    Arabs have been attempting to annihilate each other even long before the Jews came into the picture, only difference now is that they have a common enemy. What do you think will happen when black gold starts running out in the region and the world's superpower no longer give a damn about them such like in Africa?

    One need not look too far away from the Iran–Iraq War between Shi'ites and Sunnis which lasted for almost 8 entire years and in which Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD) was used rampantly.

    Despite all the sabre rattling I'm rather interested though to what was said behind closed doors throughout those numerous "private visits" instead BTW IIRC one of Chen Shui-Bian's cabinet minister did apologise over the public uproar from the Taiwanese people? Years ago during Starlight, in the ops room of Hukou Camp the S3 or Ops Warrant actually pinned up a newspaper article with remarks by a Singaporean government official (which I can't remember who exactly) requesting the PRC / PLA to notify us in advance in the event that they are planning to invade ROC just so as we could evacuate or pull our Starlight personnel off and we always find that rather ironic.

    A quote from someone from China regarding the whole China-Taiwan issue:
    Fight the Japanese? I will donate all my money and sacrifice my life!
    Fight the Americans? I will donate some of my money, but won't sacrifice my life.
    Fight the Taiwanese? Er...
    IIRC in Wikileaks, some high-ranking PRC defense official/general was quoted as asking Old Lee to stop all military exercises with Taiwan. That person even offered Hainan island as alternative. Old Lee told him if he did that the Americans will stop selling weapons to SG.

    Watched the TV news video. Saw the Israeli army parking its armour infantry vehicles (looked like M113) and Merkava tanks neatly, closely together. That is not tactical. An enemy attack can just destroy them all conveniently arranged in a row.
    That is what happened to German armour in WW2 when P51s picked them off with armour piercing rockets.

    The Israelis should not underestimate their enemy. Israel made that mistake in the 1973 Yom Kippur war.

    Why publicise the location and layout of their forces? Even CNN reporters know.

    If they want to launch an attack, why tell the whole world they mobilised 75,000 troops and keep showing videos of their armour on CNN, Fox News, etc...What happened to element of surprise in any attack.

    If the idea is just to go on endlessly posturing and posing with no intention to actually attack, then Hamas will get tired of it and - yawn....

    It should be just a show of force. No wide angle lens can take in more them a Couple of tanks in battle Formation. The tanks shown must be park far away in the safe zone for a media day out and photo taking session. The media plays an important part in modern warfare.

    From an intelligence analyst standpoint, Hainan was never an option for us even without the objection of Uncle Sam. The PLA operate a massive ELINT and SIGINT facility there, unless we conduct training under a partial or complete comms blackout to minimise potentially compromised emanations of electromagnetic waves. Those backstabbing electron sniffing snoops will be gathering a huge mountain of valuable information in their hands.

    A senior ROC Army officer once said to me that we as a nation is actually a seasoned two-timing diplomatic ******* (in their usual vulgar self) discreetly playing both sides simultaneously in the case of Myanmar, North Korea etc. etc to the best of our national advantage. A rather valid observation I would say.

    Singapore's national ideology is pragmatism after all.
    When you got nothing but your wits, you do what's necessary.
