If we don't support Israel militarily, WWIII erupts immediately.
Ready for that?
Sadly, i think this is somewhat true.
I do not despise Israel as most of the ATS readership here does. I think they do the things they do just like any other country would in their
situation. They are surrounded by hostile countries and must be very hawkish to preserve their national identity and survive as a nation. Eqypt was
until now a moderate state, but now they are turning against Israel as well.
Threat of US intervention in any war against Israel has probably stayed aggressive Arab hands on more than one occation, but i think Hamas, Hezzbolah,
Syria, Lebanon, Iran and now Eqypt will become more bold as US support wanes. This is a very dangerous situation.
A full on attack bringing an existential threat to Israel would in their view necissitate a nuclear response. It has almost happened before.
A mushroom cloud over Damascus would be a very frightening thing indeed, perhaps doing just what the OP stated, ushering in World War 3 and an end to
the world as we know it.
