    They've got heart. They don't beg or grovel. No one pulls their strings nor restrains their freedom of action. You don't see their leaders shuttling off to Russia and China beseeching them for help in their negotiations with the West; nor pleading with them for military support; even as the fateful attack looms off in the distance. Subjected to unrelenting threats for the past 6 years they suddenly announce that they're boosting enrichment to 20%; all after the discovery of a 'secret' facility they built inside a friggin' mountain, no less. Uh-uh, these aren't the Arabs that Israel (used to) regularly trounce. Israel now faces very clever, industrialized people who are acting as cool as cucumbers. Steady and resolute. Almost HOPING for an attack; as though the form(s) of retaliation were already planned and put into place some time ago, awaiting the war-bluster of Israel's present PM. Things could go VERY wrong for Israel in the next 90 to 120 days. It needs to have a care.
