    Seriously, I think your leaders are either dumb or naive. Not to scare monger or anything, but there is actually a very, very good chance that Israel will get hit by chemical weapons from Syria in the next few month. Why? Because everyone knows, that there is no such thing as a nuclear detterent if you think that you are already going down. Regimes act differently when there is an imminent danger to their existence. Imagine the scenario; large portions of the Syria army start to defect, and the Assad regine and his Awalite allies calculate that the best way to save themselves from the abyss is to strike Haifa and Tel Aviv with rockets (Iran will offer them sanctuary after the strike is done), which I think is very probable, to rally people to their side. After all, what do they have to lose? A counterstrike? They are already screwed. They figures, lets get down with a bang as the people who attacked Israel...Is it a concidence that the another Baathist leader, Saddam Hussein who was 2000 miles away in Baghdad, resorted to this method when his existence was being threatened? Now imagine more advanced weapons and being only 200 miles away
