    So I was trying to see which of those conclusions was wrong. Which ones were wrong?

    Israel has expanded its borders after each try. You do realize that they have nukes, and if it comes down to their survival, they just might use them...

    It was a serious post. If it comes down to their survival against a nuclear armed Iran and conventional means were not adequate, I don't think they would hesitate to at least set off one as an EMP device, if not conventionally...

    If Russia decides to invade Israel, we will deal with that if it happens. Syria is a "small peanuts" player on the world stage, and is involved in a religious war that has gone on for centuries. They probably started out by throwing stones at each other, for all we know, but with chemical weapons now available, they have used them.. They are an ally of Iran, who is an ally of Russia. Are you saying that BHO might want a war with Iran/Russia over Syria, and eventually Israel? Even he is not that stupid! That's why we have the M.A.D. agreements. I think all the world's major powers agree that a possible WW3 is not in anyone's best interests! Saving face, or having to back down from an unfortunate off the cuff comment that was made, is not a good enough reason to escalate chaos in an already highly unstable area of the world! We need to stay out of it, or what you hypothesize may indeed occur!
