I don't accept your premise...but if true, what are the lessons learned from 1973. If Israel is threatened...she should protect herself. Until Israel is willing to do what's necessary to protect herself from the Iranian threat...I'm going to be unwilling to sacrifice my sons and daughters on her behalf. What I extrapolate is that Netanyahu thinks that dead Americans are preferable to dead Israelis. My preference is...everybody stays alive.
