    with almost every western country already adamantly opposed to the israeli settlement enterprise. the more brash and defiant these settlers and their benefactors become, the more the world sentiment will harden against them. the u.s. veto in the unsc is NOT invincible, and given time, it's sure to be overridden if this fiasco continues unchecked... and that's IF the u.s. is still inclined to utilize its veto. it just may surprise everyone, or it may withold its vote, or it may veto as always, but then refrain from soliciting, pressuring, cajoling, and leveraging its friends against overriding it. the settlers, more than anything else, are eventually going to bring sanctions against israel. their's is a double-edged sword with one edge slashing at the state of israel, and the other at themselves.
