No ground troops had been sent to the Incirlik Air Base, says Saudi general.11:03 14.02.16 | 0 comments
Back in 1973 during crucial moments of the devastating Yom Kippur war, concerned Israeli cries went out desperately inquiring, "Eifo Arik? Where is Arik? This was in reference to where this Israeli warrior was in the deserts of Sinai at any particular time with his command of a tank division staving off the brutal offensive of the Egyptian forces. If they learned that Arik was succeeding in tireless, ingenious, on-the-spot military counterattacks, then all of Israel took a collective sigh of relief. On the other hand, if Arik had been encountering setbacks of any sort, then there was great cause for worry amongst the Israelis as to the outcome of the war. The genuine cry of an Israeli commander to his troops before darting ahead in a mission to show his troops the way is, "Kadima, Acharai" (Forward! After Me). It is interesting to see Sharon now create his new Party, "Kadima", but this time to try and establish an offensive drive for peace with his Palestinian neighbors with the same heart of a lion that drove the Egyptian armies back. I wish you well Khaver, Khazak ve Baruch!
