China is best described as totalitarian, not really communist anymore. It's economics have morphed into fascism.

Other benefits of being allies with Israel:

During the Israeli-Egyptian War of Attrition, Israeli commandos captured a Soviet-built P-12 radar station in an operation code-named Rooster 53. Previously-unknown information was subsequently shared with the U.S.

In 1966, when defecting Iraqi pilot Munir Redfa landed in Israel flying a Soviet-built MiG-21 fighter jet, information on the plane was immediately shared with the United States.

In 1981, Weinberger and Israeli Minister of Defense Ariel Sharon signed Strategic Cooperation Agreement, establishing a framework for continued consultation and cooperation to enhance the national security of both countries. In November 1983, the two sides formed a Joint Political Military Group, which meets twice a year, to implement most provisions of that agreement. Joint air and sea military exercises began in June 1984, and the United States constructed two War Reserve Stock facilities in Israel to stockpile military equipment. Although intended for American forces in the Middle East, the equipment can be transferred to Israeli use if necessary.

On October 21, 2005, it was reported that pressure from Washington Israel froze a major contract with Venezuela to upgrade its 22 US manufactured F16 fighter jets. Israel requested permission to continue with the deal at a later date, but has not received a response from the US thus far.

Israel has more companies listed on the NASDAQ than any country outside North America.

One facet of the U.S.-Israel strategic relationship is the joint development of the Arrow Anti-Ballistic Missile Program. Designed to intercept and destroy ballistic missiles. This development is funded by both Israel and the United States. The Arrow has also provided the U.S. with the research and experience necessary to develop additional weapons systems.

In April 1996, President Bill Clinton and Prime Minister Shimon Peres signed the U.S.-Israel Counter-terrorism Accord. The two countries agreed to further cooperation in information sharing, training, investigations, research and development and policy-making.

Russia likes to fuck with us every now and then but they do not want to get into the world police business, they would rather let us do it. Like China they are more interested in making money.

China will not get involved in any war unless there is something in it for them. They are into making money not spending it. Yea odd for communists.

Israel has long been America 's biggest strategic bargain. Let's examine some facts.:

For FY2009, U.S. military grants to Israel was $2.55 billion. Since Israel's GDP in 2009 was $199B, total U.S. aid to Israel was merely 1.28 percent of its GDP. Viewed over the five year period of 2005–2009—total U.S. military aid was approximately $12B.

Total exports from the U.S. to Israel between 2005 and 2009 amounted to $57.6B—almost five times the $12B Israel received in U.S. aid during this period. The annual average of U.S. exports to Israel during this period was $11.7B, more than five times the average American aid package!

U.S. military aid to Israel creates a demand for, and the purchase of, tens of billions of dollars worth of U.S. weaponry by Saudi Arabia and other Arab states. U.S. grants to Israel - far from imposing a burden on the American tax payer—actually enriches the American economy.

According to Gen.George Keegan, between 1974 and 1990, Israeli aid to America was worth between $50–80B in intelligence, research, development savings, and Soviet weapons systems captured and transferred to the Pentagon, and testing Soviet military doctrines up to 1990 when the USSR collapsed.

Senator Daniel Inouye put it this way: "The contribution made by Israeli intelligence to America is greater than that provided by all NATO countries combined."

I seriously doubt either China or Russia will be involved in a direct war with the US at any time in the forseeable future. Everyone has way too much to lose.

War will not break out with Russia, highly unlikely. China I doubt, unless we get in a scrap with Pakistan. We get anywhere close to the China border in a war with Pakistan and we will be fighting Chinese.

I'm not talking about Israel specifically Sweet, I'm talking about isolationism, Israel can handle Iran, Militarily Israel outranks Iran. The problem is the air refueling and how to get there. I'm talking about, isolationism, which seems to me that you're advocating based on your father's words. I'm trying to explain to you, that we can not live isolated in today's day and age, those days are gone, over, they don't even exist in history books ;).
