The Wages of Weakness
More Hawk Talk out of Israel

    Let’s not be foolish and over-interpret every little thing going on or not going on in Israel. There’s virtually nothing new in this news item. Pep-talk to high school students is not a declaration of war.

      But public talk like this ends Israel’s 15-year deference to the US on this matter. Israel will figure out whatever is in its interest and do it. The US, including the empty suit in the White House, will learn of it like the rest of us, on the news.

        Sort of. But for the past 2+ years Israeli ground forces have operated extensively in Lebanon and Syria and they didn’t ask for US green light. They just allowed the Americans to know about these ops. IDF relations with the US are very.. weird. Not as much trust as you would think.

    Can Israel pull anything significant off?
