    It looks so good on you. It does rather get spoilt tho, if you should end up with egg on your face as a result.... Bob: "This time there is no Soviets, and Israel would not be stopped 40 miles short of Damascus" The IDF is not the army it was in 1967, Bob. Not even close. It is a flabby, lazy, and brutal army of occupation. That's what it has been doing for 40 years, and that is how it has been trained. MY prediction is that if it attempts to lunge towards Damascus it'll stall very soon after moving out of its starting blocks, and will have to resort to massive air bombardment to try and cover its lack of progress. The IDF ain't any good, Bob. It *thinks* it is, and it has convinced all the zionists that it is, but I think it would be very lucky to be able to fight its way out of a paper bag. Read up on Sparta, Bob, and how cocky they were before they faced up to Thebes. Got the shock of their lives when the Theben army kicked its ass, and never got over it.
