefully denied it when there was speculation in the past.

    As for the Israel stuff, plenty of blame to spread all around. Trump's "both sides" argument would really apply here. No angels involved in that mess.

    Personally, I think that Israel should just annex the occupied territories outright, and give the inhabitants citizenship. Not that it would make everyone happy, but it's the de facto situation anyway (for 50 years now) and would at least end the anomalous situation where the Palestinians are basically stateless.

    As to the "might makes right" precedent this would set, well no one's said boo to Putin for annexing the Crimea, right? No one even pretends anymore.

    EDIT: btw I think it's wrong to conflate Israel with Jews. Israel is a secular country with a Jewish identity, but technically it holds all citizens to be equal regardless of race or religion. This includes the Israeli Arabs who form about 1/5 of the population. Jews, on the other hand, are people who follow the Jewish religion, many of whom do not owe allegiance to the state of Israel.

    this seems like a semantics thing. from the jump he played that "unless we can get better terms" card but both sides ran with it. and Trump of course played it up like he was actually out when he wasn't, literally providing #FakeNews.
