Obama and American elites must cut back on military and security budget, and stop sending US taxpayer money to support Israel if they want to give the US administration and nation a chance to survive, Maj. Gen. Firouzabadi said.
“Obama and his aides must make the right decision before it gets too late,” he concluded.
