    Syria, will not go to war with Israel. Unless they plan to unleash missiles with chemical agents. That alone would be madness. So, what's up with Hezbollah? Will they, once again pound Israeli cities,towns villages with thousands of missiles.? Nope, not unless they are high on hashish. Iran.? That is one country that is not only preparing for war, its preparing its proxies, sending in elite RG units, just to make sure that when the battle order is given, it will be obeyed. Contradictions.? Yes, that is about Hezbollah, for in reality, left alone, they will stick to politics and the occasional rantings by Mr.Nasrallah. Israel seeks peace, peace is like a wet piece of soap, the harder you clench your fist, the further it leaps away. We must also understand Mr.Ahmadinejad, he has some serious problems at home, not just economic, that is also with the ruling theocracy. I must comment, he has become a far more savoury and almost polished politician, for he plays the field with all and sundry. Now, do not get mad at me, especially the anti Iran crowd, for that's today's reality in politics. A great day to all. Cheers.
