    Rbart: "Israel would likely have to absorb the first round, but after that the gloves would be off." I doubt it, Tbart, unless the "first round" is claimed by Israel to be some puny infiltration by Hezbollah or Syrian forces into Shabaa Farms. Otherwise Israel will simply yell "They're going to attack! They're going to attack!" and launch their own armored offensive towards Damascus, using masses of tanks that were oh-so-conveniently placed in the Golan Heights. Worked for Israel in 1956 and in 1967 in the Sinai, worked for Israel in 1982 in Lebanon. After all, in all the years since the Armistice in 1949 the IDF has only ever been attacked by a foreign national army exactly once, in 1973, and that in a war fought entirely inside Arab territory and not on a single inch of Israeli soil. History says it'll be the IDF that launches the war, not the other way around.
