      That's why 50,000 of his elite troops where in Yemen at the time.  That's why Israel gained complete air superiority over three fronts which had more and better aircraft then it.  Because Israel launched a war of aggression and bombed all the aircraft that where sitting there in plain site.  

      Yup.  Please don't post revisionist history here.

        in fact, 50,000 of his elite troops with experience in Yemen were in Jordan, on the border of Israel. But why argue? There is one simple indisputable fact. Nassar announced that he mined the Straits. That is an act of war. Period. End of story.

        As for bombing aircraft in plain site, yes, they were caught with their pants down. Do you really think war is fought by the Marquis of Queensbury rules? Did Israel have a duty to send their second, then invite Egypt's airplanes up for man-to-man duels?
