Israel, US to Discuss Military Drills


Hewitt from the headline in the times of Israel this morning. Israel U.S. to discuss military drills to prep for worst case Iran scenario. The story includes this line, a Wednesday report said the Israeli defense forces will hold a large scale exercise over the Mediterranean in the spring with dozens of aircraft simulating a strike against Iran's nuclear program.

Customer has been running after the merchant of the merchant running that's the customer. And running simply ratchet up the price every time. Did you see what they do
