Israel to purchase US-made smart bomb kits

OCCUPIED-AL-QUDS: The Israeli air force has decided to buy smart munitions kits from the Chicago-based Boeing aerospace company for an estimated $100 million (euro77 million), Israeli defence officials said on Monday.

The Jerusalem Post daily said the planned purchase was for the Joint Direct Attack Munition, or JDAM, which converts conventional 2,000 pound bombs into satellite-guided, precision weapons. Defence officials said the acquisition was meant to replenish stores used up in last summer’s month long war against the Hezbollah militia in Lebanon and increase future stock levels.

The Jerusalem Post said the purchase would not require Congressional approval, as it was the exercise of a previously approved purchase option. Congress is expected on Monday to receive a preliminary State Department report on whether Israel misused American-made cluster bombs in civilian areas of Lebanon. The New York Times reported over the weekend that the report would say Israel may have violated agreements with the United States by its use of American-supplied cluster munitions during last year’s war. The paper described disagreement among midlevel officials at the Defence Department and the State Department, with some in both departments arguing that Israel violated US prohibitions on using cluster munitions in populated areas. Others in both departments argued that the weapons were used in self-defence to stop Hizbullah rocket attacks and that, at worst, only a technical violation may have occurred.

We already supply them with plenty.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
