There seems to be a lot of hotheads in charge of Israel these days. Can't they get some less aggressive people in charge over there. I wonder what their own citizens think of their leaders obsession with war.
Seems like a trend.
The Gaza bombing was in reply to a rocket attack on southern Israel.
The Syria bombing was to destroy Russian made, Iranian-supplied weapons en route to Hezbollah.
That taken into account... can't say I blame them.
I'd think of Gaza as just another day in the Middle East and ..well? It's Israel. What would we expect?
Syria on the other hand ... Hey... One of these days, Assad might just take them up on this and call it what it clearly is. It's not a "surgical strike" or a "preemptive measure". It's an open act of war. Syria's been mighty tolerant so far, but as they are ditching their WMD, they might get real offended that Israel isn't showing appreciation for such an effort and start returning some favors.
What is Netanyahu doing? TRYING to start a war?? What if he succeeds and we just stay home?edit on 1-11-2013 by Wrabbit2000 because: (no reason given)
Never-the-less this is not idealized but real time reactions of countries. They don't have all the facts beforehand and if they hold action until they do it may be too late.
