Clinton warned Israel it would not be able to defend Israel in the event it was attacked due to the speed with which modern warfare moves. Israel has pushed for war over the past four years. It has tried to kick start it several times during that period. The last attempt was by bombing Syria. If Netanyahu gets his way he will start a war because it deflects from the Occupation and Israel can use it as an excuse to take what is left of Palestine under the guise it is doing so as a buffer for defensive purposes. It will be a highly dangerous choice and one Israel will not win. All it will achieve is high casualties and Israels demise.
