Israel won't do anything unless provoked, however Iran may well want them dragged into the conflict...which is a possible escalation.<quoted text>Hopefully it's all brinksmanship on President Obumbles part.
Christ, the Israelis endure rocket fire near daily. So when they see one of their O so friendly neighbors currently using them(chems) it's no wonder they go for masks.
They do, on the other hand seem to know what and when to hit these various nutter regimes with more than just diplomacy.
I'm glad we're staying out of it, but never mind you still have the French and the Turks...will you be changing your "freedom" fries back to French fries any time soon?
