The premise of the piece that the US is ordinarily a strategic burden to Israel is of course wrong and stupid. There are many times the US has acted against Israeli interests through the years, but if one were to judge the situation on the whole it is still true that the US is Israel's only real friend, and supporter , often at the cost of its own isolation. But in regard to Iran, where Eldar thinks the US is wise for now negotiating with someone who is working to wipe Israel from the map, the US may be on the way to doing nothing, and thus throwing Israel in. This is up in the air. But the Bush Administration's failure to see the Iran danger earlier, its failure to understand Iraq was about the price of oil, are not good signs. Nor is the fact that we have leading this country people with no deep experience of military operations.
