Egypt still couldn't compete with Israel in a military conflict.
I wouldn't be so sure about that statement, were talking about a population of 90 million people, of which 35+ million are fit for Service and over a
million active military personal currently serving, just based on numbers alone, Israel would be dwarfed, if Egypt called full on war, and crossed the
boarder, Israeli's better start panicking.
Yet undoubtedly, the IDF have more trained and intelligent personnel.
Underestimating your enemy has been the death of many a man and army.
Whats makes you so sure Egypt are not as well trained and intelligent as the IDF.
Egypt also has a large naval force, and without america's full military support, you would be terribly outmanned and outgunned.
That's my educated opinion.

It is very easy for us blab off about how strong ones military may be or not be. But the reality here is that many people are about to die. It is not
the first time this has happened, as you know. Could it be the last or one of the last though?
Is it time that the words like: innocence, restraint, compassion, neutrality be tossed asides and this whole mess be sorted out right now?,
30,000 troops have been called up. She (IDF) was already on a military footing, as they have been for so long.
This is the perfect context to:
Capitalize on the absurdly ridiculous actions of Hamas.
Get the ball rolling, mass some troops, kick the pot, stir the bee's
Because you know they will, wait for the muslims around them to get all worked up. Huffing and puffing.
Wait for another brilliant government,like Iran or Syria, or their new pals in the area The Brotherhood, to yap off out of turn or make the fatal
error to get involved militarily.
Go after it, diss arm or kill anyone with a weapon. With the USA's help of course.
Hey??????? isn't that whats already happening?
