    One thing that the Syrians are not, is cowards. During desert storm, Bush the Great (not to be cofused with the baby bush) and the most powerful coalition in the history of the earth, discovered that behind the US, and perhaps the Brits, the Syrians were up front, ass in the grass (or sand) so to speak! As the Israelis have learned, the Syrians are not cowards. Another group that Israel would be uwise to consider cowards is the Iranians. Look to the losses they suffered in the Iran Iraq war, if you have doubts. Neither of these peoples depend on aircraft and missles to do their fighting. Can Israel claini the same, or do they only fight by disproportionate "prepping" (translation, carpet bomb and artilerty prep, to eleminate all vestigas of humans, military and civillian, prior to entering an area, as in cast lead and lebanon2? Perhaps those were military victories, but by winning those battles, they lost the moral high road, and support of the entire world!! Israel, consider well, how you fight your next "collective punishment war". You cannot afford many more "military victories", like your last two. Personally, I do not think you can afford even one more! I can recall no other nation has fallen out of world favor, so fast, and so completely!
