If it weren't for the great sacrifices and courage, of America's soldiers, freedom and democracy would have ceased to exist anywhere on this earth. Even today, Americans are sacrificing life and limb in Iraq in an almost impossible attempt to bring an increase in freedom and democracy to the Middle East. That said, almost every time that the US has coerced Israel into adopting a plan that US bureaucrats feel is the proper way for Israel to manage it's own affairs, it has ALWAYS backfired and made the Israel/Palestine conflict worse. Israel doesn't need "trial and error" experiments from the US. Israel just needs the US to stand firm, with Israel, in Israel's battle against vicious, inhuman, immoral Islamic terrorists.
