Of course, I disagree. If Mr. Netanyahu were going to attack, he would just do it. He is agitating for the US to attack. Israel is the strongest military power in the Middle East, and it can protect itself if attacked. Due to demographics and other changes, that may not be true in the future, and that is what worries them. As we have seen, the US is fast losing its ability to control what happens around the world. For us to engage in another conflict now when we are entangled in 2 wars already and we are BROKE, would only hasten our own destruction.

How about we fix the US first?

Just out of curiosity; are you a Ron Paul fan?

The main reason the "kinetic operations" we are now engaged in are flpps is our lack of resolve to actually make them hurt. In a way, I almost agree with you - if we aren't going to let them taste our steel, we need to be out of there. On the flip side, it will only do what the Fed is doing to the economy - put the facade of "success" on it until it's so broken that the final crash is going to be ten times as serious as it should be. "Fixing the US first" will require much domestic pain and the willingness to make our enemies fear us instead of hating and killing us with disdain and the next best thing to impunity.
