Egypt coordinated with Israel on the attack and opened its airspace to the Israeli jets flying to Libya.Yes, and word also reaches Cold Spring Shops of the Sillies beheading a Hamas official somewhere in the Middle East.
Whatever else you may say about Iran, its active intervention into the Arab world has forced Sunni Arab countries into a de facto alliance with Israel.

Perhaps this is one crisis that won’t go to waste (if it doesn’t provoke Armageddon).
Any way for the United States to sit this one out?
