    My name is __________ and I work in media relations for Caterpillar.

    Below are some facts that readers may find useful.

    Caterpillar hopes for a peaceful resolution to the unrest in the Middle East, but that solution is a political matter to be worked out by the appropriate parties. Caterpillar does not and should not have a role in that political process.

    The D9 Track-Type Tractors (bulldozers) that get most of the attention are provided to the Israeli government as part of a program administered by the United States government that supports U.S. allies. Other machines are also provided under this U.S. Government program.

    For the U.S. government program, (Foreign Military Sales Program) each transaction is reviewed and approved by the State Department, the Department of Defense and then by Congress.

    This is how it works. Caterpillar sells equipment to the U.S. government, which then transfers the equipment to the Israeli government, which then transfers it to the Israeli military. For the D9s, the protective armor plating, the bullet resistant glass and other modifications take place after the machine has been transferred to the Israeli government by the U.S. government.


    Little is as it seems from what the Main Stream Media tells us, I don't want my tax dollars supporting such attrocities from the Israeli Leaderhip, the hell of it is that this is occuring because of Israeli Lobby AIPAC influence and their dohort organizations money to congressmen for elections and re-elections. OUR GOVERNMENT POLICIES UP FOR SALE.
