    i can concede that this perhaps not the wisest move. but its comical to see all the talkbackers' (like talkbacks 1-5) witty criticism when Israel makes a move in this escalation game, but complete silence or even encouragement when there are reports of weapons flowing to Syria and Hezbollah (i especially like the way everyone talks about the illegality of israel but consistently fail to omit the UN resolutions about Hezb weapons). Talkbackers: its ok if you want to pick a side and cheer when they make a move you like, but please, stop saying silly things like " Mmmm..what if Iran positioned naval vesels of the coast of Israel," After all, Iran-Syria-Hezb have been escalating in word and deed for months with no Israel response....
