    Preemptive Strike:

    United States

    In the years following the 1958 Iraqi revolution, the United States enjoyed friendly, if sometimes tense, relationships with Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia and Morocco. U.S.-Egyptian relations cooled, however, following President Nasser’s 1962 deployment of Egyptian troops to Yemen to fight Saudi-supported royalists. The U.S. in turn aided their Saudi allies, a critical oil source.

    In Israel: The Embattled Ally, Nadav Safran notes that Egyptian involvement in the Yemen war also impacted relations with the Americans vis-a-vis the question of Israel. As Egypt built up its military capabilities during the Yemen war, the Israelis approached the Americans for weapons and diplomatic assistance. U.S. military aid to Israel had been negligible, but in 1963 the Americans approved the transfer of Hawk surface-to-air missiles to Israel and recommitted to Israel’s security and the need to maintain a regional balance of power. By 1965, under the leadership of President Lyndon B. Johnson, the United States cut its economic assistance to Egypt, and U.S.-Egypt relations reached a nadir, pushing the Egyptians closing to the Soviets. The Soviets exploited the Arab-Israeli conflict and American "imperialism" to promote pro-Soviet Arab unity, turning the region in an arena for a proxy power struggle between the USSR and the Americans.

    The Americans’ role in the 1967 war was also influenced by its earlier involvement in the 1956 Suez Canal crisis. President Dwight Eisenhower pressured Israel to withdraw from Sharm el-Sheikh despite the fact that the Egyptians did not offer any concessions in return. Significantly, though, Eisenhower did pledge that the U.S. would guarantee Israel’s right of passage in the Straits of Tiran. The Americans also sponsored a United Nations resolution establishing the United Nations Emergency Force presence between the Egyptians and the Israelis.

    During the run up to the Six-Day War, the Americans repeatedly rebuffed Israeli requests for military aid and approval for an Israeli preemptive attack on Egypt. The United States, bogged down in Vietnam and facing domestic opposition to that war, was loathe to become embroiled in a second front. Rather than get involved militarily, the Americans aggressively pursued diplomatic solutions and sought to cobble together an international regatta to challenge the Egyptian blockade on Israeli shipping in the Straits of Tiran, a campaign that ultimately failed. But while the U.S. continued to refuse to aid Israel militarily, the American opposition to unilateral Israeli action began to soften in the beginning of June 1967.

    Arabs were beating the drums of war and how the moment to destroy the Jewish state had arrived. They mobilized all their troops at their borders with Israel, and their leaders went on national TV declaring "they will drive the Jews into the sea". We all know what happened after that. While their leaders were claiming "victory over the Jews" their soldiers kissing Israeli soldiers' boots in the Sinai desert. It was after 1967 that the US realized Arabs had become client states of the USSR and therefore to balance the situation started getting closer to Israel. Those are the facts.

    They want a redo. Problem is, even if they do a redo, they will still get their asses kicked.

    Look 'Ol Hoss, the thing is that when Israel allowed the snake Begin to form his Right Wing unity Government, Israel lost its Moral character to be "A light upon the world" to a blight upon the world. The idea of the Kibbutz’s , and sharing the land were over.

    Begin was a Terrorist in his heyday and Israel adopted his philosophy and original Zionism which wanted to just share the land, died.

    That's what it is today.

    The problem with you Christian Right Wingers is that you use an ancient Jewish Text (old testament/torah to rewrite history. I on the other hand am a realist who sees the destruction of the Jews for the thousand time in the future if she doesn't become part of the fabric of the ME and make peace before the oil runs out.

    That's why the USA does not recognize the 67 land thefts. Keep the oil flowing...after that Israel will be left alone with Sampson to start Ammageddon.

    Not a Christian, but a Righty, I contradict your thesis that Israel must comply. I insist that the worm has turned and Israel writes the rules and lays down the law in her domain. Now that's my personal opinion and involves no one else here. Bring it on, Mahoud.
