I don't see support for Israel as the primary motivation for US action in Iraq, Syria, Libya, etc. The First Gulf War was primarily fought on behalf of Kuwait, and the membership of many anti-Israel states, such as Saudi Arabia, in the coalition evidences that support for Israel was not the primary factor. The second Gulf War was over WMDs or something like that, though a love for senseless invasions seems to have been the primary factor. The US had had a desire for vengeance against Ghadaffi since the Reagan era, given his sponsorship of terrorism, so that didn't have much to do with Israel either, and of course we're involved in Syria because of ISIS, which never posed much of a threat to Israel, but did launch a number of successful attacks in the west.
