US to sell $210m jet fuel to Israel
The Pentagon notified Congress of plans to sell Israel jet fuel valued at up to $US210 million ($A280 million)[.]You don't make this kind of purchase order overnight. More evidence that this assault was planned long before any soldiers were "kidnapped."
"The proposed sale of the JP-8 aviation fuel will enable Israel to maintain the operational capability of its aircraft inventory," the Pentagon's Defense Security Cooperation Agency said in notice required by law.
It said Israel had requested the sale, but did not say when the request was made.
"The jet fuel will be consumed while (Israel's) aircraft (are) in use to keep peace and security in the region" . . .. . . by bombing everything in sight.
It said the sale - which Congress may block if both houses were to enact resolutions rejecting it within 30 days - would not affect the basic military balance in the region.Congress will never block this sale - it's a done deal.
But, more importantly, this shows that the criminal assault on Gaza and Lebanon is a joint operation betweent the US and Israel.
