The U.S. finger on the scale

It isn't enough that the U.S. has provided Israel with nearly $100 billion worth of military aid over the years, including planes, helicopters, and missiles. No, the U.S. has to do its best to rub it in. This from the Guardian (via Billmon):
In the midst of last Friday's onslaught, in which Israeli bombers killed dozens of Lebanese civilians, the Pentagon announced the export of $210m of aviation fuel to help Israel "keep peace and security in the region".
"Why do 'they' hate us?" Gee, I just can't imagine.
