    I really hope that if Israel does decide to attack, it does school it pilots in recognition of the American flag.. It's unlikely that US ships are steaming in the Gulf with their defensive systems on "Stand-by." The former captain of the USS Stark can attest to that. It would be a shame if an Israeli pilot had flag recognition problems. It would also be a shame if the IAF decides to overfly US allies in the Gulf. They are well equipped and might not blithely accept violation of their airspace. This would apply particularly to Iraq whose airspace the US is obliged by written agreement to defend. The US cannot and probably wouldn't try to stop you from starting WW III. But don't count on the US to follow or back your politician's insanity. Bush wouldn't and it's doubtful Obama would, either. Those hoping Obama fails should remember that if he does or is not taken seriously because Iran doesn't consider him legitimate, may just see an Iranian nuclear weapon as a result.
