    When Israel's foreign ministry decided to trash oldest relationships. If my memory serves me correctly in mid February of last Lieberman got baited like champ, and decided to respond to Syria's saber rattling at a college. Where he threatened that Israel would march to Euphrates and kill Assad along with his family during a future war. Syria responded by openly aligning themselves with Hezbollah. A month later they decided to humiliate Joe Biden by announcing 1,600 new settlements as he affirmed the Israel-US alliance. If that wasn't enough about four days after that the Deputy FM drug the Turkish ambassador on TV, sat him in a child's sized chair, and told the camera this was to humiliate him. Here's the thing, the Obama administration was trying open formal diplomatic ties with Assad as Lieberman made those statements. The US also has a longstanding strategic alliance with the Turks, and has to count on them for a lot of things. While you've forgotten those events happened in rapid succession Obama has not, but that doesn't make his administration exempt from the public duties of an alliance. Because the alliance is with the US, not a particular administration.
