Americans becoming Israelis to serve in Israel's military

The NY Times reports on U.S. citizens adopting Israeli citizenship and becoming recruits in the Israeli army.  As the piece suggests, this is a very well-funded program, but I was struck by how uninquisitive the piece seemed to be.
A number of readers have referred to my 2006 entry Americans Serving in the Israeli Army--What is their status in U.S. law?  Several of the comments are particularly noteworthy.
If readers have any comparative data referring to U.S. citizens joining other foreign militaries, I would be grateful.
