BBC: Iran nuclear programme: Threat of Israeli strike grows 

In the turquoise waters of the Red Sea, Israeli, Emirati and Bahraini naval forces for the first time just days ago rehearsed joint security operations with a US warship. 

It followed a war-game at a desert airbase just north of the Israeli port city of Eilat last month, which sent fighter planes from Israel and seven other countries roaring into the skies. 

Such drills aim to send a strong warning to Iran, which has recently been holding its own large military exercises, and stress strategic alliances. 

But they come at a time when many in Israel are worrying about whether this small country could soon feel forced to act alone to attack Iran's nuclear programme militarily.

Yawn. Boy cries wolf for the thousandth time.

Israel will talk a good game and do nothing. After losing two wars to Hezbollah they are in no hurry to lose a third.

Hezbollah won 2 wars? Did they gain any territory? Israel did not either. So we have to look for a different yard stick like casualties or damages in terms of money.

Or we can can whip it put and compare GDP. Israel has a good economy, Hezbollah the 800 lb gorilla of Lebanon does not.

But that might change if and when the Biden administrations sends helicopter money to Iran and breaks out the knee pads.

Hezbollah kicked Israel out of southern Lebanon in 2000.

Pyrrhic victory on Hezbollah's part. Where are they now? Israel did not lose Israeli territory and have an economy. Meanwhile it is lights out in Lebanon.

Israel did not want to pay the price for a buffer zone. In the future that might change and your Hezbo bois might get a kinetic enema.
