Israel To Washington: Bitch, Give Me My Money

An excerpt from, "Israel Wants US to Front Them Future Military Aid for More Weapons," by Jason Ditz:
The Israeli Defense Ministry is calling it a “bridge loan,” but in reality it is tantamount to when a child wants a couple of weeks advance on their allowance to buy something.

The Defense Ministry is seeking to buy $5 billion worth of weapons and wants the US government to “guarantee” the amount so that US commercial banks will front them the additional cash on the assumption it will eventually be covered by future US aid.
