indicating the complexity of war decisions facing small nations in a region dominated by large powers...

Kudos to Y-net on one of the best written articles published over the past year.
2. Israel doesn't need Arab or Russian permission to strike

israel has much more advanced weapons of all kinds.
the sunni arab states are much more inclined to cooperate with israel.
the major problem is the hundreds of thousands of missiles pointed
at the entirety of israel from lebanon, syria and iraq.
it was a mistake that hezbollah missiles were allowed to stay in lebanon.
the obama regime was a catastrophe for israel and for the entire region.
already many lives have been lost and many more will be lost
because of obama's policies.

8. Biggest lesson

Failure to respond during gulf war has led to subsequent missile attacks. Israel should have said that any missile coming to israel would be assumed to be chemical or nuclear and would respond immediately before the missile falls IN KIND (ie, nuclear attack). And should have done so. That would have sent the message. Baghdad would be destroyed and the world would know to leave us alone.
