On February 26 Israel and Jordan signed an partnership agreement to build a pipeline to bring water from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea as well as build a desalination plant in the Gulf of Aqaba.

Proves once again that it is all lies when the Palestinians and Islamic radicals claim that Israel’s existence causes the violence in the Middle East. Work with the Israelis, and your lives will improve. Hate them, and everyone’s lives gets worse. Apparently Jordan’s leadership understands this.

    Good God, Bob, ….you’re looking to the Los Angeles Times for a balanced view of Missile Defense????? They’re quoting the NAS which views BMD and DoD in general as a direct competitor for Federal Money, …and that didn’t trip a switch of caution? They’re quoting people placed into the MDA by the Obama Administration, which was determined to gut BMD, yet again, to placate the Great Russia faction in the Kremlin, before they ever got into the WH, and that rang no bells for you?

    They cut the multiple interceptor program even as the cost and processing ability of the electronics that paced the concept continued to improve, because by threatening Russia warheads competently it would threaten to undo the ability of the Great Russia faction to say Russia is still a “great power”, instead of an oil-based rentier State like Saudi Arabia. They were convinced that would have aborted their “reset button” strategy, …which aborted, in fact, when the Russians considered the ploy “unserious”.

  • The LA Times might not be a completely reliable source, but when it comes to the government wasting big gobs of money on projects that end up going nowhere (SLS comes to mind, but so do dozens of others over the past three decades), I will always tend to consider such stories more likely true than false.
