    So, the government of Israel is telling Israelis that ALL of their problems will go away if Israel makes a single strike upon Iran. Yet, the government of Israel tells it's citizens that Iran has made it possible for Hisbollah and Hamas to strike anywhere in Israel. So which is it? Are Hamas and Hisbollah the existential threats the Government of Israel claim? Or may ALL of Israel's problems be expunged by the act of a single attack upon Iran? What about another possibility? That the men running Israel today are just as deluded and demented as the men of the Bush Junta which proposed that invading Iraq would solve all of the problems of America, problems which only lunatics could see, and only monsters could propose to oppose? The lunatics of America could not answer HOW America would win in Iraq. The lunatics of Israel cannot answer HOW Israel will win the war they want to start.
