CJK: "Obama plans to send in the marines?" Most unlikely but, if he did, I'd have no doubt that the US marines would wipe the floor with Israel's rag-tag rabble of an army. CJK: "However, he cannot force Israel to do anything concrete. He cannot force any evacuations or even building in Jerusalem." Spoken like a true Afrikaaner, Cipora. They spoke just as tough, until the day they folded like a cheap poker player..... Listen, Cippie, if Obama really wanted to bundle the IDF out of East Jerusalem he could do it without risking a single GI: freeze the military aid, refuse to guarantee Israeli borrowings, and call in every outstanding loan that Israel has with the USA. End result: the IDF would be back to carts and donkeys within a year.
