Since your response had nothing to do with the question, I will ask it again.

"Fact one: the rules of engagement and other that limits the US military started and largely were made under Ragaen. "

And just who did you hear this one from?

FJep:

The origins if LOAC and other rules governing the professional behavior of soldiers were started under Reagons professional soldier initiatives. It was in part how he down sized the military, by pushing out anyone who makes the smallest mistakes.

Case in point, a parking ticket on post in loring AFB (SAC BASE) could get most (E-1 to E-5s) canned and thrown out for failure to obey standing orders. (a parking ticket on a SAC base)

Now that SAC is gone, there are still a great many rules that limit the soldiers effectiveness, at stress release when off mission. Then you factor in the laws like LOAC and other Rules of engagement... The soldier would be so afraid to shoot that they aren't likely to shoot... Or they will intentionally miss and shoot the ground

Do you realize how much the Russians and Chinese hate each other? And for how long?

Not going to see them locking hands to defeat US. MAYBE one would cozy up to the US the take out their neighbor....

Just:

Fact one: the rules of engagement and other that limits the US military started and largely were made under Ragaen.

Fact two: Ragaen committed some of the deepest cuts to the military that there ever was.

Fact three: at best the US could draft 70 million people by throwing out all disability limitations... China alone can draft that many to attract our forces on the ground... Then supported by their knock off F-22 they would give us a massive kiddny shot... Which Russia would finish what the Chinese chose to leave behind.

Giving Isreal tech is one thing, going to war is another. We can not drier fight any war Isreal becomes involved in, without the Russians and Chinese becoming directly involved. And anyone thinking that the US can win vs the Russian and Chinese forces is smoking something stronger than pot.

Neither the Russians if Chinese are bound by rules if engagement which are binding... Only the US and most if our allies are so bound. Further if the russians don't nuke our forces, the war will be fought at first with high tech... Until all of our over priced stealth craft have broken down or been destroyed.

Reality sucks, but reality is that we can't take on two major powers at the same time... Nor should we be going to war without the will to commit genicid. Reason being, it is the only way to have a lasting peace... The knowledge that if our enemies dont surrender, their entire people will end.

Obviously I can't read what the person who began this thread is writing but I want to contribute this:

IF she is saying that the IOC should have a memorial of the '72 massacre I have to heartily agree with you Wayne.

"It's time for Jews to to stop peddling the Holocaust and go forward" said my uncle the rabbi 20 years or more ago. My grandmother passed in 1968 and I vividly remember me asking her about her 'numbers' on her forearm. She would say "never mind about that, go play". It was my uncle who explained to me that "she want's to go forward in life, not back".

Don't get me wrong, there are lot's like the OP in my family too and damn militant about Israel they are, but the younger ones think it's time to move on and be done with the guilt peddling. I agree.

Honor these athletes we lost in a tragic event in 1972 as you see fit, but it has no place officially insinuated into the Olympic games themselves.

Providing military aid to Israel is in US's interest. Most people have zero concept of how aid to Israel works, unfortunately.
