This Fitzpatrick fellow does not say how the IAF will overcome problems of range and territorial overflight. This alone earns him an F- in my seminar. Secondly he cannot assume that Israel has more freedom of action in an election year – as if there are non-election years in the US. Already the US has twisted Israel’s arm to accept Hamas’s terms to the Shalit release, has fired Dennis Ross, has agreed to continue funding the PA despite the UN bid and the UNESCO membership, has called Netanyahu a tiresome liar, and is looking with a benign eye on the PLO-Hamas reconciliation, and there has been not a single peep from Ileana Ros-Lehtinen concerning any of the above. Some election year, except for the hubris.
