Indeed that is quite a problem. But I'm sure the Americans have one hell of a lot of fire power on their warships, and i'm not in possession of all facts, but probably a few war planes? Wouldn't be surprised if the Americans begin bombing with the Israelis.
Also, with the British bases on Cyprus, wouldnt surprise me if they join in, as patrols could be launched from there?
