Going back to the "Clean Break" paper the Neocons wrote for the previous Netanyahu government, it is clear he has been joined a the hip to those elements in the Republican Party. However, it is difficult to know who is in charge, the Neocons or the Likud, of Israeli foreign policy. Israel has certainly followed the Neocons Neoliberal economic policy, But the Neocons tried to imitate Israel's use of reserves in their wars, in America's involvement in Iraq. However, Israel has a small population and is forced to rely on the reserves, and they cannot hold any ground in foreign countries. The Neocons use American Reserve units because they wanted to conduct the war on the cheap,and give the wealthy tax breaks. As for Israel, they have to waste their money on Boeing's missile defense system that is worthless, so they could tie themselves to American power,which the Neocons trashed. Whoever is in charge. They are clueless!
