Places where Jews have not been expelled...... Israel.

IsraHell was getting its ass kicked in 1973, in fear of total annihilation in the Yom Kippur war.
Oil was $3 a barrel then.
Nixon was begged to intercede and involve us in yet another one of Israels wars.
Billions of arms were sent with advisors et al. Our reward? OPEC. Oil overnight went up 10 fold to $33.
USA useds 20 million barrels per day = instant hyperinflation.
Do the math. Trillions spent on the Marxist Hellhole state aka Israel in our 1 sides Monica Lewinsky type relationship with that abomination.
Our Founding Fathers were very clear..NO ENTANGLING ALLIANCES!!

Nuclear Weapons and the US Air Lift.
On the third day, during the night of October 8-9, Minister of Defence, Moshe Dayan told PM Gold Meir that "this is the end of the third temple." It may be that the ammunition and weapon stocks were extremely low. Israel may have considered a nuclear option. On October 9 U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told the Israelis, "The President [Nixon] has agreed - and let me repeat this formally - that all your aircraft and tank losses will be replaced."
The airlift was successful thanks to the co-operation of Portugal.

Gunther wrote:Despite the conventional wisdom that Israel was surprised by the attack that did eventually come, the truth is that the Israelis began to prepare for battle on October 5. But like U.S. intelligence officials, Israeli analysts were skeptical about the threat of war.
Gunther wrote:At 5:00 a.m., General David Elazar, the chief of staff, first recommended a full, immediate mobilization of forces and a preemptive air strike. He was overruled. A few hours later, a partial call-up of reserves was approved, but Prime Minister Golda Meir still refused to authorize Elazar to take military action. She advised the U.S. ambassador of the situation and asked him to pass on the message that the Arabs should be restrained.
What, the Egyptians had Ruskie tanks and advisors? No wonder they lost. Bad equipment and bad tactics.Gunther wrote:Vinogradov dispels the idea of surprise: in his view, both the canal crossing by the Egyptians and the inroads by Sharon were planned and agreed upon in advance by Kissinger, Sadat and Meir. The plan included the destruction of the Syrian army as well.
At first, he asks some questions: how the crossing could be a surprise if the Russians evacuated their families a few days before the war?
Umm, cause they were stupid? Felt they had to go wail a little and bring their little prayer blankets to the battle? Saw the Israelis eye to eye and lost their nerve?Gunther wrote:The concentration of the forces was observable and could not escape Israeli attention. Why did the Egyptian forces not proceed after the crossing but stood still? Why did they have no plans for advancing?
Gunther wrote:Why there was a forty km-wide unguarded gap between the 2d and the 3d armies, the gap that invited Sharon’s raid? How could Israeli tanks sneak to the western bank of the Canal? Why did Sadat refuse to stop them? Why were there no reserve forces on the western bank of the Canal?
