US pledges Israel to maintain its military superiority in the region

The United States will continue its efforts to maintain Israel's quality military superiority in the Middle East. This was stated by the head of the US State Department Mike Pompeo.


Speaking on Monday in Jerusalem at a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Pompeo assured the Israeli leader that despite the conclusion of deals with the UAE for the supply of modern weapons, the United States will continue to maintain Israel's military superiority in the Middle East.

The United States has a legal obligation to maintain high-quality military superiority (Israel - approx.). We will continue to respect them (commitments - approx.)

- he said.

Note that Washington has accelerated the course of negotiations with the UAE on the supply of fifth-generation F-35 fighters and "advanced" drones. According to the available information, this deal is not included in the conditions under which the UAE has normalized relations with Israel. In turn, Jerusalem made it clear that the agreement on the normalization of relations between Israel and the UAE does not contain a clause on the consent of the Jewish state to a deal to sell the American weapons United Arab Emirates.

The US has made it clear to Israel that it will always see to it that its quality advantage is maintained. Netanyahu has always opposed the sale of the F-35 and other modern weapons to any, except Israel, states of the Middle East, including Arab countries maintaining diplomatic relations with Israel.

- stated in the office of the Israeli prime minister.

Recall that the United States pledged to ensure that Israel retains its military-technological superiority in the region after the Yom Kippur War in October 1973.

    The stick has 2 ends of Pompeo! If the stick is the main thing, you always get a stick in the head at the end. Dull as a hammer, and as such, the United States will have a bleak future.

          I disagree. The United States is far ahead of the rest of the world in almost everything. They are absolutely resource-independent - they have everything, oil and gas, and so on. Technologically - no one will even come close to them - all the latest and most advanced electronics are American. In space, they are out of competition - the closest competitor - Russia - is eating up the last Soviet legacy.
          The "racial" graters that periodically appear there are sheer nonsense and cannot lead to any serious shocks. If it bothers - blacks - only 12% of the US population - white boys with trunks, if necessary, will quickly send the dissatisfied to Liberia and other countries from where the ancestors of modern advocates of electoral equality were taken out 300 years ago.

          As for the merits of Russia in the "collapse" of the United States. If you speak English, check out American news and analytical resources - Russia is hardly mentioned there. Rarely. Russia as a country in no way worries the United States as a country.

    The US has made it clear to Israel that it will always see to it that its quality advantage is maintained.

    I remember that VO discussed this topic. Then the Israeli guys "proved" that Israel's defense industry does not depend on the United States. That they are allocating too little funds, only 38 billion for 10 years.

      Israel has a strong military-industrial complex. But the dependence on the US military-industrial complex is also great. Many joint developments. Israel pays for military financial aid indirectly - with military patents and technologies. This is beneficial to the United States.

      Israel's budget is approximately $ 100 billion per year. $ 3 billion, which goes to the purchase of exclusively American weapons - this is such an opportunity for the US government to subsidize its defense industry. Of course, this is a great help for the Israeli defense budget, but it is not critical. Of course Israel does not produce airplanes, but a lot of things could be bought in Israel itself much cheaper and supported by a local manufacturer.

                  Again, Turkey voted FOR and no gingerbread from the Russian Federation will move it from this position. Albania FOR , and Israel, without any show-off, did not support the resolution. That's it. And there's nothing to turn up the snout here. Remember, it's always good to have a little friend at the UN. Because in such polls, the voice of kids, for example, Micronesia, Israel, or Nauru, weighs as much as the voice of any giant country.

      Has Russia ever refused to supply arms to Israel's neighbors out of fear of US sanctions? I don’t remember. C300 supplies to Iran? So this is a worldwide arms embargo.

        S-300 Iran did not fall under the sanctions, it was Medvedev who then trudged. And it's not just about Russia - everyone is scared.
        And one more nuance: no one wants to supply Israel's neighbors with weapons for free, everyone wants to sell. And the US is "helping" Israel. Actually, as a protege of the States, he exists. Everyone understands that this does not last forever, but so far no one can change anything. While. And when the hegemon grunted, Israel will remember EVERYTHING! Perhaps it will not be in our lifetime, but it will be so.

    Some peacekeepers to others, they promised peace at the tip of a bayonet! !
    Now the Israeli comrades will swoop in and will convince everyone that they are doves of peace, everyone offends them, everyone attacks them .............. laughing wink lol
