    Sunny,

    I don’t mean to be flippant, but Israel…?

    It seems to me that the USA is aleady considering the illuminated parking lot and the words they have to say to justify it. These are the dog days of a dead President. What has he to lose?

    think it will happen because israel will not tolerate any neighbouring nuclear powers which will tilt the balance of power in the region, hence the attack on iraqs facilities in 1981.
    war will happen because there is a build up of extremes, on either sidde of the fence.
    Unfortunately any major me conflict is likely to pull the rest of the world in and the involvement of nukes is worrying to say the least
