Conventional wisdom suggests that US-Israel ties constitute a one-way-street: The US gives and Israel receives. However, in recent years the one-way-street has been transformed into a two-way-street, mutually-beneficial, win-win set of ties:

1.  US special operations units trained in Israel before arrival to Iraq and Afghanistan; 2.  Israel armor plating technology protects US soldiers; 3.  Israel is a cost-effective, battle-tested laboratory for the US defense industries; 4.  Israel provides the US more intelligence than all NATO countries combined; 5.  US battle tactics formulated according to the Israeli playbook; 6.  Israel is a strategic beachhead of the US in the Middle East; 7.  Israel is the largest US aircraft carrier, which doesn’t require a single US boot on board;


Israel is the only stable, reliable, predictable, capable, democratic and unconditional ally of the US, willing to flex its muscle.
