The desert wildflowers. The scent of jasmine and frankensence. Small children playing in the streets. The roar of a Russian built anti-tank rocket fired directly at an Israeli school bus full of children... All indications are that Iran's plan for the destruction of Israel via coordinated attacks by Hamas militias, Hezbollah militias and Syrian regulars is ramping up. This time they have been supplied with advanced surface-to-surface multistage rockets with large warheads. These rockets can reach far into Israel and it is thought that the badguys have hundreds of them and thousands of smaller craft-built rockets they manufacture locally. The Iranians learned how to make shaped charges in the Iraq insurgency and those will be employed against Israeli ground forces. This time Lebanon is going down. It will be occupied and large parts of southern Lebanon will be destroyed. Beirut will be destabilized, again, and lapse into civil war, again. This time it isn't clear that Egypt will stay on the sidelines and there is some potential they would become a participant with the usual self-destructive outcome. Syria and Iran may find the fight brought to their doorsteps. You see, Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah aren't the only ones that have been preparing.
