  1. So why are anatolian arabs Recep Tayyip Erdoclown and Ahmet Davutoglugluglu, despite their claims to the contrary, still egging on the next Gaza-bound arab-leftard flotilla of hate? My bet is, they want to go to war against Israel this time, possibly with Iranian, Syrian and Egyptian help.

    The good news is that, most likely, their war strategy will be based on “insh’allah”… Meaning, they’ll start a conflict believing that their prophet’s imaginary alter-ego will guide them to a victory. The Six-Day War showed us how effective such war-planning is.

  2. Proud_Kafir7908 you are right and you are wrong, with the exception of the first war when Israel declared its formation every time the war starts the US starts shipping small arms, artillery and tank ammo in by the plane loads on a 24/7 bases. This has allowed Israel to spend money on infrastructure and economic growth that otherwise would have been spend in stockpiling ammo. I like and support Israel but without large amounts of resupply on a daily bases they will run out of ammo within in a couple of weeks to a couple of months. The Arabs are counting on Obama stopping the resupply efforts long enough for them to win.

    I wish the situation was otherwise but this is a classic economic case of guns or butter, you have to make a decision on how to spend you limited resources. You can’t have large quantities without having a rich powerful friend to help you.

  3. Instead of looking at the 6 day war look at the last time Israel and Hezbollah fought, Hezbollah stood and knocked with Israel and was only pushed back when their ammo supply ran out. Since then they have been stockpiling much more ammo, so I really don’t think 6 days applies, it will be more like 6 weeks and unless Israel has managed to stock pile more ammo then previously they will be running short before without resupply.

    Always look at the latest war and plan for a much worse one, never look way back and expect that war to be repeated, and never count on you enemies not learning from you and planning to take advantage of any weakness they see.
