Although the policy was in place from earily in Israel's life, the USA Arms relationship took off with Nixon and Kissinger. We helped to provide the qualitative advantage over Arab armies to reduce the Risk of defeat to nearly zero; but Israel didn't do its job: Make peace with its neighbors. With the delay in the peace process, there little incentive for USA to maintain this qualitative advantge for Israel at USA's own reduce security. It's a new middle east and these Israeli-Palestinians issues are the old middle east-- or the core conflict. Stop milking the USA and make peace.
