    Why hasn't Israel called up its entire reserve force. To have a credible threat there has to be a credible force. The US troops are busy. My own state's National Guard is already in Iraq - tied up. Half the US Navy is at sea already. Where is the Israeli Navy? Is it in the Persian Gulf, locked and loaded? US Reserves are already called up and in battle or preparing for battle in Iraq, Afghanistan and Korea. If the Israeli government wants a threat, call up your reserves and put them on ships in the Persian Gulf. And get the EU to put up a million-man force -aboard ship in the Persian Gulf. Where are all your seaborne Marines? Where are all the Aussie troops? You want a threat, put your butts ON THE LINE and keep them there for a year or two. Put up or Shut up, Bibi.
