The first flotilla gained the world's attention and showed the incompetence of the IDF as well as that of the Israeli government. The next flotilla will have the eyes of the world upon it every step of the way. Another chance for Israel to do what Israel does best. The 2006 war, the Gaza op, the Dubai fiasco, and the first flotilla all have something in common. They all demonstrated Israel's bad decision making and incompetence and they all required that America step in and offer political support to help Israel avoid responsibility for it's actions. You may think that this is new, but it has been going on for decades.
