    It is unrealistic to believe that Israel's "silence" concerning its actions whether related to its nuclear stock pile or chemical weapons or to its recent attacks on Syria is effectively blinding the general public around the world of the facts. So the expectation that the children close their eyes and be silent while poppa does what he has to do is not what any people expects of their government.. The pictures of Israel's wonderful U.S. made WMDs, the pictures of large explosions in Syria undoubtedly killing many innocent people, Israeli soldiers preparing for war---isn't this array of images designed to give confidence to the Israeli people indicating that Netanyahu has everything under control? Aren't these the images given to the American people before GW launched his illegal was on Iraq? Netanyahu can take a trip to China while Israel is in danger of reprisals of one kind or another for having attacked Syria. What are the Chinese, the Russians, the Pakistani, the Indians, the Muslim world thinking and how are they preparing for U.S.-Israeli efforts to maintain the balance of power in their favor no matter the costs? We have entered another sad period in the lives of families around the world.
