The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.03:48 31.08.15 | 1 comments
Israel's strongest card is air power. Hezbullah has attempted to neutralize this instrument by events such as Qana. If this and similar instruments are much impeded, then Uzi Benziman's argument for a ceasefire is strengthened. The commando raid on Tyre shows the costs of going toe-to-toe: in this one event, two seriously wounded. When the US took Rome from the Nazis, and when the US conquered France, there were undoubtedly Italian and French civilians killed by the US. Ideally, Hezbullahstan should be eradicated. And howitzers are more efficient even than air strikes.
