" personally I think, and a possible indicator was El Al cancelling an order for some planes, is that Israel literally cannot afford to keep up with arms spending that is occuring in the region." What are you talking about. Do you ever stop to think before you post your multiple conspiracy theories. What has El AL got to do with the Israeli Goverment buying arms. El Al is a private company and like most airlines all over the world cancelled or delayed the purchase of new planes due to the recession. "Therefore Israel will go to war against the people of Lebanon in a twisted attempt to restore deterrent which was lost in 2006." Dont you ever get tired of making predictions all of which have never come to pass. It was really a great loss of detterence in 2006. Since 2006 How many rockets have been fired by Hezbollah , how many terror attacks and incursions across the border have happened . Who is still in hiding in a bunker. Time to write your M.P again. Poor pathetic Chris.
