"It’s not that Israel has grown; it is the Arab world that shrank."

Gone are the days when the Syrian Army could launch a 5 division attack

supported by 188 artillery batteries in the Golan. The era when Egypt could mount an attack with 100,000 men, 1,350 tanks and 2,000 artillery pieces is nothing but memory. All around Israel's edges, countries are falling apart. Jordan is wracked by internal dissent, Syria paralyzed by a civil war that kills upwards of 200 people per day; Egypt bankrupt and will be lucky to avoid starvation. Libya is no more. Iraq is still prostrate. Oil in the Gulf is running out. -- Belmont Club サ The Last Man Standing
