Smells Like Overconfidence

Reader comment on item: Israel Has Nothing to Fear from Trump's Plan?

Submitted by Dave (United States), May 28, 2018 at 07:51

I hope that Israel will not let herself succumb to complacency after the recent string of accommodations and expressions of support from America. As nice as they have been, they are only the actions that a sane person would take in the face of the extremism and madness that afflicts the region. Just because the gauge is out of the red doesn't mean that it can't return to the danger zone, pushed by naivete, false hope and ignorance. As for friendly Trump, let's recall those wise words from that famous Chicago entrepreneur, Big Al Capone: "Never trust nobody".
