Six Days in June

President Awesome asserted that Israel must create a nation for knuckleheads, and return to the "pre-1967" borders.

Benjamin Netanyahu said "well, no".

Obumble didn't really care to hear that. He likely had no idea that when Israel fought for its survival in the 6-Day War, they faced Arab armies in M-48 Patton tanks. When they say "never again", they really mean it.

In June of 1967, almost a quarter-million Israeli troops, of which only 50,000 were regulars, the rest reservists faced off against a half-million Arab soldiers from Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Iraq. Israel prepared by collecting vital intelligence regarding enemy positions, and battle plans, and by launching a devasting air attack against the air forces of the combatants,

late Sunday update (thanks for reading you readers!).

Question asked by Conor Cruise O'Brien in "The Siege".

Does Israel have the right to exist?

Regardless of our answers, they think they do.

which resulted in Israel owning the airspace over the battlefield, a force multiplier for their smaller forces against the Arabs. At one point in the desperate struggle, Israel used training jets to strafe enemy runways, to keep them out of the fight.

They fought on three fronts, Gaza and the Sinai, the West Bank, and the Golan Heights. There are many good online references you can check out online to learn more about it. What stands out is, like 1948, and 1956, Israel knew they ultimately stood alone against their enemies. And it was up to them to fight back and win, or be annihilated. And by "annihilated", I mean completely Holocausted off the face of the planet.

Surrounded by their enemies, they taught their enemies "don't fuck with us"

I admire this sentiment.

June 5-10, 1967. I was eight.
