Why is it that whenever we hear any news about anyone arming in the ME Israel starts whining about "the balance of power"? Why is it allowed for Israel to arm itself to the teeth, and if someone else got any weapons, people start crying! Not that I support Syria or HA, but when Syria was going to get weapons from Russia, Israel complained about "the balance of power" being altered, when we hear of HA getting weapons, Israel complains about "the balance of power" shifting. Just as Irael has the right to have weapons to defend itself, other countries have the right to defend themselves, whether Israel likes it or not!!! I guess that Israel wants to be able to waltz into Lebanese airspace and bomb away without any air defences and to beat the crap out of civilians without any response either. It's like a heavy weight boxer going against a 5 year old...wow, now that's bravery....
