Hi Pied Piper... I like your erudition re Sun Tzu...it sort of backs up a comment I evoked while in Israel . I asked a High ranking Israeli officer why the 9/11 attack was not aimed at Israel, as it could have destroyed the Knesset and perhaps allowed a successful and overwhelming Pan-Arabic attack on that brave, little, beleagured democracy. His guarded but candid reply has haunted me for some years. He said that the arabs "would not dare".It seems there is a "line in the sand" which, if ever the Arab world crosses intentionally, will see the whole of the middle east turned into as ashtray. his last words were an emphatic...AND THEY KNOW IT TOO WELL !!
