    Israel interested in two German war ships | Europe | Deutsche Welle | 23.10.2009

    How nice of Germany to be asked to give it for free.

    So many things to say this to article. However, my question is, what do you think is worth $650 Million in return if you were going to give away two warships?

    They're not being "told". And I'm pretty sure that they will still probably be paid. Just not in dollars or Euro's.

    I made the correction, Germany is being asked. However, how would Israel pay Germany? There is seemingly nothing that Israel has that Germany could want other than money.

    Intelligence.

    $650M in intelligence? Without having to expend resources to obtain it? Worth its weight in gold.

    Not exactly sure what kind of information out there is worth $650M that Israel knows but Germany doesn't know. Short of the Formula for Cola-Cola or Immortality, I just don't see any information being worth $650M.

    So possibly you don't know something that one of the worlds preeminent intelligence agencies does. And you're surprised?

    I don't think the internal logic of your statement holds up to well Dogbert.

    That's not my point at all. Yes, Israel has one of the best intelligence agencies in the world. I'm sure that Germany's intelligence agency is nothing to slouch at however. Especially since other agencies share information with one another. However, what kind of information do YOU believe would be worth $650M that Germany doesn't know?

    Personally, I could care less if Germany did give them the ships. What I'm wondering is how much the weapons for the ships would be since we're footing the bill.

    I dunno. I'm not in either the German or Israeli intelligence services.
