"Israeli-U.S. relations are in terrible shape. Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Obama had a bad meeting this month. During the Gaza operation, for the first time, missile shipments didn’t go through automatically.
The issue of Hellfire missiles has been solved. It was a bureaucratic issue.
It doesn’t look like an unbreakable bond if, in the middle of a war, the administration decides to review what has always been military-to-military arms transfers.
I can tell you that between the Pentagon and the Israel Defense Forces there is an unbreakable bond.
What about the politicians?
We have disputes." Weymouth in the Post
"An unbreakable bond?" There should be no unbreakable bonds between countries. Countries exist to promote the interests of the state and its citizens. Is Yalon saying that there are bureacrats in OSD who have been placed there and well dug-in so as to insure that Israel's interests will always be served no matter how offensive and arrogant Israel's policy and actions may be? pl
