Don't worry y'all, the thread is pointed at me and I can take my well-deserved lumps as well as anyone. I let my stupid pride in the efficiency of the IDF get away with me. Of course there's no such thing as a sure bet in this sort of warfare. I will never say 'never' again in anything pertaining to the IDF. Who knows, I might have jinxed them! Perish the thought! And [b]DaMan[/b] is quite within his rights to call me on this one, as well. I called him on his initial scoffing that Arabs could have been responsible for the Sept 11 hi-jackings, so it is his turn to gloat. I just wished I knew that he wasn't smiling as he contemplated the deaths of the IDF soldiers. Engaged in a War on Terrorism that, in almost every respect, mirrors our own. With the loss of a Merkava at the rate of one a month, they stand to be able to only last another two decades or so. [u]If[/u] they stop building any more.[:D] If they want to use the other 4,000 tanks at their disposal, well, let's just say they can stand that rate of attrition for quite a while.
