This was also the case leading up to the Iraq war. We all know that American politicians are very respnsive to Israel's demands, but we don't know why. Is it worth a few trillion dollars, a few thousand American deaths, and hundreds of thousands of dead Iranians to put smiles on the faces of Israelis? It is not possible to keep Israelis happy for long. They work too hard at making enemies. There is always the next "worst enemy" of Israel that America must deal with.
