    The French interrupted, but I’m not so sure about the reality.


    In thanks for their (useless) support in ‘56 to keep Suez in European hands, France supplied Israel with the weapons they used to win the 6-Day War.


    Then France said Israel had to give back conquered lands and cut off their supply of French matériel, and that rôle had to be assumed by the US (and, with US support, Israel didn’t do nearly as well in ’73 as in the 6-Day War, so it looks like French provided better matériel than the US did).


    In any case, Netanyahu takes full credit for the French refusal to sign an agreement that was entirely drafted by the US and Iran with no inputs from any of the other P5+1.

    Israel did so well in the Six Day War because they launched the war with pre-emptive strikes. They were about to be attacked, but the US and other countries said, “Bad Israel, Bad Israel! You started a war.”

    In 1973, they waited for the enemy to attack and took much heavier losses.

    Yet, those losses may not have been in vain. Egypt, under Anwar Sadat, was not humiliated as it had been under Nasser. So Sadat could meet with the Israelis later and make peace.

    Can’t believe we are just going to let them build away and lift sanctions, we are stupid.

    At least he’s not campaigning for ObamaCare while he’s putting. Put the time down to as a credit to Mistakes Not Made.

    The stupid part is trying to sell the false idea that Iran is building nuclear weapons. Not a lick of proof of that. Just scare mongering innuendo from the USA and Israel. Both of whom are loaded with nukes.
