#1 Tie it to a TOTAL aid reduction to Saudi, that'll stop it.

#3 IOW, the US can no longer come to Israel's defense because it can no longer economically afford it.
THIS HAS GOT "MUNICH CONFERENCE IN EAST ASIA" WRITTEN ALL OVER IT, VEE THE US-VS-RISING-CHINA.
Another reason why the China-vs-Japan brouhaha over the Senkakus/Daoyus may NOT end well for Amerikka.
GOOD FOR ANTI-US GLOBALISTS + ANTI-US OWG + ANTI-US OWG NAU - ORDINARY AMERICANS + TRADTIONAL NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY, NOT SO MUCH.

#4 some of the military aid to Israel is probably wasteful
however, a lot of it results in real time, real target, tests of weapon systems, both defensive and offensive, which could not be done anywhere else and which is of enormous benefit to the US DOD

#5 Washington should first cut aid to countries with strained ties to America, such as Pakistan and Egypt.....
Kaliphornia, New and Old Mexico.

#6 $3 billion/year? We spend almost that much on Obama per year. Cut aid to Obama--fewer golf games in Hawaii and fewer perks. No more expensive trips for FLOTUS, don't take the kid to Mexico for a trip, cut the pay of the dog handler--it is about #102,000/year. Let the kids take care of the dog. It is good training for them. Obama can use Camp David more--it is closer to D.C. Pull the kids out of Sidwell and send them to public school. Obama has said how much he thinks of public schools in public statements. I'll bet we can get that $2 billion down to a range of 1/2-1 bn.
