They almost lost Yom Kippur War because the Russians armed / aided the enemy.

I also hope the U.S. and Israel don't go to war, either. I think, if that happened, Israel would nuke the U.S. over it before Russia would nuke the U.S. for meddling in Ukraine. They could just claim that anyone who didn't like being nuked by Israel was "anti-semitic."
Lol this is a joke. Israel nuke the U.S. Hahaha let me be very clear, that will never happen and in the event that we dissolve our big brother protection for Israel and they decide to go to war against us, it won't even take a week to destroy the entire Israel. Ey won't be able to even deploy those helicopters we are allowing them to use or the weapons we provide them or the funds we give th... Lol this is just laughable on so many levels.

They fear Iran of all countries and yet you think they'd have the gull to "go to war with the US" give me a break. War is something no human/country should want or look forward to but in the event it happens, the world is aware that we are a massive force to reckon with. Don't ever underestimate our might. Israel nuke the U.S lol. Very funny

The Black Hawks and Apaches that Israel has they bought from the U.S. so the notion that we are only allowing them to use them as if it is just on loan is false. Yes Israel bought some weapons from the U.S but don't think that all the weapons they have are American. They make plenty of their own weapons and have for awhile now been switching over more and more to their own weapons. Like the IDF has ditched the M-16 completely now and use the Tavor. Yes we give Israel funds but you shouldn't say that as if they couldn't survive without it. Also Israel is not afraid of Iran, they simply want to prevent said country from attaining a nuke.

I agree it is crazy to think Israel would nuke the U.S. but speaking as someone that was in the military not too long ago I can tell you should be worried because the military strength we once had we do not have anymore. The military is /has been getting smaller, experienced leaders still getting pink slips and plenty equipment not replaced.

Israel already bombed Iraq (1981,1982) & Syria (2007) and destroyed both country's nuclear programs. There is no reason they won't do it again with Iran though I do believe this will be considerably more difficult for them to pull off. Iran is no pushover like those other two countries.

I agree. It would take a much bigger effort on Israel and be ready for if hezbollah start to fire some rockets
