    USA has two main choices. First is to accept that Israel will not get peace, and provide unconditional support. US power, while dwindling, can still stop UN and NATO. EU will do sanctions. Israel can trade with China? Sell them oranges? US military equipment? China wants US designs, they'll do their own production. When they have the designs China will stop buying. Iran gets nukes, maybe after an Israeli/US attack. Syria gets nukes. Hard times for Israel. Selah. Or USA can withdraw from Israel. No new military designs to sell. No aid at $1000/citizen. No hidden aid at $7,000/citizen. No sweetheart US military contracts. Arabs make threats. Israel gets desperate. Do they use their poison gas? Their bioweapons? Their nukes? Their cobalt bombs? Very bad for the whole world. Anything inbetween is falling between two stools, worse than either extreme. So the USA should support Israel unconditionally in anything they want to do. It's the best choice. Of course, the future is uncertain.
