It has been well-publicized that it is the US who is footing the bill for the Iron Dome. Oh, but, don't think for a moment that it's coming from some feeling of kinship or kindness hiding somewhere deep in their black hearts. They stand to benefit richly from it. And as long as Israelis think that this is what is saving them, all the US has to do to bring this operation to a premature end (as they do every single time) is threaten to cut off the money. No money, no iron dome.
They have used this kind of blackmail all over the world. It's the same method used by drug pushers. Here, try this - for free. And once the person is addicted, now comes the bill. Pay up - or else. It takes a monumentally strong person to overcome an addiction. It will take a mighty strong nation to say "No!" to the United States, especially if it means also saying "bye-bye" to the Iron Dome - our US Protector.
