    This current flare up of the Conflict between Hamas and Israel could very well be the Spark that sets off a Regional war.

    The big difference between this time and 2008 is of course that Mubarak is gone. It is yet to be seen, but if Egypt gets into it that could be all it takes.

    It also could be used by Syria to distract and Unite it's people against Israel.

    Very touchy situation here, I pray cooler heads on Both sides prevail.

    According to AP as of late Thursday at least 12 trucks transporting tanks and APCs along with a number of busses carrying soldiers were moving toward the Gaza border. Netanyahu has called up 30,000 reservists for a possible ground invasion.

    Morsi of Egypt renewed his warning on Thursday that his country considers Israel's assault on Gaza an act of outright aggression and vowed to stand by Palestinians.

    Stay tuned?

    That number has been upped to 75,000 reservists.. and Israel is travelling towards the gaza border.. I think a ground war is inevitable, as the Hama militants likely will not back down, especially if they start receiving support from Egypt, the west bank, Iran. Etc.

    This could get messy..especially if the U.S intervene

    Shades of "73?

    "The war began when the coalition launched a joint surprise attack on Israel on Yom Kippur, the holiest day in Judaism, which happened to occur that year during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Egyptian and Syrian forces crossed ceasefire lines to enter the Israeli-held Sinai Peninsula and Golan Heights respectively, which had been captured and occupied since the 1967 Six-Day War.

    "Both the United States and the Soviet Union initiated massive resupply efforts to their respective allies during the war, and this led to a near-confrontation between the two nuclear superpowers.[36]"
