If you take just a second to think about it, that means that U.S. workers are creating bombs to drop on Lebanon. Next add in the tax dollars that are used to subsidize,overpay, and keep the arms companies in business. I wonder how many people out there realize that they are working 40+ hours a week, barely scraping by to pay their mortgage and expenses, paying their taxes like good citizens, and the money that comes out of their checks is actually being used to bomb what some are saying are civilian targets in a country that is not at war with the U.S. in any sense. Does Johnny Paycheck realize what he is paying for? I doubt it.

The munitions are actually part of a multimillion-dollar arms-sale package approved last year which Israel is able to tap when it needs to, the officials told the Times. But some military officers said the request for expedited delivery was unusual and indicated that Israel has many targets it plans to hit in Lebanon.
