I have thought the same for quite some time. The RAF, in particular, was rebuilding and in no shape for war. Also (listen up, "Judah ben hur"!), 1938 is not 2010. Israel is not France/Britain, Iran is not Germany and the occupied territories are not the Sudetenland. The ever quoted (by the right) line about those who "...ignore history...bound to repeat it..." is drivel. Players change, dynamics change, alliances change, etc. etc.
