ISRAEL OKAYS MOBILIZING UP TO 75,000 TROOPS

Israel apparently prepares for a ground invasion of Gaza

Tanks and troops are massing on Israel’s border with Gaza, and on Friday evening, Israel’s cabinet authorized mobilization of up to 75,000 reservists, up from just 16,000 authorized the day before, with 30,000 already reporting for duty in their home districts. These moves are reactions to long-range rockets from Gaza reaching as far as Jerusalem, though without yet creating damage or casualties. But the vulnerability of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to rocket attacks from Gaza is causing Israel to get panicky.

Recall that in 2006, Israel went to war with Hizbollah in Lebanon, within four hours of the capture of two Israeli soldier, with no plan, and no objective, resulting in total chaos.”
