The world just keeps getting stranger. We’ve all seen Israel getting attacked with rockets launched by their enemies. We’ve also seen the effectiveness of the Iron Dome. It’s the anti-rocket defense system. How many lives have been saved by that? Who wouldn’t want Israel to be able to defend itself? Thought that was a no-brainer. Right? …Wrong. This is where it gets weird and a bit depressing.
The U.S. puts out some serious bucks to help Israel with the Iron Dome. That’s cool. They’re our ally. That’s one of the perks for being cool with Uncle Sam. Well now that a new funding bill is being worked out in the form of a CR (continuing resolution) it seems some people on the left don’t want to help out with the Iron Dome.
The CR has been revised with the Iron Dome provision taken out.
The far-left members leading this effort have been Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) cannot have any opposition in her party if she hopes to pass anything due to her thin majority in the House.
Wow. That’s jacked up. We invite you to read more about this craziness here. It’s a hell of thing to do to one of our closest allies. Total dick move.
