Israel seeks exemption from atomic rules

"Israel is looking...for an exemption to non-proliferation rules so it can legally import atomic material, according to documents made available Tuesday to The Associated Press."

Why should they get an exemption? It appears clearer and clearer that the U.S. doesn't care about containing "nuclear proliferation," they just want to control to whom it is proliferated.

I really don't understand your inability to use common sense to distinguish our allies from those hostile to US interests. Or do you believe in some sort of universal "fairness".

If you believe it to all be "fair", I guess I understand where you are coming from.

Is it fair that you are smarter, and make more money than your neighbors? Perhaps you should give them your exess over the average.

The founding fathers told us to beware of entangling alliances. I think our relationship with Israel is one where we are witnessing the wisdom of this view. There can be a big downside to favoring certain countries.
There's no special fairness logic. When we are hypocritical and inconsistent in our principles in dealing with other countries, there will be distrust, anger, and blowback.
For a simple solution to this, listen to Ron Paul.
