Israel presents new deterrence policy

IDF chief Gantz unveils new policy whereby any firing from Gaza, Sinai will be met with attack on Hamas, fire from Lebanon will result in attack on Hezbollah and any overseas attack will prompt response against Iran

Speaking at a conference in the Gelilot base, Gantz discussed the many threats Israel faces. "The IDF is Israel's sharpened sword and protector," he noted. He also addressed the firing of rockets at Eilat on Wednesday night.

Gantz warned that "anyone who tries to test us, domestically or overseas, will find a sophisticated army ready to defend Israel and subdue its enemies."

Alluding to recent terror attacks in India, Thailand and Georgia, the IDF chief said, "We know the source of these attacks and those behind them must know that Israel's long arm will ultimately reach anyone who seeks to harm Israeli civilians and the Jewish people, Whether in Gaza, Lebanon or anywhere else."

3. Sounds like the usual incoherent babble to me.

If you were out somewheres talking to this guy, and he was talking like this, what would you think?

5. Well, insecurity is the word I would use.

But yeah, as I have said before, about sixth grade level. And it seems to be accepted that this is good, sound international politics, not some sort of weakness or flaw to be babbling on like that all the time. Personally I think looking insecure is a bad idea, but then I'm sure Benny thinks he is looking tough.
