War. What is it good for?

If you're Iran and Syria, the answer apparently is "Quite a lot". If you don't think that the signs out of Israel's north are ominous, check out these stories. On one hand, we have Hezbollah using Iranian money to buy out land owned by Druze and Christian Lebanese so that they can have better vantage points to launch missiles at Israel: So much for that UNIFIL force.

On the other hand, we have the Syrians arming themselves with the world's most sophisticated anti-aircraft systems (thanks to my favourite anti-Semites, the Russians):,7340,L-3436827,00.html. The Syrians aren't buying this stuff for their health. They are planning for an eventual and inevitable war with Israel, one that will undoubtedly take the West by surprise, though that should not be the case given the signs out of the region.

Be ready, my friends, be ready. This will be a bloody, messy affair, and the outcome is by no means certain............

It's gonna suck, that's for sure. Especially from my vantage point.

However, I think that Israel can win, if the government lets the army do its job this time.
