    Lol @ saywhat and banasy. I was thinking more along the lines of Israel sending in a sniper force. They have been the ones stirring the warpot havent they? And they are the "know all, be all" of civilization they need to show what they've really got. But then again our military is ALREADY standing ready to invade Syria so maybe they should make it short and sweet and just take that punk Assad out.

    Wish you and other friends would also read Uri Avnery's "Cry my beloved Egypt".
    He and Paul Craig don't need an introduction.

    Let Israel take any and all action, since they want this so badly. The US takes to much heat for other nation's lack of action.

    Agreed @ banasy! And they have been working overtime to suck us into one war or another for quite some time.
