They have a better knowledge of the terrain, they have modern equipment, a motivated population, defensible positions, a powerful air force, a fantastic intelligence network (military and covert) and have received billions to tens of billions in US aid.

Oh, and they've really not faced a truly determined (conventional) fight yet.

I'd have to disagree with that statement. Their opponents have been plenty determined but generally not as well equipped as Israel and not nearly as well trained. Still, by shear numerical advantage, it SHOULD have made up for what they lacked in equipment, but it didn't.

They have God on their side, the '67 war proved that. Go ahead and laugh, but It is a legitamite argument based on the evidence of what Israel had faced.

I agree with Airborne, they havent fought a strong military yet just poorly trained men with not the greatest equipment. I do think they would do well verse a real enemy tho. Their training is up there with the brits and Americans which is what makes them what they are.

Israel was able to call up 90% of their reserves in 3 days and throw them in the fight after a surprise attack. There is no way that the US can ever match that. I am in the US Army Reserves and I have heard some horror stories on units taking months to become deployable.
