    Mark L. stated "Even so, many did not want to preempt. Eshkol only did so because Israel could not afford to be in a high alert status for months on end." Ah the old what if scenario. It's real easy to play with 40+ years of history. But such thoughts are usually saved for the comic section of the book store. Israel faced a real threat, it had limited resources. There is nothing that does not point to the idea that the Arab states could have gone back and forth to force Israel from ramping up its forces several times. There is nothing to point to the idea that France would have changed its mind over its arms embargo. There's nothing to point out that the US would have been ready and willing to fund Israel's call up or provide the military hardware/replacement parts necessary in the event of a call up several weeks or months down the line. It's very easy to come up with the 'correct' answer down the line but a farce to claim precognicance at the time.
