    The US helped Germany and japan after first bombing them to rubble and winning the war. This policy has proven to be very successful as opposed to drawn out limited wars of restraint. It is not imporrtant to win the minds and hearts of the enemy before vanquishing them. The reason Israel does not win it's war is because it is one of restraint. Disproportionate, merciless and ruthless responses to acts of belligerency is what will win the war. Saddam did not win the hearts and minds of Iraquis and now these same pussycats are uncontrollable under the US. As Osama Bin Laden observed "People favour the strong horse". Everyone knows the US is leaving Iraq so it is the weak horse. Everyone knows that Israel will accept attacks and reply with restraint so there is nothing to fear. If Israel instead responded like a mad, rabid dog there would be more caution when attempting to kill jews.
