    i find it amazing how, in the middle of a losing war against isis, general dempsey, and his boss in the white house, can find the time for him to travel to israel for these warm and fuzzy photo-ops? with their strategy visibly failing, and thousands of innocent people being slaughtered and enslaved, their top priority is still to reassure israel that america is looking out for israel’s interests.

    to quote a well-work cliche, “show me, don’t tell me”.

    Dear General Dempsey,

    There is no doubt that the US military, and for that matter the US Congress, is/are well aware and fully understands the plight of Israel and her security concerns. The problem is not with the US military/Congress, but rather with the US president who is an anti-Israel and pro terrorist states like Iran. He fully intends to allow Iran nuclear weapons because they will not have them until after his watch. By then, he believes that his so called legacy will be in tact because he has something to show for his failed presidency. In order to stop the Iran nuclear fiasco, we need to write and convince our Congress to do all in their power to ensure that they squash any Iran deal or at least postpone and delay until this president is out of office. Please write Congress as often as you can.
