Where are you sitting?

There are only two possible views on this post-ceasefire period.

1. If you are in Paris, London or Stockholm it is likely that you see aggressive Israel firing everything it has at the almost defenseless Hezbollah and destroying Lebanon in the process.

2. If you are in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem or Haifa you see Iran and Syria mount a threatening and intimidating attack on Israel through its proxy Hezbollah and Israel making rather a mess of defending itself.

There is a history of Arab countries funding anti-Israel wars; countries which do not share borders with Israel are those able to fund billions for equipment, those with the oil money. It was Saudi Arabia, Libya and Kuwait funding Syria and Egypt in 1973. Now it is Iran funding Hezbollah.

More to come ...

From California's Monterey Bay view number 2 seems to be the most viable observation - if one has actual opened one's eyes to reality.

Glad you're still posting!
