The timing of all this is more than conspicuous, and in some aspects long overdue. What is getting ready to go down, is going to make the 6 day war look like a vacation to WallyWorld with Chevy Chase.
Wait and see......it's gonna happen.
This was timed specifically. It's gonna happen.
I'm less certain that such a fight will extend to Iran, but I have little doubt that Syria will take a pummeling.
Iraq is in between Israel and Iran. Air strikes may be on the horizon, but there's no way we, the U.S., gets away with letting the Israeli army march and tank through Iraq. Plus, how would the Israeli trrops even get through Iraq without being bogged down by miltia skirmishes?
A more likely Israeli spring war is with Syria/Jordan/Lebanon. Especially with the tag team of assassinations this past week.
I just want to see Jordan get its comeuppance. Is there any country that reallt likes those guys?
Israel has kicked Jordan's ass a couple of times haven't they ? I thought Jordan also signed a"peace accord" with Israel, like Egypt did.
Sort of. Israel exists as a pirate state (Balfour be damned) because the Jews under Golda Meir defeated mostly Jordanian forces in 1948, and Jordan was kept out of the Six Days War by strategery on the Israelis' part, but a good toe to toe is over due.
If you would take the e to review the policies of HRH King Abdullah, you would realize that the possibility of Jordan going to war w/ Israel is less than zero.
I am curous, Ed, as to why you wish to see Jordan get its "comeuppance."
Actually, I probably shouldn't have included Jordan in my first list of countries spoiling for an Israeli invasion. Three is a magic number is my excuse. I do stand by calling Israel a pirate state and by my suspicion that Lebamon and Syria will soon be seeing Israeli soldiers.
