A very real possibility. That's what Saddam tried to do during the first Gulf War when he fired the Scuds into Israel, he wanted to draw the entire Arab world onto his side.
Too bad Israel doesn’t flatten the whole mess.
We shouldn’t build any more nuclear bombs until we use the old ones...
...and I have a list of targets in my hand.
I recall a top of the hour CBS radio broadcast at the time. They jumped the gun and said that Israeli fighter jets were retaliating by bombing targets in Iraq. It turned out to be completely wrong.
In a little talked-about war in Congo-Brazzaville, the same thing began happening to a military camp in the across-the-river country of Congo-Kinshasa. Everyone knew it was the attempt of one side to draw the neighbor into the conflict, but there was debate about which side was doing it. The question was tacitly answered when the government warned their neighbor not to intervene. Why wouldn’t it be the “bros?” They win the publicity war either way—especially since the media is complicit.
