    J: "(all of which constitute acts of war)" And not a one on your list is an act of war... 1) Nasser said he was closing the strait to Israeli shipping WHERE IT ENTERED EGPYPTIAN TERRITORIAL WATERS. He was perfectly entitled to do that, seeing as how he was the sovereign 'n' all... 2) UN peacekeeping force always stay AT THE REQUEST OF THE COUNTRY THAT HOSTS THEM. Remove that consent, and the peacekeepers *must* leave. REMOVING that consent is not an "act of war", but an assertion of "sovereignty".... 3) The Sinai is Egyptian territory, and he was the sovereign; he can move troops whereever he wanted WITHIN his own sovereign soil, and if that violates an agreement then all he has done is VIOLATED AN AGREEMENT, not START A WAR. Israel started the Six Day War, Jonathon. I can even give you the exact time: 7:45am, June 5, 1967.
